We loved our stay. The room was very nice for the money. It is also very close to everything. We were not completely satisfied with housekeeping though. They didn't fold our towels or replace tissues or water. I'm not sure if this was because we didn't give them a tip each night (we were planning on doing that the last... More

Thank you for your review - we are pleased that you enjoyed your room and breakfasts, appreciated our great location and found the Brass Lantern to provide good value. But I do apologize that we 'slipped' in providing our usual excellent housekeeping service! I assure you that the service flaws that you noted were not related in any way to... More

I would definitely recommend for your next stay in Nantucket. Clean and quaint. They provide breakfast in the morning and cookies in the afternoon. Scott, the manager was very nice and knowledgeable about the area. Location allows you to walk to most any restaurant or store in the downtown area.

Charming inn minutes from town, the ferry and Jetties Beach. My room was a queen on the first floor and it was wonderful; large, comfortable bed, nicely appointed, clean as a whistle, polite and accommodating staff (Michelle was super helpful and very sweet) and a rack for my bike. AND, the best cranberry muffin I've ever eaten in my life... More

Pricey, but seemed to be in line with other places in the area. Dog friendly. Nice breakfast. Right in the heart of town. Could walk to everything, and close to public transit. Friendly staff. Recommend!

With Nantucket being such a dog friendly island we are happy to be one of the few places on the island that allow dogs. We offer dog bowls, dog treats, dog beds and even frisbees to use while at the beach if your dog is into that kind of thing. Hope to see you, and your dog back at the... More

We stayed in the Brant Point room which had a beautiful view of the harbor. The B & B was very charming and very clean. Great location right around corner from the Whaling Museum. Scott, the manager, was super nice and very accessible. Good continental breakfast which we ate every morning in the garden. Afternoon cookies right out of the... More

Staff were very kind and value was great. Proximity to bus stop and to town could not have been better. Our room was much larger than originally expected and the afternoon cookies were a nice touch. My favorite thing was the beach chairs that we were able to borrow while staying at the lantern.

So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, I would agree that our location is perfect being only two blocks from town but without the noise of staying in town. The afternoon cookies are a big hit with guests, as well as the beach chairs and towels we have for guests to use when going to the beach. Hope to... More

Only a few blocks from ferry, excellent location. Block away from Whaling museum, restaurants, shops, strolling the town. Great service. Loved their beach chairs you can use, backpack style with zipped area for beach essentials! AC units each room. The smell of cookies throughout the inn late afternoons was great. Not to mention how great they tasted. Bathroom a lil... More
