Charming 1880's cottage, with 12 foot ceilings and over-sized windows, has been lovingly maintained and updated with HVAC and disposal, washer/dryer to complement ceiling fans and clothesline. Outside shower and sunporch/mudroom make this beach living easy, comfortable and reminiscent of yesteryear's life style. Boardgames abound and the VCR is now attached to a contemporary screen for easy mobility (historical rainy day tape library has been expanded by guests so bring your favorites and feel free to make donations)and facile adaption to your portable DVD player and DVD's
On the Jolley Trolley line, midway between the Rehoboth boardwalk and the Rusty Rudder, with bikes (four to five) available to you, park the car and walk for the week (bring your own helmets). Rickshaw type bicycle taxis now active all summer driving right by on the bike path lane.
Family living is encouraged with spacious eat-in kitchen (floor to ceiling windows) and banquet sized table hidden in livingroom cabinet. This is a beach cottage that encourages 'Relaxing' and sharing time with those you enjoy. Pack that pile of books and magazines and come on down Sunday PM to Sunday AM and avoid most of the traffic!!
AS young mothers in 1980 my best friend and I shared a week in this cottage and every summer following until we could afford a week each (then we both went for both) with our no longer toddlers..in 1998 tho old babes that owned it decided to sell and we feared they'd sell to a non-renting family SO we put our pennies together with my oldest by then an officier in the USMC and we purchased and continued to rent to the same families--now we are the old babes and the grandchildren of the first wave are renting from us..Won't you join us and visit our Green Granny Cottage for an old-fashioned summer vacation--a walk to the beach, bird watch, barbeque, catch fireflys and 'kick-the-can' on the cul-de-sac.
This is ideal for walkers-Silver Lake is a wildbird refuge one street away, or at the end of our cul-de-sac--you can walk north on the beach and shortly reach the beginning of the Boardwalk that leads to the Amusements and Beach treats galore or you can walk south following the side walk and reach the Rusty Rudder for Sunset on the bay drinks, live music and a chance to dance reggae with a toddler, your teen or gramps...as well as the tanned and terrific...plus the jolley trolley and the bike taxis go right by the street corner on which we sit.
The most wonderful benefit is the sea air filling up the 12 ft ceilinged rooms and the ceiling fans, and the 10 ft windows,screened (or shut for the central air) just providing a light feeling away from the ringing of phones (if you turn them off) and the demands of the non-family work a day world. Here you can shop the discounts or sit and read listening to the ocean or build sand castles or just walk the ocean edge...it is very restful and convenient enough to the activity centers, water parks, golf, bumper cars etc for the young and the restless to entertain themselves in safety protected by a walking constabulary which seems to employ ALL the local young people/teens not occupied as lifeguards or in the shops and restaurants. Its a treat to visit a simpler place and time.
walking, reading, reflecting, sharing your time and your thoughts
