My boyfriend booked a 4 night stay to attend a conference being held at a nearby hotel. We received a warm welcome upon arriving and checked into the Geranium room. It was cozy, with a private bathroom. Given inclement weather during our stay, we really appreciated the wide porch that surrounds the Century House as it provided shelter from the... More

The Century House Bed and Breakfast offered a true flavor of all Nantucket has to offer. Owners were resourceful with all the many eating and entertainment locations. The home had wonderful art work and we met an artist on site.

Good location. Clean rooms and bathroom. Beautiful garden. Free wi-fi. But the people running the place are eccentric to say the least. They are not good about reading body language so if you are trying to tell them you don't want to talk without saying it out loud they won't get the message. We did hear some of the rules... More

I've been visiting Nantucket for over 35 years, both for pleasure and business. My stay last month was my second in two years, and I have to say that Century House is high on my list of favorite places to stay! The inn feels like a home away from home. Jerry and JeanE take great care and pride in the... More

This was my first trip to Nantucket and my stay at the Century House was perfect. The innkeepers and staff were all friendly and very helpful with suggestions about the island's beautiful natural spots. The accommodations were beautiful, charming, authentic and immaculately clean. I wouldn't change a thing and can't wait to go back.

This was a quick get away for me and my husband in June before the crazy summer starts. It was a completely relaxing trip highlighted by a lovely stay at the Century House. The room was adorable (Tulip) with a comfortable bed and cute bathroom. The inn keepers warm and welcoming. The afternoon cookies were my husbands favorite time of... More

This is our second trip to The Century House, our home away from home. The Sweet Pea room is accessible from a beautiful covered porch with a table and chairs, which we enjoyed at the end of each day. Only minutes from downtown or the beach, it's always ad adventure admiring the beautiful homes and landscaping on our way. Gerry,... More

Century House is the ideal B&B in the ideal place! The rooms are well appointed and lovely-each one unique in its charm. The fresh linens and comfortable beds are so welcoming after a day of sightseeing. When you awake refreshed, enjoy a sumptuous breakfast of delicious oatmeal with fresh berries and an array of fruits, yogurts,muffins and several wonderful breads.... More

Very comfortable, clean and charming in so many ways. Really a must if you are visiting Nantucket island in the near future....you don't want... More
