U.S. News Review

Popular with honeymooners, The Wauwinet sits in a quieter northern corner of Nantucket island, less than 2 miles 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, outfitted in soothing yellow tones with wooden furnishings, free Wi-Fi access and 400-thread-count Pratesi linens leave guests vying for more time at this romantic retreat. Also included in your room rate: coffee and pastries in the morning and evening port and cheese. 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.
