My friend and I had a great stay at the Barnacle Inn in July. The owners are great and all of the staff are quite friendly and helpful. The Inn is on a quiet side street off of Main Street, and we enjoyed sitting outside on the front lawn chairs by the garden and relaxing. Breakfast is served daily outside... More

We had a really nice stay at the Barnacle Inn in September. Owners, staff and fellow guests were so friendly. The Inn is quiet, which we appreciated since we wanted to relax, and especially during the night there was no noise whatsoever to be heard. Breakfast was served outside in the garden and it was just delicious. Every day, in... More

Upon arrival at the Nantucket Airport (9am), we called the hotel to let them know we had just arrived (as they suggested, as check in is usually at 3pm). Suzy, welcomed us over the phone, and asked me if we wanted to stay two extra nights as our room was available for two more night. Honestly it was a bit... More

The Barnacle Inn is charming, immaculate, and conveniently located...just steps from downtown! The landscaping is gorgeous, and the fresh flowers are a nice touch in the rooms, the hallways, and even on the breakfast trays! The continental breakfast is delicious, and the Inn also provides fresh fruit, homemade cookies, water, and coffee in the lobby. The staff are super friendly... More

I lived on Nantucket for 15 years and now I am a visitor. I have always been fascinated by the Barnacle Inn. It was built in the 1930's and looks like New England to me. It is a block off Main Street so you can walk everywhere. I brought my daughter and her friend and they loved staying there. Liz... More

A friend and I stayed here for the Fourth of July weekend, and we could not have had a better experience. The location is perfect, less than a 5 minute walk from downtown.

Suzie is a great hostess and was very accommodating. I am 6'5" and initially was booked into a single bed room but she bumped me to a queen size. I always stay here on my annual business trip to the island.

I stayed at the charming Barnacle Inn and highly recommend it. Hosts are very accommodating as are all the staff. Breakfast usually served outdoors is healthy and tastefully presented. Coffee, tea and fruit available all day + home made cookies late afternoon/early evening. Location is short walk to town and ferry. Mary Condon
