We stayed here twice this summer. As busy as Lisa was/is, she let us leave our bags hours before check in, offered us breakfast and this was in late August,very busy and this was our first time there. We stayed in small East room and it was sweet and inexpensive. Next time was the larger and lovelier north room, bed... More

We stayed at safe Harbor for two nights in September. It was not enjoyable. The couple who run this place are not at all friendly hosts--in fact we talked with them very briefly only when we arrived. The bed was very hards and lumpy, the bath drain was plugged, the place very tierd and dirty. The morning b'fast was just... More

We stayed one night in June and wish it could have been longer. Great location by Childrens beach. Easy stroll to shops and restaurants. The restaurant across the street was great. Staff let us leave our luggage after checkout until we regrettably had to depart on the last ferry of the day. Affordable, comfortable and great memories from a 20... More

We have stayed at the Safe Harbor Guest House with our dogs before. Once again, the Safe Harbor Guest House was a great choice. We stayed in the West Wind room. It had a private entrance which avoided needing to track through the main house with two large dogs. The Safe Harbor Guest House is one of the best values... More

I stayed here last minute, while in town for the Nantucket Film Festival. The Safe Harbor staff worked very hard to fit me in. It was a terrific choice. The rooms were charming and rustic....very quiet, clean and comfortable. I really liked the Zephyr room with it's little balcony. I found the staff is always around, but does a terrific... More

I cant rave enough about the wonderful treatment that we received from Lisa and the Gang!! I look forward to seeing them every year, and hope to continue this yearly visit for many years to come. From the fabulous West Room (just wish there were black out shades!) to the abundance of freshly baked breads, cakes, cheeses and fruits this... More

The Safe Harbor Guest House reminded me of my great aunt's house on the coast of Maine. There were flowers in the gardens at the front of the house and a welcoming porch with comfy seating. Inside there were lovely antiques and sofas with good lighting for reading. Lisa, the innkeeper, took us up to our room which was clean... More

No place can be all things to all people. On the other hand, Safe Harbor guest house in June is like a rainbow: seems like a mythical thing until you see one. Even then, its hard to imagine such a perfect mix of style, location and amenities exists for us. Our skinny: young couple, small dog, small child, traveled in... More

Mike and I thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Safe Harbor. Our room was nicely furnished and very spacious. The Inn was in a very convenient location which we appreciated since we chose to walk everywhere. Breakfast was very nice (fresh fruits, vegetables, breads, muffins, cheeses and cereals)....just wish coffee had been made available earlier. Mike and I are... More
