                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: We are Maryland residents who fell in love with the Delaware shore. We built our home for our retirement years. We are very active and enjoy kayaking, road biking and nature photography.

                          Why the Owner Chose Bowers Beach:
                          Our home is a sanctuary from everyday stress. Taking long walks on the beach and watching the shorebirds is very relaxing. Sitting on the deck with a good book is a dream. Our home is close enough to stores and shopping, Dover is only 10 miles away.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                          The layout of our home offers unobstructed views of the Delaware bay. Bowers Beach is close enough to plan day trips to Rehobeth beach or the town of Lewes without being stuck in the kaos of traffic and crowds
