We stayed there for a couple of nights in July. We had one of the apartments in the ground floor, which can conveniently host a family of four. The room was spacious and well designed. The only flow for me was the slight musty smell in the room and I think a better evacuation of air from the bathroom ,... More

We've stayed here every August for the past 4 years. The inn is very well suited for our family of 4 as it has a one bedroom suite with a pull out sofa. It is very well located close to town by foot or bike. The inn is for sale and I hope that doesn't change the high level of... More

This is a quaint inn in a great section of town. It's easy walking distance to shops, the harbor and Whaling Museum, but far enough from the center so it is quiet. Rooms are tastefully done with plenty of space. The continental breakfast has fresh fruit and tasty pastries, plus yogurt, cereal etc. You can enjoy it on the porch... More

Super romantic place to stay, despite staying here with three little ones. We stayed in a super room/suite on the ground floor which was beautifully decorated, original features, parquet flooring, fireplace etc... The room was a fair size for us, didn't feel cramped. Not a lot of hanging space as there were 5 of us in there, and we stayed... More

This was a wonderful place to stay on Nantucket. The inn is so comfortable and soothing. Our room was small, the bathroom in particular, but such a nice place to stay that the size of the room wasn't an issue. The bed was like a marshmallow and somewhere I dream of sleeping in again! I liked the breakfast. It's not... More

My husband and I visited Nantucket for the first time and stayed at the Centerboard Inn for two nights. This was one of the more reasonably priced hotels on the island. The place was clean and the rooms were very cute, though a bit small (especially the bathroom). The staff was friendly. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was just simple... More

The Centerboard Inn is everything you want it to be and more. It's well kept, close to town, provides yummy food, and has a friendly/welcoming staff. After 3 nights, I was sad to go & vowed to return!

A beautiful hotel on a beautiful island. Helpful staff. Nice breakfast, very tasty afternoon treats. Just a five minute walk into the heart of town and situated on a really pretty street. Room was quite small but very very comfortable and welcoming

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.

Centerboard Inn is run by Barbara Gookin, a local woman who has authored a Nantucket cookbook. She knows all the "ins and outs" of Nantucket and happy to share. The inn is nautical in design and spotless. Breakfast is tasty and served in the living/dining area or out on the front porch. It is an easy walk to town where... More
