Red rover, red rover, come on over to the pet-friendly shores of Rehoboth Beach. On Delaware’s coastline, you and your pets can take long walks through Cape Henlopen State Park, spend hours digging holes in the sand and watch sunrises or sunsets at dog-friendly restaurant patios. After an adventure-filled day, you can cuddle up in one of these comfortable pet-friendly hotels – bookable with Culture Trip.

1. The Breakers Hotel and Suites

Independent Hotel, Hotel

The Breakers Hotel and Suites will have both of your dogs pulling you in opposite directions. Fluffy will want to take the half-mile (1km) walk north to Lake Gerar Park, but Rufus will beg you to take a short trek east for frisbee catching on the beach. As your arms stretch to rein in both leashes, you’ll wish for rain so that the mutts can cuddle up in your double room while you spend a few uninterrupted hours at the indoor pool.

2. Canalside Inn

Canalside Inn takes the term “creature comforts” to a whole new level. You and Spot will roll up into a pet-friendly room already equipped with treats, a soft doggie towel and a duvet cover that hides those accidental stains. The hotel staff will hook you up with a leash and a few waste bags, making it easy for you to take your pup outside for a potty break day or night. Best of all, there’s a dedicated outdoor shower for dogs, so they’re free to frolic in the sand without bringing the beach back into your bed.

3. Homestead Bed and Breakfast at Rehoboth Beach

Dogs and cats alike will feel at home at Homestead Bed and Breakfast. A 3,500sqft (325sqm) fenced-in area offers your pooch plenty of space to run around. And for your feline? Absolute privacy in your guest room while you and your dog explore Rehoboth Beach’s favorite pet-friendly parks. You’ll also feel pretty content at this adults-only B&B, especially after a few glasses of wine on the wraparound screened-in porch.

5. Atlantic Oceanside Dewey Beach Resort

With low nightly pet rates and quiet hours enforced between 10pm and 8am, you, your cat and your dog will sleep like babies. You’ll sleep so well that you’ll skip the extra espresso shot at the Dawn Patrol Cafe in the lobby. Wake up relaxed, and spend a few minutes together on the sundeck before heading to the beach. Monday night movies and Wednesday night bonfires on the beach will make this stay with your pets especially memorable.

6. Residence Inn by Marriott Rehoboth Beach

Do you love going on runs with your dog? Then let Residence Inn show you the best running routes around Rehoboth Beach. All you have to do is download the hotel’s app and take your pick of the curated running routes. Prefer to blaze your own trail? We suggest taking your running buddy up to Cape Henlopen State Park or down to the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk for miles of on-leash exploration.

7. Holiday Inn Express and Suites Rehoboth Beach

Bring your pet along with you to the Holiday Inn Express and Suites without worrying. The pet-friendly rooms are only a few minutes from the beach and even closer to many other attractions. The Tanger Outlets Surfside, Midway Speedway Park and two golf courses are right outside your door, allowing you to check up on your snoozing shepherd easily. A dog walker, groomer and pet store are also within reach, ensuring that your pup has everything it needs.

8. Home2 Suites by Hilton Lewes Rehoboth Beach

This Home2 Suites by Hilton in Lewes is in a great location to sniff out a few exceptional pet-friendly spaces around the Delaware coast. You can quickly hop in the car and hit Lewes Beach or Gordons Pond Trail. If you’ve got your bicycle in tow, go for a long ride and run together along the Lewes-Georgetown Trail. The Seaside Pet Salon & Spa is next door to the hotel, allowing you to pamper your pooch while doing a little relaxation yourself at the indoor pool.
