We stayed three nights in Barntucket and had a great time. The charm of the place is its old-world feel, rustic appearance but fully modern appointments, and especially the great kitchen. My “gourmet chef” grade brother-in-law found everything needed to showcase his talents. Having family and friends lounging in front of a fire, sipping wine while your friend prepares epicurean treats is definitely the way to go. You just cannot replicate the environment with a bed-breakfast or hotel, no matter how inviting. Barntucket is a short walk from downtown Nantucket, so everyone has freedom of individual exploration, while serving as the rallying point for social fun. You will be comfortable while bonding, with plenty of room for slipping away when needed. I highly recommend Barntucket for that unique island experience.
