Like a well-fit Oxford or good pair of chinos, there's a reason certain styles earn the term "classic." Take a cue from your wardrobe and make sure you're well-prepped for this week's Escape to Nantucket.

Suit up for a monogrammed (read: personalized) two-night stay for one in a room with a twin bed and a shared bath ($145), or a two-night stay for two in a room with two twin beds ($210) or two full-size beds ($225), both with a shared bath, at Martin House Inn, a resplendent mansion built in 1803 by sea captain and gentleman Nathaniel Sherman in the island's historic district.

Classic touches and authentic period pieces in each room will make you want to kick off your wellies upon your arrival, when you'll be greeted with a bottle of wine in a private sanctuary where Old World luxury meets modern comfort. On Fridays, toast your shipshape stay with complimentary wine and cheese in the inn's main room.

Loosen your ribbon belt for included daily breakfasts in the antique dining room and savor freshly baked muffins, breads, and pastries; fresh fruit; and homemade granola. Or take your treats out to the white-washed veranda, the chaises in the backyard, or the stately widow's walk, where you can enjoy a peaceful spell reading or merely soak up the natural beauty of the colorful gardens or Nantucket's historic harbor.

Lace up your Sperrys and stroll through the town center, where you can tour an old mill house, or sail into Downyflake for a nibble of its famous homemade doughnuts and blueberry pancakes. A must-try according to locals is the Nantucket Chowder Company, where you can taste a bowl of the soup that has impressed even Martha Stewart.

Come evening, you'll want to put on your university jacket but loosen your bow tie with a visit to Cisco Brewers—a brew pub that's become a staple in the live-music scene, and where Escapees are invited to participate in a half-price beer-and-wine tasting. And there's no need to check your Rolex—late noon checkout is a given.

Get ready to pop your collar and scuff up those loafers—it's time you got away to paint the town Nantucket red.

  • "One of the lower-priced B&Bs in town but... one of the most stylish, with a formal parlor, dining rooms, and spacious side porch. This historic 1803 mariner's home is kept shipshape; and since your innkeeper is an expert baker, it always smells yummy."
