Nantucket Town's largest, plushest resort—on a prime spot at the northern edge of Nantucket Harbor—is often booked for spring and fall weekend weddings. A part of Nantucket Island Resorts and sister hotel of the Wauwinet, the White Elephant includes the original hotel and cottages, as well as the White Elephant Village (residences and inn) and two new downtown lofts. The historic hotel at the heart of the property has an expansive waterfront patio and chaise-dotted green lawns.

All accommodations feature a cream-and-white palette, elegantly furnished with nautical wall prints and upholstery in bright blue or red gingham. Many have water views, and some have gas fireplaces. Families often choose one of the 11 stand-alone cottages or village homes instead—set among gardens, most have two or three bedrooms and kitchenettes.

The two newly built lofts in Nantucket's downtown are modern takes on the White Elephant's breezy style, each with three bedrooms. These luxury apartments are ideal for visitors that want to soak up Nantucket's jet-setting scene—the loft on Easy Street even offers a complimentary BMW SUV for exploring the island's nooks and crannies in style.
