Lifestyle hotel brand Life House has announced its newest project, set to open this summer, the Life House, Nantucket. Blue Flag Partners, a Boston-based investor and developer, acquired Massachusetts’ historic Century House on Cliff Road in January, and hired Life House to redesign and operate the hotel. Life House, Nantucket will be the brand’s first hotel to open in the Northeast, with additional projects in the region to be announced soon.
The building dates back to the 1830s, when Captain Robert Calder built the Coastal Federal-style mansion as his personal home between whaling expeditions. In 1870, Calder opened his doors to travelers, inspiring the design narrative of a nonchalant innkeeper’s humble abode. Similar to all Life House properties, Life House, Nantucket will honor this history and the surrounds to further refine the aesthetic of the hotel and create a thoughtfully designed, locally rooted experience for guests.
The hotel also reflects the nostalgic musing for the island’s native botany, fostering a retreat for holistic wellness, with raffia writing desks and botanical walk-in shower details. All 17 rooms were designed by Life House’s in-house team. Guestrooms will be light, airy, and individually styled with local art, vintage artifacts, and inspired textures.
The property will also include a 300-square-foot living room and kitchen with plentiful seating and a 675-square-foot garden lounge with daybeds.
