Pack Your Critter Pants And Head to Nantucket for Midweek Deals
In addition to being a painfully cheesy punchline, Nantucket is also a great, but expensive, New England vacation spot. But if you can steal away for some last-minute mid-week beach time, youíll score lower rates and not have to go to work. Where can we sign up?
One deal in particular grabbed our attention: the Jared Coffin House, which we admit stood out based on its morbid name. No worries, though, itís named for a 19th-century man with an unfortunate name, not as a warning about wooden boxes as beds.
Anyways, the inn is an historic whaling captainís mansion near Main Street offering rates that start at $250 July 20-21 and 26-29 (or, if youíre really spontaneous, you might be able to stay tonight for $165). Guests also get 15 percent off breakfast and lunch at White Elephantís Brant Point Grill and at the innís own Harbor Wok for dinner and takeout.
Just make sure you clear your calendar before booking; the Jared Coffin House is rather finicky about their cancellation policy.
