Amy and Don make you feel like family, only better, because nobody in my family can bake like Amy or cook breakfast like Don! Seriously, though-- the folks at the Blue Hen go out of their way for their guests every day, from the fully stocked guest fridge to homemade everything, to the thoughtfully arranged Canine Lounge. There's a lovely surprise around every corner: twinkling lights to guide you home at night, family antiques to marvel at, peach ice cream for breakfast, the offer of a to-go cup on your way out for the day. This is my second stay with them and I'm looking forward to many more.
