The Story

Nearly 200 years ago, Captain Robert Calder built a Federal-style mansion atop one of the highest points on Nantucket. After experiencing generous receptions in ports across the Atlantic, he turned his home into an inn and opened its doors to travelers in 1833. We designed our House as a nonchalant innkeeper’s eclectic escape that reflects her flair for cultivating the island’s native botany and practicing holistic wellness.

Guest Rooms

Welcome home to your coastal escape, where nods to the island's native flora fill each guest room with an air of Nantucket nonchalance. Inspired by a worldly innkeeper, we designed our sun-soaked rooms with raffia writing desks and botanical rain showers. Our other amenities need no introduction. You’ll find the Le Labo bath products, Revival New York linens, and Marshall speakers you know and love in every room.
