The Easton House is a non-smoking B&B with 9 guest rooms and a garden cottage. Each room and has its own special character and is decorated in Colonial style with period wall papers, oriental rugs, antique furnishings and family treasures. Throughout the house are original baseboards, moldings and wide plank pine floorboards that have been lovingly restored to their original beauty.
The Easton House is located on a quaint cobblestone street in the heart of downtown Nantucket. It was originally built as a Quaker family home by George Easton in 1812. During its' 200+ year history, it was once known as the Colonial Inn. In the late 1930's the name was changed to Easton House in honor of it's original owners. Four generations of the Ross Family have welcomed guests to this unique three story bed and breakfast for more than 100 years.
The Garden Cottage is an adorable studio cottage located in the back yard of the B&B. It is a comfortable one room cottage, covered with roses in season, and overlooking the yard and gardens of the Easton House. The Garden Cottage is non-smoking, sleeps just two people and is handicapped accessible.
There are two sitting rooms on the first floor. The front parlor has brochures, menus and information about the island. The living room is a great place to read, play games on a rainy day, or watch your favorite TV program. The living room is also where a full continental breakfast is served each morning.
