March, toward Spring!

March 2021 has arrived and here on Nantucket, it definitely came in as a lion!  The wind chill was 1 degree with wind gusts reported at 70 mph in Madaket!!  But with March comes the delicious knowledge that SPRING is just around the corner.    And we can think of no better place to be than here on Nantucket.   So why not begin thinking about a “Spring Fling” getaway or summer vacation? 

When was the last time you pampered yourself, planned or enjoyed a getaway or a sweet respite?  As the days lengthen, crocuses peek through the soil and the air grows incrementally warmer, the feeling that our world is reopening sends a message of hope and connection.  Now, as the vaccine rolls out and travel restrictions ease, is the time to plan your next great adventure.  And for now, the most trusted travel is in our own beautiful country, which you can explore with no possibility of getting stuck out of the country.  So plan a vacation to someplace you have read about, someplace you may have visited and had hoped to again, someplace you can drive to (with the help of a ferry or a puddle-jumper), someplace revered for its timeless beauty, its wealth of culture, its pristine beaches and world-renowned cuisine.  Come to Nantucket - Voted #2 of 50 Best Coastal Towns in the United States! Come to the Martin House Inn! 

The Martin House Inn combines the charm and romance of a bygone era with all the comforts of home. It also offers plenty of room for social distancing- in our serenity gardens, our spacious veranda, our lofty roof walk with panoramic views of the harbor and town, our comfortable gathering areas.  Our spacious accommodations blend the convenience and comforts of today with the romance and nostalgia of the past.  We offer 13 room choices. See a sampling below:

Located on our first floor, ROOM 1 is a lovely room with loads of light, a stunning, full-sized antique pillow top canopy bed, and private shower bath. 

Travelling with a larger group, or simply want your own private living area?  ROOM 2 is a richly decorated 2-room suite with a queen poster bed, that sleeps up to 4. Its spacious living room with large gas-remote fireplace, sleeper loveseat, flat screen TV with DVD, and board games provides you the comforts of home.  What's not to love?

Venture to our 2nd floor for our most romantic room (ROOM 21) , which features a queen canopy bed, a large fireplace, and a large bathroom with both a tub and shower.  Imagine, grabbing one of the sumptuous afternoon snacks we provide, and your favorite beverage (from your own private mini-fridge) as you return from your day of adventures, to enjoy in the warm, sultry breezes on your own private porch that overlooks our Serenity garden.  What better way to unwind!


There are many more rooms to choose from, depending on your preferences, and we invite you to visit our website to view them all. 

What to expect when you arrive?  Camelot style weather, where air conditioning exists but is not really necessary.  Gentle ocean breezes, windswept beaches, sand dunes, blinking lighthouses, cobbled streets, rose covered cottages and a charming pace of life await you on this 50-square mile island, 27 miles out to sea.  Formerly,  the world's top whaling port, the Town of Nantucket is now designated a National Historic District, and the Martin House Inn is in the heart of the historic district- a sea captain’s mansion built in 1803 and the most romantic inn on island.  And although Nantucket is often dubbed a haven for the rich and famous, it is surprisingly affordable and the ambiance down-to-earth.  Leave your make-up and your high heels at home and revel in comfortable shoes and the natural beauty that derives from sunshine and relaxation.  People dress casually when they are on island, spending days exploring the island’s beaches and trails, its historic district and theatres and one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants. 


There are many activities to choose from on Nantucket.  We promise, you will never be bored.  Visit our 3 world-renowned lighthouses, take a fishing charter or plan a sailing adventure! Rainy day? Not to worry, we have over 6 museums in-season featuring Nantucket’s history of whaling, shipwrecks, and beautiful lightship baskets, to name a few.  Additionally, there are a myriad of tours available to you.  Bike, Walkabout, Architectural tours, theatre – and whale & seal tours with Shearwater Excursions.  Hoping to enjoy the nightlife?  Visit Nantucket’s CISCO brewery, The Chicken Box and the Muse on the outskirts of town offer live bands.  The Rose & Crown, located within walking distance to the Inn offers live bands and karaoke contests.  What’s not to love?
