Nantucket Vacation Home Rentals

Located off the coast of Massachusetts, Nantucket Island is a peaceful haven where vacationers can escape to a world of interesting attractions, entertaining festivals, and beautiful beaches. For a relaxing, getaway vacation away from it all or an exciting excursion around this jewel in the water, stay in an ideally situated Nantucket vacation rental and let the flow of the island guide you on your adventures.

History buffs will certainly appreciate a Nantucket Town vacation rental and its proximity to the numerous buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A day of exploring the town is never complete, however, without a stop by the Nantucket Whaling Museum, which houses paintings, portraits, whaling memorabilia and scrimshaw that pay tribute to the prosperous whaling industry and inspired Herman Melville's novel Moby Dick.

Nantucket Town is also well-regarded for its amazing festivals and one that guests of Nantucket vacation rentals should certainly check out is the Nantucket Wine Festival. Typically held in May, the Grand Tasting cannot be missed, while the food and wine seminars are informative for those just becoming wine connoisseurs. Other festivals to consider are the Nantucket Arts Festival in October and the Nantucket Film Festival in June.

Guests of Madaket vacation rentals can enjoy a scenic and invigorating bike ride along the six-mile Madaket Bike Path that makes it way into Nantucket Town. Spend the morning browsing antiques or cruising the harbor in Town and then return in the afternoon for hours of swimming and sunbathing at the pristine Madaket Beach.

While the Brant Point Light is the most well-known lighthouse on Nantucket Island, guests of Siasconset vacation rentals can visit the Sankaty Head Light and participate in an enjoyable ride on the bike trails located nearby. Visitors should also be sure to stop by Milestone Bog, for memorable views of the rich autumn colors, and Altar Rock, for the breathtaking sight of Nantucket and the surrounding Cape.

While guests of Cisco Beach vacation rentals will find excellent surfing conditions on this stunning expanse of land, visitors of nearby Dionis vacation rentals can enjoy calm waters that are perfect for swimming or simply walking along the shore at the unspoiled Dionis Beach. Those searching for a more action-packed day, however, can rest their bodies on the soft sands of Surfside Beach. Guests of Surfside vacation rentals will have access to plenty of surf for bodyboarding, large, open spaces for a relaxing picnic, and excellent winds for kite flying.

Other popular accommodations include Tom Nevers vacation rentals, which are close to the heavy surf and coarse sand of the beach, and Wauminet vacation rentals, which are located near the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge and its diverse flora and fauna.

Whether you prefer to lounge on a stunning pile of sand or explore the diverse historical aspects of this lively island, a Nantucket vacation rental makes it easy to participate in everything you love about this Massachusetts getaway destination. Begin your search for the perfect rental home today and enjoy all the comforts of home during your break away from the mainland.
