We and another couple, good friends, just returned from Nantucket and a stay at Centerboard Inn. We all loved our stay and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to experience all that Nantucket has to offer. The Inn is casual and comfortable with a seaside decor and a warm ambience that makes you feel like you're staying in the...

Early September my sister and I visited Nantucket and stayed at Centerboard Inn. We were charmed instantly, immersed in the whole New England experience. We stayed in the down stairs Boathouse room and it was perfect for us, with the private entrance and quaint patio right out our steps. The best part of the inn by far however, was Barbara,...

Centerboard is located on a very quiet street in a residential area, easy walk from the ferry. The reception was very nice and friendly. Decor is chic modern and beachy. Clearly a lot of money was put into renovating this house to modern standards. My room was very pleasant, typical old Nantucket style, with modern touches. You can see the...

We only spent a night at the Centerboard Inn but it was a pleasant stay. The Inn is conveniently located to downtown, easy walking distance to shops, Whaling museum, stores and restaurants. The rooms was comfortable and the breakfast was tasty.

Thank you Jessica! For a tiny island, we really do have a lot to offer! I'm really into the food scene, as NantucketFoodie on social media and I write cookbooks, but I also enjoy exploring the island off the beaten path. So, if you want a tiny bistro or fine dining… or you want to relax on a secluded beach...

We had a very nice room on the second floor. Everything was very clean and it was very nice to have a Nespresso coffee machine in our room. A great way to start the day. Breakfast offerings were very good and a nice variety. Barbara, the manager was very helpful and answered all our questions. Would definitely recommend.

Hello! We just added those cute Nespresso machines to each room this summer and it has been a hit! Most guests don't realize we recently have new owners and that was one of the things they wanted to do right away. Other little changes they added might not stand out as much, but they all come together to make a...

Wow Suzanne. I am so happy we lived up to your expectations after your FIVE YEAR wait. My enthusiasm comes from my love of Nantucket. I knew the first time I visited the island I had to live here someday. Now it has been over 25 years of living here year-round and I am STILL discovering new 'favorite' places on...

We stayed at Centerboard for a long weekend (Sun-Tues). The inn is just lovely! It's everything I hoped for: clean, comfy, up dated, with tasty breakfasts and yummy cookies in the afternoon. Great location and Barbara was very helpful with biking directions and eating suggestions. We'll be back.

Thank you Donna! You came to the island at my favorite time of the year. September is SPECTACULAR and a little less crowded midweek, but weekends are sold out quite far in advance. See you again,

Thank you for your kind words Anne. You gave a great description of the inn, however, we actually have three floors of guest rooms. There are two rooms that accommodate larger parties, which enter thru the back patio(rooms 6&7). Those rooms are below the first floor, but not underground.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Formerly a whaling captain's family manse, the 1886 Victorian structure, now a popular Nantucket MA bed and breakfast, was completely remodeled by new owners Paul and Lauri Benk in 2012. The interior has been painted and detailed; the floors refinished; furnishings, fixtures, carpeting and rugs have been replaced; and perhaps most importantly, all beds have been replaced and fitted to be luscious and inviting; featuring fine linens from Frette, Matouk and Serena & Lily. Sumptuous down duvets top all beds at this Nantucket luxury inn, along with fluffy fresh down pillows (of course down-alternatives are available if you have allergies). Each guest room at this lovely Nantucket bed and breakfast has an individual refrigerator, air conditioning, and a beautiful private bath featuring Frette towels and bathrobes and Malin-Goetz spa amenities. Wireless Internet access is available throughout the Inn and iPads are now available for guests to use during their stay ... more   less
