Owner info

Year Purchased: 1956

About the owner: My family has been in the area since 1955 and this is the cottage property on our farm that I spent every waking summer moment swimming, playing, boating, crabbing, beach combing etc. A Norwegian shipping captain, Capt. Olsen built these summer cottages for his personal enjoyment. They are completely private and peaceful. There is a gradual depth as you go into the water making it easy to play with small children at the water's edge.

Why the Owner Chose Betterton:
There are never jelly fish as you are at the very head of the Chesapeake Bay which is brackish water with 5 rivers feeding the Bay- Susquehanna, North East, Elk, Bohemia and Sassafras rivers.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The due north heading of the property give you full sunrise and sunset views all year. Watching the ships go by as they proceed from the Chesapeake to the Delaware Bay is a wonderful pasttime. There is a website called marine traffic that allows you to track the ships and tells you their name, homeport and destination. Definitely have cell service via Verizon allowing for use of tablets and smart phones. Otherwise it is purely peaceful.
