From traditional guest houses nestled among the streets of downtown to gracious hotels across the island and summer cottages gracing the shore, lodging on Nantucket is varied and eclectic, with options to suit those seeking authentic vintage accommodations as well as those with more modern tastes. For the first-time visitor, an overnight stay on the island is a singularly memorable experience, kindling a lasting relationship with the "Grey Lady" that inspires them to count the days until their return.

Early advance reservations are strongly recommended, particularly in the busy summer season. The island is smaller than neighboring Martha's Vineyard, and most lodging establishments are within easy walking distance of beaches, restaurants, museums, churches, galleries and shops. During the hectic summer months, a shuttle bus with multiple routes across the island provides a welcome mode of transportation.

To simplify your search for a suitable lodging establishment, a comprehensive listing of Chamber member accommodations--by category--is available in the Nantucket Official Guide, along with contact and rate information, and amenities. You'll find apartments, cottage and house rentals, a hostel, hotels, and bed and breakfast inns, as well as reservation services and information resources. Pet-friendly options are also available.

Many lodgings are converted whaling-era homes where simple elegance and comfort await, transporting you back to a quieter, simpler time. This unique charm is often enhanced by a canopy bed, antique furnishings, and freshly baked muffins to greet you at breakfast.

Innkeepers are welcoming and eager to share their knowledgge of restaurants, beaches, biking and sightseeing to personalize your island escape. You'll also discover that locals are equally helpful if you need directions or are curious about island life in the off-season. Whether in town, or by the ocean, a stay on Nantucket is a relaxing and refreshing respite from the "real" world. Despite being 30 miles at sea, never fear that you'll be cut off from civilization. Cable TV and WiFi access is readily available!
