If you are looking for a warm, inviting place to stay with hosts that are instantly family, look no further. While it is not a beach front accommodation, you will enjoy the care and comfort of this lovely little farm house located abt. 2 miles from downtown Rehoboth. Joe and David were warm and welcoming from my first call to them - and even checked in with me the morning I was arriving to make sure they knew when to expect me and I knew how to find the inn.
The room (Sea Glass) was small (which is well-documented) but nicely appointed. The bathroom was wonderfully spacious. The wrap-around porch was comfortable, albeit noisy from traffic at a very busy intersection (Rte. 24 and Old Landing Rd.). We should have sought refuge in the spacious back yard garden. ** It can be noisy in the room at night as well, but traffic usually dies down by 11 pm.
Breakfast was delightful and delicious. We got to sample their popular banana pancakes and fresh blueberry sauce with crisp bacon and plenty of fruit. There was also a plentitude of muffins, pastry, cereal and coffee/tea.
The Homestead is definitely worth the money - especially if you are considering a hotel outside of the main part of town. You won't be disappointed.
