So much nicer than any of the chain hotels in the area and so close to school. We usually stay at the Marriott on campus but it was full and that turned out to be the good news. The house has all the charm on a house originally built in the 1600's, (4 poster bed and beautiful antique furniture) while... More

We enjoyed our one night stay at the Blue Hen B&B in Newark, Delaware. This beautiful house has a quiet charm and richness that was very welcoming. Everything was clean and fresh. The owner Amy took very good care of us, even calling when we were late to make sure we weren't lost. Breakfast of homemade baked goods and granola... More

We did not stay overnight, but it was a great place for a small... More

My daughter and I wanted a B&B that was close to the University of Delaware that also offered lots of charm and Blue Hen B&B scored a ten on both counts. It is about 5 minutes away from the campus. We stayed only one night, but we felt very comfortable in the Wyeth Room. Although our room faced the street,... More

Just stayed at this lovely B&B for 2 nights. The hosts were flexible, prepared for any questions or problems, and the breakfast was delicious. Cassatt room was very comfortable! The location is quite easy to find and close to all Newark areas.

My wife and I had a wonderful three night stay in the Wyeth room! The room was very clean and the bed was quite comfortable. The innkeepers (Amy and Don) were very hospitable and made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. They were accommodating with our dietary restrictions. Don prepared a delicious breakfast for us each... More

We stayed in the Blue Hen as an alternative to a traditional motel. It was an excellent choice. The house has two sections - one dating from the late 1600's and the other from the early 1800's. The historic house has character and charm. The rooms are nicely appointed with traditional style antiques. The hosts provided very personalized services and... More
