“Warm & Friendly with Great Breakfast”
Reviewed 29 September 2011

The Barnacle Inn is our favorite get-away for a relaxing beach weekend. Owners Suzie and Phil are so friendly and helpful and put out the most wonderful breakfast on their patio. Wish we could go there every weekend.

I have stayed at The Barnacle Inn twice within the past year. The owners, Suzy and Phil, are extremely friendly and go out of their way to guarantee a wonderful stay. It is a no frills inn which is in a perfect location just off Main St. There are no TVs and you may have to share a bathroom but this is the most affordable, adorable place on the island. They also have a delicious breakfast which is included in your stay. This is my go-to place to stay on Nantucket!

We take frequent overnight trips around New England from Boston. One of our favoirtes is going to the Barnacle Inn on Nantucket. The owners, Suzie and Phil are always friendly and helpful. We love the morning breakfast out in the garden/lawn area. It includes a tray filled with homemade baked goodiesand fresh fruit. The Inn reminds me of a favorite Aunts house filled with fresh flower sprigs in all the rooms with natural breezes blowing. Not fancy, but comfortable, a good value and a great location.

The Barnacle Inn, run by Suzie and Phil, is a warm friendly place to stay in Nantucket. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. The gardens outside, where you enjoy a delicious breakfast, are relaxing and tranquil. The location on Fair St. is just 1 street away from Main St. yet doesn't have the noise and traffic near by the B & B. The hosts greet you every day and make you feel at home. Each day's breakfast was delicious. You sit in the sun or shade of the garden and read a book or talk with other interesting guests. If you arrive by ferry you have a bit of walk to the Inn but it's a great place to stay on the island.

Stayed here while we were in town for the Nantucket Triathlon. The Inn is very close to downtone, yet is tucked into a side street so you feel like you are in a little oasis. Suzie and Phil are very accomodating and go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. The gave us some great recommendations for dining.The rooms are very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. I felt like it was my home away from home, but better since I had someone to take care of everything I needed. Will definetly stay here the next time I am in Nantucket.
