Overview

About the property

Home - 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 3 Baths - (Sleeps 6-8)

Where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. Reserve this 1860's Victorian home for your vacation, and park your car. Walk to the Bay Beach, fine dining at the canal restaurants, and shopping and restaurants in downtown Lewes.

Your vacation home is located mid-way between the Delaware Bay and the Lewes Rehobeth Canal. It has unequalled history and character. It's located in the path of battle of the war of 1812, when the British War ships were firing from Bay on the town of Lewes, and the towns people were firing back at the ships in the Bay. A cannonball was found on the site in 1984. Additionally, the house is situated next to the formerly, infamous 'Miss Lil's.' A bawdy house employing ladies of the evening.

The home (not Miss Lil's) is fully-equipped, eat-in kitchen, dining room for eight, and woodstove for autumn lovers. The three bedrooms are as follows: One bedroom had a brand new queen sized bed and headboard, the other bedroom has a full bed, with attached TV and reading room, and the third bedroom has a bunkbed, full on bottom and single on top, which kids love. Please bring appropriate bed linens, paper products, etc.

LEWE'S BEST SECRET......AUTUMN AT THE SHORE.

The weather is less humid, the beach is less crowded & the water is still warm

The miracle of migration is in the air, witness the migration of flocks of geese and a vast variety of migratory birds on their journey to distant lands.

A night walk along the beach may be blessed with a Harvest Moon

And the best secret of all is accommodations are 40 -45% less than the summer month

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

If you are going to Lewes this is the house for you. Very nicely decorated, plenty of room for bigger family’s with a wonderful location. The only problem each day is… do I turn right and walk to historic Lewes or turn left and walk to the beach. George the owner was very helpful to work with.

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Summer 2015 marked our ninth consecutive week-long stay at "The Yellow Daisy House." This spacious and comfortable property offers the best Lewes experience; private location surrounded by trees and wetlands, easy walking distance to bay beach and uptown shops and eateries, and accessible biking distance to ocean beaches and trails of Cape Henlopen State Park. We enjoy the lovingly restored old house, filled with eclectic and re-purposed furniture pieces, beautiful hardwood floors, fully-equipped kitchen, and three full baths (including full-size washer and dryer). The master bedroom suite features a sitting room and private access to a second-story deck - perfect spot for bird watching and catching fresh bay breezes! Well-maintained and sparkling clean, we have thoroughly enjoyed our annual week of recreation and hospitality of the gracious homeowner.
