About Moonrakers

Welcome to Moonrakers, a thoughtfully renovated whaling captain’s house in the heart of Nantucket’s historic district.  Built in 1806 by carpenter Lot Hinckley, this 4BR/3.5BA home (sleeps 8+) radiates island style and charm.  Authentic architectural details, classic yet comfortable decor, in-town convenience, and secure off-street parking are just a few of the reasons why you will fall in love with Moonrakers. The house can accommodate 8 people with extra sofa beds and a third-floor loft in case of overflow. Moonrakers’ recently revamped gourmet kitchen features updated amenities including Viking appliances, stainless cookware, and Carrera marble countertops.  Enjoy an island adventure any season with 6 working fireplaces or central A/C, and classic mahogany furnishings with indigo blue and white decor.  The house is 2500+ square feet and has 9 rooms. The first floor has living and dining rooms with fireplaces; a kitchen, laundry room, a first-floor queen bedroom, and a powder room. Our large first floor bedroom has a queen bed and wall mounted television. The second floor has a common den area and 3 bedrooms with private baths: 1) a rear king bedroom with a private master bath with tub and shower 2) a front king bedroom with a fireplace and private bath (shower), and 3) a two twin bedroom with fireplace and private bath (shower). There is a powder room and outdoor shower for an added convenience for the occupants of the first-floor bedroom.

In addition to Moonwalkers’ classic island style, its location is truly ideal. 29 Union is a four-minute walk to Main Street where you will find independent boutiques, restaurants, art galleries, a movie theatre, library, whaling museum, the boat basin, and both grocery & liquor stores.  Best of all, Moonrakers offers 3 off-street parking spaces so you can enjoy the beach by day and town by night without the parking hassle!  We look forward to your visit!
