“Amazing comfort and hospitality”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Susan is an amazing host, very comfortable beds, squeaky clean rooms and delicious cookies!
We have enjoyed many stays here and will continue to on all of our trips out to Nantucket.
Thank you for making us feel right at home!

My husband and I stayed at this Inn, and although not the largest of accomodations; I found it to be a nice place to escape from the crowds, and it felt isolated; yet we were in the perfect location in town... The Inn was very clean, and the breakfast was very european, and simple, but good. The owner was a very kind woman, and always helpful. Great internet acsess in room, and a computer to use upstairs as well off the private reading room. They came in and tidied up the room daily, and even had out own little fridge... If I changed one thing; I would offer some evening snacks, and keep out coffee/tea maching late into the evening.

I spent one night at this Inn and enjoyed it and its location. Was met by owner when I arrived. Room on second floor - small but perfect for solo or couple. Location excellent for exploring town, but then retreating to quiet street. Breakfast was simple, included fresh fruit; and consumed on small porch overlooking garden. They kept my bag until I left, which I appreciated.

Time needed to pass before writing this review. Having stayed at B&Bs in USA & Europe, there is a conception of what it will be like. This B&B did not meet it at all. The rooms were beyond small for the shoulder season rate charged & the bathroom was as small as our 27' boat bathroom. In rooms such as this, the small flat screen TV should be wall mounted. Neither A/C or heat was necessary so a wooden stick kept the window open. My partner is not a yogurt & muffin person consequently we had to find breakfast daily. As mentioned, yogurt provided was miniscule. Coffee was Keurig, make your own, in the reception area. Other than a sitting area on the 2nd floor, there was no place to eat breakfast. A small deck located on the 1st floor exists, weather permitting. Snacks were cookies, tiny brownies & water with lemon.

Room Tip: As said by another reviewer, stay at Union Street Inn if you desire more substantial breakfast &...

We stayed at the inn this past weekend during a surprise 30th birthday celebration I had planned for my husband. The inn was the perfect place to spend the weekend! I was extremely impressed with the inn staff as they were always kind and helpful each time I called for tips on planning the perfect surprise getaway.

The entire inn was immaculate and tastefully decorated, and all of the special touches really enhanced the experience. There is nothing better than having breafast delivered in a basket to your door each morning! The inn's location is perfect, very close to the ferry terminal, downtown shopping areas, and restaurants.

We stayed in the Cosy Stateroom (Room #7), which was definitely small, but cosy as the name states! I chose the room because it is upstairs in the back of the inn and I wanted to make sure we had privacy. If I were staying for longer than two nights, I would suggest a larger room.

Overall a great experience, and we will definitely be back to stay again!

Room Tip: Rooms toward the back of the inn are the most private!

Everything was said when we mentioned we were coming from Union Street inn: "don't expect the same breakfast". It was definitely different and in many ways .
No dining area for the guests to have their breakfast: "we bring a basket to your room" but they forget to tell you that you need to get up anyway and make your own coffee downstairs then find a place to put the basket on (no table in the room), literally 3 teaspoons of yogurt at breakfast tell you a lot about the generosity of the place(see photo complete breakfast for 2 people). The building is nicely located, we stayed in room N°5, the door lock was difficult to function, a small and average quality bathroom, the hair drier was down, (I had to ask for another one), a different perception of so called luxury linens and mattress , our luggage stored in an unlocked garage (!)while waiting for our flight,The kind of atmosphere where you feel uncomfortable and certainly not at home whatsoever. Yes those little details when added together make the difference specially when compared to the Union street inn where we stayed the day before (at a lower rate!), their real sense of luxurious, their exquisite taste in everything, attention to details, nice, knowledgeable, extremely attentive staff with excellent advices, generous delicious breakfast and afternoon treat. Perhaps Susan should spend a couple of days there!
Unfortunately, Sherburne is not the place where we will come back .

Room Tip: Don't Go There!

We mention the Sherburne Inn’s ”Breakfast Basket” feature when our guests arrive as it is a unique and popular concept for enjoying breakfast in bed, in your room, or if guests prefer, joining others around the fireplace in our parlor, or perhaps bringing the basket to our sun deck or our garden. All these areas have tables and chairs (even cushions) for our guests’ comfort.
So, yes it is true that we do not have a breakfast room where our guests must come to be served breakfast. Instead we have lots of breakfast venues for our guests to choose.
Since the baskets are individually prepared each morning with warm-from-the-oven baked goods, fresh seasonal fruits topped with a few tablespoons of yogurt, and chilled fruit juices, Sherburne Inn guests can ask for more or less of any of these items. We will gladly accommodate special requests.
Our carpeted garage luggage storage has a lock on the door. We’ve locked the door for many of our guest’s who have asked us. Leaving it unlocked seemed to be more convenient to the majority of our guests.

Oh, and I was happy to discover the hairdryer in room #5 was immediately re-activated when I pushed the reset button.

One of Nantucket’s greatest features is the vast variety of accommodations available to our visitors - historic inns, guest houses, hotels, resorts, timeshare condos, house rentals. All of us in the hospitality field put considerable efforts into making sure our visitors enjoy their stay on Nantucket. Please come visit us!

This place is lovely! Very nice rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. We got a room with a balcony and its very cute. But the Breakfast Basket was the best! Its our first time in Nantucket and we love it! :) We will definitely come back!
