Brass Lantern Inn, Nantucket
Enjoy a visit to beautiful Nantucket. This tiny spot on the map is a breathtaking one and if you haven’t walked along its picturesque shores, you’re missing out.
The Brass Lantern Inn knows your vacation is going to be a lot more memorable if you have Spot along with you, versus leaving him at home, where you’re constantly worried about him (we all love our dog sitters, but it doesn’t stop us from worrying!).
In addition to the property being pet-friendly, the entire town of Nantucket is as well. There are plenty of places for you to walk your dog both on and off the leash, both in town and on beaches and conservation land. (Just remember to bring along some tick prevention!)
