We felt welcome from the moment we arrived. The inn is lovely, clean and well-maintained. Comfortable and cozy. Our innkeeper, Barbara is a knowledgeable and gracious hostess. She is a foodie and understands the island culture well. She went out of her way to accommodate a special food request and was a kind and charming host. The hotel is perfectly...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 November 2016

We recently had the opportunity to visit Nantucket for a few days last week to celebrate a wedding. Having researched the area we decided not to stay where the other guests were located, at a hotel type lodging around the corner, and opting instead for the warmth of a b and b. Our expectations were high, having been frequently impressed...

My husband and I decided on a last minute weekend on Nantucket for our wedding anniversary. After pouring over some reviews on TripAdvisor I decided on the Centerboard Inn. I left a message for the innkeeper and Barbara returned my call promptly. We talked about the rooms that were available and decided on room 5. It was a perfect room...

Barb at the Inn was great, she contacted us in advance of the trip to see when we planned on arriving so the room was ready. Upon arrival she greeted us with a warm smile. She proceeded to show us around the Inn and then walked us to the room for a tour and explanation of the amenities. In the...

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
