Recent Lewes reviews
"It was perfect for us. We fell in love with Lewes and the condo location was perfect. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. We spent everyday at Cape Henlopen State Park, which is filled with hiking and biking trails, & great beaches. We hope to make it an annual visit."Guest: Mary B.

"We travelled from England to sample the delights of Delaware and were not disappointed. We had a great time in a very well equipped, pleasant and relaxing condo. Owner communicated very quickly and was extremely organised. The village of five points had everything you needed - pool, restaurants, supermarket and drug store all within a short walk. Beaches 10 minute drive. A great place."Guest: K53 Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 2, 2014View listing

"Our usual beach house rental was recently sold and no longer available. After weeks of searching for a place for our annual beach vacation we were lucky enough to come upon this awesome home, almost to good to be true. Our experience from start to finish was no less than perfect! Once the owner was contacted -it was a very fast,convenient, prompt and an enjoyable experience. The home was even more beautiful than the pictures could demonstrate. Very clean and comfortable. I would absolutely recommend this to my family and friends for rental. Quiet and beautiful neighborhood yet close to everything at the beach. Many thanks to the homeowner for allowing us to stay and answering all of our questions promptly. We are looking forward to our next visit!"Guest: Bruce S. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 4, 2014View listing
Lewes Travel Tips
Lewes Vacation Rentals in the Smallest State
Delaware, as some have stated is “just not that big,” which makes it easy for you to find your perfect Lewes vacation rentals. Other towns in the state include Rehoboth, Dewey, Bethany, and South Bethany; however, it is Lewes, Delaware, pronounced "Lewis," that provides a heavy draw for tourists each year. Lewes is located in the southern section of the state, just a bit northeast of Georgetown. When you arrive in Lewes, you will see historical brick buildings lining Main Street and the Atlantic Ocean running alongside the town. As a gateway to Delaware’s top attractions, it is also a path to Cape May via a toll ferry.
Lewes Vacation Homes on the Site of the Dutch Settlement
Lewes was founded in 1631 as one of the first American settlements of the state. The founders arrived from Hoorn, Holland, naming their town Zwaanendael meaning "valley of the swans." Their intention was to create the little city just north of Cape Henlopen as an agricultural and whaling town. Unfortunately, the local Indian tribe (Siconese) had other ideas. Within a year, the colony was destroyed by the Native Americans yet the surviving townsfolk rebuilt it. In the War of 1812, the village suffered again but this time due to British attacks on the harbor and beaches. If you are a history buff, you will not want to miss DeVries Monument on Pilottown Road. It commemorates the 1631 Dutch settlement with a monument on the site of the original fort. The town was also home to numerous pilots who guided ships into Delaware Bay, and this history can be examined while at Lewes vacation homes.
Lewes Condos Look at Cape May
Cape May, New Jersey is a popular tourist destination just like Lewes, Delaware. While staying at Lewes condos, you may want to take the ferry ride to Cape May. The trip is 17 miles, taking 80 minutes both ways. The fee is relative to the distance you will be traveling but well worth it. A day trip in Cape May opens up new opportunities for you regarding shops, activities, and restaurants. Of course, Lewes has plenty to offer their visitors in the way of fun if you wish to stay around your condo. Fisherman’s Wharf Cruises bring you out of the inter-coastal waterway to the Atlantic Ocean where whales and dolphins can be seen throughout the year. For whales, you will need to travel to Lewes vacation rentals in late summer and early fall.
Expanding Your Horizons at the Seaside Nature Center
Attractions in Lewes include Fisher Martin House, Lewes Historical Society, Lightship Overfalls, Zwaanendael Museum, many wineries, and the Seaside Nature Center. The nature center is reached by traveling to Cape Henlopen State Park where you will discover numerous large fish aquariums, touch tanks, and other exhibits. The center offers live snakes and turtles and their Seaside Natural Trail. This day trip from Lewes provides a picnicking spot near the historic Fort Miles Gun Park. You can play along the beach to watch for wildlife, hike on the trails for bird-watching, or tour the fort all in one day.
If you head north from Lewes, it is possible to reach another nature preserve, the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge. This northern park moves you to Broadkill Beach and Primehook Beach where the land is protected for conservation. At the very top of the park is Slaughter Beach. If you move inland, you will reach grassy land with a few trees and bushes.
Dining and Entertainment by Lewes Vacation Rentals
Renting a home or condo is typically a great choice if you want to dine in and make your own meals out of the fresh seafood you catch. However, Lewes has a few restaurants you might want to check out as well. Agave Tequila Bar and Restaurant brings authentic Mexican to your palate on historic Second Street. There is also Beach House Restaurant where you step back into the past with friendly pricing and fresh seafood.
