I have been renting on Nantucket since the late seventies. I wanted to buy my own little cottage at some point. When I saw the Sweet Briar for sale I knew that the Sweet Briar was the right one for me. I wanted to share my home with guests so they, too, may enjoy an affortable vacation on Nantucket.

Rosemary Campobasso purchased this cottage in 1998

I was enchanted by the Sweet Briar and felt that it was time to buy my own cottage on Nantucket.

It is only one mile and a half from downtown Nantucket and secluded enough in a nice courtyard and views of nature, for privacy. The best of both worlds!
