Set along the northeast point of Nantucket, just 30 miles off the coast of Massachusetts, our inn offers visitors the opportunity to explore sprawling beaches, sail through coastal swells on a chartered boat, cast a line into the bay waters from the pier or capture breathtaking photos of Great Point. Neighboring Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge provides a backdrop of beautiful surroundings, while two private beaches give guests access to the ocean and the calming waters of Nantucket Bay. Relax in a chaise lounge with a good book, explore Nantucket in our 1948 Chevy Fleetmaster station wagon, or shop the local boutiques and antique stores of Nantucket Town. The island offers a variety of recreational activities from kayaking to sailing, surfing, biking, golfing, bird watching and surfcasting.
Regular ferry service is available from Hyannis, Massachusetts. Wauwinet guests enjoy a regularly scheduled shuttle service to and from the Hy-Line Ferry, as well as complimentary mountain bikes for island excursions, and sailboats and kayaks for exploring Nantucket Bay. The Wauwinet Lady runs from late June through mid-September, and departs from the White Elephant dock. Van service is also available from the White Elephant. Reservations required.
