“Absolutely perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2007

After spending 5 days at The Sherburne Inn we are certain that we will return again and again. Its old world charm, location and the hospitality of Susan and Dale make it one of a kind. A perfect place to relax and unwind, it is beautiful and the essence of Nantucket.

After coming to Nantucket for over 10 years and always staying at different B&Bs, we feel the Sherburne is the best. The inn is tastefully decorated with antiques and art. Dale and Susan are true professional innkeepers and at the same time wonderfully warm and genuine. I give them credit for their attention to even small details. Access to a computer was a convenient plus too. Cheers to a friendly couple who appear to enjoy their work while making you feel so welcome.

  • Liked — Friendliness and availability of the innkeeper
  • Disliked — I'm not keen on the stuffed teddy bear on the bed

We've been vacationing on Nantucket almost every year for many, many years.The Sherburne Inn on the island is a lovely place to spend time. Since we found the Sherburne Inn over 10 years ago, it's the only place we would stay. Initially chosen for its convenient location - enough off of the main thoroughfare to be quiet but an easy walk to almost everything - we now appreciate so much more about it.

Innkeepers Susan and Dale Hamilton are friendly, knowledgeable, gracious people who make you feel welcome and your stay comfortable without ever intruding. Each time we visit we see improvements and comforts added, not that there was anything lacking to begin with. From lovely towels and sheets to comfortable beds, quality soaps, to generous breakfasts with varieties of fresh fruits and home made baked goods, to thoughtful touches throughout without any pretentiousness, there's nothing you'll be wanting for here and no detail is over-looked. The furnishings and special touches all add to the experience and the rooms themselves are immaculate. The Inn's rates are reasonable for pricey Nantucket.

It's obvious the owners are devoted to providing a good experience for guests, of striving for the best quality, of constantly improving, and of maintaining the beauty and spirit of the island.

We couldn't speak more highly of a place we've stayed at or of the people who own it.

I'd never been to Nantucket until this month and was overwhelmed by the hospitality that I received from Susan and Dale at the Sherburne Inn. The property was perfect for my needs and in a wonderful location - close to everything I wanted to do during my stay. I was particularly fond of the gardens at the Sherburne as they were the perfect location to have a cup of coffee and muffin before starting the day. I have every intention to return to Nantucket and when I do, I'll be staying at the Sherburne.

I found the Sherburne Inn online while researching places to stay to celebrate my 39th birthday. We had never been to Nantucket and I couldn't have been happier with my choice. The Sherburne Inn is quiet, clean, comfortable and Sue was so friendly and helpful with anything you might need.

As everyone here says the breakfast is very good and I was happy with the early coffee at 6:30am because I'm an early riser. Besides the famous muffins, there are healthy choices like cottage cheese, yogurt, fruit and hard boiled eggs. Something for everyone.

The Sherburne Inn is a short walk to the ferry and the main center of town. We sat in the side yard reading on Sunday and just had a wonderful three nights in Nantucket.

On Saturday we had one of the bike rental places deliver bikes and we biked out to the beaches. We had dinner reservations on one of the three nights but the other nights we were able to just go out and find a nice place to eat without reservations.

I had a terrific birthday on Nantucket and the Sherburne Inn was a great choice!

The Sherburne is on a quiet side street just 1 block up from all the happenings in town. We stayed for 3 nights and almost cried when we left. This was our first trip to Nantucket and found the island to offer terrific restaurants and very scenic island life. Breakfast at the Sherburne was very good and the evening sherry hit the spot. I hope to return off season to experience the quieter side of Nantucket.

Mu husband and I stayed at the Sherburne Inn the week before Memorial Day 2007. What a perfect time to visit the island - beautiful weather, no crowds, no restaurant reservations needed and happy shop owners enthusiastic about the summer season. And the lovely Sherburne was the perfect place to stay in our opinion - walking distance from the ferry and town, but far enough way that it was quiet, gracious owners that were easily accessible, but gave you plenty of space, a healthy and tasty breakfast each morning, DELICOUS chocolate chip cookies every afternoon and lots of wonderful nooks and crannies inside and out to read and relax. We highly recommend the Inn, and are looking forward to staying there again.
