Our family first came to Nantucket and stayed at Safe Harbor back in the 70’s when it was a quaint and cozy B&B owned by an island teacher, Kippy Ingram. We fell in love with the island and spent the next 30+ years renting various houses during the months of August or September. Being away for quite some time, my...

I was excited to stay here after booking online through the website. Boy, was I ever wrong! Everything is misrepresented on the website. The rooms look nothing like the pictures. The bathrooms were gross. The balcony looked unsafe. There was a picture covering up a hole in the wall. No central heat, just space heaters. I had booked 3 nights...

My daughter and I visited Nantucket for the first time over Labor Day weekend. We stayed in the South Roomand we loved our room with the deck and the view of the water. I had read the reviews so I knew to look for a key upon our arrival at Safe Harbor after a short walk from the ferry. This...

When I made my reservations at this inn, I knew I was not staying at a luxury inn. I was expecting simple, clean accommodations. I liked the location( which is the only nice thing I can say about my stay, minus the ferry horn @ 6 ish every morning). When we arrived there was no one to be found. After...

Let me say something nice first: The room (West)was big and bright. The house is nicely located> That's it. The Innkeeper, Lisa, was a rumor. We found our room keys in an envelope by the door. We never saw her. We learned that breakfast breakfast would be served at 8:30 from a note on a chalk board. And so it...

My boyfriend and I came with another couple from NYC for a double birthday celebration and it was such a lovely, sweet inn! The innkeeper, Lisa, does such a nice job and puts out nice fresh fruit and a selection of breads/muffins in the morning. She is there and helpful if you need her, but gives you your space and...
