Property description

Charming 1870's beach cottage once owned by impressionist Theodora Kane located in the Lewes Historic District. Cottage maintains original wide planked flooring and claw footed tub. Unusual beams were utilized when restoring the home.

Lewes beach is located within approximately 3/4 mile. Enjoy a bicycle ride to beautiful Cape Henlopen State Park just a couple of miles away. Bicycle the Junction and Breakwater Trail to Rehoboth on bicycles available for our guests.

Relax and enjoy our gardens and private pool, after a day at the beach.

Cottage is located only a few blocks from Historic Second Street with great restaurants, shops, and boutiques. It is only a short drive to outlet malls with tax-free shopping. Consider including a trip on the ferry to Cape May, New Jersey, or kayaking from the new canal park. Historic Lewes has much to offer. Take a self guided walking through town or an evening cemetery tour through the Historic Society. Walk to the canal and take a tour of one of the few surviving lighthouse ships or charter a boat to go fishing on the Delaware Bay. Tuesday evening concerts can be heard at the town library which is a ten minute walk from the cottage. There are several parks and beautiful gardens in Lewes. Visit the wonderful farmer's market on the grounds of the Historic Society on Saturday morning. There are always wonderful things happening in Lewes!

This home was purchased in 2009 and is decorated with all new beds, living room furniture, and charming antiques. Art quilts adorn the walls throughout the cottage and may serve as your inspiration to create your own works of art. You will certainly relax and enjoy the gardens and screened porch area.

Children welcome and encouraged to enjoy our charming and relaxing space. Lincoln logs, Legos, and a library of children's books and videos are available.

Your payment will be secure as we have a rental company handle the financial agreement. The rental company charges a $50 application fee and a $50 non-refundable damage insurance fee for each rental. Please realize that most listings have additional fees and we feel that is important to be honest and clear regarding all fees charged. Having a rental agent insures that the property is being properly taken care of and in the event of property issues, the rental company will react promptly to assure that your stay is an enjoyable one.

5% Delaware tax is required.

Year Purchased: 2009

Why Lewes:
We looked for a second home for several years to enjoy with our family and to live in after we retire. We fell in love with Lewes and finally found a wonderful historic home with a beautiful back yard space. We enjoy walking into town for coffee and baked goods or to the town library. The community is warm and inviting and there is a vibrant art community. When we come to visit, we don't want to leave. It feels like home. It is our 'Fortress of Solitude'!
