Winter blues hitting you hard this year? Maybe it’s time to consider purchasing a getaway vacation home, someplace near the ocean and yet in a charming town with plenty of appeal even when the weather isn’t cooperating with a beach day.
If this scenario appeals to you, Canary Creek, a new development by NVHomes in Lewes, Del., may be your next destination. Canary Creek residents can walk to shops and restaurants in Historic Lewes and ride bikes to the beach or to Cape Henlopen State Park. The Cape May-Lewes Ferry links Delaware with the Victorian charms of Cape May, N.J., for a day trip into the past.
Lewes has antique shops, art galleries and a wide variety of restaurants as well as the beach, plus residents can explore other nearby beaches and towns, including Bethany and Rehoboth.
Lawn care is included in Canary Creek homeowners association dues of $106 per month, enabling residents to spend carefree weekends whenever they visit.
