Hydrangea Cottage is the Nantucket home you thought no longer existed. A beach house with rustic charm, a short walk to a magnificent beach, it is perfect for couples and families alike. The house was built in the early 1970s by artists and still has an artsy feel, with paintings on many walls. Bike paths and the public shuttle bus are nearby and the Nantucket town is only 3 miles away. Hydrangea Cottage is encircled by trees that create a calming experience. Welcome to the Old Nantucket.

We enjoyed our stay at the Hydrangea Cottage. The location is perfect- a short walk to the beach, just up the shore from Surfside. The cottage is as pictured- rustic, but with everything you need for a lovely vacation.

Hydrangea Cottage is a lovely place to stay! It's not far from town, it's very close to the beach and the surrounding area is very peaceful. I could not recommend it more for anyone looking for a cute cottage within walking distance to the water.

Diana's cottage is very rustic. Quiet neighborhood. Helpful manual as to where to go and good places to visit.
