Tom & Lisa celebrating 30th wedding Anniversary
Lisa has “always wanted to visit Nantucket”. Her wish was granted when Tom made arrangements for them to travel from Dallas, TX to visit the Island this September as an anniversary gift. They were delighted to have just lucked into planning a late September stay at the Sherburne Inn having no idea it was Restaurant Week, that the throngs of tourists had thinned out, yet all the attractions, restaurants, and shops were open, or that the mid day sun was still warm but the evenings considerably cooler.
Since Lisa wasn’t really “a Bed&Breakfast kind of person”, Tom first thought of renting a house for their four-day visit. The online search was overwhelming and the couple decided to look into small in-town Inns for accommodations instead. Attracted by the Sherburne Inn’s informative and attractive website, they booked room #4 “Love At First Sight”.
Each one of their four full days on Nantucket seemed to be filled with adventure and discovery, either by rented Jeep or rented bicycles, followed by “outstandingly delicious” dinners at our neighborhood restaurants. Among the standouts they enjoyed were Straight Wharf for the actual anniversary dinner, Black Eyed Susan’s, Centre St. Bistro, the fish stew at the Brotherhood of Thieves, and lobster salad at Sayles Seafoods overlooking the Creeks.
When asked about their favorite memory of their first visit to Nantucket, Lisa spoke right up with a smile on her face as she described being at Cisco Beach when the fog rolled in so thickly that they had to follow their own footsteps back to their Jeep. “We just don’t get fog back in Dallas”.
Smitten by Nantucket’s extraordinary natural beauty as well as our neighborhood’s most wonderful restaurants, perhaps we have a convert to the B&B experience as well. Lisa was complimentary about the professionalism at the Sherburne Inn and appreciated the Breakfast Baskets that they enjoyed together in their room. We hope they will come back for many more anniversary celebrations!
