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. Coming down to the... More

The Sherburne Inn is such a great location, within walking distance of the ferry and on a very quiet street, making sleeping easy and sitting on the outside porch pleasant and without a lot of neighborhood noises. The Inn is tastefully done, meaning not over done or cluttered, and it has lots of special interior features. We walked in to... More

Stayed here for the Nantucket Holiday Stroll in December. The Inn is in a great location...very close to restaurants and all of the downtown area. We definitely missed having an area to just sit and relax aside from our room. There is a small living room area (with just a small love seat/couch) but it is also where the innkeepers... More

This review is a great reminder to me about the importance of checking in with our guests often during their stay to be sure all needs are met and that they feel comfortable and well looked after.

Stayed 2 nights at the Sherburne Inn. It was the perfect location to explore the island. The Inn itself is classic Nantucket. Highlights included the breakfast in the basket each morning, the extremely friendly staff, as well as the bed. TIP: Reserve Room #8 - "King of the Hill". Not only is the King bed fantastic but this room as... More
