Spotlight on the Charming Island of Nantucket, Massachusetts

From Boston, it's about a four-hour car and ferry ride trip to the island of Nantucket—known for delivering a quintessential, all-American experience for visitors in search of New England fun in the sun. Inspirato offers a wide selection of charming homes and cottages scattered across the island, each with access to the best of Nantucket’s seaside town charm. Below, we’ve highlighted why Nantucket is a great destination to visit with Inspirato.

Beaches and Lighthouses


Nantucket is lined with beaches for just about anyone—whether you’re looking to relax and soak your toes in North Shore Beach’s gentler waves or catch bigger surf at Cisco Beach. Originally built as navigation tools for sailors, Nantucket's three lighthouses each boast their own distinctive appearance and individual history. Visit Great Point Lighthouse, the most powerful light in New England, by taking a sandy, seven-mile hike or embarking on a guided tour in a four-wheel-drive van.  


Fishing, Boating, and Water Sports


Make a splash with boating, fishing, whale watching, sailing, and more as you take advantage of Nantucket’s pristine waters. Seek out different fishing and boating charters or dip your toes into the more active side of water leisure as you try out wakeboarding, surfing, and kiteboarding. A home base to all water enthusiasts, there are plenty of spots to gather your fishing and boating supplies on the island.


The Chic, Yet Small-Town Feel


The cobblestone streets of Nantucket are lined with mom-and-pop-shops, boutique clothing, bookstores, and steepled churches. You’ll find visitors and natives cycling through bike paths, sun-kissed families sampling fudge on Main Street, and groups of people embarking on different historical tours, including the famous Whaling Museum. Whether you’re enjoying fine dining at TOPPER’s Restaurant or picking up grab-and-go snacks for the beach at The Corner Table, upscale or casual dining options are always within a few steps of reach.


Inspirato Perks


Four of our homes are walking distance from Nantucket Historic District, where you can easily explore quaint shops and restaurants. Hidden Harbor and Mainsail are seven- and eight-bedroom homes with private pool, hot tubs, separate guesthouses, and room for 16-18 guests, offering the ultimate vacation with your family or group of friends. At Harborview Nantucket, we offer 10 charming cottage accommodations set on a private beach overlooking the harbor, where you can go on a short stroll to visit the town center.

If you partner with Inspirato to lease your vacation home in Nantucket, there are numerous perks for you including fixed rental income (regardless of bookings), vetted Inspirato guests, a dedicated team to handle property management, flexible owner use, and Inspirato travel benefits.
