Hotel Overview


Nantucket Island, 30 miles south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts- and right on the waterfront (of course).

Rooms at White Elephant

Choose from guest rooms, suites, garden cottages and downtown lofts, many of which have decks and wonderful views over the harbour. The light and airy rooms have king-sized beds, bathrooms with aromatherapy products and fireplaces perfect for chilly evenings. During sunny days, take advantage of the beach chairs and beach towels.

Food and Facilities

Brant Point Grill makes the most of ingredients that are (literally) on the doorstep, including, of course, seafood, in its classic New England dishes, alongside an award-winning wine cellar. The Sunday brunch is a must, while every day you can enjoy morning coffee and pastries and afternoon port and cheese.

Activities at White Elephant

Take a dip in the pool and enjoy the poolside cabanas, indulge in the spa or relax on the harbourside lawn and watch the boats in the harbour. The hotel is minutes away from eclectic boutiques and art galleries, as well as museums and stunning beaches. Walk to Brant Point lighthouse, chill out on the beach or go on a cruise on your own private yacht- just ask the pre-arrival concierge for details.
