Our Cottage home is in a gated community, with access to our association pool and playground and crabbing dock. A short drive takes you to the beaches, restaurants, outlet stores ,biking/hiking trails and boardwalks in Lewes and Rehoboth Beach . For a first time treat, try your hand at crabbing with your string around a chicken neck and your trusty net to land your crabs. All tools plus chicken parts provided and David will steam your catch of the day for you.
Our single family home was built in the ranch style with everything on one floor. While our guest room looks Victorian, there is nothing antique about the private bath down the hall with its whirlpool tub and a rain shower head. For those traveling with others there are additional private bedrooms for three or four people. The living room offers a TV, reading or chat space. Beverages and snacks are offered and our guests select between a continental breakfast or one from a menu of choices.
Our house lends itself to easy transitioning from bedrooms and bath to the living room with its flat screen TV or to the sunroom for conversational groupings. While our galley kitchen is small, the Keurig coffee pot is readily available for a variety of k-cups of coffees, teas or hot chocolate. There are house wines and locally brewed beers with snacks upon request.
Interaction with guests
As your hosts, we shall be on the premises throughout your stay and can
serve as a wealth of knowledge about the area, activities, alternative plans, or places to experience for true dining pleasure. David is a gourmet cook and we offer you your preference in breakfasts or late evening snacks. There is a complimentary crabbing kit for you and either
of us can take on the helpful instructions for the first timers.
Other things to note
During the high vacation days of Memorial Day to Labor Day, the community is filled with owners of vacation homes and perennial renters. After labor day, although there are many weekend activities in Rehoboth which continue into the fall, the area reverts to calm and routine.
The pool, with our resident passes is open from 10 am to 7pm, the playground for young children has new equipment. There also are tennis
courts and 2 bocci ball courts.
