We spent a week this summer dividing my time between the Summer House Cottages in Siasconset and the Summer House on Fair Street and it was one of the most relaxing, pampered vacations I have ever had. The setting of the inn on the ocean is beyond compare and the cottages have an understated charm that is anything but hotel...

The Summer House at Fair Street was a HUGE disappointment. Many promised amenities were not offered: no turn down service, no robes in rooms... There were BUGS in our TINY bath room and the towel rack was about to fall off the wall. The gardens were full of weeds. The "complimentary breakfast" consisted of cereal, bread, muffins one day and...

We have stayed a number of times at the Summer House Inns in Nantucket town, both on India St and on Fair St and we have always enjoyed our stays there. We agree with another reviewer who praised the ladies who cook the breakfast and clean the rooms. They are hardworking, courteous and efficient and have always been responsive to...

I truly wish I was able to write a favorable review for the Siasconset property however my recent vist there was marked by an unfortuante experience which speaks volumes about the quality of service offered at this Inn. My girlfriend and I visited the summer house in early july for three nights. I was planning on proposing to my girlfriend...

The Summer House is a very special place but, it's not for everyone. Decidedly unpretentious, it is all about barefoot luxury. Want to get pampered by a hushed staff who bow and scrape, and hang with the wispering crowd, then this is not the place for you. However, if you appreciate simple luxury and old world, bygone charm, well, then...

We stayed at the Summer House 18 years ago for a week and it was lovely. Recently we thought it would be nice to take our daughters to Nantucket for a week next summer. After reading these reviews I could not believe that it has become this bad so I decided to call the Summer House myself and ask directly...

We didn't stay at the Summer House because we left it too late to book - but ventured out to lunch at the 'bistro' overlooking the sea. The waiters were very friendly and efficient although the place is poorly served by a garrulous restaurant manager. We witnessed two groups of customers - one a large group of golfers - reach...

I just got back from staying at the Summer House Inn on India Street. I chose the property for its location right in town and the fact that you still have access to the Summer House amenities in Sconset. Most importantly, there is a shuttle that takes you back and forth. Or so I thought... When I got to the...

I am currently at the Summer House and felt compelled to write this review after notifying the manager that there is mice in my cottage. It was actually the final straw. For $600 you get a run down cottage with poor air conditioning and missing light bulbs. The grounds around the cottages are very poorly maintained. I understand the "understated"...
