    The Nantucket Hotel & Resort
    Nantucket, MA
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 978 reviewsTripAdvisor (978)

    Free WiFi
    If you're looking for a family-friendly getaway in Nantucket, consider The Nantucket Hotel & Resort. Recent visitors raved about the amount of kid-friendly amenities offered by the property, as well as the warm, welcoming staff. In addition to supervised day and evening programs for children, the hotel also provides bicycle rentals, two outdoor heated pools (one that's solely reserved for adults) and family portrait sessions from a local photographer (some activities and amenities cost extra). Lodgers reported that the on-site Breeze Restaurant was also kid-appropriate, with a separate menu just for picky eaters. If you'd rather dine off the resort, you'll find a variety of options within walking distance thanks to the hotel's central location in downtown Nantucket, just a half-mile west of Brant Point Lighthouse. The property is also within walking distance of the ferry docks and is less than a mile from Jetties Beach (the hotel offers complimentary NRTA Wave shuttle tickets to the beach). Rooms are equally family-oriented, with some suites accommodating up to 15 guests. Accommodations are equipped with Frette linens, iHome radios, coffee makers, TVs with DVD players and beach towels and chairs. What's more, resort guests are granted access to the Nantucket Club (located on-site), which houses a gym and spa and offers yoga and fitness classes.

    The White Elephant Nantucket Island
    Nantucket, MA
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 495 reviewsTripAdvisor (495)

    The White Elephant has been a favorite of Nantucket's bluebloods since the 1920s. Exactly how ritzy is it? Well, visitors are welcome to dock their yachts out front, and the Brant Point Grill is considered a see-and-be-seen spot. But this local favorite is convenient for tourists too; it's half a mile from downtown Nantucket and an ideal hub for travelers visiting without a car. Guests rave about the first-rate service. And the rooms, suites and small cottages, complete with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and outdoor patios or balconies, receive high praise from families and other large parties. The White Elephant is a seasonal property, open from mid-April to October and for limited dates in November and early December.

    Set on the historic harbor in Nantucket, Massachusetts, The Cottages and Lofts at the Boat Basin beckon to travelers during the spring and summer seasons. Travelers can choose from a variety of accommodations, ranging from studio cottages on the marina to split-level three-bedroom lofts. Several pet-friendly "woof cottages" include perks like pet beds, green spaces and doggie turndown. All lodgings include balconies or patios, full kitchens with Keurig coffee makers and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Other complimentary amenities include bicycles for exploring the town, child-size fishing rods and sand toys, transportation to the ferry and beach (available mid-June to Labor Day), beach chairs, towels, umbrellas and coolers. If you don't feel like cooking in your cottage, you can grab breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Brant Point Grill (less than a mile north of the property) – where hotel guests receive a 15 percent discount. You can also take a complimentary water taxi across the island to dine at the cottage's sister property, TOPPER's at The Wauwinet. Recent guests praised the clean, spacious accommodations and said they were impressed with the staff's attention to detail.

    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 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 late April to the end of October.
