New to Nantucket, Faraway opened in the heart of downtown in the summer of 2021, just steps from cafes, restaurants and shops. While not located on the beach, the 62-room property reminds guests that they are, indeed, on an island, coastal accessories in the rooms (ropes, seashell details, calming color palette) Mediterranean-inspired seafood – menu-centric offerings at the on-site restaurant, Sister Ship. The indoor-outdoor restaurant serves lunch and dinner (as well as cocktails and wines). Settle in in front of one of the bar stools or comfy sofas inside the eclectic lounge or take a seat on the airy terrace. The main attraction, however, is arguably the photogenic and secretive garden-like courtyard, outfitted with rattan chairs and fringed umbrellas, all surrounded by the property’s clapboard buildings. It’s not uncommon to see passers-by stopping to take a look (and a snapshot on Instagram), inevitably drawn in for a cocktail. Bikes are also available on loan for guests wishing to explore the area, and in-room maps help craft the perfect route, though the front desk is happy to share recommendations. The whole experience is inspired by 1920s Paris and the fantastic adventures of a woman ship captain. “It’s a bit of a merrymaking nestled in a collection of historic and refined buildings,” Jason Brown of Blue Flag Partners, the hotel’s creators, said in a statement. “It’s like what we imagined might have happened in the 1920s in Gertrude Stein’s living room in Paris, but on an island.”
