We call the cottage Bufflehead after the small black-and-white ducks on the pond. The house is small, 1100 square feet. It faces west to an osprey pole and 767 acres of conservation land across the pond — Ram Pasture and Sanford Farm. It’s 1000 feet from the Atlantic ocean at the foot of the pond, which you can see from the deck and hear if there is surf. An osprey, mute swans, a snowy egret and Canada geese are usually visible on the pond. There’s often good surfing at nearby lifeguarded Cisco beach, 1000 feet on a dirt road or by kayak on the pond.

Additional Location Information

The cottage, "Bufflehead," is on Hummock Pond, which is two miles long. Bufflehead faces west to an osprey pole and 767 acres of conservation land across the pond — Ram Pasture and Sanford Farm. It’s 1000 feet from the Atlantic ocean at the foot of the pond, which you can see from the deck and hear if there is surf. An osprey, mute swans, a snowy egret and Canada geese are usually visible on the pond. There’s often good surfing at lifeguarded Cisco beach, 1000 feet down a dirt road or by kayak on the pond.
Enjoy the solitude—views, birds, quiet, napping in the hammock, smelling the sea breeze, reading a good book. There’s also room for activity—swimming, body surfing, surfboarding, shell collecting, kayaking, fishing, jogging, biking, hiking and nature, wildlife and architecture photography. There are often striking sunsets over the pond. Downtown Nantucket is just three miles away, an easy bike ride. Nantucket is an authentic 1840s whaling village, with a 1686 house, windmill, and superb whaling museum. It’s also an arts center with three theater companies and dozens of artists, sculptors, photographers and writers who call it home.
There's off-road parking at Bufflehead for three cars. You can bring your own car on the Steamship Authority ferry, or you can bike and walk and use taxis, and the Nantucket Regional Transportation Authority busses, or rent a car on the Island. Cape Air and Nantucket Air serve Nantucket from Boston, Providence and other cities.
