Iona Stables and B&B is a 35 acre working horse farm. We both love the land and the solitude and peace Iona provides to the soul. This land has been in Robert’s family since the 1880’s, being purchased by his great grandfather when he married. The crossroads where Iona is located is called Argo’s Corner after my mother’s family. We moved to the land and built our house in 2003, the estate name of Iona, which is taken from and island off the coast of Ireland. Iona in Ireland, was the center for spiritual renewal for over 100 years have been founded by St. Columba. It is our desire that our Iona is also a place for rest, renewal and spiritual awakening to all who who enjoy our home. Our home is furnished with many of our families heirlooms. The bedroom suit in our upstairs guest room was the made in 1830 and was the part of the furniture that the great granddaughter of Thomas Muncy that she started housekeeping with after she was married. The bedroom suit in our main downstairs guest room was the original bedroom suit of Robert’s Aunt Doris. While staying at Iona you are welcome to use any of the outside porches and decks, as well as walk along the paths that go through the woods, along the creek and around the pond. You are also, if so inclined to walk through the stables and enjoy the horses. We also had a very friendly springer spaniel name Chip. Iona is situated three miles from the Delaware Bay and fifteen miles form the Atlantic Ocean. Cedar Creek runs along the back of our property and is a great place for kayaking if you have a kayak. We do have a canoe that guest are welcome you use. The Cedar Creek estuary is a pristine waterway that has not been crowded by developments. It is also a great spot for both salt and fresh water fishing. There is a public boat launch to the Delaware bay about four miles form our home. The Atlantic Ocean is a thirty minutes by boat from the launch. We have parking at Iona for boat and trailer. While at Iona you can enjoy the many State parks in Sussex and Kent counties, as well as the beaches. Rehoboth offers many tax free shopping outlets, which makes Iona a great pre-Christmas place to stay as you do your Christmas shopping.
