I just wanted to get away to the beach and take one of my dogs so I am not sure what I expected. So I was delighted to find The Homestead - it was so relaxing and welcoming to me and my dog. Joe and Dave are great hosts and extremely helpful. My room was comfortable, nicely appointed and inviting. At breakfast and in the early evening, I wasn't in my room but downstairs talking with other guests, while my pup loved playing with the other dogs. They had beach towels for me and my dog, as well as beach umbrellas and chairs. I went to Henlopen State Park Herring Beach (dog beach) which was perfect - not crowded, and just what I wanted. There really isn't any place to walk to from the Bed and Breakfast, but I took my dog and left after a wonderful breakfast and didn't return until late afternoon.
