About Karen Ricagno

Steve and Karen moved to Lewes full time 2016. We love Lewes and you will too!

Karen Ricagno purchased this Cottage in 2017

Why Karen Ricagno chose Lewes Beach (East of Canal)

Lewes beach simply can't be beat for the feel and vibe of a comfortable beach town, with both the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean right around the corner. Beaching, biking, fishing, all with a small-town feel... and when you're done, walk into downtown Lewes for a great meal, shopping, or just the people watching - you WILL LOVE IT!

What makes this Cottage unique

The beach is one block away, downtown Lewes is a 10 minute walk the other way across the canal - you can walk or bike anywhere. Cape Henlopen State Park is a 10 minute bikeride down the street, just past the Cape May/Lewes ferry.

                                                              Lovely place!

                                                              Karen and Steve were very accomodating to our needs (we only wanted to stay part of the week due to our schedules)- next time we would do the whole week if we could! It looks newly redone and was very comfortable. The upstairs deck was a wonderful place to sit and read (the tree and migrating birds made a mess but Karen warned us about it, was very apologetic and I believe the tree is to be removed). The living room, kitchen and outside porch area were very nice and were very family friendly. The house was a short block from the bay beach and even our 2 yr old granddaughter had no trouble with the walk. Best of all, it is across the street from the best ice cream- 2 dips! Would definitley recommend this place!

                                                              Kids loved being close to beach and 2 Dips:)

                                                              Cottage was clean and cute. Our kids loved being able to walk across the street to go to 2 Dips. We especially liked that we could keep our boat just a few blocks away at Anglers. Easy walk to the town's restaurants and shops.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              We're so glad you enjoyed the cottage and your time in Lewes! Thank you for doing such a wonderful job of leaving it clean, we'll look forward to seeing you again next year!

                                                              Beautiful, relaxing, very clean, clutter free!

                                                              Beautiful beach house. Would love to have this house as my own! Decorated great, open layout. Nice accommodations. Lots of games and good cooking equipment. Nice outdoor shower. Close to cape henlope, beach/ bay. The bay was great for the kids because it was like a giant swimming pool. So relaxing. Felt like a smaller version of obx. So clean, would defiantly stay again.
