Heaven on earth

We enjoyed our week in Fred’s Shed out in beautiful Sconset! So peaceful and relaxing -- we wanted for nothing but more time! We had more company for dinner than we do at home and everyone was comfortable. This little place was just right for us. The ocean view is amazing with spectacular sunrises everyday! The convenience of the village with some of Nantucket’s best eateries. I hope to share with family and friends as one of the most awesome vacation rentals we have had . I almost forgot to mention the wonderful sisters who hosted us carrying on the amazing history of their family and some really wonderful traditions of leaving flowers , chocolates and wine to welcome you . show more show less

Summer in Sconset

We happily returned to Fred Shed this past July and it was wonderful! The cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly need! The view is amazing and it was so clean and comfy. We rented the cottage from Karla and Thea's mother many years ago....she always welcomed us and made us feel right at home, her daughters did the same! We loved it there and hope to return soon! Thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven in Sconset! Magical!!!!

Perfect Vacation Cottage
If you are looking for a charming, cozy, comfortable, peaceful ocean-facing spot in Sconset, this is your rental. Fred's Shed has everything you need to feel at home on vacation - comfortable, sun-lit living room with french doors looking out to the ocean and amazing sun/moon rises, complete kitchen (even though it's tiny) and quiet bedroom with king bed made with good linens. There's a washer/dryer, wifi, tv with cable. The cottage is steps away from Sconset center, on a quiet shell-lined foot path (no cars) - parking is always available in Sconset public parking, 50-75 steps away.

Owner Karla is on-island and always available (though after several years of renting, I've never had a problem as a renter) - both owners are incredibly welcoming, kind and responsive - very much an added pleasure to renting this cottage. Fred's Shed is kept immaculately clean and upon arrival, fresh flowers are found in every room. Outside there is a small yard with table, chairs and umbrella and two lounge chairs - all in perfect condition and within earshot of the waves on the beach. The beach is a 5 minute walk out the door. Within steps from the cottage door, you can get a coffee or sandwich at Claudette's, shop at the Sconset Market and catch the island bus - very convenient for renters without a car. If you like to walk, the Cliff Walk along the Sconset Bluffs is right out the door and the Sankaty Head Lighthouse is 1.5 miles away. Restaurants within walking distance include Chanticleer and the Summer House. I can't speak more enthusiastically about a vacation rental - it is truly a special spot and place to find peace, comfort and vacation joy.

A True Vacation!!
At Fred's Shed, with its exquisite petite charm in the sweet and winding 17th C village of 'Sconset at the easternmost edge of Nantucket, with spectacular views of the ever-changing ocean and sky which I watch through French doors opening the living room wall, we experience precious peace and quietude. For going on eight years vacationing there, we experience our only true vacation from a frantic, demanded-upon everyday life. In a chaise overlooking the ocean, I read local author Nathaniel Philbrick. My husband explores the island by bike, along its myriad paths through surprisingly diverse landscape. I fiddle; Fred's Shed neighbors have over the years listened to me improve (I hope). I needlepoint. I weave on my portable loom. In town, we roam the evocative Whaling Museum. I browse antique shops, the local fabric shop, Nantucket Weavers' studio. We shop for beautiful fresh foods and, back at Fred's Shed, we open-fire grill while sipping a local wine and listening to the crashing of waves. We treasure our time at Fred's Shed. I wish this experience for everybody! show more show less

Upon the Deep Blue Sea
We have spent 18 summer vacations at this house, which to us has become a second home. Waking up to the sounds and view of the ocean are like none other. The house is well equipped, and we barbecue almost every night and eat dinner with the ocean view. The Sconset Beach is a perfect place to spend the day or enjoy night fall. It also has terrific star gazing. The house has comfortable and well appointed furniture. The village is quaint, convenient to the local market, walking trails and the bike path. It's an easy drive into town, and sometimes we just take the island bus which is convenient and avoids parking in town. Thanks to Karla, Thea and Steve for being such hospitable landlords. show more show less

What is special about this property?

Beautiful water views!

What is special about our property?
...........The sights, the sounds and the smells
Magnificent water views from the back yard - you don't have to go to the beach to enjoy it!
Moon rising over the ocean
Aroma of wild beach roses
Soothing rhythm of the surf
Relax in the sun to the sound of the surf and let the cool ocean breeze take you away. Leave the world behind
Peace and Contentment .... Paradise

What is special about your town?
The cottage is located in the heart of the historic whaling village of of Siasconset, aka 'Sconset, which is famous for its rose covered cottages and rambling lanes - an explorers paradise.
'Sconset has been a destination for artists for generations. Wander the lanes and alleyways and be astonished by the quaint seaside cottages and their beautiful summer gardens.
The village has a post office, liquor store, three restaurants, art gallery and a market. It even has its own lighthouse, Sankaty Light

Recommendations:
* Lovely 3 1/2 mile roundtrip walk/bike ride to historic Sankaty Lighthouse
* 1 Minute to the Seasonal Shuttle Bus stop which goes to Nantucket town via 3 different routes (Take the scenic Polpis Rd route)
