9. Nantucket Dream

Gather your friends and family for a weeklong adventure on Nantucket Island. Nantucket Island offers the best that a summer stay in the Northeast has to offer. Generously donated for a second time by owners, Mary and Jeremy Bloomer, this historic residence is over 200 years old. The Captain of the Essex, which was made famous by Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick”, originally owned this special property.
The house is just two blocks from the center of town. From this charming, antique setting, you can walk or bike everywhere on the island. The house covers 5,500 square feet with six bedrooms and six baths. The home is ship shape from stem to stern as it has recently been lovingly renovated. The house comes generously stocked with all you or your guest would need for seaside fun. There are surfboards for hanging ten, skim boards, boogie boards, beach chairs, towels and sand toys for those sand castles the kids (and grownups) love to build.

Other fabulous features include a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, private garden with blooming flowers and an outdoor dining area with a BBQ. There is even an outdoor shower for all those sandy feet and sun-soaked bodies.

This Nantucket Island house is a treasure to look at, but is even better to live in for a
week to remember. The scale and gracious amenities make this house the perfect setting for a group of friends or families on holiday together. Comfortable, welcoming and historic, this Nantucket charmer will help you and your loved ones make memories that will last for a lifetime.

Available until June 14th, 2014.
Memorial Day Weekend is excluded.
