The house is located on Camden Ave which is a side street off of Cedar Ave which runs the length of Lewes Beach. The beach (which is an easy 2 min walk) is more or less 'private' to those staying on Lewes beach as the closest public parking area is over 1 mile away. Also, the beach is large and great for kids as the waves from the Delaware Bay are much smaller than the Atlantic Ocean.
Downtown Historic Lewes:
Second Street has unique, charming shops and a variety of restaurants to choose from. The downtown area also includes historic landmarks, waterfront access, museums, parks, and community events.
Options for biking abound; from a leisurely ride down Bay Ave to more long-distance rides on the bike paths that connect Lewes, Reboboth and Cape Henlopen State Park. Fishing opportunities are plentiful as well. You can surf-fish right off Lewes beach anytime in the off season and during designated hours in the summer. Further, there are piers, inlets, and charter fishing opportunities all within 1-2 miles of the house. For water sports, kayak and paddle board rentals are available through outfitters in Lewes. Cape Henlopen State Park is nearby as well, accessible by bike or car. It offers numerous outdoor activities of its own, including ocean access, hiking, frisbee golf, basketball, playgrounds, and observation towers and other landmarks from WWII.
Rehoboth Beach is a short drive away and offers the traditional boardwalk activities & excitement. Rehoboth is also home to many popular outlet retailers, providing entertainment for the avid or recreational shopper.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Jason grew up spending summer vacations at Lewes beach and we now enjoy spending our own vacations here with our boys.
Why the Owner Chose Lewes Beach (East of Canal) (Lewes, DE, USA):
We enjoy the charm of Lewes and the relaxed feel it offers for low-key family time at the beach and in the community, while also offering other amenities and forms of entertainment a short distance away.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property has been in Jason's family for many years and when we designed and rebuilt the current home several years ago, we did so with families in mind, making it a place where extended family could gather and relax together as well as providing space for quiet respites. It has proved to serve us well in this regard and it's proximity to the beach and biking on Bay Ave are a huge bonus with our children.
