“Relaxing stay in clean, modern room near town”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

I lived on Nantucket for 6 years and am familiar with many of it's properties. The older style B&B's aren't exactly my style, and so I was surprised and very happy to find the Chapman House.

A beautiful 5 minute walk from town, the Chapman House is a recently renovated jewel. It has all the charm of an old Nantucket property with an updated interior. Our king bed was large and comfortable, the apple tv let us stream some Netflix at night, and even the Lather line of bath products were excellent.

This would mean nothing without a great staff, and theirs is excellent. The managers (Hillary & Nate) were so very friendly and helpful, and the rest of the staff throughout the property did anything they could to make us feel welcome.

They have a website that actually works (wake up, rest-of-Nantucket), great prices, and a beautiful location and structure. Happy to give them a great recommendation.

My husband and I stayed at the Chapman House for our anniversary. It's in a very convenient location on the island, beautifully decorated, and has very comfortable rooms. We stayed in room 10 (it's room 40 on the website) and loved the bed, robes, and iPad. (Note: If you're taller than 5'9 or so, you might not want to stay in the rooms on the third floor - lower ceilings. Otherwise, I definitely recommend the third floor because it is very private.) Breakfast is tasty, with fresh baked goods, yogurt, granola, fruit, and fresh juice. The garden is a very pleasant place to sit and read. Hillary and Nate, the innkeepers were friendly and helpful (and recommended great restaurants). We can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: The third floor was very private, but it has low ceilings. I highly recommend the third floor for an...

The Inn keepers are hospitable and helpful. The Inn is very chic and spotlessly clean. It is well located with easy access to town but in a quiet neighborhood. Breakfasts are freshly baked. All in all a very positive experience which we highly recommend.

My husband and I stayed at the Chapman house on 9/26/2012 thru 9/27/2012 and we had a great time! We got upgraded as soon as we got there (because it was off season and the B&B wasn't full) Our room was beautiful and they gave us an Ipad that had local attractions, restaraunt info, etc. Our breakfast the next morning was delicious, fresh juice was served to us and the staff was excellent! I would DEFINITLY recommend this B&B and we look forward to staying there again!!

Room Tip: it's an old house so if anyone is tall in your party make sure you ask about ceiling height and...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Chapman house at the end of August and loved it! Nate and Hillary were extremely friendly and helpful in many ways. The Inn was clean, renovated, and had beach chairs and towels and beach bag available for guests to take to the beach. The location was ideal for walking to anything. Nate and Hillary were very kind, even offered to dry our wet stinky running clothes after we got caught in the rain one morning on our run! The Chapman house is a lovely place and we plan to head back again next year!

Our daughter recommended the Veranda House to us as great place to stay to celebrate our 50th anniversary and for good reasons. We stayed 4 nights in the Chapman House and the entire time there was perfect. The managers, Hillary and Nate, were knowledgeable, kind, and fun. The breakfasts were outstanding as were the afternoon cookies. And the location was a "5" being that it was in town, on a quiet street, and near the ferry wharfs and bike paths. We hope to return again!

My boyfriend and I spent a week here and had a great experience. Hillary and Nate are fantastic; they're super friendly without being intrusive and were incredibly helpful in giving us tips on places to see, where to eat, etc. The house is newly renovated and has great decor that's also comfortable. We were in room 37, which I think is the largest but it's true that some of the others were quite small. We spent the one rainy morning we had on the covered porch at the Veranda House, reading and enjoying the down time. All in all we had a great time, and would definitely visit again.
