If you're looking for a 200yr old inn, you can find many on the island. If you're looking for great service and a low-key stay, this is the place. I'm just going to list perks; I have nothing bad to say about the Anchor Inn! Ann, the owner, is lovely and informative. She gave me running routes and helped us... More

I have been coming to Nantucket for many years and came across the Anchor Inn as a girlfriend and I searched for a last minute room during the Yoga Festival in mid-July (high season). We were able to book a room and had a wonderful (too short!) stay at Anchor Inn. Charles was gracious and welcoming, and the entire staff... More

This was my idea of the perfect Nantucket B&B, clean comfortable rooms, a cozy common room to relax in, lovely porch for morning coffee and muffins and nice patio outside. What more could one need. There are tv's for those that must have them, but we were there for four nights and never turned it on. Ann and Charles were... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about your visit with us at Anchor Inn. It is our 33rd season as innkeepers here and we do not request Trip Advisor reviews, so it is fun to read your lovely unsolicited comments about your experience. We enjoyed your visit. Thank you. Ann More

Traditional, rustic, and cozy B&B. Wonderful owner, Ann, great location, very comfortable, inviting spot. Would absolutely come back. Room was quiet and clean. My only suggestion for improvement - bed was just okay, mattress was a little too soft, and pillows were not comfortable - too hard. Down pillows or synthetic down pillows would be a big improvement. Continental breakfast... More

Thank you for this 5 star rating and your lovely comments. We do offer a selection of bed pillows,... just let us know your preference next time. We get many compliments on our comfortable beds, but we realize everyone has a personal preference, so we have a bed board if needed. Looking forward to your return. Regards, Ann More

The Anchor Inn is a short walk from both ferry terminals. We came in on the Hy-line, dropped our bags off at the inn, as we arrived well before check-in, and headed out for lunch and a good explore of the center of town. We liked being on the edge of town, where it isn't so noisy, yet everything was... More

Perfect Location to main street. The house has so much history and very charming. Charles, I want your muffin recipe. This B&B has a cute courtyard for coffee and breakfast outside. Ann went the extra step to secure our tour arrangements for us and then travel plans back to the ferry. We would love to come back someday. Joan and... More

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
