About Lisa Holstein

Our family currently lives in downtown Chicago. My husband is from the Lake Bluff, IL (suburb of Chicago) and I am originally from Iowa but made Chicago my home base after graduating from University of Iowa in December 1991, where I worked as an ICU nurse. I am currently a "stay Home Mom" of a 13 yo girl and a 9yo boy. My husband is a graduate of Lake Forest College and currently runs his own business.

Lisa Holstein purchased this house in 2003

Why Lisa Holstein chose Nantucket

The property, while originally was a ship captains home was converted into a bed and breakfast in the mid-1970's called the Stumble Inne, my husband having traveled to the east coast and worked there during his summer breaks during college wanted to make a change and run an inn. We changed the name to "la Ruche Inn" in 2003 and ran it as and inn for 3 years. Once my daughter was old enough to go to pre-school we decided to return to Chicago in 2006 and convert the inn back to a home, made structural changes and renovated the kitchen. It is now a home again that we rent out by the week and visit when we can.

What makes this house unique

The home is close to town and all Nantucket has to offer. The unique charm of the house reflects the islands charm. There is no other place like it.

Car: recommended

Our property is located close to town. Within walking distance from great restaurants and shopping. The restaurant Fifty-Six Union is a 5 minute walk away. Three bike rental shops in town: Nantucket Bike Shop, Young's Bicycle Shop and Cook's Cycle Shop is a fun way to see the island and take advantage of all the bike trails throughout the island. Great restaurants: Outdoor dining at The Galley Beach restaurant on Jetties beach (beautiful sunsets), or head to town and eat at CRU, American Seasons, Queequeg's, Pearl, Boarding House, Dune, Brant Point Grille, Town, Oran Mor and a new must try, Greydon House. Enjoy casual dining at Brother Hood of Thieves or Lobster Trap. Grab a drink after dinner and sing along with the piano player at the historic Club Car. Or head to the East end of the island to the little town of Sconset and enjoy dining at Summer House, Chanticleer or lunch on the beach at Summer House Beachside Bistro. Surfside Beach is fun and a 'drive on' beach but large waves, think surfing. Jetties beach is near town and much calmer. If you want to take a break from waves all together, especially if you have little ones, we like Sesachacha Pond (better known by locals as Quidnet Pond) a salt water pond located just off the sand dunes of Quidnet ocean side beach on the east side of the island just north of Sankaty Head.
