Visit the Village of Sconset

Explore the natural beauty of Siasconset (Sconset) on the island of Nantucket.

Commonly referred to as Sconset, this quaint Nantucket village was first settled three centuries ago as a whaling outpost, centered around a lookout tower for spotting the giant sea mammals as they swam off  its shores. Many of Sconset’s cottages date from these early origins, and today are famous for their architecture, historical uniqueness and rose-covered charm.

The Village is eight miles from the town of Nantucket and is easy to reach by the NRTA WAVE or bicycle path. Sconset has its own post office, three restaurants, tennis courts, three golf courses and, of course, endless pristine beaches and dunes.
