Glad to return to the Dolphin Den & enjoy yet another relaxing stay. Hosts Rick & Joe had my room was ready a few minutes earlier than I had requested as they new I was traveling in stormy weather. As before, Snickers was there to offer a warm greeting and let me play tug-of-war with his favorite rope toy as...

We have been going down to this lovely little spot on and off for the past 8 years. While just steps away from the beach and restaurants, it sits in a charming and quiet residential area. Rick and Joey go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The rooms are charming, cosy and well maintained while the garden...

Needed a good way to start the new year and relax. Staying here was just the right thing. Loved the decorations outside for holidays. Very dog friendly! Was very impressed. The dog park behind us was so convenient and we'll kept. Thank you guys for making us feel welcomed and completely comfortable.

We had a wonderful new year up here. Even when it's cold out and snowing they are one place to go to during the holidays. The decor alone is worth a walk down the dead end street it's located on. Even if you aren't thinking about dolphins in the winter, you will after staying here.👍🍷🐬🌈🐶🎩⛱❄️📸🍽🏳️‍🌈

From first meeting Snickers until I checked out, staying at the Dolphin Den was the perfect vacation. The Atlantic Dolphin Room was even nicer than advertised. Every special request I had was cheerfully granted and hosts Rick & Joe made sure the trip was a memorable one. The location is ideal - within walking distance to the beach as well...

This is our third return trip to the "Den" and we have two Boston terriers with us! We have been made to feel right at home and our babies, Barnacle and Tugger, love the brick lined park right through the woods behind us! Reasonable and spotless! Just don't rent our favorite room on thanksgiving!

I reviewed a couple years ago, but since me and my fiance's return this past weekend I had to review again. Owners Joe and Rick updated not only their home (which is attached to the inn itself, making them super available if need be), but also most of the rooms (which were already cozy to begin with). This time we...

If you are expecting expensive furniture, a gourmet breakfast, fancy linens, high end toiletries, you should probably choose a different property. At twice the price! BUT. For the best location, everything you need, parking mid town, nice owner, and an unbelievable price.....(I never start with price. it is about the overall value to me) and a lot of other features,...
