Cozy Places To Stay in Delaware this Winter
Upon stepping outside, you realize you can see your breath. The air feels cold against your skin, and you can’t wait to find somewhere to warm up.
Only the coziest of hotels and B&Bs will do for the perfect Delaware winter getaway. Whether you prefer reading by the fire or spending the day out and about before retreating to your home-away-from-home, there is a place for you to keep warm this winter.
Hotel Du Pont :
The Hotel Du Pont in Wilmington will fill you with warmth as soon as you step through its doors and into its gilded, richly appointed interior. Between gingerbread house decorating parties, holiday afternoon tea and brunch with Santa, there are plenty of cozy winter festivities to enjoy at Hotel Du Pont. Afterwards, relax at the intimate hotel bar before indulging yourself at the hotel’s regal restaurant, Le Cavalier, or head out on the town for an evening performance at the Playhouse on Rodney Square or the Grand Opera House.
Inn at Montchanin :
For a scenic stay, try the Inn at Montchanin, likened to a cozy village with its private cottages and picturesque grounds. Enjoy fresh locally sourced dining at Krazy Kat’s, and unwind at the in-house spa. With only a short drive, you’ll be able to experience the splendor of Delaware’s majestic estates, including the festive Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library.
Bellmoor Inn & Spa :
Colder weather brings a cozier sort of charm to the Delaware beaches. Hotels like the Bellmoor Inn & Spa embrace the plush life 365 days a year. Considered the best-designed hotel in Delaware, Bellmoor is but steps away from the great shopping, dining and nightlife of Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk. At the end of the day, you can curl up by the fireplace and read a book from the inn’s library or spend some time at the spa. Regal touches abound including beds topped with plump pillows, a richly decorated sitting area, and even marble-tiled bathrooms with hydrotherapy tubs.
Homestead B&B :
Just around the corner, you’ll find where “country chic meets the beach” at the Homestead B&B at Rehoboth Beach, a smartly decorated and thoroughly pet-friendly destination known for its friendly ways and themed bedrooms: Check out The Sunflower Room, with a vaulted ceiling, colorful decorations and plenty of room to stretch out, or rent the inn’s spacious cottage with a private backyard.
Causey Mansion B&B :
In Central Delaware, that homestyle charm comes with an air of refinement at the Causey Mansion Bed & Breakfast in Milford. Constructed in 1763, featuring period lighting, décor and a widow’s walk, this B&B is within walking distance of downtown for dining or Milford’s Holiday Stroll event.
Killens Pond :
If nature is calling to you, and you're in need of an escape, the Delaware State Parks offer cabin rentals. Killens Pond Sate Park offers cabin rentals for each season, allowing guests to experience the wintery beauty of the state park. Explore frosted grounds on foot or view them from inside a heated cabin while sipping on a warm beverage.
After a chilly day of festivities, there is nothing like winding down at a hotel, inn or cabin that feels like home. Choose the perfect accommodation for your winter travels to enjoy all things cozy.
