I know I go on ad nauseum about Nantucket, but it’s truly a magical place for me. I love the charming homes, the quaint downtown, and even those god damn cobblestone streets. Each time I leave there, no matter how exhausted, I’m inspired to be more creative and explore a new path in life. (Most of those new paths usually end up with me moving there.) This trip is no different. I feel energized to lean into my creative side and dial into that more. More to come there, but I can always count on Nantucket to inspire me.
I’ll be writing all about my stay at Life House and Faraway, but both properties are beautiful. The team behind Life House designed the Faraway property, but by no means are the two the same. I’m excited to share my thoughts and I’ll have those posts up soon. Spoiler alert: I recommend both for different types of stays.
Like most of my trips, this one was centered around food. While last year I had my own house and kitchen for a few of my trips, I went out to eat for all my meals this visit. Luckily things were back to normal, and all restaurants were open, so I didn’t lack options.
We went to Slip 14 for frozen espresso martinis when we arrived. There was a phenomenal playlist feat. Huey Lewis and the News. We even bonded with Charles Kelly from Lady A over it. We went to Cru a few times. I couldn’t get enough of their smoked fish dip and halibut. (Kenny Chesney was at Cru too.) We saw Ramona Singer from RHONY at Club Car. And in even bigger Club Car news, I got my sing-along! God, I missed those last year. We loved Bar Yoshi so much that we went for lunch AND dinner on the same day. We sat on the amazing back patio at Or, The Whale and had a delicious Black Bass. After a beach day at Jettie’s, we grabbed some mudslides and blackened fish sammies at Sandbar. And when we were stranded on the island for another day because Elsa canceled all of the ferries, we grabbed some cocktails and burgers at the White Elephant and had ourselves a time.
This was an action-packed visit, and I wouldn’t change a thing. I can’t wait for my next visit!
