Rehoboth Beach is only 3 miles south of Lewes so you can take the family for a walk on the boardwalk or take the kids to Funland for a night of rides and fun.

Even though Lewes is a small town, we have many wonderful restaurants. Stripper Bites, Jerry's Seafood, Second Street Grille,Agave,Irish Eyes, Gilligans and The Buttery are just a few right downtown. To satisfy your sweet tooth, try Lewes Bakery, and of course Dairy Queen, Kings Ice Cream. Two Dips, and the Chocolate Factory.
We had a great time this week and lucked out with beautiful weather! The location is great and the house suited our needs well. One suggestion would be to provide more staples. We needed trash bags, and toilet paper. It would also be nice to have some beach chairs provided. Thanks for opening your home to us. We had a great time. We are also leaving a few extra Funland tickets for the next folks to use. Our son especially enjoyed the kiddie rides!
Very cute cottage had plenty of room for me and my two teens. Place was very clean and had well-stocked, modern kitchen. It does not have an oven, take note! With the exception of the kitchen, the decor and furnishings are basic, not modern, but comfortalbe and supplied everything we needed at a very good rate. The house is a closer walk to the beach than we expected, and Lewes Beach is not crowded. Safe neighborhood for walking; several ice cream and deli places within a 10 minute walk. You would have to drive into Lewes itself, but it is a very picturesque town! Accommodations are up a small flight of stairs, as pictured. "Downstairs" area is locked and not furnished (we peeked thru the windows), so no worries about sharing with anyone else. Outside shower was very helpful for trips back from beach. Owner was considerate and helpful. Would definitely recommend.
We just enjoyed an amazing week long stay at this great beach house in Lewes. It was exactly as described and pictured, so clean, and unbelievely convenient. Literally one block to the beach, which was a must for us with two kids. The beach was awesome, so quiet and no high waves which was perfect for young kids.
The living room, which is basically a sun room, had awesome light and felt so open with all the windows (12, I think). We enjoyed sitting out on the back deck each night after the kids went to bed, and being able to hear the ocean waves.
We took a trip to Cape Henlopen State Park, which was so close by and loved that they had free bike rentals from the Nature Center there. They even had kid carrier options, which was fantastic.
And it was only about a 10 minute drive to Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk, which was also lots of fun.
For good Mexican food, check out Agave in downtown Lewes. Kings Icecream was great too. Kohr's Frozen Custard in Rehoboth was delicious. And check out The Fractured Prune for amazing donuts.
Nancy was so easy to deal with, everything was so clear and straight forward. This was our first family beach trip and it won't be our last due to the great time we had and the ease and peacefulness in Lewes. We definitely plan to be back next year!
A very good base to explore the area. Lewes town is 5 minutes by car or a pleasant 20 min walk. Ideal for a couple or with a small child--the beach is very handy. Recent refit of kitchen nice and smart.Only reservation is that 2nd bedroom has no aircon and can get warm in July.We will certainly come back
We were in Lewes the week of April, 19 - 25. We found this property to be perfect for our vacation stay. It's one block from the beach and very close to down town Lewes or Cape Henelopen State Park.
The house is clean and neat. The large living room is great for relaxing after a day at the beach or shopping.
Yhe owners are great to deal with and very accomodating.
We will see you again.

I've stayed at this cottage several times and enjoyed the spacious yet cozy feel. It's very comfortable and the fact that there is a washer/drier in the unit is extremely convenient. Each time I've rented there have been improvements; the owners are located in the area and are very accommodating. It is only a block from the Delaware Bay and close to the quaint downtown area. Excellent vacation house and location for families.
I have stayed in Lewes for many years and I stayed in the cute cozy unit last summer. The outside does not do it justice. I really like the front room with all of the windows. It is very comfortable and the owners have informed me when I rented again this year that they are putting in a brand new kitchen. The fact that it has a full size washer and dryer right in the hallway is fantastic because I have a 4 year old little girl. It is very beachy and the location is great since it is a hop skip and a jump from the beach. IF I needed anything the owners were very accomidating and they even gave me great places to take my daughter and great places to eat. See you in August.
Bike or walk to downtown shops in Lewes or enjoy a day exploring Cape Henlopen State Park. The park has nature trails, bike and jogging trails, Nature Center and extensive wetlands, along with a beautiful beach with lifeguards and bath house. For a change of pace, Rehoboth is only 3 miles away. Take the family for a night on the boardwalk and amusement park. There are numerous golf courses just minutes away. So use your imagination and enjoy your stay in beautiful and quiet Lewes Beach.
