The White Elephant has graced Nantucket's harbor since the 1920s. Oozing maritime character, this unique hotel spa blends island charm and eclectic design with sophisticated amenities and cuisine.

Expect huge lobster (up to two pounds) when you order the seafood platter at Brant Point Grill.
The White Elephant has a long history of watching over Nantucket's magnificent harbor. Since the 1920s, it's provided a prime location to explore the cobblestone streets lined with boutiques, galleries, museums, and restaurants that make this island so well-loved.

Whether you choose a Room, a Suite, a Loft, or a Cottage, the New England charm comes included. The white wicker of the Harborside Lawn provides the perfect setting for gin and tonic and witty conversation on a warm afternoon, or you might indulge in a mint iced tea and seaweed therapy at the spa. At dinner, tempt your palate with fine cuisine and a special bottle from the White Elephant's award-winning cellar. Then, perhaps, the library's plush sofa will invite you to curl up with a book and a glass of port by the fire.
