I love going to the Wauwinet for lunch or diner. The atmosphere is so relaxing enhanced by the food. The oysters are local and to die for! Briney with a lingering sweetness.

We were saying at a sister property and decided to go here for dinner. We ordered the tasting menu and after the second course, realized what we were being served wasn't what was on the menu. The server confirmed this and said, oh yes, the menu HAD changed a few days before. Hmmmm, okay then what am I eating? If... More

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 :)))))

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
