The State of Delaware has no natural lakes, but there are many scenic water front bodies of water which give the look and feel of natural lakes. A vast majority of these are located in the Sussex County and they provide a large variety of sunny beach resorts where one can enjoy their vacations. Outdoor activities are a big part of the plans for the families that decide to vacation in these lake house rentals. Many of these vacation rental homes are situated in forested areas with scenic views of the lakes. Vacationing in one of these areas means one can enjoy horseback riding, mountain biking, rafting, taking nature hikes, and a host of other activities.
The lakefront vacation homes found in Mallard Lakes allow one to relax and enjoy their vacation without any worries. Many of the vacation homes provide beautiful views of the lake with the added benefit of access to the beach within a few miles. Many of the homes are equipped with two bedrooms and one and a half bath. They provide ample room for the whole family. For those who prefer the more modern amenities the homes have access to TV, DVD, and cable. Many facilities even make swimming pools, playgrounds and tennis courts available for the enjoyment of their tenants.
There is plenty to do around the state of Delaware. History buffs can take a trip on the colonial ship of Kalmar Nyckel or take a balloon ride in the nearby New Castle County. One can even go duck hunting in Kent County. One can enjoy all that the state has to offer while staying in one of the many lake house rentals available.
In addition to Mallard Lakes, Sussex County is home to Millsboro Pound, Records Pond and Trap Pond. There are many scenic areas near the river for canoeing and wildlife areas in the state parks. Fishing is a great activity in these ponds, even though they are rather small in size. Many fishing contests are held throughout the year. The town of Millsboro offers access to all local amenities and has a small town charm and hospitality.
If boating is the activity of choice, many lakes have this facility available. If one owns a boat, they should consider bringing it so they can spend time on the water fishing or even waterskiing. Spend quality time with the family on the water front or basking in the sun and enjoying the peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Delaware offers a great place for a family vacation with something for everyone. Renting a vacation home on the lake front provides the ideal place for settling a family in a comfortable setting and then taking in everything the area has to offer. The rental homes are available in numerous price ranges to suit all budget needs and provide the ideal vacation for the whole family.
