A quick weekend trip with my husband and two college aged sons. We arrived off the ferry and just walked to the B&B. It is nicely located right in town and an easy walk to most shops and restaurants. Our host was friendly, not Nantucket uppity and wonderfully helpful. We stayed in the family suite which was 2 beautiful bedrooms,... More

My husband and I returned to Nantucket for a quiet getaway and were pleasantly surprised with the beautiful renovations throughout the Brass Lantern! We stayed in Brant Point and just loved the calming coastal colors throughout the room. This room is very private and spacious and we request it each visit. The bed and linens were plush and so comfortable.... More

Stayed here for four days with my sister and elderly parents. The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. Perfect location in town. Delicious continental breakfasts and homemade cookies and tea at 5:00 each day. Only downside was the noise from the rooms above. Would definitely stay here again.

Had the pleasure of a stay here - comfy, clean rooms, good facilities and a convenient location. The third floor room we had came with two beds and a sitting area with TV and refrigerator. Staff are friendly and helpful. Would recommend and use again.

The best thing about the Brass Lantern Inn is it's location. It is an easy walk from the ferry and convenient to shops and restaurants. The inn is quintessential Nantucket with a very homey feel. Our third floor room required a lot of stairs but the view of the harbor made the climb worthwhile. Breakfast was fresh baked goods with... More
