Walk to Town from Beautiful Cottage w/ Guest House & A/C!

Nantucket, Massachusetts

We have completely renovated our family's Nantucket Cottage and adjacent Guest House in Nantucket's flag-spangled Historic District. The property is a short walk to town, the harbor, and Children's Beach.
No car needed! But if you would like to bring your car, we have parking for one car.
The property contains both a main house and a separate guest house, making it a perfect get-away for couples traveling together or for families traveling with friends, grandparents or a nanny.

The main house features an open floor plan with cathedral ceilings, large beams and a 1940s red-brick-fireplace. Surrounded by large windows, the dining room is bright and airy -- a perfect spot to have breakfast and make plans for a day of sightseeing, sailing, and cycling around the island.

We have installed beautiful white custom Bali 2" Cordless Pleated Shades with Light Diffusing Privacy Liners on ALL windows in the main house.

The kitchen has custom cabinets, Corian countertops, stainless steel appliances, and an eat-in breakfast bar. Together with the (new 2019) 5-Burner grill on the patio, the kitchen provides you with everything you need to cook and serve the perfect backyard family BBQ. The dining table seats 6. The living room boasts a comfortable sofa and a 48" SMART TV. You will also find a front-load washer and dryer.

The master bedroom has a new Queen mattress and box spring (Fall 2017) with en suite bathroom and 32" SMART TV; the second bedroom has a QUEEN bed with built -in 6 drawer dresser. All told, the main house sleeps four.

The Guest House is immediately adjacent to the main house. It sleeps two and has been completely refurbished. It has a QUEEN bed, a 40" SMART TV, a private bathroom and a kitchenette. Custom Bali 2" pleated shades on all windows. A small bluestone patio with a seating area for two is located directly behind the guest house .

The large backyard patio is surrounded by tall hedges and gorgeous shade trees. In 2019, we added a new 5-Burner BBQ, a new patio dining table with seating for 6, and a new 4-piece seating area.

Nantucket is beautiful in the summer and the days are warm. To keep you cool, we've installed a Mini-Split Air Conditioning system in both the main house and guest house. The entire property is well-appointed with towels, bed linens, kitchen ware, utensils, glasses, dishes, and everything else you would need to feel at home on the island. Our property manager lives just a mile away, so if you need anything he can be there in a matter of minutes. This house is great for families, couples, artists, writers, boaters, beach-lovers, and exhausted city-dwellers looking to relax.

Come join us for a long weekend and stay as long as you like.

    Just Perfect!

    We couldn’t have asked for a better home in which to spend our Nantucket vacation! The house was the perfect size for our family (2 adults, a 4 year old and a 1 year old) and perfectly located. We easily walked to and from town and bikes to Madaket and Cisco bike trails. And although it’s on a rather busy street, you don’t even notice the traffic from inside the house or the beautiful backyard. The house is well stocked with everything you could need. Extra touches by Michele (thoughtful gift bags and help coordinating baby rental items) were especially appreciated.The guest house is very cute too. We look forward to staying here again!

    This property is exactly as advertised and exceeded our expectations in every category. 17 Quaker easily accommodated our family of five adults, including ourselves, 90 y/o grandmother and two young adults. The one bedroom cottage was the perfect private space for our daughter and boyfriend. The house is beautifully furnished and exceptionally clean and organized. Bed linens and bath towels are better than at most high end hotels. Bedrooms are spacious, have plenty of storage space and beds are very comfortable. Temperature for each bedroom is individually controlled which was great since we all have different needs. We stopped at the Shop n Go that Michelle recommended for a few items to complete our Thanksgiving meal and for supplies to make breakfast a couple of times. It is literally within minutes of the cottage. The kitchen was perfect for our needs and included all the essentials. Michele is highly professional and maintains this property at a high standard and with an abundance of heart. We appreciated her attention to detail and her responsiveness to our inquiries. We highly recommend this property.

    Amazing home with wonderful details!

The house was clean and well decorated and michele was the most kind and considerate owner. She was so accommodating to us when our ferry was delayed.

    Staying at the Nantucket Cottage on Quaker Road was just wonderful. We fell in love with Nantucket and with this adorable cottage. Three couples stayed in this precious property, we did not need for one thing, from the fully stocked kitchen to the awesome patio where we grilled out. Such a memorable visit, we will certainly return and would love to stay here. The owner, Michele, communicated everything we needed to know and even sent a great packet with information about restaurants, tours, & maps. The location was a short walk from the town/wharf, we walked most everywhere we went. Thank you so much for a truly delightful experience!

    This was a lovely stay from start to finish. One of the best owners I've ever worked with. House was adorable and immaculate. Also, extremely well appointed. The gift bag was one of the nicest touches I've seen in a property rental. Slight issue of the house being located on somewhat of a busy street, but the bedrooms are set back, so quiet at night.

    Perfect little getaway - We'll be back!

    Absolutely loved our stay in Michele's cottage. It was the perfect distance from the hustle and bustle of town and very easy to drive out to 3 beaches during our 3-day stay! Steps, Madaket & Surfside. Only a 10 minute walk from town, it felt very central to everything. Beautiful Welcome bag gift was above and beyond our expectations! Beds were VERY comfortable with excellent linens. Bathroom toiletries (yay Neutrogena wipes!) came in very handy throughout the weekend and really added to our warm welcome. The main house + cottage were perfect for 3 couples total. One regret is not taking advantage of the very inviting backyard patio!

    Absolutely THE best rental we have had in over 25 years. This was our 3rd year and we once again enjoyed this lovely island home. Everything is immaculate and house is very well equipped with everything you need for a great vacation. Location is ideal within walking distance town. Lovely back yard for grilling. Both the owner and agent handling the rental are extremely easy to work with and are very welcoming and accommodating if you have questions or concerns. Truly a delightful home to spend a week or more on this special island.

    Michele was great. Always quick to respond and easy to communicate with. The amount of care and dedication put into the thorough property description on this site matches the care and dedication put into the property. Ideal location for walks to town and bike rides to Cisco and Madaket. The setup was an ideal “together but separate” arrangement for our family of 4 traveling with grandparents.

    We had a wonderful week on Nantucket at 17 Quaker. The house was spotless and the decor was perfect. The new patio furniture was comfortable and we enjoyed relaxing outside. It is about a half-mile to the center of town and the walk passes spectacular homes and gardens. We grilled out on the new grill one night and it was great. For those looking to cook at home more than we did you should know there is not a full size oven. No an issue for us as we enjoyed walking to town to try the many restaurants. Communication was great, check-in easy, and again- the house was extremely clean and inviting. Air conditioning was a plus as it was unseasonably warm last week. Thanks again!

    Everything about this property was as advertised. It’s super clean, well appointed, and close to town. We were traveling with another couple and their adult daughter, so the layout was ideal. My husband and I had more than enough space in the guest cottage and our friends and their daughter used the main house. It’s an easy walk to town but far enough removed to be quiet at night. Exactly what we needed for a 3 night stay on the island.

The home and its furnishings are beautiful, and housed our group of six very comfortably.

    Our stay at 17 Quaker Road was amazing!! We stayed there while attending a family wedding for 3 days. My husband and I stayed in the smaller cottage while our two adult daughters and their significant others, happily stayed in the larger house. Both the larger, 2 bedroom house, and the smaller, one bedroom cottage, were gorgeous!! The décor, linens, bathrooms, kitchens and common areas had everything you could possibly need. The kitchens were complete with beautiful dishes, glasses, utensils, pans, etc., everything you could imagine. The bathrooms were sparkling with all the accoutrements at your fingertips! The windows were spotless with lovely shades. We were in walking distance of the center, which we did, but due to a rainy weekend, we used both taxi services and ubers which were always available and were large enough to accommodate the 6 of us. We will undoubtedly stay at these houses, again. Michelle, the owner, was wonderful to work with and was always available to talk with. Although we didn't need him for any problems, the property manager was easy to contact when I called about a question. These houses were a great place for our family and the memories we made there will be forever, happy ones. A real gem!!!!

    Truly enjoyed our stay at the Quaker house. It was a perfect house for a weekend stay in Nantucket for a wedding. Amenities and then some were provided, and Michele was responsive to any question or request we had. She even left us a very thoughtful welcome gift. Check in and out are very easy and there is a binder full of information with recommendations, sights, shops, etc. available for review. The house is about a 15 minute walk to town or an $8 Uber ride. The only discomfort is the bathroom sinks are a bit small, but nothing you can't deal with. I recommend this house for families or couples needing a clean, easy place to stay.

    We stayed in Michele’s beautiful cottage on Sept 3-5 with some dear friends who were first time visitors to Nantucket. The communication with Michele was prompt and efficient - she is great! Check in and check out were a breeze. When we got to the cottage we were surprised by a great welcome gift from Michele - an LLBean tote and a beautiful blanket - both embroidered with “ACK”. The cottage is better than the photos and spotless with every amenity you need for a visit to Nantucket - great linens, full kitchen amenities and a great grill and dining area in the back patio. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit in Nantucket and Michele’s cottage is beautiful and a pleasant 10-15 minutes walk to town center. We are looking forward to our next visit to Nantucket and will stay at Michele’s cottage again! 5 stars!!! PS - we left behind a Bluetooth speaker and Michele was kind enough to retrieve and send to us postage paid. Truly a great host!!! Thank you Michele!

The owner is so attentive and always makes small improvements to the home while maintaining consistency in the amenities that we’ve grown to look forward to. We bring our car but the house is walking distance to everything in town but out of the center of it all too. It’s truly a perfect home for our family’s Nantucket vacation!

    First trip to Nantucket for myself and our kids (wife vacationed there as a child, herself) and couldn't have picked a better spot for our inaugural visit. Would not recommend any more than six people (there were 5 of us, two adults and three kids, and a mother- and brother-in-law for a few nights which meant couch or blow-up mattress for one person). Cozy, well-appointed house and owner was extremely nice. Welcome gift awaited us as well as very complete "renter's manual" regarding everything about the house as well as a lot of tips about Nantucket itself. Came complete with beach chairs, cooler, towels and linens, appliances, card and board games, etc. Really enjoyed family dinners, especially cooking out and eating on the back porch. Super convenient to town (walked there, back and forth, often) and both ferry terminals. Pretty convenient to bike paths for access to Cisco and Surfside. Bike rides to Sconset and Steps/Jetties took a little more effort (re: bike path access to Sconset was further away and rode on roads to Steps/Jetties) but not bad at all. The ONLY slight negative (but not terrible) was its location at intersection of Quaker and Milk is pretty busy so we'd walk our bikes a block or two on the sidewalks (to stay out of traffic) with our kids to access Cisco bike path or to ride downtown, e.g. Still the pros of the house outweigh this con. Would definitely rent again subject to whether or not we have a dog with us next time (no pets allowed). All-in-all, a great rental!

    Perfect in every way!!!

    From the initial interaction with the owner Michele to our final day in the house, the experience was top-notch. Michele made sure our visit to Nantucket was amazing! She gave us great recommendations and checked in on a regular basis to ensure we were enjoying our stay. Michele also gave us a gift upon arrival - a bag and blanket with ACK on it (Nantucket's airport code) and a lovely bottle of Rose. We have been renting houses for a longtime all over the US and no one has ever done this. Very classy! The house itself is fantastic. It is great for families. The main house is very comfortable and has everything you need. The guest house is adorable and has a separate kitchen which was very convenient. The back patio is huge and very private. There is also plenty of space for kids to play in the yard. The house is also in a great location - we can easily walk to town and had access several beaches. The beaches Michele recommended were great. We loved 40th pole but you need a 4WD vehicle. When on Nantucket again, we will definitely stay at 17 Quaker!

    Michele, the owner is very professional and quick to respond to booking questions and any requests we had during the booking process! The renovation of a small cottage and garage into the beautiful house and cottage was well planned and executed into amazing little accommodations! We were Two couples and a teen daughter and the space worked out really well. Both houses were stocked with everything you could think of, although all appliances are small and there is not an oven other than a large microwave with convection abilities. We cooked meat on the grill outside! She has beach chairs and towels all in exellent shape and everything has its place. The bedrooms in main house have plenty of drawer space but the cottage does not. So plan for a kid or someone with a small amount of clothing to stay in that location. The walk to town is literally 5-8 minutes and through the charming upper Main Street neighborhoods! The Cisco bike trail is one block away! You wouldn’t need a car if staying at this location, if you do bring one make sure it’s small, the parking spot is tiny. The yard is amazingly large and a great spot for outdoor eating! The landscape is pristine and well thought out for privacy. The cottage which is where I stayed is a little loud as the sleeping area is closer to the road than the main house bedrooms and Quaker Road from 7 am - 7 pm is very busy. The property manager Mike and his Wife are wonderful, he greeted us as we arrived and showed us how everything works and were quick to respond to any requests we had! Michele the owner checked in 2-3 times to make sure we were happy and already refunded our damage deposit! I wish all owners were this professional! Michele has amazing taste and it shows in her beautiful furnishings and personal touches. It’s better in person than the photos!

    17 Quaker was the perfect home away from home on our recent visit to Nantucket! Our group of 7, four adults and three children, wanted for nothing during our stay! Michelle was the perfect hostess. I’ve never been to a rental before that truly had everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The house was super clean, and it was easy walking distance to charming Nantucket town. The house is a small cottage, but our group had plenty of room, and the owner utilizes every inch of space with such efficiency! She has literally thought of everything!!!! The only thing that might have been of use to me personally with my three small children was some sort of small vacuum or dust buster (I found myself sweeping floors several times each day), but it’s not a necessity...I’m just a crazy neat freak! Overall, I would book this house again in a heartbeat! I’m ready to book my reservation for next year already! Thank you, Michelle and Mike, for a lovely and memorable stay.

    Submitted May 5, 2018

    My family and I stayed at this great house for Nantucket's famous "Daffodil Weekend." We loved it. It was clean and comfortable and beautiful. My wife and I stayed in the studio (complete with bathroom and kitchen), while our adult children took the two bedrooms in the main house. It couldn't have worked out better. The property is located on Quaker Street, within the Nantucket Historic District, so it is a short 10 minute walk to the middle of town. The owner gave us great recommendations for restaurants and things to see and do. We can't wait to come back.

    Great home and even better location

    The cottage had everything we needed and was in an excellent location. It was recently renovated and was in perfect condition and well appointed. The owner was very responsive to questions and was a gracious host of this beautiful cottage. We will be back!

    Main house was well equipped and comfortable but on a main street. Suggesting that the accommodations are suitable for 6 adults is inaccurate. The guest house bed is very small and short. My husband and I are not tall/big people and the bed was very small for us. Another problem was the road noise and the guest house bathroom. The sink in the bathroom was the size of a mixing bowl and the bathroom door did not close properly (it's a sliding barn door) which left a large gap and no privacy. We found ourselves brushing our teeth and washing our faces in the kitchen sink. The contacts for maintenance was very attentive and helpful. There was a smoke detector that needed a new battery and they were there within 1/2 hour. All in all this house is good for a weekend get away for a family with children.

    We loved it all! The property was clean, well kept and so comfortable. All the linens were provided and were high quality. The kitchen contained all the items we expected and more! Michele, the owner, was delightful to work with, as well as Mike, the property manager. We didn't need Mike while we were there, which speaks highly of what a fantastic cottage they have. We didn't have a car while we were there, and we didn't miss it. We were able to walk to downtown Nantucket. We were able to get the bus to get to other parts of the island. And the taxis were plentiful and easily accessible. The walk downtown was amazing. We marveled at the historic neighborhoods all around the location of the cottage. We had a marvelous week. We would definitely come back and stay here again. We recommend this cottage highly to everyone.

    ACK gem walking distance from town!

    We have nothing but great things to say about this property. It's beautifully decorated, well maintained, impeccably clean and just a short 10 minute walk from town. Our family of 3 stayed there with two other couples and we were very comfortable (with one couple enjoying the gorgeous guest house). Hurricane Jose was impacting the island during our stay, so we unfortunately weren't able to enjoy the backyard space and outdoor furniture but we hope to during a future stay - it all looked so lovely! The owner is a true joy to work with - one of the nicest people we've ever rented from - super responsive and very understanding as we struggled to get to the island with cancelled ferries, etc. We would recommend this property to anyone and everyone (but are a little afraid to as we kinda want to keep it our little secret! ; ) )

    Another perfect stay!

    This is our second year at this house and it was just as wonderful as last year! The house is decorated like a hotel with every amenity you will need while on the island. The guest house is perfect for extended family. The owner takes good care of the home and cares about the details. Everything was exactly the same as last year and was well maintained and improvements were also made (additional mirrors, laundry hampers and new bed linens). All of the little details are cared for. Loved our stay once again and already looking forward to 2018!!

    This house looks just like the pictures but even more spacious than I imagined! The rooms are a perfectly sized and there's even an extra bunk in one of the rooms! We were able to fit 6 people comfortably for different activities (eating, lounging, etc). Also, the house is a quick 10 minute walk from downtown which is perfect. Definitely going to go back :)

    Great location; busy street but everyone very courteous letting you out of driveway. Extremely clean; lovely decor. Yard spacious and well equipped with patio set and grill. Kitchen well stocked with everything you need. Linens fresh and ample! Loved the guest house or "the annex" as we called it. Overall a wonderful week on our favorite island. We have been renting for 20+ years and this is at the top of our list!! Would highly recommend this property!!

    The house was perfect for our needs! Very clean, nicely decorated, updated and a very cute backyard perfect for grilling out. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking! The front yard with hydrangeas, window boxes and flags is also just adorable. We loved the close proximity and walkability to town. It was a perfect home for our family of 4 and Grandma & Grandpa had a very comfortable stay in the guest cottage. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend 17 Quaker!

    Where to begin? This property is the perfect distance to town (a very easy 12 minute walk). It's adorable- complete with the most stunning hydrangeas, charming window boxes and patriotic flags. Our family of four was very comfortable, but up to six would also be pleased. It is very well maintained and impeccably clean. The towels were new. We appreciated the beach chairs and coolers for trips to Cisco and Surfside (10 min drives). Our family has been renting on the island for 10 years and I would easily put this home at the top of our list. To top it off, the owner, real estate contact and caretaker were all awesome people to interact with. You won't be sorry to book (but maybe we will be if its not available now!)....

    Loved our Holiday Cottage!

    We had such a great time at the cottage, which was bigger than we realized because of the guest house. The owner was super helpful with recommendations and more than accommodating when our travel logistics hit a wrinkle. Would definitely recommend it!

    This property is spectacular and immaculately clean. The design and furnishing are incredibly thoughtful and give the home a warm feel. The outdoor space was clutch -- perfect set up for our group of 6 adults. Location: 10 minute walk into town, 10 minute drive to the beach, 7 minute drive to the brewery! -- doesn't get much better than that!! I would absolutely welcome the opportunity to stay at this home again ASAP!

    My family stayed at 17 Quaker last summer and have nothing but nice things to say about the home. We have rented on the island for several years but this was our first time at this house and we will be return renters without a doubt! The things we like: Home overall: the photos are consistent with the house exactly. Kitchen is clean and bright, there is plenty of space to move around throughout the entire house. It is well decorated and warm but clean like a hotel. Location: right on the edge of town. Walking distance to everything. We walked into town several times a day and enjoyed the scenic route down Main St. The house is also great for families with a car. There is room for one car and it's perfect location-wise to zip around town. You don't need to deal with the traffic in the center of town. Amenities: the house was stocked with all of the cooking appliances we needed to have dinner at home or a picnic at the beach. Air conditioning units in every room. Lots of towels! New appliances. Yard: many houses in Town don't have a yard but there is ample outdoor space! Flat patio in the back with table and chairs as well as a bistro dining table behind the guest cottage. Guest house: we loved the guest house! My mother in law came with us and loved having her own space. The guest house has just enough room for a couple to stay and have privacy but be close enough to pop over to the main house for dinner or a morning coffee. It was the perfect set up for our family! Finally, for any repeat renters on the island, as you know many summer homes tend to have your average flies and bugs crawling around in the warmer months. We stayed here in July and for those that don't care for critters in their kitchen or living room, I can attest that the house is definitely bug free :-) Clearly, we enjoyed our stay at 17 Quaker. The house checks every box for a family or two couples looking for a place to stay while on the island. Looking forward to our next visit!

    Wow!! This place is beautiful and very homey and comfortable at the same time.The owners thought of everything for a comfortable stay. Fun games, beach chairs, great cooking kitchens in main house and guest house. We cooked an amazing lobster dinner using the grill outside and purchased live lobsters from town. The location is very convenient with an easy walk to downtown. The guest guide book is a big plus, with lots of local info to help us decide on food, activities, etc. We rented a Jeep to drive to the beach to great point and highly recommend it, so fun! Overall this was one of our best family vacations ever!! We highly recommend this beautiful property!

    Our family visited Nantucket for an extended Columbus Day weekend. We could not have picked a more perfect house to rent. The house is located close to town, it was very clean, and we loved the decor. Everyone commented on how nice the house was and we all felt like it was a home away from home. We enjoyed the back yard for reading and cocktails and our boys played soccer on the side yard. My brother-in-law stayed in the studio adjacent to the house and it was perfect for him to have quiet and work time when needed. We would stay here again!

    We stayed at this wonderful rental in Nantucket town for the past week. The house was nicely decorated, clean and very well appointed. The location was excellent, just a short walk to town. Our 3 year old son cried as we were leaving the house because he enjoyed our stay so much. It is on a main road but the backyard provides for a nice quiet retreat. We would definitely return in the future.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at 17 Quaker. The property was recently ronovated and was welll appointed. Central air was a nice treat. Property was close enough to town that we could walk and avoid having to park downtown at night. The adjacent cottage allowed for a vistor to come down during our stay. The only knock on the propery is its location at a busy intersection. Not a problem for me, but if you are looking to get away from it all - this is not the property for you.
