We had a lovely time at the Century House. This BnB is within walking distance from the Steamship Authority Ferry. Checking in was easy. Our room was ready, so they checked us in early, allowing us to get settled quickly to start exploring the island. The outside sitting area is beautiful and charming with drinks available as you relax on... More

Nantucket is a wonderful island and the Century House is located to close to town and some great restaurants. The place has a wonderful veranda to eat breakfast, share some wine and meet people. The inside the inn is quite cluttered for my taste but any find it charming. Fresh water, lemons and limes are available at all times. The... More

My family of 6 stayed at the inn for 5 nights in July. Jeane was so warm, welcoming and helpful throughout our entire stay. Having the continental-type breakfast outside each morning was delightful, and the warm cookies all day were a huge hit with our kids (who are mainly teenagers). The location is ideal - halfway in between the town... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Century House and were not disappointed as the location is superb allowing you to walk to all the wonderful shops and restaurants and the harbor. The bed was truly heavenly and the porch and patio were an absolute oasis. The staff were extremely friendly and the breakfast was terrific. Need I say... More

Once again my yearly visit to the Century House on magical Nantucket was divine. After a day of painting out doors it was a pleasure to retire to my charming, comfortable, immaculate, quiet room. Waking to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee in the morning and a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit and crunchy granola while chatting with new friends... More

We had a lovely stay at Century House. You immediately feel at home when you arrive and the accommodations are warm and welcoming. Breakfast is most enjoyable because besides good food, you get the opportunity to chat with other guests and Jean, the innkeeper. One afternoon, we came home to the wonderful aroma of fresh chocolate chip cookies right out... More

So, my husband and I are sentimental people. We studied abroad and lived with families. We've hosted families. And Century House really feels like that - as if you are studying abroad..in Nantucket, on an adventure...and Century House is part of it. Right now - as I type this - we are staying in a different inn. We extended our... More

I visited the Century House in June for several days of Plein Air Painting. As I first entered the Inn, I was at awe with the antiquity of the house and its decor. A few steps further brought me in view of fresh baked scones filled with jam to go along with afternoon tea and coffee. Just beyond this is... More

My husband, his parents and I spent the weekend at The Century House and it was wonderful! We were welcomed the moment we got there and felt at home during our entire stay. The photos and artwork told stories along the halls and each room had character. The house had a lot of DVDs and books to borrow but we... More
