My elderly mother spent the night in one room, and my wife and I spent the night in another -- and we agreed as we drove home to Connecticut the next day that the Lafayette Inn may have been the best B and B we've every experienced (and my 80 year-old mother has experienced a few!). The rooms were exceptionally comfortable, even luxurious, the breakfast was made-to-order and plentiful, the staff was highly accommodating -- they even set up a special table for us for breakfast when several of our family showed up unexpectedly -- and the architecture and design of the Inn itself are spectacular. I was raised in Easton just a few blocks from the Inn, so it was particularly meaningful for me to spend such a pleasant 24 hours. Highly, highly recommended.

Not sure it qualifies as a Diamond Member based on the quality of the individual rooms. Staff was very friendly. Warm, tasty breads served at night with drinks available. Breakfast was fresh, delicious, and served graciously. Our balcony room lended the extra space, but improvements, especially to the bathrooms, were recommended. Quiet room, well air conditioned, so we had a good nights rest for our 2 night stay.

Visited PA over the weekend (Thurs., Fri, Sat) just for the vacation. Had the reservation and really it was an awesome place to stay. It is in a quiet place and really nice and clean. The staff was friendly and great. I needed to gather some information for around the place and the staff there helped me out with that. I missed the breakfast for one day due my lazy ass.... but next day I had an awesome breakfast.....I mean it was delicious and just too good. The rooms were clean and the price was right to stay in there. It is located in a quiet place and had a great time.

We had a great weekend in Easton. We were traveling with our two year old twins. Our room was big enough to hold two travel cribs. Breakfast was wonderful and it was great to have other families around who were traveling with young children. Everyone at the inn was helpful in helping us plan a weekend that we could enjoy as a family! We hope to come back soon!

Dear Paul & Laura, Thank you so much for the great hospitality and all the help you have provided to make last weekend very special for my wife and myself. Your place is beautiful and we will recommend the Lafayette Inn to everyone we know. There is an old saying “You are only as good as the company you keep” and with your wonderful staff, and your referrals of Roger from Have Balloon Will Travel, Luna Setta, the massage therapist and the outstanding recommendation of Lois Heckman for our marriage vow renewal the weekend could not have been better and that makes The Lafayette Inn that much greater. You two should be proud of yourselves and the business you are running. This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast, but thanks to you it will NOT be our last. Keep up the great work. Best regards, Danny & Janine p.s. The Belgium Waffles were the best I ever had.

We went to Easton for the weekend for my son's wedding. Our stay at the Lafayette completed a perfect experience. The room was a generous size complemented by lovely pieces. The breakfast was homemade to be eaten in a cheery sun room. The wrap around porch was perfect for the afternoon wine and cheese. The distinctive parlor offered homemade goodies. Thank you to the innkeepers for an amazing stay.

My husband and I decided to stay at the Lafayette Inn as we had planned to take our 3 year old son to the Crayola Experience on Saturday and then a late Sunday morning Easter Bunny Train Ride in Phillipsburg, NJ. The Lafayette Inn was centrally located to everything. I have to say, the B&B was the best part of "Mommy's" weekend as it was the perfect retreat after a long day of child activities. The afternoon wine and cheese was a nice little treat and the morning breakfast was delicious! What a bright and inviting room to start your day off in. Room Eleven (#11) was the perfect size for all of us. We very much enjoyed the beauty of the house and all the houses in the surrounding area. While my son was napping in his stroller my husband and I walked around for almost two hours picking out the distinct and charming characteristics of each home we passed. Though, I never attended nor had a connection to Lafayette College the Inn would be the perfect place to stay for parents/family visiting their children. Lastly, the owner and employees of the inn were very pleasant and open to conversation. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to families, couples, etc. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Brian didn't want me cooking and cleaning up -- he just wanted a relaxed evening to celebrate his birthday, so we ended up at the Lafayette Inn. it was a nice, quiet get away. We had a very enjoyable evening.

The Inn was lovely and we needed a glass of wine (or two) after a birthday party we had to attend. It seemed the walls were a bit thin. Our bed was against another rooms wall and we heard their entire conversation during the day while we were resting prior to going out. Restaurant the Inn recommended was wonderful and BYOB. The breakfast was outstanding and the service was great too. You have to keep in mind that this is a college town so be prepared around 2AM to hear some youngsters coming home from the bars.

We stayed one night. Service was good, room clean, price right. Only concern was privacy (could hear neighbors and children running in hallway)

We chose the area of Easton Pennsylvania primarily because we wanted to visit the Martin Guitar Company located in Nazareth. We used the Select Registry to find the Lafayette Inn. We were extremely pleased with the accommodations at the Inn. The location was great. We also went to Bethlehem and attended a concert at the Stage Theatre in Easton which was lovely. The room we stayed in was very nice with a private entrance and a whirlpool tub. The breakfast was delicious and the added touch of 24 hour access to cake and coffee and wine and cheese on the weekend late afternoons was a plus. The Lafayette College was a great place to go for a walk. The innkeeper was extremely helpful providing information on where to dine and what to see. We would definitely recommend the Lafayette Inn and would make a return trip in the future.

The room was beautiful. The food was great. There was wine and cheese in the evening. Cake and sodas 24-7 in the lovely living room. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Good service, but it felt like a hotel rather than a B&B. I really expected more. Breakfast was average rather than outstanding.

We were impressed with the innkeepers and their assistant, who were very welcoming. We received excellent suggestions regarding area restaurants and attractions. All areas of the inn were well maintained (rooms, parlor, breakfast area, deck) and the breakfast was delicious. Every detail was taken care of! We had a great time.

The minute we walked into the Lafayette we smelled baked goods and had a warm welcome. My daughter (3yrs) felt so comfortable that she took off her shoes at the door and said where's Papa (grandpa). The inn just felt like home from the exquisite breakfast in the sun room to the parlor that had free freshly baked treats, coffee and classical music to sooth any hardened New Yorkers soul. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. If you have kids the Crayola Factory package beats any local offer. Enjoy this home away from home. Best experience we've had in a long time.

Our stay at the Lafayette Inn was perfect. It's an old mansion restored to a state of loveliness & grace. Rooms are large, romantic, & comfortable. The salon has big, comfortable furniture in several conversation areas-- includes books, current newspapers & magazines, a fire, a piano, even a complimentary coffee bar with homemade pastries. Breakfast is hearty and made to order. The staff are attentive but not intrusive. Everyone seems to be glad they're there. You will be hard pressed to find anything lacking at this lovely inn.

After a hectic day of moving our son into his room at Lafayette College it was so refreshing to walk into the parlor of the Inn where wine and cheese were waiting for us while we checked in. The suite we stayed in was very clean and nicely done. Breakfast next morning was great-baked eggs and fried potatoes and the NYTimes. One of the best Inn's we've stayed in.

I was googling 'Romantic Weekend Getaways'. This inn came up. What caught my eyes was that they welcomed pets. We have a 5 month old yorkie. It was an outstanding stay, they were amazing. We will absolutely return again! Keep it up!

The inn was elegant, yet not 'stuffy'. Our breakfasts were well planned and delicious. The owners are gracious, kind, friendly and perfectionists (in a good way!)!

We wanted to stay at the Lafayette Inn one time before our son graduates in May. We found it delightful, wonderfully charming and very comparable to local hotels we have used in the past. The $ 175.00 room was a touch pricey, but the lovely Sunday morning breakfast and the prime location near campus offset this cost issue. We would highly recommend!

My 3-nights there were beyond my expectations! They were very helpful and friendly. the food was great, too!

Laura & Paul are great hosts/inn-keepers and wonderful cooks. Breakfast never tasted so good. We love the personal touches around the Inn, the parlor, the warm and inviting decor. The room was very comfortable and spacious, and super super clean. Totally a place to relax and enjoy your sourroundings.
