Nantucket Cranberry Festival 2013

Cranberry Festival takes place each year in October to celebrate, what else, but the delicious cranberries!  Free admission!  "Come out to the Festival grounds and watch the berries being harvested, learn about the history of cranberry farming on Nantucket, participate in the family activities or just kick back and enjoy the music and the spectacular autumn scenery of one of the most unique and beautiful places on our Island.  Don’t forget to bring home a pound, or two, of Nantucket Cranberries for the Holidays!"nantucketconservation.org  

There are two cranberry bogs on Nantucket.  The Milestone Cranberry Bog and The Windswept Cranberry Bog.  You can see the process of harvesting the delicious red berry only in the Fall.  Cranberry Festival

Winter escape?

02 October 2013

When Century House Innkeepers learned a few weeks ago that one of their guests was a great admirer of Nantucketer, Manny Dias and his unique Lightship Baskets, we urged them to invite Manny to the inn’s “Gerry Berry Buffet Breakfast”. The guests were vacationing on Island with the intention of selecting another of his baskets to add to their extensive collection of his work. Little did they know what fans Century House Innkeepers are of Manny and his humanitarian goodness to so many on the Island… including Century House. In the early days of Gerry & JeanE’s innkeeping, Manny- whose artistic creativity extends beyond basket weaving which started as a hobby in the 1970′s – did all the brick laying of the inn’s patios and let the inn pay off the debt “on the installment plan” over several months/years!! We never missed a payment, and he never charged us interest!! At 89 years of age, he remains a dear friend for the last 30 years. His favorite item on the buffet, the scones!!
