Renew Your Senses in Nantucket

On a recent windy morning newly planted in Nantucket, I happened upon a beach full of perfect unbroken shells. They were a mirage of pink, lavender, and blue and my eyes could not be diverted from this endless blanket of layer upon layer of cool color.  I was completely in awe of the backdrop of turquoise water and the crisp sun rising over the horizon.  

All I could think about in that moment was that this experience every day could renew my spirit and bring me endless peace.  

Yet it seems inevitable that the initial awe we feel in seeing something inspiring loses its luster over time if we see it continuously, often dulling our senses.  Is this why we keep seeking and exploring?  Must we strive to find solace in the road less traveled? 

I can only say that for myself and many of the guests I've met here at Martin House, that Nantucket is a destination that so many return to for that very personal renewal of spirit and in the joy of the simple pleasures that only this island can offer.  Summer is right around the corner....come experience serenity again with us.

A Thyme for Spring at Martin House Inn

"Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark."
~R. Tagore

Time for Thyme!

Spring has arrived with a renewal of self and rebirth in the effortless joys that nature offers. Can you feel that change in the air?  It's happening all around us here on Nantucket. Workmen are busy getting the town ready while the daffodils are breaking through the soil's frozen surface just in time for Daffodil Festival April 26-28th.  We only have a few rooms left so call for availability. We hope to see you there in full bloom!  

 With this season now gloriously upon us, we borrow the winsome words of Susan Branch. 

"This is my wish upon you all - that your days be filled with good things; the inspiration granted to you in the colors of a rainbow, the sweet fragrance of a wild apple tree, the comforting warmth of the sun, the hopeful imagery of a hummingbird, the wondrous luminosity of the moon and stars, the aroma of something baking in the oven, the music within a gentle breeze, the closing of old chapters and the beginning of new ones, and some quiet moments to yourself by which you might contemplate all these things."

This spring, Martin House Inn is reborn and wonderful new 
chapters are now being written as we, your new innkeepers, continue our quest to meet more and more guests and offer your most memorable Nantucket experience.  We
 leave you with the romantic coastal beauty of our crashing surf.
