Because the Sherburne Inn is a small and intimate property located on an island 25 miles out to sea, cancellations affect us greatly.  Last minute cancellations give us little chance to re-book your room. For this reason, we uphold a strict cancellation policy in common with almost all Inns on Nantucket.

If it is necessary to cancel your reservation for any reason, we will gladly refund your deposit with at least 14 full day’s notice from date of scheduled arrival. For cancellations 14 full days or less of the arrival date, no refund is possible unless we can re-book your room with no loss to the Sherburne Inn.

All cancellations are subject to a cancellation fee equal to 10% of the total.

Should it be necessary to arrive later or depart earlier than your confirmed dates, you will be responsible for all of the original room nights booked for your intended stay.

We realize that cancellations are beyond your personal control and often weather related.  For this reason we recommend purchasing travel insurance if you desire greater peace of mind. The Sherburne Inn will be happy to supply your travel insurance company with any needed documentation regarding our policy and your reservation.
