Reviewed 3 July 2012

A beautiful inn just a few blocks from the ferry set back on a quiet street within the quaint historic section of town. The staff are all gracious and welcoming. The rooms are immaculate. On those sultry days, one could return from their day out to a refreshing pitcher of iced lemon water and home-baked cookies. The morning breakfast basket (left at your door) was such a delightful treat to enjoy on the adirondack chairs in the garden. We can't wait to go back in the fall.

We were very happy with our choice of the Sherburne Inn. The room was quaint, and while small, it was perfectly adequate for our needs. The small private bath was a nice touch that not all inns offer. We greatly enjoyed the delicious baskets in which a fresh-based continental breakfast was delivered to our door each morning. Innkeeper Susan Daniels provided a great deal of information on what to do and see on the Island. She also helped us arrange our ferry trips at a discounted price through the Sherburne Inn. The Inn's location -- just a few steps from downtown Nantucket -- allows easy access to shops and restaurants without the necessity of rental car. The Sherburne Inn was a great choice for a getaway to celebrate our anniversary.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Exclusively Romantic" room. Small, but very comfortable.

I stayed at the Sheburne Inn for two nights and had the time of my life. The place is nice and clean, the staff is very friendly. The Inn is very relaxing, a friend of mine came over to visit and we were able to sit in the lounge area outside my room and chat. Imagine wakeing up to a basket with breakfast at your door, truly heavenly. I am going back in September and already know where I am staying.

Room Tip: I stayed in room #5 and I loved it, nice view of the back yard.

We stayed at the Sherburne Inn just after the Memorial Day madness, for four days. The inn is beautifully maintained, clean and welcoming. It is also on a quiet side street so you feel really tucked away, which was great. We stayed in room 3 (the Cottage Room) which was very small, but we were fully aware of that when we booked it. The inn was quite full when we were there. Lovely additional touches included complementary cookies and sherry in the evening, help with restaurant recommendations, and Susan went out of her way to help organise a birthday bottle of champagne for my husband. The only drawbacks were: a lumpy mattress on our bed and an extremely tiny bathroom which made it difficult to maneouvre and store our stuff.

Room Tip: Room 3 is tiny ! I had a peek at the rooms upstairs and they are much bigger (but of course also mo...

We appreciate your review of our Inn. All-in-all it sounded like a successful and happy visit. To address your discomfort with the "lumpy" bed... I'm sure you are referring to the featherbed topper we have added to each of our guest beds. It takes just minutes to remove the topper and remake the bed to your specifications. Some guests refer to the featherbed as "sleeping on a cloud". If this is not your experience, our staff is available in person from 7am-9pm to make adjustments for individual comfort, call a taxi, make restaurant suggestions, give directions, or just chat about the Island's unique charm and variety of activities.
Please let us know how we can make your visit extraordinary.

We stayed at the Sherburne Inn June 5th and 6th. Unfortunately our trip was shortened due to Ferry cancelations off the mainland due to High winds and rains. We took the first ferry out of Hyannis on the Grey Lady at 6:30. It's only a 1 hour boat ride to the island. The inn is only about a 10 minute walk from the harbor and it wasn't bad carrying the overnight bags. I had read about the breakfast baskets and was ecstatic when we were offered our basket the first morning. The room was cute and perfect for the 2 of us. The best was very comfortable and warm with the winds that were still blowing that morning. I chose the Sherburne because of the bathroom in the room. It's SMALL; just large enough for a toilet, small sink and stand up shower. We met Susan, the Innkeeper later in the day on Tuesday. She is a sweet lady who is terrific at what she does. The only draw back to our stay was the renovation of the house directly out of our window. We were woken by nail guns and hammers earlier then we would have liked. It wasn't terrible though, it was like a alarm to wake up for the breakfast basket that would soon arrive with fresh fruit, vanilla yogurt, and fresh warm breads/muffins.
Lastly, don't worry if you schedule a late boat off the island and have luggage. They will let you store it until you have to leave. Worked out nicely for us since the day we left was the sunny and beautiful.

I have stayed at this inn twice, both times in the off season. I stayed for a week each, once in March, 2009, and in January, 2012. Both times, I was the only guest. During the 2012 visit, breakfast was not included. I was always welcomed warmly and felt like a family member. Susan and John Daniels - the Innkeepers - are always attentive and friendly. The rooms are simple yet elegant - the perfect mix for an island 30 miles out in the Atlantic. Bot visits were to see family on the island.

Room Tip: Look on the website. Though the Inn is in the center of Nantucket town, it is located on a small, on...

We are so glad you found us for your off-season accommodations while visiting family on island. Since Nantucket is our year-round residence, we keep our Inn open year-round welcoming a variety of guests during the off-season. It does feel like family around our in-town neighborhood whether you've been here 25 years or 25 minutes. Hope we'll see you again this Winter!

This is a very nicely maintained Inn which is a short walk to the center of town. We stayed in room 7 which is described as very small on the website. They were telling the truth, the room is very small as they described but we expected that. The Inn is very clean. We only met one staff member, Pauline, who is very nice and works nonstop to attend to the needs of the guests. The breakfast basket is very cute and dropped off outside the door without disruption. They stored our luggage for us after checkout until we had to leave for the airport. We had a lovely, private stay and would love to go back.
