Enjoy warm Nantucket hospitality in a classic setting – come to the Brass Lantern! Located in the heart of Nantucket’s Cultural and Old Historic District, the Brass Lantern is a beautifully restored seventeen room bed and breakfast inn where you will enjoy a relaxing and memorable holiday.

Frequently named ‘Best on Nantucket’, the Brass Lantern will be your perfect ‘home’ on Nantucket. Our Main Inn, built after Nantucket’s Great Fire in 1846, is in the Greek Revival style and offers high ceilings, tall windows, and a sweeping front staircase. All of the original architectural details have been retained and enhanced in the 18 years since Michelle Langlois purchased the Inn. The Main Inn includes the Foyer, Sitting Room, Dining Room, Reception, Powder Room and Kitchen and seven guest rooms with en suite bath and one two bedroom suite, which are all named for whaling ships that had left Nantucket at the time that the Inn was built.

The Garden Wing, added in the mid-1980s, offers eight spacious guest rooms, all en suite. The second floor rooms all have vaulted ceilings with high windows and sky and roof-top views.

The garden and patio are and adjacent to the Garden Wing and provide a restful spot for an al fresco breakfast or takeaway lunch, or to enjoy a late afternoon glass of wine.
