With a laid-back atmosphere, small-town charm, and some of the best beaches in the country, it’s no wonder why Nantucket is constantly voted as one of the most popular destinations on the East Coast.
One of the best ways to truly get into the spirit of Nantucket is to stay at a traditional accommodation. And what better way to do so than at a classic Nantucket bed and breakfast?
The Brass Lantern Inn is located right in the Old Historic District and has been a mainstay throughout Nantucket’s history — the Inn has been happily welcoming guests since the early 1900s!
The Brass Lantern Inn is ideal for all types of travelers, including solo adventurers, couples, and families. Guests can choose from the 17 beautifully-decorated rooms that are spread between the Main Inn and the Garden Wing.
The Main Inn features comfortable and cozy rooms like Zenas Coffin, where you can curl up by the window seat with a good book; relax and pamper yourself in the chic Elizabeth Starbuck room; or watch the ferries circle around Nantucket Harbor from the Brant Point room. The Brass Lantern Inn is the perfect place to feel closer to Nantucket. Guests can see small touches of Nantucket all around the Inn, from the hand-carved oval nameplates on each of the doors (created by local artist Michael Vienneau) to the names of the guest rooms at the Main Inn, which were named after whaling ships that sailed from Nantucket in the 1800s. Serious historians can go back in time and find out more about the history of the Brass Lantern by picking up a complimentary copy of 11 North Water Street, A House History at the Inn.
Those who are traveling in larger parties can opt for one of the eight rooms in the Garden Wing. The Wing, which was recently renovated in 2015, offers suites that are full of contemporary Nantucket decor. From the calming colors to the crisp accents of white wood, elegant wallpaper, and lovely antiques, you’ll feel the spirit of Nantucket from the moment you walk inside.
The real star of the Brass Lantern Inn is the Wisteria room. With features like high ceilings, a built-in bookcase, a large sparkling white bath, and a king-sized bed, this 342 square foot room will feel like your own personal haven!
Thanks to its long history of hospitality, the Brass Lantern Inn knows how to make their guests feel welcome. Afternoon tea is available every day and features delicious home baked cookies that can be enjoyed on the patio, garden, or in your room.
Bringing along your four-legged friend to Nantucket? The Brass Lantern Inn is the perfect stop. The Inn has six dog-friendly rooms, as well as a gated dog-run complete with a fire hydrant! Besides giving a yummy treat and water bowl, the Inn goes above and beyond by providing your pooch with a personal-sized dog bed, doggy beach towel, and a list of dog-friendly restaurants.
Local legend says that if you throw two pennies overboard as you sail past Brant Point Lighthouse, your return to the island will be guaranteed. But with a fantastic stay at a place like the Brass Lantern Inn, do you really need an excuse to return to Nantucket
