Century House on Nantucket, which began life as a lodging house in 1833 and is reportedly the oldest continually operating in on the island, won a 2012 Editors' Choice Award in Yankee Magazine's Travel Guide to New England. The inn, a short walk from downtown, is a veritable showcase for plein-air artists, who regularly stay at the inn, trading lodging for their art work. Hundreds of painting adorn the Century House walls, each with a story that innkeepers Gerry Connick and Jean Ellen Heron will gladly tell you about.

Rates at the inn start at $175 per night depending on the date, and they include a breakfast Connick creates daily, heavy on healthy fruits, that is dubbed "Gerry's Berry Buffet Breakfast." For information on the inn, visit www.centuryhouse.com, or call 508-228-0530.
