A note from Martin House Inn
Updated 06/13/20


#3 of 35 B&Bs / Inns in Nantucket
Travelers' Choice
GreenLeaders Bronze level
The Martin House Inn blends the convenience and comforts of today with the romance and nostalgia of the past. Built in 1803 by a sea captain for his bride and restored to a gracious old-world elegance, the inn combines the charm and romance of a bygone era with all the comforts of home. Its gathering areas, luxurious rooms, working fireplaces, peaceful veranda and serenity gardens (graced with gurgling fountains and a fire-pit, and caressed by the music of gentle breezes and classical piano), all beckon you to return. Watch a sunset from our roof-walk with a glass of wine in hand and savor the panorama of the town and harbor. Enjoy a bountiful continental breakfast, featuring our famous granola and scones, and come home to our homemade afternoon treats! Seven-time winner of the Certificate of Excellence award and located in the heart of Nantucket’s historic district, the inn is a short walk from shops, beaches, theatres, restaurants. 13 rms, A/C, WiFi, in-room hotel safes.

My husband and I spent our 30th anniversary on Nantucket and we are so glad we chose to stay at the Martin House. The inn was beautifully decorated. The covered side porch provided a cozy area to sip a glass of wine or read a book. The zen garden out back was a peaceful spot to eat your breakfast in the morning. Speaking of breakfast, homemade baked goods accompanied our morning coffee, along with delicious yogurt parfaits with fresh berries (a very generous helping of creamy yogurt, I might add). For those adventurous enough to climb the ladder, the Widow’s Walk will reward you with amazing views of the town and harbor. Our room on the second floor (23) was spacious and the bed super comfortable. The innkeeper Claire was wonderful, informative and caring. I felt like we were fast friends instantly. I absolutely love the Martin House Inn and will never stay anywhere else on island again. Can’t wait to return.

I have stayed in hotels, motels and I Sls around the world mostly for work but this Inn by far was my favorite. I felt at home and was treated like family. The location was perfect, the room was super clean, the towels were soft, the Sola and lotion smelled heavenly and the bed was a cocoon in which I came to rest for the 3 nights we were there. The sterility garden gave us quiet and peace to read a book away from the hustle and bustle from downtown.

The Martin House is the ideal Nantucket inn. Great location within easy walk to town or the beaches. Welcoming staff willing to provide advice and assistance if asked or just to allow their guests to relax in comfort. The inn is historic and quaint, the grounds are beautiful and the veranda is the best! And one of the most comfortable beds you'll ever experience. All together a great value and a wonderful setting for a Nantucket vacation. Thanks Martin House and especially Claire!

Once again my wife and I had a magnificent stay at The Martin House. With the inns on Nantucket becoming more and more "chic", it's refreshing to still have one that still exudes classic Nantucket charm while still having modern amenities. The innkeeper Claire is delightful and always there to make sure you have everything you need. The breakfast is wonderful and afternoon treats are delicious. The location is perfect, in town but not too close to the busyness. We always enjoy sitting on the porch in the evening taking in the sights and sounds. We can't wait to get back there again soon!

From the start of the process with my reservation the responsiveness from the Inn was fantastic. It was our first visit to Nantucket and the tips along the way were helpful. The daily breakfasts were a treat! It was close to the town, but off the beaten path a bit which was nice to escape back to some peace and quiet on the lovely porch. I can't wait to return to the Martin House Inn.
