If you're looking for a comfortable place to spend a night or a weekend in a beautiful community like Three Village or Port Jefferson, you could choose a big hotel on a busy highway, you could choose a pricey inn – or you could choose a local bed-and-breakfast such as Aunt Betty's Bed and Breakfast in East Setauket.
TripAdvisor.com reviewers loved Aunt Betty's, saying things like "Aunt Betty's Bed and Breakfast is significantly better than staying in a hotel or motel," and "It was as though it was our own home," and "If you are looking for comfort, convenience and squeaky clean accommodations, look no further."
Owner Betty Reinke, who also runs a house cleaning business, started the bed and breakfast five years ago in her home of 30 years. Among her breakfast specialities are extra-crispy French toast and egg-in-the-hole-in-the-bread. Summers are booked solid and other weekends often fill up too, she said.
"I'm really a down-home kind of woman. That's why they come here," she said. "They feel like they're home."
