Just Opened Getaways: The Wauwinet

In the world of food and travel, a new season is the perfect time to breathe new life into restaurants and hotels – especially in the spring. As the sun appears and New Yorkers come out to play, we can’t help but wonder about our next mini vacation.

With a laid-back beachy atmosphere, a beautiful coastline for prime sunset-watching, and charming white cottages all around, it’s easy to see why the tiny Cape Cod island of Nantucket is a popular travel destination. Not a single bad restaurant in sight, just top chefs serving seasonal produce and fresh seafood, while chain stores make way for unique boutiques – we could easily spend spring and summer here.


Located on the northeast shores of Nantucket, hotel The Wauwinet is now accepting bookings for their season opening on April 19. Offering sunny rooms, suites and homely cottages with views of gardens or the sea, the country home is both luxurious and quaint at the same time. After waking up to morning coffee and fresh pastries, you can hop on a mountain bike, use the tennis courts or enjoy harbor cruises – all organized for you by the hotel’s very own concierge. Don’t worry – you can also lounge on the beach or rejuvenate in the spa if you prefer.


Whichever activity you decide to do, make sure to finish your day in style at the award winning restaurant TOPPER’S, serving seasonal inspired cuisine with local produce and seafood. Take in the view, try the oysters and thank us later.
