Guestbook comments from the owner

Nancy, Despite Joaquin's threats, Jim and I had a wonderful vacation in Lewes, dividing our time between kayaking in lower Delaware and biking at Cape Henlopen. 3 Newark suited our needs! Thanks for opening your home to us. Have a wonderful Holiday Season.

Perfect fall get-away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have used 3 Newark Avenue, Lewes as a home base for the past several years for a fall vacation of kayaking and hiking. This year we had perfect weather as we explored the Pocomoke River, the Broadkill River, and our favorite - Trussum Pond. All were totally wild and secluded. We also loved hiking the trails at Cape Henlopen State Park, where the beach, sunsets, and full moon-rises were amazing. The cottage at 3 Newark was clean, comfortable, quiet, and fully equipped. We've stayed there 3 years and fully intend to return next fall. Thank you, Nancy for sharing your home.

Perfect for our group

  • 5 of 5

Everyone enjoyed the cottage and it's convenient location. The upstairs seating area was perfect for our group when we gathered after dinner. It was a short walk to the beach, and to local eateries and entertainment.

Only suggestion we had was a bug light by the doors to deter the dive bombers at night.

Comfortable Home, Great Customer Service

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for girls weekend Friday-Sunday. This home is very conveniently located close to the beach and Cape Henlopen State Park, which we loved (Beach, Hiking, Biking). We also loved the little town for shopping and food- we went to Kindle (very good) and Gilligan's (nice atmosphere on the deck) for lunch and take out from A Touch of Italy. The kitchen is well provisioned, great patio in the back to hang out. My first trip to Lewes and I will definitely return to this quaint little town.

A perfect rental experience

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you need. Quiet street in a nice part of town. It isn't ON the beach, but you are only 4 or 5 houses down from the beach and it is super easy access. I have a toddler and it was close enough to go back to the house for potty breaks, etc. with no hassle. The beach itself is in a residential area / no hotels or condos. Most mornings and evenings we had the beach to ourselves. Even when it was "busy" the closest people were 30-40 feet away. Would recommend to anyone and we'll be back for sure. Owner is super easy to work with as well.

Beautiful clean location so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The location is unbeatable as far as proximity to the beach goes. The beach wasn't even crowded most days - though one night a few gnats wouldn't leave us alone by the ocean.

The rental house was rather small for me and my five family members, but it housed us quite well. I was impressed with the amenities - it is even more up to date than the photographs. The neighborhood is peaceful and there are quite a few nice shops close by on Second Street. Would definitely book here again if I were to return to Lewes!
