I had reservations for the first weekend in October. We drove 4 hours through the pouring rain and a major storm to Hyannis to get a ferry over to the island. When we arrived all ferries were cancelled. I called the Century House to tell them that we were unable to get to the island. They told me too bad... More

First, Century House is darling. It is everything you would expect from a B&B on Nantucket. It is also located close to downtown, so although we were without a car, we had no trouble walking everywhere. Do beware of the cobblestones if you plan to wear heels for a night out though! We arrived too early for check-in and all... More

Recently spent 3 nights at the Century House on Nantucket ! The welcome was warm, the accommodations very comfortable. The property gives a feeling of staying in an elegant old-world home. The furnishings are classic New England style, with all the modern comforts of wi-fi, flat screen tv with DVD player. The location is close to town and near to... More

We have enjoyed 5 wonderful days! The Innkeepers are corporate “drop outs” & you feel this every second. They love their house and they enjoy their guests feeling comfortable. We met a lot of very nice people from the US and international. It was really fun. Thank You JeanE and Gerry for this wonderfull experience in the USA. Warmest personal... More

What makes this B & B particularly special is the host. She makes an all out effort to make one feel at home and succeeded for all 4 of us, 100%. The house and rooms are immaculately kept. The plethora of items to look at around the house, is almost sensory overload, but in a great way, all are very... More

Jean is just a wonderful and friendly hostess making sure to introduce guests and serve up delicious and healthy breakfasts with great veranda seating outside. The rooms are quaint and cozy with comfortable beds. We loved staying here for the beginning of our honeymoon! Perfect location to downtown, but far enough out to be quite at night. Would be great...

We truly enjoyed our stay, but I can't give 5 stars because the space is really quite small. There go all my fantasies about moving into a tiny house, because apparently I couldn't hack it. But room size aside, we loved our stay. As people note, JeanE is a wonderful hostess. You can't beat a lovely breakfast of fresh berries... More

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful 3-night stay at the Century House. Was looking for an authentic Nantucket experience at a semi-affordable price (by Nantucket standards) and were very satisfied with our stay. Location was perfect - short 5 minute walk to center of town on beautiful Cliff Road. 5-10 minute walk from beautiful Steps Beach and... More
