We have been staying at the Centerboard for vacations in August nearly every year for the past 15 years. We just love it at this Inn. All of the Inn keepers at the Centerboard that we have gotten to know during this time have been truly excellent, but the most recent one, Lyn Francis is just awesome! You can tell...

This little inn is literally a 3-5 minute walk from the adorable downtown area of Nantucket town. We chose it because it was not only ideally placed but was more reasonably priced than most (which is very rare on Nantucket) and had a room large enough to accommodate both me and my two sons. (Many inns were adult only).The innkeeper...

Myself, my wife and 2 year old daughter had the pleasure of staying here in the suite. We've stayed in B & B's in many places, and what we expect as far as service may be a bit more than most. The unique characteristic of this B & B is the hostess, Lyn, who assisted us with any request and...

The only thing that made this stay memorable was the Inn Keeper Lyn. The place itself was very clean but the shower was claustrophobic and the windows lacked privacy. The inn needs blinds, not shutters that don't close over the ac. The best part of our stay was Lyn and her wonderful way of accommodating all of our needs. She...

My wife, 2 sons and I had a wonderful stay at the Centerboard Guest House. The Inn is ideally located within a short walk from all the best restaurants, shopping and the wharf. Yet it is on a quiet street away from the noise. Lyn Francis the Inn Keeper is absolutely delightful. Each morning she provided a very nice continental...

The organization I work with on Nantucket reserved a room for me at the Centerboard in August 2010 for the first time and I loved staying there so much I have gone back there 3 times. The location is so convenient, the rooms are extremely comfortable and the staff couldn't be more accommodating and friendly. I love all the rooms,...

We recently stayed at the Inn during our first trip to Nantucket. Centerboard has all the charm you would exspect of a previous whaling captians home. It's just like I pictured Nantucket with beautiful flowers and a great porch to nap or kick back with a glass of wine. Above all else the Inn Keeper Lynn makes Centerboard a wonderful...

My wife and I just returned from a nice visit to Nantucket, and the Centerboard Guest House. The Inn is located near the center of town with its many shops and restaurants. Lynn, the innkeeper, was gracious upon our arrival and showed us to a small but immaculate room on the second floor. She makes a wonderful breakfast (and afternoon...

We were delighted with Nantucket and The Centerboard from the moment we arrived with our bicycles. Location...location...location! We were not far from the ferry and the main street but far enough to be in a quiet, quaint section of town. Jetties Beach was a quick bike ride away. Hospitality, cleanliness and charm were what we were looking for and found...

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
