Just what you would want in a Nantucket B&B. My room was freshly painted and updated. Bed was comfy and linens were first rate. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The afternoon cookies were a nice touch. The continental breakfast provided all you needed to get the day going and the muffins were indeed fresh and warm. Bread for toast... More

After doing the research (on Trip Advisor), we chose the Brass Lantern Inn. We stayed in the Brant Point room which is beautifully decorated with a very comfy the king size bed. The Inn is convenient to everything. The breakfast choices were plentiful and delicious. Be sure not to miss the warm cookies at 5PM. Michele and her staff were... More

My daughter and I visited several weeks ago and were so pleased with our beautifully appointed room and the convenience of being so close to town. Breakfast was something to look forward to, but the afternoon chocolate chip cookies topped it all!

The delightful Brass Lantern Inn is an easy short walk from the ferry dock and steps away from all the shops, restaurants, and sights of Nantucket Town. We stayed in the beautiful (and evidently recently renovated) Brant Point room on the third floor with a view of the harbor. The room was so nice - comfy chairs to sit in,... More

History, charm, elegance and the warmest, most welcoming staff we've ever encountered. Brass Lantern has all of this, and then some. We visited Nantucket during the first week of May, and were lucky enough to find this place because we had our dog with us. Our room was comfortable and elegantly decorated, and given how close we were to the... More

What a lovely recommendation you have written for the Brass Lantern! You truly captured the essence of the experience that we strive to offer each of our guests. The shoulder seasons are my favorite times at the Brass Lantern, when the pace is a little slower and we can enjoy visiting with and learning about our guests - and help... More

We stayed here for 2 nights last week and loved it. The accommodation is pretty and very comfortable and the breakfast is excellent. We had a good deal as we were in 'shoulder season'. It is a minute's walk from the middle of the town, up a v quiet street. highly recommended.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Brass Lantern Inn! My boyfriend and I decided we wanted to include our dog on our next beach vacation, so our first concern was finding a place to stay that could accommodate us. Luckily, the Brass Lantern does not just allow pets to stay, but actually provides them with a bed, a blanket... More

From the minute we arrived we felt at home. What a beautiful inn with wonderful staff. Our every need was met. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We even were welcomed back another night when ferry service was suspended. No need to look any further. This is the INN for you.
