Spent 3 hrs on a recent morning marveling at the beauty of this area. Seals, birds, and a mile of brown sugar sand beach await you.

If you come to Nantucket to relax and "get away from it all" then the Wauwinet is a step further along that path. It is literally on the other side of the Island, about as far from "town" as one can get. It is both luxurious and relaxing in the best old world hotel sense. The staff is most pleasant... More

Great place to cool down from work and daily headaches. The hotel is a b&b establishment with a great restaurant. Everybody at the front desk were very helpful. I little far away from the city if you stay for more than a weekend . Overall you will enjoy nature and peace . Don't come in winter :)))))

I booked a table for my husband and I in Aug 2014. We took the boat shuttle form the White Elephant, which was nice and ate the Prix Fix Meal. I upgraded to the Tuna which was oily and just overall made me gag. The gnocchi was daily tasteless and the spinach was grainy. The desert was okay. My husband... More

A fabulous place to get away for a few days. Top service, beautiful rooms, lots of amenities .. We felt we were part of an artists picture looking at the spectacular scenery on both the bay and ocean side.we can't wait to come again next year!

Service very poor, many mistakes on the order. Very hotel restaurant like experience with no smiles or interest in what the staff is serving. The lounge chairs are great to sit on after eating, but next time I will bring my own cappy from downtown and skip the food. Dated too…..

We stayed here for nearly a week and it was simply wonderful. Staff were friendly and happy to help with any request. Coffee and freshly baked pastries are provided free from 7 and we took back to our deck to start the day. Cheese and port at 4 is a nice touch. The views from the front lawn are fabulous... More

We had dinner on the patio on a cool rainy night. The heaters kept the patio at a very comfortable temperature but I would recommend the indoor dining room if celebrating an occasion. The food was presented nicely but the meals was not a knock out. We did order a very nice($$$$)bottle of red wine which was decanted and left... More
