My place is 3/4 of a mile from 'Sconset village on a quiet road; it is 8 miles from Nantucket Town. You need to take a car over on the Ferry Boat from Hyannis, MA, or rent one on the island-you need to make those arrangements yourself. It close to 4 restaurants, with many more in Nantucket Town. It is 1/2 mile from the beach. Nantucket is full of family-friendly activities. There is a bus stop to go into Nantucket Town 3/4 mile away but the bus only runs twice an hour in the summer.
