This was our second time at the Centerboard for my wife's birthday. I highly recommend this place to friends and family. Great location, wonderful rooms and a superb breakfast! Easy walking distance from the ferry and near great resturants.

My wife and I stayed at the Centerboard Inn on Columbus Day weekend to celebrate our 8 year anniversary. After finding the Centerboard on line, looking at the pictures and reading the reviews, I decided to book a room and to my surprise, there was one left, room #7. The description and pictures were perfect. The room is at garden...

First of all I would like to rebut the Oct 6 RejenaB review. "The lady doth protests too much, methinks." I have visited this inn 4 times since Lyn,the innkeeper, started and have only wonderful things to say about her and her service. So I feel compelled to write a rebuttal Clearly this person has not visited many or any...

We've been to Nantucket a handful of times in the past few years, and usually stay at a larger hotel. Friends recommended the Centerboard Inn, and we're so glad we made the switch to a smaller B&B. We stayed in a room off the garden level, which only had two or three small windows, but the room still got great...

This was our first visit to Nantucket and we stayed at another B&B in Cape Cod prior to going to the island - we were extremely surprised with the layout of the B&B. Upon being greeted, we were asked to sign for our expenses. The kitchen was pointed out and the Kuerig coffee machine. There were no cookies, no goodies,...

It is disappointing to receive this poor review, amongst so many glowing ones especially when as the innkeeper I pride myself on giving exemplary customer service. On arrival my guests (three friends from different areas of the country) informed me that they wouldn’t be staying another night because they had miscalculated their travel time and one of their party had...

I researched many inns before our trip. My husband and I were thrilled with Centerboard Inn , the location, the accomodations, and the newly appointed rooms. Lyn made our stay relaxing with her warm personality and ease in entertaining. Her breakfast was delicious. I do not think you would be disappointed in choosing Centerboard!

We have been home a week after staying 4 nights at the Centerboard. I can't say enough about our experience. Lyn the innkeeper baked from scratch every day. For breakfast, she served homemade scones or coffee cake or quiche as well as beautifully prepared fruit salad most days. The coffee was hot and strong and we sat each morning filling...

This is a lovely, lovely place. We have stayed on Nantucket at various inns for 15 years and discovered the Centerboard this summer. Lyn is a wonderful hostess and our room was fresh and beautifully appointed. The location could not be more convenient for bike rides, walks to restaurants or Jetties Beach.

My husband and I stayed at the Centerboard for 4 nights last week and were absolutely thrilled with just about everything. The innkeeper, Lyn, could not have been more accommodating and serves up a great breakfast. Her breakfasts saved us a bundle because there was no way we could eat lunch afterward. She was very helpful, and very kindly would...

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
