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!

I spent three nights at this charming B and B that is close to everything. The Innkeeper, JeanE, is gracious, informative and helpful. She has an excellent breakfast of fresh fruits, breads, oatmeals, juices and coffee every morning. The B and B itself is immaculate, with decor that is classy and fitting for the house. The grounds are beautifully landscaped... More

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
