A Quiet Paradise
Reviewed 4 days ago

Staying at the Wauwinet on Nantucket allows one to refresh, revive and rest. The hotel is located far from the bustle of Main Street providing the guest with a relaxing getaway. There are several opportnities to engage in active activities, if desired, or simply gaze ver your book on the speactacuar lawn.

Way overpriced!
Reviewed 4 days ago

I had a mushroom risotto for an appetizer. The serving size was 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup for $30.00. My main course was the duck breast for $48.00 which consisted of two slices of duck about 3/4” thick and served with a steak knife. Yes, the dinner was good, though skimpy. The room was lovely. Service was extremely slow. I love fine dining, but this wasn’t worth it.

Complete Bliss

I will begin by saying that a friend from the Boston area, familiar with Nantucket, thought that my choice to stay “on the quiet end of the island” was not wise. She could not have been more mistaken! This was our inaugural trip to Nantucket and The Wauwinet Inn and staff have convinced me that it will not be our last. The Inn’s driver met us at the dock and transported us to a storybook setting! We were greeted with bubbly at the check-in desk and escorted to a beautiful room with a view of Nantucket Sound. We didn’t rent a car and it proved not to be necessary as the inn shuttle runs all day back and forth to town. We could be part of the hustle and bustle if we wanted to be but could retreat to our own (mostly private) sanctuary, where they knew our names, when we wanted tranquility. Captain Rob led highly informative (and complimentary) tours on and and sea and James, who has worked at the Inn for the past 27 years educated us on it’s history. Highly recommend The Wauwinet Inn if you want to visit Nantucket❤️.

Still wonderful

It’s been a few years since we have stayed at Wauwinet. Everything is as lovely as it ever was. The location is remote but we love that. The quiet is heavenly compared to the noise in Town. The lawn where you sit and gaze at the water is beyond relaxing while bunnies and robins are your only companions. Our room was small and not adequate seating for two people. Bed was very comfortable. Staff is helpful and friendly. A special shout out to James who has been there over 20years. He is a treasure. A few things have changed but overall still top of the line.

Too far from the rest of the hustle and bustle, but lovely retreat
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This hotel is just a wonderful, cosy, quiet place to retreat and enjoy a world of relaxation. Very comfortable rooms, warm and kind service, delicious food. Would come back from a couple of days of quiet time, but if you are here, you need a car to visit, come and go, enjoy the island's lovely town which seems quite a bit away from the Wauwinet.
