Description from owner


1 queen, 1 futon sofa (double bed). 1 full bath. Sleeps 2-4.

'Lesser Light' is a charming cottage surrounded by flower gardens and brush, with cathedral ceilings throughout, a fully-equipped kitchen (including dishwasher), washer/dryer, and a very large, completely private deck with dining set with umbrella, two chaise lounges, a hammock, outdoor shower & gas grill. The cottage has one queen bedroom, a separate sleeping area (behind pocket doors) off the main living area with a futon (double pullout bed), and a comfortable chair in the living area. Full bathroom w/ tub/shower. 'Lesser Light' will comfortably sleep up to two couples, but is even more perfect for a couple alone or with 1-2 small children. Good dogs allowed with owner approval (extra fee). 'Lesser Light' is an idyllic getaway with easy access to the south shore beaches and all the attractions of the Island by car, bike, or shuttle bus (bike path and bus stop are 1 block away). 'Lesser Light' can be rented separately or together with our 5BR house 'Incandescence,' listing #295779. Both are set on the same 3 acre property but are privately sited over 300' away from each other, separated by a meandering stone path & screened by thick brush.

$150 cleaning fee for stays shorter than 7 nights; otherwise cleaning is included in rental rate.

$500 security deposit for all stays (refundable).

Dog fee varies depending on size and type, but is generally $100 per dog.

Response from the owner Thanks for your words! We love to hear that Nantucket (and 'Lesser Light') worked for you as a place to relax, have fun, and get ready to face the world as "Mr. and Mrs". And that Bluff Walk is an amazing trek. And it's a fun detail that for no charge at all you get to share the exact views over the Cliff and to the Atlantic beyond that the billionaires who bought those fancy houses paid so many millions to ''own"). Just like the 50+ miles of public beach on the Island these are delights that we call get to share in.

Response from the owner Thanks for your great review. Most people share your delight that the cottage is so private and peaceful (in an island that can get a bit hectic in high season) but that you can still get into the heart of things -- beaches, markets, shops, museums and restaurants - by a quick drive, shuttle bus ride or by bike. Hope that we'll see you back again!

“Charming cottage close to all that's best about Nantucket, yet private and off the beaten trail.”

Response from the owner We're happy to provide a place where dogs, too, can enjoy good Island living. Nantucket is such a dog friendly place it would be a shame to leave them behind. And a long tramp in the nearby 'Serengeti' moors at sunset with a four legged friend - what a treat for all involved! Hope we'll see ALL of you back again next Fall.

Response from the owner Thanks so much for your great review. Over the years we've had Newlyweds, Honeymooners, wedding parties, BabyMooners and even a couple celebrating their dog's first birthday! We are always amazed that whenever someone mentions the best part of their holiday, it's always some unique and unexpected part of the Island that spoke most to them and made their vacation unforgettable. The Island is only 13 miles across but it seems to have enough delights that we rarely hear about the same one twice! Congratulations again on your marriage, and we hope when you visit in the Fall that you'll find even more to enjoy and want to return to.

Response from the owner We have had many guests stay in 'Lesser Light' over the years and, we are pleased to say, so many of them have been happy there. But, without question, you are the very first guests to ever express your pleasure to us in a Nantucket Limerick. (Sadly, it doesn't seem appropriate to post here.) We thank you for your kind words, for your weird rhymes - but mostly we are just pleased that you were able to have such a relaxing and delightful week. There's a reason why so many Islanders say September is their favorite month of the year!
