It's been an exciting and busy year at the Jared Coffin House, located in downtown Nantucket, just steps away from all of our world-famous dining and shopping.
If you're not familiar with the Jared Coffin House's rich history, it's worth a gander. This three-story mansion was built by one of the most successful whaling merchants, in the center of the town, back in 1845. At the time, it was the first mansion to be built on Nantucket.
Despite a fire and over a century of storms, the Jared Coffin house still stands today, operating for decades as a favorite hotel of Nantucket visitors.
2020 marks another exciting milestone in the house's history. In August, we finalized a massive renovation that resulted in the addition of 4 new and stunning suites (each named after a famous female Nantucketer), plus a new guest room, on the ground-level.
The Jared Coffin House commissioned Nantucket-native and interior designer Audrey Sterk, to ensure careful preservation of the historic, pre- civil war landmark during the revamp. Inspired by the colors of the sea and sand, the interiors will offer a color palette of foggy greys, robin-egg blues and soft neutrals. To complement views of Nantucket's historic streetscape, an extensive collection of original oil paintings will be on display – each piece hand-selected by the hotel's owners, highlighting Nantucket's whaling days. Bathrooms will feature white and grey tile floors and glass-enclosed showers.
From our signature Pratesi linens to vintage record players and one of a kind artwork, the suites are the perfect option for a guest who desire a bit more room and a plethora of natural light. All 4 suites feature a large open floor plan and can accommodate up to (4) guests. One of the suites even offers a private entrance for those seeking a more exclusive and personal stay with us.
We're also excited to announce that the opening of the Nantucket Tap Room, in the old Nantucket Prime space. While continuing to offer al fresco dining overlooking historic Broad Street from April – October, they will also now operate the newly renovated 62-seater bar and restaurant in the basement of the Jared Coffin House. Inside dining at the Nantucket Taproom will be open year-round, offering a modern interpretation on celebrated Tap Room staples along with their excellent steaks, seafood and delicious cocktails.
