Reviewed 18 June 2013

I spent two nights in the Jared Coffin House last weekend. I have spent a lot of time on Nantucket and somewhere along the way I got the impression that the Jared Coffin House was stodgy and "tired". Wow, was I wrong! The Inn is charming. My room was small but very nicely furnished and fine for a single traveler. The staff is friendly and efficient. There is no restaurant on site this year but there are lots of great (seriously, great) restaurants nearby. It wasn't too hard to get dinner reservations in the middle of June but I'd urge travelers coming during July and August to get the terrific staff at the Jared Coffin House to make your dinner reservations when you book your room.

We just had a wonderful anniversary at The Jared Coffin House. Carol put us in a beautiful king room in front of the house on the 2nd floor . A bottle of wine, cards and chocolates greeted us. Paula, Rachael and Desmond took good care of us.The weather was beautiful. We spent our last night at The Brant Point Grill with a delicious dinner over looking the Harbor.We will be back. Thank You Jeanne and Paul

This should be called a Bed and Cereal. At $335/ night in May, we were shocked at the breakfast or lack thereof. No cooked food, no fruit other than banana, store bought half dollar size cupcakes, and cereal. That was it. All beautifully laid out on two card tables with a white table cloth. We still cannot get over it a week after returning home. The temperature in the room was around 90 degrees. Could not sleep and guests made lots of noise well into the morning hours. The staff was actually pretty good and the building is nice. Just not a Bed and Breakfast. Very disappointing.

Room Tip: One you can open windows.

When I asked where I should stay for my first trip to Nantucket, the Jared Coffin House was universally recommended to me as an inn that embodied the essence of the island. It did not disappoint. The front desk, night and service staff were welcoming, professional, and provided attentive and personal service that made me feel as if I were literally the only guest they were taking care of during my stay. The rooms are cozy, charming, and elegantly appointed. The bed and linens were comfortable. The grounds are beautiful, and the in-town location is extremely convenient. I look forward to returning for another visit.

We stayed here over a weekend and it was very relaxing. The staff was kind and our room was a bit small but still very clean and charming. We really enjoyed the history of the building yet still felt the comforts of home. We were able to rent bikes nearby and spent an entire day riding around the beautiful island. I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I came to Nantucket for the Daffodil Festival. We booked the Jared Coffin House w/out much knowledge re. what to expect. It was, to our surprise, just perfect. The location, right on the edge of downtown, could not have been more convenient. The front desk staff were among the most expert and accomodating I have encountered in 20+ years of worldwide business and leisure travel. Our room in the main bldg was outfitted w/ everything we needed. It wasn't huge, but we didn't expect that it would be, given the age of the Inn. They even had a bike rack (we brought our bikes w/ us.)

My husband enjoyed the the basic breakfast that was offered each day. I enjoyed the bakery that was mere steps from our door. We look forward to returning when the Inn at the restaurant is open (although we had a number of lovely meals in town--looking at you Queequeg's and Dune :) .

We whole heartedly recommend the Jared Coffin House.

Room Tip: We very much enjoyed our 3rd floor room in the Main Bldg.

My friend and I decided to go to the daffodil festival and she recommended this hotel.
The location was so perfect from the ferry to the shopping and finally to view the festival!
Yes the hotel is on the older side but it still felt updated.
I think for us the best part is the amazing service the front desk provided. Special shout out to Desmond who took us to our room and made sure we were all set before he departed. A true gem!
Only downside no restaurant/bar service.
Definitely delightful place to stay.
Thank you for your hospitality Jared Coffin!!
