We've stayed in hotels considerately more expensive and have never had the personalized service and amenities we received at The Veranda House. Amazing!! Nathalie and Hannah and our housekeeper were extremely kind and helpful, anticipating our needs before we thought of them. All the small things really made us feel special. Rooms are small but fresh and comfortable. The location... More

Loved our recent stay at The Veranda House. Perfectly located in a quiet, peaceful spot with a view of the water from the verandas. Just a short walk or bike ride to Nantucket's harbor, shops and restaurants. Loved that it had a warm, hip design while retaining all the charm and sense of history of a historic island property.

Stayed last week at the Veranda House, what a great spot! From the first phone call to book until the morning we left the staff could not have been more warm and accommodating. After spending a considerable amount of time on line researching hotels and B & B's the Veranda House offered the best prices & location. Let's face it...Nantucket... More

My wife surprised me to a trip to Nantucket, but left it up to me to pick the accommodations. I did a lot of research and was shocked at how expensive the entire island was. So after looking at all the option this place just fell into our laps and got the last room(room 20). While it is a little... More

I was on Nantucket for work and stayed at the Veranda House. The rooms are small, and the bathrooms are smaller still, but they are well done and nicely decorated. The staff was friendly. The complimentary breakfast every morning was perfect, the veranda itself was divine, and the location couldn't have been more perfect.

The hotel was in a great location. Easy to walk to pier, beach, shopping and restaurants. Way, way over priced for a tiny room. Our room was on the third floor. Front desk clerk led us up the stairs without asking if we had any medical issues as we were 3 flights up a very narrow stair way. It was... More

While we try our utmost to assure each and every guest a memorable stay at The Veranda House, there are times when there doesn't seem to be a good fit (between property and guest). Historic properties, while sought after by many people who visit Nantucket, are not for everyone. Even so, we are fortunate to be able to accommodate handicap... More

This was our second trip to Nantucket, and our first stay at the Veranda House. We loved the simple city chic decor - perfect for this classic Nantucket building - stylishly comfortable and not fussy. Beautiful terraces and grounds. The high verandas provide sweeping views over the Town and Harbor, yet steps from the great restaurants, shops and ferry terminal.... More

A second stay at the Veranda has made it a favorite choice on Nantucket. Hannah and Hillary provide excellent service and made every part of our stay special. The Veranda House is in a great location and fantastic, sweeping views of the harbor. It's a great value too!

We stayed here for a three nights and really liked it. Our room was small, but we didn't care because we were only there to shower, sleep and nap. I believe there are also bigger rooms with verandas if you need space. They have a nice breakfast, juice, coffee, muffins and then cereal, yogurt or the special of the day.... More

My wife and I visited Nantucket for the first time for our anniversary. What a wonderful experience! The room was clean and charming but more importantly the staff was fantastic... Hannah and Hillary were terrific and our entire experience was a delight. We will be sure to return the next time we are in Nantucket and we hope that is... More
