We recently returned home after spending a mini-vacation on Nantucket in celebration of our anniversary. This was our 4th visit to the Jared Coffin House and we were pleased with the overall appearance and accommodations, realizing that renovations had been done since the last time that we visited. Upon arrival we were made to feel very welcome and, even though our room wasn't ready when we arrived, we decided to go out for lunch and were then notified by a cell phone call as soon as the room was available. Our first night was uncomfortable because the window air conditioner was extremely loud and vibrated, making it difficult to sleep. When we notified the innkeeper the next morning on our way to breakfast, she immediately took charge, made a call and told us that someone would take care of the problem.. By the time we returned from breakfast, a new air conditioner had been installed and the problem was solved. The Inn is centrally located and is convenient to restaurants and a short walk from the ferry. We highly recommend the Jared Coffin House and look forward to returning again next year.

The friendly staff made us feel like VIP's. We noticed that they were naturally that way with everyone. The location is wonderful for walking to restaurants and shops.

I'm not sure that this place is for everyone, but it is certainly for people who appreciate it's charm. I just did a one night get-away last summer to de-stress and stayed for $155 in one of their single rooms. Don't let anyone fool you -- it is small with a single bed and a small bathroom -- but more than comfortable. But the Inn is so inviting and the staff so friendly and helpful, you feel like whole place is yours. Plus, while the accomodations may only be 4 star, the inn is run like a 5 star property. Right after I made my reservations, the hotel's concierge emailed me to see if there was anything he could do. They made dinner reservations for me at the Wauwinet, and suggested I change my original times so I could take advantage of the Wauwunet's water taxi. They handed out cold bottles of water to tired and warm travelers, and seemed at your every beck and call. Breakfast in the restaurant outdoors was wonderful, and if you want to be in town you can't beat the location.

We recently spent Easter Weekend at the Jared Coffin House and found the location, accommodations and staff to be outstanding. When traveling with extended family ranging in ages from 25 to 59, it is not always easy to find a place everyone enjoys, but the Jared Coffin House was a huge hit with young and old alike. The ease of walking up from the ferry and having great restaurants and fun beverage locations close by was a big plus. Dunes was amazing for a fine dining experience, The Brotherhood of Thieves was a must for the Nantucket experience and The Fog Island Cafe offered a large selection of healthy and delicious lunch selections reflecting the diversity of the island. The rooms were large, capturing historical ambiance while providing comfortable beds with high quality linens and a great night’s sleep. The staff went above and beyond to insure that all our needs were met. Paula at the front desk was particularly helpful with everything from coffee, to bottled water, to diner suggestions to bike maps and more. If she didn't have something when we first asked, she made sure she located what we needed in a timely fashion. We packed a great deal into the weekend and enjoyed the Whaling Museum, a van tour which picked us up right at the house, biking and the beaches. The girls also enjoyed a tour and tastings at Cisco Brewers and we all went back several times to sample the deliciousness at the Petticoat Row Bakery! Even though this was the opening of the season for the Jared Coffin House, it was a great time to visit Nantucket and JCH was a fantastic place to stay.

We had a great time here during the Christmas break. The island was beautiful although not all the restaurants were open. We paid $400/night to stay here for the Christmas and I thought it was definitely overpriced for the inn, but considering the location and the season, I think it was well-spent.
