We have been coming to this charming Inn for at least 20 years and are never disappointed. The staff has always been friendly and courteous, and makes each guest feel special. Your day will begin with a delicious and generous breakfast, beautifully presented. You may not even need lunch because at 3:00 pm they serve tea and cakes! This B&B...

This was our 3rd or 4th stay at the Addy Sea. You can read my original review or other reviews to get the basic info. For those that have stayed here before, the rooms now have keyless locks - solving one of the very few complaints people had and the wi-fi is updated and works just fine. Except for Tropical...

I almost hate to give The Addy Sea a wonderful review- it's a best kept secret. We love the place, right on the beach, great breakfasts and teas; friendly staff; walking distance to restaurants but away from the boardwalk- never been off season but people rave about it even in February.

Forgive me for not responding sooner. We are so happy to know of your positive experiences. The Addy Sea is indeed a year round escape from reality, especially during the winter when the crowds are gone and one is left with nothing but silence and tranquility.

We had a “fantastic” time experiencing our first Bed & Breakfast ever at The Addy Sea in Bethany Beach, Delaware! From arrival and check in Wednesday thru check out Friday, we could not have asked for more. We were greeted by a friendly staff member that escorted us to our room while explaining what they had to offer from air...

Our recent three-day stay at the ADDY SEA located on the beach in Bethany Beach, Delaware provided us with beautiful sunrises and moonlit ocean views. A warm and personable staff that acquaints its guests to the various amenities that the Inn has to offer runs the Inn established in the early 1900's. In addition to providing beach towels, beach chairs...

We just returned from our summer weekend stay at the Addy Sea B&B. The Victorian rooms are each unique and clean. Our room#3 had a jacuzzi which we didn't use and looked 'just OK' Breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed being able to take it outside on the beautiful wrap-around porch.

This is a nice B&B conveniently located right on the beach. It's an older home with all that entails but is wonderfully decorated in Victorian style with a lovely wrap around porch and lots of comfortable chairs. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of fresh fruit, eggs, bacon and other deliciously prepared foods. The rooms are very comfortable. I enjoyed the...

Thank you so much for your kind review, Janet. Ah yes, the parking situation. We do have 5 rooms that receive paid parking passes in the municipal lot since we have 13 rooms and only 8 reserved spots. The beauty of the daily passes, however, is that you can use them almost anywhere in Bethany Beach with a few exceptions....
