The most popular time to visit Nantucket is during the summer months when there isn’t a cloud in the sky and the sun is shining. That said, we recommend visiting in the shoulder months during spring or fall. September is most ideal as the weather is still warm, shops are still open, and there aren’t nearly as many crowds as there are during the summer. If you’re feeling adventurous, visiting in December is always a treat as the whole town is wrapped up like a Christmas tree.
For travelers looking for a picturesque summer vacation rental, look no further than Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. Nantucket Island sits thirty miles off of the coast from Cape Cod on the East Coast of the United States and has been one of the nation’s most idyllic summer vacation spots for decades. Located just a short walk from one another the vacation rentals and rental homes that Nantucket offers are as picturesque as you’re imagining on the postcard. Most fit the bill of a beachside bungalow á la New England, but some of them can get pretty modern with full kitchens, large dining areas, and gorgeous views.
