Wintertime activities don’t get much more quintessential and timeless than ice skating, and as a guest here at Greydon House you’re well positioned to indulge here in the all-around magical Nantucket “off-season.”
Staying at our boutique hotel on Broad Street, you’re just minutes from the Nantucket Ice Community Rink, an all-ages destination on the island since 2002. In actual fact, the non-profit Nantucket Ice keeps the rink open year-round, which means you’ve always got a venue at which to strap on some skates, whenever you happen to be calling Greydon House your home-away-from-home.
Introducing the Nantucket Ice Community Rink
Whether you’re a professional-grade ice skater, a casual one, or an utter newbie to the activity, the Nantucket Ice Community Rink makes a great choice for some wholesome and fun recreation during your Greydon House getaway.
Besides serving islanders and visitors alike as a public ice-skating venue, the Community Rink serves as “home ice” for the Nantucket Whalers and Nantucket Nor’easters hockey teams as well as the Island Waves Synchronized Skating Team and Nantucket Curling Club.
Public Ice Skating & Lessons at the Nantucket Ice Community Rink
The rink is open for public skating several times a week, with $8 admission for adults and $5 for kids, and $5 for rental skates. Nantucket Ice coaches also teach private and semi-private skating classes, in case you want to up your on-the-ice game during your island visit.
There are also a slew of other public activities hosted on the rink, including the fall-through-spring Adult Coffee Skate on select mornings, which gives you a laidback skate spiced by some free coffee, and the Adult Ice-r-cise fitness classes. These skating offerings come interspersed with competitive and pick-up hockey and curling sessions.
