My wife and I spent a weekend on Nantucket this November and we stayed at the Centerboard Inn. The Centerboard is a quick walk to the center of town and literally directly across the street from American Seasons, one of the best restaurants on the island. Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Barbara, the innkeeper, was a great... More

This was the first time my husband and I had ever traveled to Nantucket. Our stay at the Centerboard Inn was amazing! We loved the beautiful room we stayed in and the bed was heavenly. Everything was so fresh and clean on the entire property, and also very tastefully done. The renovation transformed the Inn to an upscale boutique feel,... More

My wife and I have been to the island many, many times and have stayed at a number of the inns. This year we stayed at the Centerboard. It was our best experience. The inn is within walking distance of town, in a very quiet neighborhood, and is an oasis. Our room was very comfortable, quiet, and nicely decorated. Our... More

Most of my trips to Nantucket are for business but staying at the Centerboard Inn makes me feel as if I'm on a relaxing vacation. I have stayed at a number of different places on the island and I prefer the Centerboard over any other location. The rooms are extremely comfortable and cozy. The bed was wonderful and I slept...

My Mom & I just got back from our trip to Nantucket & our five day stay at the Centerboard Inn & we truly had a great time. The Centerboard Inn was just as I imagined a Nantucket inn to be, from the decor to the food, it was all great. Our room (room 5) was adorable & though it... More

What a beautifully restored and maintained house. High ceilings, very clean and well maintained. Our room was on the 2nd floor, beautifully decorated, glass enclosed shower, king sized bed with comforter, large windows. The whole inn was well maintained and expertly operated by a very friendly owner. Tea time in the afternoon with homemade pastries, coffee and several types of... More

I'd always wanted to go to Nantucket, and I can safely say it was exactly as I hoped. That started with the Centerboard, our home base. My mom and I were welcomed by sweet Barbara and Luke the moment we got to the door until we moment we left a week later. Barbara cooked wonderful little baked treats in the... More

The Centerboard Inn was a great place to stay. Just enough out of town to be quiet,but still be able to enjoy town on foot. Barbara was so nice and hospitable. The room was super clean and easy access!! Breakfasts were great(so my husband says), I do not eat breakfast. They gave us great information on where to eat for... More

The Centerboard Inn was a great find for our honeymoon getaway! The accommodations were charming, comfortable and very stylish. Our room was nicely appointed and we felt right at home. We appreciated the continental breakfast each morning with fresh fruit and baked goods as well as coffee and tea. The location of the Inn was convenient to downtown Nantucket shops... More

My wife and I spent this past weekend at the Centerboard Inn on Nantucket. I give the entire experience a 10 out of 10. The Centerboard Inn fits in with the old Nantucket architecture, and boasts a beautiful, updated cottage style interior. Barbara was incredible. We got the the island around 8pm Friday evening and Barbara was waiting on us... More

Hi Ben. Thanks for that great review, noting the architecture and interior. I also love the look and feel of this 1880 whaling captain's home. You two are so wonderful. It was my pleasure to provide the extras, like the late-night ferry pick up.... which is impossible in the height of the busy summer season, but a fun welcome in... More
