Bear Trap Dunes, situated in the DE area known as the 'Quiet Resorts,' is perfect for active families who enjoy the beach, nature walks, biking, outlet shopping, golf and tennis. We have enjoyed watching dolphins frolicking in the surf during morning walks along Bethany Beach followed by coffee and breakfast sandwiches at the Turtle Beach Café on the boardwalk. We have also enjoyed watching the horseshoe crabs, ospreys, and herons at the James Farm Nature Center. The Indian River Lifesaving Station offers several nature walks in the Delaware State Parks. The area provides many excellent restaurants. Among our favorites are: Off the Hook, Mangos, DeFebos, and Catch54. If you are looking for your favorite snacks, items for the grill, or ingredients for your favorite home-cooked meals, the Giant and Food Lion full service supermarkets are just 1/2 mile away. There is also a Harris Teeter supermarket about 1 mile away. Nearby Ocean City, MD provides amusement parks and more lively nightlife. Additional entertainment options can be found in nearby Rehoboth Beach (RB) and Dewey Beach. RB also offers unique boutiques and a large outlet center for your shopping pleasure. The area is also well-know for its antiques shops. The Freeman stage, in nearby Bayside in Fenwick Island, offers outstanding free or low cost live performances throughout the summer. Deepsea, bay and surf fishing makes the area a fisherman's dream vacation. Delight the children with an outing of crabbing or clam digging, or a trip to the beach to find that special shell or to fly a kite.

About the owner: Vicky and Marvin Lawson grew up in Philadelphia but always loved being near the water. We met during our student days at Penn State University. Vicky followed Marvin around the world for 21 years of an Army career. Vicky is a retired elementary school teacher and, following his Army career, Marvin has retired from a second career with the Virginia State Government. Our two children and two beautiful grand daughters greatly enjoy our 'beach' house.
Why the Owner Chose Bear Trap Dunes: For several years we rented vacations weeks in the Delaware Quiet Resorts before deciding to buy our own piece of paradise in 2007. We have travelled and vacationed extensively throughout the world but settled on the Village of Bear Trap Dunes because of its family oriented feel, proximity to our Columbia, MD. home, and proximity to the Delaware beaches. We think that we have a pretty good idea what vacationers are looking for in a great vacation site and we try to deliver.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: You will love the proximity of this home to the beach shuttle and to the Pavilion and all of the amenities that it has to offer including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts and fitness center. Our home provides a quiet oasis for relaxation and family get-togethers. From this central location you are only minutes away from some of the areas best beaches, entertainment and shopping.
