Donna Elle helps design Anchorage House at The Wauwinet

The new three-bedroom Anchorage House at The Wauwinet will open in May on Nantucket. Located on the northeast end of the island and steps away from two beaches — one on the Atlantic Ocean and one on the Bay — the new accommodation will evoke the feeling of a private beach house.

Anchorage House will mirror a classic Nantucket cottage with wooden shingles and white trim. Local interior designer Donna Elle, who is involved in the property development, will bring coastal-inspired elements with driftwood-like finishes and a palette of corals, blues, and golden sands.

The property will offer a living room with a fireplace, kitchenette and large table for entertaining, as well as two private ground-floor decks surrounded by landscaped gardens. The three bedrooms will have different design elements, each with their own Bose music system and private bath. Other amenities will include an office, washer and dryer, linens by Pratesi, hybrid bicycles, Nespresso and Keurig machines, as well as beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels.

Located across the street from the main Inn, the Anchorage House will be situated alongside the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge, a peninsula that leads to Great Point Lighthouse. Nantucket Town is a 15-minute drive from the property and a round-trip hourly jitney service is available.

All guests of the property will have access to complimentary amenities at The Wauwinet, including kayaks, lobster outings, tennis, afternoon cheese and port and shuttle service to the ferry dock. The Wauwinet is home to the TOPPER’S restaurant.
