Experience the leisurely ambience and delightful charm of the Cliff Lodge as a special place that always beckons you to return. Built in 1771 by a sea captain, occupied for a half century by Nantucket's leading female poet, and recently restored to its former lustre, the inn combines the charm and romance of a bygone era with all the comforts of home. With its many comfortable gathering areas, its fireplaces, the luxury of its rooms, its peaceful garden patio, and of course its spacious roof walk offering panoramic views of the town and the harbor, the Cliff Lodge is a place of easy elegance that can make you forget that you have ever worked for a living. We serve a bountiful continental breakfast prepared by our pastry chef, featuring her famous homemade granola and scones, another pastry, cereals, fruit, juices, gourmet coffee and tea, each morning. In the afternoon, we serve homemade treats and we are the only inn on Nantucket (other than our sister inn, the Martin House) to offer regularly scheduled afternoon teas. In the heart of Nantucket's historic district, the inn is just a short walk from all the shops, beaches and restaurants in town. 12 rooms with private baths, air conditioning, televisions and free wireless internet access; many guest rooms with working fireplaces.

Nantucket's historical attractions run the gamut from old mills to island history to architecture to art and antiques.... Cliff Lodge puts you right in the middle of it all. Take a short stroll to the center of town, where you'll find Oldest House , the Old Mill and the Old Goal . Many structures have been designated by the Nantucket Historical Association, but if you walk down any of the streets fanning out from the nearby town center, you'll stumble onto your own finds. , , Don't miss central Main Street, particularly the three handsome Georgian mansions known as The Three Bricks. Nantucket is home to the nation's largest collection of eighteenth-century buildings and miles of the world's most pristine beaches, all just minutes or an easy walk from the Inn. , , Endangered plant life and wildflowers abound on Nantucket and include the Russian olive, winterberry, hawthorne tree, Rosa rugosa, the tupelo tree, pink lady's slipper orchid and Indian pipes. More than a third of the island has been protected and will never be built upon. These wild expanses are open to the public for nature walking, hiking or bird watching. In fact, Nantucket lies on the north-south flyway of migrating birds, making it very popular with serious bird watchers. , , Nantucket Harbor and surrounding waters are famous for Nantucket bay scallops. Bluefish and striped bass abound from May to October. Dating back to its beginnings as a famous whaling town, Nantucket offers some of the most extreme deep-sea sport fishing in the world. Even if you're not trying to catch fish, you may catch a glimpse of seals, dolphins, tunas, blues, whales and the occasional mermaids frolicking in the surrounding waters. , , Nantucket is bejeweled with architectural gems and is blessed with refreshing sea breezes, miles of sandy beaches and vistas unchanged over the centuries. The Inn sits on a quiet street in the heart of Nantucket's Old Historic District, just a few minutes walk from the beach and the array of fine restaurants, galleries, museums and shops which line the famous cobblestoned Main Street.
