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 any request we have had. We have only good things to say about Susan Manolis, the reservation manager. She, too has always been so delightful to deal with and I was surprised to read a negative review about another customer's experience.
We have never eaten at the Beach Bistro in Sconset at the Summer House and decided to have lunch there on a lovely sunny day last week. The restaurant was fairly empty b/c it was late in the afternoon and we asked to be seated at a shady table. We were told we could choose any free table and when I pointed out to the host the shadiest one, he told me "No, not that one, it is reserved". PS, it remained empty throughout our entire lunch. The menu is rather limited and we settled on salads w/grilled chicken. The waiter returned after some time, and told us that the restaurant was "out of chicken"!! We chose another item from the menu and when the food finally arrived, it was served by a waiter who was also carrying soggy towels draped over one arm, as he placed our plates on the table with his free arm. How appetizing. He was smiling proudly as he served the lunch, so I guess that no one ever told him that this was a no-no.
The location is so beautiful, but location alone can not tempt us back. Some one has got to set some better standards, especially at those prices.
