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.

  • 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

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!

Before finding his way to the kitchen, Chef Sireci worked as an audio engineer and a guitarist with aspirations to be the next Eric Clapton. “Creating menus that satisfy a person’s five senses is like composing a song. Cooking and music require similar cadence of creativity”. Chef Sireci comes to us from New York City where he led the kitchen at @fineandrarenyc and @theflatironroom. He lands on Nantucket alongside his wife Marla and their adorable dog, Mona Lisa. ...
