Our Story

The home of exceptional travel

The History of
Accent on Travel

When Annette first met Rick, both held a passion for travel. In 1989, the same year they got married, the pair took over a struggling small travel agency in Towson, MD. They converted that business into the wonderful success that Accent on Travel is today, now with headquarters in Rehoboth Beach, DE, a branch office in Wilmington DE, and full-time professional travel advisors throughout the Mid Atlantic area.

After visiting over 120 countries many over 30 times and sailing on over 82 different cruise ships, traveling is still their passion. They expanded the travel planning services of the company bringing in exceptionally talented professional travel advisors, connecting with the best and most reputable travel suppliers in the world, and upgraded technology to offer clients mobile itineraries and cruise price decrease alerts. Both they and their team of expert travel advisors serve as professional hosts on Accent on Travel’s Hosted Journeys and Cruises. This has allowed them to provide a service where the value of professional expertise is truly felt by new travelers and returning patrons who choose to use Accent on Travel time and again.

Philanthropy Efforts

Your decision to use a local travel agency to design and manage your travel, versus using a large international organization to book your travel plans, keeps those jobs and the spending from those jobs in your local community. Annette and Rick Stellhorn, owners of Accent on Travel, have taken that a step further and have, through their connections in the travel industry, infused local nonprofits with over $300,000 in travel and financial donations since 2012.

On a personal level, Annette and Rick also foster a child in Kenya through boarding school. Through the donations of Accent on Travel and clients who have chosen to contribute while on tour, we have new water wells in villages, and school supplies and clothes to those without in India, Kenya, Tanzania, Peru, and other poverty-stricken locations.

Accent Client Reviews

Hi Lisa, We just arrived home from what was perhaps our BEST family vacation ever late last night. If you would like to give me a call, I will tell you all about it, but suffice it to say that every minute of every day was fun-filled with incredible activities, led by incredible guides, food was absolutely scrumptious at all of the many different venues, Merriweather Lewis house was luxurious and oh-so-comfortable, and to top if off (icing on the cake), my daughter’s boyfriend proposed to her on the banks of the Blackfoot River right after our family cattle drive Sunday! That’s a great story in and of itself! 😊

I just want to thank you for the great job you did not only of recommending Paws Up, but staying close to me, and making sure all was meeting my expectations. My daughter-in-law had read some bad reviews of Paws Up, especially around the concierge experience, but we did not have any issues and got exactly all the activities we wanted when we wanted them, thanks in large part to your persistence and constant engagement with them. (When reading some of the bad reviews, I also think they were from rich people who were overly used to being pampered unnecessarily). I still remember our first conversation when you told me about the resort and the cost, and my “gulp” at the price at first. Please know that I now believe the experience was worth every penny of what we paid!

Thank you, again, Lisa, for everything you did to make our 2022 family summer vacation so special and memorable!

Kind Regards,

Cathy Reilly
