Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The minute you step into our charming waterfront cottage you will feel right at home!

Situated on Harness Creek, in a quiet residential neighborhood, the Yellow Cottage is a great place to 'get away from it all'. Recently renovated, our 60+ year old home has all of the modern day comforts to make your stay enjoyable. With the original heart pine floors and a huge farm sink in the kitchen, we have retained the feeling of a true waterfront cottage.

A cheerful country kitchen greets you as you enter the front door. If it's just a cup of tea you want or something more elaborate, the kitchen has it all. Beyond the kitchen is a sunny combination dining and living room area. Two oversize comfy chairs face the water in the sitting area where you can read or relax with a glass of wine.

With the two bedrooms, the cottage sleeps four guests in either a queen or full sized bed. A sleep sofa in the living room can sleep an additional guest.

During the summer months enjoy life on the creek! Bring your fishing rod and cast from the pier or try your hand at catching some local crabs. Rent canoes and paddle kayaks close by at Quiet Water's Park. Visit us during the fall and watch the leaves change across the creek from your Adirondack chair each morning. Or settle in for a cozy winter weekend at the cottage with a good book and some hot chocolate!

Beautiful little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough nice things about Rhonda and this cottage. She was easy to get ahold of and flexible with our arrival, as we ran into unexpected traveling issues. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and beautiful. The use of the kayaks was a bonus as well. Rhonda has thought of everything you would need to enjoy a great getaway. We had a wonderful time and will be back. Thank you for sharing your cottage with us!

Deceivingly Spacious

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a wonderful week long stay at the Yellow Cottage. This was a last minute rental for us, but Rhonda made the whole process seamless. The house was clean, comfortable and looked just like the pictures - but felt more spacious than the front entry would suggest. For half the week there were 2 adults there, and for the remaining half there were 4 of us and the cottage accommodated us all very well. We used the outdoor grill, the kayaks, enjoyed the water views from the shaded, well landscaped yard, and cooked several meals in the well outfitted kitchen. We had a very relaxing week and were only sorry that it went so quickly. Would definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the charming Yellow Cottage.

It was the perfect place for a quick weekend visit with our children who are studying at UDel. We enjoyed the proximity to DC and were able to take in some sights during the day.

There were many thoughtful touches that made our stay very comfortable. We were able to enjoy several "home made" meals; the kitchen was well equipped and organized. The beds were very comfortable. Sunday morning with the sunlight sparkling on the water was nothing less than magical.

We all agreed that the weekend at the cottage was heavenly. We hope to be able to visit again soon.
