Description

Location, location! Child and Dog Friendly. Sleeps 8 comfortably.

Tucked away on a private acre in Wauwinet. Hidden Treasure cottage is perfectly situated around the corner from the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge, affording our guests direct access to miles of pristine, unspoiled shoreline waiting to be explored and enjoyed. You are sure to find your own stretch of beach that is perfect for your family.

An incomparable spot on the Island. From your front door, take a walk to the harbor OR the ocean OR to the Wauwinet Inn (drinks, dinner, tennis, spa...).

Come experience Nantucket as it is meant to be: simple, natural, unpretentious, and beautiful! Kick back, relax, and get ready to soak in 'Old Nantucket.'

To take full advantage of this idyllic location, be sure to bring your four-wheel drive (or rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle on the island) so you can explore the most breathtaking place on Nantucket -- the awe-inspiring Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge.

Cottage is well-suited for one or two families.
* Two large bedrooms downstairs
* Large sleeping loft upstairs with two double beds and two twin beds
* Large, fully applianced, bright, cheery, clean and functional kitchen and lovely dining/family room
* Deck with new gas grill and new seating/eating area
* 1.5 baths (plus outdoor shower)
* Large, private yard

Hidden Treasure is equipped with new linens, beds, furniture, grills (one for deck, one for beach) some new appliances, the list goes on! Our goal is to have very happy guests (as were our guests our first season) who are comfortable and want to return year after year.

A few ideas for your stay at this magical spot:

* Great Point: Grab an over-sand permit and head out to Great Point. Be sure to bring food for a long beach day. Enjoy a day with the seals, touring the lighthouse, fishing, swimming, sunbathing, exploring.

* The Bluff: A perfect isolated paradise at sunset. Dinner and cocktails at sunset.
At low tide you can soak up family fun. Find conch shells, horseshoe crabs, and watch the kids spend hours playing. Your children can 'claim' a new island as the tide recedes and the sand bars emerge.

* Walking: Enjoy a simple walk or jog along tranquil Squam Road or the private, quiet harbor and ocean beaches.

* Biking: Pedal along Squam Road to Sesachacha Pond or bike to Siasconset for ice cream and a stroll. Or use the Island bike paths to explore more of the Island.

* Swimming and sunbathing: Walk to the ocean or harbor for a dip, or drive down the beaches of the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge to search for your own perfect, private spot.

* Tennis: A short walk to the court at the Wauwinet Inn.

* Spa: Short walk (Wauwinet Inn).

* Cocktails at sunset over the harbor: Short walk (Wauwinet Inn).

* Dining: A short walk to the internationally acclaimed restaurant, Topper's at the Wauwinet Inn, featuring the distinct, natural flavors of seasonal foods. Topper's award-winning wine cellar is a long-time recipient of the coveted Wine Spectator's Grand Award.

* Games: Play wiffle ball, soccer, croquet, Frisbee etc. in your large, private yard.

* Outdoor shower: Tradition demands you end the day with an outdoor shower -- nothing like it!

Child and Dog Friendly. Sleeps 8 comfortably with one king, two queen, one double, two single beds.

Hidden Treasure and Wauwinet will forever fill our hearts with memories of family love and family fun. Our grandfather first fell in love with Nantucket while spending summers here during his college years. Working at the Wauwinet, Grampy became close to the Backus family (long-time proprietors of Wauwinet Inn). Allen Backus became Grampy's closest friend. Our Dad, Al Pratt, was named after his 'Uncle' Allen (Backus). On land from the Backus family, Grampy built his first cottage in Wauwinet while our Dad and Aunts were children -- this cottage, next door to Hidden Treasure, is now summered in by our Aunt and Uncle. In 1973, our father and grandfather built Hidden Treasure together. My sister and I fondly remember this summer, and the many Island visits - most recently with our own children - that have followed. Since we can remember, my sister and I (and now our children) have been blessed with summer vacations in a cottage filled with love and laughter -- built by our Dad with his Dad. We hope you and your family will get lost in family fun and feel some of the magic we have been so fortunate to have experienced in our Nantucket summers. We love the tranquility of the secluded east side of the the island, the natural beauty of Wauwniet, the privacy of the cottage, the unspoiled and often empty shoreline, the evening sea breeze and the meteors blazing across an expansive nighttime sky. Enjoy!
