Space 1,200 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)


Located on a quiet street on the north side of Dewey Beach, this classic beach cottage was renovated in 2005, adding ample space and all the modern amenities while maintaining it's original charm and coziness. The indoor spaces are comfortable, inviting, and spacious with a large living room/dining room area, 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths. French doors and casement windows allow beautiful breezes on days when you want to skip the AC. But the best spot in the house is on the huge screen porch -- perfect for morning coffee, happy hours, a good book, or hanging out with friends -- or perhaps in the adjacent HOT TUB (new in 2015) that comfortably soaks 6 to 8 adults. Just 2+ blocks to the beach and the bay, and 4 blocks to Dewey nightlife, it is close to everything you want to see and do, but far enough away for the peace and quiet you need. This home has many return guests who recognize it's special charm and feel like it's their own private oasis for a week or two every summer or an off-season get-away. Be sure to check out our visitors' comments in the Reviews section.

Also, please note that our summer 2018 calendar is on hold so we can give returning guest first choice of weeks. If you're looking for a week during that period, please check back in mid-January when available weeks will be released.


On the first floor, enjoy an airy living room with ahhhh-worthy sectional sofa and comfy chairs facing the new flat-screen TV & DVD player. In the off-season, the gas corner FIREPLACE provides warmth and coziness. The dining room offers seating for 8 to 10 at a large table. These rooms open to the truly huge screen porch (remodeled in 2016), perfect for relaxing or entertaining, with ample seating and an oversized picnic table. Right outside the screen porch is a large HOT TUB which comfortably seats 6 to 8 adults, surrounded by a deck with adorondak chairs and a charcoal grill.

In the kitchen, GRANITE countertops and white-washed cabinets provide plenty of storage and make this a lovely place to prepare meals. Appliances including:

- a 25 cubic-foot, side-by-side refrigerator with ice maker and in-door water/ice dispenser,

- a full-size oven, stovetop, and microwave,

- dishwasher,

- stainless steel sink with garbage disposal,

- coffee maker, toaster, blender, griddle, electric fry pan

- cookware, dishes, glasses and silverware


First Floor -- The first floor offers a bedroom and full bathroom -- very convenient for anyone who can't manage the stairs every day. Here a queen-size custom 4-poster bed overlooks the front porch with access through a sliding door making it a great spot for morning coffee or people watching. There is a small TV in this room. The bathroom has a tub/shower combination and is immediately adjacent to the bedroom while still accessible to the living spaces.

Master Bedroom -- On the second floor, the oversized Master Suite has a king size bed, new flat screen TV with DVD player, and cathedral ceilings. The private master bath contains a stall shower and large Corian double sinks.

Sea Glass Room & the Brady Bunch Room -- Also on the second floor, these two large bedrooms offer comfortable sleeping and share a hall bathroom. The Sea Glass Room has a queen bed and TV, while the Brady Bunch Room offers three double beds. The new bathroom on the adjacent hallway has a tub/shower combination and large Corian double sinks.

A fully-enclosed, private OUTDOOR SHOWER is adjacent to the screen porch and hot tub, prefect for a nice hot shower after the beach.

The LAUNDRY ROOM is located upstairs with extra large capacity washer and dryer.


This lovely house is ideally located slightly off the beaten track but close to everything, offering both quiet and convenience. The neighborhood is typically quiet and hospitable with many families and year-round residents and a lot less of the 'craziness' of downtown Dewey. Yet, it is within blocks of all the wonderful Dewey Beach attractions and restaurants. You can also enjoy a nice fifteen minute walk to downtown Rehoboth, or catch the Jolley Trolley to the boardwalk. The guarded beach and the bay are both an easy walk, even with young children. Many guest tell us they park their cars (there's room for 5!) and walk everywhere.

This house has it all -- comfort, convenience, quiet. The owners are meticulous about details and quality to ensure that your stay will be one you will enjoy and always remember. Come discover for yourself just how charming this house is. You'll want to come back every year.

About Susan Layne

Sibling Revelry is owned by two sisters and their families who continue to embrace the idea that 'Dewey Beach is a way of life'. We used to come here in our twenties, renting group houses and hanging out at the Starboard. One sister even met her husband here. Now that we are married and have children, we've found a new Dewey -- a kinder, gentler, more family friendly Dewey -- full of great times together in our beach cottage, happy hours on the screen porch, and time spent with our families.

We bought this house in 2001 when our babies were babies (see picture) because we fell in love with the screen porch, wood paneling, and classic cottage feel. In 2005, with our expanding families, we decided to renovate, adding more living space and a master suite. Our goal was to add the comforts of a modern, year-round home without compromising the cottage charm we fell in love with. We think we succeeded.

We love coming here ourselves and we love when our guests discover for themselves everything that's wonderful about this place -- the screen porch, the hot tub, plenty of space, plenty of charm, close to everything but far from the maddening crowds. We hope you'll love it as much as we do.

Why Susan Layne chose Ann Acres

This house brings together the old-time charm of a classic beach cottage combined with space and convenience added in a 2005 renovation. We're very proud that many of our guests return year after year and we earn many great reviews. Be sure to check them out to see the guest's perspective.

What makes this house unique

Comfortable, cozy, convenient. The house is close to everything but far enough off the beaten track to avoid the craziness of in-town Dewey.

We loved this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had to make last minute changes from our trip to Hilton Head because of Irma. A friend suggested Rehoboth Beach and after finding several choices available, we picked this one.

My entire family had nothing but praise for this home away from home! We all had our own bedroom (including my 2 year old grandson). We put him in a pack n play in the Brady Bunch bedroom & still had 3 full beds leftover.

We went to several restaurants on their list of places they recommended and were very pleased every time.

The hot tub and the screened in porch were our favorite things. It is a short walk to the beach and in a nice quiet neighborhood. We highly recommend this beautiful cottage and hope to return someday soon! :)
