“The White Elephant can be perfectly described in one word: charming. From the pretty property with its handy beach and town proximity to the fabulous staff, my whole family and I were charmed from the start! From the moment we walked in the door until we departed, the staff just could not do enough for us. Our teens are early risers, so each morning they enjoyed the independence of helping themselves to pastries and fruit in the library before heading to the beach. Speaking of breakfast, do be sure to try the famous and phenomenal Lobster Bloody Mary!“

Making memories with the family. We enjoyed Jetty beach with the kids as it’s a bit less crowded, and we’re not exactly looking to surf all day. The property is in a conveniently central location, making it easy to take evening walks to town for dinner or just an ice cream.
The whole family. The hotel is really teen-friendly.
We had an adults-only night one evening starting at the hotel’s Brant Point Grill for a sunset drink, situated right on the harbor, then walked to Lola a few minutes away for a great night out – awesome music, excellent food and a good crowd. It was great to have a relaxing and fun dinner with just the two of us, and we were at ease knowing the kids were in great hands at the hotel with a babysitter.
Best time to go
We are big fans of this island anytime of year – even for the Christmas markets!
Some of the Cottages are merely 3 feet from the street. This would important to watch out for if you have little ones for safety and noise reasons. Make sure when booking to request to stay a bit farther away.
