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

What a comfy and relaxing place to enjoy a very pricey but beautiful island! Loved the contemporary beachy decor. Our room (#7), was lower level, but cute and cosy. The extra loft bed was large and comfortable for even a tall adult. Barbara was welcoming and helpful in finding us lunch/dinner options. Breakfast was delicious, and had healthy options. Much...

Barbara was so hospitable and generous with her time. We loved sitting with her and hearing all her stories about the island--what to see, where to eat, history. She was very patient and answered all our questions. The Inn was beautiful....beautifully decorated---so quaint with all modern amenities. I will definitely return and steered others in the direction of The Centerboard... More

Absolutely beautiful B&B! So welcoming and delicious breakfast! Barbara was a true islander and made our visit wonderful - she knew her way around for sure! We enjoyed speaking with her every morning!

This was one of the best hotels I have stayed at on Nantucket, and one that I will come back to. The rooms are very high quality and they are also extremely modern. Also the beds are very comfortable, which is something that is hard to find.

When my wife and I travel to Nantucket, we always take our bicycles. The ease of use of bikes on Nantucket depends somewhat on where you stay. One way, narrow roads and heavy cobblestones can be treacherous. The Centerboard`s location offers a fairly easy in and out on bikes to town center and points south and west. From the Inn... More

The rest of the reviews cover the food, rooms, wifi, etc, very well -- and they're all excellent. This review deals with the owner, Barbara -- a truly genuine and caring human being. My wife, my 3 year old daughter and I went there for the Christmas Stroll. We were due to arrive Thursday night and leave on Sunday. A... More

My wife and I just returned from Nantucket and Christmas Stroll weekend, where we celebrated out 20th Anniversary. Having discovered the Centerboard on-line, I was at first a bit nervous. I must say, Barbara and Luke quickly alleviated any concerns I had. Their attention to detail, warm hospitality and willingness to do whatever it took to make our experience memorable,... More

My wife and 7 yr. old daughter had a wonderful stay over Thanksgiving weekend. So many times, reality is at odds with photos and optimistic descriptions that are posted online. In this instance, the two coincide. The room and accommodations exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at several other B & B's over the years, on the Cape, the Vineyard... More
