Quiet ambience.

The chicken entree was superb. My husband's steak with sauce and side order of fingerling potatoes was delicious. We had a chocolate dessert that was very good.

The two things I always look forward to when riding the ferry from Hyannis to Nantucket are sighting the Town Clock(Unitarian Church), and rounding Brant Point Light. The second oldest light to be built in the young nation, it is an easy walk from main street( parking can be difficult)

We were lucky in that the sun was shining, skies clear and this is a pretty walk. It is well kept and definitely worth a look.

My husband and I walked here from our hotel which took about ten minutes. We savored the sea air and loads of shells, relaxed on the rocks and enjoyed ourselves. Great little escape in off season.

Walking distance to town. Beautiful. And tons of shells if you're into shelling! The lighthouse isn't open but it's a great place for photo ops.

This site welcomes the return of locals and travelers alike. It is a great place to watch all the boats traveling in and out of the harbor and if you are lucky you might just catch a wedding taking place!

Great location and easy to reach from downtown. The lighthouse is well maintained and allows you great views of the boat traffic in and out of the harbor. Certainly worth the visit.

We enjoyed our walk from town down to the Brant point lighthouse. The caretakers had just finished put a huge red bow on the lighthouse for the Christmas holidays. Very charming little lighthouse. We wished we could have gone inside.
