This was our (three sisters celebrating a birthday) fifth visit to Nantucket and the best part of our visit was staying at this inn. The room was tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean with fresh smelling bedding and a bottle of wine awaiting us. Our room, The Houseboat Studio, had a separate entrance, off a patio area with table and chairs, that gave us the feeling of having our own little apartment. In the evening we enjoyed the gas fire pit that sits nestled in a cozy space beside the inn.
But the best part of staying at the Centerboard is Debbie Adams, the resident innkeeper. When we arrived early and couldn't get in our room yet, she treated us to freshly baked coconut cupcakes in the breakfast room. Nice!
Each breakfast was a true delight with such things as freshly baked cheddar scones, blueberry bread pudding, fresh fruits, granola, toast, etc. This is not your average B &B breakfast.
Debbie Adams is a truly lovely person who will go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Whatever the owners are paying her----it's not enough! She is a gem!
