Signature Experiences

High Summer

Summer on Nantucket is iconic- beach days, ice cream cones, and long days that stretch into night. 

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. Here are a few reasons why The Nantucket does summer like no one else:

  • Antique Firetruck Rides
  • Complimentary Children’s Program
  • The Nantucket Club Fitness Facilities
  • Beach Shuttles
  • Two Heated Pools
  • Water-View Suites
  • Weekly Old-Fashioned Clambakes
  • Nightly Front Porch Entertainment & Refreshments
  • Afternoon Lemonade & Cookies
  • Walkable Distance to Downtown & Brant Point Lighthouse
  • Complimentary Ferry Pick-Up & Drop-Off

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!

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 being a parent!

The Nantucket Club

Nantucket’s premier spa and fitness clus is located at The Nantucket Hotel and our guests 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. 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!

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 Surfside and Jetties beaches. The Harbor waters of Children’s Beach is 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. 

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.

Comfort Food
Italian
Mexican

In addition, our survey said that many of you want a kids to-go menu and prefer curbside pick-up rather than delivery. We are working on updating our menu with some great new dishes to include your choices. Stay tuned for a new menu tomorrow and thanks for taking our survey!

Breeze is open tonight for curbside dinner pickup!

Welcome, spring! Hoping for blossoms like this soon! 📸 @anantucketsummer .
