Nantucket, MA – Callahan Construction Managers announced the start of an interior renovation project at the Jared Coffin House. As one of the oldest hotels in Nantucket, it embodies the essence of this former whaling town.
Designed by EBI Consulting, the project includes the addition of four new hotel suites and one deluxe guestroom, renovation of the lower-level Tap Room restaurant and bar, and upgrades to the property’s entrance and outdoor amenities.
A landmark hotel, Jared Coffin House is situated in the heart of the island’s historic district. The inn is undergoing a restoration both inside and out. Callahan has been tasked to upgrade the existing ground level, creating four family friendly suites and one deluxe guestroom with interiors curated by the talented Nantucket designer, Audrey Sterk. Many of the suites have large bay windows offering views of Nantucket’s historic streetscape.
Renovations addressing accessibility will also take place at the hotel, including installing a new lift and providing access to The Tap Room and elevated first floor of the property. A complete remodel of The Tap Room will connect the space with the main hotel lobby and patio, while updating the entire interior with new bar, restrooms, and seating areas. The overall scope for the construction is 5,200sf.
The transformation of Jared Coffin House’s ground floor and the addition of the new suites are expected to be completed by May 2020 in anticipation of the busy Nantucket season.
“Jared Coffin House holds a very special and important place in the history of Nantucket,” said Steve Callahan, vice president of business development at Callahan Construction. “We are very excited to build upon the hotel’s rich history and tradition by creating a one-of-kind experience for its visitors that will be enjoyed by generations to come.”
The Tap Room, a year-round island favorite, has a much anticipated reopening. It will be operated by Nantucket Prime.
