Ships Inn

13 Fair St., Nantucket Town, Massachusetts, 02554, USA

This 1831 home exudes history: it was built for whaling captain Obed Starbuck on the site of the birthplace of abolitionist Lucretia Mott. Guest rooms, named for the ships Starbuck commanded, are furnished with period antiques and pretty wallpaper. In the basement is a restaurant of the same name (delighted murmurings waft up), which generates a wonderful Continental breakfast and afternoon tea. Two rooms are available with single beds and a shared bath at a very reasonable rate.

PROS

  • large rooms
  • handsome decor

CONS
