I won’t go into swimsuits, there are plenty of sites and blogs that go into better detail than I can on the subject. A word of warning for children’s feet! You will want a good pair of pool shoes for wading or swimming at the beach. Rehoboth Beach sand is great however as you enter the surf you will notice some parts of the shore have lot of broken shells and larger pebbles. Some parts of the beach are fine sand and can quickly turn into rougher terrain. Young children with tender feet can benefit from wearing snug fitting pool shoes to protect against rough shells, hot sand and the occasional jellyfish.
The cottage sits just a few yards from the stairway that takes you to the family pool on the upper deck of the main hotel.
There are many charming features within the cottage like built-ins, crown and baseboard molding, wood plantation shutters. I love the effort the owners made to combine coastal and classic features within the decor. The Bellmoor does not show pictures of the bathrooms in the cottage ...for good reason....they are tiny... however, we found them to be functional and inconspicuous.
Guest over six feet tall will find a couple of areas where they need to watch their heads (the stairs up to the second floor, the second floor powder room). The first floor full bath was fine for our needs ( the tallest of us being 6'2"), however it may not be comfortable for big and tall family members who prefer lots of elbow room.
Beautiful hardwood floors, built in bookshelves, chest of drawers and closets capture the charm of antebellum era decor.
