Romance/Getaway Series - The Addy Sea B & B

Are you looking to getaway and leave behind all your responsibilities and worries? Are you searching for the perfect location for your beach wedding? Away from the hustle and bustle of highways and crowds you will find this charming bed and breakfast waiting to invite you in for a relaxing stay, terrific service, and delicious food. The Addy Sea B&B is located in Bethany Beach, DE and it's right on the beach.

About the history of The Adde Sea (from their website):
John M. Addy, one of Bethany's original settlers, built the Addy Sea for his family in 1902. The Family began renting it to church groups during the Depression. It changed hands in the 70's and the Gravattes who have been welcoming guests for 25 years, continue to operate the Addy Sea as a bed and breakfast inn.

About the Inn (from their website):
The Addy Sea has 13 guestrooms (room 9 pictured below) and accommodates 37 comfortably. Building restoration has been done, taking great care to remain true to tradition and the dignity of this elegant Victorian lady. Guests can step off the veranda onto the beach, then retreat to the rocking chairs in the afternoon to enjoy the shade and sea breeze. Enter the parlor and step into another era, under the Victorian chandelier, and enjoy afternoon tea or lemonade along with some of our baked delicacies. After a relaxing day by the ocean, a walk in the sand and on the boardwalk, it is time to rest in our magnificent beds designed for your utmost comfort. Rest and relaxation are the keywords at the Addy Sea, come and see for yourself.

The Addy Sea's website is very useful for finding out information on this B&B, or for hand picking a room to visit, as the website includes 360 degree views of all 13 guest rooms, which I think is a great feature to have. Guests will know in advance what their room looks like, and what features it has.

Here is a 360 degree view of a few guest rooms:

Room 9
Room 11

All of their rooms are beautifully decorated - check them out for yourself!

The decor of the Addy Sea B&B is beautiful and very inviting, but that is not all that is fantastic about this B&B. Guests don't have to worry about lugging beach chairs and towels from home, as they are provided for all guests to use during their stay. Guests also don't have to rush to town in the morning for breakfast, as breakfast is served at this B&B. The two meals we had the pleasure to enjoy were delicious, with much to choose from. The first day they offered stuffed french toast, eggs and sausage, as well as toasts/bagels/muffins/cereal and fresh fruits. Their fresh raspberry muffins were my favorite, hands down! On the second morning we had apple french toast, cheesy eggs, potatoes along with fresh fruits, muffins/breads/bagels. Every morning guests have the option to eat in the dining room, on the veranda (or beach if you wish) or in the comfort of your room. It's nice to have options!

Another wonderful thing about this B&B that you are sure to love although it isn’t far from town it’s the perfect location, being a handful of blocks away from shopping, restaurants and entertainment allows for a quiet and peaceful stay if you are looking to relax and unwind during your stay. This location also allows for its guests to walk into town whenever they want a bite to eat, souvenirs to be bought, or nightlife to be enjoyed. The town offers as little or as much entertainment as you would like.

...and there's more... In the summer months guests of the Addy Sea B&B also enjoy FREE lunch consisting of a sandwich, drink and chips. Can you imagine? You wake up, enjoy a home-made breakfast, then wander over to the beach for a few hours, and return to grab lunch then it's right back to the beach. No need to clean off and shower to go into town to grab a bite. It's all right here at the Addy Sea! They also offer afternoon tea with freshly baked goodies, and wine and cheese in the summer months.

Now for those of you who are considering an outdoor or beach front wedding, this may be of interest to you. The Addy Sea offers beach front wedding packages including Lodging, Full Catering, Flowers and Professional On-Site continuous Wedding Consultation, and the B&B is able to accommodate up to 80 people at a reception, which is a perfect size for friends and family to come and share in this special day! My husband and I had our wedding outdoors a few years ago, and we loved it! The sun was peaking through the clouds, the flower petals were falling off a nearby tree and the wind was gently blowing through our hair. If you are looking for a place to have a destination beach wedding then this is a wonderful place to consider! (Please call Maggie Verts, General Manager of the Addy Sea for more details and availability - 302-539-3707 or 800-418-6764)

Now you may be thinking, this place sounds great, but how much does it cost? You can stay at this beautiful B&B for anywhere from $75 to $375 a night. Considering all that you get with your stay, this is a great bargain!
