AAA Inspector Notes
A memorable experience awaits at this classic Nantucket-style inn. The guest rooms and cottages are richly appointed with unique furnishings and luxurious fabrics. Some may find it hard to beat the thoughtful service and impeccable views of the property's private bay and ocean beaches. Highlights of your stay may include a relaxing day lounging on a padded chair on the great lawn overlooking the bay or taking advantage of the complimentary recreational activities. Daily cheese, port and sherry tastings are served in the library each afternoon. Other recreational activities include summer boat excursions to private picnic locations (there is a cost for the picnic lunch if provided by the restaurant). Some tours are availble 5 days a week, those include a four wheel drive natural history excursion to Great Point lighthouse, lobster catching cruise where they teach you how to catch lobsters and when you return the chef will meet you so he can prepare your catch, this is also similar to the Surfcasting Expedition where guests are provided with first-rate casting instruction and your catch may be prepared by the chef, there is a 1946 Ford Woody Wagon tour which will take guests through the Sconset fishing village and provides a good overview of life on the island dating back to the 1600's, and a Nantucket bay cruise to town is available in July and August. Smoke free premises. 32 units, some cottages. 3 stories (no elevator), interior/exterior corridors. Accessibility (Call).

Pros: The staff, especially in the restaurant, were exeptional & very professional and extremely accommodating. It's cozy yet sophisticated and far from the town which can sometimes be crowded. Morning coffee/tea is great.
Cons: Nothing. Everything was wonderful. One must however, take into account that the weather in Nantucket is harsh for 7 months a year and sometimes the exterior of buildings look a bit weathered before shingles, etc can be replaced.
