Stayed at the Chapman House for 4 nights to celebrate ny wife's birthday. We were made to feel right at home the minute we checked in. The hospitality was outstanding and accommodations were very nice. Really enjoyed the breakfast each morning which got our day off to a good start. The location to restaurants, shopping and othe venues was perfect.

I stayed here for one night with a friend on a whistle stop tour of Cape Cod/Nantucket. Our whole trip was very last minute so I was a little concerned that we might not get great accommodation (this turned out to be true in other places!) but not at Chapman House Hotel. Its located only a short walk from the... More

My 18 yr old son and I stayed at Chapman House over the July 4th weekend and we had a wonderful time! The staff was amazing, always ready to help, our room was quaint and very clean, the morning breakfast was healthy and delicious. The rates as with many Nantucket properties were steep, but like with most things you get... More

My husband and I just got back from a 4-night stay at the Chapman House, and we loved every minute of our stay! The location was great - a 3 minute walk into town, and an easy 5-10 minute walk from the Steamship Authority ferry, even with luggage. Jetties Beach is about a 15-minute walk (or a quick bus ride),... More

A friend and I stayed at the Chapman House for four days at the end of May 2014. We LOVED it. Nicely decorated. Comfortable rooms. Loved having Apple TV and an Ipad to use in the room. Who can beat freshly baked chocolate cookies each afternoon?! The staff was terrific, very helpful and accommodating. I would 100% recommend Chapman House.

We stayed at the Chapman House for a long weekend and it was an excellent stay. Perfect location - close to town and restaurants, shops. The staff was super friendly and fantastic - booking activities and dinner reservations. breakfast each morning was delicious and there were fresh bakes cookies daily at 4pm. Great place - highly recommend.

As Nate said, this isn't your typical lace doilie and whale decorated island hotel. Charming old house with a modern décor. Rooms are very comfortable but the bathrooms are tiny. They provide you an iPad and Apple TV in your room, which is a nice touch. Nate and Holly are lovely and they put on a lovely morning spread. Situated... More

Once again I have had a delightful stay at the Chapman House. It was my third time staying here and just wonderful. HIllary, Nate, and Maddie knew me from my last stay so when I arrived it felt like seeing old friends. They had great suggestions for things to do and restaurants to try. Thank you, looking forward for my... More

Charming Chapman house - part of Verandah - our room was small as was the bed and prices are high here but there's no place like Nantucket. Delightful spot with extremely helpful staff. In advance of your trip they will book ferry for you and restaurants. Re ferry be very careful to go to the right one and park in... More

This is our second time staying at the Chapman House and we had a lovely stay once again! We can only get away for 1 night so we arrive early and leave late. The staff is very accommodating and stored our luggage for us when we arrived the first year and then the second year our room was ready so... More
