Hottest new hotels named by Conde Nast includes Nantucket property

Life House Nantucket, opened last year in a former sea captain's home, includes a garden space for gathering.

A 14-room Nantucket hotel that opened in August has been named to the “hot list” of top new hotels in the world by Condé Nast Traveler — just a couple of weeks after the hotel was named to “The It List” for new hotels in the world by Travel & Leisure.

Condé Nast Traveler, in a list published late last week, said Life House Nantucket — in an 1830s sea captain’s home 10 minutes outside of town — “nails the balance between cozy hideaway (rooms done in wicker and floral patterns) and see-and-be-seen hangout (two outdoor gardens with firepits and loungers).”

Life House Nantucket is among 69 new hotels, 24 in the United States and Canada, singled out by Condé Nast Traveler, and among 38 chosen by Travel & Leisure in its North America category.

Also on the Travel & Leisure “It List” last month were Martha’s Vineyard properties The Edgartown Inn and Harbor View Hotel, also in Edgartown.

“We are thrilled about the accolades that our properties have received this year,” said Victor DeVita, spokesperson for Life House properties, in an email Monday, noting the group’s Denver hotel also was part of the Condé Nast Traveler and Travel & Leisure lists. “We couldn’t be more excited for what’s to come.”

According to Condé Nast Traveler, its 25th annual “Hot List” is “a story of resilience. … Despite enormous hardship in the travel industry, exceptional properties have continued to open across the globe (nearly a thousand last year in the U.S. alone).”
