The Century House and its owners are the epitome of adorable. We had such a warm welcome from the owner JeanE, who told us all about the house and gave great reccos of places to go on Nantucket. The personal attention she and Gerry put into every detail really shows, making this a true bed and breakfast with lots of... More

We stayed there this past weekend while we were doing hair and makeup on the island for a wedding and had the best experience. The accommodations were great, the owner was fantastic, and it is located within an easy walking distance to downtown - perfect. On a side note, we left some items in the hotel room and she immediately... More

This was our first visit to Nantucket and the Century House. Jean made us feel right at home from the start. Our room was cozy and comfortable. We loved the wonderful breakfast that was prepared each morning. I especially loved the selection of fresh fruits. And, we enjoyed eating out on the beautiful veranda. The location was perfect. Just a... More

We have stayed at a lot of B&B's. We stayed 4 nites. The brfst was the same everyday. Only thing hot was oatmeal, the rest was more like a continental brfst. Breads, jelly, yogurt and fresh fruit. We feel that it could of had some more of variety, such as eggs, or waffles or some type of casserole. The owners... More

My husband I have stayed in around15 B&B's on the Island for the past 20 years and consider the Century House the Best on the Island. The location is perfect! The Inn Keepers are such a lovely couple and the nicest people you could possibly meet! We spent 9 days there and loved it!! Their Scottish oatmeal and fresh fruits... More

My husband and I have been staying at the Century House for the past 8 years. The location cannot be beat as you are a short walk from town, Steps Beach, Something Natural (to grab lunch on the way to the beach), and many of the great shops/restaurants that Nantucket has to offer. They even provide guests with beach chairs... More

The Century House is by far the best B&B we have ever stayed at. Gerry and JeanE are so welcoming. The house is beautiful and immaculate. The breakfast is amazing...fresh fruit, jam, pastries, etc. The kitchen is cozy or eat outside on the porch or in the courtyard. And I can't forget the afternoon fresh baked cookies. We loved the...

The Century House is a gem located just out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Nantucket to help you feel like you really are away from it all with all the convenience you need. Jean and Gerry are not only wonderful hosts but are really kind, interesting people who made our stay even more magical. They always took the... More

We are regulars at the Century House. This was our 9th stay with Jean and Jerry. Location is great, a simple, pleasant walk from the ferry but not in a congested area. Lovely area to walk and enjoy the homes and gardens of Nantucket. We have stayed in most rooms by now and they are all decorated very nicely, clean... More

Great stay! Jean is charming and has great recommendations. The breakfast is delicious fresh berries and baked goods from Something Natural. Outdoor seating tucked behind a privet is a great place to hide away and let the world pass by. The fresh baked warm cookies were perfection. Highly recommend!
