Where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. Reserve this 1860's Victorian home for your vacation, and park your car. Walk to the Bay Beach, fine dining at the canal restaurants, and shopping and restaurants in downtown Lewes.
Your vacation home is located mid-way between the Delaware Bay and the Lewes Rehobeth Canal. It has unequalled history and character. It's located in the path of battle of the war of 1812, when the British War ships were firing from Bay on the town of Lewes, and the towns people were firing back at the ships in the Bay. A cannonball was found on the site in 1984. Additionally, the house is situated next to the formerly, infamous 'Miss Lil's.' A bawdy house employing ladies of the evening.
The home (not Miss Lil's) is fully-equipped, eat-in kitchen, dining room for eight, and woodstove for autumn lovers. The three bedrooms are as follows: One bedroom had a brand new queen sized bed and headboard, the other bedroom has a full bed, with attached TV and reading room, and the third bedroom has a bunkbed, full on bottom and single on top, which kids love. Please bring appropriate bed linens, paper products, etc.
