New spacious suite with views all around on private beach and ocean
As an artist, I find the beauty that surrounds Well Rock Cottage inspiring. I've had a long career in the graphic arts, beginning as a package designer for Hasbro Toys, a premium products inventor, a freelance illustrator, a footwear designer and now, a full-time photographer. I have a studio in Well Rock Cottage and even though I'd love to be kayaking and swimming every day, I do have to work and often spend long (but enjoyable) hours in my studio-interrupted by enjoyable walks with my dog Bruce and my camera (for capturing the stunning scenery!)
Owner purchased this House in 1936
Why Owner chose Scituate
This property came in to my family in 1936 when my grandmother purchased Well Rock Cottage, from her cousin. My father inherited this property from his mother when I was 13 years old and we began spending our summers here. In 1978 the infamous Blizzard of '78 hit this town with a vengeance that hasn't been experienced since, and the beach eroded below the footings of our hand dug pilings. Having lost it's support, the old Well Rock Cottage fell in to the waves and was torn apart. My parents loved this spot and decided to rebuild, but due to building codes were required to build a year round home on pilings. My family enjoyed the New Well Rock Cottage. Living on the beach year round was amazing and during the summers, our children swam, and played and flipped rocks looking for crabs. My dad passed away first, and my mom continued to live here, feeding the birds, welcoming her grandchildren to her beach and was in her nineties when she passed away leaving Well Rock Cottage to me. I'm not sure why she made the choice for me have our family beach home, but I'd like to think it was because she always felt that I was happiest here, just as my grandmother used to be.
What makes this House unique
The unique benefits of Well Rock Cottage is that it's directly on the beach and surrounded by stunning rock formations that protect it during our winter storms, and also add a dramatic beauty to every day. Well Rock Cottage is also located in a neighborhood where many of us have known each other's families for generations. it's a unique area, with a friendly, beachy vibe full of people who all love this stretch of sand and ocean.

I’d stay at her place again
This is a beautiful spot!. The accommodations were great and Delia is the perfect hostess. She does everything she can to make you feel welcomed and that your stay is the best it can be.
I would highly recommend others to stay here.
My husband & I celebrated our Anniversary this past weekend in Scituate, at Delia’s Delightful beach house, on Minot Beach. Everything about the stay was perfect - the location was amazing, our suite was light and airy with all the comforts of home. Comfortable bed, clean linens, large shower and right on the beach.
I’m pretty sure Delia even had a hand in the spectacular weather 😎�. We will be back to visit Delia & adorable Bruce !!!
Perfect stay on the beach!
We loved our stay with Delia. Everything was as expected and more- it was perfect! Super clean, comfortable. One of the best sites on the beach in Scituate. We cannot wait to visit Delia again and her dog Bruce was a complete sweetheart! Thank you Delia for opening your home to us:)
Wonderful oceanfront getaway!!
We really enjoyed our mini vacation by the ocean! We had a wonderful 5 day/4 night trip to this beautiful place. Our main reason for heading to Scituate was to attend a nearby wedding and I thought it would be great to extend our time and be by the ocean. What a treat and what a view from our windows! So wonderful to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean and wake with the sun rising over the ocean . My husband and I and our dog Logan loved walking on the beach each day. We also enjoyed some of the great outdoor restaurants by the marinas . Delia was more like a hostess than a VRBO owner and gave us great ideas and was very helpful and gracious throughout our stay. Her dog Bruce was adorable. Thanks Delia!!
We had a wonderful experience. Delia was very informative and responsive to all of our questions. She has a unique talent of being there to answer all of your questions, while giving you all the privacy you need. The view is an amazing treat to wake up to and the sound of the waves crashing at night make for a relaxing evening. We walked the beach every night. The neighborhood was very quiet. I now understand the prior reviews about Delia’s dog Bruce - he is such a sweet treat and put a smile on my face the whole time. There are so many great things to do within 15 minutes of the property. Our favorites were walking around “worlds end” land trust and dinner at Alma Nove, both about 20 minutes away in Hingham.
