We visit Nantucket two or three times each year (past 13 years), but this was our first stay at Union Street Inn after reading about it in the Island’s “Best of” magazine. We found the service was welcoming and pleasant making us feel at home immediately. The general atmosphere is casual and relaxed, yet the décor is sophisticated with the right mix of antiques and contemporary. Our room was oversized (considered a suite) with a small seating area at the entry and a mini bar. There were plenty of areas for storing clothing, and small tables (surfaces) which allowed you to unpack easily. The Frette bed linens were luxurious. The closet was small for two people, however, as was the bathroom. That being said, it was a real treat to enjoy beautiful fixtures and a strong water flow in the shower which is not typical of B&B’s or Inns that we have visited. The location is in town around the corner from main street – a convenient short walk from the high-speed ferry dock.
The breakfast was made to order daily with selections such as Mediterranean omelet, blueberry pancakes, fresh fruit, bagels w/ salmon, as well as choices of yogurt and granola. They also provided major newspapers daily (Globe, NY Times).
We have stayed at numerous other locations (hotel and B&B), and we have friends that rent homes near town. However, the Union Street Inn offers the comfort of home with service of a fine hotel. We’ve already made our reservation to return in May of 2012!!
