Traditional Elegance

The Matriarch (and namesake) of our collection of inns, the Roberts House was built in 1846 after the Great Fire destroyed a large section of Downtown Nantucket. Originally owned by the Roberts sisters—daughters of a whaling ship captain, the Roberts House was designed in a style typical of the whaling era during which it was constructed. It’s traditional interior design, classic front porch, and restored original wide plank wood floors are just a few ways in which the Roberts House honors its rich history.

Likely due to its central location in the heart of the downtown, the Roberts House was one of the first single family homes on Nantucket to be converted to an inn and has operated as such for over 100 years.
