A wonderful place, the room was great, the surroundings beautiful and a great location near the harbour. The hosts were kind and serviceminded, the breakfast was great. We rented bikes for a trip around Nantucket, one of the most beautiful islands we have seen, so worth a trip!

Our first family trip to Nantucket, and our first stay at the Brass Lantern Inn. Wonderful, light-filled, cozy rooms; fantastic staff; and with amenities that rival many larger boutique hotels. If we expressed a need or a wish, Michelle, Aurore, and especially staff member Shareen (sp?), went above and beyond to fuflfill our requests (including a late-Sunday night pizza delivery),... More

We recently rented out the Brass Lantern Inn for a long weekend for family and friends attending our daughter's wedding on Nantucket. All our guests raved about the lovely rooms, the breakfasts, and especially the hospitality. Everyone there went the extra mile in so many ways--helping people with luggage, directions, recommendations, and special needs. They even made and posted a... More

My wife and I stayed at the BLI from June 3rd to the 10th and it was wonderful. We were in the 3rd floor Brant Point room and although it was a quite a climb up 2 flights of stairs (step and winding old fashioned for the second set) it was worth the workout. Windows all around offering panoramic views... More

My friend and I went to stay a night on Nantucket with my 14 month old son. I was hesitant to take a baby to a B&B but they were so accommodating and helpful. The room was very clean and larger than expected. The price was great especially for the location. Overall I recommend The Brass Lantern!

Loved the location and service of the Brass Lantern Inn. Michelle and her staff are amazing to work with. Their knowledge of the island and all of it's treasures are truly a special find for us. I've been a guest here in the past and will continue to choose this Inn for the high level of quality and service.
