Perfect village rental in the heart of charming Lewes

  • 5 of 5

We were in Delaware for an elopement wedding/family meet and greet in nearby Milton and just needed a little place to sleep and something "un touristy" like an overpriced seasonal hotel room. This apartment is a gem and everything was what we needed. Sitting area has a lot of local reading material, the kitchen and bathroom were clean and tastefully decorated. The bedroom was also clean and the bed very comfy. Because you're in a building over a restaurant, there are outside lights that stay on all night, so if you need complete darkness to sleep, bring your sleeping mask.

You cannot beat this location-step outside and you're on Market street in the heart of Lewes and you can walk everywhere--even to the beach! There are tons of cute shops and restaurants and the deli on the corner is awesome, as was Nectar--great place for a green drink or a hearty meal.

Lewes has quite a history and history buffs will appreciate this town as well.

The only potential difficulty for some may be (and it didn't turn out to be as bad as I thought when we couldn't find parking), is that the parking in front of the place is metered--$1.00 per hour with a 2 hour time limit. However, we DID find parking just down the street and it was easily walkable. As you can imagine, it's a popular place, so parking is at a premium and we managed to navigate that very well with a little extra effort on our part. We were able to park overnight right in front of the apartment, as they only enforce the meters between the hours of 9 a.m -6 p.m.

The owner was very easy to communicate with and I highly recommend them and this apartment. It's perfect for two people, centrally located, clean and comfy.

Great location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying right in the heart of town! The suite is spacious and the full kitchen is very convenient. Really enjoyed being able to pop into the restaurant downstairs for a quick drink or snack.

Lovely lodgings, town, people, food, oh my!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely fell in love with Lewes! The suite is a sweet gem tucked into the heart of this lovely seaside town. Awesome food experiences at the Gate House, Agave and Patty's and genuinely friendly folks everywhere. Not to go unmentioned are the many other restaurants and shopping experiences that were at hand! We will be back!

The Gate House in Lewis

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 night stay at the Gate House in Lewis, Delaware was great! The apartment was very clean, charming, and neat. A restaurant is below the

apartment and it was quiet. The location was excellent, you park your car and do not have to move it. You are in walking distance to

the beach, center of town and restaurants. I would definitely book it again.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from 3 nights in the Gate House apartment. It is just as represented in the information. The apartment is small but very well decorated, very clean, and perfect for two people. It is right in the heart of the Historic District of Lewes so you can walk to all the lovely shops, interesting museums, and great restaurants. You will have to drive to any of the beaches but there is plenty of parking available there. And it is up a flight of stairs as advertised so be aware. We had no problem with the stairs even hauling our stuff up and down.

Parking is available for free just a few minutes walk away and there is plenty of space right in front to load or unload. If you prefer you can park right out front and feed the meters from 9 am to 6 pm. Either way we felt our car was very safe.

There is a Keurig but no coffee pot and there is no place to hang wet bathing suits and towels except over the shower rod. Paper towels, coffee pods, kitchen soap was all provided so there were the necessities required to hold you for a couple days!

There is some noise as you are right in the town. For example, the trash truck came on Wednesday morning but we just rolled over and went back to sleep. Overall noise was not a problem.

Everyone in the transaction was great. Everything went just as planned!
