Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for providing your beautiful home for us to stay on beautiful Nantucket. We were here to celebrate our matriarch's 70th birthday and, young and old, everyone had a wonderful time. We hate to have to leave! So many nice memories. Pilgrim's Bliss is perfect.

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in luxury properties all of the world and would recommend this home with a full 5 stars. Although only two of us stayed in the home, it could accommodate any large family with kids. The house is set for both kids to hangout and for adults to have adult time. But even with two people we were very comfortable. Robin is a joy to work with and is very attentive. The grounds are stunning and wonderfully cared for and the lake is a great place to unwind after the day. Location to town is excellent, a quick walk or short drive. A great home in ACK!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We try our best, tweaking things each year to accommodate an extended family in warmth and comfort, not just as a luxury rental. Warm regards, Robin

Great place for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in ACK and loved our time at Pilgrim's Bliss. It worked great for the four days we had the whole family there. The pool was the highlight and the deck space was fabulous for our dinners. We had a couple catered dinners and rented some tables and chairs which worked great. The easy walk to Steps Beach proved manageable even for my 87 year old mother and the Juice Bar was also well within range. My wife and I walked everyday, a few mornings down to Eel Point Rd and Dionis Beach (yesterday morning in a very steady rain!) and one morning took the group out to loop Smith Point. That was a highlight. Lots of great memories for all

Amazing Family Vacation Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 16 stayed at the "Pilgrim Bliss" house over July 4th week, and "bliss" it was.

Only minutes away from the beach and town, we had endless options of how to spend out warm summer days. Nights at Pilgrim Bliss were spent huddled around the campfire, lounging out on the beautiful wrap-around porch, overlooking the backyard and pool. It was such a great way to spend our holiday. The house came fully equipped with everything we needed to make this July 4th perfect at our home away from home.

Thank you Pilgrim Bliss for helping us make family memories for life!

Perfection on Nantucket

  • 5 of 5

Pilgrim's Bliss is aptly named . . . the home is impeccable yet comfortable, close to town yet serene, spacious yet warm . . . we couldn't have asked for more! I rented the home for a group of 12 women and we were impressed with everything from the decor to the landscaping to the enviably outfitted kitchen! Our group so loved the back deck fireplace, and we spent hours chatting and visiting in this beautiful space. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the showers luxurious and the proximity to Steps beach and Something Natural made for easy and fun walking excursions for sandwiches and sunshine . . . so perfectly Nantucket! Working with the owner was a dream, and we can't wait to book this piece of heaven again. We had high expectations going in, and they were surpassed. Well done!

Gorgeous Property ideally located!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous manicured property, located about a mile from Nantucket village and about 1/2 mile to Stepps beach which was ideal for my young grandchildren. The House was spotlessly clean, spacious, with beautiful architectural details and all the amenities of home. Each bedroom had a very large bathroom for optimum privacy. We loved the attached guest house which was just as charming as the main house. Sitting by the pool in the evening provided a nice way to wind down after a busy day of touring, biking, swimming. When we dined in, it was always on the large outdoor porch that accommodated our 14 family members. Fun to be all together! We loved the local bakery, "Something Natural" which was a short walk or bike ride away-delicious home made breads and pastries, plus sandwiches for lunch. A safe bike path was right across the street from Pilgrim Rd, so we felt very comfortable allowing the children to ride. Nearby Barlett Farms provided us with delicious fresh produce and cheeses. I guess I can just sum this up by saying this property is on the top of the list of our favorite annual family vacations. From 8 to 80 years old, there was something for everyone to do and enjoy.

Pilgrim's Bliss is located just off Cliff Road, one of the most exclusive areas of Nantucket, a stones throw from the popular Westmoor Club, 5 minutes walk to Step's Beach, 1 minute drive to the Something Natural sandwiches/picnic area, and a 2 minute drive to town
