About Dot Lange

Married for 42 years, this beach house has given our 9 children and 18 grandchildren lasting memories. Recently upgraded, we look forward to sharing our happy place with you and yours.

Dot Lange purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Dot Lange chose Delaware

We looked to buy a property that suited both of us. This place gave us the enjoyment of peaceful and natural wildlife from the private beach as well as the chance to hop over to the shopping outlets or the nightlife at the casino.

What makes this cottage unique

The huge picture windows from the inside or the breeze filled balcony from the outside gives all who stay the most beautiful unobstructed views of the Delaware Bay.

Awesome, Fun,Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time here and when we first got their we opened the Big windows and the Bay breezes were Fantastic. You walk out onto a big deck and that's where you are captivated by the amazing view... all week long we were the only ones on the beach except for a few passerbys...we loved picking up sea shells and going out on the intertubes during high tide...also walking along the beach with the water waving up over your feet when the sun is rising...if one word was needed to describe it would be RELAXING ... it is 50 min away from rehoboth and 20 min from Dover...spiral staircase was interesting...3 bathrooms a plus...Patty thank you for your welcome... Dot thank you for your home...

This year we took my daughter and her family so it was 4 adults and 6 children ages 9 through 11. The kids spent most of their time out on the beach exploring, helping the horseshoe crabs get back into the bay, catching and releasing frogs, fishing and playing. The adults were able to relax on the beach or on the deck and could see the children wherever they were. The beach is private for the most part, in the morning and later in the afternoon some vacationers walk by and everyone is very friendly. The locals we met at the red bar/restaurant were very friendly and informative. Will certainly be back next year.

Despite only having 2 sunny days and only one of them warm enough to swim, we still lost track of time daily! We were greater by the horseshoe crabs mating on the beach, turtles laying eggs and swimming in the water. They came up right to the cottage! The tides are amazing...the water comes to the bottom of the dune and so far out. We walked out super far just expLoring and looking at the "potholes" from the crabs. Found hermit crabs and calms too. At night the water sounds so soothing...even in a severe storm. There are frogs out front that are singing loudly every night and shorebirds talking every morning. It's so natural! I recorded all of it to listen to at home. We explored the DAFB museum, Rehobeth, Cape Henlopen State Park, Lewes beach and others in between since most of our time was too cold and rainy to swim. We lost track of time exploring the beach at low tide each morning we didn't do the traveling til afternoon. This was so relaxing we didn't want to leave the deck or views to come home. The 2nd floor is like it's own suite...if you can climb spiral stairs! And that upper deck is awesome. ..especially for watching storm clouds, stars and the huge airforce planes that fly by to land at the base! There was no one around except for a few locals walking the beach now and then. It was our own private beach...surrounded by sand, water, crabs, birds, frogs, turtles...pure nature!

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was the week of Labor Day and we couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better place to stay! The house has a great view and we woke up to a beautiful sunrise every morning. The beach is perfect for a walk or just relaxing as we did most of the time. Due to the time of year the beach very private beach except for a few neighbors who couldn’t have been friendlier. I think this spot is perfect whether you come with your family and young children or teenagers, couples or singles. It has everything you need.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This review is different than most reviews. We were unable to stay at the beach house due to a family health situation. In speaking with Dot, the owner, she was very understanding and compassionate about our circumstances. Her kindness led to a solution that was amicable to both of us. Thank you Dot for helping to make a difficult time easier. It's nice to know that there are people like you out there.
