Even though Lewes is a small town, we have many wonderful restaurants. Stripper Bites, Jerry's Seafood, Second Street Grille, Agave, Gilligans, and The Buttery are just a few right downtown. To satisfy your sweet tooth, try Lewes Bakery, and of course Dairy Queen, King's Ice Cream, Two Dips, and the Chocolate Factory.
I spent many summers in Dewey when I was younger and had always wondered what Lewes had to offer. Now I know that this place truly is a great treasure. The beach is lovely, the bay water is calm enough for our small children to enjoy, the town is charming and it is close enough to Rehoboth for a quick jaunt to Funland. We love jogging and biking around Cape Henlopen Park especially enjoyed climbing the tower. We also really like the little playground near the Overfalls. The cottage was great and we had a perfect time. We are all refreshed and ready to do great things at home. Thanks so much for a wonderful time.
Above expectations! Best way to describe where VRBO list review tips and guidelines we would answer YES YES!! to all. Hope to continue returning. Sorry for delay in writing review, busy with many positive events. See you in Sept.2015!!!!
The cottage was super clean, well appointed and really is just over the dune from the beach. It is also within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops in downtown Lewes. We highly recommend Irish Eyes and DaVinci's! This is a great cottage for a small family with young kids. Can't say enough nice things about it.
This was one of the absolutely best vacation rentals we have ever enjoyed! Our experience from the beginning of the rental process through our departure was absolutely seamless! The cottage is spotless and has every amenity one could want. We happened to be there during one of the summer's hottest weeks and the central A/C was blessedly welcomed. We especially enjoyed the comfortable screened porch and the very roomy outdoor shower. The kitchen had everything we needed on the occasions when we ate at home, and we enjoyed grilling in the large backyard!
We were literally steps away from a gorgeous beach on the bay side and it was so great to have that convenience right there.
We look forward to returning and spending more time at this wonderful cottage. It has everything and more to make a vacation really wonderful!!
Thanks, Nancy and Andy, for your very gracious hospitality!
We very much enjoyed our week at the cottage. It is very close to the beach, which helps when you are traveling with children - just a short walk over the dunes. It's about a 15 to 20 minute walk into town. We loved the front porch and enjoyed our coffee outside every morning, and my son loved playing on the porch. There is a bevvy of local menus in the property for carry out and such, which was very helpful. When I arrived I walked around the property unsure if I was at the right place, there is no house number visible and it is appended to another house, so it was a bit confusing. The setup of the house is perfect for parents with kids because the kids' bedroom is in the back of the house, separated from the TV room.
Perfect place for our first time staying in Lewes. Very quiet setting in clean, well maintained house good for small family like ours. Bay side of beach was nice for walks and learning about horseshoe crabs. Nearby Henlopen State Park and beach was great for swimming. We hope to return.
Very clean, cozy beach cottage was as described. The guestbook was neat to read - told some of the memories made at the cottage. Nice proximity to the beach and downtown section of Lewes. Great for a small family/group looking to relax.
