Great apartment in historic beach setting.

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed the location and being close to all the shops and restaurants. Even though it was the height of the summer season, I was able to easily park close by. The only down side was loud music coming from area restaurants until around 11:30 pm and then truck deliveries in the early morning. This didn't outweigh the convenience of the location and I would definitely stay here again.

Gate House Suite

  • 5 of 5

Totally enjoyed our first visit to Lewes, DE ! The apartment was perfectly situated within the city/town of Lewes, making it really easy to walk everywhere. The apartment itself was just the right size for one couple and very nicely decorated. I plan on telling our friends and family about this wonderful place....both Lewes and the Gate House abode. I believe that the owners may also own a restaurant in town called The Buttery where we had an EXCELLENT dinner...SO good! A little pricey but really worth it! Might be nice for a renter at the Gate House to get a coupon for The Buttery!!

The ONLY thing that I could say that would be a SLIGHT negative was that the cleaning crew for the apartment needs to be a little more thorough. The apartment was very clean, however, I did notice some areas that had been skipped; i.e. around the base of the fridge, the base of the bathroom sink (dust and hair), paneled doors that had collected dust and AC vents were dusty. Not a BIG deal but the owner should know this and talk to their cleaners.

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this place for one couple.

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!
