Packages, Romance, ElopementsEloping to Nantucket is dreamy.  There is nothing like making simple memories of you and the one you love.  Staying at a charming Nantucket bed and breakfast adds to the unique experience.  You can re-visit your passion years later as many continue to do. You and your loved one can elope to any special spot whether on a beach sharing a bonding moment, or the place where love began. We host elopements and engagements. In fact, 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. Make memories of a lifetime.
