Packages, Romance, ElopementsENGAGEMENTS

Best place to build memories is Nantucket Island. We host special events such as engagements, elopements, honeymoon, anniversaries. In fact over the years several guests have gotten engaged, spent their honeymoon, and then return on their 10th and 25th year anniversary to the same spot, building memories and traditions that are unique.  Some eloped, only to return many years later seeking to re-invent themselves. This is the perfect place to simply elope, for your intimate perfect celebration, the perfect spot to get away.  Please contact us as soon as you begin your planning so we can set aside time for your special affair. Stay at our bed and breakfast, and return year after year.
