About MMC Properties

Family of five from Bethesda, MD

MMC Properties purchased this cottage in 2001

Why MMC Properties chose World

The beach was highly reminiscent of Cape Cod Bay, in our original home state.

What makes this cottage unique

Walk in 1-2 minutes to an incredible Delaware Bay beach, recreation galore with swimming, biking, running in a quiet, uncrowded resort. We've enjoyed spectacular sunsets and moon risings here. Just watching the Cape May Ferry, outlined in small white lights, slouch away from Lewes in the sunset afterglow we consider a unique benefit. You will undoubtedly find your own benefits in this special environment. Walk to the Dairy Queen, Striper Bites, Kindle, Gate House Bistro, Half-Full, Agave, Nectar Cafe and Juice Bar, and many other local attractions. Drive or bike to Cape Henlopen for Atlantic Ocean surf and remarkable wildlife (especially deer). Great outlet shopping (with no Delaware sales tax!) is 10-15 minutes away by car.

Perfect beach vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This quintessential beach cottage was perfect for our family vacation. We loved the breezy screened-in-porch which faces a row of pines, maple, cape myrtle and rose-of-sharon. The backyard is perfect for croquet or bocce. We walked to Lewes Beach every morning (1 block) and drove to Cape Henlopen State Park (5 minutes) every afternoon to enjoy the bigger waves of the open Atlantic and the hiking trails through the dunes the pines trees. We also enjoyed the dolphin watch boat trip from Fisherman’s wharf and beautiful historic Lewes. Over the 7 days we identified 67 bird species, saw lots of dolphins, and even spotted a red fox on the dunes. The kitchen had every utensil we needed and we found a stash of games for the one rainy evening. With so much to see and do the week flew by. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

Great beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at 603 Cedar Street in Lewes. This is the first time we stayed in this cottage, and we really loved it. We liked the open living room, dining room and kitchen space; and the furniture throughout the cottage was very comfortable. The three bedrooms and two bathrooms were clean and spacious, as well. The cottage included a much-appreciated washer and dryer. We also enjoyed the large, screened in porch. The outdoor shower was a great size, with good water pressure and hooks to hang towels/clothing. Most importantly, the cottage is located only one block from the beach and is an easy walk to town and restauranats! We would definitely return to 603 Cedar Street and recommend it to others.
