Centerboard Guest House Bed and Breakfast,
a truly original island boutique inn, is located
on scenic, historic Nantucket Island, 26 miles
off Hyannis on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
Chief among Nantucket’s many attractions are
more than 50 miles of natural, undeveloped
beaches, breath-taking sunsets, cobblestone
streets, top-shelf boutiques, galleries galore,
and ancient windmills and lighthouses. For
natural beauty, healthy air, world-class
restaurants, shopping, and historic sites,
Nantucket is the crown jewel in the entire New
England region.
The Centerboard B&B, a magnificently
restored 1886 former whaling captain’s home,
is ideally located for your stay in Nantucket
Town. Just a few blocks removed from the
bustling town center, we are in the heart of
Nantucket’s Historic District at the foot of
legendary Cliff Road, just a short stroll or bike
ride away from ferries, shops, galleries, raw
bars, museums, shuttle buses, restaurants
and several beaches. The house was
completely remodeled recently to introduce
some pleasing contemporary touches while
still reflecting the lofty, airy and antique
architectural charm of the Late Victorian era.
We have many antiques tastefully appointing
each of our seven bedrooms and our public
rooms. All guest rooms and baths have been
updated to a high degree of refinement and
In recent years the Centerboard B & B has
been several times voted the Best Bed &
Breakfast on Nantucket by the readers of the
Nantucket Island’s leading newspaper, the
Inquirer and Mirror.

It is our sincerest hope that, once you have
experienced our attentive, anticipatory
service, and soaked up the casually elegant
ambience of the Centerboard, you will make
us your lodging of choice for all future
Nantucket visits. Come stay for a smile!
