Nantucket in the Winter // Part Two.Point.Five: Brant Point Light

Brant Point Lighthouse Winter

Shocker: We made time for lighthouses on our trip.

We saw Brant Point Light this past summer, but it was quite possibly even more beautiful under a fresh coat of snow. It was frigid out there on the point, and yet we couldn’t help but stick around for a while… clearly capturing every angle possible…

Nantucket in the Winter // Part Two: After the Snow

Nantucket Snow

And then the snow arrived on Nantucket and created the prettiest of winter wonderlands. If this is overkill, I do apologize. My frostbitten fingers are also not impressed with the amount of photos I took.

Starlight Theater Nantucket

Major to-do if you just can’t take the cold anymore: dinner + a movie at Starlight Theater & Cafe– teeny tiny movie theater showing just one film a day, and you can bring your beverage of choice right on in there with ya!


Nantucket Harbor in the winter

[ travel summary ]
who:: just BF + me, again.
what:: rotate between seeing all of the sweet, snowy sights + warming up inside with coffee, tea, & adult beverages. don’t feel guilty if you resort to going to the movies because a) nantucket has the cutest movie theaters around, and b) at a certain point, you gotta give into the cold.
when:: this is for winter. if it is above 45 degrees and not precipitating, get the heck outside.
where:: snuggle up + caffeinate yourselves at the bean and petticoat row bakery | eat, drink, and watch a flick at starlight theater & cafe | again, stay at the centerboard inn [ innkeeper lyn serves tea each day at 3pm + it was the perfect escape from the cold! ]
wear:: ok, bundle up a little more this time. and bean boots are especially key.

A Winter Escape


This past weekend, BF and I braved the oncoming snow and took a drive down to northern Pennsylvania. We had a, quite literally, dreamy winter-wonderland weekend bundled up at Skytop Lodge, a stunning resort in the Poconos Mountains that dates back to 1925. It was like taking a step back in time… such a beautiful place with so much rich history!

old fashioned ski lodge for Christmas

[ travel summary ]
who:: family, friends, or romantic getaway. we went a huge group of family and it could not have been more fun.
what:: stay cozied up at the lodge, the inn, or one of the cottages. lounge around the lodge living and game areas. ice skate. soak in the hot tub. climb to the observation deck. have milkshakes in the tea room. hike if weather cooperates. ski the bunny hill on the property, or there are other mountains within a 45-minute drive.
when:: this post only speaks to skytop in the winter [which was amazing!], but it is even more popular in the summer.
where:: skytop, pennsylvania in the pocono mountains. within a 5-hour drive of boston, nyc, and philadelphia.
wear:: not too long ago, you were not welcome in the dining room without a jacket. things have casual-ed up a bit, but still better to be overdressed than under here! #shmancy
