Cozy, romantic, adorable getaway cottage

  • 5 of 5

On a whim, I booked the Mermaid Cottage for one night over the weekend b/c I needed to walk on the beach, hear the waves and gulls and smell the salt air. In spite of the horrid name, Slaughter Beach is a laid-back, undeveloped stretch of houses on or across the street from the beach. The cottage is clean and adorable with a back yard, fenced in front yard, and right on the beach.

Would love to stay here another time for an entire week.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is adorable inside. We knew it was pet friendly prior to renting but the amount of animal hair on every surface, especially the couches, was pretty awful. It would have been much better if the furniture had been cleaned, vaccumed before new renters came in but otherwise very clean. The path down to the water is very narrow with prickly plants overgrown on it. And I'd like to mention how terrible the horseshoe flies were! We couldn't stay outside for more than 20 minutes, even with bug spray and the closer to the water the worse it got!

The location however is excellent. We spend half the time in Dover visiting museums. The Air Mobility Museum was amazing, free and only about 25-30 minutes away. In the opposite direction about 25 minutes was a boardwalk and Cape Henlopen State Park which was an awesome find. $10 for the day with bike trails, swimming in the ocean, activity center and tons of history from WW2 with a lot of massive guns and look out towers!

Overall we would definitely return.

Perfectly lovely.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the cute and cozy cottage was awesome. Clean and comfortable to relax with our doggies in between trips to the beach and boardwalk. The attractions are close enough to enjoy and the local wildlife and scenery is stunning. Thanks for a wonderful trip.

Quiet, clean, relaxing, enjoyable and air conditioned(!) place

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with our recent stay. Everything was as advertised: very clean, quiet, private, dog friendly, and cool inside. It was exactly what my family and I were looking for when we stayed recently at Slaughter Beach. There really was not anything the place was lacking.

We would definitely stay here again and in fact, plan on doing so next year. Hoping though next year we get some slightly cooler temperatures outside!!

Nicest and cleanest little cottage one could imagine. Sun rises directly off Slaughter beach!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic cottage. I will stay here again next year again. So relaxing, clean and cozy. The photos don't do this place justice. The inside is a must see.
