We had never been to Nantucket and decided to visit while traveling through Cape Cod in June. We found the Safe Harbor Guest House online and decided to book there. I called the inn directly and spoke with Lisa, the innkeeper. She was very helpful in describing Nantucket, the inn's location, and things to do. We booked a room with balcony on the second floor. When we arrived about 1:30, the front door was open, but no one was there. We saw a welcome letter on the entry table with our names, directing us to our room, which had a key in the doorknob. We settled ourselves in and afterwards heard someone in the hallway; a nice gal who apparently works there said hello and told us the time for breakfast. In a nutshell .. our room was nice & clean, comfy bed; breakfast was good (wonderful muffins), though when we went downstairs for breakfast the first day no one was there, we just helped ourselves. The location is good, just a short walk into town and Children's Beach. I've stayed at many inns over the years, and this experience felt a little different ... we heard walking around up/down steps and in other parts of the house, but didn't see anyone associated with the inn other than the first gal. We never did meet the innkeeper (perhaps she was away), which I would have liked. Some of the other guests also seemed puzzled. We did appreciate the fireplace and books in the inviting entryway one rainy morning! All in all, a nice stay in Nantucket if you are comfortable without the warm-and-fuzzy.
