Dirty rooms, terrible unhelpful staff, old moldy shower curtain, tiny TV! We switched rooms and found the second one larger but dirtier. We were told that the shuttle to the beach wasn't running even though the weather was perfect. Flies buzzing around the breakfast!

This is an old home converted into an B and B. There are no comforts of home - no phone, no outlets to plug in electronics. The door had a big crack in it- there was a cobweb above our bed, a stain on the love seat cushion. However, it is close to town and you can get their shuttle... More

We stayed at 27 Fair Street last October, and my boyfriend proposed in the Lavender Room! It was so romantic. Clean and quiet rooms. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Also, the restaurant and the inn next door at 29 Fair Street is haunted, but the ghosts didn't bother us:) We will always have fond memories of this B&B. Go in the... More

We stayed here for a long weekend July 31 - August 4, 2014. We took a taxi from the airport and were warmly greeted by the staff. Due to the central location we did not rent a car during our whole stay and walked to all of Nantucket's attractions and restaurants. They provide a shuttle at 10:30AM, 11:30AM and 12:30... More

We are pretty fussy, and this was the best we found by far, having tried loads of recommended places like Straight Wharf and The Galley- this had the best food, and the friendliest service by far. Lovely place , lit by candlelight, and near the centre. Highly recommended.

Last weekend I found myself in Nantucket for my 3rd. Wine Festival Weekend. I came up with a group of friends, all of whom stayed at the Summer House Fair Street. I was lucky enough to land in the upsatirs room named "Thyme" a large one bedroom, with a sitting area. The entire Fair Street experence is lovely. The Inn... More

Spring means Nantucket, Daffodils and 27 Fair Street B and B. Good vibes flow during my walk from the ferry past quintessentially Nantucket gardens and homes. I have stayed in many of the guestrooms. Each has been special, comfortable and quiet. "Rosemary" on the second floor fronting Fair Street is just as it appears on the website, and the mattress... More

Having stayed at the Gardenia cottage at 27 Fair Street numerous times, I cannot recommend this enough. It is the perfect rose covered cottage tucked in the back of the main Inn. The cottage has a very comfortable and quiet bedroom, as well as a day bed and two chairs in the living area. The day bed can easily accomodate... More

I've been going to Nantucket for nearly twenty years. Each time I find myself on the "Grey Lady" somehow it feels more like home, than home does. And when I'm lucky enough to be on island my favorite little rose covered cottage that's not out in Sconset is located at The Summer House Inn on Fair Street. Gardenia is a... More

Last fall, I had the good fortune of booking a room at 27 Fair street - an easy walk from all that's happening on and off the cobblestones of Nantucket town. Our cozy room was off the street, on the back edge of the garden. The bed was comfy, the reading lights bright, and in the small kitchen we fixed... More
