Description

Description

'Lesser Light' is a charming cottage surrounded by brush and flower gardens. It has cathedral ceilings, a fully-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, a washer/dryer, and a huge, private deck with chaises, a hammock, table and chairs and a gas grill. This 700 sq. ft. cottage comfortably sleeps up to 4 guests, with one queen bedroom and a separate sleeping area off the main living area with a full-size pullout bed (behind pocket doors for privacy). There is a full bathroom with a tub/shower, and also an outdoor shower on the deck.

The cottage can be a romantic hideaway for a couple, or a vacation destination for 2 couples or a small family. Located in Tom Nevers East, minutes from the Ocean, the bike path into town, a shuttle bus stop, and a short five minute drive into Siasconset, 'Lesser Light' is an idyllic getaway from the hectic pace of a Nantucket Summer, with easy access to all the attractions of the Island.

The cottage can be rented separately or together with our 5 bedroom 7 bath main house, 'Incandescence.' Both are set on the same 3 acre property but are privately situated over 300' away from each other, screened by thick brush, and each has its own separate driveway. A meandering stone path connects the two when they are rented by the same party or extended family.

    Sweet stay

    Private, well equipped cottage nestled in the middle of the Island - great deck/patio with outdoor shower, lounging and eating area, surrounded by deep lush green landscape. Loved it!

    Our experience was great. Owners are very responsive and their attention to detail is perfect. The cottage is a hidden gem not visible from the road, so if privacy is what you're looking for, this is your place.

    We spent a week in this charming cottage. It was very comfortable, the amenities were fantastic, and the cottage is well-situated (mid-island) for exploring all that Nantucket has to offer. It has a remote feeling and is surrounded by small gardens with a deck that is perfect for quiet relaxation and bird watching. Two TVs with satellite reception were perfect for a couple, one of whom likes to watch sports and the other movies (like us)! The owners provide a thorough list of restaurants and possible activities (such as hiking trails). We’ve stayed in many vacation rentals over the years, and this was among the best. show more show less

    We went for a family trip to have fun and relax and thats exactly what we did! We had the best time! It was a great location to explore all parts of the island. We would take our nightly walks with our dogs to the cranberry bogs which was amazing and convenient. Then we would head to another part of the island and come back and make a big dinner. Lesser light had everything we needed and more....... We will be back! Thanks for the wonderful memories!

    Leaving the hustle and bustle of home and finding our “new” home is our little secret. There is a movie called same time next year which we intend to continue as we feel it is important for what this week and what this magical place has done for us. Thank you for everything. We will see you for many years to come!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for opening up your home to our family to help us kick off our 2017 summer vacation! What a fabulous time we had. And we could not have been any luckier to have rented from such wonderful people!

    From the initial booking to the safe return of our deposit--you both made every detail of our experience so delightfully seamless!

    Your cottage is so quaint, cozy, quiet and surrounded by nature! Even our children enjoyed a peaceful nap in the hammock amongst the singing birds!

    Thank you for your wonderful island recommendations and your incredibly generous hospitality. We’re so happy to have discovered “Lesser Light” and look forward to returning in the near future!

    My boyfriend and I had a wonderful relaxing stay the the Lesser Light. Kitchen was fabulous, house was toasty and the hosts were awesome. I would gladly recommend this little place for another couple looking for a getaway!

    My husband and I brought our dogs and all of us had an amazing stay in this sweet and well designed cottage. The cottage is convenient to the Moors which is our favorite place for long hikes with the dogs. Tom Nevers Beach is also close by. We enjoyed sitting on the private deck, watching the birds come to the birdbath and feeder, cooking simple meals on the grill, watching a meteor shower, and relaxing under the large umbrella. The property is clean and well-maintained, Ron and Lauren could not have been more helpful, and I would highly recommend this place to a friend fortunate enough to be able to travel to the magical island of Nantucket. I only hope I am able to return someday. show more show less
