This was our first visit to a B&B. Very enjoyable. We stayed in rm #1, first floor, w private bath. Only 6 rooms, which i liked. When we "checked" in, there was free wine, beer, soda. As well as snacks. Breakfast was also free. Waffles, bagels, yogurt, cereal, and more. I believe they might have even made eggs if you...

My husband and I took a much-needed trip to the beach last week, and this was our first stay at Melissa's. It feels like a family beach house that is casual yet provides lots of amenities: beach chairs, umbrellas, towels (plus large tote bag to carry them and other beach stuff), coolers, free drinks (wine, beer, soda, water, coffee, tea,...

Everything about Melissa's is outstanding! I can't think of anything which could be added to make a more comfortable stay. The breakfasts are incredible! They're all gluten free and often include quiche and homemade blueberry muffins. I'm already looking forward to going back next year.

I have been staying here for 10 years now, and have never been anything but thrilled with every aspect of this B & B. At Melissa's is your mother's beach house if, that is, your mother anticipated your every need. And if your Mom provided luxury linens and up-to-minute bathrooms. Melissa is constantly updating and improving. For example, she recently...

We just spent the weekend At Melissa's B & B. Melissa is the perfect hostess, always making sure that everyone has a wonderful time. The house has the old world charm of a house that is over 100 years old but with all new bathrooms that are not only gorgeous but spacious as well. For breakfast, Melissa has a wonderful...

We had a lovely experience at Melissa's B&B over Easter weekend. Melissa is a superb host. She greeted us, showed us our beautiful room and took the time to point out her favorite places to eat since we were new to Rehoboth. We were lucky enough to stay in the Penthouse and boy was it spacious. I loved the neutral...

Just returned from my 5th trip at Melissa's and can't say enough great things about this B&B. Each year gets better! The house is clean and attractive and the outside is amazing with its large porch for hanging out. Melissa is an awesome person making sure you are happy and relaxed. When in Rehoboth no need to look any further!
