A Charming & Historic Nantucket Landmark

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 lodging. The hotel consists of 53 chic, light-filled guest rooms and suites, most with working fireplaces and harbor views, and 11 garden cottages. All guests enjoy full access to the Library, fitness room, business lounge, and harborside lawn.
