“We loved it!”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

After much research, partly on Tripadvisor, we plumped for The Sherburne Inn. We were vindicated! It's a short bag drag from the ferry port, through the quaint streets full of upmarket shops. On arriving early, we were able to leave our chattels in order to expore the town. We spent so much time in The Whaling Museum that we only had time to check in, shower, change and go out for dinner.
We chose Room 7 as our budget option and it was a very comfortable, bijou room to lay our heads. Susan couldn't have been more welcoming and suggested various eateries and things to do on our brief visit.
We particularly liked our breakfast basket the following morning - so romantic!

thoroughly enjoyed this inn very comfortable and central, delicious little treats like homemade biscuits at tea time and madeira and chocolate brownies when we came in after dinner.

Room Tip: all appeared to be excellent

Cleanest inn I have ever stayed in, linens and furniture were all very clean, pretty and well maintaned. We stayed in Room 3. it was a small small room, think of a cabin on a cruise ship, and the bathroom was very small. if you are very large, pick another room in the Inn. But if you can stay at this Inn, you should. The price is right and the Inn is absolutely gorgeous. Just a short walk to the main street, a, short walk to the ferry, we biked all over the island from here, shopped till we dropped and always had a nice glass of wine out on the back patio, or in the Adirondack chairs. I think this must be the place to stay if you want a true B&B experience.

Room Tip: Room 3 is affordable, beautiful, clean, quiet, but very small, I'd stay in it again though.

I'll must admit that the 4 days we spent in Nantucket had the most perfect weather that has ever existed. So our outlook was rosy. But even without perfect weather, the Sherburne is exactly what a simple Nantucket Inn should be. Our room was small (it's an OLD house), but charming and completely equipped with what we needed. The owner and staff were able to give us any information we needed. The breakfast was ----- nice! (Nantucket is a place of many, many rules and one of them is that Inns are not allowed to COOK breakfast. So the muffins were warm and the fruit and yogurt appropriately chilled. And you make your own coffee in a Keurig which is just fine with me.) And in the afternoon, after a day of beaching and walking, there was a pitcher of ice water with lemon and mint which was completely refreshing and chocolate chip cookies which are always delightful when freshly made. And at night, there was Port and brownies waiting.

The Sherburne is an Inn -- not a hotel, so it doesn't have all the hotel amenities. And there's not much common space -- no dining room and a very small reception area with a few seats where the coffee and port wine are served (breakfast is in a basket at your door). We found it delightful, and we hope to return.
