We've been coming to Lewes for well over 20 years and absolutely love it here. It's a special town and well-kept secret. When our children were young we found Lewes Beach to be the perfect sand-castle building spot. Now that they are older, they still enjoy the beach but also take full advantage of the kayaking, fishing, bicycling and shopping options around town. We never run out of things to do or places to explore in Lewes. When we need a little more hustle-bustle we head over to Rehoboth for the boardwalk (Funland is the favorite boardwalk attraction) but we are always very happy to return to Lewes.

Christine Rich purchased this house in 2012

On one of my early trips to Lewes I noticed this house, and more importantly all the fun that people were having on the porch, and fell in love with it immediately. It just looked like a fun, comfortable place to be, and it became my dream to own a place like this. When this very house was listed for sale it was truly a dream come true, and I am absolutely thrilled to be able to share this special home with others.

I want to make this special house comfortable and inviting for all who visit it. We've furnished it with a combination of lovely antiques and high-end new furniture. We always welcome your feedback in order to make the home even better, but we are confident you will enjoy your stay.

We came to Lewes for a family wedding, and this home provided us the perfect opportunity to reconnenct with our different family members staying with us from all over the US. Christine, the owner, was so easy to work with - incredibly responsive and accommodating. The home was charming and spacious - it surpassed our expectations. The home is right in the center of town, a very close walk to shops and restaurants, and only a mile or so away from the beach. We loved it - and everyone is still raving about what a great time we had. I would definitely recommend staying here. Thank you Christine!

We had a great time. It all worked out for all members of our family. A nice location, close to the center of Lewes and not too far from the beach.

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE!!!

"The Pink Lady" is a beautiful home. The decor is all upscale and VERY detailed. The wrap around porch is great to sit out on and enjoy your cup of coffee in the morning. And it is only two blocks north of the main strip in Lewes where you'll find several shops, restaurants and the best homemade icecream.

It is located on a quiet street, which made for a peaceful weekend. We will definitely rent the Pink Lady again.

The owner is very responsive and always responded to our questions in a timely manner. The postcards were a nice a touch as well.

Mother/Daughter Weekend

Our stay at the "Pink Lady" could not have been any better for our annual Mother/Daughter Weekend. The home is absolutely beautiful, with all the charm and comfort needed for all 9 of us. The walking distance to shopping and restaurants was perfect and it helped to have a market right around the corner as well. The owner, Chris, was more than helpful in every way. So much so that I couldn't wait to call her once we entered the home to tell her how beautiful everything was and how I may want to move in!! The master bedroom was the biggest bonus and rocking on the chairs on the front porch was lovely. I, as well as all of my family members, truly loved our stay and hope to return in the future!

We stayed for a long weekend at The Pink Lady and it is stunning. Every room was decorated beautifully. The attention to detail in this Victorian was gorgeous and the location to downtown Lewes ideal. Would highly recommend this house!

Map

Car: not necessary

Lewes is a very special town, sometimes called the Nantucket of Delaware. As the 'first town in the first state' of the US, Lewes is a town of historical significance, but the best parts of Lewes are what is found today: wonderful restaurants, great local small-town shops, canal-front parks, and of course the beach. We especially enjoy 'Agave' a very popular Mexican restaurant on Second Street, and the local coffee shop (Lewes Bake Shoppe), and our son can often be seen enjoying a fine cup of tea while reading the day away at Cafe Azafran.

Another wonderful thing about Lewes is that you can enjoy both bay and ocean beaches because the town is situated where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. Just across the Canal you will find Lewes Beach, a wonderfully accessible beach with plentiful parking and shower/restroom facilities for your convenience. From the house you can easily walk or bicycle to the beach. It's a great beach for young children.

If you prefer stronger waves, Cape Henlopen State Park is just down the road -- we usually bicycle to it. There's a large bathhouse for changing before you enter the beach. There is also a very charming Nature Center with hands-on activities for the kids, and free bicycles for your use if you need them. The bike path around the State Park takes you past the historic Henlopen Lighthouse and the site of U.S. army bunkers that were built along the coast to spot enemy ships in 1941. The 5193-acre park contains a wealth of natural beauty. In addition to the attractive bay and ocean beaches, the Gordon's Pond Wildlife Area features a unique saltwater inpoundment. Hiking trails and interpretive displays throughout the park help visitors to learn about the fascinating natural features found at Cape Henlopen State Park.

Finally, for lots of waves, people, and boardwalk fun Rehoboth Beach is just a short drive away.
