Time & Tide is a stylish new island retreat conceived and designed by real estate entrepreneur and interior designer Melanie Gowen. Nestled on a private shell lane, the cottage oasis is a short walk or bike ride to the center of Town and harbor. Offering a delightful escape for the discerning traveler, Melanie has channeled her love for the ocean and Nantucket’s maritime culture into the thoughtfully appointed, artfully designed vacation rental. Head-turning details like sail-upholstered lounge chairs and vintage signal flags firmly root the cottage to its nautical locale. The galley kitchen features a spacious farm sink, top end appliances, and a cute peninsula with breakfast seating. Two first floor bedroom suites are accented by grasscloth wallpaper and pickled floors, while the loft nook with 2 twin beds tucked in by a porthole window is a ship-shape spot for kids. Want to book a stay in this Nantucket getaway? Rates for Time & Tide start at $650 per night and can be booked here.
