About Brian and Beth Bruffey

My family has been coming to the Dewey and Rehoboth beaches for over 40+ years. Growing up with 4 brothers and 1 sister in Silver Spring, Maryland, our parents gave us the opportunity to build and enjoy an incredible amount of memorable experiences at the shore. My Mom, along with my older brother, currently live in Rehoboth. One of my younger brothers also owns a cottage 4 houses down on Carolina St. We're incredibly fortunate to have this home and the opportunity to share it with others to enjoy all of the fun the beach has to offer to create those unique, memorable family and friends experiences.

Brian and Beth Bruffey purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Brian and Beth Bruffey chose Rehoboth by the Sea

My wife, Beth and I purchased this property to provide the same opportunities for our family of three young men and their anticipated future families...the same opportunities my parents provided for us over the past 40+ years. We're anticipating 123 Carolina will be their vacation destination for their families for the next 40+ years as well! This area is consistently recognized as one of the top vacation places in the country. How can you not love Dewey?

What makes this cottage unique

The convenient, 2 block walking access to the beach is fantastic. You can even hear the waves crashing on the beach from the porch. Very dog friendly area and walking distance to many of the Dewey Beach and Rehoboth activities. Featuring great restaurants, family atmosphere, boardwalk, shops, fishing/crabbing, summer night-life activities, and of course, the sun and fun at the beach, Dewey & Rehoboth have everything for a wonderful, restful and relaxing vacation.

Great Easter beach weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at this cozy, charming cottage. Quiet neighborhood, but close to the beach. Perfect location. Hosts were helpful with any questions. We hopefully will be back soon.

Delightful beach escape - close to everything, yet away from busy traffic and crowds

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying at the cottage. It's a warm and welcoming place, prettily furnished with beach-themed touches. With 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, it was very accommodating for our family, but never felt too large or impersonal. We felt like we could actually live here. As it's off Highway 1, it's protected from all the traffic and noise, and has the added advantage of being set in a charming and friendly beach neighborhood. We felt completely comfortable sending the kids and dog the short walk to the beach by themselves. The cottage is well-equipped with all the comforts of home. We loved the furnished porch - it was perfect for reading and playing games with the family. Hoping to come back next year!
