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.

Summer Evenings

With Old Fashioned New England Clambakes each Monday in the Breeze terrace, and live music, drinks, and light bites on the front porch each night of the week, Summer evenings at The Nantucket are full of flavor and good company.

Complimentary Kids Club

Our complimentary Children’s Day program is a fun way for the kids to start the day. With a full morning of programming, from adventures on the hotel’s antique firetruck and Pirate Day, to activities and games with counselors, our Children’s 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 for a beach day and ride in one of our memorable antique vehicles to the beach. 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 Jetties beach. The harbor waters of Children’s Beach are only a short walk from the hotel.

Swimming

The Nantucket has two stunning outdoor swimming pools that are for guests to 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!

Bike Nantucket

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