Had 2 rooms at the Sherburne Inn this past weekend and LOVED every second of our time there. Sherburne Inn is everything you want from a bed+breakfast: spotlessly clean, effortlessly charming, but also feeling a bit updated and not at all old or tired, as some B&B's can walk the line of. Sherburne Inn ticks all of these boxes: rooms... More

As we holiday on Nantucket every summer, my wife and I have always chosen the Sherburne Inn as our lodging of choice. Perfectly situated on Gay Street, the inn is away from the traffic, both auto and pedestrian, but just minutes to downtown. Accommodations are spotless, clean and welcoming. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Madelon, who informed us that... More

Karen and Madelon made our stay at The Sherburne Inn lovely. The personal service at this charming inn is terrific. The Inn itself is beautiful old Nantucket, close enough to walk to everything but outside the craziness that Nantucket in the summer can be. The garden and parlor are beautiful common areas with the wine and cheese in the afternoon... More

We had a relaxing stay at this beautiful, quiet inn which is right off the historic district. Madeline is a great hostess always available with recommendations for things to do and great restaurants. The morning breakfast with homemade granola was a nice bonus.

My husband and I stayed for three nights (Monday - Thursday) in Room 5 ("Exclusively Romantic") to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We were warmly welcomed by Karen and Madelon. They both took time during our stay to suggest activities for us on this, our first visit to the island. It was clear to us that they both love the... More

We stayed here over the very raucous Figawi weekend, but were able to escape the drunken madness outside at this little hideaway. Everything in town is walking distance. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the breakfast baskets delivered to your room in the morning are a nice touch. Prices were elevated because of the dates, but I would be... More

Our second stay here and it was nice. We enjoyed having a balcony attached to our room. The Inn is quiet yet conveniently located to town. We found it clean and comfortable. Everyone we dealt with was pleasant. The only drawback for me was when ... we chose to "sleep in" until 9-ish. When we went downstairs to make a... More

I am appalled and full of apologies for the morning coffee service you experienced on your recent visit. It's been a very long standing tradition at the Sherburne Inn to have coffee/tea/cocoa service available all morning long for our guests to leisurely enjoy as often as they'd like. Training our new summer staff will continue with focused attention to the... More

Perfect location, quiet but close to everything. Inn keeper is welcoming and knowledgeable. Accommodations are very comfortable, lovely linens and decor. The breakfast baskets are my favorite. Each morning at 8 am, a basket is delivered to your door with fruit, juice and a warm muffin or bread. Will return as often as we can.

Right up the street from the ferry, restaurants and everything Nantucket. The rooms are perfectly decorated and the breakfasts were delightful. The Inn Keeper was so helpful and welcoming. A great value !

This was my first stay at the Sherburne In, but my fourth time attending the Nantucket Daffodil Festival. How could I have missed this perfect place? Both Susan and Sharon were warm, welcoming and accommodating. I came with my youngest sister, and our room was just beautiful. The morning breakfast basket was nothing short of delicious.
