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...

Stayed two nights in September. Lyn, the resident innkeeper is a gem. Our room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The public areas, including a porch and courtyard are very nice. The breakfasts are advertised as continental, but they're really a step up from that, with several warm entrees. All in all, top notch.

We were here with two other couples, enjoying an early September weekend on our bikes and beaches. Lyn, the innkeeper, is fantastic!! Stephanie the housekeeper keeps the rooms perfect. The rooms are a bit small but very adequate and very clean and updated. Great porch to sit out and fireplace below. Location is prime. Walk, bike or taxi, your call...

This B & B is in an charming older house, near the center of town. We stayed in the Master Suite on the first floor, which has a large sitting room, and a separate bedroom and bath. The recent renovation has, unfortunately, lessened the inn's adherance to the traditional New England style. Gone are the leather armchairs in front of...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the Centerboard Inn. Indeed, we recently renovated the entire inn with an eye towards coastal elegance and comfort, with no increase in rates. Our new website is under construction with an expected launch in late-September, but our website does provide full details of the renovation project as well as...

This place was awesome. Most comfortable mattress. Awesome shower pressure. Extremely clean. Close enough to town but in a more quiet locale. Service was outstanding. Breakfasts were varied and delicious. The innkeeper was amazing, all the comments of praise on here are well deserved. There is no question or request that she wont answer or fulfill. I'm already planning when...

My husband and I planned a last minute trip to Nantucket and were extremely lucky to get a room at Centerboard Inn.. as all reviews have stated, Lyn was a fantastic hostess. The Inn was tastefully renovated this year and felt more like a boutique hotel than a New England Inn (I personally think it can compete in aesthetic to...

My wife and I enjoyed our stay with Lyn at the Centerboard Inn. We would definitely go back (although we're expecting our first child in a few months so room 4 would be too small with a child) and will recommend it to friends. The Inn is nicely located just away from main st and the harbor (very walkable). Lyn...

We visited Nantucket in August with our two teen daughters. We stayed in the master suite and could not have asked for a more perfect room! The rooms were immaculate...lots of extras...two televisions, luxury bath products. The best asset of the Inn is Lyn the innkeeper! The owners made a super decision to hire her and I hope they will...

We (wife, daughters 6&8, and I) visited Nantucket for a week in August. I have been there in the past, but without kids. It isn't easy to find accommodations to include younger children.

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
