Beautiful rooms and a lovely atmosphere. I had a second floor room with a four-poster bed and a couch. Bright in the day and quiet at night (air-conditioner provided the "white moise"). Comfortable patio and lush grounds. Convenient to town. I look forward to returning soon

The new innkeeper Lisa was fabulous, I had just had a hip replacement and was given a room on the first floor. Lisa was extremely helpful. The morning muffins were delish, as well as the scones! I travel a great deal and normally don't like B & B's -- but this was a delightful experience.

Came back after 7 years, it is still a very comfortable place to stay at a very reasonable price. Breakfast is very good, although limited in variety. I would suggest some maintenance, our room # 26 had some age related minor issues.

We booked a 2 day special via Living Social. When we arrived at about 3pm, there was no one on site. Our room was open and the key was on the bureau. The place is very clean and well located, easily walkable to the downtown area. However, the absence of any staff when we arrived portended a serious lack of... More

I've stayed at the Martin House Inn at least 10 or 12 times over the past 7 years. It's my home away from home on Nantucket. I love that the inn is an old sea captain's inn and that it's on a pretty, quiet street and an easy walk away from the center of town. I also like the reasonable... More

I have stayed at the Inn a few times and absolutely love the sense of humor and great service offered by the Innkeeper, Skye. She is quite the baker too! Wow, try the scones. I have also found the rates to be very reasonable in the summer compared to other Nantucket B&Bs.

The Martin House was an excellent inn for a getaway. Perfect location, clean comfortable rooms, and a superb innkeeper. Skye was very personable, informative and patient in answering all our questions and her baking was an added bonus. We will definitely return. My only recommendation would be a tv in the rooms.

This was my second visit to the Martin House and it hasn't changed a bit in two years - still the welcoming, comfortable place I remembered. Skye is a wonderful innkeeper who goes out of her way to make everyone's stay the vacation they wished for. Highly recommended!

I had a very relaxing stay and felt very welcome in this idyllic inn. Skye called me while I was driving, just to check that I was coming late in the evening so that she would wait up. (I had implied weeks earlier that although I had paid for the night, I wasn't certain that I was coming before the... More

A great two-day stay for a girls' get-a-way. All the previous comments about proximity to the ferry and restaurants are true. It takes a certain personality to be successful as an innkeeper and Skye has it--showing great patience in answering the same questions numerous times, making all visitors feel welcome, and baking up a storm. Her recommendations on walks, activities,... More
