“Most Comfortable Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

My husband and I have been to various B&B's around the country, but the Lighthouse Inn beats all for comfort. The owners seem to have a sixth sense of what you need and when you need it, including privacy. While the house and food could be fancier, that would take away from the Lighthouse's charm. Its superb location puts everything at your fingertips. Bravo!

We were looking for a quiet escape after our wedding last week and found it at the Lighthouse Inn. Jerry and Matt are wonderful hosts. We were there during the off-season, so Rehoboth was eerily quiet. The location is excellent as you are walking distance to everything you need. We enjoyed a leisurely continental breakfast on Saturday and Jerry's Hawaiian french toast Sunday in the large sun room. The cordials and chocolates waiting for us in our room after dinner was a nice way for us to quietly enjoy our final evening.

Room Tip: Key West room has an ocean view and a little bistro set to enjoy a cocktail. Fun decor. Also a littl...

Perfect location, warm hosts, delicious breakfasts, beautiful rooms, and the beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas are provided for you. This place has it all! As an example of the outstanding service, I asked Jerry where we could buy sunscreen. He stepped into the next room and fetched me a bottle. And then there is the delightful liqueur and chocolates on the night before checkout. They also gave us great tips about eateries. Rehoboth is a very family-friendly place and this is a no-kids place, so it is a distinct niche. We love kids, but it is great to have a lovely romantic retreat at the end of the day.

A great B&B very close to the beach, as well as all of the Rehoboth restaurants and shops. The rooms were spotless and the breakfast was great.

It wasn't a problem for us, but a warning that the top floor rooms can only be reached via some very steep stairs. We were very glad that our 8 month pregnant friend didn't have to use them.

A great B&B with wonderful access to the beach, restaurants and nightlife. Everthing is within walking distance. Park your car when you arrive and leave it there. Jerry and Matt are gracious hosts and we enjoyed great breakfast food and were directed to some fine restaurants. The front porch is a very inviting place to have your morning coffee.

Room Tip: Try to secure the Key West Room if you can. Very spacious and private

Not only was this my first time to Rehoboth, it was also my first weekend away with my girlfriend. Matt and Jerry were so charming, and their B&B was really just perfect. Fantastic location, beautifully maintained (the pictures don't really do it justice), and overall just a wonderful experience. The crowning moment, though, was when we returned to our room the last evening to be greeted with music and delicious cordials in crystal in our room! You don't get that at the Hilton.

Bravo! Thanks for everything. We'll be back.

Beautiful accommodations, welcoming hosts, healthy breakfasts. Matt and Jerry guide you to the best restaurants and secrets in this charming resort town. Each room offers its own name and identity with the theme followed through the decorating and bed covers. Coffee, tea snacks available all day. A surprise beverage may delight you on your last evening.
