About Diane Stacy

We have enjoyed living in Rehoboth since 1982 and have witnessed many changes since that time. However, one thing never changes -- Miles of beautiful sandy beaches stretch along the shores of the Atlantic; while parks, lakes, nearby attractions, boutiques, cafes & fine dining thrive and historic towns make this beach community an ideal place to call home; and where all of the major cities and airports on the northeast corridor are approximately 2-4 hours away.

Diane Stacy purchased this Cottage in 1982

Why Diane Stacy chose Country Club Estates

This property was built in 1982 as a primary home and has stayed in the family since then. The location was chosen to enjoy the tranquility of Silver Lake and an abundance of flora and fauna. Seasonal changes beckon a variety of fish and waterfowl, while a canopy of trees mirrored in the lake provides an amazing mosaic to enjoy all year long.

                                                              We've come back to this place now for three years. Sit out back and enjoy the scenery and nature. Close to the beach but in a quiet neighborhood. Very clean, cozy house that makes you feel at home. Love this place!

                                                              Love this review! Thank you, Bryant Family, for enjoying our cozy Barefoot Beach Bungalow for 3 years now! Here's to more memories on the lake and Happy Vacationing 2018 ~Diane

                                                              Lakefront at the Beach

                                                              Paul D.

                                                              Staying in this cozy, well-equipped cottage on the lake added an extra fun dimension to our beach vacation. Our two-week stay involved less schlepping to the beach, and more relaxing and restful time on the decks facing the lake. We rented a kayak (highly recommended), and took it out almost every day! We have vacationed in Rehoboth for several years now, but have never stayed in a lakefront property. This unique location has now spoiled us to the point where we would never even consider another property that is not located on Silver Lake. We had the pleasure of meeting the cottage's owner, Diane Stacy, who could not have been more accommodating. The house is so clean and well-kept, with a touch of antique charm, yet with all of the modern conveniences. Staying in this house is like going to a mountain house at the lake, AND going to a beach house, all in one vacation! We can't wait to book it again for next year.

                                                              Best, Diane

                                                              This is our fifth year renting this property and there is no other place in the area that can top it! The house is Clean, Conveniently located, and Full of wonderful surprises! The owner could not be any more accomodating and pleasant! We have made amazing memories and hope to make many more! We particularly love the backyard wildlife.

                                                              We have visited Rehoboth Beach for many years and stayed in many properties but this one is unique and special. Upon arrival we feel like we are "Home"! And we never want to leave! The house is extremely clean and very tastefully decorated. The back yard is an oasis! To be so close to the ocean but to have the lake right in your back yard with it's abundance of wildlife is fantastic. The tot lot right down the road is a great bonus for travelers with children and the street is very quiet. We will never forget our interactions with "Bill's Turtle" or any of the other aquatic life in the lake. If you want to go on vacation with all the amenities of home and the added bonus of a huge deck space overlooking a very active turtle community this is definitely the place! We will come back year after year as long as we can!

                                                              I cannot begin to convey my gratitude for all of your kind expressions regarding your stays -- now 5 -- at our "Barefoot Beach Bungalow". It's wonderful to know that you feel so at home and that Bill's Turtle and his buddies continue to be a big hit with you and your family. Here's to a wonderful summer and your next memory building visit to our lakeside cottage ...

                                                              4 years and counting, can't wait to return

                                                              This was our 4th year in this remarkable property it has everything you would ever need to make your stay comfortable. Each year we enjoy a wonderful family vacation with memories to last a lifetime. We arrived this year with a hurricane, and marveled at mother natures wrath; waves the likes of which we will probably never see again, sand drifts that rival our lake effect snow drifts in upstate NY. . We were snug as bugs in a rug in our cottage. My 6 year old grandson has been with us every year, and when we arrived he said "Gosh I've missed this place!" His favorite things are feeding "Bill" the turtle, the playground, the turtle bridge and just hanging out on the deck and in the house. The location is perfect, the house so clean, and the owners seem like family after 4 years! We love this place, and plan to come back again and again.

                                                              Thank you for another remarkable review. I am always so humbled by your kind words, and it is truly heartwarming to know your family is so eager to return and that priceless family vacation memories are being made at the cottage year after year. I look forward to your visits and hearing about your adventures... Albeit from seasonal storms to smooth sailing. The U-Tube videos of your grandson feeding Bill's Turtle and examining the Halloween bucket filled with treats bring a smile to my face. Thank you, McConnell family! Here's to next year!!

                                                              Another Beautiful Vacation!

The deck is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the lake and all of the suprises it may bring. The house is clean and inviting and makes you feel like you are at home right away. This is the the type of property where Priceless Family Memories are made!
