“Comfy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

The Carlisle House is a very comfortable, clean and convenient place to stay when you are in Nantucket. Our favorite room is the Tom Nevers on the third floor - and don't forget to try one of Heather's (innkeeper) scones at breakfast!

Room Tip: I like top floors so that no one is above me and down the hall so people don't walk by the room...

Great location, charming room with first class hospitality. Really comfortable common areas as well. Delicious home made breads for breakfast. Innkeeper is readily available with helpful suggestions and information.

Great choice of accommodations. Our visit was in the off season and we enjoyed the whole long weekend. We stayed in the third floor Tuckernuck Room--about the inn's cheapest room. The room was sunny, comfortable and clean with a sweet beachy decor. Plenty of towels and blankets. The room was small--but not too small--with a perk of a private bath that was roomy large (7'x10'). As other reviewers have mentioned, the complimentary breakfast was excellent. The inn is a 5-10 minute walk to shops and restaurants, the ferry, and the Brant Point beach and lighthouse. Walking to other beaches and just around the island was convenient and fun. If you have bicycles, bring them! The Inn has an outdoor bike rack for convenience. Heather, the innkeeper/owner is knowledgeable about her town and quite friendly to talk with.

Perfect location. Convenient to stores, restaurants, ferry. Clean, comfortable rooms with cozy New England feel. Just right blend of privacy and availability of innkeeper. Delicious, reasonably priced breakfast of home baked breads, fresh fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, coffee, tea, etc.

Just got back from a "girls weekend" in Nantucket and were fortunate enough to stay at the Carlisle House. Not only was the location, just perfect (being so close to town and the Cliff Road area/Brant Point area) but the accommodations were excellent as was the continental breakfast each morning!

The Carlisle House Inn was our home for a 3 day discovery tour of Nantucket. We very much appreciated Heather’s warm welcome, the excellent breakfast with home baked goodies as well as the parlour with nice music, a fireplace and coffee/tea . The Carlisle Inn is conveniently located, just a 10 minute walk from the ferry dock and the center of Nantucket. We stayed in the Cisco room that was nicely decorated and had a working fireplace, very much appreciated when it’s freezing outside and the wind blows at 20 mph. Consider however that in a 1765 built wooden house you can hear the guests walking on the floor above and a neighbour coughing … but I guess that’s the case in all constructions of this type. We can warmly recommend the Carlisle House Inn.

Room Tip: If you're sensitive to noise, choose the top floor ... if you can carry your luggage over two fl...

I've stayed at the Carlisle House Inn twice now, and I highly recommend it. The location is convenient (a 5-minute walk from the steamship) breakfasts are wholesome and generous, everything is neat and clean in the rooms with thougntful little touches and on a cold winter night, the fireplace makes the livingroom a cozy place to hang out. Whatever your reason for visiting the Island, you'll find your home away from home at the Carlisle House..
