Photos and Description of the Slaughter Beach vacation cottage rental

Totally renovated mid-century modern beach front house built in 1966

This home was completely renovated in 2015 and available for the first time on the Slaughter Beach rental market. 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom cottage directly on the sand with panoramic views of the Delaware Bay and Prime Hook and Milford Neck Wildlife Refuge. Brand new retro appliances with granite counter tops and dishwasher/washer/dryer in kitchen. Large deck and hot tub with water and marsh views. Kitchen and bathrooms are completely new and updated. Great location for people who love the outdoors and nature. Quiet resort living at its best! Bike or jog for miles with very little road traffic. Very Dog friendly town with no restrictions for beach access. Dover, Rehoboth, Dewey and Lewes are less than 30 minutes away. Great place to stay if you are attending Firefly Music Festival or doing the Dogfish Head Brewery Tour or even Punkin Chunkin in Dover! AS of June 4, 2015 this home is now a Certified Wildlife Habitat in the National Wildlife Federations Garden for Wildlife program. ***PLEASE ASK ABOUT OUR REPEAT RENTER DISCOUNT OF $100 FOR 7 DAYS OR $50 FOR 4 OR LESS DAYS!****

Slaughter Beach

Slaughter Beach has just been made a certified wildlife sanctuary by NWF. Property is moments from the Dupont Nature Center and sits within the boundaries of a wildlife and migratory bird sanctuary. The beach is a natural beach and not GROOMED as the resort ocean beaches are. We prefer it that way as we are a horseshoe crab sanctuary. While sunbathing and building sand castles on the beach is always available, there are certain times of the year that swimming isn't ideal in Slaughter Beach as the bay bottom becomes more muddy than sandy. Children will love collecting sea shells, looking at horseshoe crabs and watching red knots, heron, egrets and osprey fly overhead. This location is a bird watchers dream! There are many activities for the kids - water parks and putt putt golf in Rehoboth Beach which is 20-25 minutes away. For the adults, there are scores of fabulous restaurants in Lewes (15-20 minutes away) as well as outlet shopping in Rehoboth and Dover Downs Casino and Nascar racetrack to the north (30 minutes). Take the tour of Dogfish Head Brewery Tour a short distance away in MIlton, DE. A short drive into town (Milford) and there is a wonderful farmers market on Saturday morning on Walnut Street plus you can walk the length of the Riverwalk for a beautiful view of the Mispillion River. A newly installed dog park just opened last year adjacent to the Riverwalk and Milford now has its own brewery - Mispillion River Brewery. It is an adorable town with lots of shopping. I always recommend guests bring bikes (though we have a few available) as the biking is the best part of Slaughter Beach - you can ride on flat terrain for miles either north or south with very little automobile traffic. Before traveling to our little piece of heaven, please spend a few minutes researching the horseshoe crab and its roll in the eco system of the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean. They are a fascinating creature!
