I'm writing a review because I had an amazing stay there last summer and plan to go back... and just read some of the negative reviews that stunned me. This is a beautiful property and amazing hotel and restaurant. I took 100 pictures at the hotel alone... all postcards. That said, yes, it is remote--which IS a plus for many people. Any you are on both the harbor beach AND the Ocean beach. The hotel shuttle takes you in to town whenever you want, but it's 15 minutes away. It's an amazing place to relax, but the rooms are more B&B than a Four Seasons Suite. We had a cottage in the back that had it's own entrance and porch. Rooms where nice, but a bit small. Most rooms in Nantucket are smallish. The weather on Nantucket will definitely impact your stay... this is true with any vacation spot. The town of Nantucket is a slice of history and a snapshot of yesteryear--that is why you go. The Wauwinet is first-class living in that era. So, you know what to expect if you have been to Nantucket. Our cottage room was over $1000 per night, but you are paying for the property more than the room itself. Also, there is a boat that takes people to and from the Wauwinet and town that was AMAZING for a sunset cruise to dinner. I suppose this place is not for everyone, but if you like what you hear about Nantucket--this place is amazing. I rate this place highly on service--they took care of everything and location--remote, but amazing. Rooms are smallish, so do your homework on the size if your room before you reserve. My only lower mark was value... It's hard to call anything a "value" at $1000 per night... but we would save up to go back sometime. Nantucket is like leaving the country and the Wauwinet is no different. If you can't stay there--be sure to eat a lunch outside or dinner inside at Toppers, it's 5 star.
