My sister was celebrating her 65th Birthday. She is from Indiana so I decided to take her to Nantucket overnight, ( my husband and I live on Cape Cod). I made reservations in advance and mentioned that it was my sister's B.day. We were picked up at the Steamship Authority, and it all began there. EVERYONE wished my sister a happy B.day, from start to finish. I was notified the day before our arrival that we we're getting a complimentary upgrade. We had a cottage with living room with a fireplace, den, two king bedrooms, two ful baths, kitchen, dining room, washer / dryer, kitchen, dishwasher and deck. I paid for one room. When we went to our cottage there were three beautiful and deletious cupcakes with a B.day note for Deb. On the bed were two pitchers,
(elephants of course) and a box of chocolates, also with a welcome note. After a fantastic dinner on the patio, complimentary Port accompanied the most special B.day cake. I can't tell you everything, or how special they made this trip for my sister and I . I can only finish by saying what a splendid job EVERYONE at The White Elephant did. Thank you for a very special Birthday for my sister. We appreciate everything youmdid for us!
