“Century House is Fabulous!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

The Century House is our home away from home. Gerry, JeanE and Otilia are terrific hosts and inn keepers. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the breakfast is amazing. The Century House is in an ideal location between Town, the beaches & Something Natural. I can't wait to visit next August with my beautiful wife. We love the Century House.

Where do I begin?!?! The Century House is such an amazing place to stay. My husband and I just stayed there for out 4th year in a row, and will be booking our trip for next year shortly. I honestly can't imaging staying anywhere else on island. The location of the Century House is great, walking distance to town, to Something Natural for a sandwich before hitting the beach, and many great restaurants. It is also a short walk to the ferry. The innkeepers put out an amazing breakfast of coffee, juice, an abundance of fresh berries (you name it, and they have it), along with the best oatmeal you will ever have, breads, muffins, jams, and yogurt. The staff is truly welcoming, helpful, thoughtful, and friendly. The Inn is impecably clean, you really will feel like you are at home. We consider the innkeepers to be like family! We truly love the Century House!! Can't wait to be back!

Room Tip: All of the rooms have been recently renovated, so really just pick the one you like the best. We al...

We spent three days at Century House. The place is cosy and elegant, well situated minutes from the center of town. The rooms are small, but elegantly decorated and comfortable. Breakfast is simple, but the products are first quality. A pleasant little garden to rest and look to one's mail after cycling in the island. The plus are the owners, Jean and Jerry: cheerful, friendly and interesting.

Although this was one of my many stays at the the Century House, a quintessential Nantucket B&B,it was my most memorable.
Although I have had the pleasure of staying in nearly every room this quaint home has to offer, this last visit I had the most delightful time in the room just down from the porch leading to the private patio. During the evening of the June Super Moon (a most mysterious sight btw) while having a quiet conversation with a close friend we remarked on how peaceful the whole experience was.
This patio is so private that passersby were totally unaware of our activities behind the flower laden fence. It was a most delightful experience to say the least, we both had a great time that evening.
I recommend this experience to all who choose the Century House for their next stay in Nantucket! A definite thumbs up from this reviewer!!

Room Tip: Any room in the B&B is wonderful but be prepared for the climb to the third floor. I've stay...

The Century House is a beautiful B&B, with such charm and welcoming hospitality. Very convienently located walking distance to downtown town & Ferrys. We've stayed there the last two years, and our room has a private balcony, which is so peaceful in the morning with our coffee and fresh berries.

Everything was wonderful. Hospitality, convenience, comfort.... Slept like a baby in the plush bedding and quiet atmosphere. Woke to a grand selection of treats each morning. JeanE was such a warm and delightful caretaker. Would highly recommend the Century House for your next Nantucket excursion.

Room Tip: Black Orchid was 1st floor and quiet with private balcony.

I just returned from my seventh summer vacation at the Century House. That should say it all! From the moment you arrive you feel relaxed and welcome. Beverages and baked goods available all day. Otillia is always helpful in planning your restaurants for dinner either upon your arrival or by email before you arrive; I've never been disappointed in her recommendations. The rooms are quaint and comfortable and the little extras like refrigerators and microwaves add to the convenience. Breakfast on the welcoming covered porch gets everyday off to the right start. The Century House is a definite 10!

Room Tip: We have stayed in many of the rooms in the seven years we have stayed at the Century House. My daugh...
