My daughter & I stayed at the Periwinkle/Scallop Inn for 10 days & it was delightful. We have been returning back here for several years & we have never been disappointed. The breakfasts are a perfect balance with Wicked Island Bakery muffins, blueberry yogurt parfaits, fresh strawberries & blueberries, coffee/orange juice each morning followed by homemade chocolate chips cookies as...

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

My husband and I and our friends had the opportunity to stay at the Periwinkle B&B for an extended weekend. Our experience was wonderful from start to finish. There was great care taken by the staff to provide personal care to our stay. A call was placed to us on the morning of our arrival from the manager Nancy to... More

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

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
