We stayed at the Martin House Inn for the first time this past weekend for Christmas Stroll. We have stayed at many places on Nantucket over 25 years and this is now our favorite place when we travel without the kids. The attention to detail was so lovely-we arrived to a crackling fire with Christmas music playing and fresh cookies to snack on. The innkeeper Carolyn even helped coordinate several anniversary surprises. The baked breakfast treats every morning were delicious and everything was pristine clean. It was an easy walk to town and restaurants yet still quiet and private for down time. Thank you Martin House Inn for making a special weekend even more memorable:)

This was our third time staying at the Martin House and every time just gets better and better

This year the holiday decorations were just beautiful as were the Inn Keeper and the owner who spent time with many of the guests at the Friday night wine and cheese offering

The Inn has had several improvements not only with interior decorations but the back yard was just amazing with the new gardens and patio we had a great time as usual and all the other guests were so happy, many repeat guests and a few new ones too that said they were already booking their stay for next year Christmas Stroll

To our surprise we received a Christmas gift of one free night stay for a future visit.
If you haven’t yet stayed at the Martin House I would really recommend you do.

Room Tip: All 3exceeded my expectations. We slept like babes. We were family come home. Our room had canopy...

The Martin House Inn is a lovely older home within walking distance of the ferry and the downtown shops and restaurants. Carolyn who manages the property is a welcoming and extremely helpful hostess when planning your time on the island. The rooms are lovely, beds are extremely comfortable and the lines are luxurious! The breakfast each morning provided an assortment of pastry, yogurt, fruit and cereals. The granola was exceptional. The Martin Inn provides time for private moments and meeting new people. Will definitely go back again!

Room Tip: Beds are high and require some dexterity to "climb" up and into. Early evenings are cool...

We love to travel together and it's never easy to satisfy everyone with an older teenager and two younger brothers at an affordable hotel, but this was the perfect set up! Big sister loved her own cozy room upstairs while the boys had a great separate space with a locking connecting door to our spacious master bedroom. The location is perfect to let the kids explore town, and even get food and see movies and theatre on the own. The beaches are all incredible. The water sports amenities from the Inn are great and the staff is warm friendly and so helpful. We are coming back and not just in the summer now that we know the island - hoping for Spring break!

Room Tip: first floor suite with communicating doors is awesome, no need for a car

The Martin House Inn is all you hope for in a B&B. Charming rooms, great location in the heart of Nantucket, wonderful service, a knowledgable host sharing great suggestions on how to spend your time (over a nice glass of wine!). What a wonderful visit and can't wait to go back.
