Community Amenities: The Village of Bear Trap Dunes surrounds 27 holes of a beautiful and well thought out golf course. Steps away from our home, your may catch the shuttle to Bethany Beach, exercise or relax at the community Pavilion (indoor and outdoor pools, fitness centers, hot tub, sauna, tennis, basketball, recreation center, table games and tot lot), hit gold balls at the range, walk to the golf Clubhouse, restaurant or pop in to the Clubhouse for a grab and go breakfast, lunch, snacks and papers. There is an in season fee of $35 per person per week to use community amenities. Only purchase the number of passes you will need at any one time as they are transferable among house guests. Off season amenity passes are $10 and $15. Golf is separate from the community amenities. Outdoor pool season is extended and, so close, that you can pop over quickly. Children over 12 can use amenities without parents (subject to change).
While this community is wonderful in the summer, it is equally wonderful in the spring and fall. Even after the outdoor pools close, there are still plenty of things to do. Walking or biking around the community is cooler off season and we are looking forward to a new trail opening nearby (hopefully soon).

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We grew up in separate parts of Maryland and spent years vacationing in Maryland and Delaware beaches as children. We have lived in Baltimore for 14 years and are busy raising our 2 young children (they helped decorate the twin and bunk rooms). We found our way back to Bethany because of how relaxing we find our beach home and the close proximity and ability to enjoy the property year round.
Why the Owner Chose Bear Trap Dunes: We purchased this property because of its prime location within this resort community which allows us to use the amenities easily and more frequently - and still access the beach quickly. It's a lovely location year round with plenty of activities. While a beach front location would be nice, this location offers so many more activities not available at the beach and allows everyone to easily pop over to enjoy their own activity, while still being close. It takes 30 seconds to walk to the pavilion - how easy is that? So far (and hopefully), it's better protected from bad weather and storms. Someday, it may have an Ocean View. Our children love to run around the Village Green and 'perform' at the amphitheater, visit the 'bear' behind the restaurant and Clubhouse, play Frisbee in the back yard, visit Old Pro Golf's Indoor Miniature Golf, the Carousel's ice rink, explore James Farm ecological preserve with a dog, watch a move at the old time Clayton Theater - and enjoy the indoor and outdoor pools... Off season, there are lots of community activities too - we've found the beach full of people on Thanksgiving weekend, discovered a local Thanksgiving turkey trot, Easter egg roll, triathlon, and Memorial Day parade....so far.
We live in Maryland so it is close enough to enjoy a weekend trip - and so relaxing for us... and all of the exterior work is done by the HOA - and beautifully kept up. Our children are busy summer swimmers at home during June and July.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: This property is so well equipped, feels like a single family home and has exceptional amenities that we were unable to match in the Delaware/Maryland beach communities. We hope you enjoy it too.
