Comfortable surroundings and amenities marry today's convenience with the charm of yesterday's Nantucket summers.

Built in 1831 by whaling captain Obed Starbuck, our guest rooms are named after the ships he commanded. The inn and restaurant were restored in 1991, unveiling a freshness which still maintains the integrity and charm of their history. The inn was the birthplace of abolitionist Lucretia Mott. We offer ten guest rooms with private baths, each with its own unique charm. Our sleeping accommodations vary from room to room, so your needs are sure to be met.
Morning coffee service is available in the restaurant, along with a boxed breakfast. We gladly accommodate children over the age of 9; sorry, we cannot accept pets.
