I shy away from the beach - the crowd, the stress, the coordination. The Blue Water House is a drastic departure from all of that. The aesthetic was perfect - so much energy and so much to look at. The amenities couldn't get any better - bikes, towels, beach chairs, sun tan lotion, complimentary beer/wine/water/soda, home-style breakfasts. You don't have... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Blue Water House (Key Lime room) on our way up to the Jersey Shore. I think it was one of the most fun B&B's we've ever stayed at. It's a very interesting, eclectic "artsy" house with so much to look at inside and out. But best of all was the homey feel... More

The place was great! Every time you enter you found something different that you missed before the artwork and surroundings were awesome. Rick and Ali and young man A.J. are the best. Thank you! For everything we had a great time. Wink & Patti

Blue Water House is a favorite of my family and friends. We try to go every year. The place is funky, pretty, happy, comfortable, spacious, friendly, and a block walk to a great beach. A ten minute walk into town. Perfecto! Rick and his dog Lola are the perfect hosts, leaving out treats, waters, wines, and fruit for all day... More

As a first time bed and breakfast guest, I didn't know what to expect. Rick and the staff at the Blue Water House far exceeded my expectations. We felt very welcomed and well taken care of. A million thanks to you Rick, Ally, and Lola !

Room was perfect for a quick weekend stay. We had a great bike ride on the bikes provided and breakfast was awesome! Rick couldn't have been more helpful with suggestions on where to eat and washing the muddy lacrosse uniform

The rooms were immaculate and spacious, the house was eclectic and loads of fun. The breakfast was great. This was our first B&B experience and we are sold. Having a bathroom in every room made it a perfect fit. Should we ever come back to Lewes we will definitely try to book a room here again.

Rick and Ali are nice hosts and the Blue Water House has a bunch of interestingly decorated and very comfortable rooms. The bikes, chairs and other beach articles are a welcome treat for the guests use, as this visit to Lewes was a quick pop over from Annapolis for a few days so we did not pack for the beach....

I really had fun just wandering around looking at all the "stuff". Nice large corner room (Key West), spent a lot of time on the porch, very comfortable bed. Many options for breakfast. Super accommodating. Bikes, beach chairs and towels available for free. Good location halfway between the canal and beach.

This is our favorite beach location of all time! It's only two blocks back from the beach and a few blocks away from downtown, food and shopping. It's in a residential area and is quiet and leaves more breathing room on the beach! As far as the B&B itself, it's so visually interesting with all the quirky artwork the owner... More
