Nantucket August Sat-Tue

  • August 16 · 3:00 PM

"God made Martha's Vineyard, but lives in Nantucket!"

Spend a great time with a group of fun and fabulous people on this spectacular Island!

Choose from three nights or six!

We're renting a great house close to town. Only a ten minute walk away! With the bus stop right in front of our house to help you get around the Island with ease. The house is big enough with different sitting areas if you want some privacy and alone time. 

You can't stay any where in Nantucket at this price this time of year!

The house has everything you need from beach and bath towels, beach chairs, linens, cooking utensils, etc.

First come first serve gets room preference or automatically assigned to rooms. (i.e. we fill up second floor first then third floor). Please note there are stairs to all floors with bedrooms. Now filling third floor.

$575 per person(3 nights/4 days) 

This site is for the first half of the week Sat-Tue. If you prefer the second half of the week (Tue-Fri), please click here...

Rooms have two twin beds in each. You will be matched with a roommate. There is a full bath on all bedroom floors. If we do not fill all rooms, you may end up with a single room!

Please note that price includes lodging only - all other expenses are on your own (i.e. ferry transportation, meals, groceries, etc.)

  


Ferry Transportation: Steamship Authority and Hyline both leave from Hyannis and both have fast and traditional ferry service. Overnight parking is available for around $20 per day.  Cheaper parking available at the Bus Terminal about a mile away from ferries. You may use the comments section below to arrange carpools so that you can save money on gas and parking.

Some info about the week...

There are grocery stores nearby for food shopping. Most usually shop for their own breakfast items to have in the house. You can also choose to purchase lunch items for packing a lunch for the beach. Feel free to cook your own meals for dinner too if you like. Most usually go out for dinner.

Getting Around the Island - It's very easy to get around the Island
There are taxis and buses that can take you pretty much any place you want to go. We are in walking distance of town and for a dollar or two the buses will take you to the beaches on the Island. Car and scooter rentals are also available. The bus stops are very close to the house.

    Sorry I haven't responded. Been traveling so much and just got back. I'm planning a Zentangle retreat October 31 weekend. All are welcome to attend.

    Forgot to note - believe the Hotel is also close to the Beaches. Will be a bit cool in November but still nice for Walking.

    Hi Diana.
    Yes - the Hotel has a Heated Indoor Pool as well as a Fitness Center. I'm in if everyone is still interested. Let me know what everyone's schedule is like.

    September 28

  • Diana P.

    Hi Michelle and all I can also do Nov if there is a conflict with Oct 31 weekend. Sorry I was not able to reply sooner. Michelle I'm ok w being 2 miles from town if that works for folks. Does the hotel have a pool? Are folks still interested in a newport trip?

    Hi Michelle,

    The Homewood Suites rooms are Suites with a King Bed and a Sofa Bed so there is an Option for Room share. They have Full Kitchens, Free Internet, Free Hot Breakfast Buffet, Indoor Pool, 24-Hr Fitness Center, and 24-Hr Business Center. It is 2 Miles From Newport so the Main Strip can be reached either by Taxi, Carpool among ourselves if we want, or if we are feeling adventurous we can walk. The hotel also has Free Parking.

    The AAA Rate for 1 Night is $142 + $18 Tax = $160. Split between two if anyone wants it would come to $80 per person. Let me know how this sounds.

    ONE QUESTION: There is a chance that I might have a conflict with the Weekend of 10/31. If needed, would either the weekend of 11/7 or 11/14 Work for Everyone?

    Hi Everyone. I did some research into places to stay in Newport - Here is what I found. In reviewing Websites for renting Houses, it appears that most properties have Minimum Stay Requirements of at least 3 Nights - those that do not appear to be a bit too small for us (2 Bedroom Properties with Single Bed Rooms, Etc.). I also checked Hotels near the Main Strip in Newport (Bowen's Wharf) and this area appears Pricey as well.

    I talked to one of my Co-Workers who rents a house in Newport for the full Summer every year as well as to a Friend that is also planning a weekend trip to Newport. Both suggested that Middletown (the next town over from Newport) is a good option -it is close to Newport and also less Pricey. My Friend chose the Homewood Suites Property in Middletown for her group's stay. I checked this out and it looks like a great Option. The rooms are Suites (1 King Bed and 1 Sofa Bed) so there is an Option for Room Share.

    (I am running out of Space. Will continue....)

  • Diane

    that weekend works for me too! I started looking into a place, but i agree with Jacki it's not easy

    September 9

  • Diana P.

    I'm not great at this but can do some research and get back to the group. If anyone wants to as well that could button things up sooner. Yeah!

  • Katie S.

    I can do the 31st weekend. Newport could be a lot of fun too!

    1 · September 8

  • Michelle F.

    Hi Diana. My Vote would be for Newport the Weekend of 10/31 as that seems to be the best for everyone (Halloween Weekend - Fun!). For a shorter stay of 1 or 2 nights, seems Newport is a closer journey. I'm not the expert on Newport but I would be glad to look into Hotels and Rates - I can also check the VRBO Website as they likely have houses for Rental for shorter stays. Diane, Robyn, and Katie: Will the weekend of 10/31 work for all of you? Also, do we want to stay 1 night or 2?

    2 · September 8

  • Diana P.

    Oh nuts I'm at a conference Oct 17th but open Oct 31. Are we looking at a few hotel rooms for 1 night or a house for weekend or is that even done?

    September 7

    • Jacki

      Yes - it can be done. I've rented a house before in Nantucket for a weekend. It takes a lot of time to search though, but feel free to look into it. I've traveling non-stop til October 14 so won't have much time to plan til then. Am in VT right now on a Tour, but open to whatever you guys come up with

      September 8

  • Diane

    September 6

    • Michelle F.

      The weekend of Oct 17th Works For Me - the 31st could be a possibility as well. If you would like some assistance with planning, let me know - would be glad to help.

      September 7

    • Robyn

      Starting new job and will need to be on West Coast a fair amount. Unsure of travel schedule right now but would love to do either if it's possible.

    I am on the 2pm ferry...they are now parking people at the lot by the airport. Just an FYI.

    August 16

  • Michelle F.

    If anyone is interested in meeting to take the Ferry over together, let me know. I will be driving up from CT so will likely not be there early enough to take a morning Ferry. I plan to take the 2:00 Steamship Authority High Speed Ferry that will get me to the Island at 3 - in time to get to the House near the start of Check In.

    August 13

    • Katie S.

      I will be on this ferry too!

      August 16

  • Ellen C.

    Sounds great. I wish I could attend, but I'll be away, maybe next time.

    August 13

  • Diane

    Laura and myself will be going on the steamship ferry[slow one] early at 9:00. If anyone else is going then let us know so we'll meet you up above!

    August 9

    • Katie S.

      I think I am taking the 11 AM ferry, with check in not until 3PM

  • Michelle F.

    HI Jacki. I just signed up for this Trip - would like to request the Queen Room in the Basement that is Open. Thanks!

    August 9

  • Judy

    Hi Jacki, is there a working grill at the house?

    August 2

    • Jacki

      Yes there is.

      August 2

  • Jacki

    Ferry Parking: We recently found out you can park at the Hyannis Bus terminal for less than $10/day. It's about 3/4 of a mile walk to the ferry. There is closer parking for $15/day and then ferry parking $20/day. Sometimes these cheaper lots fill up, so you should get there early. I'll send more info via email along with other details (i.e. house address, etc.)

    1 · July 25

  • Katie S.

    Anybody that is going for the full week and want to carpool to the ferry?
