Picnic in Style with Audi and Greydon House
No need to pack your own beach picnic on Nantucket: Greydon House and Audi have teamed up for the ultimate summer experience. The hotel is now home to the Audi Q7 House Car — an off-road-ready luxury SUV ready to whisk you to any beach on the island.
With 125 miles of coastline, Nantucket’s beaches are virtually limitless, with many only accessible by SUV; the House Car lets you picnic on any remote beach you choose. Restaurant chef Marcus Gleadow-Ware creates an bespoke picnic hamper with an elaborate spread unlike any other: think the lobster “Knuckle Sandwich” with avocado on toasted brioche, seasonal crudité with spiced aïoli, and of course, a chilled bottle of rosé. (Thanks to your driver, feel free to indulge all you want.)
If you’re after rough and lively surf, head for the South Shore beaches; for tranquil, warmer waters, the protected North Shore is your best bet. Whether you brave the sand roads of Madequecham to watch the Atlantic waves roll in, venture out to Dionis to picnic by the calm of Nantucket Sound, or descend the idyllic staircase at stunning Steps Beach, you’ll be armed with the classiest picnic lunch Nantucket has ever seen. Eat and drink at your leisure. And don’t worry about the beach gear; towels, lounge chairs, and sunblock are all on-hand.
Lobster rolls on a secluded Nantucket stretch of sand? It’s a summer dream.
