Quick Beach Trip

4.8 on September 07, 2017

We have stayed at the Homestead many times with our dog and it never disappoints. What makes the Homestead a winner is that it's clean, quiet, and dog-friendly, with warm, personal service. This time we were in the 1st floor garden room. We enjoyed the king size bed and direct access to the wraparound porch. Joe and David have done a nice job since our last stay upgrading the grounds, including adding a lovely gazebo to the dog run area. As always, we enjoy the central location, convenient to both dog friendly beaches in Lewes and Dewey, as well as to downtown Lewes and Rehoboth.


Stood for 5 nights ECB

Breakfast is just great. Inside eating a little small if everyone brings there dog to breakfast. Outside eating was my choice. I liked being able to eat outside at night when we brought back diner to the house. Love the room that gives you access to the outside without having to go thru the main house. Joe & David are real nice guys. They even set up a nice table for us each morning on the outside deck. Dog Run is really kept clean & my dog loved it.The grounds are kept well. I would say over-all for a B&B great place to stay.


An Enjoyable Place to Stay!

Joe and David are great hosts. I slept three nights in the Garden Room and it was perfect. The bed was comfortable, I had a "white noise" machine, a heating and cooling system I could operate, a TV and DVD player, and a beautiful bathroom with a big shower. The first night I arrived at the bed and breakfast, Joe sat down with me and asked me what I wanted to do during my vacation. He marked places on the map I might like, and he answered all my questions. He also walked me through the "Parking App" which was extremely helpful. If you have a well behaved dog, I highly recommend staying here. There is a dog run out back and towels and bowls for the dogs. I did not bring my dog, but I feel confident that if I had, she would have had an enjoyable stay. The breakfasts are fabulous! The first morning I had a country breakfast that consisted of eggs anyway I wanted them, sausage and potatoes. The second morning I was served some of the best french toast I have ever had. The third morning they served the country breakfast again. Delicious! There is is also, cereal and bagels, and hard boiled eggs and yogurt for you. Joe and David also make homemade jam! Things to note: 1. This bed and breakfast is on a busy traffic corner. I suggest wearing earplugs to bed. I wear ear plugs every night all year round to sleep, so it was no problem for me. However, if you're a light sleeper, I would use them if I were you. 2. The bed and breakfast is about three quick miles from the boardwalk and right around the corner from the Tangier outlets! You need a car to get around. Overall, it was comfortable, homey and extremely well maintained. I would stay here again.


Beautiful place

Beautiful b&b, gorgeous grounds, gracious hosts.


Bring the Dogs!

The Homestead owners Joe and Dave run a clean, well-appointed, dog-friendly B&B, with lovely landscaping, gardens, porches and gazebos! The carpeted steps to the second floor made for easy ascents and descents for our aging retriever. The Sunflower room was spacious and quiet, and breakfast was gourmet and delicious!


Perfect for pets and their parents!

5 on June 01, 2017

This was an absolutely delightful venue for us and our cairn terrier. The hosts, Joe and David were personable, helpful with info about the area and their breakfasts were to die for! The room was very comfortable, with access to both the sitting/breakfast room and a screened in porch for relaxing at either bistro tables or on sofa and chairs. A very special feature of the Homestead was the large fenced in dog walk area; not only were the dogs able to roam and play, but a gazebo provided comfortable seating for the pet parents. Despite less than perfect weather, we all had a wonderful time and look forward to returning to visit with Joe, David and their precious long-haired chihuahua, Teddy Bear!


No Pet? No Problem!

This B&B stands out with or without a four-legged travel companion. Joe and David were great hosts. Everything done first rate and with pride and a desire to please their guests who were all very happy with the different restaurant recommendations (Boardwalk Fair to Broadway Fare) for each of them from the night before. The building itself is a converted farmhouse at the crossroads to the beach on about 2 nicely manicured acres. Casual with Care and many different beachfront experiences a good bike ride or a short car ride away. You can borrow 'Mister Whiskers' or their little Yorkie if you are lonely for a lost pet. The innkeepers will leave you to yourself or share conversation... just let them know. Don't let the Doggy run, outside pet shower, pet library, pet treats and water bowls on the floor fool you. People or pets... all are welcome at the Homestead.


Perfect!

The Homestead is perfection in every way. The Cottage is lovely with a large backyard and lots of privacy. Dogs are very much welcome. Everything you could possibly need has been thought of. The hosts are wonderful and the breakfasts are amazing. We will be back next year!


1st Anniversary

5 on April 11, 2017

We rented the Cottage for our anniversary and it was wonderful. Joe and David were so hospitable and friendly. We brought our yorkie puppy and the whole place was heaven for him! He loved the fenced off pretty big personal back yard where we could let him run around without worrying and Joe and David were great with our puppy and even left our dog shampoo by the outside bath when we went to the beach. Breakfast was provided and was really gourmet and personally made on site. We had French Toast with orange zest and big omelettes plus they had tea and coffee (a bunch of options with a Keurig) and english muffins, bagels, and other standard stuff. They had games (board games + bocce and cornhole) and movies to pick up and the house itself was amazing. The main house was beautifully decorated and the Cottage was fantastic! A bedroom, big bathroom, surprisingly large kitchen, family room, and the big backyard with patio furniture and a BBQ and only 3 miles from the beach and boardwalk. We had a great time and would absolutely come back again!


Outstanding Stay

5 on April 07, 2017

Decided to treat my husband to a trip to Rehoboth Beach, DE and had the PLEASURE of staying for two nights at the Homestead at Rehoboth B & B. We met Joe upon our arrival who went out of his way to make us feel welcome. He took the time to share the "ins and outs" of the dining area, that coffee and tea were always available as well as water, and that we also had a library of movies to view if desired. Then we were shown our room...just beautiful and SPOTLESS. Everything that we needed was right there as well as a notebook with places to go and restaurants to try. We toured Rehoboth that afternoon and enjoyed an early dinner at the Purple Parrot (good pub food) returning to Homestead to enjoy coffee/tea on the covered porch. The next morning we enjoyed a truly outstanding breakfast served by the innkeepers, Joe and David. Our stay only got better and we applaud the efficiency under which this establishment is managed. One of the greatest compliments is to say, "We will be returning." and so we shall. Our sincere thank you to Joe and Dave for providing a delightful experience. The Kellys from PA
