Snuggled among the former whaling captains’ mansions on a quiet residential street minutes from Nantucket’s restaurants, shops, and beaches, Century House is the city’s oldest inn. Built in 1833 and lovingly renovated to retain its historic charm and offer all modern amenities, Century House is a tranquil oasis, surrounded by a wrap-around veranda, secluded patio, and lush gardens.
Its airy, spacious, and uniquely decorated rooms have private bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs, and some have private entrances, porches, fridges, skylights, and four-poster beds. Homemade buffet style breakfast and afternoon tea, coffee, and snacks are served in the cozy country-style dining room, in the garden, or on the veranda. Guests can also enjoy a lounge and a library with some choice books and DVDs.
