We just returned from a fabulous stay at Bethel Bed and Breakfast! Lisa and Charlie are warm and friendly hosts, and certainly know how to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. We feel like we have made new friends! The accommodations are exceptional, and privacy is paramount in the design of the home and in their practices. Breakfast was bountiful and delicious! We also took advantage of the opportunity to take a ride on Captain Charlie's boat. Both Lisa and Charlie offered their in-depth knowledge of the river, the area and the wildlife as we enjoyed the ambiance of the river and the evening. We highly recommend Bethel Bed and Breakfast!

We had the pleasure of staying at the Bethel Bed and Breakfast this past weekend and cannot say enough good things about the lovely couple which own and run the B and B, as well as the accommodations! We booked our room a few weeks ago after deciding to participate in the Seagull Century, which is a 100 mile road bike event which begins and ends in Salisbury (about 25 minutes away). Luckily for us, they had an opening and we booked it. I wasn't able to find much online by way of reviews so we didn't really know what to expect. We were so happy when we got there and met Lisa, who is warm and sociable. We tucked in for the night and slept beautifully in the cozy, clean, comfortable bed. Several times on the ride the next day, I heard complaints of other poor souls who hadn't had the luxury of a great nights' sleep - was I ever thankful for our luck! Truth be told, about 80 miles into the ride I started thinking about that comfy bed again! In terms of accommodations: The home is a very nicely maintained historic home in a small village-like town of Bethel, an old sailing village. There is a mini-kitchen with teas, a coffee maker/Kuerig, and water bottles in the fridge. There are two nicely decorated bedrooms: ours had a view of the river, and the other was equally nice. As a bonus, Lisa and Charlie will set up the fire pit for you so at night you can sit out back by the river with a nice, crackling fire going. (We didn't get to do this because we were too tired but definitely plan on it for next time!) It took a bit, but I finally realized why I couldn't find any reviews - no one wants to give the secret away! Looking forward to returning again soon!

Imagine... Broad Creek River winding past the backyard, quiet streets perfect for a morning stroll or jog, breakfast to suit your travel plans, offered from 7 to 9am in a cozy Victorian dining room with lace table cloth, stylish linens, and an assortment of coffees and teas. In August we awakened daily to Lisa's fresh fruit compotes - watermelon and kiwi; canteloupe and blueberries; citrus mix -- all as delightful to the eye as they were to the appetite. And who can forget the waffles one day, the savory scrambled eggs the next, maple syrups and jams, and the pancakes on the last day so light and tender they all but floated off our plates. Bethel Bed and Breakfast is the perfect base of operations for day trips to Lewes, Cape May, Rehoboth Beach, Nanticoke, and a dozen enjoyable places in between. Lisa and Charles are the ideal hosts with a marvelous knack of wholeheartely welcoming you as members of their household while completely respecting your privacy and accomodating your schedule. Who could ask for more?
