We often walk to McCabe's Gourmet Market in the morning to pick up breakfast and coffee to begin our day or cheese and appetizers to enjoy later in the afternoon while relaxing on our deck. Next to McCabe's is a place that will outfit you with what you need for a day of fishing or crabbing. We love to go crabbing, come back to steam them, and then dig in! There's Old Bay seasoning, a large pot, and mallets that we have stocked in the kitchen so you can do the same!
A state park is just a short 5 minute stroll down the beach. Also, there's a canal and some wildlife refuges nearby perfect for fishing, crabbing and boating. Small boats, kayaks and canoes have easy assess to launching at the canal.
The town of Bethany Beach is within walking distance (along the beach or road) with many fine restaurants, shops, arcades, and boardwalk. Stick around for some great evening outdoor concerts at the band shell on the boardwalk.
If it's more action and nightlife you're after, head just a few minutes north (to Dewey Beach or Rehoboth Beach) or south (Ocean City, MD) for tons of options from championship golf courses, mini-golf, shopping (great tax-free outlet shopping in Rehoboth Beach), restaurants, amusement parks, arcades, and nightlife galore.

About The Owner
We bought this house because we both love the beach and wanted a place to enjoy fun family times with our children and extended family. The location was key because we wanted to wake up every morning on the beach and fall asleep listening to the waves outside. We find the wide sandy beach perfect because it is relaxing without the crowds and noise of bigger beach communities. The house is located on a quiet street perfect for walking and biking and just two blocks from Route 1 that connects you with other beach towns like Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach (20 minutes north) and Ocean City, MD (20 minutes south) offering plenty of shopping (outlet shopping in Rehoboth), restaurants, amusement parks, mini-golf, championship golf courses, nightlife, and more!
The Owner purchased this house in 1997
Guestbook comments from the owner
We enjoyed our stay here very much. I appreciated the large open family room and dining area opening onto the deck, the ample parking, and the steps down to the sand next to the dune crossing. The five bedrooms and the loft area can accommodate a large group comfortably. We plan to return next year!
