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

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

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

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

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

We stayed at the Centerboard Inn for our one year wedding anniversary and cannot say enough about it! Barbara was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the island, what to do and more importantly where to eat! We cannot thank her enough! The Inn is LOVELY! The rooms were beautiful and very clean with a beacy feel which is perfect for... 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.

The location, amenities and staff cannot be beat! We visit Nantucket often and decided to try the Centerboard this visit after we stopped in on a prior visit to Nantucket. We were not disappointed in anything. Our room was ready upon arrival. The breakfast each morning was amazing. They have beach chairs, towels and umbrellas to use for your trip... More

My husband I were on Nantucket for a surprise party and decided it would be romantic and fun to stay at a bed and breakfast. The Centerboard is the Inn we chose. You can't beat the location, which is walking distance to town. We liked our room. Our king-sized bed was extremely comfortable. Our room was small but nicely appointed.... More

Service and cleanliness could use improvement. The room we had was upstairs and no one offered to carry our bags upstairs nor upon check out to bring them downstairs. The downstairs lobby looked tired with the dirty rug on the floor. We had to use the restroom on the main floor and to get to it you had to walk... More
