1. Explore Nantucket on a Bike Built for Two
Our Discover Nantucket Package offers you the opportunity to engulf yourself with the essence of Nantucket Island. Spend a day exploring the Island on a tandem bike (two standard bikes optional). Cycle along the multitude of bike paths while enjoying the sea breezes on your face. Then dedicate another day to take in the historic sites included with your two All Access Passes from the Nantucket Historical Association, starting with the fascinating Whaling Museum. Plus you’ll get your own copy of Moby Dick to enjoy on our veranda, while you relax at the beach or after you get home to help you remember your fantastic vacation. Just add $125 to your room reservation!
2. Indulge with Sweets, Treats & Eats
Our Romantic Evening of Culinary Delight Package welcomes you to your comfortable room with a bottle of Chandon Brut 750ml Sparkling Wine, chilled in an authentic Nantucket Basket. Then stroll hand-in-hand along the cobblestone streets to one of the Island’s finest restaurants (we’re happy to recommend some) with your $100 voucher for dinner. After your fantastic meal, come back to your cozy guest room to enjoy a selection of decadent truffles from Nantucket’s finest Chocolatier. Add $175 to your reservation to enjoy this thoughtful package.
3. Enjoy Picnics and Fine Dining on the Sand
After your freshly prepared breakfast buffet at Century House Inn, spend a picture-perfect day exploring the S’conset coast. Tour the grounds of Sankaty Head Light, or check their schedule to plan ahead for a climb to the top. Then relax on the beach while you enjoy a delicious picnic lunch from Provisions or Something Natural. If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can rent a Jeep and make your way out to Great Point where you can drive right on the beach for a more secluded escape. After a quick rest back at the inn, you must experience the most romantic sunset dinner right on the sand at Galley Beach Restaurant. Their setting is as ideal as it gets, and their menu is rated by Zagat as “Extraordinary to Perfection.”
4. Set Sail for a Romantic Excursion
See the Island and from the other side with a private sail on a romantic sloop. Endeavor Sailing will let you help the crew, or allow you to completely relax as you sail past the beautiful coastline and spot sea creatures. For a more romantic setting, schedule a sunset cruise; you’ll feel like the sky is putting on a show just for the two of you. This is truly a memorable experience that is authentically “Nantucket.”
