Residential-style luxury in Nantucket

Near Nantucket's famed White Elephant resort sits the White Elephant Village, a Nantucket Island Resorts property. It consists of two areas of accommodations — a 20-room inn and 25 one-, two- and three-bedroom residences — nestled on a quiet block minutes from Nantucket Town. White Elephant Village is the most sophisticated of family-friendly destinations, with thoroughly modern, beach-inspired guest rooms designed by Kathleen Hay and Alexandra Champalimaud, along with every crib, stroller and bottle warmer parents may need. Each of the complex’s seven buildings is in immaculate shape, having just opened between 2009 (the residences) and 2012 (the inn).

The alluring amenities here were created with both discerning adults and curious children in mind. You’ll appreciate the “early riser” spread in the inn’s airy lobby each morning; the coffee, espresso, tea and pastries are best enjoyed on the inn’s front porch. In the residences, whip up your own breakfast — your kitchen is stocked with (among other perks) a Sub-Zero refrigerator, toaster, panini press and coffeemaker. Don’t miss taking the kids to White Elephant Village’s private pool; arrive early to grab a cabana and wait for the complimentary snacks that circulate regularly.

At the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, you’ll feel pampered with every top-of-the-line touch, from Pratesi linens to Bose stereos complete with CD collections. It’s the sort of place you wouldn’t want to leave — if not for the pleasures of Nantucket’s waters, beaches, restaurants and shops just outside your door.
