Ships Inn

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

Fodor’s Expert Review

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, and the basement restaurant of the same name (delighted murmurings waft up) generates a wonderful continental breakfast and afternoon tea.
