Travel Spotlight

First Look: Greydon House

Some thirty miles out to sea, on what Herman Melville dubbed “an elbow of sand,” the flat, windswept island of Nantucket has weathered a rich and legendary history. Originally home to Wampanoag Indian tribes, the island was settled in 1659 by the British and subsequently became the whaling capital of the world and a global trading post due to its advantageous position in the Atlantic. Today, Nantucket’s storied past is threaded throughout the sandy isle, but perhaps no hotel cherishes this heritage as much – or as stylishly – as the new Greydon House.

Who Should Stay Couples, groups of friends and families with older children who desire a sophisticated, old-world ambiance with a convenient location in town and don’t mind forgoing amenities like a gym, spa and pool. The vibe is decidedly hushed and there are no common spaces, so families with younger children would be happier at the nearby White Elephant or Nantucket Hotel.

How to Get There Nantucket is accessible by direct flights in season from New York, Boston, Washington, DC and Philadelphia and by ferry from Cape Cod, Boston and New York.
