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...

My sister and I went on our annual trip to Rehoboth Beach and once again stayed in At Melissa's. It was fabulous. Melissa really goes out of her way to make sure that every guest is comfortable and has whatever he/she needs. She also makes wonderful restaurant recommendations. We could not have been more comfortable or pleased. And we've already...

This is our third visit over ~10 year period & it's always delightful. The breakfast has become even more bountiful, bikes are available...Melissa has thought of everything you need for a perfect beach week. She has lots of repeat guests who are (almost!) as charming & interesting as she is. We'll be back!!

This is a very comfortable place with a great host and pretty much everything you need. Just bring your bathing suit and clothes. Breakfast is delicious including waffles, fruits, yogurt, etc. You won't be hungry. Champagne and bloody Mary setups included. Only a available block from the beach. Melissa sent us in the right direction to get away from the...

There really is not much to add with so many wonderful reviews, but I thought it was worthwhile to note that we had a unique issue and Melissa was very understanding and accommodating. Also, she gave us free access to her kitchen and the backyard grill when we wanted to cook our own dinner one night. And, she hosted a...

My fiancée and I took advantage of the wonderful off season rates and left feeling like we would have paid much more for the experience. Melissa was a wonderful host with lots of local knowledge. We hit bad weather on our way into town which delayed our arrival until nearly 10pm. Melissa waited up for us to arrive and help...

My girlfriend and I spent a long Memorial Day weekend At Melissa's B&B. It was such a wonderful experience all around. My Girlfriend has a Glueten Allergy and the Glueten Free breakfast was what initially attracted me to book here. Melissa did not disappoint! The food was amazing everyday and ever thing put out for guests was Glueten Free. Melissa...

My fiance and I were in town for a wedding we were both in, and decided to stay somewhere besides the "hotels" downtown. Since I grew up visiting family in Rehoboth, the area was not new to me, and I had walked by At Melissa's many times. However, this was our first experience at a B & B and it...
