The Wauwinet.

Hotel and restaurant on the seafront. United States,Nantucket

Unique in the world: tour nearby Siasconset in the hotel’s prized 1948 Woody (a vintage Chevy Fleetmaster station wagon).

Eric and Bettina Landt, Maîtres de Maison, present their property:

The Wauwinet is a quaint, elegant retreat built in 1860 and situated on the northeast end of the island of Nantucket, at the edge of the Great Point Wildlife Sanctuary. It boasts a beautiful private bay and ocean beaches where guests can enjoy either the lively surf of the ocean or the calm warmer waters bayside. Spend time just relaxing, or going on lobstering excursions, taking surfcasting lessons or cooking classes. Drive the scenic backroads to Great Point, or tour nearby Siasconset in the hotel’s prized 1948 Woody (a vintage Chevy Fleetmaster station wagon). There is of course also the opportunity for whale spotting, as whales have played an integral part in Nantucket’s history. The inn is private and serene yet easily reached being only nine miles outside Nantucket Town. The Wauwinet’s restaurant, TOPPER’S, features expansive bay views and is accessible from Nantucket Town by land or by sea aboard the inn’s very own Wauwinet Lady.
