If the winter months have you craving a snowy retreat surrounded by off-season island fun and warm fireplaces, The Bungalow at Greydon House should be on your list. An iconic stay in Nantucket, Massachusetts, The Bungalow offers a two-bedroom, three-bathroom retreat in the heart of historic downtown.

Retreat as a couple or bring along the kids and hunker down in The Bungalow, a standalone residence for added privacy and home-away-from-home aesthetic. Cozy up by the fireplace and take advantage of the retreat’s complimentary breakfast. Venture out to the enclosed, private backyard and enjoy the views of Old North Church, a historic centerpiece of Nantucket.

While cozy, The Bungalow can actually accommodate up to six guests, so it can easily be made into a family affair or retreat with close friends — just turn the first floor into a comfy hideaway with two twin beds or one king-sized bed.

If this bungalow retreat is celebrating a special occasion, take advantage of the dedicated concierge service that can arrange for anything from in-suite candle-making classes and pre-ordered birthday cakes to charcuterie boards and even private weddings. Rates for The Bungalow begin at $500 a night.


Don’t forget to bundle up and explore town, with most highlights just a five-minute walk. Check The Bungalow’s new offerings for extended stays, exceeding 14 days, where guests can work remotely, enjoy weekly Champagne toasts and enjoy more of Nantucket with a stay extending beyond self-quarantine protocols.
