We received a bed and breakfast gift card and decided to put it towards a long weekend at the beach with our dogs. We selected The Homestead at Rehoboth and our weekend was wonderful-even the rainy weather didn't dampen our experience. We stayed in the Garden Room which has french doors leading out to the porch/garden area. The fenced in dog area was enough room for the dogs to run around, and there was a quiet neighborhood across the street that was perfect for an early morning walk with the dogs. Joe and Dave provided information on pet friendly restaurants, beaches, stores etc... and also provided dog towels, sheets and bowls. With their guidance we were able to spend a day at the beach with the dogs, followed by dinner and ice cream at pet friendly locations.
The B&B is in a good location, close to 'everything', which also means it is in a high traffic area but we found shortcuts around the area fairly easily. Note: Rehoboth in general has traffic flow issues.
The complimentary breakfast at The Homestead is a must- I would drive the 2+ hours back to Rehoboth just for their banana pancakes. They have water, tea and coffee available all day for guests.
The room was comfortable, clean and private. Upon arrival we were worried about the noise level in the garden room because it is on the first floor with windows open to the front porch and the steps upstairs right outside the room- there was no need to worry, we simply shut the curtains when privacy was wanted and there was minimal to no noise. We spent many hours on the porch with the dogs, using the porch essentially an extension of our room.
We will definitely be going back to The Homestead at Rehoboth.
