Groups and Wedding Parties
The Inn is especially well-suited for large groups, such as wedding parties or family reunions. The Inn can hold 26 guests in various configurations of adjoining or private rooms. Our three bedroom suite is a favorite for brides in particular as it affords a quiet and idyllic setting before walking across the street for the ceremony.
What sets the Barnacle Inn apart from so many others on Nantucket is that it is situated well back from the street. Many island inns are located curbside but the Barnacle has a large front patio, overhanging front and side porches, as well as a beautiful side garden area with lawn chairs and tables. This design is perfect for family groups to mingle, enjoy a candle lit table at dusk, or have a bottle of wine and cheese under a summer moon. For groups that rent the entire Inn, catered raw bars and brunches work very well on the patios which can be tented if need be. We have handled many wedding groups over the years and with our close proximity to all the island churches, the Barnacle Inn is a perfect choice for wedding guests or bridal parties.
For group vacations, connecting rooms can save expense. A 2 room connecting suite can save couples or singles as much as 20%. Another affordable option is a shared bath with bath and shower down the hall. A sink and hand towels are set in each of those rooms without private bath.
