“Best B&B”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

We've stayed here over the past two summers and always enjoy our stay. It's in a great location, within walking distance to all the bars and shops (and that's very important!). The rooms are well-furnished and each has its own bathroom. Breakfast is always delicious and its fun to mingle with other guests in the dining area. We always enjoy great service from Kelly and Judy! There is a beautiful front porch to sit on and enjoy the view, sometimes a car parade goes by. We love Ashley's!

Thank you for the wonderful review! The Sunday Antique Car Parades are one of favorite Sunday afternoon things to watch from the front porch as well!

We stayed at Ashley's the past 3 summers, part of a group of sailors. Bob, Judy, and Kelly offer excellent accommodations, a very full breakfast to get us started. It's a short walk to shops, restaurants, and the marina. Evenings on the porch... well... there's a another story!!! Looking forward to enjoying time there again!

Bob and Trudy are the best! If you go to Put-In-Island, this is the place to stay! They took us in last minute and were so welcoming! They also offer breakfast and bikes you can go ride. This place is a a great location too! Rent a golf cart!

The staff could not have been nicer. We were greeted at the door and made to feel welcome., Location is great. Lots to do in walking distance, but they also have bicycles available to borrow. We were able to walk to the winery next door. We were there for two nights and can't wait to go back.

we have stayed 2 times at ashley's house. we play volleyball there in august and so far that house karma has brought us very good luck with that. the rooms are quaint, super clean and cozy. the breakfast and yummy coffee each morning wakes you up with a smile. share time with people you have never met from all around the country on the sweet porch as it welcomes cool conversations and new friendships. bob and judy who own the place love people and love that we enjoy their hospitality. i highly recommend this amazing house and atmosphere.

Room Tip: didnt use pool or fitness center. no comment on that

The Island House is run by a wonderful couple and Kelly. Their goal is for you to have a great experience. The front porch is relaxing and the golf cart visitors driving by have a look of envy as they wave to you relaxing on the porch! The location is within easy walking distance of the downtown and winery. Take the Miller Ferry over with free parking on the mainland. Each room now has it's own bathroom and there is a tv in each room. Need advice on where to eat dinner? Judy has the answers and hasn't been wrong yet. You can arrive early in the day and drop your bags in the parlor and when you check-put, drop the bags again and enjoy full days on the island. My only suggestion is to leave the children at home as visitors are expecting a kid-free getaway!

Room Tip: Look at each room online to figure out how you would like your room decorated.

This is a fantastic place to stay! It is on the main road just a block from town, and you don't get all the noise. The Porch is so comfy, you can relax and read or just people watch. Breakfast in the morning was great. We enjoyed meeting other people. Judy, Bob, and Kelly were great hosts. We can't wait to stay there again. We had 2 rooms: 1 for my Husband & I, and 1 for my Mother-in Law, to celebrate her 86th Birthday. It was a success!
