What a wonderful week-end! We went directly to the inn from the ferry to drop off our things. However - as promised- our room just happened to be ready so we were allowed to go directly to our room before we left for bike riding. Michelle and Emily were as helpful as could be! Suggestions for dinner, bike destinations, etc. were so helpful! Breakfast was delicious and healthy! Afternoon tea/coffee and cookies was so appreciated after a day of biking. Our room was soooo comfy. We stayed in the Brant Point Room and loved the view. Bed linens, towels, robes were luxury quality!! ( I loved the robes so much, I even purchased one! Emily and Michelle went out of their way to make sure I was able to take my robe home when I checked out.) I felt so pampered.....will definitely choose this inn for my next trip to Nantucket.

Room Tip: 3rd floor very private, sunny and quiet, but stairway is steep

Our stay at the Brass Lantern Inn on Nantucket was fabulous! We stayed for two nights while on island celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We were greeted with a warm smile and made to feel comfortable. We stayed in the Brant Point room which had an amazing view of the harbor and of the Brant Point lighthouse. The room was spacious, bright and clean. The bed was very comfortable...we loved the luxury sheets which were soft and cozy. The breakfast room was cheery and with a plentiful supply of tasty bake goods. The staff and the innkeeper were pleasant and engaging. The off street parking was an added bonus, Attention to detail was amazing! We will be back!!

Room Tip: We would suggest staying in the Brant Point room. Great view!

We got engaged whilst holidaying in Nantucket and decided to come back and get married there. My husband and I and all our wedding guests stayed at the Brass Lantern Inn before, during and after the wedding and I can't thank them enough for the wondeful service we received.

We have stayed at the Brass Lantern Inn twice previously and have always found them to be very helpful and accomodating and particulary like the relaxed atomosphere and location so close to Town.

The staff have always been so friendly and can't do enough for you, in fact the manager recommended a Florist for the wedding which we ended up using and they were fantastic. Wonderful Place, Great Staff and Lovely hotel!

Room Tip: All rooms are good, particularly in the first floor of the hotel

Despite an unfortunate incident with the sprinkler system while reading in the garden, this place was really great. My friend and I stayed in the Forsynthia room, which has 2 beds and is right by the kitchen. We could smell the homemade cookies when they were baked in the afternoon!

The Inn is lovely and within walking distance of everything in town as well as the wharf where the ferry docks. The rooms are homey and comfortable. The breakfast was delish and the cookies and tea in the afternoon were a welcome surprise.

The owner and employees were very helpful in giving advice on things to do and places to eat.

I will definitely return to the Brass Lantern with my husband, toddler, and dog when I make my next trip to Nantucket. It's hard to find such nice places that are dog friendly!
