Compass T r av el
Nestled in the crook of Nantucket Harbor, the
Wauwinet Hotel offers an adults-only escape
from the rigorous pace of the workaday world.

Imagine, if you will, a crackling fireplace, enjoyed in the evening
after a day filled with ruddy boat rides with intrepid and informative
local treasure Captain Rob. Or picture being transport via antique
automobile to all the farthest reaches of natural majesty including
breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner ensconced in a restaurant
consistently ranked one of the finest in the world. No, this is not
the picturesque setting of some Dickens-esque New England epic
or pastoral landscape painting. These and more are the amenities
that patrons of the Nantucket Wauwinet Hotel and adjoining
restaurant Topper’s enjoy from summer until late autumn. Featuring
two private beaches, individually decorated rooms and exceptional
service, this child-free location allows distinguished titans of
business and politics to unplug, unwind and uncork. If interested
in accommodations, we suggest you scramble: Rooms are often
booked up to 7 years in advance; Wauwinet.com.
