My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Wauwinet. It was the perfect romantic vacation. The grounds are absolutely lovely, and have many different features in a small space. There are semi private beaches on either side of the hotel - one facing the bay, the other facing the Atlantic. The two beaches have a very different feel, and it was great to alternate between them. Both beaches were nearly empty, despite the fact that we visited at near peak times. We had one of the least expensive rooms on the property -- a cottage room -- and it was fantastic. The cottage was in a lush, shady garden, and we had our own patio. The restaurant on the property is very expensive (like all the high-end Nantucket restaurants) but is fantastic. The staff are polite and helpful, and happy to provide anything you need. The hotel is 20 minutes from town, but the hotel has complimentary bikes and regular shuttle service. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
