Island Guide

Located thirty miles off the coast of Cape Cod and accessible only by air or by sea, the island of Nantucket is a magical place. Known to the islanders and frequent visitors as “The Grey Lady” due to the frequent layer of fog that settles over the land, the stunning beaches are accessible via bike paths that span the island. The iconic cobblestone streets, historic buildings and picturesque harbor create the unique backdrop for this boutique celebration of wine and food.
