Late cancellations have a significant impact on us due to our Island location and seasonal nature. Vacancies caused by early departures are considered to be cancellations and full payment of your reserved stay is expected. The cancellation policy does not apply to room blocks. Reservations moved to 2021 due to Covid, regardless of stay dates, are nonrefundable if canceled unless we are sold out and able to rebook the space.  If we are sold out, a refund will be offered less a 10% administrative fee.

Before confirming your reservation please check with your own state’s quarantine requirements upon your return from vacationing with us. These quarantine requirements are starting to loosen up significantly across the country for domestic travel. Refunds are not allowed for quarantine requirements in your own state so please determine this before you confirm your reservation with us.

Reservations for stays between June 25th and Labor Day have the following administrative fees and policies:

  • Fully refundable if canceled by February 1, 2021
  • For cancellations made by May 1, 2021, there is a $300.00 administrative fee per reservation
  • Cancellations made thereafter are non-refundable unless we are sold out for the entire period of your reservation (less a 10% administrative fee)

Reservations for stays between Labor Day and June 24th (excluding certain periods listed below) have the following administrative fees and policies:

  • For cancellations of more than 60 days prior to your arrival date, there is a  $50.00 administrative fee
  • For cancellations of 30-60 days prior to your arrival date, there is a $150.00 administrative fee
  • Cancellations made within 30 days prior to your arrival date are non-refundable unless we are sold out for the entire period of your reservation (less a 10% administrative fee)

PLEASE NOTE: For the below specialty periods, the following cancellation policy applies 

  • Elin Hilderbrand, Daffodil, Winefest, Memorial Day Weekend, Jefferies Conference, Film Festival, Columbus Day Weekend, Thanksgiving (including the following weekend), and Nantucket Christmas Stroll.
  • Cancel more than 60 days prior to your arrival dates = $50.00 administrative fee.
  • Cancel within 60 days prior to your arrival date = Non-refundable unless we are sold out for the entire period of your reservation (less a 10% administrative fee).

If either the boats or the airplanes are operating to/from Cape Cod, we expect guests to arrive as expected whether or not they planned to arrive by boat or plane. If all transportation to/from Cape Cod has been canceled on a given day, then a credit toward a future stay – or refund – will be issued for that night’s lodging. Once transportation services resume, guests are expected to arrive for the balance of their reservation. Travel delays, air cancellations from locations other than Cape Cod, missed connections, medical or any other travel issues will not merit any credits or refunds. These potential unforeseen problems are best addressed with travel insurance, as mentioned above.

In the unlikely event of a hurricane or severe weather conditions, refunds will only be considered after the storm and only if two or more nights are unable to be occupied after the storm

Experience spring migration on Nantucket!

Spring migration brings a rich variety of seabirds, shorebirds, and waterfowl to the island each year, drawing amateur and professional ornithologists alike to catch a glimpse of the activity along the Atlantic Flyway in the island’s unique ecosystem. American Oystercatchers, Piping Plovers, and Northern Gannets, are staples of Nantucket’s birding season each spring.

This season we’ve partnered with the Linda Loring Nature Foundation to create a one-of-a-kind week of birding, socializing, presentation, and discussion to bring Spring migration on the island to life for enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels, including complimentary daily excursions during the week.

Led by LLNF Naturalist Seth Engelbourg, an expert on the island’s flora, fauna, and avian ecology, this program takes guests and locals alike into some of the island’s most exclusive birding sites for a closer look at the island’s annual migratory guests. Complete with a full weekend program of presentations and discussion, this program is designed to accommodate all levels of interest and experience.

Join us for a night or two between May 10th and 14th and enjoy complimentary birding each morning, or join us or for the full weekend program from May 14th - 16th.
