Pet Friendly Nantucket Hotel
Pet Friendly Nantucket Hotel

Nantucket is a very pet-friendly Island, and the Brass Lantern is a very pet-friendly Inn, one of the few inns that welcome your four-legged friend.  Over the years, we have had countless well-behaved pet guests from mini Chihuahuas to Bernese mountain dogs – and most sizes in between.

Upon arrival, the Brass Lantern will welcome your pet with:

  • A yummy treat
  • A cozy ‘right-sized’ dog bed, with or without crate
  • Food and water bowls
  • And a beach towel.

We will also provide you with a list of dog friendly restaurants, places to go with your dog and names and numbers for pet supply stores and services.

Nantucket Pet-Centered Activities

Walking your dog in Town or on the many dog walks will lead to friendly greetings and dog-centered conversations.  There are many locations for both on- and off-leash walking with your dog on Nantucket, in Town and on conservation land and beaches (see map).  Dogs are allowed on beaches that are not life-guarded. View the top Nantucket dog walking trails.
