“It is a light house. That's really about it....”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

As far as unmanned lighthouses go, it was just fine. However, I am pretty sure that I would not make a special trip to Nantucket (or even the beach it's on) to see it. Maybe a good backdrop for a picture of kids as its kind of small?

“Smaller than your average”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

A beautiful little public access light house over looking Nantucket Harbor. Very we'll done and post card worthy. We saw it by boat, which I highly recommend, and it's free ( from the land, that is)

“Great steaks”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Lovely covered porch overlooking harbour. Food was great and friendly staff. Much more family-oriented than Toppers, if that is your thing. My filet mignon with blue cheese sauce was superb. Recommend!

“Great Views!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Brant point light is easy to get to and is located right outside of town. There is no parking right by the light so you will need to park down the street a little ways and walk. The beach its located on is great and provides excellent views of the harbor. Its a must see while on island!

“Nice spot to take pictures”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Very close to town center, just a short walk. We stopped by at sunset and took a few pictures. Came out really nice.
