We stayed the weekend of Feb 6-8, 2015 and what an absolutely wonderful surprise this place is! The decor is so much fun and cheerful and unique as are the rooms! Rick was wonderful and made us feel so at home and Allie was so friendly and helpful with anything we needed. The amenities were top notch and the rooms... More

Four of us stayed for Valentine's Day weekend. Rick Quill, the owner, and Allie, his assistant, greeted us with a warm welcome and we felt at home from that moment on. It was unlike any B&B I've experienced in a wonderfully fun way. The setting for each room is different and themed (e.g., Key West, The Hemingway). The rooms are... More

My husband and I stayed along with another couple. We loved our stay at the bed and breakfast! Each room is decorated beautifully! My husband loved the buffet of sweets set up! Ali and Rick are exceptional hosts that open their home to you! We treasured our time there and the fact we made new friends!

This B&B ish place is comfortable and convenient. We've stayed here before and will come back. The proprietor, Rick, is the consummate host. Staying at the Blue Water House is like staying with family. If you like funky contemporary art and decor you can keep busy just looking at the walls.

What a treat we experienced when when we stayed at the Blue Water House. It's eclectic style, bright beachy colors, and funky art work make it impossible to not be happy. Rick Quill, Innkeeper, is a fabulous host as is his constant companion, Lola the Dog. We stayed for two gray November days and we uplifted and cheered by the... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Blue Water House for two nights. We loved the eclectic style and art work everywhere which gives this wonderful B&B a style and individuality that is lost in other places. Rick and Ali were helpful, friendly and unobtrusive - if we needed them, they were there, as was Lola, Rick's rescue dog... More

This was our second stay at the Blue Water. We are in the process of moving to Lewes (YAY) so needed an overnight location - so happy we chose the Blue Water again! Rooms are stylish and funky and scrupulously clean(I travel a lot and I am picky about clean!) and our king bed in the Torch room was heavenly!... More

I can't say enough about how wonderful our hosts were! Great B and B, excellent location on a quiet street close to Henlopen and all the restaurants and shops. Loved the artwork and decor. Spacious rooms, great outdoor area.

Rick really is a great host, friendly and helpful but not intrusive in the least. Also he makes certain that the public and private rooms are immaculate. The overall decor is distinctively fanciful which gives the entire place a very comfortable feel. .

Our first reaction was that the place was very "cool". We felt at home from the moment we arrived. It was clean comfortable and the decor was extremely well done. We stayed in the Hemingway room which was awesome. We loved the open kitchen where we could go for snacks and drinks. Breakfast was tasty and adequate. Wide selection of... More
