Quaint, Quiet and very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Teri's home while we were on Nantucket for a wedding. It was a beautiful and charming property that was tucked away in a great part of town. It was only a short walk from downtown Nantucket and very easy to locate. We had everything we needed and the process of booking was extremely easy. Overall we had a fantastic stay and I would absolutely recommend staying at this beautiful cottage.

My friends and I stayed on this property in the Gaol and Boathouse in June and we loved it! There was plenty of space for our large group (10 girls) and only a 10 minute walk downtown. Teri was extremely kind and helpful. I would recommend this property!

Beautiful property a short walk from town - excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family went in mid September to celebrate my wife's birthday - we had ten people split across the cottage and boat house. Everyone was very pleased with the beautiful accommodations. Property was very clean with well appointed kitchen.

The fire pit with lanai and outdoor couches was an awesome way to end the evening!

Teri was quite responsive to our minor questions and needs, and we look forward to returning soon! Would highly recommend!

I had the great pleasure in staying at Kings Cottage and Boat House with my wife and 2 grown up kids for 5 nights over the Labour Day holiday. What a gorgeous, comfortable and blissful base for our Nantucket experience.

The 2 cottages have just been renovated to a very high standard and have everything you might need for a relaxing vacation. Great kitchen, brilliant living space [including a wonderful outside sitting area with open fireplace and barbecue], beautifully furnished bedrooms, numerous flat screen TVs and high speed internet.

The location was perfect, peaceful and quiet, and just a leisurely 10min walk to the centre of town, with it's incredible selection of boutiques, bars and restaurants.

Nantucket is without doubt one of the most beautiful places on earth and we could not have asked for a more idyllic base for our brief adventure.

We all agreed that we could happily move in and stay forever.
