It doesn't feel like a B & B or a hotel. It feels like home when you step through the front door. The fireplace is always there in the living room for you to relax, anytime you want. No formalities just come as you are. Breakfast is leisurely with several comfortable places, inside and out, to enjoy the continental breakfast.... More

Absolutely astonished. Stayed at the safe harbor guest house for the 2015 Nantucket stroll at $250/night (same as the summer rate) They just doubled the rates making the safe harbor RIDICULOUSLY OVERPRICED. DO NOT STAY HERE IT IS NOT WORTH $450 to $650 a night PLUS ABOUT 12% state/local sales/lodging tax. It is NOT a luxury hotel. It is a... More

sooo, i come here yearly. the staff is great and super accommodating. the added curtains in the West Wind really helped.

We loved the innkeepers they were friendly and accommodating !!! The house is less than a few minutes to town on foot. No need to bring your car. Very nice rooms for a bargain price. Nantucket is one of my favorite islands and now the Safe Harbor guest house will be my new favorite place to stay !!! Thanks

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.
