Inspired by the grand homes on Nantucket Island, the Nantucket Whale Inn is conveniently located on the quiet end of Main Street in the charming and historic village of Half Moon Bay.

"The Innkeeper, David, and his husband, Jerry, have brought some of the East Coast charm of Nantucket Island to the West Coast. Their love of Nantucket is evident throughout the Inn. For those, who have had the good fortune to spend time on the faraway island 30 miles off Cape Cod and only reached by boat or plane, one remembers the beautiful grey shingle houses and grand mansions, rose covered cottages, the omnipresent hydrangeas and the tremendous respect for whales. The “Grey Lady,” as the island is affectionately called by locals, has the same wondrous misty, ethereal fog that sometimes blows through Half Moon Bay."
