Boston Magazine has announced their picks for the Best of Boston, its Suburbs and the Cape & Islands 2018. The extensive lists include dining, accommodations, bars, breweries, shopping, entertainment and more.
If you have been searching for the perfect spot on Cape Cod, Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard for a little R & R, consider these picks for the best resort hotels.
This 48-acre resort features a Victorian-style mansion and a carriage house with a stone tower overlooking Cape Cod Bay. The property dates back to 1890 but the luxury accommodations are totally modern. Relax on the private beach or indulge in a day at the Ocean Edge spa. More active vacationers can enjoy a game of tennis, a kayak trip around the bay or a round of golf on the resort's 18-hole course designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus. Don't miss the evening beach fires where guests roast S'mores at sunset!
Located on the northeast shores of Nantucket, The Wauwinet resort features a sprawling main house and four luxury cottages. The property neighbors Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge and overlooks the pristine Nantucket Bay. In addition to the gorgeous, relaxing setting and private beaches, the Wauwinet is home to the award-winning restaurant, Topper's serving fresh, local seafood caught just 300 yards away! Try the cornmeal-crusted soft-shell crab paired with your choice of 1,450 wines!
Choose from traditional hotel rooms, suites with up to four bedrooms, cottages, and private home rentals to accommodate the entire family - all within walking distance of the beach! The resort features two heated pools, a hot tub, yoga classes, shuttle service to nearby Edgartown, and an onsite restaurant overlooking the ocean. Enjoy weekly clambakes on the beach, kayak tours, lighthouse tours, or rent a pair of bikes and explore the island yourselves!
