Wonderful Inn on the Island. Great location, clean, accommodating and friendly! I stayed in Mary Mitchell which was perfect for 1 person and a dog. It has a private bathroom which is small but very nice. Their room description was spot on! I will definitely return! I love

We booked our trip at the last minute and we're able to secure the last available room at the Brass Lantern Inn... how fortunate for us! I'm always a little hesitant that the pictures on the website don't accurately portray what the property actually looks like. Believe me...

On balance, the Brass Lantern was just OK. Overall, it just met my expectations for the price paid. GOOD: It’s very well-located, convenient to downtown and the harbor. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was adequate; we found good things to eat each day. Everything seemed

Thank you for your review. Please know, all our room descriptions are quite detailed on our website and if there is a slanted ceiling - it is noted. Perhaps selecting a different room would have suited you better as we have very, very high ceilings in many of our rooms especially in the main inn and on the first floor. The architecture of a historic building many find lends to its appeal and pitched roofs are part of the home. We do try to be as accommodating as we can when guests arrive and check-out - simply by asking for a later checkout is all that is needed as the housekeeper may have just been surprised that you were in your room after check-out. Nantucket is one of the few places left in the world that there is an element of safeness. Many of our visitors enjoy that aspect of the island and the freedom it allows. We do hope you will take the time and visit us once again. We would be happy to help you select a room more in line with your needs. Warm regards, Lisa & the Brass Lantern Staff

Extremely clean and stylish B & B. We have been guests during the summer when our children were young and then again, years later over Thanksgiving. Both stays were perfect. The family suite is very comfortable for a group or family that wants space and privacy. The Inn is
