Feel the beautiful sand through your toes as you step out the back door. Run through the small waves at low tide with your kids or fish in the evening. Our cottage is one of only a few available for rent on the Bay.The beach IS your backyard. You can grab a kayak from the garage and cruise down the bay. Take a bike ride on the miles & miles of trails that connect Lewes to Rehobeth, or maybe just head down to local store for local fresh corn and vegetables. Use the gas Weber grill to cook up a the fish you just caught. There are so many relaxing things to do, a favorite word - Ahhhhh!
4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, beachfront

About Nancy Allen
I grew up in this house on the beach until I was eight. Sometimes my brothers and I would get up early and walk to the jetty to catch crabs. In the summer we spent the day swimming sailing and playing on the beach. After we moved to Pennsylvania, we went back every summer. One of my brothers was married on the beach in front of the house. Now my family continues to visit for two weeks every summer, and we invite you to also enjoy this wonderful cottage.
Nancy Allen purchased this Cottage in 1949
Why Nancy Allen chose Lewes Beach (East of Canal)
Our parents built this house back when Lewes was a tiny town with a very smelly Fish factory down where the ferry now comes in. They were practically giving away 99 year leases back then. Building this house was one of the smartest things our parents ever did. A lasting legacy.
What makes this Cottage unique
One thing that has never changed here is the feeling of intimacy with the beach. It is literally your back yard. The kids can play on the sandbar at low tide, you can stroll the beach or just hang out without feeling crowded. At the end of the day, take in an incredible sunset. There are not many beaches like this around anymore.

Cozy, vintage home right on the beach!
Love the dog friendly property. We return every year. Beach is never crowded. The beach and water are pristine. There is a great kayak for your use, too. The house is comfortable, and the kitchen is great for renters who love to cook. 2 large TVs, games and puzzles for rainy days. The back porch is perfect for dining and relaxing. Room unit air conditioners do a great job and eliminate cooling rooms that are not in use.
Beautiful cottage makes you feel right at home
The house was charming and comfortable. The convenience of being on right on the bay was what we were looking for. Being a bit away from the center of Lewes was ideal, as the street was quiet and the beach was practically a private beach. Everything worked out wonderfully for my family. We want to go back next summer.
Thank you. I am glad you had a wonderful time. It’s my favorite place. On my way there now!

The Allen family have owned their family home for many years, and have improved the house significantly over time. We have always loved the house and the Lewes area.
Absolutely loved our stay here. This property has tons of extras and was very comfortable and convenient. Looking forward to staying here in years to come.
