For about 150 years, Nantucket was the whaling capital of the world. Many successful whaling ship captains built lavish mansions or cozy houses, giving Nantucket a unique, unmistakable look. You have a chance to experience this historic Nantucket spirit by staying in a renovated whaling captain’s former home, now lovingly renovated into the luxury Carlisle House Inn. Located in the city’s Old Historic District just minutes from restaurants, beaches, the Whaling Museum, and galleries, the inn offers thirteen rooms and suites, each with its own distinct vibe.
Charming period details such as canopy beds and oversized armchairs remind you of the inn’s past, but all modern amenities such as private baths, free Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs, and individually-controlled temperature control ensure you have all the comforts of the 21st century. Some of the rooms have fireplaces and Oriental rugs. Guests are invited to enjoy home-made breakfast every morning and cheese and wine parties on Saturdays.
