The Veranda House very well may be an excellent establishment as evidenced by their supposedly impeccable reputation and 22 positive "family reviews" on Trip Advisor. That said, I just attempted to book a 4 day vacation for my wife and 2 year old daughter. Shortly after submitting my online reservation request with payment I was called by the general manager...

We are honored that you chose to spend your vacation time with us. However, we could not accept your reservation which you made online because you planned to bring your 2 year old child. Our policy, clearly... More

We went in late August, peak season and enjoyed a wonderful 3 night stay - beautiful rooms, Great staff and perfect location for centre of Nantucket. Rooms are beautifully decorated to a very high standard and the entire hotel far exceeds what the website shows!

This is a lovely B & B a short walk from the ferry dock. A small breakfast of fruits and pastries is included with the stay and a daily special is also available (waffles, crepes, etc, for some reason never an egg item). At dusk you can enjoy a complimentary glass of wine in the garden, really nice. The rooms... More

We took a little trip to New England to enjoy the fall colors. Too much rain spoiled the view, but the Veranda House and the Staff saved the day. What a gem this place is. Great location, great breakfast, and every detail is just top notch. The Staff is the icing on the cake. Sometimes you have this or that,... More

The staff, Hillary, Hannah and Nathalia were wonderful from the moment we made our reservations, very helpful rec. restaurants and places, and making dinner reservations.The rooms are lovely, not large, but very comfortable and great beds! Rooms on the upper 2 floors have... More

I'll start by saying that I am not a B & B traveler. I like luxury hotels but you have no choice on Nantucket. I must say that the nicest thing about this B & B are the young people that work there! They are incredibly solicitous and add a great deal to your stay. The location is excellent. Walk... More

We just returned from a four day trip to Nantucket for our friend's 50th birthday. All five couples stayed at The Veranda House and, I must say, every one of us would gladly return to this great island and just as great hotel. Like most of Nantucket, the hotel is in an old, historical building; however, décor is more minimalist/chic.... More

The hotel is very quaint & cozy. The staff is exceptionally friendly & very helpful in making reservations for dinners around town. Centrally located in a beautiful neighborhood. My room was clean & comfortable with great views of the harbor & areas around town. The patio & garden area were beautiful as well.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Veranda house with 4 other couples. I cannot say enough positive things. Veranda House is a large B&B, but with a very cozy feel. The building itself is somewhat historic, and fits perfectly with a trip to Nantucket. Each room (I saw 5 of them) is very unique, but all had very... More
