“One of the best yet!”
Reviewed 5 August 2011

We have stayed at The Inn at Little Washington, The White Barn Inn and many others. This was the best yet. The rooms were all gorgeous. The staff was excellent and the food superb. What else can you ask for? The building was extensively renovated just several years ago and was done to perfection. We will be back! Easton is a hidden gem. With St. Michael’s down the road, what a nice get away. Great restaurants within walking distance.

Room Tip: Stayed in the Safari room. Awesome and highly recommended.

Inn at 202 is truly incredible, no expense has been spared except if you are there when the weather outside is in the upper 90's and your room remains at 78 degrees for most of the night and you are actually told by the propritor when you check in that the air conditioner isn't keeping up with the outside temperature - the only thing we wanted to do after the sweltering heat outside was to retreat to our room for a relaxing, rejuvenating, romantic evening as it was our 13th anniversary - hard to do that when you are trying to cool off in a beautiful bathtub filled with cold water - true i am on hormone therapy for breast cancer and overweight and the heat bothers me more than others but at the vodka tasting the 3 other couples were comparing their room temps and all were 77-78, other than that the inn was wonderful and if you don't go in the dead of the summer you will be fine but I do think rolling air conditioners might have helped especially since its quite costly to stay at the inn even with a LivingSocial discount - dinner at the Peacock restaurant was supurb and our waiter Robert was the perfect accompaniment to the dinner

The Inn at 202 Dover is our first bed and breakfast experience. I'm afraid that I'll be disappointed by any other bed and breakfast establishment after staying there for our 12th anniversary weekend. We stayed in the safari suite, which is bigger than most apartments in D.C. and has everything from a comfortable living area to a steam shower and massaging lighted jacuzzi tub, to a very comfortable bed and elegant furnishings. A lot of thought went into designing the suite and to us it was perfect. The house as a whole is a 10,000 sqft mansion complete with a small restaurant that serves top-notch food. You'll meet the proprietors, Ron and Shelby, who will make your stay outstanding. Our room was serviced at least twice a day and it was just a perfect getaway for my wife and myself. The town of Easton is very relaxing and beautiful as well with plenty of choices for dining and entertainment (try the Coffee Cat/Night Cat, a five-minute walk for coffee and live music, or Mason's for a drink, dinner, chocolates and/or wine). Yes, it can be a little bit expensive, but you'll get your money's worth.

I meant to write this review immediately upon return. The Inn is absolutely lovely and Shelby and Ron have put a great deal of care and planning into its design. They are charming hosts and work to make everyone feel welcome. The restaurant is
worth a trip, even if you aren't staying at the inn. My husband and I definitely want
to return and have recommended it to all our friends!

Inn at 202 Dover is a pricey but totally worth it extravagance. Shelby and Ron were the general contractors for the renovation of a beautiful but somewhat derelict mansion and have resurrected the bones of a great old house and then taken it to the next level with all the comforts of a great old residence and then added all the not so little nuances of really comfortable beds and great bathrooms and AIR CONDITIONING- i know everyone has air conditioning now a days but; working it thoughtfully into an old residence is a trick and they have played that trick. So the food is fabulous, Easton is a wonderful old,working, real town, and totally worth visiting.

Room Tip: Not sure what to say here but we loved the English Suite.

We visited the Inn at 202 as a birthday celebration for my husband. We were pleasantly surprised to find such a gem just a short commute from Northern Virginia. This is a beautiful B&B. The property is exquisitly landscaped and the rooms are spacious and luxorious. My husband has done a lot of travelling and he said it was the best room he had ever stayed in.

We loved the town of Easton. Ron and Shelby, the owners of the Inn were kind enough to share some of the town's history and social offerings. We can see why it is such a popular place. We took a walk through town each morning and came back to a wonderful breakfast. We had dinner at the Peacock Restaurant our first evening and give it a 5 star rating. I am still dreaming of the wonderful gazpacho with tomatoe and citrus sorbet.

This is definitely the place you want to stay when visiting the Eastern Shore. We will be back!

Room Tip: Our favorite is the Safari Room
