The Ransome Inn has one "standard room", one suite with ensuite bath and a separate suite over the garage at the rear of the property. We stayed in the standard room, and were surprised to learn on arrival that it had a "trundle bed", which pulls out to be 2 singles. When booking, I had asked about the bath, but didn't ask if it was ensuite. It turned out to be across the hall, right next to the owners' open bedroom door. The owners have three small dogs and three cats, which can be a problem if you have allergies, as the pets apparently have the run of the house. The owners are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not notable at our recent off-season visit. When we researched places to stay in Port Jefferson, the Ransome Inn B&B came up as affordable and now we know why. Still, I would prefer it to most motels.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Ransome Inn Circa 1868, this cedar-clapboard covered, side-gables house began as a simple Cape Cod with a central-front entry-way with windows placed symmetrically on either side. Over the years, a front porch was added as were dormers on both the front and back. Recently a two story addition on the west side of the house gave an extra room to each floor. Shutters on the six-over-six windows add to the Cape Cod effect.Join us at The Ransome Inn and make your stay in Port Jefferson a special one.Upon arriving at The Ransome Inn, you will be greeted by all the conveniences of your home and office while treating yourself to an abundance of indulgences waiting for you.
