The Wauwinet is a quaint, elegant retreat built in 1860 on the northeastern shore of Nantucket, at the edge of the Great Point Wildlife Sanctuary. It boasts a beautiful private bay and ocean beaches, so guests can choose between the lively Atlantic surf or the calm warmer waters bayside. Spend time just relaxing, whale spotting, going on lobstering excursions or taking surfcasting or cooking lessons. Drive the scenic back roads to Great Point, or tour nearby Siasconset in the hotel’s prized 1948 Woody (a vintage Chevy Fleetmaster station wagon). The Wauwinet’s restaurant, Topper’s, with its expansive bay views, is accessible by land or by sea aboard the Wauwinet Lady.
