Nestled on the water’s edge, the White Elephant is an intimately-scaled, full service hotel with dramatic views of Nantucket Harbor the perfect location for an island wedding. Perfect for intimate weddings (up to 60), and medium sized weddings (up to 150) overlooking the Nantucket harbor. In the spring and fall, the White Elephant is available for larger wedding parties and tented events (up to 300). Wedding parties can reserve the entire hotel so that your family and friends can enjoy privacy and the dedicated attention of our entire staff.

• Ceremony and cocktails on the lawn
• Dinner and dancing on the Harborside Terrace or in a tent overlooking the harbor
• All 65 rooms, suites and cottages will be exclusively occupied by your friends and family for two or three days
• Flexible event space that can accommodate a variety of events from the rehearsal dinner and reception to the bridal lunch and Sunday brunch

Dating back to the 1920s, the White Elephant began as an eclectic mix of cottages and has evolved into a premier Nantucket hotel that offers an unexpected blend of island charm and sophisticated amenities that is perfect for Nantucket lodging. The cobblestone streets, arts galleries, and historic buildings are just a few steps away in Nantucket Town, as are Brant Point Beach and Brant Point Lighthouse.
53 large guestrooms offer a mix of single bedrooms and two room suites, many with fireplaces and harbor views. 11 Garden Cottages feature one-, two-, and three-bedrooms. And the
White Elephant Loft is a 3,000 square foot, two-story loft located at the base of Main Street.

Brant Point Grill, located at the White Elephant, is the island’s premier steak and seafood restaurant offering indoor or al fresco dining with magnificent views of the ever-changing harbor.

White Elephant Spa offers sea-inspired facials, massages and treatments in a serene and relaxing setting.

One month ago, my husband and I were married on Nantucket. From the minute we got engagement, we knew this was the destination, but finding the venue was the hard part. There are many beautiful places on Nantucket, however I confidently say, after much deliberation, we made the right choice. We had the entire hotel for all of our friends and family to stay at and celebrated from Friday night through Sunday brunch and each event exceed my expectations.
Throughout the course of the weekend, the level of service to not just us, but to every single guest went above and beyond. They treated every person as if it was thier big day as well, and ultimately that meant so much in terms of creating a really intimate and special feel for the weekend. In terms of the venue physically - spectacular setting. I mean, just Nantucket in a nutshell. We used all different areas of the property from the spa lawn for a Welcome Party under a tent, to the Lawn for cocktails and finally the Terrace for the reception and farewell brunch. The staff, especially Mark and Bettina, did such an excellent job in translating my vision and executing three outstanding events, each one having a distinct and different feel despite being in the same place. Our guests, even one month after the wedding, continue to rave about the amazing food at every meal, the most comfortable beds in the world, the prettiest harbor views and most importantly, how they were treated when they were at the White Elephant. It was a true vacation for all and I could not have been happier with the outcome!!!
