Having just read a recent review titled "Perfection," we couldn't agree more. We were delighted with the Anchor Inn. From the start Ann was welcoming, comfortable to talk with, and had good recommendations for restaurants, particular beaches, and other things to do. The location is perfect as it is not in the 'downtown' but is so close that you can... More

I know Nantucket so well I could navigate the streets with my eyes closed. And yet I had no first hand information about the Anchor Inn until my husband and I stayed there last week. What a surprise! It's a lovely antique house a short walk from Main Street and it is quite easy to imagine oneself as not being... More

The hostess was quite rude. When my friend and I checked in, we had an additional friend with us who was staying at another hotel with another group of people. The hostess repeatedly told us that there is a 2 person occupancy. We responded that we were aware of that and that our friend was staying at another Inn with... More

This comment is very upsetting to us. We hope others will read our many other reviews and consider the whole picture. This was July 4th weekend. These two women guests arrived at our inn with two additional women that they invited into their room, with their luggage. We have occupancy limits of only 2 per room, and as an innkeeper... More

Another great stay at the Anchor Inn. Ann is a lovely hostess and even though we had to ride out Hurricane Arthur on the night of 7/4 we were very comfortable, opting to sit on the wonderful enclosed porch, drink wine and play cards. Although there were quite a few branches down around the island, everything was cleaned up at... More

From the first time I talked to Ann on the phone to make reservations I felt welcome. Ann is very kind and helpful. The Inn is so lovely and quaint. Just what we expected to find in Nantucket. Nantucket is so magical and this is the perfect place to stay as it is full of history and charm. A bit... More

Anchor Inn is a very comfortable place to stay. Ann and Dennis were very helpful and personable and made our stay easy. Ann gave us a quick tour at check-in and recommended some things to do during our stay. We were there during the Opera Cup race and watched the rainbow fleet, at her suggestion. The room had everything we... More

If you are looking for old fashioned charm and service, the Anchor Inn is place for you. Beautiful House, well maintained, nice owners, perfect location. Short walk to town and to beaches, but far enough out of town to be quiet.

I have stayed at the Anchor Inn before and every time find it better. This time my daughter and I were greeted by both the owner, who gave us a rundown of where everything was, including refrigerator, insulated bags for use if you had a picnic lunch and beach towels, and by Dennis, who I believe is the manager this...

My wife and I just stayed at the Inn over the 4th. We had a fantastic time. Dennis and the other people at the Inn were very friendly and made us feel right at home. The location is an easy walk to town or the beaches. We will be back.

I was in town on business, but my wife travelled with me so we also had a bit of vacation. The Anchor Inn was a lovely place to stay, Dennis was extremely hospitable and helpful ... and the location was walking distance from the center of town. We were pleased with the accommodations. Definitely recommended!
