Spotless historic inn that is walking distance from the ferry and downtown. Comfortable bed, big towels, pleasant breakfast, and charming staff. We walked to restaurants, museums, art galleries, a cello concert at the Nantucket Music Association, and charming boutiques. Intend to re-book next visit in the fall.

Thank you Gail...my wife and I extended our stay for a night and we were pleasantly surprised with everything that was the Periwinkle. Our Kingsized bed was very comfortable, great pillows, clean as a whistle..close to downtown and the ferry...nice kitchen area for light fare...they key here is that the house was well maintained, clean and very pleasant staff.

Was on the island for work and The Periwinkle was walking distance from the ferry and nicely located away from the busy town center, which made for a very relaxing stay. The owner was very helpful with advice and the room was comfortable.

I had the good fortune to stay at the Periwinkle earlier this month for a friend's wedding. The accommodation although smaller than you would normally expect, was clean and tastefully decorated. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and made you feel very welcome. A light continental breakfast is available consisting of muffins, yogurt and fresh fruit. Coffee and Tea... More

Love, love, love these quaint Inn's! The innkeepers made me feel like an old friend on my return to this lovely island. Can't beat walking out your door on Water Street and being less than a minute to all the action in town. Nantucket Island has old world charm with cobblestone streets and historical influences everywhere. This is my second... More

Stayed at the Perwinkie B&B overnight mid-week for a photo shoot of the island. Could not have been at a better place - the innkeeper was over the top accommodating, extremely kind, and made the stay wonderful! The staff there was also wonderful, very kid and helpful. The location is perfect, just steps from Main street and the town area,... More

We were in Nantucket for a wedding and stayed at the Periwinkle 3 nights at the end of August. This charming Inn is near the Whaling Museum and very convenient to all the great shops, restaurants and bars in the downtown area. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, the rooms very quaintly decorated, though on the small side, though... More

Periwinkle is located a block from the Whaling Museum, two blocks from the ferry. A quick walk to town. Actually, IN town. So you'll hear the double toot of the ferry as it backs away from the island. A sad sound. You'll also hear: the rumble of cars passing over the cobblestones just outside; happy revelers on the sidewalk on... More
