Overview

About the property

Charming cottage - 4bdrm, 2 ba. Spacious fenced yard w/firepit, porch & patio

The Gatehouse Cottage is classic Lewes Beach. This family friendly home is new to the rental market in 2016, recently updated, clean and comfortable. The house is located at the end of a quiet street and borders City of Lewes open space. The secluded back yard has a fire pit area, patio and screened in porch. Two person kayak, beach chairs, various outdoor and board games included. Kitchen is well supplied with all of the cooking and dining essentials. Excellent location - an easy stroll to the beach, walk or bike into town for restaurants, shopping, Canalfront Park, and historic sites. The Cape May Lewes Ferry ,Cape Henelopen State Park, and hiking & biking trails are less than 3 miles away. A fabulous location to enjoy Lewes in any season!

For bookings made after 8/1/2017, well behaved dogs are considered for an additional fee of $75 for 3 nights or less, $125 for 4 nights or more.

Linens and bath towels are provided during off season/short term/weekend rentals. During peak summer season (Memorial Day - Labor Day), we can provide linens (beds will be made), bath and beach towels for an additional fee of $250. This covers the expense of additional house keeping and laundry services associated with same day rental turnovers.

A FEW MORE DETAILS ABOUT OUR LOCATION: We are on Clayton Avenue, a side street off of Cedar Street which runs the length of Lewes Beach. Our beach is approximately half a mile from the public beach which sits next to the large public parking area near the Dairy Queen. (Thus making our location less crowded!)

There are several options for walking or biking into town. We are located at the end of a dead end street. There are trails at the end of our street that lead into town towards the boatyard and Irish Eyes at the end of Anglers Road. In addition, Bay Avenue is the beach road 7 houses away that runs parallel to Cedar Street. Bay Avenue is very pedestrian and bike friendly with little car traffic. Approximately a half mile walk or bike ride will take you to Savannah Road near Dairy Queen and 2 Dips Ice Cream. From there, you can continue into town (about another half mile) on sidewalks to enjoy shopping, restaurants, Canalfront Park, and historic sites.

A FEW MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE HOUSE LAYOUT: Our 1950's cottage is approximately 1500 square feet and all on one floor. The king bedroom and one of the twin rooms are connected, sharing a Jack and Jill style bathroom. The queen bedroom and the other twin bedroom are next to each other with another full bath across the hall. A very nice set up for two families vacationing together.

About Stephanie Gates

Our family has enjoyed Lewes Beach for many years. We hope your family will enjoy our home and Lewes just as much as we do!

Stephanie Gates purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Stephanie Gates chose Lewes Beach (East of Canal)

Lewes is a great place to visit any time of year. Enjoy Lewes Beach on the bay, or Cape Henelopen State Park for the ocean. Miles of great hiking and biking trails. Downtown is quaint and historic with excellent restaurants and shopping. For a change of pace, only a short car ride to movies, outlet shopping, more restaurants, Rehoboth and Dewey Beach.

What makes this cottage unique

This home is freshly updated, clean and comfortable! A quiet location that is convenient to everything Lewes has to offer. After spending the day at the beach, hiking, biking, kayaking, shopping, sightseeing or whatever you love doing in and around Lewes, you will be very comfortable in this recently updated home. The quiet and secluded porch is a great spot to relax with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. The yard has lots of space for the kids to play and sits next to City of Lewes open space. Build a bonfire in the backyard fire pit and relax at the end of the day. Dine in town, or cook at home - our kitchen is well equipped with all of your cooking and dining essentials.

Location

Great location, steps away from Lewes Beach. Walk or bike to downtown for shopping, restaurants, Lewes Canalfront Park and historic sites. Cape Henelopen State Park, Cape May - Lewes Ferry, biking and hiking trails are less than 3 miles away. Location, location, location!

The house is very close to the beach & at the end of a quiet street. The house was fully equipped with all the necessary items. The outdoor living space is perfect for relaxing after a busy day!

Really enjoyed our stay at Lewes Beach! Lovely home and so close to the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time at Lewes Beach and the house worked out perfectly for our family! Our host, Stephanie, was very helpful and always in touch. She left us a bottle of wine for our stay, very sweet of her! Loved the decor of the house and it was very clean!! Lots of room for us all to spread out, dining area and kitchen were wonderful! The short walk to the beach was perfect for us since we had our grandson with us. The town of Lewes was very quaint with great restaurants and shops! We would definitely come back for another visit!! Many thanks to our great host!!

A nicely maintained cottage with plenty of room for the whole family in the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean and comfortable. It had everything needed to make our stay delightful. The linen rental was especially helpful since I flew in. The location was quiet and a block from the beach. My daughter in law spent almost all her time swimming. The water was calm and the beach was not crowded. I loved the town of Lewes. Such a charming place!

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

We vacation with one other family every year and this house had the best set up by far. Very kid friendly with lots of items on hand for the little ones. Beach is a very short walk and not at all crowded. We had a great time and will definitely consider coming here again next year!
