Adjacent to the Great Point wildlife sanctuary, The Wauwinet is the only inn on Nantucket flanked by both the Atlantic Ocean and Nantucket Bay, offering the luxury of two private beaches – one with lively surf, the other with calm, warmer waters. Located just nine miles from bustling Nantucket Town, The Wauwinet is a serene retreat, combining the charm and comfort of a seaside cottage with the sophistication of an elegant European inn. This shoreline property is unrivaled in Nantucket, providing guests the perfect springboard from which to explore the island's maritime and land-bound attractions.
The Wauwinet is among the finest accommodations in Nantucket, and perhaps all of New England. Guests will find understated elegance and quiet sophistication, the hallmarks of The Wauwinet experience. Open seasonally from May 18 to October 24, this shoreline hotel prides itself on providing impeccable service and food of national renown.
Rooms achieve a cottage atmosphere using simple patterns and comfortable furniture. The full range of in-room amenities is complemented by the presence of fresh Nantucket wild flowers, and linens are second to none.
