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 parents, 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

We purchased this property primarily to provide the same opportunities my parents provided for us over the past 40 years to our family of now three young men. 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.

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!

Repeat Ladies Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The 8 of us found this property just as impressive as it was in 2015! Kitchen has everything you need…and more, beds are still very comfortable, screened-in porch just the spot for early AM coffee or late afternoon cocktails and a good book. Oh, and is it stocked with good books, games, etc!!

Great location too….5 minute walk to beach, 5 minutes to a farmers market for fresh produce and a beautiful 10 minute walk to Rehoboth around Silver Lake. Weather was so much better this time around….no need for outlet shopping or restaurants….just beach and eating in on Carolina Street!

Anyone can tell the owners take pride in exceeding expectations. We’ll be back, Brian…Thanks so much for everything!

Wonderful house and renters, will stay again!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a girls weekend and it was perfect. They have everything you need except for your food and beverages. It's a 5 minute walk from the beach and a 15 minute walk to the bar area. Brian was wonderful in answering all of my questions. I will 100% rent again!
