This is the 2nd summer my partner and I have spent a week at the Sherburne Inn, and I cannot say enough positive about the place and its proprietors. Beautiful and perfectly maintained inn that makes for a truly authentic Nantucket experience. Many reviews here have already made note of the breakfast delivered to your door every morning, and the sherry and homebaked cookies waiting for you as you return home every evening. If you need anything at all while you're here, from restaurant recommendations to additional beach towels to peace and quiet, the owners and staff are at your service. Susan, the proprietor, is a lovely person, very welcoming and charming and a top-notch professional who very clearly takes pride in her inn. She is also knowledgeable about what the island has to offer and its rich history. The inn is extremely well located, on a very quiet street that is far removed enough from the hubbub of town and yet so close that everything is w/in very easy walking distance. Any negative comments on TripAdvisor seem to have to do w/ the "skimpy" breakfast, but let me say that my partner and I have fairly healthy appetites, and we are always extremely satisfied w/ the breakfast offering (but as this is America, land of the overfed, I must say that I'm not surprised to read that some reviewers are not satisfied w/ anything less than the Lumberjack Special delivered to their door every morning; maybe they'd be happier staying someplace w/in easy proximity of a Denny's?). In general, bear in mind that this is a B&B and is a true B&B experience; it is NOT a full-service hotel w/ hot tub, room service and a spa. If you're looking for that, this is not the place for you; find a hotel. They do exist on the island. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a truly authentic Nantucket visit, one that will make you hate to leave and return to reality and that will make you long for your next visit, then look no further than the Sherburne.
