One of Delaware’s best-kept secrets is the Blue Hen B&B, nestled along Nottingham Road in Newark. Originally built in 1692, the Blue Hen is considered to be one of the oldest homes in the state.

Once part of a 255-acre farm, the B&B now includes 2 acres of beautifully-maintained property. Located a mile and a half from the hip and bustling Main Street of Newark, the Blue Hen is a haven of quiet charm.

Offering three guestrooms, each with its own private bath, the B&B is run by innkeepers Amy and Don Eschenbrenner. Amy, a Delaware native, is a wealth of information on local attractions and history, while Don – who works as an engineer – also teaches art lessons in landscape oil painting on the property.

A pet-friendly bed and breakfast, the Blue Hen includes a doggie room for furry friends, and a large fenced-in yard in which the canine guests can run to their hearts’ content. Animal lovers appreciate the hospitality extended to pets, a unique feature of the Blue Hen B&B.

Weekday breakfasts, prepared by Amy, offer home-baked breads, scones, muffins, granola, and fruit. Weekends are covered by Don, who whips up delicious international offerings. A plethora of restaurants for dinner and lunch are nearby.
