The Rose Covered Cottages of ‘Sconset Nantucket

Walking around the streets in the ‘Sconset section of Nantucket is always a treat. But the first two weeks of July is the magic moment when the neighborhood comes alive with the bright red and pink blooms of the French Roses that cover the cottages all over town. 

You will feel like you’ve been transported to an English countryside as you walk up and down the streets with little cottages, fences and trellises that are blanketed in bursts of bright red roses, with many of them framing the quarterboards that spell out the delightful names of these quaint little homes.
