I booked a room a bit late last season and was hit with a $1500 charge for 3 nights which in and of itself would be fine if we had some amenities to go with the high charge. It was our first time on Nantucket and my wife's special birthday (I made that know when I called for the reservation)... More

Returning at the end of the evening to this handsome victorian and relaxing on the living room couch, chatting with friends, listening to soft music and sipping on a soda from the always replenished bar is the perfect prelude to a restful night's sleep in one of the air conditioned rooms overlooking Nantucket Harbor.The rising sun will greet you on...

We have arrived to Nantucket for quick vacation and the moment we stepped through the door we felt that the time has stopped and you can leave all the hectic life behind.. Jean and Garry, the housekeepers are the most welcoming and warm hosts you can imagine and make you feel at home or visiting family you haven't seen for... More

With a forecast for great early fall weather and a break in our schedules, my wife and I made last minute plans to return to the Century House, one of our first destinations in Nantucket over 30 years ago. We have been coming to the island for decades with our family. Now that the kids are grown, we returned to... More

My husband and I returned to The Century House, having last stayed at the Inn in 1979 under different ownership. Jean and her warm and cheery staff were most welcoming and quickly we felt right at home. The Inn is lovely with great attention to amenities, decor and cleanliness. We especially enjoyed visiting with Jean and the other guests over... More

Very cozy, warm. Love an old fashion interior style. Friendly and nice staff. A lot of books everywhere. You can just pick one, make a tea, take a blanket, read and relax in a nice room for guests. Very satisfied!

My wife and I decided to take a long weekend in Nantucket for her 40th birthday. This was our first time staying at a B&B and it was wonderful! The room we had was beautiful and very cozy with all the ammenities of a modern hotel but so much more warm and inviting. The location is perfect because it is... More

So warm, so welcoming. Couldn't have felt more relaxing for my husband and I on our anniversary. What a beautiful place. Quick, short walk into town center. Jean and Gerry made us feel completely at home. Cannot recommend this place enough for your time in Nantucket. Will be back soon!

This was our first time to the island together, so we relied on a co-worker to recommend a place. He certainly came through for us. This is everything a B&B should be. The location is a nice walk to town, but not too far. It's very quiet at night. The room was a king on the corner (Red Dahlia), and... More

WE had a wonderful time on our recent trip to Century House. This was our very first B&B experience so we didn't have much to compare it to but we thoroughly enjoyed it. There are a lot of B&B's in Nantucket but the owners are really what made it special. Jeane is so warm and compassionate, you feel like you... More
