“Essence of Nantucket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Returning after Daffodil weekend with our friends and spent weekend here! 76 Main captures the essence of Nantucket - historical charm and luxuriously simple bliss on a cobblestone street. Dan, the Innkeeper not only greeted us and gave us an Ipad, but updated us about island happenings with a smile every time we asked him a question. The team of Carla and Alex prepared delightful small plates and spoiled us rotten! The ambiance of the guest rooms, parlor and outdoor patio were beyond expectations. I have stayed at numerous Inns and 76 Main is at the top of the list!

Remarkable small hotel, in a beautiful restored building. Great mixture of old and new. Rooms are spotless, and very well decorated. Staff goes way over the top to be helpful. Breakfast which is continental is a treat everyday as well as different each day.

Room Tip: Take any room except number 1. That is in front of building and very noisy.

76 Main is just what we were looking for during our short visit to Nantucket. We are a family of 3 and the room we had behind the main house was perfect! The staff took good care us and this beautiful property. We will be back one of these days!

I chose this hotel based on the amazing reviews it got, and I was not disappointed. A big selling point was that we wanted to be within walking distance to the center of town and close to the ferry. This was perfect! Another advantage of this hotel, was the guest rooms that accommodate more than 2 people. This was a girls weekend so we were very happy to all be staying in the same room together.
The room itself, along with the rest of the hotel, was very clean and stylishly decorated. The beds, aswell as the pull out couch bed, were extremely comfortable. The pillows were amazing!! The bathroom was huge! Only minor inconvenience with the bathroom, was the lack of hooks for towels....but like I said VERY minor. The light breakfast was delicious with many options to choose from. Only complaint I have about our weekend there, had to do with the people next to us who let their children run around the patio, yelling and slamming the screen doors early in the morning! This wasn't the hotels fault at all but you may want to bring some earplugs just incase.
Everyone who worked at the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!

We caught the fast ferry over from Hyannis and arrived in downtown Nantucket, on our first trip to the island. It was a short walk and easy to find 76 Main, although the cobbled streets were tough with lugging all of our luggage around. The hotel is very stylish and comprised of a the main building and then "guesthouses" out the back which were more like cabins which is where we were staying.

The hotel itself was nice, with the front of house helpful when we asked them to help us find a nearby laundry service. Breakfast was included although we were informed they didn't do protein which essential meant no eggs or meat. Not a problem though as there always really good options each morning including freshly baked goods, as well as yoghurt, fruits, etc.

The hotel couldn't be better located, as is seconds from the historic downtown but without being on a busy road (contrary to the name of the street). You can walk to any of the bars, restaurants, shops and museums within 5 minutes.

Our room was pretty well equipped, although the bathroom was really small and my head brushed the top of the door frame every time I went in (I'm 6'2"). The other issue with the rooms was the walls were pretty thin and on our last night we were kept up by a large group of people staying up and late and talking in the next room. If we were to visit again, I think we would definitely stay in the main building.

Although I really enjoyed our stay on Nantucket, and would recommend the hotel I would say it lacked the personal touch that we'd just experienced during our stay on the mainland Cape before visiting 76 Main. All in all Nantucket is an incredible place which should be on "must visit" list.

Thanks for taking the time to write thoughtfully about your visit to one of our Nantucket properties. We're so fortunate to be located so conveniently to all the island action! Very pleased you had a great experience with our invaluable managers and enjoyed your breakfast every morning. We do have some limitations when renovating historic structures, but we think that adds to the charm of our New England hotels. We are continuing to upgrade noise-proofing issues though, so we always appreciate the feedback. We hope to see you again at one of our hotels when you're back in the U.S.!

We have been travelling to Nantucket since the 80's and have stayed all over the island so we are familiar with all types of lodging in Nantucket. 76 Main is a great newcomer in a wonderful location at the top of Main street just a few blocks past Murrary's toggery. The rooms are spacious and modern.
The Innkeepers were friendly and helpful and offered lots of good restaurant recommendations.
The breakfast was perfect. We will be back!

My fiancé and I spent a lovely weekend in Nantucket and had the pleasure of staying at 76 Main. The inn managers, Korin and Dan, were more than hospitable from the moment we arrived. The inn itself is beautiful! We stayed in a deluxe queen room on the first floor with an en suite. The room was great! Very comfortable and bright. Each morning, we had a delicious breakfast at the inn with a great view of the courtyard at the back of the inn and were always warmly greeted by Korin and Dan.

We were fortunate enough to have unseasonably warm weather for late December and we certainly capitalized on that. Korin gave us great recommendations for daily activities as well as provided us with a list of all of the restaurants that would be open for the weekend. Being that the inn is located a few steps away from the center of town, we were also able to easily get around on foot. Overall, it was a great stay. We certainly look forward to going back and visiting Nantucket this summer and will be booking another stay at 76 Main.
