This Nantucket inn consists of 15 rooms all bearing the names of Nantucket whaling vessels that sailed over a century ago. Rooms can be reserved with either private or shared bath facilities. Many of our rooms form two bedroom suites connected by a common private bath most suitable for friends and families- a great way to economize. Our King & Larger Queen rooms are spacious with double dressers and relaxing chairs. Our rooms with a single, a double or Queen bed are smaller yet intimate and offer cozy privacy after a day at one of our Nantucket beaches. Rooms using shared hallway baths have their own in-room sink.

We also have one three-bedroom suite set apart from the rest of the inn, overlooking Fair street and the stunning stained glass windows of St. Paul's Church. It features a King bedroom with bath and two singles with common private bath.
