Real estate firm Blue Flag Partners announced its acquisition of The Beachside on Nantucket, a 94-key hotel on North Beach Street in Nantucket, Massachusetts. Originally built in 1966, The Beachside encompasses an expansive 3.5 -acre campus in Nantucket’s Brant Point neighborhood and features one of just five hotel pools on the entire island.
The Beachside joins Blue Flag’s growing portfolio of hotels on Nantucket, which is currently comprised of the Faraway Nantucket on Center street (the former Roberts Collection), Life House, Nantucket on Cliff Road (the former Century House), Summer House at Fair Street, Pineapple Inn on Hussey Street, Hawthorn House on Chestnut Street and the former Star of the Sea Hostel on Western Avenue. Blue Flag also owns and is in process of reimagining a master plan for the Kelley House hotel campus in Edgartown, Massachusetts.
Continuing their long-standing partnership, Blue Flag has hired New York-based boutique hotel operator Life House to manage the day-to-day operations of the hotel. Together, the duo have built a reputation as caring stewards, working to balance the historic nature and local impact of each of their hotels while also breathing new life into select properties through locally-rooted design and storytelling.
