Winter is the perfect time to plan a romantic getaway to Nantucket. The island is an ideal and idyllic escape for couples or partners looking to relax and spend some quality time with one another for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
Nantucket is the ultimate destination to fully unplug, enjoy the cobblestone streets, stroll the island’s empty yet stunning beaches and pay a visit to the many businesses open year-round. With daily flights on Cape Air and ferries running from/to Hyannis multiple times a day, the island is easily accessible yet peacefully quiet and exceptionally affordable.
Hotel Pippa is the perfect home base for those looking to linger on the island for a few days and enjoy some much-needed relaxation. There are also countless local activities to explore during the off-season: visiting Bartlett’s Farm, Nantucket’s largest and oldest family-owned farm, for its exceptional on-site vegetable and fruit market, or spending time at Nantucket’s very own Cisco Brewers to listen to live music and taste the latest seasonal brews.
For the most adventurous couples, driving tours are available to discover the island’s famed lighthouses, windmill and beaches. Head out to Cisco Beach for a stroll after a snowfall as the paths resemble a white carpet and the landscape is absolutely stunning. Visit nearby Siasconset (or as the locals call it ‘Sconset), one of the most charming places on island with beautiful cottages, large mansions and winding roads. No trip to ACK is complete without a visit to the Brant Point Lighthouse, one of the four Nantucket attractions on the National Register of Historic Places. Admire the stunning panoramic views and beautiful private homes from the top of Steps Beach and take a walk on the empty beach (if the temperatures allow) to find shells.
As you make your way downtown, enjoy a romantic stroll through the inviting cobblestone streets of Nantucket and explore Main Street through the quaint yet stylish shops that remain open year-round. You can scour Mitchell’s Book Corner and Nantucket Bookworks for books to read up in your warm, comfortable suite at Hotel Pippa. Cozy up by the windows with a good book, cup of tea or warm cocoa. If you want another dose of culture but prefer to stay inside, the Dreamland Theatre offers movies, plays or shows/concerts year-round.
For those looking to plan a getaway when winter transitions into spring, it is never too early to book your stay at Hotel Pippa for Daffodil Weekend. By reserving now, guests will secure the best rooms and rates for this true Nantucket tradition – a weekend full of festivities, complete with art shows, an antique car parade and community tailgate picnic.
