How it Ranks: The Wauwinet ranks #1 out of nine Nantucket Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.
Our Take: Popular with honeymooners, The Wauwinet sits in a quieter northern corner of Nantucket island, just less than a mile from the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge. Here, you can stretch out your sea legs on one of two private beaches or sample the local seafood at the ever-popular TOPPER's restaurant. The attentive service staff deserves a mention as well: Everyone, from the reservations assistants to the cleaning staff, receives high praise from recent guests. The concierge even makes pre-vacation planning phone calls. The luxurious rooms and cottages, adorned with soothing yellow tones, wooden furnishings, lavish bath products, and plush 400-thread-cound Pratesi linens also leave guests vying for more time at this romantic retreat. Because The Wauwinet is a member of the Relais & Châteaux family, Club 5C members can earn or redeem points here for additional benefits. Keep in mind: The Wauwinet is a seasonal property, open from mid-May to October.
