About Cheryl Lynch

We had been vacationing in Lewes for years before we finally found our 'cozy cottage by the sea'. We have grown to love Lewes over the years, and have enjoyed bringing friends and showing them the charm of Second Street, and Henlopen State Park. Lewes has so many great restaurants, and the kids love to be able to walk to town, eat pizza at Half Full, and end a wonderful day at the beach with King's Ice Cream.

Cheryl Lynch purchased this house in 2005

Why Cheryl Lynch chose Lewes

The wonderful screened in back porch sold us immediately! We spend hours out there hanging out, drinking coffee, reading, and playing games. The private back yard with the beautiful flowers and trees is so relaxing. We have families who have been coming back year after year, and they feel as at home there as we do!

The kids love the upstairs bedroom with the built in beds! They hide out there, and play for hours. We love the serenity of the house, and the ability to really relax and enjoy our time there with family and friends. We have created many memories here over the years, and hope you will too.

Being in town has been wonderful - we can all walk to shopping, restaurants, and the pond a few blocks away. Lewes is a hidden gem, and close to Rehoboth, outlet shopping, and many other amenities, if you want some more fun things to do while you're here.

What makes this house unique

~ Wonderful, private screened in back porch.

~ Modern, eat in kitchen.

~ Cute kids room tucked away upstairs.

~ Cozy & comfortable.

~ Walk to town shops & restaurants

Fantastic home in great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly layed out property with several zones to relax. The bedrooms are ideally decorated and comfortable. Sure to suit everyone in your party.

The kitchen is amply supplied with condiments and cookware. Certain to meet your needs.

They are pet friendly, as well as the city itself. Great space for our pups. We brought our dog bowls, but saw they have dog supplies as well.

Nice selection of games and movies. Plenty of entertainment options in case you have some rainy days.

Highly recommend this property.

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! We had such a wonderful time - and were lucky enough to be the first people to visit since Cheryl renovated. The new bathroom is amazing! And the sitting area off of the kitchen is just lovely. From the adorable children's room which my young kids loved - to the wonderful screened in porch - to the 5 minute walk to town - this house is the best! It's clean, well stocked and clearly loved by the owners and everyone who stays. We cannot wait to return.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

I have a "don't let out the secret" feeling about this house but I'll do it anyway! This house is so thoughtfully decorated and appointed and very, very comfortable. The kids loved the upstairs bedroom with the 3 twins. We loved the big back porch. Walking distance to everything in town and a short drive to the beaches. Thank you so, so much for the stay and we're already working on a date for 2017!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much!! I'm so glad you love the house as much as we do! Wait till you see the improvements for 2017- full bath downstairs and expanded kitchen/family room with a gas fireplace! It will be even more warm and inviting. I hope you come back to see it!

Beautiful home, lots to do

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful quiet home in the heart of old Lewes. Walking distance to restaurants. We ate and slept well and enjoyed side trips to the Prime Hook National Wildlife Preserve and Cape Henlopen State Park which has an incredible beach. And if you go to Rehoboth Beach be sure to stop at Henlopen City Oyster House - the dozen oyster selection is served perfectly and deliciously. A recommendation from our friend Steve who owns Gidgets Gadgets on Rehoboth Avenue - be sure to stop there too!

Relaxing Thanksgiving Holiday in a wonderful small town

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two daughters and two goldens just returned from a great thanksgiving holiday at Cheryl's beautiful beach home. Everything was even nicer than we expected, the beds were super comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, we played games and really enjoyed the lovely screened in porch (thank you mother nature for some fabulous weather!). Cheryl was great to work with, if only all VRBO owners were so kind!!! Lewes is a very charming small town with some great restaurants, Agave, Taste of Italy, Striper Bites, Irish eyes!!! No bad meal was had and it is so great to be able to walk everywhere. We enjoyed looking at old the beautiful old homes while out walking the dogs at night too. Very safe neighborhood. We tried several beaches, Lewes, cape Henlopen and even drove to Broadkill where the dogs could go off leash. Rehoboth is close by too if you want more action. My youngest daughter loved the adorable kid's bedroom too and mom was in heaven over all the beachy decorations in the house. If I were to have a beach house, this would be it!! Thank you for a truly memorable holiday!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful words! It's a rare Thanksgiving that the weather is in the 70's and you can enjoy the porch...we're so glad it worked out for a fantastic holiday weekend.
