Working and learning look a bit different for a lot of us these days. Working from home and virtual learning has become the norm, and while there may be some pain points, there are also a lot of benefits! One of those benefits is that you can be anywhere! Whether you're looking for an inspirational place to work or a destination for hands-on learning, Nantucket has a lot to offer.
All of our Nantucket rentals have ample space for extended stays for learning and working remotely, plus they are equipped with reliable WiFi connection.

Hands-on Learning on Nantucket
The Whaling Museum
The Nantucket Whaling Museum is a must-visit for learning on the island. Featuring nine galleries of permanent and rotating exhibits, artifacts, treasures, works of art, and more, the Nantucket Whaling Museum documents more than four centuries of whaling. The museum is also home to a 46-foot sperm whale skeleton, a restored 1847 candle factory, and more.
Nantucket's Nature & Wildlife
Nantucket is home to a beautiful landscape with diverse flora and fauna. The pristine landscapes are home to a variety of wildlife, including seals, birds, deer, and more. On Nantucket, you can go hiking, biking, surfing, fishing, and boating to take in nature.
Established in 1746, Nantucket's Brant Point was the second lighthouse established in colonial America, although it's been rebuilt and moved since its original inception. Owned by the U.S. Coast Guard, the Brant Point Lighthouse is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Nantucket Land Bank is a land conservation program that works to protect open spaces and endangered landscapes on Nantucket so that they can be enjoyed for generations. There are pieces of land throughout the island owned by Nantucket Land Bank to visit, including the Codfish Park Playground, Gardner Farm, Hinsdale Park, Norwood Farm/Stump Pond, Sanford Farm West/Head of the Plains, and more.
Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge is home to miles of Nantucket beaches and 200 acres of protected land that is home to hundreds of osprey, gray and harbor seals, and other seabirds. Here you can go hiking, surfing, off-roading, and more. This park boasts the largest red cedar woodland in New England.
Located at the northeast tip of Nantucket within the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge, the Nantucket National Wildlife Refuge is home to the Great Point Lighthouse.
Historic Streets of Downtown Nantucket
You can learn about the history of Nantucket just by taking a walk down the street. Many of the island's most iconic homes were built in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Nantucket Historical Association preserves and maintains many of the oldest homes on the island.
Visit historic homes like the Oldest House (built in 1686), Jethro Coffin House, Hadwen House, and the Thomas Macy House.
If you're a history buff, stay in our most storied rentals on Nantucket like 27 Union Street, which was originally built to house sailors of the whaling ships. This home still has its original brick hearth in the basement and widow's walk.
