Upstairs Twin Bedroom: The upstairs bedroom has two twin beds and a bookshelf full of childrens books and games. A separate hallway bath has a single vanity sink and tub and shower.

Downstairs Bedroom: The first floor bedroom has a queen sized bed, and a brand new ensuite bath.

Loft: There is a loft, accessed by a ship's ladder, above the great room which has two captain's twin beds. This is a fun sleeping area for kids, but they should be old enough to get up and down the ladder on their own.

Basement Bunk Room: The basement has twin twin bunk beds and a daybed. This is another good area for children. In addition to the bunks, the room has a new 48 inch Smart TV, and a chair for kids to hang out and watch TV. There is a large basement window so the basement does get sunlight in the morning and throughout the day.


BRAND NEW pool in 2016. The pool is a 20 ft wide by 40 ft long heated, saltwater pool. (no hot tub). The pool has two bluestone patios - one with four chaise lounges and three small tables; and one connecting the pool to the pool cabana, with a seven foot long bar height table with six stools. The cabana is flanked by two private outdoor showers with connected changing areas on either side. The cabana is a a 9x12 ft. room to house pool toys, towels, outdoor kitchenware (plastic plates, glasses and wine glasses) with two oversized chairs and an ottoman.

Living Areas

Kitchen: The kitchen is fully stocked with enough plates, glassware and cutlery for 24. We have all the amenities of your home kitchen: toaster, coffee maker, blender, microwave, griddle and waffle maker. We have stocked the house with basic spices, oils and other cooking essentials so you can enjoy meals cooked at home. The center island in the kitchen holds a 4 burner range and oven, and the kitchen has a dishwasher and plenty of counter space.

Front Living Room: A sunken front living room has a sofa, love seat and chairs which center around the fireplace and new 48 inch Smart TV.

Great Room: The great room at the back of the house is flooded with sunlight and doubles as the dinning room and family room. The 10 foot table which comfortably seats 12 can be expanded to 13 feet with two leaves. The family room has a sofa, an oversized chair and chair with an ottoman arranged around a 58 inch TV, which has Apple TV and Comcast cable. A ships ladder leads to the loft, which has two twin captains beds. The great room has two french doors which open directly onto the back deck, which has a sectional that comfortably seats 10.


The front side entrance brings you directly into the mudroom, which has anchor hooks for towels above benches and is an ideal place to keep all your beach gear, including beach toys, sunscreen and towels. This is right next to the laundry room to clean or dry any items on your return from the beach. We have two brand new washer/dryers for 2017, to support lots of laundry for big groups. You can also walk through the mudroom to the back deck, to any of the three outdoor showers.

Outdoor Areas:

We have a back deck off of the great room, that has a large sectional couch which can comfortably seat 10 people. There is an outdoor shower off of the back deck. Off of the kitchen is a hedged-in brick terrace with a teak outdoor dinning table that seats 8.

The pool has two decks - one with four chaise lounges and one with a bar height table seating 6.

The house is fully stocked with linens and towels, as well as pool and beach towels, 12 beach chairs and a beach umbrella. We have 10 beach cruiser bicycles, which can be used to explore the island. Some of them have baskets while others have rear over-the-wheel racks.

We have wifi, cable, PS3 and Apple TV. The whole house has multi-zone A/C so while you might not need it, it is nice to know you have it.

Adorable, comfortable, tons of amenities

  • 5 of 5

This property was tucked away but still an easy bike or drive to downtown and a quick bike to the Cisco Brewery. The space is the big plus with this property, not only did it sleep a good number of guests in beds, but the outdoor space was incredible! The pool was beautiful, the back deck seating area was great (cushions need updating but were clean enough). The interior is decorated to perfection, clean as could be and offered all the right amenities and supplies. The bikes came in handy (although not all were in working condition, most were) and the dual refrigerators was helpful for lots of food and drink for our long weekend stay. Meg was terrific to work with, she was very on top of communication, provided all the right details and was very welcoming. I definitely recommend the property and hope to visit again!

Amazing girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend! The house is even more beautiful than the pictures! We had an amazing girls weekend and were able to make full use of the house, pool and central location. It's an easy bike ride to the beach and quick uber/taxi rides downtown.

The house has plenty of space and easily accommodated our large group of 15. We enjoyed the indoor and outdoor dining and living areas and of course the beautiful pool! The house comes fully equipped with all of the essentials you'll need to enjoy a wonderful trip to Nantucket!

Meg was extremely helpful and made for a smooth and easy rental experience! Thank you!

great pool and location

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our 2 week stay on Nantucket and our group (all adults, no kids, many return visitors to Nantucket) was unanimous that the best thing about 12 Hawthorne Rd. is the pool, which we enjoyed every day. The location enables flexibility - it's easy to bike to things and even walk into town, and we love the Miacomet/Cisco neighborhood and all the amenities it has to offer (Cisco Brewery, Bartlett Farm, Miacomet Golf). We had a few issues during our stay (with the TVs, gas grill, and air conditioning) and Meg and her handy man Ed responded quickly. Some characteristics of the rental either impacted our stay or may be of interest to potential renters:

1) The pool is lovely but there are only 4 (as pictured) chaises and no umbrellas - on a sunny day, there is no shade. We used some of the beach chairs near the pool so that more people could sit. The tall rattan table is stylish but kind of wobbly.

2) There are ample plates, flatware and glassware, but for a large house we found that there were not adequate large pots and sturdy cooking utensils to make meal preparation for a large group easy;

3) The bathroom configuration requires that lots of people share few bathrooms. The bedroom above the garage and master have en suite bathrooms. So if the house is at capacity (13-15 people), that means that 9-11 people are sharing 2 bathrooms. The first floor bathroom is quite small, and has 2 doors, into the first floor bedroom and the hall, affording little privacy. On the 2nd floor, in addition to the master, there is a bedroom with 2 twin beds and a hall bathroom. To manage traffic during our stay, several people sleeping in the basement used the 2nd floor bathroom;

4) The basement bunk room has no bathroom, no closet, and no mirrors, and a loud dehumidifier that cycles on and off on a continuous basis, and foot traffic in the kitchen above the bunk room is quite loud. Several sleepers there resorted to using earplugs;

5) Poison ivy abounds on Nantucket and in the 25 years I've been traveling to the island, it seems to have gotten more pervasive. When we were there, there was poison ivy in the yard around some trees near the pool house, which we alerted Meg about. This might be an issue for renters with little kids playing in the yard;

6) Some of the finishes in the house, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms, need updating – towel racks and cabinet knobs fell off during our stay and the trash bin cabinet in the kitchen island was falling apart.

Big and beautiful.....Inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

We live in New England, so the plan was to have friends and family meet us in Nantucket as their schedules permitted. As few as 5 of us and as many as 13 stayed in the home and everyone was accommodated perfectly.

The key inside was 2 separate living areas, as well as a basement area that worked for the older kids. The inside furnishings were clean and stylish, but most importantly, liveable and felt at ease and able to relax. The outside areas, in particular the pool area, were fantastic. The kids played basketball, Spike Ball, etc...but spent most of their time by the beautiful pool.....a true game changer for a family vacation.

The location is close enough to town and the beach to walk, or ride bikes, but a car, or quick Uber ride should be planned for as well.

Finally, I can't say enough about the fantastic communication from the owner. From the early stages of finding a home and inquring about rates and specific details of the property, to ferry ride info, payments, etc...the owner was incredibly friendly and quick to respond.

We definitely recommend.....enjoy.

Beautiful, huge home, centrally located on Nantucket!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends had a mini reunion weekend and found the perfect spot in Hawthorne Lane. The pictures of this home do not do it justice! There is a ton of indoor and outdoor space. The inside is decorated beautifully. The outdoor space is never ending! The yard is maintained to perfection. There is outdoor furniture to relax by the house or the pool, and a table to enjoy meals outside. There were many bikes (in great shape too) that made it easy to get into town and explore the island. The location was perfect. We were right in between town and Cisco/Cisco beach which made it easy to bike or Uber in short time. I could go on and on about this place and the quick responsiveness of the owners. I highly recommend staying here.

Wonderful home for children and adults

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 3 weeks at this beautiful property. All issues were quickly handled by the owner and their on-island caretaker. The home was comfortable, clean, and has plenty of space for families to spread out or cozy up. The pool is especially wonderful.

Our home is located just outside of town - down a dirt road, where Milk Street becomes Hummock Pond Road. We have a full acre of cleared lawn with an expansive front and back lawn for games, relaxation and sun.

We are 1.3 miles from town, which if you are visiting in the summer, you would likely want to walk into for shopping, dinner or exploring, even if you have a car, because parking can be very difficult in the crowded summer months.

We are 2.9 miles from the South Shore beaches of Cisco and Miacomet, with Surfside just a little further away. We are right on the bike path, and you and your family can use any of our 10 bikes to bike around the island and to the beaches.

Cisco Brewery is a short walk or ride away at 1.3 miles.
