The tiny isolated island off Cape Cod, Massachusetts, is a summer destination for travelers looking for some R&R amidst dune-backed beaches, cedar-shingled houses, scenic lighthouses, and cobblestone streets. You can only reach the island by ferry, boat or airplane – there is no bridge – but the island’s quaint seaside cottages, coastal restaurants, and boutique shops are well worth the trip.It’s also the site of America’s most swoon-worthy hotel! TripAdvisor recently announced the winners of its Travelers’ Choice Awards and for the second year in a row the Nantucket Hotel & Resort was ranked No. 1 in the country, No. 7 among hotels around the globe. Think of it as a fabulous home away from home, when hunting for that perfect Nantucket retreat.
Fun Fact: According to Hunter Reed & Co Real Estate, Nantucket’s nickname, “The Little Grey Lady of the Sea,”refers to the island as it appears from the ocean when it is fog-bound. For those in the market for ultra-luxury Nantucket estates, they are a great resource, featuring homes ranging from the $10 million-plus category, but today we are answering the age old question – “What can I get for a million in Nantucket?”
