Quaint, historic B&B! Rooms are fairly small, but clean and comfortable. The owner is very knowledgeable and can provide lots of valuable information about getting around the island. It is situated just out of the Main Street hustle and bustle and very quiet. The bathroom did leave a little to be desired. The sink was very small and an inconveniently... More

The wife and I just stayed there and found the price and location were superb. Some of the previous reviews are all wet and complaining about very minor gripes. This is a B&B built in 1820 for God's sake! Yes, Haziel the Owner is somewhat of a character, but he is extremely helpful and a real person not afraid to... More

Having lived on Nantucket for a year some time ago, I knew that the costs of staying on the island were prohibitively high. After some calls around, we were originally going to stay at the Nantucket Hostel but they ended up being booked, and recommended the carriage house. We were able to secure a room and the owner Haziel was... More

For the price during the peak season and holidays you can't beat it. Yes it's out dated, yes Haziel is strange but its comfy and walking distance to everything on the island. There's no AC in the carriage house , few places actually have it. Power is super expensive out there, it's just not a necessity. It's a small room... More

We felt this was a crime...charging for a place that is so outdated. Likely hasn't been decorated since the 70's or 80's. Just a shower stall and minuscule sink, stuffy smell. Bed average comfort but sank in the middle a bit. It needs a complete overhaul. Breakfast was adequate.

My wife and i stayed at the Carriage house for one night in August and had a very nice stay. The rates were extremely low compared to the rest of the island and the room was "quaint". It was very hot during our stay and the rooms don't have AC but the temp was just fine at night and wasn't... More

I have three main complaints about this B&B: #! No air conditioning - There is a ceiling fan and a small window fan but with heat and humidity on the island being so high during July and August it was not comfortable being in a room without air. Two small windows in my room which I had to keep open... More

Had a wonderful time at the Carriage House: beautiful rooms, comfortable beds, delicious and healthy homemade breakfast. The location is steps from restaurants and shops downtown as well as an easy walk to the public buses to the various beaches. Host is gracious and very friendly. He is very helpful with recommendations for where to eat and how to get... More

The Carriage House is a quick walk from the ferries and the bustling downtown area, and a pleasant bike-ride to the beaches on the other side of the island. It has small, clean rooms (ours had a private bathroom) and a simple, tasty breakfast of muffins, fruit and cereal. The owner, Haziel, is a bit of a character, but he's... More

Very nice, quaint B&B well-situated in Nantucket.. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast tasty and more than adequate, with excellent home-baked cookies, treats and lemonade available in the afternoon. The Innkeeper has a very practical working knowledge of the island and was most helpful. The price is right compared to other offerings in town. We would love to return!
