“Charming, Beautiful, and Serene Retreat”
My husband and I came to this beautiful cottage with our dog Jude for our honeymoon. The cottage is private, well decorated, and the outdoor space can't be matched. We loved the location on the island and was able to enjoy all that nantucket had to offer. To top it all off, Lauren, the owner, came by to say hello and congratulated us on our marriage. The process was so easy in renting the beautiful property and we ended up booking another vacation for September before we left. We can't wait to return to this beautiful spot many more times in the future. Truly a gem on this gorgeous island.
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.
“A Secret Gem on Nantucket”
Searching for a quiet and relaxing end-of-summer experience, we found Lesser Light to be the perfect home from which to explore the Serengeti, the miles of bike paths and the solitude of a nearly-deserted Tom Nevers beach. Nestled away from the road and surrounded by beautiful island foliage, the property is a delight for all the senses. The cottage is immaculately maintained and well-appointed with an array of upscale amenities. The huge deck and outdoor shower are sheer pleasure after a bike-ride to the beach or just soaking up the sun on a quiet afternoon. The owners are attentive and gracious, providing prompt assistance and guidance for even the smallest of issues. The only difficult part of the stay was having to pack and leave what we now consider our Nantucket home. We are looking forward to experiencing the cottage in the off-season this year and for years to come.
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!
“Wonderful Cottage for Nantucket Getaway!!”
My boyfriend and I (and our dog, Tyson) needed to getaway from the hustle and bustle of home and we could not have picked a better place to stay! I have absolutely no complaints about this listing. It was clean and stocked with everything you would need. We got groceries the first night and spent most of our time relaxing and grilling on the deck. The location is great because it is just a short drive into town but also just far enough away to get some private time in the Tom Nevers area. We took Tyson to the beach nearby which he LOVED and we enjoyed exploring the island. Lauren and Ron were amazing in all aspects of the rental process. They were easy to reach for any questions or concerns and Lauren provided me with a ton of helpful information about the island and our stay at the cottage. I HIGHLY recommend this listing to any couple looking for some R & R. Would definitely stay here again!!
“Quiet, Quaint Cottage”
Myself, my husband, our 7 month old daughter and our dog truly enjoyed our stay at the Lesser Light. Our trip was kicked off with a warm welcome from Lauren and Ron, who also periodically checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. The cottage was clean, comfy and cozy. And its location was very convenient - a few minutes outside of town, right next to a wonderful bike/walk path, and just up the road from Tom Nevers Beach which had spectacular views. I only wish we could have stayed longer!
We stayed at the cottage with our lab the last week of august 2013. We enjoyed being in a very private residential setting and staying just outside of town. We went to the beach and did the nearby trails/land banks during the day with our dog. 'Sconset was the best! At night it was an easy drive to and from town for dinner and/or drinks if we cooked in. The cottage was clean, homey, and very relaxing. Ron and Lauren were wonderful to work with and we will definitely be contacting them in the future for other vacations!
“Lovely time in Lesser Light Cottage”
I had a fantastic September weekend on Nantucket spent with my girlfriend thanks in large part to our accommodations at this cozy cottage. Located in the center of the Island, it escapes the touristy bustle of the main town. We rented a wrangler for a day which turned out to be crucial as travelling too and from this cabin is not easy and could be expensive if you rely on taxis. With the wrangler we were able to explore the Nantucket wildlife refuge (though we got stuck in the sand and had to get towed out, it only added to the story) on top of getting a fantastic lunch and fresh cooking supplies as Bartlett's Farm. Spending an afternoon at the Cisco brewery/vineyard/distillery was super fun as well. All in all I would highly recommend renting this cottage out as it was very reasonably priced and above par accommodations.
“Adorable Cottage - Like a Doll House - Perfect”
This immaculate cottage was perfect. It was beautifully maintained and had everything we needed. It was cozy, comfy and quiet. We had a great time and can't wait to come back. Also, Lauren and Ron are awesome :)
“Perfect for a young couple (with dogs, especially)”
This really is a wonderful little cottage -- quiet, secluded, with a lovely rural setting. By the third day, my wife was already trying to figure out when we could come back next year. We brought our two dogs and had a great time exploring the island with them. We were very pleased with the cottage's location. There are plenty of trails to walk just across Milestone Road at the Middle Moors. Tom Nevers Beach, which never has much of a crowd, is also a beautiful walk. The bike path along Milestone Road makes it an easy ride into 'Sconset or Nantucket proper. Everything was clean and as-described, and, as others have written, you can tell that it was put together with a great deal of care. Some of my favorite moments on the trip were just sitting out a storm or the midday sun in the alcove. We didn't make much use of the kitchen, but I can verify that it's at least adequate for grilled cheeses. Lastly, Ron and Lauren were very helpful (and very patient with us). It was really a great experience for us and we can't wait to do it again. I would recommend this cottage to any party of a similar size.
