About the Inn

See what our guests have been saying!

We had the most amazing time at the Carlisle House Inn! Jeneane, the new owner, has exquisite taste. She has renovated and redecorated all the rooms and suites, and each one is more lovely than the next. The breakfast room is comfortable and sunny, the outdoor deck and firepit are charming and always a great spot for conversation. The location, a block away from the visitor center and across the street from a bus stop, manages to be both convenient and also private and quiet. Beach chairs and towels are provided, along with bikes and loads of great advice and tips from Jeneane. We felt like we found a new home away from home, and a dear new friend. I didn't want to leave, and I will definitely be back! Thank you for a wonderful trip!

Everything about the Carlisle was top notch. Our room was all we hoped for and more. The innkeeper's attention to detail was awesome, and we felt like all our needs were anticipated! We would have no problem recommending the Carlisle House!

We just spent 3 nights here and were very pleased. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The location is superb and convenient for walking (we only used a taxi once to go to Madaket). The Inn is clean and the outdoor space that guests can use is fantastic and allows you to relax without having to be indoors. The gardens are well landscaped and the seating by the fire pit is a great place to relax, read or have a cocktail. The Innkeeper was accommodating when we asked questions or for something additional. We felt very much at home while we were there. At times we wished there was a hot breakfast, but we knew there would not be one ahead of time, so it was not a big deal. We plan to return here on our next trip.

While vacationing on Nantucket, my wife and I stayed at the Carlisle House Inn. The staff was welcoming, friendly, and attentive. In addition, the rooms were clean and well kept. Definitely recommend!

My stay at the Carlisle House Inn In June and I have to say what an enjoyable stay it was loved the room I stayed in which was Brant Point so cozy also it was so convenient it was right off the breakfast porch amazing continental breakfast. And at night there was an area in the backyard area where there was a fire with s’mores fixings and cozy blankets available. Not to mention the friendly staff highly recommend and will definitely be back!

After getting married, my wife and I were looking for a nice, relaxing place to enjoy a few days on Nantucket. The Carlisle House Inn did not disappoint. From healthy, delicious breakfasts, an evening mixing station, and nightly S'mores bar in the backyard, the staff thought of just about everything we could have wanted for a fun and relaxing stay. We absolutely loved Nantucket and couldn't have imagined a better or more central place to stay. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I love Nantucket - we usually rent a home on the island but this was a shorter stay and we booked the Carlisle House and we are glad we did! It is beautiful. The rooms are clean, bathrooms immaculate and the entire place is charming. Close to town (very easy walk), and the owner is so friendly, kind and welcoming. When looking at B&B's in Nantucket, do yourself a favor and check out the Carlisle House!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Carlisle House Inn. The Cisco Room, which comes with a king bed and a fireplace, had been renovated like the rest of the property, which was recently acquired by a new owner but still has the historical charm of Nantucket. Terrific location right in town - just a stone throw away from the Juice Bar. The owner was present 24/7 and was extremely attentive to our needs. Highly recommended!

Our first stay at Carlisle House Inn on N. Water Street in Nantucket receives a rare review from us. It is quiet, the continental breakfast is plentiful, fresh and delicious. We stayed in the Sconset Suite on the second floor which has its own full bath, separate living room, spacious closet, and even a fireplace in the king-bedded room. The owner and staff were very friendly, helpful and gracious with their suggestions of what to do, where to dine and directions to each. We would definitely stay there again when visiting this little paradise 30 miles out to sea.

I stayed here for three nights while on the island for a wedding. The host/owner is great, going out of her way to make sure I had anything I needed. While the single rooms are small (they gave me a heads up that this was the case so I knew what I was getting into) they are modern and immaculately clean. A perfect place for a weekend stay!

- John P.

A must stay at the Carlisle Inn while in Nantucket. You will have a wonderful breakfast, s’mores by the fireside, heavenly beds, warm cookies at 3 pm and hospitality rated a 10! We met wonderful people while staying here too. Close to town and attractions. Book today!

This was my first visit to Nantucket. I am very pleased I chose the Carlisle House Inn. Learned the property was newly renovated and under new ownership! Everything was perfect including the remarkably comfortable king-size beds! The Inn was very spacious yet comfortable and cozy right down to the s'mores they offer guests at their outdoor fire pit each evening. Great location to the ferry, museums and downtown shopping and dining! Can't wait to make a return visit!!! I would highly recommend to future Whaler guests!

- Toni M.

Very helpful staff. Location is excellent- 5/10 minute walk from the ferry, close to beaches and right in town (great for restaurants and nightlife). The outdoor area was so nice! Rooms are clean, king-size beds are comfortable and it was a charming Inn.

I had some friends coming to stay on Nantucket for a few days. I heard the Inn was under new ownership and decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised at all the new renovations!!! My friends really loved the Inn. Jeneane was very helpful. They’ve added a new fire pit and offer s’mores. the continental breakfast and coffee was great. My friends really enjoyed their stay and I really enjoyed visiting them at the Inn. I would defiantly recommend staying here.

What a great place to stay on Nantucket. I discovered this island gem while looking for a place to relax and do a little work. This Inn is clean and newly decorated. Every room is unique and tastefully furnished. The deluxe continental is tasty. The innkeeper is friendly and very professional.

- TJ B.

New ownership! Updated and lovely, clean and oh so very hospitable! We will be back next year for even greater updates! Good job! Should be #1 B&B on Nantucket!!! Beautiful touches like new bathrooms, king-size beds and fresh strawberry water and chocolate chip cookies, chairs for the beach, umbrellas and beach towels too! A lovely garden for reading on this, very, very hot day! Beautiful breeze as I write this review here. Very conveniently located. The Inn Keeper even got us a very difficult to procure dinner reservation!

- Judith M.

My husband and I stayed at the Carlisle House Inn last weekend and had an amazing time. The inn is located a quick walk from the center of town, which is excellent since this area of town is quieter than others. The inn is under new ownership and tons of renovations are taking place. Our room had a king-size bed, which is hard to find at small inns on Nantucket. Very friendly staff! Looking forward to going back there this summer.
