Everyone loves the beach, in-season or off-season, and there’s always a great time to be had. If you have a friend with a beach house, that’s great. If not, try a bed-and-breakfast. They are more intimate, less crowded, and more interesting than hotels.
Recently, we stumbled onto two B&Bs side by side and under the same ownership: Bewitched and BEDazzled. Bewitched is named for the iconic television series from the ‘60s and ‘70s. BEDazzled is named for the Golden Age of Hollywood, showcasing stars such as Bette Davis, Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart, and Judy Garland. Both properties are brimming with movie star memorabilia, including autographed photos and artifacts and exquisite antique furniture. Check out the website and select your favorite room.
Located in the heart of all the action in Rehoboth and just two blocks to the boardwalk and ocean, these B&Bs are the places to be. Bewitched and BEDazzled sit on a beautiful, quiet, tree-lined street that leads to the beach.
Elegance, delicious food, and romantic accommodations marry character, fun, and comfort. The inns even provide beach towels and chairs. Afterward, perhaps soak in the sunken hot tub, sunbathe on the massive deck, or enjoy the outdoor shower. Restaurants to suit every taste are all an easy stroll away.
With 20 years of innkeeping experience, Inez Conover and Sharon Marquart have it under perfect control. They are a great source for information on local restaurants, festivals, local shopping, and fine arts. The two B&Bs can accommodate quite a few people between them, perfect for large groups such as wedding parties. (Marquart has been an ordained minister for 25 years, so there’s a resident wedding officiant, too.)
The deck in back joins the two locations and can handle a breakfast outdoors for 30 people. And, more good news — there is parking in the back, too.
The B&Bs are both dog- and child-friendly, and are the only B&Bs in downtown Rehoboth Beach that accept dogs. Those who don’t love dogs are never bothered, because there is no doggy smell. Dogs must be bathed and groomed within seven days of arrival. During the stay, dog owners may use the dog tub for post beach clean-up for their pets.
The B&Bs’ elegance, quietude, charm, hospitality, comfort, and attention to detail have garnered awards and recognition from the Huffington Post, Delaware Today magazine, and Delaware Bride. The inns received a “Green Leader Gold Award” and the AAA “Three Diamond” award.
The innkeepers’ goal is to provide a serene, romantic, and fun year-round getaway for their guests. So, what are you waiting for? Check them out and book now.
