Nice place close to town down a quiet residential street in view of the ferry terminal. Great place for that quintessential Nantucket photo.

Beautiful lighthouse on the tip of the island is a must see. When I was there, a couple was taking wedding photos - special place! Coast Guard station is down the street.

This light was waiting to welcome us to the island of Nantucket. It was good to see. The lighthouses are such a part of the island culture!

Unsure about that but made us wonder as well. It would make an excellent B&B or other type rental. What a location.
