Great place for our anniversary

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 6, 2008

I planned a surprise anniversary trip (and our vacation) to Nantucket this summer. It was towards the end of June so the island wasn't as packed. My wife and I had the best time though. We walked to the beach and to downtown, rode bikes to Sconset, and visited some of the historic buildings. Our favorite spot is the beach just up the road to the right off Cliff Road. We of course loved the sandwiches at Something Natural, but who doesn't?

Everyone at the hotel is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and renovated. We stayed in The Black Orchid Room which was like new. The small private porch was convenient every morning for breakfast. We also loved the daily baked cookies. We couldn't wait to get back from the beach, just in time to smell them as we walked in. My wife was very happy. We're planning to come back next summer.

Unique Quality: nice outside patio, great breakfast, very Nantucket-like, chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon, close to the beach and town, crisp decor.

A Nice Vacation

We loved this inn, walking distance to everything. Clean, quiet, comfortable, homey. The cookies were delicious served every afternoon. From the moment we arrived we were happy we chose this inn. Our Room Red Dahlia had a wonderful king bed with pillow-top. Of couse we didn't want to leave. As first timers we didn't know what to expect but the innkeeper gave us helpful information. We loved the staff, always helpful and friendly.

Unique Quality: great history, large rooms, large private baths, delicious cookies, homey atmosphere, friendly staff.

We finally made it to this faraway island...perfect weather during our October getaway, a six day bliss. We stayed here (Century House), a luxury bed and breakfast on Cliff Road, a beautiful historic building from the 1800's, cobblestone streets surrounded with great views. What a pleasant, breathtaking fall destination!!! The rooms are decorated with paintings of Nantucket, antique furniture and plenty of books. We even met some of the artists painting there. The location is great for walking or simply sitting on the porch to relax. On foggy days we loved the homemade baked chocolate chip cookies. Fantastic staff and an awesome breakfast! We highly recommended.

Unique Quality: Loved the updated new rooms. The decor remains Nantucket-like historic, with great Victorian appeal and modern amenities. This is the true Nantucket experience.

Directions: near Brant Point Lighthouse, close to downtown Nantucket, Steps and Children Beach

Best Destination for art lovers, quiet gettaway

For years Nantucket has been a favorite painting destination. Now, for a second year, staying at the Century House has enhanced this experience with the warmth of its host and staff, the scrumptious breakfast and painters pasta dinners and the ambiance of its beautiful rooms. It was a delight on a rainy day to stay indoors and paint the lovely salon.

Unique Quality: great healthy berry buffet breakfast, quiet inn, historic location, close to downtown, walk to beaches, close to the bikepath, breezy, wrap-around veranda, homemade cookies, art program, artists, art, painting.

Directions: Nantucket Whaling Museum, Harbor House, Point Breeze, Stepps Beach, Madaket, American Seasons Restaurant, Oldest House on Nantucket
