The hotel is absolutely charming and chic, decorated with very good taste. Very good location in the village. Short walk to the center and steamship terminal.The staff, speciallyCarl is so friendly and helpful and does everything to make your stay unforgettable! Breakfast is delicious and Raegan's cookies and cakes a dream! We hope to be back some day.

We visited the Chapman House the weekend of Oct 23-25 and loved our stay. We spent a lot of time in the living room of the Veranda House reading, enjoying local wine and the company of other guests. Carl was really amazing and truly had warmth that I never expected from a General Manager at a bed and breakfast. He... More

I stayed at The Veranda House years ago and this past September I stayed at The Chapman House next door and it was fantastic. The location, the decor, the friendliness, convenience... it had it all. Raegan Large was the inn-keeper that took care of us during our stay was wonderful. She put a personal touch on our stay, understood what... More

We stayed at the Chapman House in late August for two nights. The location is perfect -it is a short walk (less than 5 minutes) to the center of town and because of this it is away from the hustle and bustle of town along a quiet, residential street. It is also a 5 minute walk from the Steamship Authority... More

Location is walking distance to Wharf, Ferry, Whaling museums, shops and restaurants. Freshly baked Chocolate cookies and private patio and lovely cozy sitting room. Steep stairs, no elevators, tiny rooms and bathrooms.

We had the most wonderful experience this summer at the Chapman House. When I booked, I let them know I couldn't eat gluten or dairy. Upon our arrival, Reagan confirmed this and each day prepared a homemade baked item that was both gluten and dairy free. The best part was that you couldn't tell...she's a talented baker! My husband happily... More

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.
