After walking on the beach dotted with snow, it was delightful to return to the warm and cozy inn. Beautifully appointed bedroom, complete with fireplace. Heather, owner and innkeeper, made me feel welcomed like a member of her extended family of guests. I highly recommend the Carlisle House Inn.

I stayed at this lovely inn for two weeks during a recent business trip. Nantucket is expensive but this gem of a B&B is very reasonably priced considering its proximity to town, the bus line and Jetties Beach. For most of my stay I was in the Tuckernuck room on the third floor of this old whale captains home. The... More

We chose the Carlisle House because it was near the ferry and would allow a one night stay in September. The historic house needs modernization. For example, there were few channels on the older TV. The continental breakfast was adequate. It could have been a more charming experience.

So this is my second time staying with Heather and the great staff at the Carlisle house Inn. The Carlisle Inn has the most beautiful classical Nantucket Inn with a combination of old world living and new world conveniences. I stayed last in the spring and this visit was in September. Check in was very accommodating as I had a... More

My husband and I just spent two nights at The Carlisle House Inn while spending a fall weekend on Nantucket. The location is perfect…you can walk/bike from Steamship fast ferry, explore the town, shops and restaurants and access the bike paths easily from the Inn. The innkeeper, Heather, was extremely welcoming and helpful. The fall is a magnificent time to... More

Wonderful abode far enough away from town noise but close enough to be right there. Heather the owner is a dream, baking wonderful pastries every morning and home made bread. The beds are so soft and the pillows are as well. An added bonus is the outdoor area where you can bring your own drink and food and picnic if... More

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
