We had read many reviews and had high expectations. Normally we don't spend this much on accommodations but when we read how great this place was suppose to be we splurged. It was worth every penny. It's very welcoming the moment you walk in. Rooms are a nice size and have everything you need. The décor is fun and we... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here last year and returned this year. Rick is so accommodating and friendly. His mottos seem to be "help yourself" and "is there anything else you need?". We love the balcony rooms to relax outside and enjoy fresh air with a glass of wine or beer (courtesy of Rick!). I love that it is a... More

Rick and Lola have provided a whimsical and relaxing atmosphere at the Blue Water House. You can't help but smile and feel pure joy in the collection of artwork and sayings. We were made to feel like special guests and care is given to be certain all needs are met. I give high marks for cleanliness but would suggest new... More

Loved this place. After a hectic college delivery we knew we were on vacation as soon as we walked in the door. Colorful, unique, friendly, and restful. home-made breakfasts were terrific, afternoon wine and beer was much needed after a day of beach. Nearby Cape Henlopen State Park is one of the loveliest spots on the east coast.

I love this eclectic place full of art and inspirational sayings. We had a very relaxing stay with our 3 month old and even though it was too hot for the beach we could hang out under the porch and chill with refreshments provided not to mention the fantastic breakfast. Everything you need is here. Great get away.

A great end to our trip to the USA. Welcoming hosts, fun rooms and decor, clean and relaxed. Anything you may need is on hand, towels, deckchairs, boogie boards, sun cream.......even a beer in the evening or a glass of wine. The Blue Water House is close to the beach and town. The best beach for us however was Cape... More

This B&B has it all and more. The first thing to strike you is the varied and unusual decoration of the place which is fun and unusual.We booked well in advance to be sure of getting the room we wanted and we were not disappointed. We had a corner room with balcony which was great to sit out on of... More

This is my 4th stay at the BWH. The place is chocked full of clever oddities and exudes funky charm. The upstairs wraparound porch is a wonderful place. Rick and his dog Lola preside. Rick is warm and gracious and goes out of his way to provide all nature of snacks, water, wine, beach towels, bikes, etc. Easy walk to... More

Well, it helps that it's in Lewes, Del., one of our favorite places in the world. We have been staying at the BWH for something close to 20 years. It's definitely the best bet in accommodations in Lewes. There's always something new in the bright, funky, artsy decor, and our innkeeper, Rick, could give classes in how to run a... More

Excellent hospitality. Rick, the proprietor, seems to genuinely enjoy creating a warm and comfortable place for a trip to the beach. He's very good at what he does and will help you in any way he can. I plan to visit again soon. Only a short walk to the beach, too!
