At Melissa's B&B was the best place for a getaway for our wedding anniversary. The house felt like home, and Melissa was incredibly gracious, and funny! Cody worked nonstop to make sure that the place was in tip-top shape. They both provided my husband and me with tips on things to do in Rehoboth Beach as it was our first...

This was our first visit to At Melissa's after many years at another B&B which closed in January. We were thrilled by the attention to detail and many amenities Melissa offers, the bright airy rooms and the overall ambiance. We've already re-booked for next summer!

Some things you just know you will remember forever. Staying 'At Melissa's Bed and Breakfast,' from day one, was one of those time-altering memories in the making. My two sisters-in-law and I, the three of us all together for the first time in thirty years, had a fabulous four night reunion that mimicked the stuff of sitcoms: Lucy and Ethel...

I traveled with a friend, neither of us had been to Rehoboth Beach, nor stayed in a US B&B. We were pleasantly surprised by everything! The room was air conditioned, which was HUGE; even though it wasn't that hot, the humidity was brutal. and it was on when we go there :) The hostess greeted us after we parked in...

Another year, another wonderful experience. Actually, this year might have been the best yet! Melissa was outstanding and hosted a marvelous crab picking dinner while we were there. The food was fabulous and the beds outstanding. You are really missing out if you do not stay here! The innkeeper even consented to a photo!

This is our 21st season staying at Melissa's and it just keeps getting better! We have watched Melissa transform this charming house into a thriving bed and breakfast, while keeping the feeling of a well-loved, warm and inviting home. We have, over the years, stayed in almost every room, and have visited during every season! We have enjoyed the beach,...

I am extremely late writing this review but hope it will help this year's travelers. Last June, our daughter got married at Rehoboth Beach. We had stayed "At Melissa's" before and loved it! As soon as I knew the wedding dates, I asked Melissa to hold rooms for us. ( My dream was to take the whole house!) Throughout our...

My wife and I stayed here in April 2014 and 2015 and loved this place both times we were here. We like to go down in the off-season to avoid the crowds of beach-goers and tourists. The house is beautiful and well maintained. Melissa is a great host and her and her staff provide a wonderful breakfast. You are right...

I would have to say, this B&B tops them all. The residence sits about 2 blocks from the beach and probably has 15-20 fine dining experiences within 1/2 mile, so everything is in walking distance. The B&B itself was so customer oriented I was amazed. In addition to outstanding home cooked breakfasts, and available snacks, there was also wine and...
