About the property

Updated 4 Bed, 2 Bath Home w/ Modern Kitchen/Family Room & Screened in Porch

Newly renovated in 2017, this charming & comfortable cottage in the heart of downtown Lewes has a new look! In addition to all the wonderful features, such as the beautiful screened in porch, we have added a family room off the kitchen with a large sectional sofa & gas fireplace. It's already the favorite room of all our families who have been visiting us for years! And, it's brought amazing light to the kitchen and new breakfast area. We also added a full bath downstairs, a separate laundry room, and a new outdoor shower!

From our convenient location, you can enjoy all that Lewes has to offer. Walk to shops and restaurants in town, or relax after a day at the beach on the large screened in back porch. It's only a short drive to Cape Henlopen State Park and Rehoboth Beach.

High speed internet access included in rental.

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 2006

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 with new family room

~ Cute kids room tucked away upstairs.

~ Cozy & comfortable.

~ Walk to town shops & restaurants

~ A favorite & popular rental for families and friends who have been returning year after year

Best place to stay in Lewes

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was amazing! The house is incredible. The location is perfect. You can walk into town, to Dairy Queen, and Scoops, and to the beach. The house is beautiful. The rooms and beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are very nice too. The kitchen is well stocked, functional, and open so the cook can enjoy themselves too. The grill is so nice! We had fabulous BBQ one night. The yard, front porch, and back deck are great. The owner is responsive and very nice. Stop looking and pick this place! It's really something special.

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!
