It takes a bit of extra effort to
get yourself to most very special places.
The Wauwinet is no exception. Of course it's always worth it even if you have to fly or sail (a great characteristic of island vacationing!). The Wauwinet is widely civilized. The last stop before the least inhabited place on Nantacket, yet just minutes by jitney from the center of town or somewhat longer by bicycle.
Your sojourn here is both lazy and inspired.
After opening the door to your bedroom, descending the stairs into the library, you've travelled back in time.
Once you've been, you know you belong there.
Just follow the monarchs to your home in Nantucket Island.
Next to a wildlife sanctuaruy the Wauwinet has 26 miles of the island's 82 miles of beach!
Picture this style of New England:
Grey weathered shingle buildings; gorgeous interiors with a touch of wicker.
Welcome to the good-life.
The Wauwinet consists of twenty-six bedrooms and a cluster of individual cottages. Two private beaches. One on the Atlantic. One on Nantucket Bay. The grounds of the inn are a fantasy of gentle dunes, paths, green lawns, and water views.
And food. Food is important here! As a matter of fact, the menu at Topper's, The Wauminet's renowned restaurant is an adventure in and of itself. Always changing and always incredible! The wine cellar is stocked with 20,000 bottles and 900 vintages, and constant winner of the Wine Spectator Grand Award. The Wauwinet's Topper are two things that add up to something special.
The Wauwinet is getting that urge to walk barefoot on the beach. This is a vacation for all your senses. It is the monochrome of winter. A brandy by a crackling late autumn fire.
