Martin House is Dreaming of Christmas Stroll

At Martin House Inn we celebrate the kick-off to the holiday season with the annual celebration of Christmas Stroll.  This year it is held from December 5th-8th and is sure to get one in the spirit of the season. After all, where else can you holiday shop, sip mulled wine with cookies, hear Dickensian carolers and ride in a horse-drawn carriage? Main Street, of course!

Snap a picture of Brant Point Lighthouse all decked in holiday décor if you arrive on the ferry.  Also, be sure to throw those pennies overboard to ensure a return visit to the island!

While on Main Street you can peruse quaint shops and even participate in a silent art action if you are in the market for a locally inspired gift.  Save your shopping for this event!

Let's not forget the magical trees that line the street the day after Thanksgiving and the crème de la crème 20-foot tree at the top of Main Street decorated by one lucky local artist.
The Festival of Trees at the Whaling Museum is not to be missed with over 80 trees decorated by local businesses.  It's truly a winter wonderland and marshmallow world!

What about Santa, you say?  Well, he doesn't arrive by sleigh in Nantucket.  He arrives by boat at the wharf!  He and Mrs. Claus are welcomed by the Town Crier and children sit on his lap at the Jared Coffin House just down the street. Picture perfect!

So, join Martin House Inn as we ring in the holidays with Christmas Stroll.

 Happy Holidays to you and yours!
