Guests call our air-conditioned, cheery, secluded house "a special place." That description perfectly fits our location in Nantucket Town's Old Residential Historic District. Our house faces The Old Mill, a quiet, working windmill built in 1746; it is the country's oldest, continuously operating windmill.
In the Lee is available May 1 until November 1 for up to four people for a short visit or for two people long-term. No pets, no smoking and no candle burning (a fire hazard with the breezes this house gets). To reserve this house, please call Carolyn Crowley, the owner, at (H) 508-228-9362 (Nantucket) or cell: 508-680-4534 (Nantucket) or e-mail: email@example.com.
In the Lee is only a 10-minute delightful walk to Main Street, shops, restaurants, theaters, beaches and Nantucket Harbor, and a two-minute walk to the Island-wide shuttle bus stop and bike paths. Guests can walk to Brant Point, Jetties, Children’s, Francis Street and Steps beaches. With this superb location -- the Island's best -- no car is necessary, but In the Lee has two off-street parking spaces at the end of the long, winding driveway.
This tucked-away home has a queen bed and double futon. It also features a fully stocked kitchen; dining table that seats six; tile floor; hand-hooked, hand-dyed wool rugs with Nantucket, nautical and floral themes; a brick patio with a teak table and four teak chairs ; Weber charcoal grill; outdoor shower with hot and cold water. Beyond the brick patio is a grass backyard where children can play and everyone can enjoy the chaise lounges and Adirondack chairs while sunbathing, chatting, reading and eating.
Other Amenities: In the Lee also has complimentary high-speed Internet (Wi-Fi), a washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave oven, blender, Keurig with K-cups (or 12-cup Cuisinart coffee maker), toaster, small oven, all linens, beach towels, all cooking utensils, fish poacher, lobster pot, charcoal BBQ grill, charcoal, beach chairs (they can be carried or worn on the back and have a pouch to hold what you need at the beach), books, HDTV 32-inch flat screen TV (unfortunately not seen in photos because they must be updated), VCR, DVD player, sound system, books (including cookbooks and novels), children's toys, bicycle rack, and fresh flowers.
Caretaker: The homeowner/caretaker lives nearby. She therefore is able to respond quickly to tenants' needs, ensuring their comfort and enjoyment. Upon guests' arrivals, she gives tenants literature, Island maps and the Nantucket Restaurant guide. For a small fee, she will shop for groceries and supplies to stock the refrigerator before tenants arrive. As tired as guests are when they arrive at In the Lee, with a well-stocked refrigerator, they don't have to leave the house immediately to buy food.
Rental periods: In the Lee is available May to November. Rates range from $2,700/week to $3,000/week, depending on the month and week. No pets, no smoking and no candle burning (fire hazard). Minimum stays are four nights.
Rentals are Saturday to Saturday. Maximum number of guests is four. Check-in is at 3 p.m.; checkout is at or before 10 a.m. Guests pay $500 refundable security deposit and $140 cleaning fee; homeowner reimburses the tenant if the cleaning amounts to less than $140 .
Please do not inquire about our accepting your dogs. We are pet lovers--we own a well-trained, obedient and friendly Doberman pinscher, a hilarious, playful dog--but we do not accept dogs for many, many reasons. We've tried having guests' dogs in the house and each time it's been a no-win situation for our tenants and us.
Please come enjoy our beautiful, historic Island and this comfortable, secluded, quiet house.
