We purchased this from the family, it was the site of a grand old home that started as a hunting clubhouse for a Baltimore Sailmaker, thought to be designed by an Architect named Stanford White. It was destroyed in a 3 day Nor' Easter in 1962, all except for the old 116 year old summer kitchen. That has been preserved as the master bedroom. My grandmother's old house is across the street, and we have some of the furniture from that house, built in 1927, including the rocker, a mirror, and some wicker.
Caren purchased this House in 2014
Why Caren chose The Pines
It is breathtaking, has history, and no one has been able to see the ocean from there in over 50 years until now. It is a freestanding cottage with breathtaking views, privacy but at the top of the boardwalk, just a block up, with nothing blocking the view, still walkable to town restaurants, bookstores, cafe's , galleries , gyms, bicycle rental and local events. Walk to Funland, lake Girar for a little sunfishing, tot playground and more. Watch the sunrise from the Oceanfront decks with your morning coffee, see the porpoises, the boats, paint a picture from your deck. Bike to Old Lewes, Gordon's Pond or the Bluffs of Cape Henlopen. Come for Fall jazz, fest, Sea Witch, fall Arts Festival, Christmas, New Years or your special Holidays. Even in the rain it is cozy sitting by the fire overlooking the ocean. You will not find the privacy, accessibility to the beach and boardwalk with the Ocean Front Sound and Views anywhere else in Rehoboth. It is Unique.
What makes this House unique
The swings on the porch are hand made from an old Maine Pattern. There are many whimsical features you will discover in the house, but most of all, you can hear the waves at night in all the bedrooms, and even feel you are on the beach while in the house. In the winter it is cozy sitting by the gas fireplace. Off season is a very special time too, often not another soul in site on the beach. Year round, the sunrise over the ocean, best seen from the second floor, is spectacular.

Wonderful getaway house on the ocean!
I cannot say enough good things about this perfect Rehobeth House. Amazing views and a short drive to town. Very unique for the area to find such a lovely new home waterfront. Very private location: we stayed during s beautiful spring weekend and never felt the “crowds”. Both floors had large beautiful clean screened in porches that were nicely furnished. The deck off the great room offered a great ocean view spot for morning coffee and lunch. The house felt clean and new and was just spacious enough for our small group. The owners were lovely and responsive. Can’t wait to visit again!
Great views, fantastic private location and just steps from the boardwalk
The property is in great shape and the location is perfect. You have a great quiet beach (almost feels private) but an easy walk to the boardwalk, restaurants and shopping. The owner is super responsive and very helpful. They had our linens delivered and stocked the refrigerator which lessens the to do list, overhead and the move-in process.
Super ocean front porches covered screened- in and another which is open to the sun. We had a great time and the property enhanced our experience immensely and the proximity to the ocean allowed us to rest easily and to recharge. I highly would recommend it to anyone.
Thank you so much for the kind words, we love to hear that you enjoyed our cottage and your stay. We hope you will come back and think of it as your own while you are there.
Beautiful home, perfect location and wonderful owner!
I highly recommend renting this house. The house is honestly one of the most beautiful homes I've seen and it was spotless. The master bedroom and master bath are perfection. The master bedroom has sliding doors to a lovely porch and the master bath has a beautiful, large soaking tub that I enjoyed while viewing the ocean. All the bathrooms are very updated and modern.
The house has SO MANY porches to view the ocean. There are upper level and lower level porches including an upper level screened-in one with a dining table and comfy furniture.
The kitchen is definitely updated with beautiful counter-tops and top-grade oven, stove, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher. It was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook in every night. We chose to cook in every night, but you don't need to as the house is perfectly situated at the end of the boardwalk. You just need to cross the small access street that runs in front of the home and you are on the beach or the boardwalk. We walked one day to Thrashers (required for our trips to Rehoboth :-) ) and it was super easy and fast. You can walk to any of the downtown, delicious restaurants easily from this house with its access to the boardwalk and neighborhoods off the boardwalk.
Finally, the owners are absolutely lovely. From first communication with the reservation, through our visit, I have thoroughly enjoyed Caren's hospitality. We were welcomed with a few extra special touches upon our arrival that made us feel very special. We didn't have any issues at all but we did forget a jacket and Caren not only found it and called us (we hadn't noticed yet, we were still driving home), but she mailed it to us the same day we left.
Again, this is a beautiful home, a perfect location and the perfect owners!
Thank you for the lovely note! It was wonderful to meet you while there. I was a little worried about the raw spring weather but hope you were able to enjoy the fireplace and the solitude at that time of year. It is very special to have the beach all to yourself.
Thanks so much for the kind comments, it was a privilege to have you as a guest.
Happy New Year!! With great friends!!!
We had a wonderful time! The home is beautiful, Caren the perfect owner; very accommodating and kind. Just steps to the boardwalk! And the views - unbelievable!!
We hope to return!
Thank you so much! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay for New Year’s, and wishing you a happy, healthy and productive New Year!
Beautiful house, great location on the beach
We had a great stay. Beautiful house, right on the beach and walking distance to downtown restaurants and boardwalk. Loved hearing the sound of the ocean as we slept.
Thanks so much for taking the time to review our beach house. I do hope you will return very soon!
Our family had a wonderful week at Moondock. Although I would have set up things differently in the house, it did not take away from our visit. We love sitting on the porches and watching the water. My grandchildren loved the porch swings. The closeness to the beach and boardwalk are great. My husband and I loved our morning bike rides as well. Beautiful spot!
Thanks so much for staying at our beach cottage. We would love your input regarding any improvements in set up you would suggest. We want to please our guests!
This property enjoys expansive ocean views, with the sound of the waves audible from all bedrooms. It is steps away from the north end of the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk. Excellent starting point for bike rides to Henlopen State Park. Lower level has large screened-in porch. Upper level has large screened-in porch, an open air deck, and a pergola covered deck outside master bedroom. Ample off street parking.
