Wauwinet enjoys a privileged location, far away from town, facing the bay. Though the rooms are not large, they are charming and the staff are friendly and attentive.

Great beach, lovely views. Like some beaches the current and rip need to be watched closely if you plan to go in the water

Bunnies, came out to eat grass on the lawn. I did not find this place stuffy at all, we actually overdressed, Jackets are not required (?) welcome to the beach. Everyone was nice. Raspberry cosmopolitan was perfect. I had the organic greens, delicious and enough for me. Hubby had the chowder and swordfish. All good. Enjoyed the quiet, outdoor setting... More

Rent a jeep (only way to get there), drive out (about 45-60 minutes) and be prepared to fall in love with they precious natural place/experience in Nantucket. This is essential Nantucket, away from all the touristy dopes who just go to Edgartown and shop on their Nantucket vacation. Bring bug spray; if the wind is lulled, weirdly, the skilled buggers...

Gateway to the Coskata Coatue Wildlife Refuge, the most beautiful and desolate north tip of the island. After going to see the Great Point Light, stop at the Wauwinet Hotel for a drink, lunch, dinner or overnight. IMHO best part of the island for peace and calm.

We saw baby gulls with their moms -- Osprey nesting, seals at play, crabs of many sizes running sideways - all among the dunes with windswept trees and bushes of beach rose. It was... More

If you want to be pampered and have old world charm, this is the place! Plenty of room to spread out on a lounge chair by the bay or take a walk on the beach. Let the staff pack you a picnic! Don't miss out on the lemon ricotta pancakes for breakfast!
