I stayed in this bed and breakfast for one week. Do not stay in Milford if you are looking for an action packed city. It is the perfect place to stay if you want to be away from the city, but still within a 30 minute drive. I stayed in the room on the top floor with the huge bathroom where I enjoyed the deep claw foot tub. Soaking in a bubble bath is a perfect description to sum this hotel up. The owners cook a great breakfast every morning, which also includes amazing fresh fruit. The last thing that I experienced was the Freedom Festival in town. What a nice surprise it was. For a small town they sure did pack in a lot of great vendors, a farmers market, and a classic car show. All in all I had a terrific time here.

What a wonderful place to stay. We were lucky enough to have the whole house to ourselves for the night and also upgraded to tower room overlooking the front of the property. Dan told us with great enthusiasm about the history of the house going back to the civil war and before. We had a great nights sleep and the freshly cooked breakfast was terrific.

We stayed for one night and found the inn very clean and comfortable. The house was nicely appointed and the innkeeper pleasant and accommodating. The room was large with a private bathroom located down the hall. Other rooms had attached bathrooms. The breakfast was very good and the overall experience very positive. We will be back.

We spent two nights in the Tower room which was very nice. The house is beautiful with wonderful wood work throughout. The hosts, Dan and Rhonda, were very thoughtful and suggested points of interest in the area. They also gave great dinner recommendations. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would love to go back sometime.

This was an absolutely charming Victorian bed and breakfast with all the right touches. From the quaint laid back location in Milford, DE to the authentic Victorian home, to the gracious hostess Judy to the welcoming owners Dan and Rhonda, this was as close to perfect as one could ask for in a quick vacation getaway. We stayed in the Rapunzel room for three nights. The breakfast every morning was delicious and Judy was such a delight from the start - she even wished us a safe journey before we left home! If there was a rating above five stars, this place would definitely get it!
