About Owner / Property Manager

We are a family of six with 4 boys who have found our dream home. We always wanted to be on the water as well as enjoy the sun and fun of the beach. Now we have the best of both worlds. We spend our days in Lewes with so much activity, including swimming, fishing and boating right off our property as well as great entertaining off our large back porch. Cocktails on the sun porch overlooking Red Mill Pond are divine! Lewes beach with its calm waves is just a 10 minute ride away.

On those few rainy days, we play board games, curl up with a good book, or get the competition going in the game room with billiards and air hockey. Constant activity at this house!

Owner / Property Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Lewes

We fell in love with the charm of historic Lewes and calm waves of Lewes bay. When we saw this home on beautiful Red Mill Pond, we knew our dreams had come true.

Peaceful Respite from Hustle & Bustle

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house, nestled in trees and on a beautiful lake. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked (does need more silverware). We enjoyed fishing from the dock, roasting s'mores by the fire, and kayaking (we rented from nearby shop). The owners were very responsive and accomodating. Future renters should be aware that you will need to drive your car to go ANYWHERE.

Relaxing and peaceful

Had a wonderful week, very relaxing. This was our second year at the lake house, and we not disappointed. Very clean and well organized, the house had everything we needed. Play room was a big hit with the grandchildren. We hated to leave!!

Lovely. Wonderful place for children. Only potential problem was mosquito spraying which happened during our stay which may have been scheduled by neighborhood association, and not under the control of the owners. Our grandson must carry an Epipen because he has life-threatening allergies. Mosquito control is critically important, but we should have been informed prior to confirming booking. We stayed inside after I went out into the spray to ask the sprayer how much time he recommended that we stay inside. Grandson was not hurt, but this was deeply unsettling experience. Again, the owner may not have even know that the property was to be sprayed during our stay. In fact our grandson fell in love with the Toy Story Buz Lightyear "wings" which the owners left for him to play in a room which was actually fulled with other toys.

Other than that, we would give the house and grounds a superior rating. The house and grounds are speculative.

Relaxing & creating memories

This property was beautiful. The home is very comfortable, spacious and fun. The view of the pond and the yard leading to the pond were spectacular! Brought back childhood memories and created new memories for my family.

relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

my husband and I spent 1 week at the lake house with our son and his family, we had a wonderful time. the house was plenty big for all of us, very clean and bright. the views of the lake were awesome. we loved playing pool in the evenings, and our grandsons loved the play room, it was like Christmas morning. we had fishing contests and enjoyed our canoe on the lovely lake. very relaxing and quiet. we also liked the neighborhood where you can bike, jog or take morning walks. we went to the beach just about every day, our fav. was Henelopen state park. would come back again. thanks for sharing your home.

We've been coming to Lewes for many years and have stayed in private campgrounds, state parks, and a private home in town. This is our second stay at this house. Location is convent and quiet. The house is beautifully decorated and very clean. Everything is provided that makes packing for a beach vacation very simple. We have 2 teenage daughters and they agree with us, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Lewes.
