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

We're thrilled to hear you, your daughter and her friend enjoyed your stay and were able to take advantage of our location right in the heart of town. It would be our pleasure to have you again and we are looking forward to next time already! More

This B&B is nicely decorated and sits off of the road. The garden / lawn area is great to sit and chat or to have your breakfast. The owners, Susie and Phil, are both very nice and do everything they can to make your stay pleasant. Greta and the other 2 young ladies (sorry, I forget their names) were also... 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. Susan and Phil were great, and made themselves present for any questions or concerns that we had. The staff could not be more friendly, and brought warm... More

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

Love the Barnacle Inn. It is lovely. This is my 3rd visit, so I guess that says it all. The breakfast is to die for & although it is served rather early. I think it's until 9 when most places are 10, but they offered it to us until 9:30, so they were accommodating. The rooms are reasonably priced. Suzie... More

The Barnacle Inn is our family's home away from home when visiting Nantucket. We've been returning for many years to the warm, welcoming inn. The rooms are spotless and recently upgraded with new, super soft linens. Many room configurations are available to perfectly suit your individual stay and needs. Home baked cookies welcome you in the evening and the best... More
