The White Elephant, located alongside Nantucket's magnificent harbor, has been considered an island landmark since the 1920's. What began as an eclectic mix of cottages has evolved into a premier Nantucket hotel that offers an unexpected blend of island charm and sophisticated amenities that is perfect for Nantucket, Massachusetts lodging.

The White Elephant sits serenely on the waterfront, yet is only minutes from the unique boutiques and art galleries, mouth-watering restaurants, and fascinating museums for which the island is known. The hotel consists of 53 chic, light-filled guest rooms and suites, most with working fireplaces and harbor views, and 11 garden cottages and our signature loft. All guests enjoy full access to the Library, fitness room, business lounge, and harborside lawn.

At the White Elephant, guests are treated to a rare blend of luxury and ease that is the hallmark of this waterfront hotel. Our exceptional level of personal attention ensures flawless service from the moment you arrive and continues uninterrupted until your departure. Add to this superior service a myriad of comforts found in nearly every corner of the hotel. The Library with its overstuffed chairs and plush sofa is ideal for enjoying a glass of port in the afternoon or relaxing by the fire in the evening.

The Harborside Lawn, with its soft, white wicker furniture, offers the perfect setting for sipping a cool glass of lemonade. From the soft furnishings and organic linen with hand stitching and embroidery in the guest rooms, to the rich walnut furnishings of the lobby, the White Elephant radiates island grace and ease of living.
