My partner and I have been to the Rams Head Inn for the 4th time. Each visit gets better!
What to Expect:
When you arrive, you are warmly greeted by Frank and Paul, the owners. They will ask how your trip was, what you plan on doing in Rehoboth, engage some simple chit chat. You know, it's called having a conversation and getting to know your guests. You'll be lead back to the office, finalize your bill, and given you room keys. if it's your first time, you'll be given a tour of the compound, which is very well maintained and full of tropical life. You'll be shown your room, the gym, sauna, pool, pool area, the hottub, and, yes, there is a designated, VERY private area on a far corner of the property that is for having fun. It's a clothing optional gay resort....what do you expect? We enjoy the fact that there is a place for us to explore our exhibitionist side. The owners will ask a few simple questions to help you with your stay, as well as help them to accomodate you as much as possible. They will give you information on recommeded restaurants, stores and shops in town....and will even give you COUPONS!...yes, ways for you to save your money, and places to mention where you are staying to get a discount. Everything they do, they do for a purpose, not to be intrusive or nosey. It helps them plan their day, mainly to know when they can clean your room, how many day passes they can allow per day, etc...so they aren't violating YOUR time. If you are laying around the pool, yes, they will be cleaning the pool, trimming the bushes, watering the plants, mainly because they have a business to run, and are taking their time and planning it accordingly as not to waste it, as any good business owners do. They will most likely strike up a converstaion with you, and you are more than welcome to talk back. I'm sure if you asked them nicely to be left alone, you are enjoying your quiet, etc, they wouldn't be offended and will go about your business. All the rooms are large and comfortable, with their own bathrooms and view of the property. They all have a sign posted with simple rules of the property, that were also in place with the previous owners. Rules on how to make everyone's visit more enjoyable, please don't empty the ice machine that is for guests to cool your drinks you are taking to the beach, the sheets are changed every other day to help save water, etc. Normal rules for a NORMAL bed and breakfast. Every day you get fresh towels, garbage removed, your bed fixed up, and room straigtened up. In the mornings, there is always fresh coffee, hot tea, waffles, yogurt, fresh fruit, cold cereral, instant oatmeal and grits, milk and juice. Breakfast runs from 6am-10am. The office has a huge selection of movies, both family and adult, that you can view in your room. Any problem, within reason, will be taken care of promptly and courteously, and Paul and Frank will bend over backwards to make your stay a wonderful and memorable one. The entire pool/outdoor area is open air, and there are many, many ashtrays around the property. If you are a non-smoker, there is plenty of space that you needn't be surrounded by smoke. The facility is located about 2 miles from the oceanfront....away from all the hustle and bustle of town. This is one of the major things that drew us to this place. We had no desire to be stuck in town with all the tourists. We are able to hop in the car, take a short drive into town, park, walk, shop, eat, have drinks, party at the clubs, go back and relax in the pool or hot tub without alot of people bothering us.
No not expect any pretentiousness, attitude, or negativity. You will not get any of this from the owners. They will do everything they can, within reason, to make your visit a worthwhile and memorable one. Any questions you have will be answered, and problem will be taken care of. For being such a large facility, being run by 2 people, they handle everything with grace and professionalism.
We have visited through two owners, and we don't care what they look like, how they talk, or what company they keep. We also realize that the owners also call The Rams Head home, they have their apartment in the basement, so it's not only they likelyhood, it's also their life. And they do an excellent job. We will continue to return, summer after summer. And we will sing its praises to our friends, and do our best to bring business to this wonderul place.
