About Pam and Scott Lackman

This is our future retirement home and we can't wait to be here full time – less than a year to go! We will be sharing our home with our guests until the end of November 2017. We have so enjoyed hearing about the wonderful memories that our guests have made at our home, it has been a great experience! We have truly been blessed to have wonderful people enjoy our home.

We have enjoyed the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach area for the last four decades with family and friends and are happy to now own a home here. We currently live and work in the Lehigh Valley Area of Pennsylvania and visit as much as we can to enjoy the beach and the peaceful setting of our home.

Pam and Scott Lackman purchased this house in 2012

Why Pam and Scott Lackman chose Delaware

We love the closeness to the beach, restaurants and shopping but love to come back to our serene setting on Love Creek.

What makes this house unique

When we were looking for our retirement home we fell in love with the mature trees, the private location, the sunsets over Love Creek and our amazing home.

There is nothing like sitting on the flagstone patio in the morning to greet the day and watch the birds come to visit the feeders and watch the ospreys and bald eagles fly over Love Creek. And then at the end of a busy day at the beach, shopping or sightseeing to come back, sit out on the patio and watch the sunset. And because there are no distracting lights, the stars at night are incredible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You have a beautiful home – we especially enjoyed the birds being the only “life” noise of the week! Thank you for sharing your home.

A relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is not a typical beach rental. It’s the owners' future retirement home on a premium lot at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet well maintained subdivision. You truly feel like their welcome guests staying here. The backyard is very private as there are many trees with wetlands and Love Creek beyond. We found it very relaxing to sit in the rocking chairs on the flagstone patio enjoying this natural setting. The great room takes advantage of this view with an abundance of windows. It’s a short drive from this home to Lewes or Rehoboth Beach and all the restaurants and stores you’ll need on your vacation. We were here in October and particularly enjoyed hiking the many trails and walking along the beaches in Cape Henlopen State Park. We also visited the nearby Prime Hook and Bombay National Wildlife Refuges along the Delaware Bay to do some bird watching. If you enjoy ocean beaches, wetlands and viewing wildlife then you'll want to enjoy quality time here with family and/or friends. The owners were very professional and helpful in making our rental reservation.

Nice place

Very nice home. Clean and close to beach. We enjoyed the quick trip to the beach and local community pool.

Fourth of July Week

  • 5 of 5

We had an outstanding time. Beautiful home with everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. We got a lot of use out of the community pool, which was uncrowded almost every time we visited. Relaxing on the back patio, we did a lot of bird-watching and also saw a few deer throughout the week. Watched the fireworks from the patio on July 3. Generally, considering traffic, it usually took from 10 to 30 minutes to drive to Lewes Beach, restaurants, or the Rehoboth boardwalk. All in all, this was probably the best vacation house we have rented in any of the locations we've visited over the years. Thanks to Pam and Scott for the use of your home.

Owner's Response: The July 4th week is always the most crowded at the beach and it is so nice that we have the neighborhood pool just a short walk away during this busy time of year. And with the lap lanes and the never crowded pool area it is like having your own private pool. And thanks to our neighbor across Love Creek, we always have our own fireworks display without having to leave the patio! We are so delighted to have our home provide such a great vacation experience. We have been so fortunate to have wonderful guests that appreciate all our home has to offer. Thank you for your very kind words, it is very special to us that you found our home to be one of the best in your vacation experience.

wonderful and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a few days at this lovely home....our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! It was the perfect size for the six of us...plenty of room to spread out but cozy enough to have relaxing family time. The property is exactly as pictured; beautifully furnished with an open layout. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed and the rooms clean and tidy. It is really obvious that the property owners take pride in their home. Communication with the owners was exceptional, always answering questions immediately. They even included very clear instructions at the house along with info. about the area attractions (which we appreciated very much). The best part about the house is the location - it is central to everything (Cape Henlopen Park, Ferry, Rehobeth beach, outlets, go-karts...) but far enough away to get peace and quiet. Ideal home in every way!!!

Owner's Response: We are always so pleased when our guests can appreciate all the advantages of the location of our home – a short drive to all the attractions but away from the noise and crowds. We think there is no better spot! Thank you for letting us know how much you enjoyed your time at our home - it is always too short of a visit!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, super clean and in a great location. Everything is within 20 minutes of the location. The community pool is great and very friendly neighborhood...definately recommend.

Owner's Response: It is all about location and our home offers a quiet and peaceful setting for those that appreciate being away from the noise and crowds of the in-town beach rental. And everything is still within a short distance when you want to go to the beach or visit the boardwalk. But there is nothing like coming back to the relaxing feel of the patio and our home when the vacation activities are done. Thank you for your very kind words.

Very nice property in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

The house itself was tucked away in a nice and quiet neighborhood. It was very well decorated, comfortable and fully stocked with everything you need. We wished we had more time to take advantage of the nice patio area! The pier and pool were a short walk away (especially with the path to the pool). It was only a little difficult to get there because it was pretty hot and we have a 9 month old. We were not familiar with the area, so at first, things seemed far away. But after driving a couple of times to the beach and parks, it was no big deal. Rehoboth was also just a short drive away (about 20 min depending on traffic). Overall, we really enjoyed our experience here and the homeowners were very accommodating and quick to respond. We have already talked about coming back to Lewes!

Owner's Response: Your review highlights some of the features that make our home a great choice for a visit or vacation to the area - close to everything but still quiet and peaceful. Our home offers a relaxing alternative for those that appreciate being away from the noise and crowds of the in town beach rental. We strive very hard to make sure all our guests have a five star experience, so we are disappointed that we fell short of that goal in this review. We will continue to make the comfort and satisfaction of our guests a priority and will do our best to make sure our guests have a great vacation experience.

Since our property backs up to Love Creek, kayaking, canoeing, crabbing and fishing are just a few steps away at our private community dock. Also enjoy our private community swimming pool, tennis court and walking trails. And Cape Henlopen State Park, the Cape May Lewes Ferry, Historic Lewes and Rehoboth Beach are all within a very short drive. And don't forget the shopping at nearby outlets.
