Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) Many new upgrades!

Please note the house sleeps a maximum of 4 people.

Watch the sun and the moon rise over the Delaware Bay from this quiet, comfortable beachfront retreat. This easy-going cottage offers a laid-back place to celebrate life, especially for those who travel with their dogs.

Cook your favorite meals in our full kitchen, already supplied with spices and condiments, or go out to a decadent meal in one of the area's gourmet restaurants. The beach resort offers numerous activities from golf and watersports to theater and tax-free shopping, all within a few minutes' drive, but this is the place you want to call home at the end of the day.

Enjoy the romance of a candlelit evening in front of the cast-iron stove in winter, a bonfire on your private beach in summer if the wind is right, or just a simple moment of solitude wandering along the water's edge in any season. Retreat to your bedroom (one queen, one double bed) and fall asleep with the sound of the waves lapping the shore.

There's one full bath and, in summer, an outdoor shower to comfortably rinse off the salt and sand. You can also hook up a quick-connect hose to rinse off your pup with warm water.

Only two hours from Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia, yet a world away from the stress and hassles. Escape the hustle of your work week with a relaxing weekend.

Take time to rest, to play. Make time for yourself, and for those you love. Come to the Cottage at Prime Hook Beach, where we provide all the basics for your comfort.

Guests are required to bring their own linens, blankets, towels and paper/soap products.

Why Jessica Stiner chose Delaware

** This home has had many new upgrades during the 2017 winter season.**

This cottage with a fully-glassed in porch overlooking the Delaware Bay makes you feel as if you are outdoors year-round. The open floor plan affords a view of the water from the back door, through the kitchen and living room, to the front porch.

Guests describe the feeling of tranquility that begins the moment they leave the highway and wind their way through the 5 miles of fields and forest and marshes of the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge.

Prime Hook Beach is a lovely community, close enough to upscale restaurants and tax-free shopping at the outlets, but far enough away to feel like you are in another era.

What makes this cottage unique

Having a private, sandy beach right at your front door allows you to set up your stuff for the day, and be able to easily pop in and out of the house for a cold drink, lunch, your favorite paperback, another dog toy.

When the wind is right, you can have a bonfire or just lay back and watch as the stars come out. You can take sleeping bags out to spend the night watching the mid-August sky for shooting stars or enjoy watching (from the shelter of the porch) the occasional summer thunderstorm sweep across the bay, the rain dancing on the tin roof.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

It's cute and right on the beach. Pretty sunrises. Lots of nature. Perfect for a quick getaway from the DC area.

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice family place. My mother in law is handicapped. It is difficult to find a place that accepts pets and is accessible. There were a few minor adjustments that had to be made temporarily to get her on to the toilet and to bathe her. You cannot blame the owners for that. The company that manages the property actually came on scene to see how everything was going. The thermostat was a little confusing and there was not really cell reception. There was wifi. You have your own section of beach. There are others there but you could probably count the persons on the beach the same time as you on one hand. It was nice having a private beach. At the time we were there it seemed like an nice laid back area. We had an air mattress placed on the enclosed porch on the upper carpeted section since there were not enough beds for all of us and there was plenty of room. I'd recommend this place. If you are going to exceed the recommended guest level make sure you message the company and let them know. They will work with you. There are only 2 bedrooms. My wife and I slept in one and had a portable crib for the baby. My mother in law slept in th other bedroom, my mother had an air mattress on the rear enclosed porch, the dogs had a kennel and playpen set up in the living room to sleep in. That's a lot of stuff and there was still plenty of room to move around even with a wheel chair. If you have a handicapped person in your group that cannot transfer this property will not work. The bathroom is too small for the chair. We set up a shower stool on the edge of the tub. Transferred from the chair to the stool to the toilet and back. Quick edit the house is behind the building in the driveway through the gate to the right. The first building appears to be a small house but it is just storage that guests do not have access to.

Relaxing vacation with pup & kids

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described and it was better than expected. Nice amount of space even with three small kids and a dog. Nice sunporch to hang out in on rainy days. Well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, and cute fenced yard for the pup to enjoy. The sofa was big enough and comfy enough for my 5 year old daughter to sleep on. Thanks for accomodating our family of five. We enjoyed a much needed break in your charming cottage. We enjoyed helping the many stranded horseshoe crabs tip back on their legs and get back to the bay. It was nice to have cable tv and wifi for some rainy day relaxation. Thank you to management for rapid responses and accomodation for all our needs. We stayed over memorial day weekend.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This cottage on the beach is our favorite place to vacation. We love that it is comfortable and homey, and we can totally relax here. We've been here five or six times, and the new upgrades earn it a 5 star review. Comfortable furniture, a nice 55" tv (bring your Amazon Firestick!), a user friendly kitchen, fenced in yard out front for the doggos, and adirondak chairs duneside, makes it very easy to not leave the house.

If you do leave the house, there is plenty to do within a half hour drive. Restaurants and shopping are everywhere, Po' Boys Creole and Fresh Catch in Milton is our favorite. There's even a movie theater 25 minutes away, for those "too hot to be outside" afternoons.

Perfect stay for those with 2 or 4 legs

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I spent a wonderful 6 days in this adorable, updated bungalow on the beach. Our dogs just loved the fenced in front yard where we could all enjoy the private outside patio area together freely and the "back yard" which was the beach. Gorgeous views of the dunes and water from the front porch where we ate our breakfast. The house had everything we needed to cook a few meals although we enjoyed our trips to Milton and Rehobeth for dinners out as well. The weather was unseasonably warm so we really had the best of both worlds, perfect beach days and hardly any other people. Everyone we did meet was nice and the birdwatching was amazing. We would love to return, one of our best beach vacations with our dogs yet.
