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

Oh man, not sure how to write this review. We stayed in the double room family suite and probably wouldn't stay again. Way overpriced for what we got (rooms were so small we could barely walk around the bed) but I guess that's Nantucket? Next time I guess we'll splurge and stay at the Elephant. Seems to be the only... More

We stayed at the Periwinkle Guest House for 2 nights. It's an old house, with small rooms, and reminded me very much of my grandparents house in New England. Our room (8) had a private bath, and two windows for views in 2 directions. The free internet computer was very helpful. The breakfast is continental, but it worked for us.... More

Breakfast was a throw away beds comfortable 100 yards from whaling museum- on the quiet side.. it was fine nothing special but certainly didn't overpay.

Periwiinkle/Scallop Inn is a bed-and-breakfast guest house only few steps from the main downtown area, yet it is very quiet and serene. There is a large back garden with lounge chairs and patio tables for Periwinkle and Scallop Inn guests to use. We stayed four nights at the Scallop Inn. The house is immaculate. They provide free internet access and... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for 4 nights with our 4-month-old baby. While the location is great and the inn itself is very quaint, we were very disappointed by the breakfast. For a place that calls itself a b&b, they should put a little more effort into the breakfast. The "continental breakfast" consisted of Yoplait yogurts, fruit, and... More

Periwinkle is very clean, Sonja keeps the place in tip-top shape. Walking distance to downtown. You can't beat the price of $140.00 for a queen bed and twin bed in the room.
