A large continental breakfast is provided to all guests and it is served in their main dining room.

Ashley’s Island House Testimonials

This was the second year we came to Ashley’s Island House, and we again had a great time. The rooms are cozy with each having it’s own bathroom. Each bedroom has it’s own theme. There is a nice, large front porch with wicker furniture to relax on. The hotel is located within easy walking distance of downtown in a quiet area. Service is very good, with friendly staff that give helpful tips about your stay on the island. They have a nice continental breakfast each morning. Our departure was delayed by wind and high waves on Sunday, October 27th, 2019. The staff kept us informed of the Jet Express status. When the Jet began running in early afternoon, the owner, David, was kind enough to take us to the Jet Express dock in his personal vehicle. Very nice, since the day was cold and blustery. We will definitely be staying here again!

Loved this B&B! The hosts were genuinely friendly and helpful with familiarizing us with things to do on the island. The house and our room were so clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The front porch is a lovely spot to sit and relax after a busy day on the island. Breakfast was good and made even better by the friendly talks with our hostess. We would love to stay here again!

Just returned from a two night stay at Ashley’s Island House and it was a wonderful experience! Owner was there when we arrived and, since it was our first visit to the island, he gave us an island tour on one of their golf carts. Our stay just continued to be top notch during our entire visit. They had a cancellation and since that room was larger than our booked room they offered us that room – which I thought was a very nice gesture. Also really enjoyed making new friends with all the guests on the porch.
