A cozy island inn a short walk from Nantucket village.
Located just three blocks from the center of Nantucket, this inn offers guests a little extra peace and quiet. The structure was built in 1831 and restored in 1991. Its historical claim to fame is that it was the birthplace of Lucretia Mott, a famous abolitionist. Like many Nantucket inns, this was once a whaling captain’s home. Each of the guest rooms is individually decorated and comes with a refrigerator --- a good choice if you’re planning to stay longer than a few days. Single rooms share a bathroom. Coffee and afternoon tea can be enjoyed in the parlor, and complimentary continental breakfast is served in the inn’s own restaurant, which is also open to the public. Make sure to try the pastry chef’s locally famed granola. The restaurant is also known for its California-French cuisine. The staff is attentive and happy to help you set up island tours. Children over the age of eight are welcome.
