Dog fee varies depending on size and type, but is generally $100 per dog. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR AVAILABILITY CALENDAR.More

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...More

Pull up a chaise lounge on the large wood deck, grill the day’s catch on the gas grill, take a nap in the hammock, watch the incredible night sky just outside your door - without the lights of town interfering - and delight in the best of Nantucket! In nearby 'Sconset, there are five restaurants: a cute sandwich shop (Claudette's); the beach-side bistro at the Summer House; the upstairs bar and restaurant at the Summer House; The Sconset Cafe, which has a really ni...
