Nantucket Bed & Breakfast


9 Cliff Road, Nantucket, MA 02554



Est. 1771

Guests feel pampered when they stay at Cliff Lodge, basking in the warmth of both its casual elegance and heartwarming comfort, the fresh cleanliness of its accommodations, the friendly atmosphere, the gracious helpfulness and dependability of hostess and staff... not to mention all the little extra-special touches that make their island holiday a superlative experience.

One such touch is the Inn's spectacular collection of original artwork of local Nantucket artists, including Paul Galschneider, Paul Arsenault, Bobby Boushan and Robert Stark. While most of the paintings gracing the walls and rooms are part of the owner's personal collection, some are part of the Inn's revolving collection and are available for purchase by guests.

Our twelve guest rooms are bright and air-conditioned "in season" comfortable with romantic quilted coverlets in the summer months and luxurious Ralph Lauren down comforters during the fall and winter. Many have working fireplaces and/or views of Nantucket Sound.

Returning visitors to the Cliff Lodge have come to regard the Inn as their home-away-from-home, embracing the easy elegance of the home itself and the incomparable hospitality of our hostess and our housekeeping staff. In fact, our guests are delighted to find the same people ready to maintain the pristine cleanliness of Cliff Lodge season after season. Relax in the restful, cozy, sunlit loveliness of the Inn's inviting and tastefully appointed rooms.

The buffet spread in the dining room each morning includes gourmet coffee, juice, fresh fruit, cereals (including our famous homemade granola), scones, and a variety of breads and home-baked muffins or pastries prepared by our pastry chef. Breakfast can be enjoyed on our Nantucket pattern Wedgewood china (what else?) using our real silverware in the dining room, in our peaceful garden patio, just out the dining room door, or in front of a crackling fire in the living room on chilly mornings.


Help yourselves to our wonderful home baked afternoon snacks when you return from you island activities each day. Enjoy the luxury and elegance of our special advertised weekends or holiday afternoon teas, featuring scones and pastries as well as finger sandwiches.


In additional to the above, we offer wine and cheese on Friday afternoon, in lieu of the pastries. Many guests take their treats out to the garden patio, to the chaises in the back yard or to the widows walk, where they can go to enjoy a peaceful spell reading, chatting with friends or merely enjoying the natural beauty of our colorful gardens or of Nantucket's historic harbor.

All these things and more make guests want to return again and again to Cliff Lodge... truly one of Nantucket Island's jewels.


All rooms are provided with free Wi-Fi and air conditioning in season.

Rates are subject to taxes and fees.

Cancellations must be received 21 days before scheduled arrival date. On shorter notice, you are fully responsible for the entire room amount, and refunds will be made only to the extent that we are able to re-rent the room without a loss to the Inn. There is a 10% service fee of the entire reservation for all cancellations made prior to the 21 day advance notice.


We welcome advanced bookings and want to encourage you to make Cliff Lodge a part of your long term travel plans. Naturally this makes good sense – especially if you're visiting us during the peak season. Book three months or more in advance of your scheduled arrival date and you'll be eligible for our advance booking rates.



Think of Cliff Lodge whenever you need a quick Nantucket getaway. Occasionally we'll have an unoccupied room between visitors – sometimes even our best rooms – that would make a perfect fit for your travel plans and your wallet.
