My boyfriend surprised me for my birthday with a quick trip to Nantucket and a stay at the Brass Lantern Inn. As I have a dog and he wanted to surprise me, he had to find a place we could stay with the hound - we lucked out at the Brass Lantern!

We arrived late in the evening for check in and were greated by a friendly staffer who checked us in to our cozy room and brought nice ceramic bowls and a clean, fluffy bed for the dog - what service! We left him and headed out on a quick walk to Federal Street and the Boarding House for dinner.

Our room had a very comfortable 4 post bed and the softest sheets ever. The room was spotless. Our bath was small but more than adequate with a stall shower, good water pressure and thick towels. In the morning, we had coffee in our room, then a light breakfast of yogurt, fruit and muffins in the dining room. Outside there is a small patio seating area where we enjoyed the autumn sun in the afternoon.

The Inn is located within walking distance to town, great restaurants and the beach.

As the Inn was slower this time of year and we had a late reservation on the ferry back, they let us keep all of our things in the room while we shopped, had lunch and eventually headed back to the room to check out.

The staff was friendly, unobtrusive and very easy going. The atmosphere was casual and relaxed. A really nice place to stay even if you don't have a dog !

The Inn was very well kept. The "continental" breakfast was unimpressive and an experience we have never had at a B&B but the most disappointing was that we never met the owners and the person in charge was not visible. Except for the decor we could have been in a Hampton Inn. Don't think we'll be back.

Excellent location in town but the rest of it was average .The thing I was most disappointed in was the lack of personal service. The owner walked through the dining room several times when we were there and didn't even say hello or acknowledge our presence .This was our first experience wih a B and B and won'tbe our last but hopefully next time we' ll pick a place with a owner with a personal touch

Located a short walk from piers, restaurants, and the Whaling Museum. Room names, not #'s! Cozy bathrobes! Tea/Coffee 24/7. Afternoon cookies! Afternoon tea available in individual tea pots (loose tea to brew) that you can take to your room. They offer a discounted rate on the Hy-Line Ferry if you pay for the ferry through their office. Good continental breakfast. A bit pricey, but a nice place to stay.
