OVERVIEW of the Bellmoor Inn
There is something oddly romantic about a nearly deserted beach town in the winter. In season, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware is a bustling seaside resort overflowing with vacationers, but off-season, the pace slows and its real charm shows through. Casually browse the shops in town, stroll the isolated beach, enjoy a fireside drink…..just what you need to recharge the batteries.
The Bellmoor Inn is an exquisitely furnished and maintained Inn with immaculate grounds with mature plantings and brick and slate patios.
A waterfall adds a sense of tranquility and I could just imagine a summer day with the gardens all in bloom and a warm morning breeze off the ocean….what a way to start a day.
It is not easy to achieve elegance and comfort at the same time, but the public rooms here hit the mark. They are wonderfully decorated with stylish furniture, antiques, beautiful accessories and artwork and fresh flowers. The lobby, library, sun porch and game room are as nice to relax in as they are to look at.
THE ROOMS at the Bellmoor Inn
There are 78 total rooms including 21 suites and 1 cottage. Accommodations range from somewhat modest Garden Rooms at about 260 square feet to Deluxe Rooms at about 425 square feet to the sumptuous Bellmoor Club Suites at 700-1100 square feet. We stayed in the Dagsworthy, one of the Bellmoor Club Suites. At 710 square feet it was wonderfully spacious with a sitting area, a private balcony, fireplace, two person Jacuzzi and a web bar. The pillow top bed had a rattan style head and foot board, luxury linens and a down comforter and pillows. The marble bath had natural toiletries, plump towels and silky robes. Access to the Club level is by a private elevator and there is a beautiful library with a fireplace, lots of reading material and complimentary drinks and snacks.
DINING at the Bellmoor Inn
Breakfast is the only meal served at the Inn and it is provided by the popular local restaurant Porcini House. The delicious buffet includes fluffy scrambled eggs, smoked bacon, pancakes, oatmeal with vanilla and brown sugar, yogurt, fruit and pastries and muffins. On weekends a chef prepares omelets to order.
THE SERVICE at the Bellmoor Inn
The Inn provides a computer center for checking email, free wireless if your brought your laptop, a “Today” flyer with local events, 24 hour coffee and 4pm tea and cookies….all wonderful amenities, but it is the gracious and subtle level of service that makes this experience so enjoyable. The staff is pleasant and friendly and always willing to help. The on-site concierge, Drew, truly relished helping us decide where to have cocktails before dinner, where to eat and what to do after dinner.

WHAT OTHERS SAY About the Bellmoor Inn
-Member, Select Registry, Small Elegant Hotels.
“You’ll “feel like you aren’t anywhere near the sand” at this “surprisingly elegant” Rehoboth Beach B&B with “immaculate rooms”, including “top-shelf” suites on a child-free “private floor”; sybarites savor the “divine” massages while relaxing at its “upstairs pool” and “wonderful” spa, and surveyors unanimously swoon over the “delightful” complimentary breakfasts “overlooking the garden”; alas, there’s no full-service eatery, so for other meals, ask the “helpful” staff for nearby dining recommendations.” ZAGAT
