Signature Experiences

Summer on Nantucket

Summer on Nantucket is iconic- beach days, ice cream cones, and long days that stretch into night. This year many are excited to summer a little longer with us in September.  

Summer Longer, in September

Insiders know that September is the best month to be on the island. Enjoy spectacular summer weather, fewer crowds, and wonderful sense of quiet relaxation throughout the island. Many of The Nantucket Hotel’s summer experiences and amenities are available throughout September.

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.
