It’s been a long winter, and we are all more than ready for a summer escape. While Nantucket feels like a world away, and often carries an air of exclusivity, it is an easily accessible getaway for north-easterners. As you begin to map out your summer vacation plans, make this dream getaway a reality with a few dollar-saving seasonal offers:
Discounted Ferry Tickets from the Veranda House Collection
Located just steps from the center of town and the pristine beaches of Nantucket, the Veranda House Hotel Collection is comprised of three properties, each offering a distinct style and price point. There is the retro-chic 18-room Veranda House, the high design, 11-room Chapman House, and the Arbor Cottage, which offers three Nantucket-style guest rooms including a two bedroom suite that can sleep up to four people. The collection is currently offering discounted ferry tickets and seasonal rates. Guests staying at any of the three properties will receive savings of $50 based on two round-trip Fast Ferry passes purchased directly from the Veranda House Hotel Collection.
The Veranda House Hotel Collection is also offering a seasonal special at the Chapman House. This 3-2-1 Countdown to Summer Package is available for stays between May 18 and June 17 and includes two complimentary round-trip passes on the Steamship Authority Fast Ferry (savings of $140) for a three night stay, or one complimentary pass (savings of $70) for a two night stay. This package is available only at the Chapman House and is valid for new reservations only.
Rates during that time period start at $129 mid-week and $289 on weekends at The Veranda House; $119 midweek and $289 weekends at Chapman House, and $149 mid-week; $289 weekends at Arbor Cottage. Rates include a three-course served epicurean breakfast for Veranda House and Arbor House guests, or a continental buffet breakfast at Chapman House.
One Night Free and Specialty Packages at the Veranda House Collection
From Sundays through Thursdays, May 19 – 29, if you stay two nights, you get the third free at Veranda House, Chapman House or Arbor Cottage (cannot be combined with other offers; new reservations only).
Guests at any of the Veranda House Hotel Collection properties can also take advantage of several specialty package offerings. With the Bikes, Beer, Bartlett and Beach Package, guests can peddle over to Nantucket’s own Cisco Brewers before heading over to Bartlett Farm to pick up their gourmet lunch for the beach ($100 per person for two people). The one-and-a-half-hour Discover Nantucket Package tour is a great way to learn about the Island’s history and includes passes to Nantucket’s Whaling museum plus a surprise giveaway ($85 for two). With the Spa Package guests can choose from a traditional one hour Swedish massage or organic DNA facial ($125 per person, including gratuity).
The Veranda House Hotel Collection will open for the season on May 14, 2014.
Stay Five Nights, Save 30 Percent at Nantucket Island Resorts
This collection of three luxurious hotels is priced on the higher side, but, by booking five consecutive nights from July 6 – 24, you can save 30 percent. Rates start at $2,500 for five nights at the White Elephant Village and The Wauwinet ($500 per night), while rates at Jared Coffin House start at $1,180 for five nights ($236 per night).
Jared Coffin House was formerly the home of one of New England’s most successful whaling ship owners. The property is made up of two buildings and is located in downtown Nantucket. The White Elephant Village is located three blocks from town and comprises the new Inn and the one-, two-, and three-bedroom Residences. Guests who book any of the three-bedroom Residences will receive the keys to their own BMW X5 Sport Activity Vehicle for complimentary use during their stay. The Wauwinet, a Relais & Chateaux property, is situated between the Nantucket Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, offering unparalleled views and private beach access to both the bay and ocean. It is home to TOPPER’S restaurant, which was recently voted Massachusetts’s top rated restaurant in the 2014 Zagat survey.
