We have stayed several times at the Virden House and have always enjoyed our time there. Jim & Ruth are very friendly and accommodating, and the three course breakfasts are the best B&B meals we have ever had. The house is lovely. We always stay in the Penrose room, which is furnished in tasteful Victorian style, and is spacious and comfortable. The house is located on a quiet part of Second Street, but is directly adjacent to the central shopping and dining section of town. This is the area where we prefer to be. It's a short drive or bike (bikes are provided) to the town beach on the mouth of the Delaware Bay, or a few miles to Cape Henlopen State Park for the ocean beach. The town beach is adjacent to lots of residential development, but has no restaurants or shops other than a Dairy Queen. We prefer to stay in town and drive to the beach. We love the Virden House, and recommend it. We have stayed at a half-dozen B&Bs in our travels, and this is the best by far

Jim and Ruth are such great innkeepers! We were made to feel like VERY SPECIAL people. The food and presentation was the best I have ever seen. They could not do enough for you and made you feel like you were part of their family! I loved my stay. Frank & Dee

We planned a much needed romantic getaway in the charming town of Lewes, DE and needed a place to stay. Initially I hoped to get a budget room in a plain motel but had the good fortune to find the John Penrose Virden House which was loaded with amenties and worth every penny. It is an amazing Victorian? home with all the glorious trimmings run by a warm well travelled couple who treats their guests like royalty. We stayed in the York Cottage. It was way better than home! We started off with flexible check in, inviting conversation, wine and appetizers in the late afternoon. Later we roamed the charming town center on the same blocks. When we returned from our evening out, our room had been prepped with a bottle of Port and fine European chocolates! The bed was very comfortable too. At breakfast time we were treated to a fabulous and customized breakfast (taking into acct our food allergies).Champagne mimosas, fresh ripe berry compotes, home baked banana bread, omelettes with fresh veggies, all included!!! I lacked nothing there and will definitely go back next time we are in the area. Thank you to Jim and Ruth who really excel in giving their guests a five star experience. If I could give it 6 stars I would. A must stay!!

My husband and I stayed at the John Penrose Virden House (Virden House for short) the weekend of 11/4-11/6/11. The experience was wonderful. The location of the Virden House is perfect for walking the quaint, historic town of Lewes, De. Restaurants, historic sites, and shops are all within walking distance of the Virden House, so, one does not have to worry about parking (parking area in back of B&B). The Edwards were gracious hosts that knew how to make a person feel at home. From the gourmet breakfasts to wine & nibbles in the early evening to port & chocolates later in the evening, the Edwards know what makes a stay memorable. Jim's knowledge of the restaurants in town along with Ruth's wonderful cooking help make our stay perfect. We stayed in York Cottage, an attached cottage that gave us privacy, sits amid a relaxing garden. Even in November, flowers were blooming. The room itself was decorated in such a way to make us feel very much at home. The Main House was built in 1888 and the Edwards have created a delightful Victorian experience with their decorating. There are two more rooms that are rented in the Main House which, if the York Cottage is any indication, are sure to be wonderful. Both my husband and I would highly recommend staying in Lewes at the John Penrose Virden House for a great experience.

We stayed in the Cottage, which has a private entrance through the garden. Spacious, quiet and relaxing. Hosts Ruth and Jim are friendly and accomodating. Walk to shops restaurants and beach. This is where we'll be staying the next time we're in Lewes.
