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 Historic District

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

Lovely summer retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying at this home for the past 10 summers and it's fantastic! Cheryl has continued to make changes over the years that make a great home even better. I love and value my time here and am grateful to Cheryl for sharing her wonderful home. While we are here, we walk into town to the coffee shop, restaurants and shopping; enjoy afternoons at the bay/ocean; kayak and SUP; bike on the amazing trails to Rehoboth; do yoga outside at the beach and canal park; shop at the outlets; listen to live music in Dewey; enjoy the nature and history of Cape Henlopen; and get our fill of boardwalk treats in Rehoboth. It is the perfect escape!

Owner's Response: We love having you and your family come back every August! We value you so much, and feel like it's your home as much as ours - you have been here every summer since we purchased it! I know you cherish the great memories you have from your summers in Lewes, and I'm so glad you found our cottage all those years ago.

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best experience we have ever had with a beach rental. The home was beautifully decorated, comfortable and very clean. It felt like we were staying in a friend's home rather than a rental. We appreciated being allowed to bring our pets.

Gem of a house

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in this charming cottage in Lewes for years, and it gets better every time we come! The new addition of a family room and full bath are absolutely beautiful! Our favorite spot is still the screened in porch, which has been painted and is even more inviting, and overlooks the beautiful flowers in the private back yard. We love walking to town, and the convenience to the beaches, shopping, restaurants, and bike trails.

Perfect beach house! Wonderful porches; great new kitchen, kitchen nook and den.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable house for a large family within close walking distance of downtown Lewes. Well appointed interiors but not too precious. Lots of nice touches for guests including bathroom soaps, games, pantry supplies, and responsive local contact.

Beautiful garden - what could be better than sitting on the porch, smelling the lilacs?

Excellent beach stay

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous, fully-equipped house in a lovely, convenient location. Cheryl was easy to work with and very communicative. We loved staying in the charming, historic area of Lewes while still enjoying the nearby conveniences of shopping and eating, and walking the boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach. Enjoyed our stay very much and will definitely be back. Thank you so much, Cheryl.
