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

This miserable winter of 2014 has me yearning for another visit to Nantucket, and the Summer House @ 27 Fair Street. Once there I feel cocooned from the outside world. If you did nothing else but look around at the old historic building you might enjoy all the beautiful nooks and crannies it has to show. The dining area alone... More

And over the years I have been accommodated in different rooms upstairs, downstairs, in the garden, in each the mattresses and bedding have been wonderfully comfortable and beautifully maintained. The bathrooms are... More

The bed in one of the 2 bedrooms had a mattress that folded in half like a sandwich on top of my daughter, effectively covering her up. When her sister got in with her, they rolled to the center and couldn't get back to their sides, the mattress was so old and worn out. The room was really tight with... More

Don't go. The "One bedroom suite" my husband and I were given at Fair St. was a moldy decayed basement room. Our front door opened to the back of the restaurant "Figs". Our view or " patio" included the trash, lights, industrial fan for Figs and also served as party headquarters to the staff of the restaurant at 2AM. When... More
