Comfortable surroundings and amenities marry today's convenience with the charm of yesterday's Nantucket summers.

Built in 1831 by whaling captain Obed Starbuck, The Ships Inn has guest rooms which are named after the ships he commanded. The Inn and the Restaurant were restored in 1991, unveiling a freshness which still maintains the integrity and charm of their history. The Inn was the birthplace of abolitionist Lucretia Mott. We offer ten guest rooms with private baths, each with its own unique charm. Our sleeping accommodations vary from room to room, so your needs are sure to be met.

Each of our air-conditioned guest rooms has been recently updated, and is equipped with a flat screen cable TV, down pillows, hair dryers, iron and ironing board and free wireless internet. We gladly accept children over the age of 9. Sorry, we cannot accept pets.

Early morning coffee service is available in the restaurant, where an expanded continental breakfast featuring fresh fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, homebaked muffins, and our pastry chef's wonderful granola is also served. Afternoon Tea is held in the parlor between 3:30 and 5:00 p.m.

Our rates for our double rooms are $195 in the "shoulder" season, and $325 during peak season (July/August). All double rooms have private baths, and guests receive a full continental breakfast each morning, with fresh squeezed juices and baked good prepared fresh each morning. We have two single guest rooms which share a bath, at $110 and $165, depending on the season.

The Ships Inn gift certificates are very popular, for a special bottle of wine, a dessert tray, or a special candlelit meal. The Ships Inn loves celebrations!

Room reservations can be made by calling 888-872-4052, and are highly recommended for your stay during the peak season.
