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

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!
