White Elephant

White Elephant has been considered a Nantucket landmark since the 1920s – and rightly so. Perched alongside a glamourous harbour, what began as an eclectic mix of cottages has now become the quintessential Nantucket Inn and the perfect base for an island escape. Honouring a laid-back elegance that exudes carefree luxury, step one foot into White Elephant and feel immediately at ease.


Location, location, location. You really can’t get much better than this. In prime position, the White Elephant overlooks Nantucket’s famous harbour. Enjoy the views from the pretty green harbourside lawns, peppered with white garden furniture and sun loungers. But be sure to tread the cobbled streets of downtown Nantucket too and check out the boutiques and galleries before holing up on one of the many sweeping beaches. For a bit more action, drive across the sandy beaches to Great Point or Smith’s Point for a spectacular look out over the Atlantic or Madaket Harbour.

Your room

This luxury hotel has ‘chic’ down to a tee. The light-filled guest rooms and suites ooze a certain Nantucket island charm and understated elegance. Basking in sandy, subdued tones, shards of sun light flood through shuttered windows into your room whilst nautical touches ooze nautical charm. It’s clean, crisp and coastal fresh. Our favourite bit though? In the evenings, there’s a traditional crackling open fire for you to relax in front of after a long day at the beach. There’s nothing quite like it.

Why we like it

Simplicity is the name of the game here. Add to that a level of comfort and attentive service that’s a way of (island) life and it’s easy to see exactly why we love it. So, for those looking to escape the every day and discover a casual sense of freedom – the White Elephant is an obvious next stop.
