Cottage By The Bay, Broadkill Beach, Delaware

Cottage By The Bay, Broadkill Beach, Delaware

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 17, 2014
2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, sleeps 6

Lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage, sunroom with water views, large living room, cable and high-speed internet, new kitchen appliances, central AC, oil heat, ceiling fans, two TVs, master bath, fully furnished. Off-street parking and a nice yard with a grill for outdoor cooking. And it's just 60 steps from the beach!

Broadkilll Beach is a hidden gem on the Delaware Bay. Drive through the PrimeHook Wildlife Refuge (check this out!) to a small strip of beach that is The Broadkill. It goes approximately 2 miles in both directions from the main cross street. This is a great place to get your run in. There is only one commercial property that the locals call 'The Mall', where you can get most everything that you might need to enhance your stay. You might feel, at times, that you have the beach to yourself! The people of the area are terrific, friendly and make you feel welcome.

When you need to be near the hustle and bustle of the popular shore points, it's only a short drive away. Wander over rte 16 to the little town of Milton or make your way south on rte 1 towards the beaches of Lewes, Cape Henlopen, Rehoboth, Dewey, and Bethany. Take a 90 minute ferry boat ride on the Cape May/Lewes Ferry out of Cape Henlopen. Spend the day in victorian Cape May, New Jersey. Take your car, bicycle or just walk aboard. There is a trolly on the other side that can take you to town. Get some fresh, right off the boat, scallops at the dockside restaurant at The Lobster House. Check out Morrows Nut House on the boardwalk for some dessert. Of course you have to play some skeeball or you could wait until you get back to Rehoboth to try your hand at that. The SeaShell shop miniature golf always looks fun, back on Rte 1 in Delaware, or maybe you want to check out all of the outlets. Save that for a rainy day as well as the movie theater that is close by too.

For me, a fun day at the beach is always great; Maybe have your morning coffee on the bench overlooking the bay;start in the morning with a walk to look for seashells; ride the waves; rent a paddleboard or soak up some Vitamin D; then a cookout - I can smell the charcoal-maybe some juicy cheeseburgers tonight? and don't forget the smores. On a clear night, look up and see the billions of stars that you won't ever see at home! It's amazing! Open all the windows at night so you can hear the waves while you have the best night's sleep ever! HAVE FUN!!

About the Owner

We have been vacationing at the Delaware beaches for over 30 years and never knew about the hidden gem on the bay that is Broadkill Beach. We visited the area with friends and instantly felt at home. We think you'll love it, too!

Perfect Quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5
This house is just great and only a few short steps from the beach. Quiet and relaxing. You'll really feel like you have the beach to yourself. Neighbors were extremely friendly. The cottage itself is very cozy and the kitchen had everything we needed for the long weekend. Town action is only a few miles away including the Cape May Ferry if you want to mix it up. If you're looking for a weekend to UNPLUG and breathe, this is the place.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5
Great spot for us, a family of four interested in outdoor activities and not being in the middle of crowds. We loved being so close to a great beach and I loved being able to launch my canoe from right there. The house is fine, but the location is great. If you want the crowds and boardwalk and stuff served to you, though, look elsewhere.

Great cottage by a tranquil beach

  • 5 of 5
Loved staying here at this neat, clean and adorable beach house steps from the water. The house is just what you need for a relaxing week away. Stock up the fridge, grill out, and just enjoy this place. You can hear the waves at night - only one house in from the beach. Far enough away from civilization to truly feel like you have had a vacation.

Nice beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5
First vacation to Delaware beaches and loved it! This cozy beach cottage on broadkill beach is a great location and easily sleeps 6. We choose this place for the location to Dover because we went to the firefly music festival. Worked out perfect, beach and festival all in one! Owners were very accommodative and friendly!

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5
First of all, the owners are very responsive and easy to deal with. Secondly, this place is exactly what we were looking for... a place that is quiet and close to the beach and each morning we took a walk on the beach to go get breakfast at the little store. Fresh made donuts... ARE YOU KIDDING!?!?! Awesome!! The place is not luxurious but we weren't looking for that. It was clean and well furnished. A typical old-fashioned beach cottage. Wonderful!!

Wonderful little cottage!

  • 5 of 5
My sister, cousin and I stayed here for our annual "girl's getaway" and had a great time. house is clean, charming and well-outfitted. Beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the sun porch every morning for breakfast. Access to the beach is close by. Recommend bringing your own linens, as although the rentals are adequate, you may like more blankets and towels. We hated to leave and will definitely be back.

Amenities

From the Owner

Getting to the cottage is an easy drive since the route takes you away from the shore traffic. The best of both worlds, Broadkill Beach is a quiet and secluded place to relax in the sun, and it's also close to the nightlife, restaurants and shopping of the shore points. Also close by are Cape Henlopen State Park, and the Cape May/Lewes Ferry.
