I visited in November, not the primary season for this establishment. First of all, the heat is centrally located and the rooms do not have air conditioning. This makes the temperature in the rooms equivalent to sleeping in your garage. At one point the windows are wide open to cool it down and at another I found myself sleeping with... More

Blown away at the courtesy and service in the classic Nantucket Inn. That alone is enough for us to book here again. Horrendous weather to end a fine Christmas Stroll. Cold, gusting winds and ferries cancelled all day. The Jared Cofgin House was to close for be season but remained open just in case any of their gusts didn't make... More

We go to Nantucket often. When we are on the island we always preferred to stay here. It is a historic property downtown. Convenient to everything you'd want to be close to. The rooms are well appointed, clean and the service is excellent. The restaurant and bar are small but high-quality. We just love this place. Perhaps the only thing... More

Very helpful and friendly staff and a hotel with character and charm in an excellent position in the town all make this a pleasant place to stay. My room was on the small side but clean and well-furnished, with a comfortable bed. There is a bar attached to the hotel, a good place to sit outside and relax. The breakfast... More

Classic, beautiful building with perfect location. Walking distance to everything in town. Did not dine at Nantucket Prime but did try out the outdoor patio/bar and the drinks and setting were fabulous. The room was as expected, however 2 major gripes- bathroom is very outdated and the bed was extremely creaky/noisy- I woke myself up with every turn. We used... More

The "JC" as it is called by the locals is touted as the oldest building in Nantucket. If that is true, then it is has been very well maintained and is a real gem. The room we stayed in on the third floor was very comfortable and relaxing. Since this historic building has been converted in a number of ways... More

My husband and I went to Nantucket as our mini-moon excited to stay in what looked like a quaint bed and breakfast. After reading some of the reviews we were hesitant but decided to go for it anyway.

I just returned from my first trip to Nantucket. This "Bed and Breakfast" was staffed by perfectly nice people. However, do not get a single room. I was there on business and I literally have stayed in a tent in the High Sierra's that was bigger. I don't mind a single bed but I had to use the table next... More

First time for us in Nantucket. Been to Martha's Vineyard, heard this island was cozier and friendlier. The Jared Coffin House staff is indeed friendly and accommodating. We chatted several times a day at the front desk to get recommendations on where to dine on a given day, what to see, etc. They were all spot on. The House has... More
