Lark Hotels, which earlier this year opened Captain Fairfield Inn in Kennebunkport, recently opened two more inns, the Chapman House in Nantucket, and the Attwater in Newport, both boutique hotels.

The Chapman, located at 20 North Water St. in a circa 1717 structure, has 11 guest rooms redesigned by Rachel Reider Interiors of Boston. The hotel is the sister property of Lark Hotel's 18-room Veranda House around the corner, which dates to 1684 and opened in 2006. Rates at the Chapman, which opened June 16, start at $129 a night. For more information, visit www.chapmanhousehotel.com

The Attwater, built in 1910, has 12 guestrooms, also redesigned by Rachel Reider Interiors, and is located at 22 Liberty St., within walking distance of Newport?s hot shopping and dining centers, Cliff Walk and the mansion district. It opened June 1, and rates start at $159 a night. For information, visit www.theattwater.com

Lark Hotels is run by Robert and Leigh Blood, who bought the Attwater for $1.05 million and Chapman for $1.45 million, according to Hotel Business magazine.
