I write a glowing review each year after I return from 'The Brass Lantern' because for a constant traveler like myself (work/pleasure) and for my partner (pleasure) it is this wonderful Inn that gives us that sense of 'well-being and happiness' that one only finds a few times in life when traveling. Luckily for us, our favorite spot, The Brass... More

Brass Lantern Inn offers a laid back vibe, friendly helpful service and a great location and a parking lot. Breakfasts are light and there is a patio where you can enjoy it. Rooms are cozy. We shall return! Love the beach chairs!

We stayed at the Brass Lantern Inn for our first trip to Nantucket. Our 14 wk. old, well-bahaved pup joined us and we had a lovely stay. The Inn is a very short walk from the Steamship Authority ferries and easy walks to downtown, some beaches, restaurants, museums, the beautiful historic library, and the WAVE transit bus stops. It couldn't... More

So happy that you chose to stay with us for your first trip (hopefully the first of many) to Nantucket, and also that you got to experience a lot of what the island has to offer. Gail's tour is very nice, it is a great way to see the island. We hope that you and your dog will come back... More

We've stayed at the Brass Lantern for quite a few years. We took a couple years off from going to Nantucket and returned once again this past Fourth of July. This inn is fantastic, the rooms/bathroom are spacious and clean, the staff are friendly and super helpful and the grounds are beautiful. Its located right in town so you can... More

this was our 4th or 5th stay at The Brass Lantern and it seems to improve every year. The location is perfect, we can bring our dog, and the breakfast, snacks and staff are wonderful. I highly recommend this lovely Inn!

My husband and I were booked to stay in a " rustic" property we stayed at 15 years ago. We arrived to find it less rustic than back then. Actually, totally unacceptable to stay at. We left immediately. I went to the information center and they told me to try the Brass Lantern, which was pet friendly, as we had... More

Thank you very much for your very informative and positive review. (Sharon's cookies are scrumtious, I have a hard time resisting them myself...) I am glad that you found us after your unsettling arrival in said 'rustic' abode - and look forward to seeing your both - and Willie - your next visit to the Brass Lantern! More

The Brass Lantern is located very close to the main square of Nantucket town. A great location. The hotel has lots of New England character and charm. The rooms are spacious, clean and have a lovely comfortable bed and a good shower. The service is excellent. The breakfast food selection is small, but good quality and nice. I highly recommend...

Updated bath, flat screen TV, desk and comfortable upholstered chairs. Great bedding. Awoke at 6am to huge sunshine pouring through the windows. Breakfast was all homemade and a... More

Everything was perfect - not kidding. Location was 2 minute walk from ferry, dog friendly, quaint little garden to relax in, beds were like heaven I slept like a log. The coffee was great, the breakfast was perfect.
