Welcome to the Covered Bridge Inn!

Our newly renovated farmhouse is nestled on 500 acres of preserved Delaware farmland. We are the original 1830 farmhouse on Hopkins Dairy Farm, a world class dairy operation, only 5 miles from Delaware’s destination beaches, tax free shopping, delectable restaurants, and diversified activities and entertainment.

Our guest rooms with private baths include modern farmhouse décor, luxurious bath and bed linens, free wifi, and modern entertainment amenities. Our hearty farmhouse breakfasts include produce, jams, and honey harvested right here on our farm by Hopkins Henlopen Homestead. You will have the energy needed for a day at the beach, limitless shopping, or exploring the towns of Lewes, Milton, and Rehoboth Beach. Return to the farm to stretch your legs, take a deep breath, and let the quiet calm of the crops and cows heal your mind and body.  A complimentary helping of ice cream from Hopkins Farm Creamery is how we unwind here on the dairy farm.

We know that sticking to a strict check in time can be difficult, so we offer the option of a super-convenient Electronic Check In process for our guests. You can select that option when you make your reservation and arrive at your convenience!  The traditional check in process is also available every day for those who would prefer it.

The Land of Milk and Honey.

The charm and character of this historic home has been preserved throughout our thoughtful renovation. The Hopkins family has a long tradition of agricultural achievement, land preservation, and love of Sussex County and everything it has to offer.
