Nantucket in winter is invigorating – or relaxing – depending on what you want to do!

Unwind in the evening on the all-season, enclosed terrace by our cozy fire pits at Breeze Bar and Cafe, and enjoy a scrumptious dinner or your favorite cocktail. The Nantucket Hotel has plenty of nooks and crannies that are fun to seek out – or curl up with a good book in the spacious sitting area in your suite; play a game of Monopoly in our Game Room; and be sure to sample the delicious offerings at our daily, complimentary Continental Breakfast buffet, which is included in your rate (i.e. two people, per room).
