My wife and I stayed here for a long vacation, and are so glad we did. The hotels in Easton are across the highway and a good distance from downtown Easton, so you would have to drive each time you wanted to go into the city. This B&B is right in the middle of downtown, and you can walk to... More

My husband and I have stayed in many bed and breakfast inns, and this is absolutely one of our favorites! We recently discovered the quaint town of Easton, Maryland and made last minute plans a couple weeks ago to visit the town and stay overnight. I had some trouble in my search as most places were booked, but I was... More

I recently was in Easton for a 3-day workshop and stayed at a B&B a few steps down the street from the JS McDaniel House. My friend and several other participants in the workshop were staying at the JS McDaniel House and the innkeeper, Mary Lou, graciously invited me to join the group for breakfast every morning during my stay....

We spent two two lovely nights at this B&B. Unfortunately it rained most of the time but Mary Lou, the innkeeper, helped us turn the raindrops into fun drops. The house is a restored, spotless Victorian, the breakfasts were excellent, the gardens beautiful and this visit, compliments of a PBS drawing and Mary Lou's generosity, was a wonderful experience on...

We stay with MaryLou every year for IM Eagleman and most recently for IM Maryland. It feels like we are coming home! Comfortable, bright and immaculately clean rooms. Wonderful breakfasts and if we are racing she packs us a brunch to take and enjoy after our race! I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area.

Don't mind the short walk to Harrison or Washington St. Nicely maintained Victorian with great beds and, in the one we had, a champagne bubble bath and a separate stall shower in a huge bathroom. Lovely gardens. Mary Lou is a great hostess and a wonderful breakfast cook who does gluten free and veggie if you want. Great selection of... More

If you are wanting to experience the Best of Easton, add the John S. McDaniel House to your vacation plans. My daughter and I have just returned from a week at this incredible Victorian Bed and Breakfast. Early morning coffee led into an elegant breakfast at our chosen times. Snacks and a library of videos were available for those afternoon... More

This was our second return visit to the John S. McDaniel House in Easton, Maryland. For anyone who longs for a gracious host and hostess with an old-world charm, gourmet food, yet modern amenities, I can't say enough about the McDaniel House. From the moment we arrived, Mary Lou and Fran, the innkeepers, were delightful. We arrived in time for... More

This is our second stay at the inn, and we much enjoyed both times (April 2013 and April 2011). Mary Lou is an excellent host and cook, and her husband helped with directions (printed out for us) for the next day's trip to Williamsburg. They made us feel very welcome without hovering. The restaurant recommendation was also top notch -Bannings... More

What a great find. Mary Lou was an exceptional host. Our room was bright, sunny and huge and had a king size bed and a fireplace. The bathroom was very nice - even had a towel warming rack. The breakfast on Sunday morning was very good and included home made bread. We will definitely be back.
