Cottage By The Bay, Broadkill Beach, Delaware
**late winter 2019- Come check us out in the winter! Great time to visit the area and scope it all out. Lewes and Rehoboth is open for business with events happening all the time. We will try to post them here. Cottage is cozy. Please note: cable is basic at this time and there is no wifi up to March 31st but there is internet signal. Please inquire with any questions.
The beach access on our street is accessible but not perfect. Check out our photos to see what it looks like (read the captions for the dates). You can get to the beach a few blocks down if you want to wheel down beach gear. Since it was the end of the season, winter n'oreasters to contend with, it was not repaired yet. Usually, in all the time we have owned there, the beach access is repaired or steps are added in early spring (end of March).

Lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage, sunroom with water views, large living room, cable and high-speed internet (In season. See Amenities section for details.) , new kitchen appliances, central AC, gas 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. 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 the outlets 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!!
