Let me start by saying, this is one of the most beautiful and romantic places we've ever had the opportunity to experience. You truly feel as if you are in your own little oasis...thanks to the welcoming staff that's always trying to make your stay as special as possible. If you are lucky enough to book room 10 you will...

We just returned from our summer weekend stay at the Addy Sea B&B. The Victorian rooms are each unique and clean. Our room#3 had a jacuzzi which we didn't use and looked 'just OK' Breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed being able to take it outside on the beautiful wrap-around porch. We enjoyed the Saturday afternoon cheese & wine...

This is a nice B&B conveniently located right on the beach. It's an older home with all that entails but is wonderfully decorated in Victorian style with a lovely wrap around porch and lots of comfortable chairs. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of fresh fruit, eggs, bacon and other deliciously prepared foods. The rooms are very comfortable. I enjoyed the...

Thank you so much for your kind review, Janet. Ah yes, the parking situation. We do have 5 rooms that receive paid parking passes in the municipal lot since we have 13 rooms and only 8 reserved spots. The beauty of the daily passes, however, is that you can use them almost anywhere in Bethany Beach with a few exceptions....

My fourth time to the Addy Sea but possibly the last. The porch and setting remain lovely, the breakfasts wonderful and the staff as helpful as they could be. Complimentary refrigerated beverages were provided. Still charming but at $350 + a night, I was surprised that the mattress was so old, it was sunken, the bedspread and shams soiled, and...

This charming B & B in Bethany Beach is perched right on the ocean. It should have been better than it was. Monday and Tuesday are best for breakfast when Peggy is making magic things happen in the kitchen and Donna is at the desk. We had contracted for a room that was the favorite of other regular guests. Both...

Hi again Cheryl I just read your listing on Trip Advisor. Thank you for your kind comment about Peg and Donna. They are very special ladies and quite an asset to our operation.

Our bed squeaked every time we moved. The jacuzzi tub had black mold and everything felt so dirty. I would never recommend this place. We never received a tea service because " The hotel was at full capacity" , if you say that is an amenity you provide you should have it. They only offered us clean towels once and...

Supposedly a romantic victorian b and b. Decor is dated furniture from the 1980's - not antique. Rooms are odd - sinks in the bedroom. No elevator, no porter/bell hop, no phones, no televisions. There is a municipal parking lot right next to the inn, so you have a nice view of that and the accompanying noise. The staff is...

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. I'm so sorry that your experience was not as expected. We are extremely proud that we offer our Inn as a respite from the stress of every day life. With that in mind, we feel the absence of TVs, phones and the fact that all of our guests are over 21 years...

This is the second time we've stayed here. It's absolutely lovely. Truly a Victorian style inn. Each room is different. We booked room 10 this year for a panoramic view of the ocean. Breakfasts are delicious and the afternoon sweets are irresistible. We have already reserved for next year.

My boyfriend and I had one, lovely night at this charming B&B. The house is beautiful and feels like a slice of days gone by - and you can't beat the view! The buffet was very simple but delicious. Our Jacuzzi tub and bathroom weren't exactly spotless, but in line for what you'd expect from a beach-front inn. Can't wait...

Although the Addy Sea is absolutely beautiful and the beachfront location stunning, it lacked personality and warmth. Arriving around 5pm on Friday we were considered "late arrivals" and were greeted with a note with instructions to our room and security codes. Did not see owners or staff until 9 am when breakfast was announced. The home itself was very warm...

Thank you for your review after your stay last March. I remember you and the laughs we had over the tub situation. We all know there are no ghosts (we DO know that don't we???), it still makes for interesting and lively conversations. I'm so sorry you felt the late arrival letter was impersonal.
