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.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Brass Lantern. It's a lovely historic inn, nicely furnished, very comfortable, and just a short walk from the ferry terminal, town center, and whaling museum. The perfect place from which to explore the town. Scott, the manager, could not have been more helpful. Sharon, who prepared the delicious breakfast (continental but generous, with... More

I am delighted to sing the praises of the Brass Lantern Inn in Nantucket. From the moment I stepped out of a howling nor'easter into the inviting and spacious entry hall I felt instantly transported back in time to a simpler, more gracious era. I was greeted promptly and warmly by 10-year veteran staff member, Sharon, who was very thorough,... More

I want to thank the entire staff for their very kind service and hospitality.

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.

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

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!
