Cottage on Delightful Delaware Bay


If you are looking for a great, non-resort place to stay you have found the right location! If you do not want the resort experience, and clearly do not want to pay the resort prices yet discover a wonderful vacation have found your treasure here!
This cottage features 2 bedrooms with a wrap around porch in quiet, tranquil Slaughter Beach/ Milford, DE where bicycle riders have the true right of way on town roads! We treasure our very quiet beach neighborhood, with its own general store, brand new (installed in May 2013) community playground with tennis and basketball courts. Milford, (Slaughter Beach) is close to entertainment (Dover Downs, Lewes, Rehoboth and Ocean City Beaches), history (Dover Air Force Museum) science (DuPont Nature Center) shopping (3 full outlet centers in Rehoboth with tax free buying). NASACAR visits Dover twice a year and brings a variety of entertainments with those 2 events! Slaughter Beach can be easily accessed from NJ by taking a sail on the beautiful Cape May/Lewes Ferry. The ferry leaves Cape May and arrives in Lewes, DE which is only a 20 min. drive north to Slaughter Beach. Check out the CMLF website for their sailing schedule should you wish to add a delightful sail aboard the comfortable vessels which cross the bay daily. Most likely that you'll observe beautiful dolphins while sailing across the bay!
Each bedroom has a double bed and the front room (our study) has a pull out sofa which sleeps 2. All beds will be made up with freshly laundered sheets. We DO NOT supply towels. You will need to bring your own towels. The newly remodeled kitchen with granite counter, stainless steel dishwasher, oven, microwave and refrigerator await your cooking talents should you prefer to eat at home. There is a new washer and dryer to accommodate your washing needs. The home has 2 full baths, living room/ dining room, with sliding doors to view pond or bay...
You will find a public access path just a short walk (approximately 500 ft) down the street to the Delaware Bay. This area of the beach is a natural beach which is best suited for beach combing and quiet beautiful walks. Further along heading south (approximately 1.5 miles) you will find the public swimming beach next to the firehouse. There is plenty of free parking, a covered beach pavilion and restrooms at this location.

Located 1 mile from the front door is a newly constructed public boat launch which puts you on the Mispillion River (briefly...1 mile) and then onto the Delaware Bay for fabulous fishing and enjoyment of other water sports.
Also, enjoy the gorgeous views from the recently constructed DuPont Nature Center which is a 2 mile walk/bike ride from the property.

If enjoying the peaceful surroundings needs a blend of activity, it is only a short 23 mile drive on Rt. 1 south to Atlantic Ocean beaches ...Cape Henlopen State Park... Lewes...Rehoboth, Dewey, etc. All the tourist needs/wants can be found there with every kind of dining which may interest you....

And of course, there are the outlets...Tanger outlets have 3 sections of "bargains for everyone" and its all TAX FREE!

The Delaware State Parks have many activities to suit just about anyone. Killen's Pond is one of Delaware's State Parks located 12 miles from the property. This is one very special Park because it features a water park at a very reasonable cost.

This delightful home is located across the street from the Delaware Bay and is a 5 mile drive into the town of Milford. Our home is bright and sunny, surrounded by a beautiful natural setting perfect for relaxing. It is a quiet and stress free location away from the hustle and bustle of the summer tourists yet is close enough to enjoy the wonderful tourist attractions with a less than 30 minute drive. The BEST of both worlds!

If you leave your car behind and travel on the ferry as a walk on passenger (or bring your bike) you will be delighted with a 80 min. sail with beautiful views & breezes for a minimal cost! We think it is one of the secret hidden treasures of Lower Slower Delaware. Bring your camera for stunning photographs! Great surf fishing at the Cape Henlopen State Park.

This home is located within 25 miles of all of the outlets and 27 miles from the center of Rehoboth. East side of Route 1. Once there, you can take back roads to access shopping and downtown Rehoboth and avoid any traffic on Route 1.

There is NO WiFi in the house. Please be aware of this situation. You'll need to bring you're own "hot spot" .





The house is very clean and more spacious than the pictures online. It was very relaxing and peaceful.

We enjoyed staying at Maureen and Tom's cottage in Slaughter Bay. The property is in great condition, it was comfortable with 4 window a/c units and a recently remodeled kitchen. The location is rural and quiet--especially compared with nearby tourist destinations like Rehoboth and Cape May but there is little to do within walking distance. Enjoyed Maureen's little gifts for us on arrival and her flexibility in adjusting to our travel plans.

The hosts were incredibly attentive and thoughtful. They had little gift baskets for the kids when we got there and a muffins, milk and orange juice in the fridge. They were very response to every question, even dropping off flashlights and water in the middle of the night when a storm knocked out the power. The neighborhood was quiet and beach was FULL of horseshoe crabs. I think you need to drive 30-45 minutes to get to Lewes, Rohobeth or Dewey Beach. The local beach wasn't great for little kids to swim.

A very cute and quaint place to stay while we did a quick beach trip. Maureen and Tom are SO responsive and friendly! Maureen made the kids personalized goodie bags, had milk and OJ in the fridge for us and even fresh coffee cake! Right across the road from the beach which isn't a swimming beach but is great for shelling and a nature hike. Lots of horseshoe crabs which the kids loved seeing.

The cottage was perfect for us during a busy wedding weekend. The nearby beach is perfect for dog walking and the area is extremely quiet. Great value.

Best vacation! Spend you time on the spacious back deck taking in views of the creek and then spend your mornings on the front porch enjoying the sunrise. A very short walk to the bay, convenient to area beaches and stores. Maureen and Tom were excellent hosts, the cabin was spotless and just as in the photos. It was a lot bigger than we thought from the photos as well. Perfect for two couples with the two full baths. The kitchen reno is gorgeous. We spent the majority of our trip relaxing and grilling on the back deck. I had mentioned during booking that we had a few birthdays on our trip and there was a cake and decorations waiting for us when we arrived!!! Beyond thoughtful. 10/10!

We are so happy that you enjoyed the peace and quiet of Slaughter Beach! We love it here and are delighted when guests also find the joy!

Maureen and Tom were great and very responsive. Maureen had couple goody bags for my boys with their names on it with thoughtful gifts inside. The boys enjoyed them very much. She also brought us some cup cakes and left milk and orange juice in the fridge for us. She was there to welcome us and explain everything. The beach is across the street with public access couple houses down the street. Plenty of horse shoe crabs on the beach. We ended up going to Lewes Beach (30 mins south) to enjoy going into the water and for the 4th of July fireworks.
