We have lived in MA since 2000 however this was our first trip to Nantucket. We went there to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary. Staying at the Periwinkle gave us a glimpse of history meeting modern day. The historic charm of the original home was evident in the look and feel of it. Yes to some people the rooms might... More

Thank you for your kind words! Especially for the noticing the "makeup" towels - the owner's brilliant idea - and the yogurt parfaits. We hope to see you again soon. More

I was NEVER a Bed and Breakfast kind of person until my stay at the Periwinkle Guest House.The room felt so homey like staying at Grandma's house. The rooms have private bath which makes it nice. Everyone was so friendly. It was very clean and they have a great continental breakfast which included fresh baked muffins, fresh fruit with yogert,... More

We stayed at the Periwinkle Inn for one night after a wedding to enjoy the island one more day. This was our first visit and it won't be our last. We had room 9 and although the rooms are small, it had everything you needed. Private bath, TV, wireless internet and a wonderful backyard. And breakfast was delicious. You may... More

This place is a delight. It has tremendous charm and character. I stayed in a twin room on the third floor, which was very small and quaint and cozy, with a television and a lovely dormer window which looked out to the harbor and got direct sun in the morning, as well as bird visitors. There's a shared bathroom and... More

After some very severe hiccups upon our arrival on Nantucket, we found The Periwinkle. Its awesome! It's a very smart and lovely B&B with many great points not the least of which is a very central yet quiet location. Built after a fire, the building is typical of the period. Smaller rooms, mostly with private bath, great furnishings and not... More

When you consider the ridiculous prices that some of the larger inns are commanding night for room, it makes me wonder why anyone would stay anywhere else. This is exactly what one would imagine when they thought of a charming Nantucket inn. Immaculate, lovingly decorated, with attention to detail, such as fine quality sheets, and a very accommodating staff. It's... More

Spent three nights on Nantucket Island at the start of a fall foliage tour through New England and found this charming little place about five minutes' walk from the ferry landing. To be precise - we stayed in the annex, which goes by the name of "Scallop Inn", but there doesn't seem to be too much difference between the two... More

Once again, we are very happy to have chosen the Periwinkle Inn on N. Water St., Nantucket. This small B&B is no frills, clean, well managed (Anne Marie is a gem) and located in the heart of Nantucket Town. We spent most of our late-summer days touring the island on our bikes. Bartlett Farm and Cisco Brewery are not to... More
