Description

Adorable two-story cottage in Codfish Park, Sconset. Steps to beautiful ocean beach. Small, but all amenities are included in this well designed, bright, airy and open cottage. Large deck for sunbathing, lounging, bbq'ing and dining under the beautiful star-filled skies at night. Balcony off bedroom perfect for morning coffee, evening cocktails or night-time star gazing. Two minute walk to the Sconset Market and the Shuttle Bus that can take you into Town or anywhere else on the Island. You can leave your car at home and be very comfortable in this location. Even though it's one bedroom, a futon in the living area will accommodate another two people. We have two bikes (and helmets) available for your use as well as beach towels and chairs, an umbrella and cooler. And if you are lucky you will see lots of seals in the water at the beach, as we usually do.

Please note: My reviews are older since I am coming back to listing with weneedavacation after being with Homeaway for several years. All recent Homeaway reviews were favorable also.

Special place

My wife and I have stayed here for the last two summers. This is the real thing. If you are looking for a slow, relaxing, and memorable vacation, come to Whalesback. Sconset is on the quiet side of the island. You need to bring your car because it is a fifteen minute drive from the ferry, but you get to experience the best town in Nantucket. The beach 200 feet from your door is the nicest on the island. There is a beautiful walking path on the street above to look out at the ocean and be amazed by the multimillion dollar homes, but you still have the best house location and beach access at Whalesback.

The town center of Sconset is really a three minute walk with a beautiful old general store, and has the best restaurant, Sconset Cafe, on the island. It is a one bedroom with a small balcony, but also has a wonderful outside deck just through the first floor french doors to read and relax in the Adirondack chairs. I have been on many vacations with my wife, but this is by far our favorite. We are already excited about our next year summer stay at Whalesback.

Thanks for this nice review. You mention so many of the reasons why we fell in love with Codfish Park and Whalesback many years ago. While a car is convenient, it isn't necessary when visiting "in season" since it is also convenient to use the Wave shuttle bus.

Great place!

Great place. Very clean and comfortable. Very accommodating. Equipped with everything we needed (bikes, beach towels, beach chairs, games, books, movies, Internet). The little kitchen was perfect for cooking when you don't want to go out. The location is perfect... Walk to the beach... walk to the market.... walk to the restaurants - everything is just a few steps away. Famous beautiful Sconset Bluff Walk starts just above the cottage. The owner was sweet and very helpful, from reservations all the way through to our stay. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I would recommend this little gem to anyone. show more show less

It's like another Country in Nantucket, especially at "The Whalesback".

Sconset is the Best

We think Sconset in July is one of the most beautiful places anywhere, and Whalesback is a wonderful place to stay. The privet and roses, rosa rugosa, honeysuckle, and cottage gardens were all in bloom, and the smells as well as the sounds and sights, were heavenly. Sconset is good for the soul.

A peaceful retreat

What a lovely place! The sound of the ocean, the scent of the flowers, the antics of the seals--all was perfect. We spent part of each day on the beach, and then explored Sconset and the island, taking the very convenient shuttle into Nantucket Town for dinner and even a sunset cruise. We started each day by sitting on the deck off of the bedroom with our morning coffee, watching the ocean and listening to the birds. What a peaceful place! We hope to visit Whalesback again next year!

It’s been another wonderful, relaxing week at the ‘Whalesback’. As always the walks in the a.m. on the beach …

The Whalesback is a very special place. It is a place of rest, peace and a beautiful part of the Nantucket experience. Sconset brings you back to the simplicity of an island vacation and also ensures a memorable one. The sound of the waves at night, walks for morning coffee at the market, jogging along the beach, the Sconset sunrises … It’s always hard to leave … but the anticipation of returning always helps.

We had a wonderful time at your cottage. It is so close to the ocean – we loved hearing the waves crashing at night.
