Property description

Mallard Lakes is great place to relax and enjoy all the wild birds that visit the ponds and water ways that are in our quite community.

A perfect place to walk and look at the wild animals that also live on the shore. You can sit on the screened in deck and just watch the sun set over the pond. In the morning the breeze that blows of the pond makes the home very comfortable and relaxing.

We are located 2.5 hour drive from Baltimore and 3 hour drive from Washington DC and just 2 miles from the Delaware and Maryland beaches.
If you want to play Tennis or swim in the pool we have two locations for both, next to the main pool area is a outdoor shuffleboard court that's fun for everyone. Across from the main pool near the pond are the outside grills that can be used by all.

Going out to eat can be close , across Rt 54 at Smitty McGehee or the sub shop or breakfast shop or take a few minute drive toward the beach and you have Harpoon Hanna's witch has great lunch and dinner menu's. The boardwalk is a few miles away and has all kinds of great places to eat.

Planning a day trip on the shore, one place we enjoy visiting is Berlin MD it about 30 minutes away but when you get there its like going back in time . This is the town they shot a movie in years ago and the town loved it. You can shop at all kinds of nice shops eat lunch or dinner in the hotel in the center of town or just take a relaxing walk in town.
If your planning a big day of shopping then Delaware is the place to go....TAX FREE ....they have all kinds of outlet stores in Rehobeth area on Rt 1 please make this a go to place for all kinds of great deals.
