Summer’s still around for another month or so, so you’ve still got plenty of time to go the classic summer-vacation route here on the island of Nantucket with a Greydon House getaway.
And not much says “summer” quite like a couple of scoops of ice cream within shouting distance of the seashore, right? Fortunately, our boutique Broad Street hotel puts you not only within easy reach of Nantucket’s great beaches, bike trails, lighthouses, seafood establishments, scenic cruises, and historical sites: You’re also beautifully set up in the dessert-refreshments department.
Here are some fine places in our near vicinity to avail yourself of ice cream and frozen yogurt: usually exactly what the doctor ordered on a summer afternoon or evening on Nantucket!
You’ve got more than a few purveyors of frozen treats at your fingertips with a Greydon House home base. There’s Jack & Charlie’s Ice Cream over at 10 Straight Wharf, offering nearly 30 ice-cream flavors as well as six kinds of gelato if you want to go the Italian route. A stone’s throw away at 27 Straight Wharf, Stars Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt scoops out its own rich array of flavors, and also offers some old-fashioned milkshakes worth writing home about.
Just down the block from us here at Greydon House, meanwhile, The Juice Bar at 12 Broad Street has been tantalizing patrons with its awesome waffle cones for a long time (and, as the name suggests, also sells various juices and smoothies).
Other great options for frozen treats, smoothies, and the like within strolling distance of Greydon House include Lemon Press at 41 Main Street, the Nantucket Pharmacy at 45 Main Street, and Ice at 21 Old South Wharf, the island’s sole purveyor of Italian ice.
Did We Mention Greydon House?
That’s right: As a Greydon House guest, you’ve got awesome ice cream at your disposal without even leaving our hotel. The Restaurant at Greydon House serves up a whole passel of dessert masterpieces, and alongside them are our very own handmade ice creams and sorbets: Check out the day’s selection and choose up to three flavors for some after-dinner goodness!
