Hotels in Nantucket

However upscale the island's reputation becomes, hotels in Nantucket keep their accommodations comfortable and understated. Standout seaside hotels in Nantucket include the Cliffside Beach Club. Originally opened as a private beach club in the 1900s, its situated on Jetties Beach and its one-site restaurant, The Galley, is a local nightlife hub.

One of the best hotels in Nantucket is the Wauwinet, a luxury option on the island's northeastern coast. Here, guests can relax in antique wicker and pine-decked rooms and explore on-site amenities such as wine-tasting sessions, gardens, a private beach and the resident Spa by the Sea. Its sister resort, the White Elephant, rests on Nantucket Harbor and is a popular site for weddings.

Like the Wauwinet and White Elephant, many Nantucket hotels also feature rentable cottages. For a relaxed, family-friendly island vacation, book a stay at the family-run Wade cottages. Built in the 1920s, they include access to plenty of beach chairs, Boogie boards and other toys for a day on the sand.
