The Carlisle Inn was a great location for our trip to Nantucket. The owner was very helpful with ideas for things to do on our stay and even drove us to the ferry when we left. We had 4 guests and this was one of the few B&Bs that could accommodate us and we are glad they did.

My husband and I stayed in the Sconset suite and were there for 3 nights as we were attending a wedding. We had an excellent experience. Heather is friendly, helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed the experience of being in a historic building furnished with antiques, and with stories connected to it. Our room was very comfortable and clean. We were... More

Stayed at The Carlisle House Inn for three nights recently as my husband was taking part in the Nantucket Triathlon. It was situated in a perfect location for the ferry terminal, town, restaurants and Jetties Beach where the triathlon was being held. The Inn was clean and comfortable and the Innkeeper was polite and friendly. The continental breakfasts were delicious.... More

I spent 4 nights at the inn on a short vacation with my daughter. It was only a ten minute walk from the ferry and close to downtown Nantucket. The room was good for us and the price was reasonable. Continental breakfast included and a nice garden to enjoy.

The Carlisle House feels like staying in your own home. I've stayed here three times now, and it's always a great experience. Rooms are cozy and comfortable, breakfast is fresh, local and delicious, and the garden is my favorite place in the world to enjoy a quiet drink and a good book. The location is excellent - just a couple... More

I recently stayed with eight other girlfriends at the Carlisle house for a long weekend trip to Nantcket. We took advantage of the 2nd and 3rd floor suites and a double bedroom, which proved to be more than enough space for all of us. The rooms were bright and clean, and more spacious than I'd expect from an Inn in... More

Great place to stay if you gasp when you see other Nantucket hotel prices! Staff is warm and accommodating. Rooms are small, but that's part of the charm. Wonderful continental breakfast in the a.m. Tricky thing is the shared bath, although we seemed to have it to ourselves!

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your experience at The Carlisle House Inn! We feel that we offer a fantastic value with our affordable rates, perfect location and great service. This guest stayed in our smallest and most affordable double room; it's the only double with shared bath (it shares with two single rooms). We are glad that you... More

A wonderful place to stay and experience all Nantucket has to offer. Quiet, very clean, comfortable rooms, and a beautiful outdoor patio area. The owner was readily available and always there to lend advice on a local place to eat or visit. This is our second time to Nantucket but our first visit to this Inn. We will be back!

Just recently stayed at the Carlisle House Inn for what is the craziest weekend of the year, Figawi! We had the Mataket suite which has a queen bed and a room with a pull out sofa. The house was charming and the owner Heather was friendly. Our bathroom had recently been remodeled and it looked amazing! The bathroom is detached... More
