My girlfriend and I spent a long Memorial Day weekend At Melissa's B&B. It was such a wonderful experience all around. My Girlfriend has a Glueten Allergy and the Glueten Free breakfast was what initially attracted me to book here. Melissa did not disappoint! The food was amazing everyday and ever thing put out for guests was Glueten Free. Melissa... More

My fiance and I were in town for a wedding we were both in, and decided to stay somewhere besides the "hotels" downtown. Since I grew up visiting family in Rehoboth, the area was not new to me, and I had walked by At Melissa's many times. However, this was our first experience at a B & B and it... More

We loved every part of our experience. Melissa was extremely friendly and hospitable. The accommodations were great - we were in the "penthouse" and it was fantastic - lovely shower. The food was exceptional delicious and generous. Loved the location and the amenities. It was cold and rainy and even snowy, but that didn't matter - we just enjoyed hanging... More

Nice & relaxing B&B with a super friendly owner/host. We had a great bright room with a comfy king bed & a very comfortable bathroom and spacious shower. Perfect location for the beach. The owner offers complimentary wine, beer, & board games in a cozy living room to lounge around & chat with other guests. Great breakfast & the inn... More

Wonderful B&B. Melissa pays great attention to detail and makes you feel like you are honored guests in her home. I would love to come back in the summer. Great location and great breakfast. Even the other guests were warm and friendly.

This was our first visit to a B&B. Very enjoyable. We stayed in rm #1, first floor, w private bath. Only 6 rooms, which i liked. When we "checked" in, there was free wine, beer, soda. As well as snacks. Breakfast was also free. Waffles, bagels, yogurt, cereal, and more. I believe they might have even made eggs if you... More

My husband and I took a much-needed trip to the beach last week, and this was our first stay at Melissa's. It feels like a family beach house that is casual yet provides lots of amenities: beach chairs, umbrellas, towels (plus large tote bag to carry them and other beach stuff), coolers, free drinks (wine, beer, soda, water, coffee, tea,...

Everything about Melissa's is outstanding! I can't think of anything which could be added to make a more comfortable stay. The breakfasts are incredible! They're all gluten free and often include quiche and homemade blueberry muffins. I'm already looking forward to going back next year.

I have been staying here for 10 years now, and have never been anything but thrilled with every aspect of this B & B. At Melissa's is your mother's beach house if, that is, your mother anticipated your every need. And if your Mom provided luxury linens and up-to-minute bathrooms. Melissa is constantly updating and improving. For example, she recently... More

Perfect, is the first word that comes to mind when I think of our stay at Melissa's B&B. We had a fantastic stay this past weekend and can't wait to book our stay for next year. Melissa truly makes you feel welcomed and goes out of her way to make everything perfect. Breakfast, beach towels, umbrellas, beach chairs, free beer... More
