The Miller-Dunham House is a colonial style home near the heart of the historic town of Odessa, Delaware. Odessa offers a unique rural small town feel and big city conveniences within reach.
There are many historic landmarks to be seen in Odessa and with many cities being so close by it's easy to make a day trip out and be back in time for the night snack.
Welcome to the Miller-Dunham House
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. The Dunham's built the now, Miller-Dunham House in 1976 but these two families have been located in Odessa since the 1950's. The next generation of Millers and Dunhams have come together once again to bring The Miller-Dunham House Bed & Breakfast to Odessa.
"We, as our parents, truly love this quaint historic town, its friendly people, the birds, fish, water fowl, surrounding marsh and fertile farm lands of the Delmarva peninsula. It is our hope that you too will grow to love this very special place with all it has to offer."

What Our Guests Are Saying
Review from Jun 30, 2022
Four of us (two couples) stayed here for two nights. What a splendid experience! The hosts are friendly and accommodating, but not at all intrusive. Bob's substantial, delectable, relatively healthful breakfasts (homemade English muffins! perfectly poached eggs! fresh fruit starters!) will fill you up for the day. Debi's attention to detail ensures that your room will be immaculate. The yard provides relaxing greenery, colorful flowers, and lots of birds. You can watch all of it from the sun porch, or you can stroll out there and make yourself a part of it. And beyond the yard is a woodsy trail that seems miles from the highway that runs through Odessa. This B&B is a perfect place to get off the road for a couple of peaceful nights or to use as a retreat as you explore the many sites and attractions in every direction. A great place for a girls' weekend escape. Highly recommended.
"Thanks so much for your hospitality! Everything was wonderful – food, bed, shower and your company."
"What a magnificent stay! Such a hidden gem in Odessa. Your hospitality is second to none. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and at home. One can only fall into a relaxed lifestyle here. This is a location for lovers, dreamers, adventurers, travelers and anyone in between. This property is not just a place to stay, but an experience. Every bit of love and care is appreciated."
Perfection in an inn
We recently had a wonderful overnight stay at this charming B&B in beautiful and historic downtown Odessa. Bob and Debi provided exceptional hospitality to me and my elderly mother, going above and beyond to ensure our physical comfort and peace of mind. Our rooms were lovely, clean, and comfortable. Bob is a fantastic chef, so breakfast was a real treat. And in these challenging pandemic times, they went to great length to make us feel safe and secure, and even invited us to eat our take-away dinner (from the fabulous Cantwell's Tavern!) by the roaring fire in their family room, since we were not comfortable dining-in at the restaurant. Bravo, Bob and Debi, on your exceptional inn! You are two special people, and we hope to see you (and Pablo) again soon!
The two of you and Pablo truly take such great care of the lovely house and grounds. Clean is an understatement to the attention to detail. I am sure even before COVID it was spotless. All the amenities as well as the breakfast was awesome
