Welcome our New Innkeeper - Claire Theriault

Nantucket is never far away

Please join the Martin House family in wishing Tiffany all the best this world offers as she returns to the west coast. As those of you who visited during our 2019 season know, Tiffany’s light and joy lit and warmed the inn as well as our hearts. Our lives were enriched by her beautiful spirit and smile, her calm energy and kind humor. She will be missed, but her indomitable spirit will always be a part of the rich tapestry of our historic inn.  Bittersweet is the adjective that comes to mind as we wish her Godspeed, success and continued joy.  

 We are delighted to welcome Claire Theriault back to the Martin House Inn, after more than two decades away.  She returns, invigorated, with a huge heart and sweet smile, a genuine love for people and for the Martin House, and all the skill sets necessary to make your stay exceptional.  Her warm welcome will make you feel you’ve come home. Your warm welcome will make her know she has. 

Welcome Claire!

A Message from Tiffany 

To all the guests of Martin House Inn,

It is with a bittersweet heart that I offer my farewell to you all. I am returning to California to embark on independent business endeavors. I am thrilled for the life that awaits me. Still, it is with a great heaviness that I leave Martin House Inn.

Lisa, the owner of Martin House, is the most gracious, generous and thoughtful person anyone could hope to work for. I have learned so much under her mentorship.  I’m confident that my friendship with her will be lifelong. Likewise, my love and appreciation for Sari, the head housekeeper of Martin House, has affected my life in the most profound manner.  Her great will, drive, and compassionate spirit has made me appreciate more the divine nature of every day and the blessing of every breath.

 Indeed, I will always be grateful for the opportunity to have been the face of Martin House Inn.  It has afforded me the greatest gift of all, the opportunity to cross paths with so many wonderful people and I will cherish the many memories that were forged here. To the many fine guests I have encountered in my time here, I site Dorothy as she said to the Scarecrow upon her departure from Oz, “I think I’ll miss you most of all.”

Certainly, I was blessed to meet the most remarkable and fascinating people. I am confident that all will empathize with my sentiment however that “There’s no place like home.”  Now as I make my departure, join me in welcoming our new wonderfully effervescent innkeeper, Claire Theriault.  Her dedicated spirit will ensure you experience a one of a kind stay with her signature scones, savory breads and best of all, her warm smile. I know that Martin House Inn has an even more glorious future in her capable hands.

With love,

Tiffany Fernandez

Cheers to Martin House Inn
