Even though I was expecting to enjoy Nantucket (I had been there numerous times before), I was thoroughly surprised and happy how friendly, smart and funny the innkeeper, JeanE was when we arrived at the Century House! It was such a positive and enjoyable stay; impeccably clean; beautifully decorated to the period and filled with my favorite things: paintings and... More

We were pleasantly welcomed by the innkeeper, who was happy to give us the lay of the land. The room was clean. It was a short walk into town and restaurants. Afternoon cookies were abundant and delicious. Fresh fruit, breads, yogurts for breakfast were a perfect way to start the day. Jeane and Gerry and the entire staff were friendly,... More

This was our second time to visit Nantucket, but the first time to stay on the island. JeanE and Gerry were great hosts and the staff was willing to accommodate us with what we needed. The room was perfect for us and had a great view of the neighborhood. We loved the wonderful breakfasts, eating outside in the cool mornings,... More

First trip to Nantucket and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Century House. Jeane is an excellent hostess and provided great information about the area, and restaurant suggestions. Found the place clean and quiet in the evenings -- all important after a not so quiet experience in a previous B&B. The B&B is centrally located to incredible restaurants, and the WAVE... More

Have been coming to Century House for years and would never consider anywhere else. Gerry and Jean Ellen are like family; they always welcome the guests and have a genuine interest in ensuring that their stay is above and beyond. There's no better breakfast spread on the island, and the rooms are immaculate and perfect and very comfortable. Highly recommend!

I just returned from my visit to Nantucket. I have been going to the Century House for the last 20 years and would not consider going anywhere else! I think I have stayed in nearly every room at the inn and each one has its own special charm. I love Jeanellen and Gerry and the staff is always on the... More

I think with the B&B you have to go in with the right mindset and expectations. For me, I booked it immediately before, and spoke to the innkeeper JeanE. She is an absolute professional, both in the phone before, and in person when I went there. As far as the accommodation, the room is TINY. The bed is a queen... More

Jeane and Gerry are the cutest most warm innkeepers! This was our first bed and breakfast and we are so happy we chose the Century House. It is immaculate, lovely and peaceful, perfect for anyone that wants to relax! Thank you so much for making our stay memorable!

Where to begin? I've been coming to Nantucket since the late 1990s and have enjoyed my time at several different inns. But Century House stands out in several ways. 1. The Location. In the past I've been more centrally located in town, but I actually preferred that we were a few blocks away. This allowed my girlfriend and I to... More

Though lifelong New Englanders, this was my husband's and my first visit to Nantucket. How lucky were we to stay with JeanE at the Century House?! We loved our room: White Narcissus--coffered ceiling, beautiful wood work in the bathroom, comfy bed, spotless room, sumptuous towels and lovely body gels and shampoos. Though we were off the stairs, never heard another... More
