We just returned from a perfect getaway on Nantucket at The Anchor Inn. We love the location on Centre Street, it is so close to town. The rooms are very clean and the linens/beds very comfortable. Nate the innkeeper welcomes you with a smile and has great recommendations for where to go and places to eat. Nate made delicious quiche and frittatas each morning, and we enjoyed eating breakfast on the outside tables. We stayed in Tucker, private 2nd floor entrance, small porch nice room. Previously stayed in Horatio and we loved the room but the bathroom was TINY.

What a great stay at Anchor Inn! Nate, the host was so accommodating whether it be a substantial breakfast, giving us a listing of which town restaurants were open, making sure my room was warm enough, or providing bikes for a day’s ride around the island. Thanks Nate!

Stayed 4 nights in the Tucker room. Nice (high) bed, has its own entrance to the room and small porch. Location is perfect for walking to the town or ferry. Yogurt, fresh fruit and muffins for breakfast. Inn keeper was knowledgeable and helpful. Only downside to the room is if you were tall it’s a low shower and there isn’t an interior passageway to interior during bad weather, unless you also booked the adjoining room. Highly recommend!

Stayed here for a night with my girlfriend. I would recommend this place 10/10. Nice Staff, good rooms excelent value. You cannot beat the location. The inn has a fisherman vibe as it used to belong to a famous whaling captain [capt.cyprus] (the first captain to succesfully harpoon a sperm whale in the pacific ocean. :)

Very small but nice B&B right in main downtown Nantucket. Its literally 5-7 minute walk to shops, restaurants and maybe a 10 minutes walk to the ferries. Nice quiet street so away from the noise on the main downtown streets. Great Inn keeper who makes a wonderful quiche each morning. A simple spread of some pastries/English muffins and some fruit and yogurts. Very good coffee as well. Rooms are dated but it adds to the charm of an old inn. Our bathroom was updated and had good water pressure. Very comfortable bed and bedding. Its expensive but so is every B&B on the island. We'd definitely stay here again.

We had reservations here and had a family emergency come up. I spoke with Tracy who was a huge help. This could have been a much more stressful time if it wasn't for her. She deserves recognition for going above and beyond.

Great location right by the harbor. We stayed the night after coming back from Nantucket. The inside was nice and the bed was very comfortable. The shower was great. The front desk people were nice. From the front it didn’t look impressive but was much nicer inside then the front would make you think. I would say there again if I needed a place to stay near the ferry.

We had a lovely trip to Nantucket for Christmas Stroll 2019. The price was comparatively reasonable, close to town, walking distance from the ferry stop, and very laid back. Diana left her cell number in case we had any questions and provided us an umbrella the one time it started raining. Daily cleaning of bed and bathroom. Ladies- bring an extra towel if you need one when you wash your hair. We will definitely be back!
