The Brass Lantern is open for the 2021 season – we are pleased that so many guests visited since last year when post-covid travel was possible, and we are looking forward to welcoming even more guests this year!
This year, with the increasing availability of vaccines, travel has become much easier and guests who are fully vaccinated may travel to Massachusetts and Nantucket without restrictions. If you have not yet been vaccinated, please visit the State covid information page for information about testing requirements. If you have questions or concerns regarding your travel, please call the Inn at 508-228-4064.
At the Brass Lantern, we have evolved the way we operate in the age of covid. To protect our guests and our staff, there have been changes in how we operate – touch-free check-in, communication via text message (fresh towels? – done!), and a new way of offering breakfast – no buffets for now – but made to order breakfast trays!. Our room decor has been simplified by removing decorative pillows, bolsters and magazines – and required face masks has become a fashion item. Our housekeeping methods – while always thorough and praised by guests – follows the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) covid-specific cleaning protocols for sanitizing and disinfecting. We are proud to join the the Safe Stay initiative which is designed to standardize the hotel industry’s cleaning and safety protocols to ensure both hotel guests and employees are confident to work and stay.
On Nantucket, restaurants (and shops) are open with some limits on the number of shoppers or diners at one time. In order to increase the amount of outdoor dining space, the Town has closed several streets to create European-style dining plazas for more delightful outside dining. Restaurants are now able to serve inside with social distancing and you can also order your lunch or dinner for take-out to dine back at the Brass Lantern on the Patio or in the Dining Room. We will continue to update changes as they evolve. The Whaling Museum is open and our cultural organizations have evolved to welcome Nantucket visitors.
Nantucket is still here and a Nantucket holiday this year will offer lots of time exploring the miles of beaches, bike paths and the miles and miles of walking trails in our conservation lands. Did you know that 50% of Nantucket Island is conservation land?
See you on Island – and stay well!
