Customer service was great. Great location. Concierge was very helpful. Close to the beach and town They pick you up at the ferry and also drop off. They have a car that will drop you around the town or drop you off at a beach

Great location, quiet, friendly staff. Small kitchen available so breakfast was easier. I would recommend renting a car if you want to go to other parts of the island as it is not walkable. Beaches are awesome.More

About
Description
The White Elephant has been an exclusive summertime retreat since the 1920s. The height of preppy New England elegance, this is the place where brides dream of being married and families come for generations. A ...More stone's throw from the center of town, this 64-room island treasure has accommodations ranging from garden cottages to suites on the harbor. The hotel's mascot, a white elephant named Trunket, presides over its greener than green lawn. Set with plush lounge chairs, it overlooks bustling Nantucket Harbor and calm Children's Beach. Brant Point Grill serves up a famed Sunday brunch, with their signature Lobster Bloody Mary. Less

Kristen R
Hi! My husband and I are looking for a "babymoon" getaway for sometime late spring. We are unable to visit in the summer due to his business being the busiest in the summer months, so my first question is, how is the weather in April/May? We are coming from southern New Jersey, and it appears through looking through temp averages that it can still tend to be a bit chillier up there, even late spring. Also, has anyone traveled here pregnant? I'm bummed that I can't partake in the wine, and am drooling over the afternoon port and cheese (though soft cheeses are also out when with-child, boo!). How are the restaurants and other activities in the area? Basically, we are foodies who love a top-notch hotel, looking for a romantic getaway within a reasonable distance, and we have never done Nantucket. The White Elephant comes highly recommended from some of our friends. Thoughts welcome!
