My wife and I stayed at the Rehoboth Guest House in the middle of December for a 2-day getaway. The place was beautifully decorated for the Holidays. All the rooms are beautiful, comfortable, well equipped and very clean. Hosts Steve and Tom were so welcoming and friendly, making us feel like family. Breakfast was excellent. This B&B stands out above all other B&Bs. We look forward to a return visit.

I have stayed at this guest house a number of times over the past several years, most recently during Rehoboth's Sea Witch festival weekend this October (2014). The property has been substantially renovated and this is far more than a place to store your luggage, sleep and shower - it's an experience that feels like home. The backyard is a delightful oasis and the interior is charming -- nice candle burning and music playing. The breakfast is phenomenal - virtually every breakfast food you could ever want. The innkeeper and his partner are extremely friendly and work very hard to make guests feel welcome. They also really get into decorating - see included photos from Halloween. The location is terrific for getting to the beach (5-10 minute walk) or to the nightlife (it's just behind the Blue Moon). Room interiors have also been completely redone; the bed is very comfortable.

I stayed at the Rehoboth Guest House the first weekend of December for the half marathon in town that weekend. I could not have picked a better place to stay! The innkeeper was finishing some decorating and baking when I arrived, so the place looked and smelled WONDERFUL. The room was lovely and clean. The bathroom was next to our room and had a great claw foot tub in it! The innkeeper was accommodating to all the racers by putting out some easy breakfast foods before the run, even though is was a few hours before they normally serve breakfast. They also had vegan options for breakfast, which was great for me. I would definitely stay here again! Also, the dog Rambo was the cutest!

Room Tip: Some rooms have bathrooms in them, some do not. Choose based on your need.

Wow -- I was so amazed by this special place in Rehoboth Beach! We turned the corner onto Maryland Ave. and were blown away by the *beautifully decorated* guest house (B&B) where we had reserved a room! Our host, Steve and his sweet puppy, Rambo (whose name I first misunderstood as "Rainbow"!) were genuinely kind, welcoming and helpful. The main rooms as well as our bedroom was stylish and lovely. Our room and bed yielded a sound night's sleep -- a key feature when one has to arise at 5 a.m. for a road race the next morning. Steve was even so gracious as to set out coffee, tea and many snacks for those of us heading out for the early-morning race (with a full & delicious breakfast prepared afterwards, of course!) We will absolutely stay here again!!

Just returned from a weekend at Rehoboth Guest House and absolutely can't wait to return. Steve, Tom and Garret could not have been more welcoming and the Inn is spotless, so cozy and beautifully decorated. The location is perfect - you can park once and walk everywhere. It's truly a fabulous place to visit any time of the year and I look forward to returning soon. I almost didn't want to write a review to keep this secret gem all to myself!

My friend and i decided we needed to get away and had never spent time at a B &B
And after seeing this website booked it immediately ..from the lovely front porch and the homey ecletic styling of the rooms i was sold . upon arriving steve and tom's smiling faces were welcoming and of course Rambo was a dear (the resident chi chi)... I gotta say after this experience i will never stay at a cold impersonal hotel again .. all the fellow houseguests were super friendly everyone introduced themselves ...breakfast was amazing considering we expected a continental breakfast and it was a full breakfast spread ...delicious fresh baked pies and cakes..sausage and scrambled eggs ..yum
The guys (tom and steve) were super helpful suggesting places to go for entertainment and food ...it was such a comfortable atmosphere it was like staying at a friends house .
Saturday night we had plans to go out to eat and hit a local pub ....we never made it off the back veranda ..it was much more entertaining to just hang out with the other guests and shoot the bull .... one of the best mini vacations i have ever had ...i highly reccomend it ...the only negative was we had to leave on sunday to go home ...
Rates were reasonable. we were a little hesitant about the shared bathroom situation that came with our room (as most rooms have private baths ) but it turned out not to be a problem at all .
I gotta say my friend and i have decided we will never stay anywhere else again...kudos tom and steve ...great job

We loved this Inn so much when we visited last April, this time my husband I brought a friend so she could see it too. She was so thrilled with the place, the people, the attention to detail.
Our rooms were lovely, the staff...what can I say? Warm hugs all around greeted us- the smell of fresh baked goods the moment we got in the door! Steve and Tom and the staff are so delightful.
I said it was like "Family Lite" All of the warm welcome, none of the drama. lol We enjoyed every area of this immaculately maintained and clean Inn from the patios to the living room where were exchanged some gifts we had brought for each other. It is so peaceful and gracious without feeling stuffy or contrived. I don't know how they do it but KEEP DOING IT PLEASE!
Already planning trip three. We have to see the next chapter of "Steve Decorates The Inn! We plan to make this a frequent get away! Awesome location - everything at your fingertips. Thanks for making Rohobeth SO much more than just a nice beach to visit!
