“Everyone is touched in some way being by the sea… .
Nantucket is “just like a lover–so familiar and comforting…so wild and unpredictable”
We are corporate “drop outs” who became Innkeepers in 1984. We love every moment of our freedom here, and we know that you will love it too. Century House is located in the residential section of the Old Historic District on prestigious Cliff Road. As our guest, you will be close to all the wonderful activities available to island visitors, without having to stay right in the middle of the hustle and bustle.
While close enough to access shopping, restaurants and beaches easily, our guests have the luxury of relaxing on the Inn’s porch and patios enjoying the Island’s serenity when they want to escape the crowds.
JeanE and Gerry also married on Nantucket Island, inviting guests from all over the world to celebrate with them at Century House. Together with our long-term team members and staff of over 14 years, we welcome you to Nantucket Island!
If you are a fan of the NBC television show “Wings,” TV Show you may find Century House sign or facade familiar. Executive producers David Lee, Peter Casey and David Angell chose Century House as their B&B when first visiting the island in 1989 to scout locations. In the following years, scenes of the inn have often been featured on the show, and we were invited to watch a taping (and to be extras!) of a September, 1994 episode. “It was exciting not only to be on the set but to experience the incredible camaraderie among the entire ‘Wings’ team…” JeanE, the innkeeperette Century House is the oldest continuously operating guesthouse on Nantucket Island to date.
