Two tandem kayaks and several bicycles are supplied. Running/ biking trails go for miles along the coastal highway - very well marked and segregated from vehicular traffic.

Never Disappoints

  • 5 of 5

We are so fortunate to have found a property, no a home, as wonderful as this one to enjoy repeat summer family vacations. We just enjoyed vacation number 9, I think, at Helen's Cottage. I don't believe we have ever said, "Oh, I wish they had this or I wish they had that," because it's there. This is truly a place you can bring your clothes, your bathing suit and food and that's all you need. Beach chairs, boogie boards, kayaks, crock pots, wine glasses, ice maker, the list is endless! The house is wonderful, clean, beautiful views, fully appointed, incredible decks, definitely a place for a large family group. The neighborhood is great, close enough to the all the people traffic but far enough away that you can enjoy quiet peaceful evenings. The beach choices are endless, drive on, walk on, go into Bethany proper, bayside, oceanside, it's impossible to be unhappy here. Rehoboth and Ocean City are close enough yet just far enough away. Cherie, the owner, is fantastic. She responds quickly to concerns or needs before, during and after your stay. I feel like we're friends without having ever really meeting her in person. We highly recommend this home without hesitation. We are extremely grateful it has been "ours" to enjoy for so many years!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

"Helen's Cottage" was the perfect fit for our family. The amenities were top of the line and were made fully accessible to us. The accommodations were first class and spotless. The kids and their dad's loved fishing, crabbing and kayaking in the canals and we all loved the privacy of the beach. It was unanimous that we found the perfect spot for our vacation!

Helen's Cottage - excellent home to enjoy a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time in 3 years we have had a family reunion at Helen's cottage. To say we all (10 total) had a truly enjoyable stay would be an understatement. The home is perfect for a large family to gather, talk, play games or relax with a good book in solitude somewhere on the 3 different outside decks.

The sleeping facilities were perfect and the many bathrooms provided privacy one needs with a large group, especially with the beach so close. The large kitchen provided all of the family "chefs" with ample room to demonstrate their skills, while providing a large table for all to gather at the end of each day for a little wine and good conversation.

The cottage has all of the comforts of home and then some. With bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, BBQ, and more everyone found the perfect activity even on rainy days(1) to keep themselves happy.

With only one little hiccup(the elevator malfunctioned) the owner was quick with a repairman and all was back to normal.

We all would highly recommend this home to all and will plan on staying here again in the future.
