Easton Escape

Easton Escape ’s Bartlett Pear Inn began life in 1790. The stately home changed hands often over the years, belonging at different times to a Confederate sympathizer and a U.S. congressman. Chef Jordan Lloyd and his wife, Alice—both Easton natives—bought the historic building in 2009, converting it into a seven-room boutique hotel with comfortable accommodations including the Green Anjou Room. Fresh from stints at Citronelle in New York City and The Four Seasons in DC, Lloyd opened the adjoining Bartlett Pear Restaurant, which emphasizes farm-to-table ingredients. Rates start at $179 per night.
