About the property

Updated 4 Bed, 2 Bath Home w/ Modern Kitchen/Family Room & Screened in Porch

Newly renovated in 2017, this charming & comfortable cottage in the heart of downtown Lewes has a new look!

About Cheryl Lynch

We had been vacationing in Lewes for years before we finally found our 'cozy cottage by the sea'. We have grown to love Lewes over the years, and have enjoyed bringing friends and showing them the charm of Second Street, and Henlopen State Park. Lewes has so many great restaurants, and the kids love to be able to walk to town, eat pizza at Half Full, and end a wonderful day at the beach with King's Ice Cream.

Cheryl Lynch purchased this house in 2006

Why Cheryl Lynch chose Historic District

The wonderful screened in back porch sold us immediately! We spend hours out there hanging out, drinking coffee, reading, and playing games. The private back yard with the beautiful flowers and trees is so relaxing. We have families who have been coming back year after year, and they feel as at home there as we do!

The kids love the upstairs bedroom with the built in beds! They hide out there, and play for hours. We love the serenity of the house, and the ability to really relax and enjoy our time there with family and friends. We have created many memories here over the years, and hope you will too.

Being in town has been wonderful - we can all walk to shopping, restaurants, and the pond a few blocks away. Lewes is a hidden gem, and close to Rehoboth, outlet shopping, and many other amenities, if you want some more fun things to do while you're here.

What makes this house unique

~ Wonderful, private screened in back porch.

~ Modern, eat in kitchen with new family room

~ Cute kids room tucked away upstairs.

~ Cozy & comfortable.

~ Walk to town shops & restaurants

Lovely summer retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying at this home for the past 10 summers and it's fantastic! Cheryl has continued to make changes over the years that make a great home even better. I love and value my time here and am grateful to Cheryl for sharing her wonderful home. While we are here, we walk into town to the coffee shop, restaurants and shopping; enjoy afternoons at the bay/ocean; kayak and SUP; bike on the amazing trails to Rehoboth; do yoga outside at the beach and canal park; shop at the outlets; listen to live music in Dewey; enjoy the nature and history of Cape Henlopen; and get our fill of boardwalk treats in Rehoboth. It is the perfect escape!

We value you so much, and feel like it's your home as much as ours - you have been here every summer since we purchased it! I know you cherish the great memories you have from your summers in Lewes, and I'm so glad you found our cottage all those years ago.

Beautiful Renovation

  • 5 of 5

I already loved this wonderful beach cottage in Lewes, but the renovation has made it even more fabulous! The addition of a family room and breakfast area off the kitchen have transformed it into a bright, happy place to spend time relaxing and enjoying our beach vacation. The screened in porch is my favorite place for morning coffee and the backyard is pretty and private. I highly recommend this home for your next stay - it's great for families, a girls trip, or a relaxing time away with your spouse.

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Lewes before and weren't sure what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. The town of Lewes was lovely, full of little shops and great places to eat, historic sites and loads of charm! Our rental there was wonderful. The house is completely updated and decorated in a beachy way, just the way I would've done it. There is plenty of room and very comfortable and it is equipped with everything you could want. The location is great being only a couple of blocks from a market and a few more blocks from the cute downtown area with restaurants and shops. It was a great spot and we really enjoyed our stay. Cheryl was very helpful and easy to deal with, patiently answering my questions. Overall it was a wonderful experience and we would definitely recommend this rental to everyone. We look forward to returning soon!

Perfectly beachy!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two sons (age 2 and 5), our dog, my dad and I had a great time in Lewes staying in this house. Having bedrooms and baths upstairs and downstairs offered us plenty of space so we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. The outdoor shower was a favorite for the kids! It's conveniently located and very nicely decorated.

Best place to stay in Lewes

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was amazing! The house is incredible. The location is perfect. You can walk into town, to Dairy Queen, and Scoops, and to the beach. The house is beautiful. The rooms and beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are very nice too. The kitchen is well stocked, functional, and open so the cook can enjoy themselves too. The grill is so nice! We had fabulous BBQ one night. The yard, front porch, and back deck are great. The owner is responsive and very nice. Stop looking and pick this place! It's really something special.

Fantastic home in great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly layed out property with several zones to relax. The bedrooms are ideally decorated and comfortable. Sure to suit everyone in your party.

The kitchen is amply supplied with condiments and cookware. Certain to meet your needs.

They are pet friendly, as well as the city itself. Great space for our pups. We brought our dog bowls, but saw they have dog supplies as well.

Nice selection of games and movies. Plenty of entertainment options in case you have some rainy days.

Highly recommend this property.
