Hotel in Nantucket, MA
Nantucket Hotels - As one of the oldest hotels on Nantucket, Jared Coffin House embodies the true essence of the former whaling town, offering charming accommodations and a variety of modern day comforts.
Originally built as a family residence by Jared Coffin, one of the most successful ship owners of his time, the three-story brick mansion was the first of its kind on the island. In 1846, The Great Fire destroyed over two hundred buildings in the Nantucket community. While a third of the community burned to the ground, Jared Coffin House withstood the flames.
Today, Jared Coffin House stands as one of the oldest New England hotels, giving visitors a taste of Nantucket history and classic New England style that so many travelers know and love. It consists of the Main Building and the Daniel Webster, located next door.
*From October 20 - early April, 2017, the Main Building will be closed with guest rooms available in the Daniel Webster. The Main Building will reopen for Thanksgiving Weekend and Nantucket Christmas Stroll, 2016. For details and dates of Nantucket events, please see our Event Calendar by clicking here.
