We stayed here for my birthday in march. We stayed in the master suite. It was beautifully appointed and decorated. We had arranged to have a cheese platter and champagne for our arrival and it was beautiful. The inn keeper was so accommodating and friendly. The bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was also great. We loved being here on... More

Tony V I just attended a wedding in September on Nantucket and as great as the wedding was, the Centerboard Inn was just as memorable. My family took up 5 of the rooms and they were all beautifully kept up and roomy. The location is perfect for walking to almost all locations. I'll also like to give a special thanks... More

This was our third visit to this Inn. It was again a very pleasant stay. There was a different innkeeper this year. Barbara made our stay quite pleasant. We really love visiting this place and it works very well for our family of 4, for which accomodations aren't easy to come by on the island.

Our family stayed here for 2 evenings for a wedding and had reserved 3 of the rooms on the 2nd floor. Barbara, the innkeeper, greeted us and gave us a quick tour/orientation to the Inn. We had stayed here before ~8 years ago and the improvements and renovations that have been done since then are amazing. The cottage-like feel of... More

Dear Michelle, It was so much fun having your family stay with us at The Centerboard Inn for the wedding weekend. I'm so happy you liked the renovation since your last stay. You were ALL so much fun. We look forward to your return, and hope it becomes an annual event. Cheers! Barbara More

The Inn is very nice and the location is convenient to town and beaches. However, we found the innkeeper not attentive to our needs. I will share just two examples. There were three of us in a queen bedded room with a pullout sofa. We called to ask for additional towels and instead of being nicely instructed to look in... More

Dear Ellen. I am so glad you enjoyed the Centerboard Inn. We did indeed set up your room for three guests. Its too bad you called after I had gone to sleep, to alert me that you had only two sets of towels for three people. I knew there were more than enough towels as I had personally checked each...

Only a few relatively minor issues kept our short stay from being a perfect "5". We were on the second floor with a restaurant across the street. Both nights, what I suspect was the crew doing clean-up were pretty noisy in the street for about 30-45 minutes. Not normally an issue but this was at 1:30 AM. Not the fault... More

Dear Steve. Thank you very much for that thoughtful review. I have since spoken with the restaurant owner, who apologized for the noise across the street. Thank you also for noting the "exceptional" Centerboard staff... it's just me, an intern and a housekeeper and we do our best to make sure you are comfortable and enjoy the island. See you... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during a week-long trip to the Cape and Islands. We had brought our bikes over on the ferry and it was only a short walk from the ferry to the inn. As we arrived at about noon we were lucky to be able to check into our room early as there really would't have... More

It's like you got a whole extra day at The Centerboard :) And I'm glad you enjoyed the amenities. I wish you had found me or called if you needed anything, big... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Centerboard. The inn is conveniently located and just a short walk from the docks. Barbara, the innkeeper was very welcoming. We brought our bicycles with us and were pleased to find a bike rack in the back. Barbara suggested several bike trails and sights to visit on the island. We also met the owner,... More

Hello Mr J! Thanks for your great review. All that you said is true, including the showers being small. I suppose it was tough squeezing bathrooms within every guest room in this 1880 house. Luckily they were able to fit, rather than having shared baths. There are some rooms with bigger showers. I hope you request one of them on... More

We stayed here for two nights during a busy summer weekend. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I loved the beach towels in the lobby and the breakfast was great too. I would go back and stay here.

Thanks Travelgirl. I'm so glad you enjoyed your getaway weekend. I would love for you to come for a longer stay and really experience the island. Off season, especially the fall, it is a lot quieter on Nantucket and you can explore the wide open areas; beaches, moors, bogs, trails... with unobstructed views for miles. Barbara More
