The best thing about staying at the Lighthouse is the location - it is wonderful to be that close to the beach and the boardwalk action. Also, the innkeepers were very nice and accommodating. The price was high, but expected for high season in the heart of Rehoboth. The room was clean, but could use some updating (especially the bathroom,... More

We have been visiting the Lighthouse B&B for several years and once again, Matt and Jerry are the consummate innkeepers! We arrived on a very hot day and stayed at their Cape Henry Cottage, adjacent to the Inn. As we walked in the door, we felt the coolness of air conditioned comfort, along with some gentle beach music playing in... More

This was our second stay at the Lighthouse Inn, and it's probably our favorite place to spend a romantic vacation. Matt and Jerry are extraordinarily accommodating, and treat everyone like family. The Saturday wine and cheese party is great fun, and Jerry's Sunday breakfasts are spectacular. They're the best!

My husband and I needed a quick getaway from our everyday hassles. This was our first stay at the Lighthouse Inn and it was a perfect choice. Matt and Jerry are the perfect hosts. The Inn is spotless and the ambience is wonderful. We are already looking to go back for a few days as soon as possible. sca- vienna,... More

This was our second stay at the Lighthouse Inn. The service was excellent – from the breakfast to an evening night cap. The Inn is very convenient to everything, free off-street parking and exceptionally affordable for a few days at the beach. Jerry and Matt also provided fantastic recommendations from a nice family dinner, local golf course to the best... More

My mom and I take a trip every year for a few days. This year we chose Rehoboth and spent 2 nights at the Lighthouse Inn. Everything about it was delightful. The location was close to the beach, shopping, and dining. Matt and Jerry were so welcoming and helpful, we felt like family. We will be back again!

Matt and Jerry are lovely hosts. Their restaurant recommendations were on the mark, they offered beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, and goodness knows what else to bring down to the beach (merely 1/2 block away), hosted a nice little wine and cheese gathering for the guests at cocktail hour on Saturday, and left us a nightcap and truffles...

My husband and I travel regulary with our son and daughter-in-law to Rehoboth. On previous trips we have stayed at hotels, and once before at this B&B. We all agree that the personal service, special touches, amenities, and unique accomodations at the Lighthouse Inn far exceed any hotel on the boardwalk. The prices were equivalant or in some cases even... More

Innkeepers Matt & Jerry accomodated our every need.. even making a room available for us for a one night lay-over situation and providing wine glasses :) Clean, quiet, peaceful... I can only describe it as perfect for a relaxing get-away. The breakfast is charming. We will be back. As far as the rest of Rehoboth Beach... wonderful! Eat at Dos... More

I just have to laugh at the two low ratings for this B&B. IT'S THE BEACH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, NOT A SPA! You shouldn't expect elegant antiques and jacuzzis in a beach town. Matt and Jerry are excellent innkeepers and go to full measure to make your stay comfortable and fun. The place is immaculately clean and a half... More
