Fathom Favorites : Nantucket Hotels

1. Jared Coffin House

The 1800s-era antique-filled mansion is probably best known for hosting Herman Melville where he met Captain Ahab's inspiration Captain Pollard. Classic furnishings and New England charm fill the 30 rooms in the main building and the thirteen rooms in the Daniel Webster building next door.

2. 76 Main

76 Main

A stylish addition to a historic neighborhood with nautical vibes and rooms featuring work from local artists. Cozy touches like homemade Oreos and cocktails in the courtyard make you feel like you're bunking at your stylish friend's island getaway.

3. 21 Broad

21 Broad

One of the island's newest additions. Bright yellow and teal accessories dot the lobby (guests are welcome to put on a record at the turntable) and expansive back deck, where a fire pit keeps it cozy on chillier evenings. The white-on-white rooms and stylish furnishings feel like Miami, not to mention the juice bar and Vitamin C-infused showers.

4. The Veranda House

Mid-century modern accents in the lobby bring a little Manhattan-chic to the otherwise laid-back luxury hotel. All eighteen rooms and one suite either look towards Nantucket Harbor or have access to private verandas overlooking the garden. Note that only kids over ten are welcome (which could also be a plus for young couples.)
