Lovely boutique hotel - perfect for couples. Carl, the manager is so helpful - he pointed us in the direction of some great new restaurants and bars - very welcoming. Breakfast on the patio was delightful each morning. We were in room 4 - spacious room and bath with a balcony. We rented a jeep to drive out onto the... More

we stayed in the main house room 15. It was a petite room and bathroom. Sink was 1/3 size of a normal sink. It was on the second floor. We weren't there much so it did not matter. The bed was comfortable. We slept well. It had a window cooler which kept the room pleasant. It is centrally located and... More

I shouldn't tell anyone about this wonderful B&B because we may not be able to get a reservation next year. As usual, everything was perfect from the comfortable room with lovely linens to the scrumptious breakfast matched by the service. Carl, the manager was ever present and even served us breakfast the last morning because we had to check out... More

Just finished a wonderful weekend at Veranda House. Thank you Carl for the warm welcome and for making our stay so enjoyable. We loved the property's close proximity to town, beautiful grounds and staff's friendliness. Carl's attention to detail and spot on recommendations made our experience even more special. Breakfasts were delicious too!

Some many places just don't get it these days but the Veranda House does. It's important to understand the makeup of the property so one can understand expectations.The Veranda house just exudes what nantucket is about. It's quaint core sets the tone right from your check in. I would certainly classify the Veranda as a small boutique property with every... More

We stayed for a weekend at The Veranda House, the location is 5 a minute walk form the ferry terminal and a very convenient on a quiet little street. There was no one a the front desk when we came in and we waited for 10 mins to get someone to help us (not a big deal) but at each... More

We stayed five days at the Veranda House. We had a room on the top floor with a view of the harbor. The hotel is close to everything, a five minute walk from the ferry and, in our case, a 30 second walk to the Congregational Church where we attended a wedding. This is not a cheap place, but the...

Lovely one night stay at The Veranda House in Nantucket. Bit of a climb to the cute and cozy room on the third floor with a great view of the harbor. Beautiful grounds to just sit and relax, read or visit with others over a glass of wine. Wonderful breakfast in the morning - be sure to try their special... More

Recently stayed at the Veranda House for two nights. Despite the bad weather when we arrived on Nantucket we were given the warmest welcome by the staff. They got us a glass of wine and let us sit by the fire to warm up - perfect start! The room was small but very cute and clean and the bed was... More

This was our 2nd time at the Inn and we already cannot wait to go back. Nothing is missed, from the inn keeper (Carl) offering fabulous restaurant suggestions on our first day, to complimentary sparkling wine and cookies in the afternoon. The 4 course light breakfast each morning is such a wonderful touch. Once again The Veranda House has exceeded... More
