The inn is masterfully decorated to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The common rooms are in country colonial, with a cedar-beamed ceiling adorning an unique collection of straw baskets, dried flowers, and country herbs. Our carved birds and
antique crocks, combined with our artwork from Nantucket and curios from various trips abroad, will undoubtedly enchant and delight you.
For nearly 70 years the Delaware Inn has welcomed and delighted guests, making it one of the oldest, continuously operating bed and breakfasts in Rehoboth. Located one-and-a-half blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and from Rehoboth Avenue, the inn is just steps to the town's sandy white beaches and many fine restaurants, clubs, shops, and boutiques.
The Delaware Inn is thoughtfully decorated to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. While the common rooms are in quaint country colonial, each of our seven guest rooms has a different character. The majority of our room furnishings are authentic period pieces. Here is a brief description of each room:
The Colonial Room (semi-private bath) This charming room features a queen bed with country crocks, carved birds, and miniatures from Norman Rockwell's Stockbridge Village. It shares a bath with the Quilt Room.
The Quilt Room (semi-private bath) This large room has two twin beds or a king bed, and cable television. A highlight is the antique "Drunkard's Path" quilt that is displayed on the wall. The quilt was hand made in the 1880s. The room is decorated in country blues, pinks, and reds. It shares a bath with the Colonial Room.
The Santa Fe Room (semi-private bath) Tones of pink, yellow, green, and blue will delight and please your eyes. This queen bed room has many interesting accent pieces and fine art from the American Southwest.
The Victorian Room (private bath across hall) The room has a queen size bed and features fine antique furniture and furnishings from the Victorian Era, with a marble top dresser and matching side table and a ruby globe lamp. An antique "Log Cabin" quilt done in velvet and satin is on display. The quilt dates to the mid-1800s.
The Far East Room (private bath) This exotic room has a queen bed with furnishings and artwork from China, Japan, Thailand, and other far eastern countries. A highlight is a tulip screen done in gold leaf which we acquired on one of our trips overseas.
The Nantucket Room (semi-private bath) Two twin beds, that can easily be arranged to make a king size bed, share this light and airy room. The decor highlights the sea and coast with plenty of lighthouses, shells and nautical accents. It shares a bath with the Santa Fe Room. The Far Eastern and Nantucket Rooms can be arranged to form a suite with a private bath.
The Magnolia Room (private bath) The largest of the Inn's guest rooms, the Magnolia Room has two double beds and a love seat. Also featured in this room is an armoire, marble top table, and interesting art.
For your comfort, the inn has central air conditioning and heating. We also have off street parking. Whether you are celebrating your anniversary or birthday or just want to get away for the weekend, we are open year round to serve you. We are also available for family reunions, business meetings, weddings, and other group events. We can accommodate up to 20 people.
In the morning, a continental breakfast of juice, coffee, seasonal fruit, and fresh-baked bread and muffins is generously served on our large, screened, sun-filled porch. To make your day at the beach as pleasant as possible, we offer our guests beach chairs on a first come, first serve basis. We also have a boxed lunch service that is sure to delight your picnic palette. You'll have a choice of three different lunch menus to chose from. At 5:00, and upon your return from the beach, you'll be greeted with a wine & cheese social hour. It's a great way to relax with old friends and meet new ones. And don't worry about those dinner reservations... We'll make them for you!
