Hotel Description

Though it’s been here for ages, the Veranda House is anything but starchy. This 19th-century house, long known as the Overlook, has been in the family forever, but the new generation of owners have put it through a bit of a renovation — today’s Veranda House is retro rather than simply antique, and it’s the best of both worlds, sparkling new but still classic Nantucket in style.

A look at this place and you’ll see where it got its name; wraparound verandas on three levels look out over the gardens and Nantucket Harbor. It’s smaller than a luxury hotel, more stylish (and just plain more than a bed and breakfast — there’s definitely a niche in the market for this place. The eighteen rooms stop short of ostentatious luxury, but they’re not missing much in the way of comfort, from the plush Frette-clad beds to the subway-tiled rain showers to the flat-panel TV/DVD combos.

If you want organized activities and three-meal catering, then you’re probably staying at one of the big hotels down the road. Here they serve something called an “epicure-style” breakfast, which is essentially continental, but for foodies — like everything here, it’s smallish, modest in its ambitions, but just about perfectly executed.

Please note: The Veranda House cannot accommodate guests under the age of 10 years old.
