Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Massachusetts - Belle's Gift

4 BR 2 Bath Main House + Cottage 2 BR 2 bath - Sleeps 12-14 Total.

Privacy and Acreage surround this custom built Nantucket home, situated in Quidnet on Three Acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with the feel of horse and hunt country; adjacent to Squam Farm, a 700 acre nature preserve with forest and walking trails. The property also borders conservation land. A 5 minute walk takes you to the Windswept Cranberry Bogs with walking trails which take you around Stump Pond or to Conservation land in The Middle Moors. Excellent area to take your dog on a long hike. A separate guest cottage with with eat-in kitchen, living room, bedroom, sleeping berth w/double bed, and two baths provides a second private dwelling with its own yard. Ideal for guests or family members who enjoy a little extra privacy. Quidnet beach is less than a mile's walk or a five minute bike ride. Wide plank, random width pine floors and cherry paneling in the dining room and living room add to the warmth of this cozy home. There is a master bedroom with queen size bed on the first floor along with a guest bedroom containing two extra long twins. A master bedroom with king size bed and sitting area is on the second floor along with a bedroom with two twin beds.

It is important to book ferry early. Mid to late July and all of August Saturday and Sunday spaces usually are sold out by end of February or sooner.

Wonderful Stay in Nantucket

  • 5 of 5

Our family - including 4 adults and 2 dogs had a wonderful vacation in Nantucket made even better by staying at this property. The house is roomy, clean and beautifully furnished. Bob, the owner, was very quick to respond to our initial and all later inquiries. He even checked with us several times during our stay to ensure all was well. The kitchen was a pleasure to work in as well as the most well equipped of any properties that we have ever stayed at in the past. There was an abundance of high quality linens and the bedrooms were equipped with nice closet and drawer space and very comfortable beds. The grounds are beautiful and our dogs particularly enjoyed the very large back yard. One of our most special memories is sitting on the second floor deck at night and seeing the "Milky Way" for the first time ever! This property is located a few miles from the main village area of Nantucket and we loved that it was so very peaceful at night. Quidnet Beach and biking/walking trails are a very short distance from this property. We highly recommend this property and hope to return to "Belle's Gift" in the future!

Awesome house - Comfortable and Private

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time renting this house and we loved it the first time and the second time was even better, if that is possible. The house is comfortable, kitchen well equipped and all linens are top notch. We love the family room, dining room and outdoor porch for groups to be together. Our favorite part of the house is the privacy, after spending the day at the beach or downtown shopping with the crowds, you do come back to your little oasis and think you are the only ones on the island. The owner a Bob, is great. Checks in to make sure all is good and will do whatever needed to make sure your stay is enjoyable. We hope to be back real soon.

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Love, love, love this home. And it is a home! It isn't a sparely furnished rental -- it is a home that becomes yours. The cozy but rather large living room is filled with comfy sofas and chairs, which allowed our extended family to gather and play games. We had wonderful dinners around the dining room table and lunch out on the back porch. With four adults staying in the cottage and six adults and a teenager staying in the main house, we expected to feel crowded. However, we all had more than enough space and wished a few more of our family could have joined us because there was more sleeping space.

Everything from our comfortable beds, soft towels and well-stocked kitchen (including cookbooks, many bowls and pots, full spice cabinet, and coffee press) made this a perfect place for our 25th Anniversary celebration.

For part of the week we hired a chef from the island, which was a wonderful treat. We rented bikes and rode to the local brewery. Many of our guest took a five-mile bike ride to get bagels for breakfast. The island is filled with great bike paths. Riding to the beach was on a barely traveled road to a very nice beach and pond that wasn't crowded and very family oriented.

I want to go back to visit the museums to learn more about the history of the island. There are bike paths I missed and kayaking in the harbor would be great.

But back at the house, one can just relax on the hammock in the expansive yard, play a game of Frisbee, or my favorite, sitting on the upper porch reading a good book by one of the Nantucket authors.

The property is beautiful - house is great

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Belle's Gift for our week in Nantucket. The property is beautiful. It is in a nice, quiet area... but still an easy trip into town. The house (and guest house) were great for a larger group. We enjoyed the grill, outdoor patio, and large table for several nice family dinners. The owner was very easy to contact and proactive in making sure everything met our expectations. I look forward for an opportunity to get back to stay here again in the future.

Storybook Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering our second stay at Belle’s Gift, we immediately felt welcomed, warm and at ease. Not only is the home in impeccable condition, spotless and cared for, it is also luxuriously appointed. The fully-equipped, well-stocked kitchen (new, high-end stainless steel appliances including an incredible induction oven) allowed for enjoyable culinary experiences whether entertaining guests or making simple meals. As a bonus, we loved the addition of the brand new teak outside dining table and made great use of the Weber grill.

The beds are decadent, outfitted in the nicest, high quality linens. Many hours were spent in front of the wood-burning fireplace in the cozy den lined with shelves containing a plethora collection of books.

Weather permitting, the beautiful outdoors offered amazing views from the vast rolling lawn – a front-row seat to the unbelievable Nantucket sunsets. A favorite activity for us (and just two minutes away) was to spot seals at Quidnet Beach, walk around Sesachacha Pond, or view Nantucket town from Pocomo. The layout of the house and property are perfect for both large groups or couples. The house will offer anyone a quiet, private escape into cozy luxury that’s only minutes from town. Bob and Virginia couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. We are already anticipating our third stay.

Wonderful Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We found the Main and Guest houses to be perfect for our family gathering on Nantucket. Plenty of comfortable sleeping arrangements, great supplies of linens, towels, beach chairs, and bikes. Especially the décor, kitchen, patio, grounds, and outdoor shower all exceeded our expectations. For a large group, this is by far one of the best rental properties that we have experienced on the Cape and Islands. We hope to rent here many times in the future.
