Best of Boston

2012 Best Resort Hotel, Nantucket

The Wauwinet

This is the place to truly get away from it all. Located on the idyllic (and blissfully quiet) northern side of Nantucket, here you can indulge in an Atlantic seaweed wrap or wildflower-and-herb-infusedmassage at the spa, get refined with port and cheese in the library, explore the quaint town of ‘Sconset on bikes, or simply relax on the hotel’s private beaches. And if you’re for some reason missing the crush of day-tripping tourists, you can hop the complimentary water taxi to downtown Nantucket.
