Adorable, comfortable, and clean!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so cute and comfortable. We stayed here for our honeymoon, and it was so much nicer than a hotel would have been. We could make our own meals or heat up leftovers from one of the yummy restaurants in downtown Lewes. We also had plenty of space to watch a movie or play board games. The bed and couches are comfortable, and everything is very clean. There are also little candles in the kitchen and on the stairs that come on by themselves in the evening, and that was just so cute. I enjoyed seeing bunnies and deer in the yard as well! We were close to Lewes Beach and Cape Henlopen State Park (and we enjoyed both). I would definitely stay here again!

To be completely frank, I would only mention three very *small* things: 1. It would have been nice to have a washer and dryer, too. 2. Even though there are plenty of trees blocking your view of the main road, if you're used to a *very* quiet place, then be aware that you are able to hear some cars driving by (and for us, construction crews) at night if the windows are open. Just make sure to close the windows before you go to bed, if that might bother you. 3. If you are relaxing in bed upstairs and need to use the restroom, then just be aware that you will have to walk downstairs to do that.

I am very happy with our experience and would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone coming to the area! My husband and I both had a great time. Thank you, Joanne!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was very cozy and beautifully decorated. It was just perfect for our girls' week at the beach - close to several beaches, lots of shopping and many other attractions. The mattress upstairs was fantastic and we slept great! Joanna was very responsive to all requests/questions, and we had everything we needed for a wonderful week. Would definitely come back.

Clean cottage and nice location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the cottage. The inside was as pictured and the kitchen was the right size for what little we ate there. The outdoor fire pit and porch was really nice and we wished we could have used it more than we did. Overall we will definitely be considering it on our next trip to Delaware.

Quaint Cottage - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cottage! It is conveniently located in close proximity to all of the DE beaches, shopping and great restaurants, in and near, the Lewes area. The home is clean and tastefully decorated! Joanne is wonderful! She accommodated our late arrival time (after 8 pm). I will definitely book with Joanne again the next time we will be in the Lewes, DE area!

Small treasure

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a couple's get away. The decor was charming and the whole place an impeccable hideaway! Great launching point for the southern beaches. Sooo much better and relaxing to be tucked away rather than the crowded condo high rises!! Communication quick and easy too. Lots of tips from locals for best places for sunsets over water and favorite swim spots. Enjoy your own explorations but don't miss the state park at Cape Henlopen and also under Indian bridge. Parking passes can be purchased from the town hall for Dewey beach (guarded beach and not at all crowded). If there is anything to improved upon it would be to add an outdoor shower for easier de-sanding. The cottage was such a treasure!!

Loved the home! Loved how welcoming Delaware people are! Loved the trip!!! Highly recommend renting it if you can!! Ginny & Mark

Beautiful Cottage, Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautiful and so cozy! We loved our stay in Lewes. The cottage is super clean (I'm very particular) and it is a great location if you want to visit several of the beaches. We especially liked Cape Henlopen. Our favorite restaurant was Salt Air in Rehoboth, but there are a lot of options in the area. Joanne is great to work with and makes sure you have a smooth stay. Recommend, recommend, recommend!
