We have stayed at The Wauwinet three times and were also married there, so we know the property well. Highly recommend the bay facing rooms, which have fantastic views. The Wauwinet is about a 15 minute drive from town or a 50 minute boat ride, which we like to do in the evening if venturing to town for dinner. We consider the location to be a key positive attribute, as it is away from the throngs in town and near both bay and beach. We love taking bike rides to Sconset, although people who enjoy being out and about might see value in renting a car. The inn does run regular shuttle service and it works well. Topper's, the restaurant, is always great and the wine list is justly renowned.
Overall, a fantastic retreat and we will continue to return each year.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- THE WAUWINETSituated in between the Atlantic Ocean and Nantucket Bay, The Wauwinet is the island’s only Relais & Châteaux hotel. An adults-only escape, it is the stuff of storybook romance. Its grounds are beautifully landscaped, with unmatched views and access to two beaches – one on the ocean and one on the bay. The 33-room inn is a study in luxe comfort, from Pratesi linens to antique armoires and private sundecks. TOPPER’S, its New American cuisine restaurant, is consistently ranked one of the top in New England. A continual recipient of Wine Spectator’s “Grand Award,” the restaurant features over 1,400 American and international wine vintages. Guests who want a casual open-air lunch can linger on TOPPER’s Deck before ambling out to the beach for sunbathing, a little fishing, or a boat trip. The inn’s Spa by the Sea is set within a garden cottage with a chic white interior. The relaxing and effective menu of treatments features therapies using locally-sourced ingredients. ... more less
