My husband & I stayed here May 23-26. Although I wanted to stay here initially, the price made us look elsewhere and we booked our once-in-a-lifetime, long-awaited trip to Nantucket to stay at The Periwinkle - a b&b. The Periwinkle had lost our reservation in the system, and even though we showed them our confirmation email, they could not accommodate... More

The Inn is a historical building on the beautiful island of Nantucket! While obviously old, it is very well appointed, and extremely comfortable. My husband and I were enthusiastically welcomed by Paula Slater, Innkeeper, and from the moment that we arrived, through check out, she was both very nice, and very accommodating. The other girls at the desk also were:... More

My wife and I stayed here to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary and were completely satisfied. The innkeeper Paula and her entire staff went out of their way to make us feel special at every turn. Their suggestions and helpful hints went a long way to making our experience a special one.

After two nights I was informed I would be changing into a less expensive room( as I had requested and had planned to move). I than realized that my confirmation stated that I would stay in the first room for three nights and not two. I was told the hotel had booked my room for the next guest and knew... More

This is a beautiful hotel right in the historic district. I have to praise Paula for the warmest welcome I have ever received at a hotel. We arrived quite early and they stored our bags and upgraded the room to a king. We went mid week and it was not crowded at all. Paula suggested we take Gail's tour and... More

We recently stayed at the Jared Coffin House for two nights for a pre-season getaway. The hotel (at this time of year) was very reasonably priced and well appointed. We had a lovely room with a king sized bed and huge walk-in closet. The staff were polite but not obtrusive. The hotel could not have been more convenient. A quick... More

We checked in at the Jared Coffin House late Friday night for a weekend stay. This was my first time staying at JCH and if you like New England charm this is YOUR hotel on the island. The wallpaper and decor is quintessential New England and the rooms are cozy enough for two - I was really surprised at how... More

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
