The White Elephant is ideally located alongside Nantucket's magnificent harbor and just steps from downtown. This island landmark has evolved from an eclectic mix of harbor cottages to one of the finest hotels on Nantucket. With its guest rooms, suites, garden cottages and in-town loft, guests find an unexpected blend of island charm and sophisticated comfort. The hotel is home to the island’s premier steak and seafood restaurant Brant Point Grill — al fresco dining at its best — and the White Elephant Spa, perfect for a late afternoon massage.
