Welcoming atmosphere distinguishes island inn

Even though it is in the hub of Nantucket’s busy historic district, the Jared Coffin House maintains its status as a peaceful island retreat, earning tripadvisor’s certificate of excellence for 2017. Guests begin their day with continental breakfasts featuring freshly brewed coffee, fresh fruit and an array of scrumptious pastries. Then, at day’s end, sumptuously furnished rooms, many with four-poster beds, beckon guests to unwind after their time at nearby beaches, intriguing little shops or world-class restaurants. The inn, built in 1845 by ship owner Jared Coffin, prides itself on personal service, including a concierge to help with plans and tickets even before you arrive, and a welcoming atmosphere, from cozy common areas to a charming terrace and garden.
