We are from the Cape and wanted a little getaway to Nantucket. We stayed a Tuesday- Thursday. The Brass Lantern set up a ferry tickets and was so easy to communicate with when questions about the reservation came up. Our stay was lovely. The Inn is in a perfect location to everything. Bike friendly. Quiet and friendly staff. Comfortable beds... More

We stayed in the family suite upstairs and had everything we needed. Enjoyed breakfast in the courtyard and also late night tea out there when we saw they had lanterns there. Owner Michelle was there and greeted us with a smile. Would highly recommend.

We booked a suite at the Brass Lantern for a last minute trip to the Island for a bereavement. The staff couldn't have been nicer helping us to arrange such a last minute trip in troubled times. The Inn was clean, welcoming, and the staff was amazing. Always smiling and ready to assist. We look forward to coming back again... More

Overall we enjoyed the location of this Inn very much. The breakfast was very good. We stayed in the front room on the 1st floor which meant more street noise from cars and those out walking. Wanted to open the windows to enjoy the cool night air, but the noise prohibited that. Stay was very welcoming. They recommended the Whaling... More

Thank you for your review. As you now know, from having been on Nantucket, the historic homes in Town are built very close to the sidewalk and that, coupled with the cobbled street, can lead to street noise. Sorry you found your room to be less than perfect - there was a white noise in the room and the AC... More

We booked a 4 night trip with the assurance that a severe allergy to feathers would not be a problem. The Inn has hypo-allergenic pillows and no feathers would be in the room assured the very nice Innkeeper Michelle. Well, Michelle was not at the Inn when we arrived over the Memorial weekend and the staff did not bother to... More

It is every hotelier's nightmare that a mistake made could result in such a serious health consequence for a guest. This guest made us aware in advance of her allergies and we made certain that there were no feather pillows - the mistake was that the new king bed in the room had a featherbed and when we were notified...

The Brass Lantern Inn is exactly what we were looking for! Everything about it was perfect from the lovely proprietress Michelle, to the scrumptious breakfast in the beautiful dining area or serene back patio to the bright spacious rooms with mini fridge, tv and modern private bath. A quick walk down a quaint little street past lush flowers decorating the... More

The Brass Lantern Inn truly provided a home away from home for us. From the complimentary blueberry scones in the morning (which I defy anyone to find one better!!!) to sipping wine in the garden to all the helpful, smiling faces ready to assist and greet us at every turn -- our week seemed a month too short! We truly... More

We came back to the newly, beautifully updated Brass Lantern Inn for the Fourth of July. As in my previous review, I can't say enough wonderful things about this property, staff and owner (and her dog, Dodger). We stayed in the Campenella room. The recent updates were great, new bed, lush towels, clean and comfortable bathroom and really nice, beach... More

Thank you your excellent and descriptive review - and I am so glad that you approve of our recent renovations! One of the very real pleasures of inn-keeping is meeting people and, for frequent and regular guests as you are, watching as their lives evolve - first marriage, then babies and now two fine young boys! We, and that includes... More

We stayed at the Brass Lantern for three nights and found the accommodations pleasant but not as welcoming as in other B & B’s we have stayed. While the room and bathroom was small, I knew that when I booked it. The price was high for a tiny room but it made it affordable to us because it seems that... More

I am sorry that this guest did not come away with the the kind of positive experience we hope to impart. Apologies that our welcome seemed rushed - since most of our guests come by ferry, we often have guests 'stacked up' in the Foyer, waiting to be welcomed and checked in - which can sometimes be frenetic! We always... More

My husband and I stayed June 24-26 in the Harmony room. The bed was comfortable, but was only four inches from the wall making it necessary to access that side of the bed from the foot or climbing over the person on the other side of the bed. There was an old rickety wooden rocking chair and another very short... More
