Nantucket's newest hotel, the Greydon House, opened in October 2016 after a renovation that included a three-story addition and remodel of a 19th-century home. In a nod to the island, design firm Roman and Williams took their inspiration from Nantucket's lesser-known history—from whaling-era trade with Africa to the artists' colonies that sprung up in 'Sconset village. The hotel is an eclectic and layered interpretation of island style, furnished with antiques, iron-framed beds, and Portuguese tile.
Visitors can expect to find a richly decorated, wood-paneled entrance, complemented by vintage books on Nantucket. The hotel's historical elegance and notable antiques are made even sweeter by the polished amenities: complimentary breakfasts, HDTV, WiFi, swoon-worthy bathrooms, and a much-anticipated restaurant run by chef Marcus Gleadow-Ware (open for lunch and dinner). With only twenty rooms—and a lower price-point than many of its high-end competitors—Greydon House will book up fast in its first full-year in operation on Broad Street.
