We felt relaxed and welcome throughout our stay at this clean and quite Inn. Our trip began and ended with the innkeeper Barbara providing transportation to the ferry boat as well as providing to us local tips on dining and entertainment. We would love to stay again in the future.

We loved the Centerboard Inn. We stayed here with teens and enjoyed easy walks into town and dinner. The breakfast was delicious - as I recall it had variety and wasn't just a croissant and coffee -- and room spotlessly clean. Elegant nautical decor without any kitsch.

We stayed for two nights during the week in April. The Inn was very clean and in walking distance of the city center and most restaurants. Not all restaurants were open yet, so the Innkeeper provided us with an up-to-date list including recommendations, which was very helpful! She also gave recommendations on what there is to do on the island.... More

We recently visited The Centerboard Inn and had such an amazing time. Barbara was a fantastic host/innkeeper. She is extremely friendly, professional and provided great recommendations. Her ideas were spot on! We cannot wait to go back for another visit!

We were in town for business the Centerboard Inn was wonderful! Very comfortable, and the innkeeper was extremely hospitable. Breakfast was delicious and she was flexible when our travel arrangements changed due to weather and ferry schedules.

My husband and I stayed at the Centerboard Inn at the beginning of February and were thoroughly impressed. The inn was immaculately clean and beautifully appointed. The innkeeper was fantastic and willing to help with travel arrangements and dinner recommendations. She even offered to pick us up from the ferry which was so nice. The room was lovely- very comfortable... More
