Fall in Love Again this Valentine’s Day– Visit Martin House on Nantucket Island!

Valentine’s Day is not about flowers and heart-shaped pendants, chocolates or expensive gifts, but rather it is a day to celebrate love, in all of its iterations.  Love for self, first and foremost.  Romantic love that makes your heart beat faster, love of nature’s daily offerings, love of friends who make you laugh until your belly hurts, love of family that loves you unconditionally, and the innocent devotion of a pet that makes your heart expand in wonder.  Valentine’s Day is about gratitude.  What better place to honor all the love in your heart than at the most romantic inn on Nantucket-the Martin House Inn!  And what better time than February, when the pace of life slows down, the cobblestone streets glisten in the quiet of the early hours, the restaurants are warm and inviting with seasonal offerings, the stores feature unexpected sales that make spirits soar, and you can walk from Steps Beach to Brant Point and see unparalled beauty but not see another human.   In our quiet season, there is opportunity to explore the oceans and paths and trails and to imagine this enchanting island as it was hundreds of years ago.  There is opportunity to step back in time, to a simpler era, to reconnect to yourself, and to whoever you chose to share Valentine’s weekend with.   

Martin House Inn is a short walk to downtown and the ferries.  Restaurants,shops and boutiques are open, and ready to welcome you with their myriad of culinary delights and beautiful treasures.  Come stroll our charming cobblestone streets, hike the many vistas of preserved open land trails, or visit the many beaches to collect winter sea glass and shells, to take home as a romantic reminder of your stay.   You may even choose to:

  •        Rent a Jeep or take a tour or hop on a bus operated by the Nantucket Regional Transit Authority to visit the outskirts of town;
  •        View the beautiful lighthouses that bring ships safely to port;
  •        Sign up for the Nantucket Culinary Cooking Demo + Dinner;
  •        Treat yourself to a yoga class, a restorative massage, a soothing facial or a mani pedi;
  •        Head out to a tour and tastings at Cisco Brewers, Triple Eight Distillery and Nantucket Vineyard, and enjoy some live music while you are there;
  •        Weather permitting, bike out to Bartlett’s Farm – Nantucket’s original source for farm fresh goodness; 
  •        Drop by the historic Whaling Museum.  With over a thousand works of art, artifacts and treasures on display, it tells the Island’s fascinating stories over 4 centuries,
  •        Enjoy a movie at the Dreamland or an evening of laughter at the White Heron, featuring the Nantucket Comedy Festival’s Stand-Up and Learn Program, or both! 

Van Goh could have been speaking of Nantucket when he said, “If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere".  Everything is beautiful when seen through loving eyes.  Look in the mirror, at a loved one, at nature, at life; fall in love again this Valentine’s Day!
