My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Chapman House for our first wedding anniversary. My husband typically prefers larger hotels or resorts, while I tend to go for smaller, boutique inns or B&Bs. While the Chapman House is very much the latter, it absolutely satisfied both of our needs! We live in a "historic" (read: very old)... More

Great location, breakfast, and staff. My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights just before Independence Day weekend and had a wonderful time. The innkeeper was knowledgeable, friendly, energetic, and an excellent baker. Breakfast each morning included yogurt (with optional granola, nuts or seeds, and fruit), two breads, bagels, fruit, coffee, tea, and juice - small but filling. Our... More

Very cool and stylish decor at this pretty B&B, which is set in an ideal location just outside of town. The innkeeper and staff were delightful. My negative comment, I'm afraid, is the size of the rooms. I understand that this is Nantucket and it is an expensive place to stay, but having just come from the amazing rooms of... More

Hello Helen, Glad that you enjoyed the service and amenities here at Chapman House. Some of the top floor rooms do have unique architecture features that follow the slope of the roof line. The building dates back to 1830 when whaling was the prominent activity and some of the rooms are more intimate . . . especially when compared to... More

Based upon favorable reviews we booked this "boutique style B &B" for an anniversary trip. We have stayed in many B&Bs and in comparison, this was quite disappointing. It's clean, has a good comfortable bed and good, clean towels. Those are the pluses. Our room, on the third floor, has an uneven floor with a very low ceiling, (not for... More

Dear Diane, We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your experience at The Chapman House. With a recent renovation of the rooms, we felt it important to keep the integrity of the historic nature of the building – including a couple of slanted ceiling rooms on upper floors with quirky angles and uneven floors. When guests use... More

Charming inn, very conveniently located, friendly staff. Room was comfortable, pretty. Bathroom was tiny, but fine. Breakfast was a little limited. We had to get down there early to get what we wanted. Afternoon cookies was a nice idea. They just need to make sure cream is available for the coffee at all times. I would stay there again.

We came for nantucket stroll. From the second we booked Hillary was so kind and helpful with dinner reservations. The staff at the Inn were so knowledgeable and helpful as well. We got stranded an extra day because of the wind and they stayed open for us! We will def come back and head straight for the Chapman/Veranda house

This B&B is very cozy and nice. We stayed in guest room #5 and found it to be very comfortable and quiet. The bed was awesome. The room is small, but when I compared it to other places where friends stayed, it was a great value and you can't beat the location. Nate is a great host and very knowledgeable.... More

My husband and I stayed at The Chapman House for our three day visit to the island. The location is so convenient to the center of the village and to the ferry--we could walk everywhere. Nate and Hannah were so willing to help with everything--really made us feel welcome! The room on the third floor (#8) was a little small,... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at The Veranda House last weekend. The hotel is is in the heart of Nantucket, just a minute walk from great restaurants and Main Street (and the Yacht Club)!

Innkeepers could not have been more helpful offering advice on everything from walking tours to ferry tickets to restaurants to how to avoid overpriced tourist traps! My room was extremely clean, spacious enough, well appointed with enough drawer and closet space, plush linens and very comfortable bed. Coffee, tea and a variety of waters were always available throughout our stay,... More
