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.
Comfortable surroundings and amenities marry today's convenience with yesterday's Nantucket summers. Each room is equipped with a refrigerator, cable TV, down pillows, and summer comforters; all rooms have air-conditioning. We gladly accept children over the age of 9 and a babysitting service is offered.
Sorry, we cannot accept pets.
Early morning coffee service is available in the parlor, and continental breakfast, featuring fresh fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, homebaked muffins, and our pastry chef's wonderful granola, is served in the restaurant. Afternoon Tea is held in the parlor between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m.
Our rates for our double rooms are $195 in the "shoulder" season, and $295 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 $100 and $155, 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.
