About Melinda Rainey

We are Ruth & Wayne Millington, a retired couple who have lived in Missouri all of our lives and love to spend time at our vacation home in Inlet Beach, Florida. We have seven children and lots of grandchildren, all of whom love the beach as much as we do. Our daughter, Melinda Rainey serves as our property manager.

Melinda Rainey purchased this house in 1976

Why Melinda Rainey chose Inlet Beach

We purchased the property in the seventies and built the house in 1978. We updated and remodeled both inside and outside in 2012.

What makes this house unique

One of our favorite things to do when spending time at our vacation home is sitting on the covered porch in the morning, drinking coffee and watching the dolphins.

Location- perfect, right on an uncrowned beach, plenty of water fun

Enough room for three generations of family members

Just To Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Just cant get any more perfect than this property!

Plenty of room for the 6 adults we had and would be great for a family with small children also.

The ocean is just steps away from the house deck, no crowds like in large complexes, quiet and stunning views of the sunrise and sunsets. Fully equipped house so need not bring anything except personal items and food. Updated furnishings & comfy beds!

Kudos to the owners and their housekeeping!

  • 5 of 5

The Millington Cottage was the perfect accommodation with a spectacular ocean view and the best beach access. The description of the cottage is spot on and more. Usually, our family is ready to return home after a week of fun in the sun but it was difficult leaving this new found treasure. The owners and housekeeping have maintained the Millington at an A+, 5 star level!!!! We will definitely be back to this lovely and relaxing spot.

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at Millington Cottage. The house was clean, comfy, and was perfect for my family of 8. The kitchen had anything you would need and the decks were wonderful! We spent most our time out there. My family also loved the shuffleboard downstairs. This be a house certainly has anything and everything you need to make the most of the beach.

The location was by far the best of all our trips down to the Panhandle. Destin and old 30A was easy to get to as well as exciting Panama City! The grocery store was minutes away.

The best part of our stay by far was the beach. It was beyond beautiful. You are literally on the beach, it is amazing! We saw dolphins everyday as well as sea turtles, sting rays, and pretty fish and shells. We snorkled everyday and found some great treasures.

This was the best beach vacation I've had and I highly recommend Millington Cottage for your next trip to the beach.
