About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) Many new upgrades!

Please note the house sleeps a maximum of 4 people.

Watch the sun and the moon rise over the Delaware Bay from this quiet, comfortable beachfront retreat. This easy-going cottage offers a laid-back place to celebrate life, especially for those who travel with their dogs.

Cook your favorite meals in our full kitchen, already supplied with spices and condiments, or go out to a decadent meal in one of the area's gourmet restaurants. The beach resort offers numerous activities from golf and watersports to theater and tax-free shopping, all within a few minutes' drive, but this is the place you want to call home at the end of the day.

Enjoy the romance of a candlelit evening in front of the cast-iron stove in winter, a bonfire on your private beach in summer if the wind is right, or just a simple moment of solitude wandering along the water's edge in any season. Retreat to your bedroom (one queen, one double bed) and fall asleep with the sound of the waves lapping the shore.

There's one full bath and, in summer, an outdoor shower to comfortably rinse off the salt and sand. You can also hook up a quick-connect hose to rinse off your pup with warm water.

Only two hours from Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia, yet a world away from the stress and hassles. Escape the hustle of your work week with a relaxing weekend.

Take time to rest, to play. Make time for yourself, and for those you love. Come to the Cottage at Prime Hook Beach, where we provide all the basics for your comfort.

Guests are required to bring their own linens, blankets, towels and paper/soap products.

Why Jessica Stiner chose Prime Hook Beach

** This home has had many new upgrades during the 2017 winter season.**

This cottage with a fully-glassed in porch overlooking the Delaware Bay makes you feel as if you are outdoors year-round. The open floor plan affords a view of the water from the back door, through the kitchen and living room, to the front porch.

Guests describe the feeling of tranquility that begins the moment they leave the highway and wind their way through the 5 miles of fields and forest and marshes of the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge.

Prime Hook Beach is a lovely community, close enough to upscale restaurants and tax-free shopping at the outlets, but far enough away to feel like you are in another era.

What makes this cottage unique

Having a private, sandy beach right at your front door allows you to set up your stuff for the day, and be able to easily pop in and out of the house for a cold drink, lunch, your favorite paperback, another dog toy.

When the wind is right, you can have a bonfire or just lay back and watch as the stars come out. You can take sleeping bags out to spend the night watching the mid-August sky for shooting stars or enjoy watching (from the shelter of the porch) the occasional summer thunderstorm sweep across the bay, the rain dancing on the tin roof.

Guestbook comments from the owner

[a note written from the guests' dogs to mine]

Thank you, Freddy, for sharing Cottage on the Bay with us, and for the wonderful toys. What a wonderful hostess you are. We rate it a "five-woof stay."

Thank you,

Greta, Jolie and Lucy

Great Wildlife Refuge

  • 5 of 5

Rented the place to hunker down while we toured Delaware, but got so much more. Not only did the dogs love prime Hook but so did the humans. The wildlife refuge is a gem. Saw herons and ospreys daily -- even got to see a bald eagle. The turkey vultures caught us completely by surprise.

Second Stay with our dogs

  • 5 of 5

We rarely seem to stay at the same place for vacations despite always saying we will come back. This adorable beach cottage was the exception. This was our second visit and we hope to come back again for Spring Break with our dogs for a third time next year.

It’s perfect in the off season for some much needed rest and relaxation with our fur babies. I think the dogs remembered it too when we arrived; they were so happy to be there!

Great location right on the beach in a quiet neighborhood and with off-street parking. We had to work while here, but setting up the computers and printer on the breakfast bar with a view of the water, waves, and ships and connecting to the wifi was perfect. The view was especially important since it was quite cold and windy much of the short time we were here. The heat, gas stove/fireplace, and comfortable couch and chair in the living room were great. Remember to bring sheets and towels - the info is embedded in the instructions but easy to miss or forget. We did forget, but in the nearby town there's a chain dollar-type store where we picked up an inexpensive set. There's an excellent Cajun food restaurant in the close by town of Milton that we'd highly recommend and browsing in more populated beach towns is very accessible as well. Be aware that the bathroom is very tight and might be difficult to negotiate for people with limited mobility or to help young children. We didn't have a dog with us, but are dog lovers and see that this home is set up very well to bring a well-behaved pet. We would love to return to unwind in this relaxing setting.

A Great GetAway

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Prime Hook! What a way to get away and relax. You can hear the waves lap the shore as soon as you get out of your vehicle!. Everything is situated perfectly in the house so you can enjoy the views and still maintain your privacy. Our dogs were right at home! The fence in back yard was perfect!. A little drive to shopping and restaurants. We didn't mind the drive! Already planning on next year's stay!
