While the leaves changing may have you dreaming up those tropical beach vacations, take a word of advice from the pros and put ACK on your list of off-season getaways to check out this year. Visiting during the months of October, November, and December means you can skip the lines and get seats at the bar without the hassle – no rezzies required. Bundle up to take a stroll on the beach and feast your eyes on the groups of seals lounging close to the shore, and get your holiday shopping done at our many fabulous boutique stores, most of which will be running hefty off-season sales!
And how to stay and play with all your family and friends? We say connect with The Copley Group Nantucket, and allow the Grey Lady to become a staple in your hot list of shoulder season field trips! Below we paired five of our favorite properties with when to come bACK!
A five bedroom house big enough to fit the whole crew, AND it’s close to town?! Say no more. With a pool/hot tub combo to die for, and five separate en suites, this house is perfect for everything from a girls getaway, to a family reunion. Just a stones throw from downtown, this house is ideal for venturing to and from some of ACK’s greatest dining spots (like the Greydon House and their Duet Dinners starting this weekend!) and is still in close proximity to some majorly breathtaking views like the walk at Sanford Beach. Book now, while the weather is still good enough to get some late afternoon sun on ACK’s sandy shores!
Monomoy is one of the Grey Lady’s many hidden gems. Tucked away for some tranquility, yet close to the mid-island Stop and Shop, this is the ideal spot to cook (and savor!) a Thanksgiving meal with family and friends! There’s just something about watching sunrise over town, and the feeling of a long stroll along the beach after indulging in a big turkey dinner.. and you can enjoy it all from 32 Monomoy Road! To top it all off, take a quick drive into town Friday evening to witness the tree lighting on Main Street, and get a little Nantucket version of blACK Friday. BONUS: There are two living rooms, two decks AND a loft, so you and your company can truly lounge off that turkey hangover.
If you’re coming to visit for Stroll Weekend on ACK (which is one of our favorite weekends of the year), you want to have ample space for all your friends to gather, and be walking distance to town. 38 Pleasant Street is your answer! The house sleeps 14 and has a family wing in addition to the best bedrooms for singles and couples… basically anyone and everyone who you’d want to join. Mere moments from Main Street, you can stroll in and out without having to worry about transportation. If you do want to bring your ride, don’t fret – you’ve got easy parking, and a bonus garage apartment… complete with a ping pong table!
Christmas at the beach? There’s a Yankee Candle scent for that, and now we understand why! 1 Dolphin Court from The Copley Group Nantucket is right on the route to Jetties Beach, with a beautiful porch, and fully winterized so you can do that family Christmas vacation you’ve always dreamt about! It is the most festive time of the year and you’ll be able to walk EVERYWHERE! So start with lunch at Lola on Christmas Eve, followed by a home cooked meal on Christmas Day and relax in your “great room”, and finish up with a Nautilus dinner the day after. The island is like a Norman Rockwell waiting to come to life… so spend the holidays in your Happy Place and 1 Dolphin Court with its five bedrooms and tons of living space makes it the ideal town location! !
Nantucket is the first place in the US to see the sunrise, so it’s only natural that you’d want to start the New Year on the best island in the world… and 27 Union is close to EVERYTHING. You can transform this into a house for entertaining, or have a chill NYE and host a retreat with friends and savor a wellness weekend! If you want, you can get ready to blow it out and do a Lola/Dune/Town/Nautilus dinner out on NYE with a brunch at Props the next day for a little hair of the dog. AND The Box is always a good time, and there really is no better way to ring in 2018 than enjoying some time on your favorite island. BONUS: The widow’s walk is amazing for views of ACK and this house has the best looking dining room with a chef’s kitchen (have the fine dining come to you), as well as three distinct living areas to lounge in while you decide where your night should take you!
