This was our second straight trip to Lewes, and the second time that we chose our accommodations to be at the Blue water House. We are not just creatures of habit, but we like to think of ourselves as discriminating creatures of habit. The Blue Water House is consistently wonderful, not only because it comes along with blue skies, but...

Excellent, comfortable Bed and Breakfast in Lewes, with about a 5 minute walk to the beach (along the Delaware Bay, not the Atlantic Ocean proper). Rick is very friendly, personable, and helpful, and the rooms are great. Lots of nice touches. My wife and I have been there three times and it keeps getting better. Strongly recommend.
