May I please have S’More?!
It’s the simple things in life, so the expression goes, but something I often forget...
It has been a season of memorable bites at our marvelous restaurants, from hamachi at the Wauwinet to congee at The Pearl, but just when I thought I couldn’t be dazzled, I happened upon the Nantucket Hotel. If you haven’t been there, you must--at a minimum to see the lovely resurrection and renovation of the former Point Breeze/Gordon Folger hotel. It was a quick job--January purchase > June opening, but it is very attractive in a comfortable, yachty way. And that pool! It certainly seems to be done well and run well; the staff from top-down are super friendly and go out of their way. Don’t miss the vintage Nantucket photos down the long hallway--they are priceless!
Now, about the dazzling part. There is a fantastic little deck behind the Breeze Bar & Cafe that has two large square fire tables and comfy sofas to lounge upon. It is pleasant--and novel--enough to enjoy a glass of wine outside in late-October, but what is really nifty is to roast your own s’mores. For $8/person, you get all the fixins to make your gooey marshmallow treat plus a mug of cider or hot chocolate, lunch or dinner. How cool is that?! If you desire a liquid dessert, try a Heathbar martini.
Speaking of cool, those heat lamps can only do so much--bundle up.
PS Ask about the special off-season rate for Nantucketers and plan a stay-cation--it's practically free!
