Ranch home with a gourmet kitchen that includes granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, breakfast area and snack bar. Large formal dining room. Open concept great room with hardwood floors and 10 foot ceilings. Wall of windows to let in great sunlight, breezes and views of the woods. Stone gas fireplace for winter month use. Sleeps 8 with brand new sleeper sofa. Master bedroom with sitting area and new king-size bed. Master bathroom has a private bath with double sink and shower.

About Pam and Scott Lackman

This is our future retirement home and we can't wait to be here full time – one more year to go! We will be sharing our home with our guests until November of 2017. We have so enjoyed hearing about the wonderful memories that our guests have made at our home, it has been a great experience! It makes us feel blessed to have wonderful people enjoy our home.

We have enjoyed the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach area for the last four decades with family and friends and are happy to now own a home here. We currently live and work in the Lehigh Valley Area of Pennsylvania and visit as much as we can to enjoy the beach and the peaceful setting of our home.

Pam and Scott Lackman purchased this house in 2012

Why Pam and Scott Lackman chose Delaware

We love the closeness to the beach, restaurants and shopping but love to come back to our serene setting on Love Creek.

What makes this house unique

When we were looking for our retirement home we fell in love with the mature trees, the private location, the sunsets over Love Creek and our amazing home.

There is nothing like sitting on the flagstone patio in the morning to greet the day and watch the birds come to visit the feeders and watch the ospreys and bald eagles fly over Love Creek. And then at the end of a busy day at the beach, shopping or sightseeing to come back, sit out on the patio and watch the sunset. And because there are no distracting lights, the stars at night are incredible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You have a beautiful home – we especially enjoyed the birds being the only “life” noise of the week! Thank you for sharing your home.

A relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is not a typical beach rental. It’s the owners' future retirement home on a premium lot at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet well maintained subdivision. You truly feel like their welcome guests staying here. The backyard is very private as there are many trees with wetlands and Love Creek beyond. We found it very relaxing to sit in the rocking chairs on the flagstone patio enjoying this natural setting. The great room takes advantage of this view with an abundance of windows. It’s a short drive from this home to Lewes or Rehoboth Beach and all the restaurants and stores you’ll need on your vacation. We were here in October and particularly enjoyed hiking the many trails and walking along the beaches in Cape Henlopen State Park. We also visited the nearby Prime Hook and Bombay National Wildlife Refuges along the Delaware Bay to do some bird watching. If you enjoy ocean beaches, wetlands and viewing wildlife then you'll want to enjoy quality time here with family and/or friends. The owners were very professional and helpful in making our rental reservation.

Relaxing Fall Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay in this property over the Thanksgiving holiday. The layout of the house was great for meals together, watching football in the family room, playing games on the dining room table, and just checking out the view out the back windows. The property location is great on the edge of Love Creek, and close to town for taking a quick trip for needed supplies. Pam handled all the reservations details and questions very professionally. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Lewes area!

Owner's Response: Our home is able to accommodate all kinds of different family activities - whether it’s during the summer when everyone is outside on the patio or in the off-season when the action moves inside. And there is always the wonderful view from our great room windows - no matter what the weather. So glad your family enjoyed their time together for Thanksgiving and thank you for your very kind review.

This rental was great! Clean, new, filled with amenities. Great patio in the backyard backing up with the watershed. Beach is close by, downtown Lewes is close by, nightlife in Rehoboth is close by. We had a great time relaxing and getting around the area, we want to come back!

Lovely home, great location

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This home was perfect for our family - 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, an open floor plan, lovely backyard view and patio, easy access to Lewes and Rehoboth communities and beaches. We were celebrating family birthdays and had a caterer prepare the food in the kitchen and the dining room sat all of us. It was a multi-generational gathering and we could not have been happier. The homeowners were great to work with, too. A lovely, lovely stay. We highly recommend for families.

Owner's Response: We have found our home to be so very perfect for all types of visitors… from two people visiting for a getaway weekend to families of all ages coming together for special celebrations. We can even accommodate a caterer! One of our great pleasures in sharing our home is to know that special vacations and memories have been created. Thank you so much for your very kind review.

We enjoyed our week's stay at Greenfield Court at Love Creek!

  • 5 of 5

This home is located in a very well maintained development It is at the rear of a small cul-de-sac overlooking Love Creek, and therefore is quite private. The grounds are immaculate. We (2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 children) found this three bedroom home to be just the right size for us. We enjoyed sitting at the breakfast table, looking out over the patio toward Love Creek and watching the many varieties of birds and a doe and her two fawns. On July 3rd, a neighbor across the creek put on a very professional, long fireworks display - a real treat! The home is open, airy and well equipped with everything we needed. It was quite hot and humid during our stay, but we remained cool and comfortable inside. It is centrally located and surrounding activities (beach, etc.) are short drives away, as are stores and restaurants. Dover is less than an hour's drive, and for those airplane enthusiasts, a must see is the Air Mobility Command museum on the grounds of Dover Air Force Base! The pool on the grounds of the development was a hit, especially with the children, and adults, too! We so enjoyed our daily walks on the sidewalks all around the grounds.

The rental process with the Lackman's was smooth and Pam was always a quick email away with any questions. We would certainly recommend this lovely home for your vacation!!

Owner's Response: There is not much I can add – you have underscored the reasons why we chose this home for our future retirement. We are in a private location, have access to a lovely pool, visiting wildlife is right outside our windows, everything is within close driving distance and we don’t even have to leave our patio to watch an excellent firework display! Thank you for your very kind words, Jo Anne, and your time! I appreciate your wonderful review!

Love Creek Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous, one-level home with open floor plan and a rear patio with a privacy and active view of local wildlife: deer, fox, numerous birds, squirrels, etc. House is very well maintained, and lots of garage shelving for storing beach equipment and coolers, etc. Close to Coastal Route 1, local beaches and stores. Very nice pool if one wants to stay within confines of the development. Pam is an easy person to work with and was timely in getting back to us when we had questions prior to our arrival, and she even checked in with us during the week in the event any issues had arisen. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would consider vacationing there again.

Since our property backs up to Love Creek, kayaking, canoeing, crabbing and fishing are just a few steps away at our private community dock. Also enjoy our private community swimming pool, tennis court and walking trails. And Cape Henlopen State Park, the Cape May Lewes Ferry, Historic Lewes and Rehoboth Beach are all within a very short drive. And don't forget the shopping at nearby outlets.
