You know it’s a sure sign of impending spring when deals for stays on Nantucket start popping up. They’re having a couple at Century House, reportedly the oldest continually operating guesthouse on the island, one that’s been a lodging establishment since 1833.

Nantucket in a Bucket” runs from May 19-June 19, where you get a deluxe room for $295 a night or superior room for $225, both Sunday-Thursday only. It includes lodging, breakfast and a bottle of champagne and box of chocolates in your room.

“Nantucket Festive Fantasy: Bicycle Built for Two” gets you a tandem bike to use to peddle around the miles of the island’s bike trails, lodging and breakfast. Rates are the same as in the first deal. Deadline to book for both is March 20, and both require a two-night minimum stay. Prices do not include taxes and fees.

The average daily temperature in Nantucket for that time is about 65 degrees. Not exactly summer but given the winter we’ve had, we’ll take it.
