Stopping a moment to help cheerful staff serve breakfasts made to order, Ken helps one customer with a route to the island’s picturesque Steps Beach. He sits down and carefully pencils in the quickest route to the beach. “Be sure to stop here and seee the whaling museum first—then if you’re hungry, this place has terrific sandwiches—have fun,” he says before moving on to the next guest.

“I think that’s what sets Union Street apart is that we take the time to make every guest’s experience unique,” says Ken. “We want each visit to be memorable—so we will sit and draw maps, share the ins and outs of dining, shopping—help them pick the best beach or restaurant to go to.”

As the ferry boat’s horn sounds, signaling the arrival of more island visitors, Union Street’s guests climb on bikes to explore Sconset and head off on foot for Main Street ambles. Fortified with first-rate breakfast fare—and with a carefully planned guide in hand—you can see why Union Street is known worldwide for offering Nantucket visitors a fine union of first rate dining, deluxe accommodations—and personal hands-on care.
