Just stayed at the White House Inn this past weekend (Sunday-Tuesday). Check in was flawless. The girls at the front desk were very helpful. Showed us to our room on top of the Nantucket Candy Store. We stayed in Room #2 which was perfect for what we needed. There is air conditioning in the room which was great because it... More

I've stayed here three times (three consecutive summers) and it is the same wonderful experience each time. I have stayed in 3 out of the 4 rooms and each one was lovely. While it is very quaint (aren't all B&Bs? Isn't that their charm?), the linens/towels are clean and fresh, the room is immaculately clean, and the service is fantastic.... More

The room was of a decent size and comfortable. Mattress was good quality and bedding was nice. Bathroom is old but clean. It's not high end, but for the price it's a good deal, especially in the summer on Nantucket, when lodging prices at other establishments are borderline price gouging. Alyssa is very pleasant and responsive. The cleaning service is... More

Alyssa was very welcoming, and made us feel right at home. We had room #1 overlooking the main st. Clean & comfortable accomodations. Candy welcome gift a nice touch! Great location / convenient to the center of town. Pretty $$ but that's Nantucket in high season. Bed ok - box spring a bit creaky for the 2 of us. Unexpected... More

I stayed at the Nantucket White House Inn (room #3) a few weekends ago during the Wine Festival. I got a great pre-season rate of $150/night. My room was extremely clean, the bed and furniture were both updated and in very good repair. The bathroom was a bit dated but was also very clean. They also provide a small basket... More

I have been to Nantucket quite a few times, and this time found a lovely old Inn (and candy store) to boot! Located at 48 Centre St (diagonal to the Jarred Coffin House). It's central location was a real treat. So close to all the attractions, docks, food and shopping. It has 4 rooms (yes, only 4 rooms), mine overlooked... More

I recently stayed at thee White House Inn and had a very enjoyable experience. The location couldn't be better because it is right in the middle of town and walking distance to everything of interest. The rooms are large and comfortably furnished and the staff were warm and helpful with tips about the best places to eat or not-to-be-missed experienced.... More

It's difficult to pick what was the best part of our first-ever trip to Nantucket. It's a tossup between the wonderful service and care provided by Alyssa at the White House Inn, the spectacular island of Nantucket itself, or those deadly and delicious candies that were available in the first floor store! They were all great. The Nantucket White House... More

It was my first time visiting Nantucket and I chose to stay at the White House Inn. The Inn itself is in the best location. Walking distance to the stores, restaurants and the harbor. It's a short bike ride to the gorgeous beaches and just convenient to any location. The room I stayed in was the suite. This included the... More

We recently stayed here and had another fantastic experience -- this is now our 4th or 5th time at the inn. Again, the check in experience was great and we were able to leave our bags until the room was ready so we could explore the town! Alyssa was a delight and called when the room was ready. The room...
