Beautiful clean, modern rooms, perfectly decorated in true Nantucket style. Good choice at breakfast and little afternoon treats were always delicious and just enough to tide you over til evening meal. Inn within five minutes of downtown Nantucket. Barbara was an excellent host, we felt at home immediately and she could answer any question we asked her. Very knowledgeable on...

Wow Suzanne. I am so happy we lived up to your expectations after your FIVE YEAR wait. My enthusiasm comes from my love of Nantucket. I knew the first time I visited the island I had to live here someday. Now it has been over 25 years of living here year-round and I am STILL discovering new 'favorite' places on...

We stayed at Centerboard for a long weekend (Sun-Tues). The inn is just lovely! It's everything I hoped for: clean, comfy, up dated, with tasty breakfasts and yummy cookies in the afternoon. Great location and Barbara was very helpful with biking directions and eating suggestions. We'll be back.

Thank you Donna! You came to the island at my favorite time of the year. September is SPECTACULAR and a little less crowded midweek, but weekends are sold out quite far in advance. See you again,

We just spent 2 nights at Centerboard Inn and had a wonderful experience there. Our room was pretty, clean and comfortable. We stayed in room 3 and the couple we traveled with was in room 4. Room 4 had a little bit more room than room 3, but they were both very pretty and comfortable. All guest rooms are on...

Thank you for your kind words Anne. You gave a great description of the inn, however, we actually have three floors of guest rooms. There are two rooms that accommodate larger parties, which enter thru the back patio(rooms 6&7). Those rooms are below the first floor, but not underground. As you may recall, the front porch and front door of...

Thank you for your great review! Room six is the only room where we have three beds (2 queen and 1 twin) to accommodate 5 guests. Its called the boathouse studio for its decor, but also because it makes good use of the space with all sorts of built-in furniture to maximize storage space. It was our pleasure to provide...

The Centerboard Inn was delightful! Barbara the Innkeeper was very helpful with suggestions and tips about the Island. The location was perfect for walking into town. The room was cozy & inviting, with amenities you would expect to find in a larger establishment. We will be back!

Our recent (early August 2016) stay at the Centerboard Inn was very enjoyable and the innkeeper, Barbara, was a gracious host. This B&B offers a bright and quiet environment along with satisfying breakfast options each morning: local roasted coffee, various teas, cranberry and orange juice, fresh fruit and an assortment of different pastries, bagels, and Portuguese sweet rolls. Centerboard's interior...

We arrived in Nantucket last week and we were very pleased with our service.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Formerly a whaling captain's family manse, the 1886 Victorian structure, now a popular Nantucket MA bed and breakfast, was completely remodeled by new owners Paul and Lauri Benk in 2012. The interior has been painted and detailed; the floors refinished; furnishings, fixtures, carpeting and rugs have been replaced; and perhaps most importantly, all beds have been replaced and fitted to be luscious and inviting; featuring fine linens from Frette, Matouk and Serena & Lily. Sumptuous down duvets top all beds at this Nantucket luxury inn, along with fluffy fresh down pillows (of course down-alternatives are available if you have allergies). Each guest room at this lovely Nantucket bed and breakfast has an individual refrigerator, air conditioning, and a beautiful private bath featuring Frette towels and bathrobes and Malin-Goetz spa amenities. Wireless Internet access is available throughout the Inn and iPads are now available for guests to use during their stay ... more   less
