Quick Getaway: 21 Broad Nantucket

For the next few days Andrew and I are heading to Nantucket- a quick getaway to celebrate our 9th anniversary.  Fall in Nantucket is awesome- a little quieter but still beautiful weather and plenty to do. We’re spending two nights at The White Elephant but for the first night (tonight!) we’re checking out a new hotel in town, 21 Broad.  A modern take on summery Nantucket style, this space was decorated by Boston- based uber-talent Rachel Reider.  Rachel’s decorated all of this boutique hotel company’s properties (amazing gig, right?) and this one adds another feather in her cap.  Take a peek and follow me on Instagram to see more from my Nantucket trip!




LOVE this modern fireplace feature in the main room!


A serene and modern room at the hotel.



Proof that you can create a bold look based in neutrals- just use bright color in accent pieces!


Love the variety of colors in each room.


A lovely outdoor space (complete with firepit).


A great location in town where you can walk to everything (even the ferry).


Now I gotta go CATCH that ferry!


  1. Hi! I have to say, you are so impressive how you post every morning, bright and early! Here you’re heading off to glorious Nantucket and yet you still manage to post to your faithful readers. Have a wonderful anniversary trip!

  2. Do not miss the Cliff walk in Sconset – the best mix of stunning Fall Nantucket beauty and house porn – the path runs along the cliff and straight through the backyards of all the mansions so you can peek inside. A little tough to find, but worth it! Enjoy!

  3. This is beautiful, but I have to wonder why there was no thought given to architectural lighting or accent lighting on the artwork – especially in the large lounge space!

  4. Nantucket is my haven! It’s so beautiful in the fall and I recently stopped in 21 Broad to do some interior design snooping — it is stunning! Have a lovely trip. xo E (www.stix-and-stonez.com)

  5. We spent a long weekend in Nantucket a few weeks ago and stayed at the White Elephant (which was heaven), but I was SO curious about 21 Broad! Curious to hear your thoughts as we kept walking by and peeking in… Have fun!

  6. So happy to read your blog post and comments this morning. We are on Nantucket and had an amazing walk along the cliff in Sconset. Rode our bikes there, ate an amazing lunch in the garden at Chanticleer and then took the walk. Would never have known that existed, and it was the best part of an amazing day. Always a good reason to read your posts each day, but today was definitely worth it! Have a great anniversary.

  7. You and your husband will love 26 Board Street.
    A friend of mine owns it part of the Lark Company.
    Of course, the White Elephant is fantastic.
    I hope you have sunshine … Actually, rain or shine
    you will have a great time .
