    The Inn at the White Elephant Village opened in June 2012 with 14 suites and six deluxe guest rooms. Located on South Beach Street, in the heart of Nantucket town, the new Inn and existing White Elephant Residences makes up the newly-created White Elephant Village, a natural extension of the award-winning White Elephant hotel that continues to be rated among the top hotels in the world. The Inn is the latest property for Nantucket Island Resorts who owns and manages Nantucket’s most iconic hotels including the Relais and Chateaux Wauwinet, The Cottages and Lofts on the Boat Basin, Jared Coffin House, White Elephant Hotel and the White Elephant Hotel Residences. The group also owns and manages the 240 slip marina – the Nantucket Boat Basin.

    Celebrated Nantucket interior designer Kathleen Hay brings a warm, neutral palette to the Inn, providing a sophisticated and comfortable décor. Reflecting the ambiance of its island location, the Inn features oversized windows, allowing natural sunlight to illuminate the rooms, and quintessential Nantucket wainscoting detail throughout the lobby and corridors. Each of the suites and deluxe guest rooms comes complete with HD flat-screen TVs and miniature refrigerators as well as linens by Pratesi, plush Turkish towels, bathrobes, and cosy slippers. Ideal for families, the 14 suites offers sofa beds to accommodate couples travelling with children and four of the suites features fireplaces.

    As part of the expansion, the Village has its own lobby, including reception area, concierge, fireplace, gift shop, and business centre. The lobby serves morning coffee, pastries, all-day snacks, and late-afternoon port and cheese – creating a natural hub for guests. Guests of the White Elephant Village may enjoy exclusive use of the Village’s heated pool and cabanas, fitness centre, and complimentary bicycles.

    Managing Director of Nantucket Island Resorts Khaled Hashem sees this expansion as a positive sign that tourism in Nantucket is continuing to grow. “We are excited with the addition of the Inn that will further enable us to host families and groups in the award winning accommodations these travellers expect from the White Elephant.”
