Once a haven for rustic B&Bs, Nantucket’s visitors have ushered in a new wave of hotels with luxe amenities and top-of-the-line accommodations. In the last five years, investors have transformed majestic homes into bespoke inns like the Regatta Inn, 76 Main, and the new Greydon House, setting a new standard on the island for B&B hospitality.

Nantucket’s oldest hotel has also been gutted and transformed into the Nantucket Hotel & Resort—a family-friendly resort complete with complimentary childcare and a state-of-the-art fitness facility. Its neighbor the White Elephant has expanded to include the White Elephant Village, which provides apartments and cottage-style accommodations for larger parties.

People seeking a reminder of old Nantucket—quieter and without frills—would enjoy the sparse but perfectly situated Wade Cottages in the village of ‘Sconset or the understated grandeur of the Wauwinet.
