White Elephant Village enjoys a prime and peaceful location on the island of Nantucket, which is a one- or two-hour ferry ride or 20-minute flight from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Once you arrive, you’ll find White Elephant Village nestled on 19 North Water Street, a largely residential spot just blocks from sister hotel White Elephant. It’s also a five-minute walk from downtown Nantucket’s cobblestone streets, lively wharfs and public beaches — and the stroll is a lovely one, with historic houses and hydrangeas lining the way. Rather not walk? The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s chauffeur is happy to whisk you to your destination in a BMW courtesy car. And if you like the sound of that, you may want to book one of White Elephant Village’s three-bedroom residences; they come with the use of a BMW X5 sports activity vehicle for tooling around Nantucket in style. Guests at White Elephant Village also have access to complimentary bicycles and a regularly scheduled shuttle to the island’s high-speed ferry dock, giving you plenty of options for getting where you need to go — which, thanks to the Nantucket hotel’s superb location, is never very far away.
