                The Red Knot Cottage was the PERFECT place to stay! It was like living at your very own beach house. We have stayed at many beach houses but I must say this house was the BEST! It had alot to do with the owner. I have never stayed at a house where the owner was there to greet us. She had baskets of yummies for us and even cold water for our dogs. The house was so nice and clean. Sharron had the house well supplied with items you might have forgotten to pack and she shared it all with the families that stay there. There was even a bike you could use for a early morning ride through Slaughter Beach. She gave us many tips on things to do and places to go. Thank you so much Sharron. Now we know why your house is so special because of the loving and caring owner. Our stay was so quiet and relaxing. The beach is very family oriented and dog friendly. Our dogs had a blast! There was so much to do there, you could head north to the Casino and also enjoy a trip to an Air Command Museum. (all day trips) Then head south to the Cape Henlopen State Park and further south to Rehoboth Beach and boardwalk. Even stop off for some shopping at the outlets. But the best part was coming back home to the peacefulness after a busy day of touring. One will never be bored here at Slaughter Beach. I must say my favorite thing was getting up every morning at five thirty and tiptoeing out of the house with my camera and sitting on the lifeguard chair and snapping away at the most beautiful sunrises. I would highly recommend this beautiful house for your next vacation. Thank you Sharron for sharing it with us. We will return!

                Owner response: Slaughter Beach is a wonderful place to be where ever you are staying. It is easy also when your guests are as great Wanda and family. Sharron

                This was our second time staying here and it was another wonderful vacation. It is the best of both worlds because we have a quiet beach to play on, walk, and relax all day without being crowded but we are close enough to enjoy some evenings on the boardwalk. The house had everything we could need and is comfortably furnished and very clean. The views from both upstairs bedrooms are amazing. I loved waking up to a view of the sunrise each morning. The owner is so friendly and helpful when renting. The entire family had a great time and I know we will be back next summer!

                Just got back to the real world after spending another week at Red Knot Cottage. It is so peaceful and quiet, but not far from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas. Great for walks on the beach, watching the sunrise from the upstairs deck, birding. More horseshoe crabs on the beach than people. Found interesting shells after the storm. Close to Bombay Hook and Prime Hook Nature Preserves. Would definitely recommend the sunset cruise out of Lewes. Cottage is clean and well maintained with many homey extras- binocualrs, birding books, snacks, etc. Sharron is very easy to work with. This is our 3rd year in a row renting this property. We will probably be back

                My wife and I and our dog spent Thanksgiving week at Red Knot Cottage. The cottage was very comfortable and well-appointed. It has anything you might need, and of course, is located right on Delaware Bay. We enjoy birding, and it's proximity to both Prime Hook and Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuges make it a wonderful base of operations for that hobby. Sharron was a wonderful host. We hope to return again in the future.

                This place was charming- much nicer than the photos show on the web site. Very clean and everything there for our use- umbrellas,chairs, childrens beach toys, well equipped kitchen and two of the bedrooms were much larger than we expected. I would suggest anyone coming bring water shoes, it is rocky and also bug repellent., Those are the only things we had to adjust to, buying water shoes and getting more insect repellent. My dog had a delightful time as did my children andgrandkids. We plan to return.

                Our stay at Red Knot Cottage over Memorial Day week-end was delightful. At RKC we have found a lovely, comfortable house situated in a most serene location where we can enjoy nature and the shore uninterrupted by the hustle and bustle of modern-day life. We hope to return to this special place many times.

                Hi! Just wanted to send a quick email to thank you and let you know that we had a terrific time. What a beautiful home! We loved the cottage and beach and feel like we made a fabulous discovery with this trip.The wildlife was amazing and the kids learned so much from all your books. They turned over horseshoe crabs every morning. Master bedroom view of the sunrise was my favorite. The kids squealed with delight when they discovered the "secret" bedroom on the porch. Thanks again and have a wonderful summer.
