Just off the coast of New England, Nantucket Island has always been a prized vacation destination. On a given summer day the population swells with a steady stream of visitors who flock to the extraordinary beauty and history of Nantucket’s shores, its clear skies, and its southwest breezes. Equally significant is the community of people who live on the island year-round. The offseason brings Nantucket to its essence—the vibrant Autumn, peaceful Winters, followed by the magical sounds and sights of Spring. Amongst this endless beauty lies an opportunity to obtain the William Coffin house.

Ideal for alfresco dining, the rear porch, which spans the length of the house, overlooks the lawn, garden, and private ivy-covered shower (a must-have on beach days).
