Exquisitely developed and managed bed and breakfast!

"History, charm, elegance and the warmest, most welcoming staff we've ever encountered. Walking distance to downtown Nantucket. Beautifully appointed rooms and a charming outdoor eating/relaxing area. All in all a wonderful experience and would strongly recommend to others visiting Nantucket. We will certainly stay there when we return in the future!"
