Come and experience Herons View at Mallard Lakes for yourself. Call now for immediate booking 610-966-0167

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Heron's View home is a beautiful home and the view from the back yard was awesome. I suggest you fill the bird feeder with the seed provided by the owner, you can sit on the back porch and enjoy bird watching and it brings the ducks to the area to pick up seed dropped. This home is situated in a quiet area away from the busy OC traffic but a short drive takes you to the beaches, Assateague Island, Berlin, Rohoboth, etc. to explore.
The home had a fully equipped kitchen to make just about anything you want. The welcome book was helpful.
Take a evening walk and you'll be greeted by the friendly neighbors.
Heron's View is a comfortable, beautiful home away from home! We will definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: Ann, we're so happy you visited Herons View. Yes, the water fowl provide lots of entertainment , especially for the little ones. We look forward to welcoming you again.

Perhaps you'll visit SUNSCAPE , our other Mallard Lakes townhome, on your next visit - it's located in a different area in the community. Another guest said she enjoyed the short walk to get ice cream on a hot summer night!

"Homey" Lakefront Beach Townhouse

"Homey" Lakefront Beach Townhouse
  • 5 of 5
Very cozy and welcoming budget town home in the cute Mallard Lakes development in Fenwick Island. Literally just a two-minute drive to the beach, the owner, Pat, was a pleasure to work with from the moment we expressed interest in the property. The place is very welcoming and Pat has obviously spent a lot of time and put a great deal of thought into providing a comforting accommodation for families. When I inquired about hiring an outside linen service, she happily offered clean towels and sheets for each bed and offered the best possible price. There is a Pac-n-play, high chair, tons of beach toys and buckets, and an adorable outside shower. The amenities are practically endless too... from the pools, shuffle board, tennis courts, kayak storage (for owners), playground, lakes, birdlife, neighboring cornfields, etc. your children will not be bored and will surely sleep well. Outside of the property you will find even more offerings such as miniature golf, an attached water park and go-kart track, numerous restaurants, produce stands, and a Food Lion & Harris Teeter (my favorite!) within two miles. Fenwick Island is a fantastic year-round beach vacation destination because it sits in between the lovely, but very crowded Rehoboth & Dewey Beaches to the North and Ocean City, MD to the South. We're so pleased to have taken a chance with Heron's View and Fenwick Island.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Paulette, for that lovely review! ( did you see the vineyard next to that cornfield? ) Yes, Fenwick Island State Park is less crowded and offers hot showers, restrooms and a great concession with the BEST beach fries ever! We usually see dolphins straight out from the beach there too. We're so happy you chose HERONS VIEW. Maybe next time, you'll visit SUNSCAPE, our other Mallard Lakes property. Safe trip home! Best, Pat

A fabulous home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous vacation home - exactly as described! A beautiful, relaxing, spacious place (the skylight in the bathroom was the icing on the top). With lake-views from the living room and sunroom, and a large swimming pool within walking distance and Fenwick State Park beaches less than 10 minutes drive away - it couldn't have been more perfect.
Our perfect family vacation started long before we got there - when our vacation dates had to change, after we had confirmed our reservation, Pat saved the day and was able to switch our reservation to accommodate our new dates. On arrival, a welcome binder explained all we needed to know about the facilities, including suggestions for restaurants, and places to visit - a fully equipped kitchen allowed us to prepare meals to suit our taste. Our days started with breakfast in the sunroom, watching the birds, ducks, geese (and sometimes, a heron!). Then, time at the beach (umbrellas and chairs to rent, discounted multi-day passes), kayaking (Coastal kayaks across from the entrance to the Fenwick State Park beach entrance was fantastic), swimming at the complex, etc. We loved exploring nearby Bethany Beach, Ocean City, and took a drive up to Lewes near Rehoboth Beach, enjoying the Hopkins Dairy creamery ice cream (what a bargain!) and the nearby vineyards.
I would highly recommend this vacation home and look forward to a future return!

Get ready to RELAX!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 recently stayed at Heron's View. It was one of the best vacations our family has taken to date. We were happy to find only about a 5 min trip to our favorite beach at Fenwick state park beach without the need to travel through the heavy traffic areas we usually encounter when staying in OC Maryland. Many amenities provided by the owners. My 6 year old son was very exited that amongst the other board games provided he learned and we played several rounds of Battleship. Directly out the back door we spent our evenings relaxing while overlooking the lake complete with water fountain. We were even visited by a few Herons, Geese and ducks. Back to work this week, feeling revived and relaxed!!

Owner's Response: Yes, relaxing on the patio overlooking the lake is one of our favorite things to do at HERONS VIEW too.

( and in addition to less traffic, NO sales tax on anything in DE:)

We look forward to welcoming you & your family back to HERONS VIEW, Dominic!
