We had a wonderful stay "At Melissa's" in July of 2011. Our main reasons for visiting Rehoboth Beach were to go to the Dogfish Head Brewpub on Rehoboth Avenue and the Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton, DE, and to have some beach time as well. The location of "At Melissa's" is perfect: only 1.5 blocks from the beach and boardwalk, and also just a short walk from the shops and restaurants downtown; we didn't need to use our rental car for anything that we did in Rehoboth. Melissa provided a wonderful selection of breakfast items each morning; I am a vegetarian and my husband is an omnivore, and we were both very happy with the delicious breakfast offerings: hard boiled eggs, waffles (make them yourself using batter already prepped), the pastry/baked good du jour, the meat item du jour (bacon or sausage) fresh fruit, a choice of juices, coffee, tea, etc. Complimentary wine, soda, and beer was available whenever we liked. There was an adorable sitting and dining area in the backyard. Melissa's also had a beautiful front porch porch, which was lovely to sit at for dining, talking, or just relaxing. We stayed for four nights. On our first night, we stayed in the room with the daybed and a separate (but not shared) bathroom. For the next three nights, we stayed in a room with a private bath within the room. Both rooms were lovely, comfortable, and clean. The toiletries, towels, and linens provided were perfect, and our room was attended to daily. Melissa was very helpful in providing directions and suggestions for beach spots and dining suggestions when we requested them. Beach chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers/ice, and beach towels are all available for guests' complimentary use, which was very helpful. On our first beach day, we found that the particular umbrella that we had chosen from At Melissa's wasn't very functional, and the chairs were a little low for our liking, so we ended up renting both chairs and an umbrella at the beach on our second beach day instead (there are little rental kiosks all along the beach, and the rental staff will put the umbrellas into the ground for you...the rental umbrellas are very sturdy, so we found this service to be worth the money for our purposes). Melissa was extremely accommodating of our late-arrival time on our first night there due to a late flight arrival. We felt that the price was very reasonable for a place so close to the beach and Rehoboth Avenue. If you are looking for a quiet, charming place that is also convenient to the beach, boardwalk, shops, and restaurants, then I highly recommend "At Melissa's." We loved our stay "At Melissa's," and will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Rehoboth Beach!
