Nantucket, off-season, end of March, high winds and a possible 5 to 8 inches of snow expected….that’s the bad news. The good news, I’ll be staying at the Centerboard Inn which is simply the best. Barb and Lyn, resident innkeepers, made my first stay memorable and I am making my return visit based on the following: • A fabulous breakfast... More

What's not to like here, it's all so lovely. From the warm hosts Barbara and Lyn, to the delightful room and then the grand breakfast, one feels very comfortable at the Centerboard Inn. Arriving in the afternoon to fresh, home baked treats and genuine smiles adds a gracious touch that radiates welcome. Thanks for having us as your guests. We... More

Everything that you anticipate wanting will be fulfilled by your experience at the Centerboard Inn. Hostess' Barbara and Lyn offer delicious P.M. baked treats with tea and also a hearty breakfast - all exquisite. Even more, both offer good conversation, island insights and excellent, genuinely nice company. Their dining suggestions were perfect. We recommend the Centerboard Inn to all who... More

Coastal chic and fabulous. Often times in luxury overnight stays the powers that be spend money on the lobby or the rooms but very rarely both. This upper echelon boutique bed and breakfast exceeded our expectations and left us wanting more. My girlfriend and I stayed in Room One, anxious to see what the extra money afforded us and we...

I have stayed at Regatta Inn, their sister property, and love this spot just as much. I am usually on Nantucket for fun, but this time was there mid-winter for a business meeting. The rooms and common areas are beautifully decorated. Lyn, the innkeeper, is warm and welcoming. Do not make breakfast plans - you will want to enjoy the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Centerboard Inn for a quiet off season getaway. The inn is well located, just a short stroll from town. We stayed in the queen room, and had a wonderful time. My wife said the bed was the most comfortable she has ever slept in. The inn is wonderfully maintained and is decorated tastefully... More

My friends and I stayed at Centerboard Inn for several nights in early December. Our stay at the inn was perfect in every way...Debbie, the innkeeper, is absolutely lovely and a wonderful hostess. We loved her breakfasts and afternoon sweet treats, all of which she made from scratch every day. Debbie and her staff made sure our rooms were comfortable,... More

Off season was a very special treat at the Centerboard.. It starts with the Innkeeper,Debbi,who is not only pleasant and engaging,but makes whatever reservations one need,makes wonderful culinary treats,makes certain your room is just perfect,and expands your knowledge of Nantucket.A real treat,and can't wait to go back.

We had another perfect visit to the Centerboard Inn. As others have said, the location is an easy walk to downtown. The inn itself is a cut above – the rooms are beautifully decorated, breakfast is filling and delicious. What sets this inn apart from the others is Debbie, the Innkeeper. She is a warm and charming hostess, setting a... More

This was my 2nd stay at Centerboard, and it was outstanding! Deborah, the house manager, is beyond incredible. Truly one of the best bakers I have ever come across, not to mention her kind and friendly demeanor brings such a nice warmth to the Inn. The Inn is so comfortable, great location, and a wonderful way to experience Nantucket. Meg

Formerly a whaling captain's family manse, the 1886 Victorian structure, now a popular Nantucket MA bed and breakfast, was completely remodeled by new owners Paul and Lauri Benk in 2012. The interior has been painted and detailed; the floors refinished; furnishings, fixtures, carpeting and rugs have been replaced; and perhaps most importantly, all beds have been replaced and fitted to be luscious and inviting; featuring fine linens from Frette, Matouk and Serena & Lily. Sumptuous down duvets top all beds at this Nantucket luxury inn, along with fluffy fresh down pillows (of course down-alternatives are available if you have allergies).
