Introducing Anchor Inn

Steeped in Nantucket history, Anchor Inn was built in 1806 by original owner, Archaelus Hammond, Captain of the whaleship "CYRUS" . He was the first man from Nantucket to kill a sperm whale in the PACIFIC Ocean. The Gilbreth's of "Cheaper by the Dozen" fame owned the property in the 1950's and wrote about their experiences as innkeepers in the book "Innside Nantucket."

We invite our guests to enjoy the history, charming character and comfortable Nantucket lodging here at Anchor Inn.

The Common Room
The Anchor Inn's unspoiled interior retains the original random width floor boards and striking antique panelling. Off the entrance hall, the common room welcomes guests to visit with each other and relax after a day at one of the many pristine Nantucket beaches. Enjoy a selection of Nantucket books, games, island maps & brochures, or review a collection of menus from the many superb Nantucket restaurants nearby.

The Breakfast Porch
Classical music and the aroma of Charles' freshly baked muffins will greet you each morning for continental breakfast in the enclosed breakfast porch.

The Garden Patio
Enjoy the side pocket garden where you can have a leisurely breakfast or relax after a day at a Nantucket beach and visit with fellow guests from across the USA and abroad.

One night reservations: usually one night reservations are offered last minute in season though sometimes a one night stay may be available in advance.

Cancellations

• Please note that our cancellation policy is based on Nantucket being an island. Please ensure you are familiar with our policy since rooms cannot easily be re-booked, most visitors make advance plans.
• Call 508-228-0072, to cancel, speak to a staff member and you will be given a cancellation number. (no email cancellations or phone messages)
• There is ALWAYS a 10% Cancellation Fee
• 15-day notice or 30-day notice (for some reservations) is required to shorten or to cancel a reservation.
• Shorter notice requires re-booking of entire stay without loss to Anchor Inn for refund.
• One night reservations, SAME DAY cancellations and rooms cancelled less than 2 days before the arrival date are non-refundable.
• Weekends/holidays with minimum stay requirements, if shortened are non-refundable.
• At least TWO days notice is required for all cancellations.
• Vacancies caused by late arrivals or early departure due to weather or any other circumstances are considered to be cancellations.
• If the ferries are running normally, we expect guests to arrive as expected whether or not they planned to arrive by ferry or plane. Arrival is based on the decision of the ferry captain. If all ferries have been cancelled on a given day then a credit towards a future stay or refund will be issued for that night's lodging. Once ferry service resumes guests are expected to arrive for the balance of their reservation. Travel delays, missed connections from airports, medical or any other travel issues will not merit credits or refunds. These potential unforeseen problems are best addressed with travel insurance which we recommend.

Group reservations (3 rooms or more), weddings, some holidays, events, and reservations of 7 nights or longer require 30-day notice to cancel or to change a reservation.
