Get ready to be transported to a bygone era as you write your Nantucket love story at the 29 Fair Street Inn and Bistro. You, your family, and your wedding guests will be enchanted by an authentic Nantucket experience, in what was once a private family home built in 1709. Unscathed by time, the original staircases, barely big enough for modern-sized feet, rough-hewn wood beams and fireplaces are still intact, creating a welcoming atmosphere unlike any other.
Once known as the George Bunker house, 29 Fair was built by his son William, one of the 10 original Nantucket deed holders and partners known as ‘full-share men’, the British ship captains who were revolted against by the 12 ‘half-share men’, a group of artisans and tradesmen who challenged what they believed to be an undemocratic approach to governance.
For those who truly love history, 29 Fair is the preeminent wedding experience on Nantucket, because the Inn and bistro are like a museum you can touch, feel, and make yourself at home in. Formerly The Woodbox, a much-beloved breakfast niche, Michelin Star Chef Joseph Keller left the helm to international celebrity chef, producer, and author Pedro Alaniz, star of Sabores del Mundo, a popular international cooking show featured on ABC, Cuneca Vision, PBS, Univision, Telemundo, and Estrella TV.
When Chef Alaniz is not cooking up a ‘perfect storm’ on Nantucket, you can find him on TV creating his delicious international recipes, filmed in settings around the world, from exotic locales including Mexico, Asia, South America, and Europe.unleashing its transformation into an exotic culinary hub for both year-round and seasonal residents of Nantucket.
