          Historical Traveler Reviews The Veranda House Nantucket

          Not all its cracked up to be

          from

          The decor is fine and the location good, but all is really thin. The "great" sheets are not pressed, or changed during our stay. Our piece of soap was tiny.

          Our room (10) was large with 3 good windows as promised. The bath small, cleaned up and remodeled, but more like my attic than luxury.

          The breakfast was not good. All carbs. All baked goods to sweet. Yes, the quiche was icy, and tooo salty. We ate a great breakfast at the Fog Island Cafe on the last day.

          Nantucket is expensive so I guess the $ 750 I paid 2 months in advance was fair, but the "luxury" is somewhat thin.

          The inn stunk

          from

          False advertising and this would be fine place for young college students who want to get a room somewhere and don't have any expectations. Horrible set up here. Came into our tiny room to find a man's rear-end staring me in the face on a tiny excuse for a balcony right outside OUR window (only window). No fans, no nothing. The owners have much to learn.

          Already booked my return trip

          from

          The staff was exceptionally friendly and attentive and our room was perfect. Plus, the harbor view from the top deck was amazing. We didnt stay on the top floor but we walked up to the top veranda each day to take in the view. And we loved being able to walk two streets over to all the restaurants and shopping in town. We're coming back for longer next time. (and I bought one of the same beds they have for our apartment)

          The Veranda House: Gentle on the Mind/Body/Soul

          from

          The best in Nantucket Hospitality is to be found at the Veranda House...In one of many pleasant exchanges with Ethan Devine, the inn's owner--and a fourth generation Nantucketer--and his wife Alexis, I gained valuable insights into this very special place on this very special island...The management and staff are the most friendly, proficient, responsive and genuinely courteous people to be found anywhere.

          The decor reflects an Asian/Shaker fusion which offers a peacefulness and harmony of design that soothes the nerves and the soul. Simple pleasures abound: down comforters, frette linens, and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, bar none.

          Each evening, the tireless staff bakes all the delectible goodies for the next morning's continental breakfast, from scratch, using recipes from the Devine family's gourmet island recipe archives. YUM!

          My husband and I can hardly wait to return this summer. Oh, and the chamber music afternoon concerts on the shady veranda were so memorable. We made numerous new friends and acquaintances with other Veranda House guests during our weeklong stay.

          The quaint old fashioned feel of the Veranda House has not been compromised. A true get-a-way, with little to distract from the natural beauty of sun, sand, and sea, with easy access to the historic shopping district.

          Feels like family here! More homey than home.

          Beyond Charming

          from

          My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful Memorial weekend at The Veranda House. The Inn is simply charming and we have never been so relaxed. I especially loved the updated decor, organic yet contemporary - which is so refreshing in such an amazing historic building. We also enjoyed how central we were to town and it's many quaint shops and resturaunts. Finally, the staff was very accomodating and they make a sweet tea that would make any true southerner proud. We have already booked Memorial weekend 2004.

          The Veranda House is Nantucket

          from

          Beds like butter! Delicious food and ample shopping just minutes to town. Evening sea breezes, relaxing porch brunches, afternoon swims on pristine sandy beaches, shop till you drop, bike rides through natural preserves and great staff support. Looking foward to our next visit this summer.

          Wonderful newly renovated place

          from

          The innkeepers were really welcoming and the beds were comfy and new.

          Veranda House was Perfect

          from

          We've been going to Nantucket for years and this is our favorite place yet. It was perfect for us to relax on the porch or in the gardens.

          We'd never had that sort of open common space at a B&B before. I'm not sure what the guest from Kentucky was talking about with the breakfast, which my wife and I thought was outrageously good. And our room was gorgeous. The frette sheets were tops! We'll definitely be back.

          Disappointed in Veranda House

          from

          While the Veranda House looks charming in the ads and online, we were disappointed in the accomodations. The beds were great but that's about it. We had to share a bathroom,(4 people) which was the size of a closet. The shower was so tiny you couldn't move, and there was no tub. There was no water carafe or any other access to a beverage to be had in the whole place. Breakfast each morning was included, but the quiche was ice cold. The staff were very friendly and the entire place was kept clean. Fresh flowers were in each room, but we had no access to telephones, television (not that we wanted it), radio, or any kind of music. Also, we were required to be quiet after 10 pm! Overall, I've been to better Girl Scout Camps.

          Loved the Veranda House

          from

          The Veranda House was amazing. Its the only affordable place on Nantucket with a fresh, modern look- no fru fru. The most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The verandas and gardens were so relaxing and the view from the top deck is the best i've seen on nantucket. Staff and owners very friendly- we're definitely going back.

We hired bikes and cycled around the tracks in the northern Provincetown area. It was great having sealed cycle tracks through these areas and to have access to the beaches. ...

Olivia took a leap in her swimming skill and developed an honorable dog paddle. In the evening, we celebrated our 15th anniversary with our kids starting with happy hour and a memorable meal at the Straight Wharf. These 15 years of marriage have been infused with adventure and ...
