We've stayed there for one night in September. The location is great: 10 min walk to a ferry terminal, 5 min walk to a bike rental, 5 min walk to the restaurants - you just can't beat that! The place feels very authentic and old but very clean! The hosts were so energetic, friendly and accommodating - they made everything... More

This was our second stay at Easton House, and my girls & I are eager to return. The proprietors are warm and welcoming, the breakfasts are generous and delicious (hot and cold cereals, pastries, fresh fruit salad, yogurt), the rooms are large and clean. There's a beautiful big backyard with grass and flowers where you can relax and park your... More

I had the opportunity to spend a short week on Nantucket, off the coast of Cape Cod. I was referred to the Easton House by a friend and long time island visitor, who I fished with throughout my stay (he rented a beach house with his family). The proprietor Cyril Ross is a native islander, and this historic, 3-story residence... More

We were on Nantucket this weekend for a wedding and needed a last minute place to stay for a night- we are so glad we found the Easton House! This was our first b&b and it really exceeded our expectations. The room was very spacious, comfortable, and clean. And the location can't be beat, a 5 minute walk to everything... More

I think the key to this Inn is getting the right room, as some are much more spacious than others. We had room six on the second floor, it was spacious and featured a comfortable canopy queen bed and an updated private bathroom. We were barely in the room, so the fact that it did not have a television was... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Easton House for four nights, and we loved it! Completely unpretentious and quaint, it is a lovely, affordable bed and breakfast for a trip to Nantucket. The house is 200 years old and absolutely gorgeous and filled with character. Cyril, Judy, and their daughter Deborah were really sweet and accommodating, and made sure... More

Made reservations at an agreed upon price of $275 tax INCLUDED. Judy agreed to this on the phone when making the reservation. When we checked out she charged us $275 PLUS TAX. Tax was over 32 bucks a night. We were floored. Tried to go over the reservation conversation with her but she was too arrogant to even listen. Will... More

Judy and Cyril R, Owner at Easton House, responded to this review

Misunderstandings can happen and I believe this is what happened in this case. This guest originally contacted us about an extended 5-night stay in our garden cottage and was quoted a discounted rate of $275 per night because of the length of stay. When the guest called back to make a reservation, it was for a shorter period of time... More

We felt right at home in the Easton House. The Inn Keepers were very hospitable and provided a wonderful breakfast each morning. Rooms were comfortable and nicely decorated with antiques. Large private yard. Close to town and beaches.

Good location, easy walk from Nantucket town. Everything on Nantucket is expensive (even at $2: £1) and this has to be taken into account. The rooms available are not of the same standard as the equivalent spent in an average English B&B. Lovely garden with loungers, great for reading if one has the time. Best breakfasts of anywhere we stayed... More

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... More
