We just spent 2 nights at Centerboard Inn and had a wonderful experience there. Our room was pretty, clean and comfortable. We stayed in room 3 and the couple we traveled with was in room 4. Room 4 had a little bit more room than room 3, but they were both very pretty and comfortable. All guest rooms are on... More

Four of my friends and I stayed at the Centerboard Inn for a girls trip over Labor Day Weekend. We stayed in room 6 - located on the ground floor of the inn. It was the perfect room for us. It accommodated all five girls (and our luggage) comfortably. We arrived well before check in on our first day and... More

The Centerboard Inn was delightful! Barbara the Innkeeper was very helpful with suggestions and tips about the Island. The location was perfect for walking into town. The room was cozy & inviting, with amenities you would expect to find in a larger establishment. We will be back!

Our recent (early August 2016) stay at the Centerboard Inn was very enjoyable and the innkeeper, Barbara, was a gracious host. This B&B offers a bright and quiet environment along with satisfying breakfast options each morning: local roasted coffee, various teas, cranberry and orange juice, fresh fruit and an assortment of different pastries, bagels, and Portuguese sweet rolls. Centerboard's interior... More

We can't say enough about the Centerboard Inn and Barbara, the Inn Keeper. This B&B is beautifully decorated, very clean, and met our expectations in quality, service, & location. Barbara was very friendly and answered all of our questions. She definitely shares her love of Nantucket and her knowledge and directions helped us navigate through our daily bike trips and... More

This was my first time visiting Nantucket and it was a great experience. Barbara, the innkeeper, was so friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The rooms we so clean and comfortable, felt like home. Oh, amazing homemade baked goods for breakfast....can't wait to go back!

We arrived in Nantucket last week and we were very pleased with our service. Barbara was more than willing to help us with directions and guide us as to where to go in town, gave us her opinion on restaurants (so glad she did because she is quite the foodie and we appreciated her opinion) and made it very easy...

Year 9 of celebrating our anniversary on Nantucket. The folks at the Centerboard are charming, hospitality and very gracious. We had a great stay, and I really like the location. It is in a quiet part of town, which I greatly appreciate.

My daughter and I visited at the last minute for a two night stay, our first trip to Nantucket. Barbara the innkeeper was very gracious and helpful from the start. We were able to check in early, and Barbara gave us a quick tour and explanation of the inn and island. We were in room 3, which is small with... More

Thank you for this accurate review. All rooms are beautifully decorated by Nina Liddle, very comfortable, and appointed with fine amenities. Room 3 is the smallest and least expensive room. I'm so glad it was suitable for you and your daughter. That was a hot week on the island, and this week is only 70º on the island. I often... More

This is a very nice B&B. Right off the bat, we were allowed to check in early which is always a welcome benefit. We had one of the larger rooms in the basement level. Very clean, well laid out room. Bathroom is small but very functional. The beds are VERY comfortable with both a light weight blanket and a fluffy... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Guests often ask how our beds are so comfortable and the answer is; great mattresses. We have found the winning combination to be a 'memory foam mattress with built-in pillow-top.' All of our rooms have a private bathroom and most of our bathrooms are quite small due to the historic... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Formerly a whaling captain's family manse, the 1886 Victorian structure, now a popular Nantucket MA bed and breakfast, was completely remodeled by new owners Paul and Lauri Benk in 2012. The interior has been painted and detailed; the floors refinished; furnishings, fixtures, carpeting and rugs have been replaced; and perhaps most importantly, all beds have been replaced and fitted to be luscious and inviting; featuring fine linens from Frette, Matouk and Serena & Lily. Sumptuous down duvets top all beds at this Nantucket luxury inn, along with fluffy fresh down pillows (of course down-alternatives are available if you have allergies). Each guest room at this lovely Nantucket bed and breakfast has an individual refrigerator, air conditioning, and a beautiful private bath featuring Frette towels and bathrobes and Malin-Goetz spa amenities. Wireless Internet access is available throughout the Inn and iPads are now available for guests to use during their stay ... more   less
