This is a small room with twin beds, a night stand with a lamp and a clothes closet. Windows on south and west walls. No a/c but it's only a mile west of the ocean and north of Rehoboth Bay, so there are constant breezes on most days. House is under a canopy of trees.

Guests must bring sheets, pillow cases and towels. Shared bathroom. WiFi available at extra cost. Ride to and from the cottage from the Washington, DC area also offered at extra charge.

Fred is a wonderful host. Kind and welcoming. Communication before arrival was easy. We where in town for one night to visit Dohfish head, and Fred even drove us in to town. The cottage and the room is simple but at this price most definately does the job.
This was my second time staying at the cottage this year. My stay was equally as great this go round.
Everything at Fred's place was (email hidden)ose to the beach and in a nice neighborhood. This was our second time staying at his cottage. We will definitely be going back again!
I'll echo what the others reviewers have already stated by saying that this was a comfortable stay close to the beach at a great price.Fred is a communicative helpful and above all nice host.I look forward to staying at the cottage again.
Great stay at the cottage! We actually had stayed in the common room prior, so we just stayed there in general. Guest room seemed nice but we had enough privacy anyway, so this was a great experience for the two of us. Thanks to Fred! He's super communicative as well, so he'll make sure everything is all good before you arrive. Would stay again for sure!
I was participating in a century to Dewey beach and was looking for a nice place to stay that wouldn't break the bank. Enter Fred's cottage. Fred was perfectly hospitable and helped with culinary recommendations. He was very friendly and while a shared cottage, we never felt our privacy intruded upon in the least. Fred's just a nice guy! Definitely recommended! Thanks Fred.

Polite and welcoming. Not intrusive and very generous with his space. No curfew, noise complaining, etc.
Only a few very reasonable restrictions: No drugs, no smoking, and leave the place as it was found.
Very good host and would recommend.

I love to entertain and hosts groups that like to party. There is a bar on the enclosed front porch. In addition to the futons and foam mattress there also is a guest bedroom (twin beds) available.
