I can’t think of any better way to travel to Nantucket than staying in a Nantucket rental home. The more members there are in your party, the better it is to stay in a Nantucket rental homr. Follow this link to see an example of a fabulous Nantucket rental home that exudes ultra Nantucket charm: http://www.nantucketlilypad.com.
There are many reasons why renting a house is better than staying in a hotel or inn. Having your own kitchen is one of the best features of a Nantucket rental home.
Always look for a Nantucket rental home with comfortable outdoor seating. Looking for shooting stars from the porch at night is a fun, outdoor activity .
Spacious outdoor seating is great when you’re trying to plan your day.
A fancy kitchen makes your stay on Nantucket feel more luxurious. Pick up some fresh halibut or swordfish at Glidden’s Island Seafood or East Coast Seafood. Visiting Bartlett’s Farm is a must if you want fresh vegetables
When foods like these are sourced locally, they need just the smallest amounts of seasonings to taste wonderful. Add a pinch of salt and chopped rosemary and parsley. Light the grill and you’ll feel like you’re eating in a gourmet restaurant.
If you like the beach, than you will certainly enjoy a stint in a Nantucket rental home. The north shore options like Jetties, Steps, or Dionis are flat calm bodies of water that feel like a swimming pool. The waves are gentle and safe.
South shore beaches like Nobadeer and Sconset are fun if you like a wild surf.
There are a few key places you’ll want to make sure you check out while you’re on island. Some all-time favorite, swanky restaurants that are not to be missed include:
The Galley: This is Nantucket doing chic and it has a terrific water view. Wear you favorite summer dress and get there in time for a sunset cocktail.
The Brant Point Grill: This restaurant has a wonderful outdoor dining deck with views of the harbor. The atmosphere is upscale and gourmet. If you like wine, this is a great spot—plus they sometimes have live music in the bar.
Company of the Cauldron: This old-school, in-town restaurant is cozy and romantic and often features a harp player in the atmospheric dining room. Be sure to call in advance, as their menu changes nightly.
LoLa 41: This spot is for the young at heart and promises delicious LoLa burgers and Asian-fusion type dinners, plus sushi.
The Ship’s Inn: Located in an historic whaling captain’s mansion built in 1831, the dining room and lounge are below street level and have an updated colonial atmosphere. Tall windows along two walls let in the summer breezes and let escape the sounds of happy conversation. This restaurant is a good choice for an evening out with friends, or a cozy, romantic encounter.
