I want to thank the entire staff for their very kind service and hospitality. My family and I took three rooms recently and gave the accommodation, service, food, ambiance an overall rating of 5 out of 5. Scott the general manager and Sharon for the morning breakfast service were our favorites. This is a 17 room B&B that has everything... More

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Brass Lantern Inn and would definitely go back. The Inn is beautifully maintained, homey, very comfortable and the breakfast and afternoon tea and cookies delicious. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. It is perfectly located - an easy walk to shopping, great restaurants and the ferry.

Thank you for your excellent review. You have described what the Brass Lantern offers to all our guests on their Nantucket holiday - a warn welcome, a comfortable, clean and well appointed guestroom and common areas, food and refreshments to delight, and a 'home' from which guests can experience all of Nantucket's charms - even in November! We look forward... More

Michelle Langlois and the staff at the Brass Lantern could not have done more to give us an enjoyable experience at their inn. Originally intending to book for just one night, we were caught in a major storm that shut down the ferries for our return ride home. Sharon, in the office, was vigilant about keeping us updated on the... More

My husband & I take a few days off from our jobs and our sheep farm to visit the Cape each year. We decided on a Nantucket visit this year and were so pleased to find the Brass Lantern Inn as a dog friendly lodging. Our Border Collie & Shetland Sheepdog felt at home as much as we did.

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Brass Lantern Inn. Went in the "shoulder" season so the prices were more affordable. My husband and I stayed four evenings. Everything was clean at all times. Breakfast was scrumptious - varied muffins, scones, yogurt, fruit, granola, and juices! Staff were most courteous. Definitely a do-it-again place!

Our party of ten ranged in age from my 78 year old parents to my early twenties niece. We had 5 rooms, each different and only one had a smaller than average bathroom. All were super clean and had nice toiletries in the bathrooms. My parents, uncle and sister's family stayed in the Garden Wing. Their rooms seemed larger than... More

We just stayed this past weekend and loved it here. Very clean rooms, great snacks and breakfast items. ((Especially liked the scones )). Literally a few yards from the whaling museum and the center of it all. Only gripe (and it is small) but the tv was places in the corner to the back and to the right of the... More

Thank you for your review - we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay - we love our scones too! Most guests who stay in your room watch TV from the couch - but, you are right, not a great view from the bed. We are planning to mount a larger TV on the wall during our winter renovation to... More

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with a long weekend stay at the Brass Lantern. It could not have been more perfect! The Inn is quintessential Nantucket; quaint, casual, historic, and comfortable. Our room (Wisteria) was clean and crisp, the Staff pleasant and accommodating, and the location very convenient to Main Street and the ferry. The smell... More

Great location just up the street from whaling museum, easy walking to all downtown areas. Lovely comfortable rooms and nice common areas including sitting area outside. Very nice, tastes breakfast and coffee/ tea available all day with fresh baked cookies every afternoon. Have tried a few other B&Bs on Nantucket but always come back to The Brass Lantern.
