We had read many reviews and had high expectations. Normally we don't spend this much on accommodations but when we read how great this place was suppose to be we splurged. It was worth every penny. It's very welcoming the moment you walk in. Rooms are a nice size and have everything you need. The décor is fun and we...

Rick and Lola have provided a whimsical and relaxing atmosphere at the Blue Water House. You can't help but smile and feel pure joy in the collection of artwork and sayings. We were made to feel like special guests and care is given to be certain all needs are met. I give high marks for cleanliness but would suggest new...

Loved this place. After a hectic college delivery we knew we were on vacation as soon as we walked in the door. Colorful, unique, friendly, and restful. home-made breakfasts were terrific, afternoon wine and beer was much needed after a day of beach. Nearby Cape Henlopen State Park is one of the loveliest spots on the east coast.
