Private Cottage Steps to the Beach-just Four Homes Back From the Dunes & Ocean

Romantic cottage in Dewey Beach with outdoor tennis court
I have named my beach cottage La Sauterelle – French for grasshopper – in honor of the copper grasshopper weather vane that has graced the top of my beach home for many years. The grasshopper is a symbol of good luck but I do not have them in the house! This single family cottage is at the end of one of the last sandy lanes in Dewey Beach. It is only 50 yards or so back from the sand dunes, beach and ocean at the end of the street. Perfect for quick trips back and forth from the beach for lunch, snacks, refreshments or naps for the little ones. Wonderful outdoor shower. No major highway to cross in this residential area. And you can easily stroll to all the restaurants and entertainment in Dewey. Or hop the Jolly Trolley on the corner for a quick fun open-air ride into Rehoboth Beach which is just one short mile up the road. This two-story, two-bedroom, 1.5 bath home is a classic cedar-shingled cottage. Tastefully furnished combined living and dining areas, fully equipped and modern kitchen, one bedroom (queen size bed) and one full bath on the ground floor With a full washer and dryer. A side entrance leads to a wonderful outdoor shower and a weber propane gas grill. The circular staircase takes you to the loft bedroom (king size bed) on the second floor with an adjoining half bath. An entrance off the second floor leads you to a dramatic rooftop deck with upholstered patio furniture, table and umbrella. Perfect for enjoying the ocean breeze, sunset and evening cocktails. This well-maintained home features warm pine paneling throughout, tongue and groove wood ceilings, vaulted ceiling in the dining/kitchen area with skylights, gleaming hardwood floors in the living areas and in the cozy loft bedroom. The living room features ample upscale seating with one full size sofa and one love seat, Custom plantation shutters and two French doors And a propane fireplace for use during the months of September and October only. There is a small deck/stoop on the front with one dedicated parking spot on the side The home has cable TV, wifi, stereo, baseboard heating and AC. Occupancy limited to four.

Lovely beach cottage
My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend in late October. The weather was good, and we were steps away from the beach access, where we spent lovely days enjoying the surf - bring beach chairs! The cottage is charming. I loved sleeping in the loft. We opened the door to the roof deck and could hear the ocean at night. One day was rainy, and I so enjoyed the gas fireplace. So cosy.

5/5 Excellent

Charming cottage, beautifully appointed.
Wonderful find just a two minute walk from the beach. Rooftop deck and sleeping loft especially fun. Cozy yet roomy enough for three friends (who tested negative for Covid) on a getaway. Highly recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Love this cottage!
Great house, great location, and Nancy is very responsive!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely property within a short stroll from the beach.
Very lovely little beach cottage - perfect for 2-3 people which is obviously lovingly cared for. We enjoyed the roof deck, the outdoor shower and the renovated kitchen. Although it was in the midst of COVID-19 madness when we went so we didn’t go to restaurants, it’s in the middle of your choice of we’ll rated eateries. And, if you’re so inclined, walking up the beach to Rehoboth is a good hike but fun.

5/5 Excellent

Great Time
It’s a great location and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked.
