A lovely property which dates to mid 19th century. Affiliated with the bigger and better known 'Verandah House' but smaller, only 5/6 rooms and super welcoming staff. Location is to die for, close to town and just behind the bike store. Nice breakfast in the morning and complimentary beverages / cookies in the afternoon. Good housekeeping with complimentary water (as... More

We were in Nantucket for a wedding and stayed at the Chapman House. From the very beginning, we were greeted warmly and that continued throughout our stay. The staff was lovely, and the room was beautiful. The common rooms and back patio were also wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about our stay - I only wish it was... More

My wife and I staid at the Chapman House (next door and part of Veranda House) for our 1-year anniversary. The location couldn't be better (a few minute walk from downtown), charming accomodations combining the early 1800s house with a more modern decore, and great staff that went out of their way to accomodate our needs (don't miss the complimentary...

Stayed here Memorial Day weekend, which due to the Figawi yacht race is one of the busiest on the island. The visit was very pleasant, with the location and decor being the standout. Room 3 is front right on the second floor when facing the property and is a decent size and stylishly decorated. Bed and linens were great and... More

The hotel is absolutely charming and chic, decorated with very good taste. Very good location in the village. Short walk to the center and steamship terminal.The staff, speciallyCarl is so friendly and helpful and does everything to make your stay unforgettable! Breakfast is delicious and Raegan's cookies and cakes a dream! We hope to be back some day.

We visited the Chapman House the weekend of Oct 23-25 and loved our stay. We spent a lot of time in the living room of the Veranda House reading, enjoying local wine and the company of other guests. Carl was really amazing and truly had warmth that I never expected from a General Manager at a bed and breakfast. He... More

We stayed at the Chapman House in late August for two nights. The location is perfect -it is a short walk (less than 5 minutes) to the center of town and because of this it is away from the hustle and bustle of town along a quiet, residential street. It is also a 5 minute walk from the Steamship Authority... More

Location is walking distance to Wharf, Ferry, Whaling museums, shops and restaurants. Freshly baked Chocolate cookies and private patio and lovely cozy sitting room. Steep stairs, no elevators, tiny rooms and bathrooms.

We had the most wonderful experience this summer at the Chapman House. When I booked, I let them know I couldn't eat gluten or dairy. Upon our arrival, Reagan confirmed this and each day prepared a homemade baked item that was both gluten and dairy free. The best part was that you couldn't tell...she's a talented baker! My husband happily... More
