“No frills guesthouse in a good location”
Reviewed 5 April 2006

The location is great and they have a nice backyard to relax. The rooms are old and musty and could use some renovation. The rates however, tend to reflect this and you can often get good rates. The family lives there and there is little common space to relax. The breakfasts and coffee could use some spicing up. We tended to forgo the breakfast and went out on our own. There is only street parking which can be a problem because you are located in town. If you have just a bike there is no problem. Good for families or young couples on a budget.

I stayed at the Easton House in June. The owners are great hosts. I really enjoyed talking with Mr. Ross during breakfast - he was born on the island and can tell some really fascinating stories.

The room we stayed in the first few nights was on the second floor and had had a beautiful canopy bed (and private bath). At the end of the bed, there was a pretty quilt and a folded down comforter. The room had many antiques (I'm an antique junkie) and as silly as this may sound, I was really impressed with how comfortable the mattress was. I usually have trouble sleeping when I'm on a trip - not this time!

Breakfast was served in the living room - delicious muffins, granola and other goodies that Mrs. Ross had made. After filling up on muffins and coffee, we headed out to explore. I was really happy to find we were close to all the shops and museums. Not too far from the beach either. A few afternoons we hung out in the yard/garden at the Inn enjoying the lounge chairs.

The Rosses were helpful in choosing restaurants and deciding what to see while we were there. My husband even got a fishing lesson from Mr. Ross.

After a few days in the main house, we moved to the Easton House "cottage". It's behind the main house and has a nice view of the garden. What a great spot! Having a kitchen was great, allowing us to pack picnic lunches and chill wine. The cottage is comfortably sized - it's a large one room cottage. There is a bedroom area , sitting area, kitchen/eating area, and well equipped bathroom. There is also a small porch with sitting chairs that we made good use of in the evenings. With climbing roses covering the outside of the cottage, the fragrance from the porch was wonderful.

I would recommend this Inn highly - either the main House or the Cottage.
