“Pretty Much Perfect at Rehoboth Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We decided to have a little get-away at Rehoboth and decided to stay at this B&B. The price was great. We stayed in the 'Key West Room' and although parts of the room were tight, our sleeping area was perfect and we had our own private shower/bath room. It's about half of a block to the boardwalk and ends at the big arcade and rides area of the boardwalk. Surprisingly, as close as we were to the kiddie adventures, it was quiet in our room at reasonable hours.

As an aside, we saw dolphins every time we went to the beach.

This B&B is perfectly located to not be bothered by the hoopla but close enough to a walk to the beach without any trouble. Breakfast is great, sleeping conditions are perfect, and the guys that run this place are very personable. It's also walking distance (blocks) from the best seafood restaurants in the area.

Bottom line: If you're going to Rehoboth Beach, stay here.

We cannot say enough good things about The Lighthouse B&B -- and we come back every summer at least twice! Here are top reasons it is so good!

1. Matt & Jerry are fantastic hosts. They are great guys -- welcoming and accomodating.

2. So close to the beach!

3. Great rooms!

4. Located in heart of Rehoboth with great proximity to excellent restaurants -- and a great workout facility a block away to work off those restaurant calories!

We hope to see you there -- join us for Labor Day!

Great place, location and initial welcome. Wonderful arrangement to park and even leave our bikes outside without worry about anything. Parked and walked everywhere. Being a caffeine hound, however, I was extremely disappointed with the offerings and with the timing of the breakfast on most mornings. Fortunately, there are many places just a short walk away with extremely good coffee, lattes, breakfast, etc. Arrived a couple minutes after breakfast and happy hour and was told I needed to learn how to be fashionably late..? Because of the dismal coffee situation, we were reluctant to partake of the special Sunday brunch, which we regretted.

Room Tip: The room in the top floor King size had a cute sitting area if one of you doesn't stay up late o...

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry you did not like our coffee. We will try harder next time. However, we are limited to space and that is why we provide a Kureg coffee maker 24-7.

We stayed from June 24-30, and every single day we were made to feel special! From the easy, effortless check-in to the checkout! Jerry and Matt were the most exceptional, caring, kind and genuine hosts we could've asked for! The small touches really made this place! We had "valet" parking (thanks Matt for always being willing to park our car!), mints from the local candy shop, the absolute BEST breakfasts ANYONE could ask for (fresh fruits, vegetables, homemade pastries, homemade banana jam every morning), wine and cheese on Saturday night, and chocolates and cordials on our last night! The Sunday brunch was absolutely to die for! They also have beach chairs and umbrellas for you to use, which we used almost everyday. The beach is LITERALLY a 1/2 block away from the inn. The location couldn't have been any better either! We were within walking distance of anything we wanted to do!! We really have not one bad thing to say about the stay, the hosts or our vacation here! You MUST stay here! It's incredible!!!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Egyptian room, and was pleased with the size of the room and private bath! With the...

Matt and Jerry are great hosts. The inn is near downtown while not being in the thick I'd things. The price is a little high for what it is (but we were here in busy season and the rates are comparable to the other places). It has a charm to it. If you are a couple in Rehoboth, this is a good choice.

I would come back again and again, which is my best endorsement. Fortunate that we were able to park directly outside the back door. Rooms were a little cramped, but there were 4 of us, including a 10 year old child...so that wasn't a problem and we adapted. Nice decorative touch. Short walk to the beach. Kudos for cleanliness, especially because of the nearby sand and beach.

We stayed here in Spring 2013, and would recommend it. The room (their "Diamond Head" room) was nice, and the breakfasts were nice, particularly the Sunday brunch. The owners were very helpful in recommending things to do in the area, restaurants, etc. And the location was great -- very close to the beach and close to the main street in town that it is a short walk to most things, but just far enough away from the main street to offer some amount of seclusion.
