“Best Stay in Anacortes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

I can't believe I've been going to Anacortes for 20 years and have NEVER stayed at the Nantucket inn!! The inn has recently been beautifully remodeled is very comfortable! One of the owners of the Inn, Matt, provided us with exceptional service. Wonderful conversation, yummy breakfasts great recommendations for area restaurants and charter fishing trips. Definitely a must stay in Anacortes!

The Nantucket inn was the perfect spot for a relaxin couple of days. The inn was beautiful and very comfortable. The innkeeper, Matt, provided us with exceptional service. Wonderful conversation, food, and hospitality. Definitely a must stay in Anacortes!

We stayed only one night and would recommend to others if looking for a place in Anacortes. The inn keepers were very nice. My only complaint is that it is off a main road and traffic noise was high at times, also the wood floors made a loud echo and tended to be extremely noisy in the morning.

We rented the WHOLE INN! for three nights. It was wonderful!
Every two years, our small family of now 15 (10 adults, 4 youth, 1 toddler) have a family reunion for 3-4 days. One of the things we have discovered is:
1) We need a place where we can all be together. Separate accomodations even in the same hotel just doesn't give us enough face time. The large living room on the main floor and dining areas at the Inn provided exactly the right environment for our family to talk, play games, listen to music, and watch a sappy old movie together on the large Flat Screen TV.
2) We need lots of bathrooms. Indeed the Inn accomadated that in style with 3 extra bathrooms outside the 8 in the rooms.
3) We need comfortable beds that are large enough for our very tall grown sons. At the Inn, we found large rooms with King beds that allowed plenty of room for them.
4) We need to limit the climbing of stairs for us old people. Personally, an added plus at the Inn was that our bedroom was on the main floor. No stairs to climb.
5) Preparing Dinner the first night is always a hassle to avoid because we are tired from the trip to get where we are going. We chose to have our first meal together catered by Matt using his catering service that works out of the basement of the Inn. The meal was wonderful. The beef ribs with his award-winning sauce were marvelous. The portions were so large that we had plenty left over for lunch the next day. Matt turned on the Gazebo's Lights and we ate outside in the Garden. It was wonderful! We had Cheesecake and Fresh Strawberry shortcake that was out of this world good. I know. I overstuffed. Incidentally, the Gazebo proved to be a great spot for the required family photos.
6) We need to eat every meal as a family. We fixed all our own breakfasts for the rest of the stay. We were delighted that in addition to the Kitchen mentioned as being in the third floor suite (which is huge!); there is a separate kitchen on the main floor that has pots, pans, dishes, utensils, gas range and oven, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator and freezer. Since, we had the whole Inn, we used it well; just like at home. We bought groceries at the nearby Safeway and The Market. Kite String was found at Ace Hardware. (Thanks Matt)
7) Another requirement we have is that we be close to available recreation activities without a lot of time getting there. We found that the San Juan Ferry being close worked well for our family and even provided walk-on discounts where we had 10 people traveling at once. We also spent time at nearby Deception Pass and flew Kites at Camp Casey on Whidby Island and got back in plenty of time to enjoy the evening. Some of us went Fishing for Salmon off American Camp in the San Juans and caught not only Salmon but got to watch a pod of itenerant Orca Whales as well.
8)We always need to allow some of the Family to return to work early. That has been a hassle in the past. But, Anacortes has a Airporter Shuttle that runs every evening to Seattle. That allowed our oldest daughter to be with us for 3 of the 4 days and leave a day early to return to work in Seattle. That was nice. She caught the shuttle at the Shell Station a few blocks from the Inn the last evening we were there.
9) We get tired of cooking for ourselves. Both the fact that Matt can provide breakfast as well as dinner was a consideration. Because of the ecletic appetites of some of the children, we chose to breakfast. Other meals we eat where we are. The last night, we had chowder across the street from the Inn. It was wonderful. And all we had to do was walk across the road; no big car caravan required.
The Inn was exactly what we needed. It was clean, it was spacious, it was centrally located to the activities we wanted to do. Matt was very helpful and generous. We were delighted that we chose this place for our family reunion.

My wife and I stayed for only one night before heading out to Orcas Island for the weekend. All I can say is we wish we had a couple more nights at the Nantucket! It's a great historical house that has a great combination of privacy (i.e. private bathrooms), and interaction with other guests (breakfast in the morning). Very comfortable beds, clean rooms. We wound up staying too long because we were enjoying ourselves, and we missed the first ferry! Even then, we sat on the beach by the docks, in great sunny weather so was not a problem. Matt was a fantastic host, gave us some history on the town and pointed us in the right direction for cruising around. The breakfast was the perfect thing to wake up to in the morning, great chef!! I would recommend this place to anyone.

Our family stayed at the Nantucket Inn for 3 nights and it was wonderful. Matt was a terrific host and very helpful as we planned our stay. The town is adorable and very close too all the fun on the water. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking to stay in Anacortes.

We just stayed at the Nantucket Inn in Anacortes, Washington and had a great stay! Our host was very helpful with local attractions and some super helpful ferry advice. He also is a chef and made us a tasty breakfast the next day. Our room was amazing...it had a huge deck overlooking the front of the property which is on a hill mid town. From the deck we had an unobstructed view of Fidalgo Bay and Mt. Baker towering over it. We noticed it was almost directly East so we woke up and watched a breathtaking sunrise with the sun climbing up directly behind the mountain lighting the sky up...really nice view. We have been to many nice hotels and were very pleased by the Nantucket. We will definitely be back and if you go get room 3...amazing!

Room Tip: room 3!!!!! Trust me it is worth it!
