Seasons
A Nantucket Summer

Only at The Nantucket

Welcome to The Nantucket Hotel, the last of the Grand Old hotels on Nantucket Island. Built in 1891 and lovingly restored to its historic footprint in 2012. Situated in Brant Point, only steps from Main Street, there’s no shortage of fun to be had at the Hotel and in our neighborhood when summer comes to the Island.

With shuttle runs to the beach, a short walk to Brant Point Lighthouse, weekly clambakes, water-view suites, two pools, and antique fire truck rides, The Nantucket Hotel is the perfect place to bring summer to life!

Scroll down to learn more:

Stroll Downtown

With shopping, dining, and sightseeing along its timeless cobblestone streets, Main Street Nantucket is bustling with activity all summer long. Just a short and beautiful stroll from the front door of the Hotel, downtown is our backyard and our guests enjoy the unique access that comes with it!

Complimentary Kids' Club

Our complimentary Kids’ Club program is a fun way for your kids to start the day. With a full morning of programming – from adventures on the Hotel’s antique fire truck and Pirate Day, to activities and games with our Counselors – our Kids’ Club program is a great way for them to make friends and memories – while giving you the morning off from being a parent!

Walk or Ride to the Beach

Pack up for a fun beach day and ride in one of our memorable antique vehicles to the shore. With beach runs posted in the lobby every day, let us take the hassle out of getting to and from the beach – and make it fun, too! Shuttles make runs to Surfside and Jetties beaches. The Harbor waters of Children’s Beach are only a short walk from the Hotel. 

Bike Nantucket

There are no shortages of places a bike can take you on Nantucket. Bring your own bike, or pre-reserve one from Young’s Bike Shop (delivered right to the Hotel!) and enjoy miles of bike routes from town to beach and back. 

Swimming

The Nantucket Hotel has two stunning outdoor swimming pools that our guests can enjoy. Choose between the fun of our family pool or the serenity of our adult pool at The Nantucket Club. Poolside food & drink service is available all season long!

Walk to the Lighthouse

Our most iconic neighbor is one of the first sights that will catch your eye if you arrive by boat. Brant Point Lighthouse is just a short walk from our front door and is the perfect destination for a morning walk with a cup of coffee. 

Old-Fashioned Clambakes

Old-fashioned clambakes are a Monday night tradition, all summer long, at The Nantucket Hotel. Join us for an evening of live music, timeless coastal fare, and good company around the tables on our terrace!

Pinot on the Porch

After a long day at the beach, unwind with some live music and a glass of wine on our front porch! Nightly light bites and drinks are offered on our front porch all summer long and are the perfect place to gather to plan the night or just relax and listen to the sounds of acoustic guitar under the glow of sparkling lights. 

The Nantucket Club

Nantucket’s premier spa and fitness clus is located at The Nantucket Hotel and our guests can enjoy access to The Club’s classes, pool, gym, spa, and locker room facilities. Keep fit while you’re with us, join a yoga class, or schedule a session with our award-winning personal trainer!

Two-Island Adventure

We’ve made it just as easy to enjoy Martha’s Vineyard while you’re with us at The Nantucket Hotel. Whether it’s a day trip to this neighboring island or an overnight stay at our award-winning sister resort, Winnetu Oceanside Resort, we’ve got you covered!
