The bed was okay, but everything was very old looking. The decor is bland and felt like we were at a old retreat. No phones, TV. Fan on ceiling was oscillating, loud and just strange, so we stuck a fan in the window to bring in the cool air. The site pictures show a dining room for breakfast, but that...

We were on a biking vacation, the Down Easter Inn, was on the top of a hill, and by the time we all got there we were to tired to ride our bikes back into town, and re climb the big hill back to the the Inn. Our Hosts, Kathleen and Karen, went the extra mile and went and picked...

No it's not fancy. No tv no wifi no phones in the room. So what. Our room was pleasant the beds were comfortable and the towels were plush. The continental breakfast was fine with gluten free pastry made right there. Most of all the staff was very accommodating and the location, right outside town, was quiet but convenient. If you...

We have looked at this hotel for years and thought it would be a great place to stay. We made a reservations this year and found it to be a little run down, clean and very basic. The king bed was very comfortable. Karen had cleaned the room and bathroom nicely, but all the windows were open. There was a...

I read a bad review of the Down Easter Inn and I have to say he can't have been talking about the same place we stayed last weekend. This is a terrific inn, and they go out of their way to be helpful. Sue even drove us to town when our ride couldn't make it! I found the rooms very...

A friend recommended this place after his stay last year and I was not disappointed. Everything about the place is vintage and the staff were super useful in recommending activities for me and my family around town.

...largely for the kayaking and backpacking set so be forewarned if you are not one of those. I clearly was not.

Oh where to begin? We reserved two rooms for two nights. We saw four altogether however, since we were moved downstairs because the upstairs was very hot. The whole place is decrepit. The grounds are mostly neglected, the paint is peeling, the wallpaper in two of the rooms we saw was peeling, the screens don't fit too well so bugs...

We were surprised at this inn. Pictures and website made it sound like a typical quaint old inn, the kind we like. The room, though large, had a motel feel and smell to it. The unusable balcony outside our room looked ready to fall down. The view was of an overgrown lawn and an empty cinderblock pool full of weeds...

What a pleasant break from the "always on" world! I spent a long weekend at the Down Easter Inn and it was really nice to get a break from constant technology. The inn has wifi available in common areas, which is great when you need it, but it is also really nice to be able to get away from it...
