In addition to all the amenities as advertised, this historic cottage was absolutely charming inside and out. Beautiful setting on Silver Lake and short walk to beach and town. Whimsical garden (the hydrangeas were in full bloom), lovely patio, and interior beachy comfortable feel/layout. Many lovely restaurants in town, however I would advise making reservations before your trip. We loved Bramble and Brine in Rehoboth, and the walkable town of Dewey had some venues for our 20 something members. My family thoroughly enjoyed our time including our chihuahuas. It was so relaxing having them with us. The dogs loved their vacation too. A very dog friendly town and beach nearby. We would definitely recommend this home any time of year. Complete ease of rental process and very thorough information.

Wonderful stay on Silver Lake

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my daughters and there families and it was a great week. House was compatible for small children. Kitchen is well appointed, garden was perfect for all ages, and the landscaping is fabulous. Hosts gave us clear and easy instructions with reminders of what was expected. It's a lovely house, well appointed but family friendly. I recommend it highly

True 'Home Away from Home'

Being 'newbies' to both the HomeAway rental site and the Rehoboth area our family was not sure what to expect. Happily on both counts we were very pleased. HomeAway made the process of finding 217 Lake Drive a breeze and residing for the week there made Rehoboth most enjoyable. The 'cottage' is quite spacious and yet feels very cozy. There are so many inviting nooks and spaces throughout the house, inside and out. A week didn't seem like enough time to fully enjoy them all.
The kitchen was abundantly stocked with any and every kind of utensil, pots, pans, glasses, dishes and even many household staples.
The owner's desire to provide a pleasant and carefree vacation experience is evident in their thoughtful, attentive management, as well as the well-kept, charming residence they offer.
The location is prime! Close enough to walk to many sites, shops & restaurants yet nestled into a quiet, low-key neighborhood.
If you venture south for a day, Coin Beach is laid back and great for dogs. A little bit farther south, in Bethany, is a great little restaurant - 'Off The Hook' - with creative & fresh menu items & exceptional service.
Definitely lots in the area around this house and the Delaware shore to explore and keep drawing us back. Wait!...did I mention tax-free, outlet shopping!?!...😉
You will love this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your glowing review. We try very hard to think of all the things a guest could want and to make sure they are available. We visit the house during the season between every other guest to address any issues that have been reported and to make sure the garden is looking its best.

Beautiful Garden, Wonder-Full House

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed every minute of our stay in 3551797. The owners were incredibly responsive and organized, sending information about check-in and check-out via e-mail, right when we needed it. I was pleasantly surprised to find the house has upgraded bathrooms and kitchen...all lovely. We enjoyed the cool breezes on the lake-side dock. And, it's an easy walk to downtown Rehoboth restaurants. The house is a somewhat long walk (3 longish blocks) to the beach, if you're carrying chairs that is, so we drove one car to the beach loaded down with equipment, then everyone walked back and forth with no problem. The house has such beautiful furnishings and curated objects of interest, plus so many books to entice summer reading. The 2 house parking passes were very happily used, in addition to the two off-street parking spots. The window (upstairs) and central (downstairs) air conditioners worked very well. Do buy some extra ice for beer cooler and beverages. Really loved the house!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. I am glad you found our suggestion about driving the heavy beach equipment up to the beach in the morning helpful. The walk seems long when you are carrying lots of stuff, but is easy when you just have your book. The suggestion about getting extra ice is a good one; the ice maker cannot keep up with a houseful of folks on a hot summer day. We add this tip to the info we provide online and at the house so that guests will not run out.

Lake Drive cottage is truly a -- Home Away

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful vacation we had! We couldn't get over how well you've outfitted the kitchen and dining room -- we were able to cook most of our meals in the kitchen or on the grill -- which is really a good one. Glad you added the table to the patio as we used it most nights to enjoy dinner by the lake. We so enjoyed being able to walk across to the dock and watch the sunsets -- we even saw a Great Blue Heron on two different days.

The ceiling fans in all the rooms were usually enough to keep us comfortable at night but it was great having the whole house fan and air conditioners to quickly get things cooled down.

Your suggestion to take a car up to the beach with all our stuff and leave it for the day was great since it's such a short walk back to the house -- we came back each day for lunch. We loved the fact the the house is so centrally located -- we could easily walk to the beach, the boardwalk, restaurants and shops -- and it was a short drive to supermarkets and larger stores. I would recommend 217 Lake Drive to anyone who is looking for a homey, comfortable and convenient place to stay at Rehoboth Beach.

We had a great time, the house is comfortable. We loved time on the dock, sitting on the patio and enjoying crabs, grilling out! The neighborhood is quiet.

From the Owner

This house has it all! It's right on the lake for bird watching, fishing, and peaceful times on the dock. But... it's still at the beach!! We walk or bike to the beach in under five minutes. We walk to the shops and eateries in town in just 10 minutes. This cottage comes with its own romantic history. It was built by a bootlegger who picked up shipments on the ocean front, brought them across Silver Lake and stored them in the basement. It's a perfect place to bring our dogs. We can let them out in the yard anytime. There's also a park two blocks away, and of course the beach in the early morning and evening - Dewey Beach only in the Summer, but it's just an extra block to walk.
