Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two day get away at the Gate House suite. The rental is in the perfect location in downtown Lewes, and Gretchen was very welcoming / accommodating. Thanks for a great weekend!

The apartment i cozy and in a great location. It was clean and neat and well equipped. There were some rowdy people leaving Agave late on Saturday night. Glad they had a good time but they were loud! Unfortunately, it was really windy while we were there and the The Gate House restaurant sign was right outside the bedroom window. It was creaking and thumping a bit in the wind. The only other issue was we had a hard time figuring out the television control. Most stations we tried said Subscription package needed. Something to tell us which channels were available would have been helpful.

Perfect location in Lewes

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was perfectly located in Lewes. Half a block to all the restaurants and a less than 5 minute drive to the beach. Parking can be tricky and the couch is a tad small are the only minor negatives about this place.

Perfect village rental in the heart of charming Lewes

  • 5 of 5

We were in Delaware for an elopement wedding/family meet and greet in nearby Milton and just needed a little place to sleep and something "un touristy" like an overpriced seasonal hotel room. This apartment is a gem and everything was what we needed. Sitting area has a lot of local reading material, the kitchen and bathroom were clean and tastefully decorated. The bedroom was also clean and the bed very comfy. Because you're in a building over a restaurant, there are outside lights that stay on all night, so if you need complete darkness to sleep, bring your sleeping mask.

You cannot beat this location-step outside and you're on Market street in the heart of Lewes and you can walk everywhere--even to the beach! There are tons of cute shops and restaurants and the deli on the corner is awesome, as was Nectar--great place for a green drink or a hearty meal.

Lewes has quite a history and history buffs will appreciate this town as well.

The only potential difficulty for some may be (and it didn't turn out to be as bad as I thought when we couldn't find parking), is that the parking in front of the place is metered--$1.00 per hour with a 2 hour time limit. However, we DID find parking just down the street and it was easily walkable. As you can imagine, it's a popular place, so parking is at a premium and we managed to navigate that very well with a little extra effort on our part. We were able to park overnight right in front of the apartment, as they only enforce the meters between the hours of 9 a.m -6 p.m.

The owner was very easy to communicate with and I highly recommend them and this apartment. It's perfect for two people, centrally located, clean and comfy.

Great location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying right in the heart of town! The suite is spacious and the full kitchen is very convenient. Really enjoyed being able to pop into the restaurant downstairs for a quick drink or snack.
