TRAVELER MAGAZINE VOTED OUR BEACH AS ONE OF THE TOP TEN IN THE WORLD.

Called 'THE QUIET RESORTS' Bethany Beach is known for its family friendly nature.

Our house is across the street from Fresh Pond State Park and a short drive to the DE State Seashore Beach and Park. Prickly Pear trail has a 3 mile biking hiking trail with access to a view of the bay and to Route One and nearby Ocean Beaches.

The Seashore Park includes six miles of Ocean and Bay Beaches. It includes 2825 acres bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Indian River and Rehoboth Bays to the west.

3 Ocean side beaches have lifeguards from 9 to 5 and include bath houses with hot showers and changing rooms. All 3 beaches include snack bars, umbrella rental, etc. on the beach.

Activities at the Park include surfing fishing camping boating and playgrounds. Coin, Key Box, Comfort, and several more Beaches include drive on fishing and surfing.

There is a designated equestrian area and both Ocean and Bay side kite boarding and kite surfing.

The Indian River Inlet includes daily family activities with charcoal grills, Hammerheads Restaurant, Full Day and 1/2 Day charter boat fishing and private boat rentals featuring deep sea fishing.

A four mile drive north (just past the Inlet bridge) is the Life Saving Museum on the Ocean side. ! mile more to the North Bay side in Old Inlet Bait and Tackle. The Evans family have mid week fishing lessons and seminars for new fishermen.

Bear Trap dunes Golf Course, noted by GOLF WEEK MAGAZINE as the best in Delaware and one of the best in the USA is just a 3 mile drive from the neighborhood. Open to the public they offer great mid week and late afternoon discounted greens fees.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We have lived in Bethany Beach for nearly 25 years. The family picture was taken during our Christmas Reunion. We all stayed together in our house. The backdrop is the dock down the street at the Salt Pond. There is also a studio, which is in use year round rental. We live in the area as do most of our family especially in the summer. We love this area and the family small town atmosphere in the 'Quiet Resorts' and hope you enjoy it as well.

Why the Owner Chose Bethany Beach, DE, USA:
This very private community we always loved the setting. The house is designed to maximize covenience and utility for a large family yet maintain individual privacy. The Kitchen and Living area are on the second floor for the view. The open 2 story foyer unites upstairs with downstairs. Yet the bedroom occupants can get quiet respite from the rest of the house by simply closing their door. It is secluded yet very convenient. It is a 3 hour drive from the bridges and tunnels into NYC. It takes less than 3 hours from Philadelphia. It takes 45 minutes to get to Salisbury, MD. Baltimore and Washington are each about 2-3 hours. All final driving times depend upon traffic so we always leave as early as possible. But the property is very convenient to local attractions, businesses and shopping as well. The beaches are just down the street. The State Park system is across the street. Ocean City amusement parks and night life are a 15 minute drive. Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach are 10-15 minutes away in the opposite direction.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is enough to do within walking/biking distance that you can literally stay here for the week and never use your car. However, Movie Theaters, Amusement Parks, Water Slides, Resturants, Grocery Stores and other attractions are very close. We fell in love with the Salt Pond and the activities here. We especially loved kayaking and crabbing with young children. Early moning sunrises with a cup of coffee and a camera while sitting at the dock or later at night watching the sunset are a unique treasure here. If you have young children and/or grandchildren you must visit FUNLAND in Rehoboth Beach. This family owned amsement park has been in continuous operation for over 60 years and is considered a National Treasure. The rides designed for toddlers are so amazingly simple and inepensive for young parents that it is a miracle that they still thrive economically.
