Quintessentially Nantucket


Relaxed sophistication is the animating principle behind the Union Street Inn, where guests find a home base for Nantucket’s most exclusive experiences. Innkeepers Ken and Deb Withrow honed their sensibilities in the heart of New York creative life, under the banner of luxury brands like Henri Bendel and Ian Schrager’s sleek Royalton Hotel. Their vision for Nantucket hospitality has captivated travelers from around the world.
