“A quaint inn just off the beaten cobble path.”
Reviewed June 5, 2011

The Inn lived up to the advance press of being quaint and romantic. While very close to Main Street shops and restaurants, it is tucked away just enough to feel like you are on a private street. Delicious breakfasts every morning on the patio and just the right amount of attn from the staff and inn keepers (eager to make suggestions, reservations, etc, but not at all overbearing). All the rooms were beautifully decorated, with Rms 1 and 3 being our favs. You honestly couldn't make a bad room choice.

Enjoyed our days walking around the town, taking in the homes and history. Rented bikes from Young's Bicycle Shop and took in the Cisco brewery, Sconset, Sankaty and Brant Point Lighthouses and much more.

Too many wonderful restaurant options to take them all in, but enjoyed Centre Street Bistro, Pazzo, Company of the Cauldron and Seagrille.

The last evening of our trip was capped off by a sunset sail on the Endeavor. Captain Bill was a great guide with lots of stories to share about the Island. Beautiful way to end a beautiful trip. Love, love, love ACK!

Just returned from a trip that included Nantucket. We were very lucky and landed at the Union Street Inn in the centre of Nantucket as close to the centre of town as you could be without being on Main Street. This place is fantastic. Great accommodation, great staff and great food. It's as good as it gets. I feel slightly unhappy about recommending this place as I do not want too many others turning up in case it changes but these guys deserve any accolades they receive. From the luxurious beds and furnishings to the outstanding breakfasts on the patio everything was so professionally organised and friendly. Great place.............would love to go back. We travelled from Edinburgh in Scotland to be here and it was totally worth it.

Room Tip: Any room...........just go

We used our 50th wedding anniversary gift certificate for this lovely Inn and we loved our stay. Our room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated, we even got used to the slanted floors in this late 1700's house. Brian made us feel right at home as soon as we walked in the door and he greeted us each morning as he served us a delicious breakfast in the garden dining area, where we enjoyed conversation with some of the other guests. He also made restaurant suggestions and we were never disappointed. We look forward to returning to The Union Street Inn, which is within walking distance to just about everything. We especially enjoyed the walking tour and map of the historic district, which was suggested by our Inn keepers. Thank you for all of your kindnesses.

This is a historical hotel of very high quality located on on a great street 2 minutes form the harbor and the main street. Exclusive breakfast, friendly staff and lots of great advice on what to do on Nantucket from sightseeing to visiting the restuarant of your choice.

Union Street Inn is a delightful "home" on Nantucket Island. The service is impeccable and the breakfasts are superb. It is centrally located and the owners are wonderfully helpful in setting up tours and making excellent suggestions for your stay. My sister and I were there for 4 days and would highly recommend it !

Stayed here a couple of weeks ago with friends for two nights. Loved the place. Rooms are beautiful. It is a true B&B with a nice breakfast. Location is perfect, short walk from ferry. We had never been to Nantucket but will be back and will definitely stay at this inn.

My Fiance had never been to the Island and I wanted to get married over there, so off we went, not only did my fiance LOVE the island but he is still talking about the our stay at the Union Street Inn, the hospitable, friendly and lovely staff were the greatest part of our stay besides getting married on the beach. From the time we arrived until the time we departed everything was just PERFECT!! We will be back again for our anniversary. The Union Street in is the best Inn on the island, and those White Chocolate Macadamia cookies are "to die for". Thank you all for making our wedding weekend one to remember!!
