THE WAUWINET is situated in between the Atlantic Ocean and Nantucket Bay, The Wauwinet is the island's only Relais & Châteaux hotel. An adults-only escape, it is the stuff of storybook romance. Its grounds are beautifully landscaped, with unmatched views and access to two beaches - one on the ocean and one on the bay. The 33-room inn is a study in luxe comfort, from Pratesi linens to antique furnishings and private sundecks. TOPPER'S, its New American cuisine restaurant, is consistently ranked one of the top in New England. A continual recipient of Wine Spectator's "Grand Award," the restaurant features over 1,400 American and international wine vintages. Guests who want a casual open-air lunch can linger on TOPPER's Deck before ambling out to the beach for sunbathing, a little fishing, or a boat trip. The relaxing and effective menu of treatments features therapies using locally-sourced ingredients.

Always a treat to dine here before sunset. Great cocktails on the lawn, and then a lovely dinner at Toppers. Great presentation and interesting combination of ingredients- no matter what one orders. Friendly service in a professional manner.

Lovely and relaxing. Wonderful stay that allows you to relax and enjoy the island. The staff is so accommodating and willing to do so much for the guests. I enjoyed the quietness and charm. The only thing would be nice is that I wish more people could enjoy the inn.

This was the first trip to Nantucket by my wife and myself. We wanted to stay in different parts of the island to get a better feel of the island. We're glad one of those places was The Wauwinet in the northeast part of the island. The front desk staff and concierge were very

Are dogs allowed?
No, dogs are not allowed at this property. Their sister property, "The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin" does permit pets. Great place for them too - very welcoming with special treats for your extended family.
