As always, we had a very relaxing and peaceful stay at the Summer House. The food was delicious and cottage as quaint as ever. Some reviewers comment on the chipped paint and outdated style, but I think it just adds charm and character to what is already an awesome one of a kind property on the island. I love sitting out in the front adirondack chairs watching the bunnies and enjoying the beautiful view down by the ocean. Will definitely be back next summer for another stay!
Thank Gina M

Don’t ever stay here. It has gone downhill. It’s in major disrepair, old , and literally no service. I asked for a taxi and they could t do it. Rotten front porch, moldy odor and ants in the room. On top of this we left some clothes in the closet. We asked for them to send them back and I sent them a shipping label. After numerous falls claims that they would send it (5) they are now not answering our calls. We have dealt with the owners daughter and she has repeatedly lied about them sending us the clothing. Sadly it’s the most beautiful property on the island and we have stayed there for many years. Never again.

Pleasant staff and good food but unfortunately the property itself was very tired and unkept both inside and out. Disappointing compared to previous years when stayed at same property. Hopefully the owners/management will be able restore the property back to the 5 star resort it once was.

We visited the Summer House for the first time last evening, for dinner. It had been highly recommended by a good friend. Upon arrival, we were pleased with the untouched beauty of the Inn and Cottages. The lawn was adorn with lovely planting’s and cleverly trained climbing roses. Baby bunnies grazed happily, seeming to be at ease in their surroundings. We were seated on the veranda, which afforded a view of the water. Once seated we were attended to by the competent staff. We dined on breaded oysters severed over pickled seaweed, and New England clam chowder. The oysters were mediocre and the chowder was satisfying but unsurprising. Our main courses were less than good. The Lobster Fri Diablo was served with prepared box pasta as was the clams in linguini. These entrees could not have been created or eaten by Todd English. I will however compliment the restaurant for their bread and wine. I had a delicious petit olive baguette and the house Chardonnay was very good, too. I’m afraid we won’t be back for dinner. Maybe we will try the bar when there is live music.

Our trip to Nantucket and The Summer House was so great last time that we returned again this year. The property is beautiful...CLEAN...peaceful and upscale. I wish I could stay at the cottages forever. Will return!
