On another thread Elizamary mentioned that there are a lot of small communities near her with lakes. That is what I'm looking for. What are the names of these communities and where are they located?

Thanks!

Hello ralgam.........
Lakes are all over DE. I can't think of the names of them but lakes are just about in every town.
I went looking for the thread but forgot where I posted that.
Some of our residents have boats and they really do enjoy going out on the lakes in the summer. I never have but would love to be invited this year
Are you planing to move to DE? If so, what are you looking for.
I will have to say Kent county is a great place to live. We are in a rural setting only about 35 mins fromt he beach,
Anything else we can help you with just let us know.
Maybe one of our knowledgable regulars will jump in.

Hi Elizamary,
Thanks so much for your offer to help. Yes, we are thinking of moving to DE. I like that there is so much seashore, but I fear the cost of insurance if we were on the seacoast. So I'd like a home on a lake. But when I look at a map of DE, I don't see many lakes. Red Mill Pond is an interesting area. Do you know much about that?

HI...........Insurance in Sussex county may be a tad high but not in Kent county.
We live in Magnolia which is only 35 mins from the beach.
There are a ton of lakes or ponds around. I have seen them in my travels.
My neighbors tell me they try them all.
Ponds are all over Kent and Sussex county.
I can't think of the names of the ponds right now but I do know there are many.
There are so many little towns such as magnolia, Camden, Felton, Milford, star hill, Milford and so many others that are really small little wonders to live
My suggestion is to find a DE realtor to help you find your home on the lake.
WE have small ponds in my community where some homes are situated.

There are not many lakes. Actually there are none that I would consider lakes. There are lots of ponds. If you're looking for a place to do some family boating, other than canoing/kayaking, the ocean is the place to be. You'll find that most of the inland ponds are not big/deep enough to use a powerboat of any significant size and some prohibit any type of power boat. I've used an everglades air boat in some of the inland ponds. It's kind of like playing in the bath tub. I think you'll find that just about everyone who has a boat on a trailer in the driveway goes to the ocean. Depending on where in the state you are, either the ocean or the Chesapeake Bay are not far.

Insurance on the coast is not bad for some reason. DE must not be a natural disaster hot spot. Car insurance is very high but homeowners is quite reasonable, even when the house is 30 feet from the bay.

Our ponds are going to be stocked pretty soon. should be interesting to see the guys fishing.
I think they can fish but have to throw them back.

Car insurance is relative to the area from which you are relocating. My car insurance will be approximately 65% of what it currently is in New York.

There is also Silver Lake in Dover. We've visited Silver Lake park a few times in our trips and we like it. It is very well kept. I went to use one of the "Porta-potties" in December and it was obviously recently cleaned and restocked. That's always a good sign.

The walking paths are very nice as is the lake itself.
