A Hidden Gem in Odessa, DE
The Miller-Dunham House Bed & Breakfast is a colonial style home located at 207 High Street, right in the heart of charming Historic Odessa, Delaware. Wilmington, Newark and Dover Delaware are all an easy 20 minute drive away, and within 60-90 minutes you can drive to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, DC or any of the famed Delaware Beaches.
Whether you're here for business or pleasure, enjoy the unique rural, small town feel of Historic Odessa, and big city conveniences within reach. Take advantage of our relaxed atmosphere and beautiful grounds for your next business meeting or social event.
In 1950, the Millers (pictured below left) moved to in Odessa, DE. to the big brick house on High Street. 26 years later, the Dunhams (pictured below right) moved to Odessa and built 207 High Street for their retirement home. In order to accommodate a private mother-in-law apartment the house was built with two front doors.
Fast-forward to 2017, the second generation of Odessa Millers purchased the Dunham house and transformed 207 High Street into a four bedroom en suite Bed & Breakfast. The first floor mother-in-law apartment has become the Innkeeper residence.
The Bed & Breakfast sits on 3 acres of wooded and open fertile Delaware land. Especially interesting are the unusual trees, shrubs and gardens originally planted by the Dunhams.
The Millers and Dunhams have many shared life experiences including their joy of gardening, they also enriched their community by donating their time and talents in many capacities.
Meet the Innkeepers
As Maya Angelou said: “At the end of the day people won’t remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel.”
At the Miller-Dunham House we will always make you feel like family. We have an extensive
background in hospitality along with the added bonus of degrees in culinary, accounting, golf, and
horticulture/turfgrass, Jeff and I bring a myriad of knowledge and experience to running the Inn.
Our favorite meal of the day is breakfast, and we will delight you with our culinary creations, including freshly baked pastries, seasonal fruit from local farms and a specialty coffee blend from a Delaware roastery.
Linda and I enjoy being partners not only in life, but also at work. Our skill sets complement each other well and we truly love what we do.
Having come from very small towns ourselves, we both enjoy the quaintness of Historic Odessa and the friendly environment. We look forward to welcoming you. Hope to meet you soon.
