Imagine the ocean breeze on your face, the warmth of sand beneath your feet, and the peace of a breakfast nook near the water…nothing spells out relaxation quite like a seaside getaway. At the Seven Sea Street Inn, a Nantucket Massachusetts Bed and Breakfast, island daydreams are reality.
Outdoor adventures await, from days at the beach to bike rides, hikes, and sailing. Inside, the Inn’s breakfast offerings and decorated rooms make staying in just as appealing. As a guest, you’ll enjoy the quaint charm of a classic New England town and the comfortable amenities of a classic vacation home.
An Idyllic East-Coast Island
Nantucket, a small island off Cape Cod, is replete with natural beauty. The island’s beaches are located within walking distance from the Seven Sea Street Inn—a relaxing day in the sun and sand is a must.
A variety of nature reserves are also located close to the inn, such as the Sanford Farm Wildlife preserve, which features trails to the ocean. It’s easy to traverse the island on bike, with accessible rentals from nearby shops like Young’s bike shop. Over 35 miles of bike paths stretch across the island, offering a relaxed (and socially distanced) way to take in the natural vistas.
Nantucket’s shimmering waters—Nantucket Sound to the north, the Atlantic to the south—are perfect for a variety of ocean activities, including whale watching, fishing, and charter sailing. The Inn’s concierges draw on their detailed knowledge of the area to recommend the best services, and a Guest Experiences app is available to plan a busy vacation week.
The Inn is tucked into Nantucket’s Old Historic District, an area whose cobblestone streets and colonial architecture reflect the island’s 17th-century roots. The island’s downtown provides an array of boutiques, wineries, and restaurants, as well as a vibrant cultural scene—from art galleries to theater and more. During your stay, you can dive into the island’s maritime history by visiting museums like the Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum.
Step into a Cozy, Seaside Home
The Seven Sea Street Inn has been welcoming guests since 1987, when it was designed to replicate an earlier post-and-beam colonial home. Seven Sea Street’s innkeeper, Matt, has drawn on his lifelong love for Nantucket to run the inn since its founding. Growing up as an “army brat” in New England, Matt first visited Nantucket as a child, and instantly felt the magic of the place—he and his sister promised not to take off their Nantucket rope bracelets until they could return to the island.
The home features eleven guestrooms, divided between the Main House and Guest House; all are decorated in a “cottage chic” style that evokes New England’s heritage. The Inn’s suites are equipped with fireplaces to complete the sensation of rustic charm and to warm the rooms through colder weather. They also feature rainshower-style showerheads and deluxe coastal bath products, among other amenities both practical and indulgent.
The Inn is well-known for its elegant breakfast offerings, which can be enjoyed in the Main House breakfast room—featuring socially distanced seating beside a crackling fire—or café-style, beneath sun umbrellas in the garden patio. The house also offers breakfast in bed for a luxurious, relaxed experience.
Served on Villeroy & Boch “basket” china, these morning meals include coffee cake, muffins, and yogurt. The innkeepers will be happy to share their recipes to help you continue the Nantucket experience at home.
Guests are treated to thoughtful details from the moment they walk inside the Inn. Local artwork hangs on the walls, with seaside décor hand-crafted by Nantucket residents. The island’s famed chocolate-covered cranberries await in fresh, airy rooms. For an evening cocktail, the inn’s back deck looks out on the harbor, where sailboats and seagulls abound—an experience as picturesque as stepping into a postcard.
