I don't usually pan places on TripAdvisor, but this one is an exception, for it would be unconscionable for me not to warn prospective visitors about this place. Luckily, we still got the off-season rate of $100/night in early June, because this place was barely worth that. First of all, we didn't have maid service for the first two days.... More

What was great: price, location, it reminded me of grandma's. Not great: no breakfast, outdated (see previous comment), no real amenities. We went with a couple of other couples who stayed at a much fancier place and spent a ton more. Our room was large, clean, and comfortable. It also didn't set us back two months salary. I probably would... More

For over twenty years we have been going to the island in April before it gets crazy.About 5 years ago we started staying at Chestnut House.It is very quiet and private. We love this place because the owners are so kind and the decor is unique. The room we stay in on the second floor has a queen size bed... More

very nice room good for a couple of people. close to town. we felt safe walking around near the inn. the walk from the ferry took only 5 minutes. but we had to pull our suitcases on a cobble stone walkway that was a little hard.

I recently spent two nights at the Chestnut House. We spent the first night losing sleep because a broken Carbon Monoxide detector in the hallway beeped every few seconds all night long. When I returned the next afternoon I asked the manager if had been fixed. She said rudely, "You don't hear it, do you?" She then proceeded to tell... More

A quaint and cozy place right in the middle of it all. We were very well taken care of. The suite on the first floor was perfect for the family with privacy for all. The only downside were the vouchers for the coffee shop for breakfast, but otherwise we will come again.

Instead of breakfast you get a $5 voucher toward a croissant or muffin at The Bean around the corner. I would have preferred an option with some protein to start the day....everything else about Chestnut House is convenient and charming; especially the price!

Staying here in the off season is a real treat. Rates are lower and town is not so crowded. The stay was quiet, clean and comfortable. But the location is great, right in town, so it's easy to get to great restaurants and shops.

Very convenient location! Great owners. We have been staying here every summer for many years and always look forward to going back. Most rooms are two room suites. We have our favorite rooms. Won't be disappointed.
