I travel quite a bit for work (average 3-4 months out of the year) and am used to hotels, motels, etc. When I planned a short vacation to Rehoboth Beach at a B&B, I wasn't sure what to expect or how it all worked at a B&B since I have only stayed in one my entire life and it was so many years ago, it was hard to remember what it was like.
I walked in and the decor took my breath away. I literally stood there staring and thinking that I just walked into the cover of an actual magazine. There was a delicious candle burning, a fire going (which was perfect on a cold, March day) and it felt like I was walking into a friend's home it was so inviting.
The room was perfect- it was brightly painted, with some of the most gorgeous decorative touches. There was a great use of space that allowed for plenty of room to move around. We had our own bathroom, the flat screen tvs on the wall were a great touch! There was a fridge in the room, which was wonderful since I always have leftovers or extra water that I like to keep cold.
The place was immaculate in terms of cleanliness and I am so used to cleaning everything with wipes wherever I go, it actually didn't occur to me-which never happens. The bedding was fresh, the mattress was soft without being too soft and the natural light was refreshing in the big windows.
The location is a block from the beach and in the heart of all of the major restaurants and shopping areas. There were some great parks, a tasty winery and outlet shopping a short drive away, but for the most part, we walked everywhere making the place seem so convenient and stress-free.
The breakfast was one of the best I've had -and I have had plenty of traveling breakfasts. It was truly homemade with care and touch of class I rarely see these days. There was a huge selection of food from bagels and croissants to fruit or oatmeal, yogurts, cereal and the hot breakfast items along with coffee brewed to perfection and a wide variety of juices and teas. The hot breakfast items were better than most items I've chosen off menus in some of the most expensive hotels - fresh ingredients make all the difference!
The customer service, though, is what made this entire trip seem like we were staying with friends. Tom and Steve, the innkeepers, were beyond gracious, friendly and welcoming. They also knew the places to see, restaurants to try (and those that shouldn't be tried), bars to visit and the best time of day for anything and everything in the area. It was better than any concierge service I've experienced to date and that's not an exaggeration.
We are already planning our next few stays this year and into next year with other friends and recommending this B&B to anyone and everyone! You will not be disappointed! I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to stay - and we had even extended our stay by a night because we didn't want to leave!
