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.
Ideally located on the Northeast corner of Nantucket Island, The Wauwinet neighbors the breathtaking Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge and features private beaches on the Atlantic shoreline and Nantucket Bay. The historic hotel includes 32 guest rooms, as well as four charming cottages. Each of the rooms is uniquely decorated with bespoke furnishings, hand selected accents, and an abundance of fresh Nantucket wildflowers. Guests of The Wauwinet enjoy pristine coastline and picturesque sunsets as well as a variety of signature outdoor recreational activities, scenic drives, and exquisite cuisine.
