Century House

A timeless summer treasure

The tranquil serenity that comes with a season on Nantucket is on full display at 10 Cliff Road. Just a short walk from both boutiques and beaches, the Century House's veranda views of Town's bucolic milieu have charmed visitors to the island since 1833. Once a whaling captain's private residence and then a popular B&B, this recent Blue Flag acquisition will reopen summer 2020 with an even more alluring and inviting story to tell.

Where patio naps and cozy cocktails remain time-honored rituals.

Aptly named after nearly two centuries of inviting residential living, the Century House remains the oldest continuously operating guesthouse on Nantucket. Walk to dinner at American Seasons, bike home from Jetties, Children's, or Steps Beach to find white porches dripping with hanging baskets and flowering vines. Discerning guests have called Cliff Road at Centre Street home for generations, making this supremely located, sought-after institution an exciting addition to Blue Flag's collection of rare finds.

Paving the way for an exciting next step.

By pairing this desirable hilltop parcel with conveniences sure to please sea captains of all stripes, Blue Flag's vision for the Century House marries imaginative design with gentle guest upgrades from booking through checkout. Our holistic approach to property enhancement will breathe new life into this island favorite, while preserving its status as a well-known island siren.
