A friendly, welcoming place. Our room was clean, comfortable and convenient. The one very minor issue was that the wi-fi in our room at the back of the building was spotty. Easily solved by taking the laptop to the inviting sitting area on the second...More

And we will certainly look forward to your return. The WiFi can be a challenge but I think it’s an island thing. We are doing our best to tweek our service to get clear signals throughout the house.

What a wonderful, friendly, clean place to stay in the old part of the town. It's central location makes it easy to walk or bike to wherever you want to go. With a bedroom and living room we feel at home. Very spacious. Love this...More

Thank you for your kind words. We do try to make our house feel like home, one that you will want to return to. At any time of the year, there are many places within walking distance that make for a memorable Nantucket experience.

Ian and Jen will be very pleased to hear that you so enjoyed your stay with us. They have a combined wealth of knowledge about the island and all that it has to offer. We look forward to your next visit!

Reviewed 24 May 2017

This is a charming low key place to stay, one of the best bargains on the island. It's not a regular B&B -- you receive coupons for seven different restaurants/cafes downtown -- so if that's what you're looking for, this is not it. However, if...More

Thank you very much for your review. When our parents ran the house, they developed relationships with guests who returned for many years and are doing so still. This second generation of Carl's running the house truly hope to be able to have a new...More

Traveling to Nantucket off season for business can be a challenge. Much is closed and the weather and ferry crossings can be iffy. Just back from a recently completed trip I wanted to compliment the Inn Keeper for being so helpful! The boat crossings that...More
