11/5/14: Enjoyed our dinner experience at Brick so much, decided to take our vows here in 2015. The atmosphere, food, and staff were all exceptional! Bravo! - Je'nette and Randy, PA
10/5/13: Thank you for a fantastic stay. I was in Georgetown for the annual airshow and fly in. The Brick turned out to be the center of some of the activity before and after the show with a lot of participants staying there as guests. The entire experience was fantastic and the whole staff at the Brick went out of their way to make it an unforgettable stay. Great job and hope to see you next time. - Dane, Washington, DC
8/4/13: Dear Lynn & Ed, Thank you for a wonderful stay at The Brick House Hotel. Your establishment is an absolutely charming place that emphasizes unconditional hospitality and meticulous attention to detail. As the proprietor's, I noticed you are charismatic and take great pride in in your establishment, which allows guests to have countless positive experiences. The staff is warm, and diligent, which enriches, and supports, your mission. All of this was dually noted during our stay and we were overwhelmed with joy and will embrace great memories. Our only regret is having to depart, but we know in our near travels we will return. What a GEM! In addition, I want to thank Lisa for being a great bartender and for making our stay extra special as well. I wish all of you the best!! - Cordially, Charlie & Bree , Baltimore, MD
Lynn & Ed are the best hosts I've ever met at any Inn or B&B. They made us feel so welcomed, like we were old buddies. Brought my friends down this year to let them experience the wonderful time we had here. Dinner was great as was the wine pairing. Garth & Lisa are fantastic. Funny thing happened in Tinker Hall 4 last time but even stranger in Tinker Hall 3 this time. Found out Garth and I shared a kindred "spirit" in 3. Can't wait to come back next year! - Rose, South Plainfield, NJ
2/7/13:We stopped here for lunch, and were greatly impressed with the renovation of this 1836 building. A printed history is available for the asking.
Upon arrival, we were quickly seated, and wait staff immediately welcomed us, despite a sizable meeting-gathering in another dining area. The daily specials were described, with my wife selecting one of the specials, while I selected a menu item. Drinks were brought in a timely manner.
The lunch items were quickly brought, and the food, while not nouveau or gourmet, was well prepared and presented, of generous portion and very tasty.
Then the bill came. $25.00 for two lunch entrees and two drinks. It doesn't get any more reasonable than that. Certainly you won't find better food, service or ambience. - Trip Advisor Review from kjosker, Lewes, Delaware
1/11/13: We finally made it to dinner at the “brick”. It was wonderful. It has been several years since we were last there and what you have done is fantastic. We brought some close friends with us for dinner tonight and had the most delicious meal and service we have experienced in a long time. Our waitress “Joe from Brooklyn” was a stitch and took care of us like family. The entertainment provided by Isabelle from “Chile” was perfect for our meal.
We were offered and took advantage of a tour of the hotel by Tom, who is an absolute historian of the hotel, we will be back for dinner if not an overnight, just to hear the ghosts, and enjoy another dinner. Thanks again - Dale, Milton/Annapolis
9/9/12: Bob and I both enjoyed our visit with you at the Brick and the Town of Georgetown. We have been telling everyone how wonderful our stay was. I don't get Bob to travel often and the Brick made all the difference. He loved the second story porch as I did. He felt at home and said he would like to come again. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. - Bob & Sandy, Vienna NJ
8/26/12 Diane and I sincerely enjoyed our stay and have already told all our neighbors about it. Thank you for your hospitality. You and Ed have a real treasure. - Kevin & Diane, Eldersburg, MD
7/24/12: My husband and I wanted an overnight spot on our way to visit relatives. We were looking for something a little more personal than a chain hotel, but less expensive than a B & B since we weren't going to be in the area very long. What a treasure we found in The Brick Hotel of Georgetown, DE. The inn is extremely clean, comfortable and very tastefully decorated. We both enjoyed the personal touches and friendly atmosphere. It is elegant, yet not stuffy. We loved the upstairs front porch and watching the activity in the town's circle while relaxing in rockers and catching a breeze. The next morning found us right back out there while having breakfast. Great scones by the way! Highly recommended. - Sue and Steve, Pennsylvania
7/18/12: We need to thank you! This was by far our most enjoyable stay anywhere in the past 27 years! We'll help you spread the word because what you're doing with the Brick Hotel is being done right! - Mary B, Elkton, MD
6/3/12: Lynn, I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at your hotel. It was absolutely beautiful and we felt very much at home. We loved the Vines room, the heated towel rack, our own private balcony, and the common areas. We just wanted to have a night away to relax and we were able to do just that! Thank you so much for providing us with such a wonderful place to stay and for giving us such a personalized experience. We will definitely come back again and will also recommend the Brick to all of our friends and family. - Lindsay, Floral Park, NY
8/9/11: Our recent stay at the Brick Hotel was wonderful. Since we learned about the place online and knew nothing else about it, it far exceeded our expectations. Our room was immaculate, the food was great, and the staff was super friendly and efficient. We were treated like family and felt right at home. This quaint, charming, privately-owned historic hotel is a refreshing alternative to the sterile big chain hotels. If you take a seat on the second-floor porch above the Circle and pretend that the cars are carriages, you can almost expect to see either Union or Confederate troops to come marching by at any moment. When we return to the Georgetown/Rehoboth area, we will certainly stay at the Brick again. (Just the blueberry scones at the complementary Continental breakfast are enough to bring me back!) This place is truly a gem. - Craig, New Paltz, NY
2/23/11: Lynn - I had a wonderful time at "The Brick" and particularly enjoyed the small things, such as the refreshments in the room, the breakfast with the delicious scones, the mixed fruit and the individual coffee servings. The mouthwash was an added treat! The personal care, attention to detail and the comfort of the room certainly enhanced my stay in Georgetown. I don't know whether I will ever be back your way; if I am, I will make "The Brick" a certain stop. - GB, Virginia
6/6/10: Hi Lynn and Ed, I just wanted to thank you and your staff for your hospitality a few weekends ago. My boyfriend, I and another couple stayed with you the Saturday night of Memorial Weekend, and you definitely made our trip up from D.C. worth it. We were looking for a short get-away, and we got it!
We hope to stay there again, so please keep up the great work, and have a wonderful summer. Many thanks! - Jenn, Washington, DC
5/17/10: Lynn and staff of The Brick Hotel, My husband and I wanted to thank you. Our stay was fabulous. We stayed at The Brick because it was recommended by the staff at Dover Downs.We had come down for race weekend and your hotel was the closest available. I must say I was truly impressed, My husband and I are talking about coming down every now and then for "get-a-away" weekends because your hotel was that enjoyable. Even though our stay this time was only overnight, you can look forward to us spending long weekends with you in the future. Thank you again! - Heather and Lee, Conshohocken, PA
1/10/10: Ed and Lynn, I want to tell you that I ate dinner at the hotel on Wednesday, January 6th [at the Sussex County Association of Towns Meeting ] and had one of the best meals that I have ever had. Everything from the salad to dessert was excellent. I've had lunch at the hotel a few times and it has always been very good but I'm still telling people about my dinner. Also, you did a great job hiring your staff, they provide 1st class service (and to me that's almost as important as the food).
Again, thanks for saving the great Brick Hotel, it's a real asset to the town of Georgetown. - Bob Bryan, Millsboro
10/5/09: Lynn (and Ed) - What a wonderful weekend I had. "The Mayor's Manor" was just perfect for my stay - comfortable, quaint - it's my absolute favorite room! Your warm welcome was truly appreciated. Rocking on the front balcony with a good book and overlooking the circle, well it was just awesome. You've done an amazing job. It felt more like a home than a hotel. I will be back!Thanks again! - Susie, Wilmington, DE
8/28/09: We had such a nice time at The Brick in your Calvert room that I wanted to write a note of thanks from Mary and me. Our room was wonderful and we really enjoyed dinner in your restaurant. The whole experience was great and even with a downpour of rain nothing spoiled our time at the hotel. We are hopeful to get back to see you, even as early as next month but no way to plan that now . Have a wonderful balance of summer and know that you have a warm place in our memories of a vacation that was just perfect. - Tom & Mary, Drexel Hill, PA
8/1/09: My husband and I every year try to find a place that will allow a 1 night reservation, close enough to the shore, always with no luck. This year we found this "diamond" in Georgetown. Close enough, but yet far from the crowded shore area. We thoroughly enjoyed our night here. The room was fantastic as well as the Restaurant where we decided to eat dinner. Thank you to ,you L,ynn for making us feel so welcome and to Peter who works with you. We are definitely planning on coming back in the fall to celebrate our 29th Wedding Anniversary. Thank you again. - Kathy and Greg, West Chester
PA7/31/09: My wife just had a special birthday (won't say which one)and I wanted to celebrate it in a special way. We have been wanting to come in to the restaurant, so I made reservations for 10 with Joe and we enjoyed the evening very much. It's nice to know Georgetown has a great place to dine and relax. The meal and service were excellent. We will spread the word and will be back again! - The Perdues, Georgetown
7/23/09: Dear Lynn: I have not stopped talking about the wonderful days we spent at the Brick Hotel. I can't wait for another baseball tournament. I will be sure to call you for our reservations. I am still thinking of the cozy bed,warm towels,and those delicious pastries.Thank you Lynn. - Yours truly, Marysela and Family, North Bergen, NJ
7/20/09: Dear Lynn, We just want to tell you that our recent stay with you at The Brick was absolutely delightful! From the first telephone reservation to our goodbyes at the door, everything met or surpassed our expectations. From the cheerful welcome by Ed , the tasty wine pairings and fine cuisine by Joey, the friendly conversation of Jeff, your expert mixologist and bartender, the relaxing comfort of your nicely appointed rooms, to the wonderful charm of your historic inn - all simply wonderful. And, of course, your own special hostess style that will keep The Brick first in our minds on our future trips to the area. Thank you! - John and Terrie, Barnaget, NJ
7/20/09: My wife and I stayed at The Brick Hotel this past weekend and had a truly delightful time. Lynn and Ed treat the guests like old friends. The rooms and the restaurant were wonderful. My wife and I were commenting that just staying at "The Brick" was a vacation in itself. - Larry & Mary, Falls Church, VA
6/26/09: I'm back home now, but thinking back on my visit to Georgetown to visit my cousins, and my stay at the Brick Hotel. SO delightful! I felt like I was stepping back in time, with all the modern amenities! Lynn has done a superb job of renovating the building, combining the old with the new, providing everything you could wish -- including an elegant restaurant with delicious food! Thank you, Lynn, for your meticulous care of your guests and your warm hospitality. I'll be back for our next "cousins" vacation! -Judy DeVivo, Illinois
3/9/09: On May 3, 2009, my brothers and I held an 80th birthday party for both of our parents. None of us live in Georgetown, Delaware. I found the Brick Hotel on TripAdvisor.com...and am thrilled with my find ... Every person I came in contact with listened carefully to our needs and responded in kind. Lynn, the owner, offered housing for those coming in from out of town. All of us live within around 2 hours and opted out. After touring the guest rooms, I am looking forward to a romantic overnight with my husband...this would also be a great place for a family reunion. The prices for the elegant, spacious rooms were more than reasonable as they were for the spectacular brunch....In terms of the 80 year olds, the hotel and restaurant follow the Americans with Disabilities Act...Our Dad, who rides a scooter ... was free to move about the first floor and greet his guests in every nook and cranny in this fabulously sophisticated and warm environment.
We planned this entire day over the telephone. There was ALWAYS a real person to answer the telephone. We also worked out the details of the menu via email. We have a son who is fatally allergy to all nuts and nut products. The chef provided a delicious brunch buffet that was safe for our son to eat... We were all so thrilled that he could eat freshly made scones, turnovers and the birthday cakes...
We travel and dine in many wonderful restaurants. I have become rather spoiled and appreciate good food. I am not a writer and will never do the menu justice. We had an omelet station that everyone raved about. We had bagels and what tasted like home-made whipped cream cheese and fabulous mushroom strata. The chef offered a yummy, creamy asparagus soup....Sandwiches? You say. Chef Joseph has a talent for pairing foods that one would not ordinarily think. As I said, I would not do the description justice. - Arlynne Brown, NJ
Would love to say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 'The Brick Hotel" during the Easter holidays in April this year. The staff were very hospitable and welcoming from the point of entering the front door to our departure!!!! The decor was very impressive and comfortable. Thank you so much for the details you gave us on departure. The Longwood Park was very interesting although we could have done with more hours. We really enjoyed our holiday in America and find the locals very friendly.
We wish you all the very best of success in your venture in the years to come. - David & Pana, Derbyshire UK
We had a wonderful, relaxing meal with friends at the Tavern on the Circle. The food was exquisite, the service was wonderful, and the ambiance was the best in Sussex County. Thanks to Ed, Lynn, Jessica and Chef Joseph for an amazing evening. - Susan & Ernie Messick, Seaford
