Close to everything. Very laid back and cozy. Nice breakfasts. Owners are very interesting, concerned and nice. They recommended excellent restaurants and places to visit. We rented bikes and toured the entire island riding. It was an awesome stay.

I knew as soon as we approached the front door that this was a comfortable place. My family and I have been vacationing in Nantuckett for 20+ years, and this was the first time we stayed at the Century House. I wish we had found it earlier. The staff, led by preeminent 'Innkeeperette' Jeane, absolutely makes you feel at home.... 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.
