My wife and I try to go every year. Cozy, hospitable friendly and convenient. The negative reviews must come from folks who issue negative reviews everywhere they go. Robert in Virginia

It was surprisingly difficult to find reasonably-priced accommodations for a family with children for a long July weekend on Nantucket. We resorted to a Nantucket hotel service to find Chestnut House and made our final decision based on TripAdvisor reviews. This is a quaint old house with a lot of character in a very convenient location. If you want the... More

My parents and I stayed at the Chestnut House last July, and it was absolutely adorable. The Interior was very quaint and old-fashioned; it reminded me of my grandmother's house. The woman who owns the Chestnut House is very sweet and helpful, though her daughter who works as a maid there was quite bitter and cold. We stayed in a... More

I just returned from spending 5 days at the Chestnut House in Nantucket Mass. What a wonderful experience. The large two room suite with large private bath is extremely well appointed and sunny. A perfect Inn for romance- get away or family vacation. Our Inn Keepers Jeannette and Jerry Carl were perfect- knowing the environment; the events on the Island... More

We just spent 1 night at The Chestnut House and from the moment we walked through the door we knew we had made a poor choice. The house literally stunk. That old musty smell. Two of us had headaches much of the time we were there due to the smell. The house is decorated like your great, great Aunt Edna's.... More

If you're going to Nantucket and want to be in town this is definitely the best place. Central to everything, beautifully decorated by artisans and hosts, Jeanette and Jerry Carl (ask to see his rugs) you couldn't find more gracious hosts on the island. Comfortable, cozy and affordable. It's a home away from home. Can't wait to go back. Don't... More

This was our second stay at the Chestnut House and I hope not our last. When I called to make the reservation Jeannette remembered us from our previous visit several years ago which made us feel so welcome. They're located center city and just a few minutes from the main street and the harbor. We came by ferry without a... More

After traveling over 3000 miles to get there we found the owner to be unwelcoming. Would not return as we constantly felt we were walking on eggshells. The owner "Jeannette" showed a complete lack of interest in ensuring the comfort of her guests. Not reccomended for families.

I've been visiting Nantucket for more than 25 years and my absolute favorite place to stay is Chesnut House. The owners are gracious and the location is excellent--just steps away from everything. I believe now they mostly have 2 room suites with private baths. The house is decorated with original art painted by the owner. It's such a popular place,... More
