Welcome to the Nantucket Accommodations Newsletter



We have turned the page into the holiday season.  Halloween has passed and so has Fall considering the early season snow from last weekend's nor'easter! 


Over 100 Christmas trees will appear downtown soon and will be decorated by local residents and businesses to spruce the town up for the upcoming holiday season.  There is our annual Christmas Stroll that is always the first weekend in December, but did you know that the actual start of the holiday festivities begins with Thanksgiving, known as the start of Nantucket Noel. At sunset the day after Thanksgiving, everyone gathers at the top of Main Street for the lighting of the trees and caroling.    


The day before Thanksgiving the Nantucket Historical Association opens its doors with free admission to the Annual Festival of Wreaths.  If you have not seen this wonderful display of creativity and you happen to be here on island, do not miss it! 

We have designed a very special Thanksgiving package that includes a stay at a fully equipped four bedroom home located just a five minute stroll from Main Street, ferry tickets, and a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with "all the fixings".  A perfect pre-holiday getaway for your family!

Now in its 38th year, Christmas Stroll Weekend is held the weekend after Thanksgiving. The 2011 Christmas Stroll will take place on December 2 - 4. Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive on Saturday via Coast Guard vessel and are escorted up Straight Wharf by the Town Crier to a waiting horse and carriage. They parade up to the Pacific National Bank where they meet with eagerly awaiting children. Those in line are entertained by the Magical Talking Tree, while carolers in period costume, bell ringers, student choirs and more perform on Main Street. Holiday craft shows, exhibitions and performances - including the popular annual Christmas House tour on Friday evening - add to the joyful festivities.

2012 Season

Nantucket Accommodations would like you to take a look at our new website.  We still are loading new information and content.  Our new home will offer you a broad view of the properties that we represent.  
Remember that vacation rentals in the peak months are very popular and do book early.  To book that exact week you are planning an island visit please do so earlier rather than latter.
Kayaks Harbor 
We are here to assist in finding the right location for your visit. No matter if you are planning a trip to the island just for 1 night or 1 week, we can help you.
As we continue to grow Nantucket Accommodations, there will be new ways to book your entire trip to our great island.
We are growing our "likes" on Facebook. We post information on upcoming events and activities.  As the busy season approaches we will post any last minute openings that may happen. 

Occasionally in the shoulder seasons we may post discounts at some of our nightly lodging partners or possibly a last minute opening at one of our vacation rentals.
