        This is a charming low key place to stay, one of the best bargains on the island. It's not a regular B&B -- you receive coupons for seven different restaurants/cafes downtown -- so if that's what you're looking for, this is not it. However, if...More

        Thank you very much for your review. When our parents ran the house, they developed relationships with guests who returned for many years and are doing so still. This second generation of Carl's running the house truly hope to be able to have a new...More

        Traveling to Nantucket off season for business can be a challenge. Much is closed and the weather and ferry crossings can be iffy. Just back from a recently completed trip I wanted to compliment the Inn Keeper for being so helpful! The boat crossings that...More

        I've stayed at this inn two times this year in the off season. February and November 2016. The rates around $100 per night or so for Nantucket are absolutely amazing! With no minimum stay in the offseason either. Definitely a bare bones type accommodation -...More

        Sara, thanks for your review and for returning to Chestnut House. You described Room 2, our smallest room because it has no sitting room. It is our most popular during the year because of it's affordability particularly for guests booking a short business stay. The...More

        Absolutely loved staying here -- the room was quiet and comfortable, the decor unique and intriguing and very Nantucket feeling. This is a low-key guest house, affordably priced, and with just enough amenities to make a visit very easy (fridge, TV, toiletries, and coupons to...More

        Chestnut House is conveniently located, the bed in the Willow Cottage was very comfortable, and the staff very friendly. We were provided with a breakfast coupon for a great little place around the corner that served great coffee. They could use a repeater in the...More
