Circa 1898. Conveniently located at the quiet end of Main Street, the Nantucket Whale Inn is the perfect place to experience Half Moon Bay and the Coastline. Indulge in relaxed luxury at this new boutique inn with classic beach decor reflecting the feel of an elegant Nantucket Island home -- opulent and tasteful, comfortable and cozy. The atmosphere is casual, but the experience is rich. Guest rooms are as restful as the ocean breeze with tranquil colors of blues and grays. The common areas provide a quiet retreat. and the lush garden is accented with soothing sounds of water splashing in the fountain. The patio with fire table offers a relaxing place to unwind as guests enjoy the wine and cheese hour after an exhilarating day. A delectable full breakfast is served to fuel you for a new adventure exploring our beautiful coast.

Describe Garden and Grounds

Our English-style garden provides a tranquil environment to ease you into the slightly slower pace of this historic seaside village. It's the perfect place to read a book, take a nap, engage in stimulating conversation, or to savor a few quiet moments. On chilly evenings, the fire table on the brick patio casts a warm, inviting glow. And on soft, lazy coastside afternoons, the profusion of fragrant, colorful growing herbs and flowers is positively astounding.
