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)! We stayed at the Chapman House, one of three houses within the Veranda House. The decor is both hip and warm. The beds... More

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

Chapman House B & B is part of the Veranda Group that seems to really have their act together. After we booked a room on the internet, within a few hours I got a call to say they double booked the same room. Fortunately they had another, more expensive room they offered to us at the same price. This was... More

Our group had 3 rooms in Chapman House - 1 on the top floor and 2 on the second floor. All were small but bright, beautifully decorated and with wildly comfortable beds and bedding. It was quiet and the owners/managers were extremely friendly and helpful.

We stayed in room 11 for 2 glorious nights and enjoyed it completely! Nate who works there is about as nice and helpful as can be. Its beautifully decorated and in the most perfect part of town. Our room was quite small (as mentioned in the listing) but just perfect for us without the kids (yay!). Choose a larger room... More

From the moment we arrived, the place was great. Rooms are up to date, bed is comfortable, location is great. And Nate was accommodating for our every need or want. We will definitely stay again when we return to Nantucket!

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.
