A true escape from the hectic, stressful world awaits you if you spend a few days at Slaughter Beach. From the living room and porch you can enjoy the sights and sounds of Delaware Bay, which is steps from your door, and is glorious at sunrise. You can step out the door and enjoy your morning coffee ON THE BEACH! At the back of the house is protected marshland which is equally as spectacular as the sun sets. Walk on the beach for miles collecting seashells and seaglass and rarely see another person, as the beach is secluded enough and large enough to allow for a quiet, tranquil walk. The flat country roads in and around Slaughter Beach are also perfect for cycling, with very little traffic. And while the beauty and uniqueness of this town lies in its opportunity to "get away from it all", you are only half an hour away from almost any kind of entertainment you could want. Rehoboth Beach and the surrounding beaches have great restaurants and shopping, while Harrington and Dover are hubs for casino gambling.
The home itself was originally one of the summer cottages that were used mostly by local people, but has been updated and added on to over the years. I rent what was the original home (as shown in the pictures) and reserve a two room addition as my personal space, which I do not occupy while guests are renting. It is not fancy, but is quite comfortable and homey. It is best suited to adults, but children and pets are welcome as well.+ More
