The Carlisle House Inn
Ranked #12 of 38 Nantucket B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 July 2012

The inn is in a great location, close to the center of town, and a short walk to the beach as well. Heather was a great host, and we really appreciated her attention to the small things -- great restuarant recommendations, cold water, wine & cheese, treats at the desk daily.

Would definitely stay here again!

Spent as a couple a few nights during summer. We are used to spending for quality
but felt this room was extremily over priced for what it is. Old decor, little
light, no extra plug to charge phones (had to unplug the light), bathroom was inappropriately
small, you hit the walls as you wash your hair (and we are slim), two people
don't fit or cannot cross each other, innkeeper has an attitude that is far
from helpful / available. Inn is however well located, in silent street. Breakfast is good
and breakfast atmosphere is peaceful. It's worth $200/night peak season.

Room Tip: Ask about room and bathroom size

We stayed here right around Thanksgiving last year and it was the most relaxing place. It is very clean and cozy and the breakfast buffets are divine. The room we had was on the 2nd floor and it was nice and big, very comfortable and we just enjoyed it so much.

Very romantic.

A lovely B&B. Beautifully maintained. Wonderful hostess, Heather. The rooms are spotless, the breakfast is just right. Wonderful muffins or fruit breads. It's close to everything. Town, beach, shops, etc.. And priced very reasonably.

spent this past weekend here and could not have been more pleased!!!! heather (our hostess) was friendly, helpful and frequently visible, tho not intrusive. she was interactive with all her guests. breakfast was great! homemade popovers and blueberry cake, local breads, just enough but not too much to bog you down. LOVED, LOVED the inn, convenient to everything, charming, and quintessential cape cod!! nantucket is the cape at its finest. heather even writes childrens stories, so of course i had to come home with one of them for my grandson. thanks so much for a superb weekend heather. hope to return soon.

Historic charm, lots of wonderful amenities (great breakfast, coffee 24/7, toiletries, wifi), friendly and helpful owner. Best of all, easy walking distance to everything in town. Comfortable beds, quiet street. Will definitely return.
