Spring On-Island

Springtime on Nantucket is a wonderfully social time to visit. As the island’s daffodils bloom to life the island comes alive with reasons to celebrate.

When the daffodils start blooming and spring is in the air, the island is a wonderful place to be. Here are a few reasons why The Nantucket is the place to plant yourself this spring:

  • Antique Firetruck Rides
  • The Nantucket Club fitness facilities
  • Heated pool (seasonal)
  • Hot Tub
  • Water-view suites
  • Walkable distance to downtown & Brant Point Lighthouse
  • Complimentary Ferry Pick-up & Drop-off

Stroll Downtown

With hydrangeas and daffodils in bloom and shops opening for the season, downtown is bustling in the springtime. Stroll past historic houses along cobbled streets on an easy walk from our front door to Main Street!

Meet Hugh. He’s a part of our welcoming party at the front desk, but he’s also one of the best sidewalk historians on Nantucket. Ask him about his walking tours of historic downtown Nantucket.


If you’re feeling stir crazy with Breeze closed, we’re happy to share that we’ll be back open on March 10th (and looking better than ever…)


If you’re a regular, you might already know him. He’s been a familiar face at Breeze for more than 10 years.

Breeze is back open on March 10th. We’ll see you then.


We don’t show preference when it comes to guests checking in, except for our Pup & Play guests. They get an extra treat.

Our pool will be open for April School Vacation.

Make your plans today and make a family getaway to the island this spring break.


Maybe you’ve already met him. He’s our General Manager’s faithful pal, and a regular fixture of our lobby. Here he is soaking up some Caribbean sun at our sister resort in St. John, @lovangoresort.


We’re closed for the month of February, but is open so members can keep their fitness groove on.


Looking forward to all the brides and grooms we get to celebrate with this year. Check out @thenantucketweddings for a look at how we like to get down!
