My stay at the Sherburne Inn was fantastic! I stayed there for my wedding weekend 09/2020. Karen was extremely attentive and polite. The quality of the room and the service was unmatched. The inn made sure to put out umbrellas in the lobby for guests to use if it rained. Additionally, coffee and water available in the lobby all day. Karen made sure to connect with me before our stay to define what we needed in our room in order to make our stay as best as possible. Many have concerns about traveling during COVID-19, but I can assure you that this inn took all of the necessary precautions to keep themselves and their guests safe. Check in was contactless and easy. I will definitely be coming back soon. Thank you Karen & Sharon for the amazing wedding weekend!

Property's Favorite Review
Our 35th wedding anniversary trip to Nantucket and The Sherburne Inn was absolutely wonderful! The location was within walking distance to the town, yet in a quiet area. Karen was so helpful in providing us with a list of restaurants along with a brief description of each one and assisting us in making our dinner reservations in advance, to ensure we had a pleasurable dining experience each night. She booked our ferry tickets to and from Hyannis Portland and arranged for taxis when we needed transportation on the island. Even though there were Covid restrictions, she and Sharon did everything possible to make our stay at the Sherburne Inn enjoyable and comfortable. They were very attentive to our needs. I will definitely try to stay here again and also recommend this bed and breakfast to my friends looking to travel to Nantucket.

This was our second summer staying at the Sherburne Inn, and once again we had absolutely no complaints! Karen is so sweet and focused on the happiness of her guests, and the location is perfect on a quiet little street in town. Despite the countless Covid restrictions she went out of our way to make sure our experience was great. We will definitely be back next summer. Thanks Karen!

We stayed there over the Memorial Day weekend. Although the property looks nice, the walls are paper thin and all noises from the hallway and adjacent parlor room are very disturbing. In addition, the owner is not accommodating at all. There is no room service at all. It is very difficult to reach any help at all times. We tried to reach her to complain about the party going on in the parlor room after 9:00pm, but she did not respond to our text or voice mail. The is no personal on premisses the evening. In addition, the checkout is 11:00 am. Who we asked for an additional one hour we were refused. There is no storage to store your luggage after the checkout. The owner offers to leave the luggage in the detached garage on the street that does not have a lock. Overall we felt that the owner is extremely unaccommodating and that this old hotel does not justifies the fees requested. One would feel unwelcome in this hotel. I would not recommend it to anyone.

I will make sure accurate information is provided. There is always someone on property - Sharon lives there - and as discussed with social distancing guidelines we cannot have a front desk in the entryway. You are provided with my personal cell number (owner) as well as my home number for overnight emergencies. You called me at least ten times during your stay and I answered - once to fix a window shade which was simply stuck in the window frame - and once to fix a light bulb which was fine - you had unplugged the lamp. And the evening incidence was not a party, but two guests in the parlor talking at a normal level. We are clear that bag storage this year is temporary (the garage) and you were offered locked storage at the bag valet downtown as an option. We could not offer late checkout but did actually check you in 4 hours before the normal check in when the room was ready. Our $400 per night price over Labor Day is considered moderate - which still does not mean we don't provide excellent service even during Covid times - we we do as is evidenced by nearly all other reviews.

Although a very nice Inn, and very close to town, I was disappointed by the lack of service. In times of COVID, things are tricky I’m sure. But I had the impression that we would have a continental breakfast and that’s part of what I paid for. But upon arriving, the inn keeper said, due to Covid that it wasn’t available. They did give us coupons for a limited selection of tasteless food down the street, which wasn’t worth it. So in the end, I felt like I didn’t get what I paid for. Otherwise it was tidy, quiet and safe.

I am sorry you were disappointed by the Culinary Center cafe. Most guests have loved their selection. Rules prohibit us from doing a continental breakfast buffet this year, so the only option would be to leave you one baked good at your door, with no selection, so instead we felt this was a nicer option. We have individual keurigs in each room and pre-stock with your preference for beverages. Please understand most of what you pay for is the room and the staff/service which is still very much there.
