From Colonial times, the Delaware Shore has been on the East Coast's most popular destinations for families seeking a quiet retreat from the clamor of urban living. Welcome to The Peninsula on the Indian River Bay, a private community crafted from nearly 800 acres of magical waterfront property, delightfully enhanced by an extraordinary collection of resort-quality amenities, highlighted by Delaware's first private Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course. Ranked as the top course in Delaware, the Peninsula Golf Club is often referred to as the “Pebble Beach of the East” with several holes bordering Indian River Bay. Few private resort communities can match the world-class amenities you'll enjoy at the Lakeside Village complex, the heart of The Peninsula. Featuring a state-of-the-art fitness center, a resort-style pool complex, lighted tennis courts, fine dining and much more.
This condo and resort is ideal for families that want to enjoy the beauty and fun of the beach, but without the hassle and worries. There is something for everyone in the family. There is fishing and crabbing available, miles of nature trails, jogging and biking trails, nature center and a kayak launch. Enjoy the Village Center complete with indoor Olympic sized pool, state of the art gym, spa, outdoor adult pool, lighted tennis courts, game room for kids and an outdoor wave pool that is truly remarkable.

A large portion of adjacent land has been placed in the Sussex County Land Trust, this area is preserved as woodlands and marshlands, wild life thrives in this protected environment. The community is gated with 24hr security. The homeowners at the Peninsula take extreme pride in the beauty of the land and buildings.

Year Purchased: 2011
About: We are a small family who just moved to the East Coast. We actually ended up buying our second home in The Peninsula before we bought our D.C. area home. Falling in love with The Peninsula was instant for us. We enjoy spending weekend and any week we can get away at our 'cute yellow beach' house as our 5 year old calls it. The minute we cross the bring we feel like we are on vacation even if just for a one night getaway. The Peninsula has truly been more than we could have ever dreamed of. Between the resort amenities, nature available, incredible staff and convenience to so many destinations we have found the home we will raise our family in and retire in as well. We only hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
Why Millsboro: The home is located in the Veranda near the Lakeside Village where all of the amenities are located - indoor/outdoor pool, wave pool, restaurant, fitness center, spa, tennis, and golf. The Peninsula at the Indian River Bay is the perfect vacation destination offering the finest resort amenities at Rehoboth Beach starting with the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course,voted number one in Delaware. The Peninsula offers eight tennis courts, three swimming pools (including an indoor pool, hot tubs, and a lagoon sandy beach wave pool which is always a big hit with the kids), a state-of-the-art fitness center, sauna, spa services, and the Terrace Grille for on-site indoor or outdoor dining. Recently opened is a beautiful new Nature Center overlooking Lingo Creek; enjoy fishing, bird watching or kayaking from this facility and the coastal region’s rich ecology.
You can also participate in a full slate of club events and activities. This summer, the calendar is filled with fun things to do, including camps for the kids and plenty for grown-ups, too – golf clinics & tournaments, yoga, cooking classes, massage, beer tastings and more. Peaceful ponds, creeks and wetlands, are just some of nature's most enjoyable features that have been preserved. The Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course wraps around creeks, ponds, lakes and the Bay. For quieter days away from the crowds at Rehoboth Beach, enjoy a swim at the onsite bay beach or fishing from the piers.
This wonderful bayside community is located only a short drive from Rehoboth, Bethany, Dewey and Ocean City. We are only 2-1/2 hours from the Virginia, DC/MD, NJ and Philadelphia areas.
