The Wauwinet's 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, but don't be misled. Words like "sleek," "glamorous," and "chic" have no meaning here. They're not even on the right coast.

Instead, 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. TOPPER'S restaurant serves exquisite seafood caught fresh off the shores of Nantucket. In keeping with The Wauwinet's ethos of simplicity, dishes are straightforward and speak for themselves. Ask your server to recommend a pairing from TOPPER'S award-winning wine cellar.

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.
