Sensitive restoration maintains the Nantucket authenticity of this former sea captain’s home while making way for the comforts and technology that 21st-century guests expect on the toniest of Massachusetts islands.

The Bullpen: a post-and-beam barn

Like the house, the property’s bullpen has had many lives. This stout little post-and-beam barn sits on a solid foundation of quarried granite. Inside, the ring that once held a bull in check by his nose remains embedded in the stone wall, but not much else is the same. At

Massachusetts Dining by the Water

Through some magic of architecture, the dining room at The Red Inn promotes the illusion of floating, like the many boats just outside in Provincetown Harbor–or maybe we were seeing things after our pre-lunch bike ride through the dunes to one of the lighthouses. The sea-level view here seems never-ending;
