We enjoyed our stay at this pleasant inn at the edge of town. Being near Main and Broad Streets in the center of the Nantucket and also near Jetty Beach next to the harbor, The Carlisle House Inn is in a wonderful location. Small, narrow cobblestones streets near by (like Ash Street) offer opportunities for observing some of the beautiful... More

We had a great Labor Day weekend at the Carlisle House Inn! The location was excellent (3 min walk into town), the room was clean and the inn keeper Heather was very welcoming. We loved the wine and cheese tasting on Saturday night as we got to meet other guests and drink some good wine and try out some tasty... More

We spent 4 nights at The Carlisle House Inn and it was a perfect place for us. It is well-situated in Nantucket and Heather, the inn-keeper, is very helpful and gracious and went out of her way to make us feel at home and give us information to enhance our stay. We loved every minute!

We have visited Nantucket every summer for many years, and the place we stay at most often is the Carlisle House Inn. The location is excellent for dining, shopping, beaching, and sightseeing. Heather, the innkeeper, is so accommodating. We've stayed in different rooms and have brought friends with us who stayed in other rooms, and I can say that all... More

Everything about The Carlisle House made for a GREAT vacation! Heather has created such a relaxing, inviting retreat for vacationers to a busy island. From the plush towels provided for the beach to the homemade baked goods each morning it is a 5 star experience all around. Be sure to ask for her banana muffins in particular :) I wouldn't... More

We recently stayed at the Carlisle House as part of an overnighter trip to Nantucket. The innkeeper, Heather, was so helpful in putting together not just a stay at the Carlisle House, but a whole experience for us. She worked with my admittedly quirky requests for, for example, champagne delivered to the room late at night while we were out,... More

Although we stayed at the Inn through a category 1 hurricane, it was still a great time. Our hostess Heather never got frazzled or lost her composure through wind, rain and a black out. The place is charming and clean and a great location to the wondercul town center. Breakfast every morning on the porch was delicious! I travelled with... More

We stayed at the Carlisle House Inn in the Tuckernuck Room for our first visit to Nantucket. This vacation was completely magical and I feel like Nantucket is an absolute dream! The Tuckernuck Room was cozy, and most importantly, an excellent value for Nantucket in July! We had our own bathroom, which was a must. The room was small, but... More

I spent one month for business in this beautiful classical inn and Heather the Inn Keeper made me feel like family (without the chores of course;-). Check in and checkout was a breeze. when I forgot some luggage she made sure I got it. that is excellent service. The rooms varied in size but all were decorated with a historic... More
