if you have the means (or come across a sale like my girlfriend did) that you can apply to this Inn, do it. You will be pampered, catered to and waited on like never before.
Out back of the inn, the side that faces the ocean, is about 50 chaise lounges for you to relax on in the sun and just stare at the Nantucket Bay. It is really one of the most relaxing and gorgeous places I've stayed, and I'm saying this even though it rained the whole weekend. The room was gorgeous, the "wine and port" spread every afternoon was a nice way to meet guests, the grounds were gorgeous and very well maintained, there's a bay for kayaking on one side, and across the street, access to the Atlantic Ocean and a private beach. The van takes the 8 mile ride into town every hour and picks you back up at a designated space every hour on the half hour, so you can go into town for a long or as short a time as you wish.
If you go any time during the regular season and work for a living like I do, it will cost you dearly. However, if you are a fantastic shopper like my girlfriend and find deals like no one else, see if you can find a midweek stay here. You will NOT regret it.
