Description

Description

This warm and private, 1850's Nantucket Island half-Cape has every amenity a vacation rental home can offer while incorporating an experience in a traditional Nantucket in-town residence. Located in the Old Historic District of Nantucket Town, it is situated on a quiet one-way lane just minutes from Main Street and convenient to all of the activities of the Island. The property offers off-street parking and a private fenced yard with patio. Note that one of the great features about the location of the house is its proximity to Straight Wharf, downtown, and most of the Nantucket centerpieces of activity — all within a short walking distance. Additionally, most of the island transportation services are close by including public busing and van taxis, both at very modest expense. Please do not feel compelled to bring a car over. It only adds to the logistical
challenges of planning at a substantial cost. Don’t let the expense and logistics in getting a vehicle over to the island deter you from a true vacation thirty miles out to sea!

The home has three bedrooms and three baths, accommodating up to six people; living-room, dining room, gourmet kitchen; chef's pantry; and laundry/mud room. This 1850 antique half-Cape was completely renovated in 2004. The entire house is completely insulated. The house is heated with radiant heat. There is new plumbing and wiring throughout along with new interior walls. The gourmet kitchen has an antique heart pine floor, hickory cabinets, four burner with griddle gas dual fuel range and granite counters. Appliances are state-of-the-art. All three bedrooms are on the second floor (two queens and two twins).

General Comments: Situated on a quiet one-way street with minimal traffic, this inviting home is tranquil and meets all of your living needs. Easy eight minute walk to Main Street. There is no public street parking at the house location. There is an island shuttle bus stop is at end of Weymouth Street.

House Description: The house is a circa 1850 half-Cape. It was completely remodeled and updated in 2004. There are three full baths in the home; two new full baths, one on the first floor, one on the second floor, each with a shower and a remodeled full bath with tub on the second floor. All three bedrooms are on the second floor: two queen sized and two twin beds. It has a state-of-the-art kitchen and is comfortable for a couple or a party of six. The patio has a private bricked in area with a gas grill. There is ample off-street parking for one car.

High speed wi-fi internet access is available at the house. Television is available through Chromecast on each television linked to your streaming service. The house does not provide a streaming service.

From June 3 to September 9, rentals are minimum one week, Saturday to Saturday. Both before and after those dates, weekend, three, and four day rentals are available as reflected in the Availability link. Pricing is determined by time of year, length of stay, and number of people. Three and four day rental blocks are available. Please include number in group and length of proposed rental.

    I've stayed at many different accommodations (inns, hotels, etc.) around Nantucket over the years, so I can confidently say this is one of the best. While the photos do a fine job of conveying the space, nothing compares to the way the cottage feels--it just feels good, the way you imagine an island cottage from the 1850s to feel. From the moment my husband and I stepped inside, we couldn't stop talking about how it was just what we'd been looking for all these visits to the island. The cottage is larger than you think, so there's plenty of room to spread out and find privacy if you need it. As for the host, Greg was personable, flexible, and beyond accommodating; could've chatted with him for a long time! The location is a 7-minute walk to Main St, yet quiet and private. As a lover of character and old houses, I think this cottage is great the way it is. I can't wait to visit again next year! show more show less

    Excellent stay in town at 6 weymouth

    We enjoyed our stay at Greg's house in town. It was clean and worked perfect for us. Internet worked great as my wife had to work remotely. We had our car because we like to travel all around the island but the house is close enough to everything where a car is definitely not needed.

    Home Away From Home

    This was our 8th summer renting Greg's house! We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else! The backyard is just a dream to sit, relax, barbecue and hand out with friends. Walking distance to town makes everything SO convenient. The spacious kitchen (we live in NYC) is a dream to cook in. We truly couldn't imagine staying anywhere else and have already booked for next summer. Greg is super responsive and an excellent host. Thanks Greg! See you next summer!

    We Keep Coming Back

    We've rented this house multiple times over the past 5 years and have always enjoyed returning to the place we call 'home' on Nantucket. The history and charm of the house is exactly what we seek and the central location makes it easy for us to spend the week on island with bikes heading to town or to the beach.

    Another Memorable Stay

    This is the second time my family and I stayed at Greg's property and just as the first time, we were very pleased. The house is well equipped with everything a family would need for an extended stay and is well situated just outside of town - ~10 minute walk. Greg's place is our first choice anytime we consider a stay on the island.

    Our Home Away From Home!

    Greg's charming home is our home! This is our 8th year (I believe) staying here in a row and we just love it. It's inviting, charming with the greatest backyard and outdoor shower. A true Nantucket feel.

    A 10 min walk to downtown is just unbeatable! We have already booked our vacation next year.

    I have been renting out to vacationers since 1991. I understand the amenities needed by parties for an enjoyable stay in Nantucket. This house is a short walk of about eight or nine minutes to Main Street. You do not need a car to enjoy this house and the island. The shuttle bus is very inexpensive to use and will take you anywhere on the island. I have had scores of satisfied renters over thirty-one years. I am on this website venue simply due to the fact that it more than adequately serves the vacation needs of those wishing to rent a Nantucket in-town house and want to avoid the booking fees charged by other vacation websites. You will find me to be reliable and easy to deal with in setting up your Nantucket rental. I look forward to assisting you in securing your Nantucket vacation rental, whether it is for a weekend or for a week or more.

    What is special about this property?
    This home is an original 1850 half-Cape which represents the Old Nantucket in every sense integrated with amenities as to living comfort. It has been updated with all of the features you would expect in a vacation rental: gourmet kitchen, two new bathrooms (with showers) and a restored half-bath with tub, a quiet and private patio, retained architectural features such as wood plank floors and decoration consistent with its period. It is not "faux Nantucket". Simply put, it is warm and cozy, inside and out, without the feeling of too much or too little house. It is the perfect fit. Our family loves it. Countless numbers of vacationers have shared this home with us as their vacation rental, many of which return year after year. My never ending goal is to create an atmosphere of warmth and utility that fits in to your visit as though you resided there yourself.

    What is special about your town?
    Nothing compares to the unique beauty of Nantucket. It is like being in another world, yet only thirty miles off the New England coast. The house is just a short ten minute walk to Main Street and its abundant cultural attractions and social activities. Shops, art galleries, eateries, museums, and always something or some activity provide a never ending atmosphere of things to do. The harbor and its yachts are breathtaking. The beaches are boundless, pristine, and beautiful.
