Best of Boston

2005 Best Inn, Nantucket

La Ruche Inn

La Ruche Inn’s eight whitewashed bedrooms, accented with natural sisal rugs and massive antique dressers, make for a heavenly seaside sanctuary. Owners Arthur and Lisa Holstein reopened this 1700s Greek revival mansion two years ago, and now the peony-lined backyard is filled with bicycles and lounge chairs aplenty. It’s the perfect setting for the daily outdoor breakfast of fresh pastries and seasonal fruit.
