The White Elephant Nantucket Island Resort, one of only a few historic Nantucket hotels considered an island landmark, has evolved from an eclectic mix of harbor cottages to one of the finest hotels on Nantucket. With its sophisticated guest rooms, suites, garden cottages and magnificent harbor views, it is an unexpected blend of island charm and sophisticated comfort.
The White Elephant has graced Nantucket’s waterfront since the 1920’s. Originally a collection of rustic cottages, the fledgling hotel was the dream of a prominent Nantucket socialite, Elizabeth T. Ludwig. She believed that the property would one day be a fine harborside hotel. Her pet project became the talk of the town, known affectionately as “Mrs. Ludwig’s white elephant” – a witty name that stuck.
From its stunning Nantucket Harbor waterfront location the White Elephant offers distinct types of luxury accommodations: guest rooms, suites, garden cottages and spectacular in-town lofts. ANICHINI is pleased to have been chosen as the White Elephant’s source for luxury bedding and decorative accessories.
