Luxury Lakefront Vacation

Located on Haven Lake ~ Milford, Delaware


A Vacation to Cherish & Remember Forever

Our family shared a wonderful vacation at The Lake House of Tom and Rosemary Carroll. Their home is beautifully decorated and fully stocked with all the necessities needed for a family vacation. the view of Haven Lake is breathtaking from the deck, cabana and family room window. Our entire family enjoyed our days together on the lake in their new Canoe observing the abundant wildlife (duck, turles, fish and birds)paddling the long winding canals of Haven Lake. Our three year old niece loved the paddle boat and peddled her heart out! Nights were enjoyed gazing the millions of stars whilde soaking in the hot tub and watching the sunset. The meditation room and entertainment station were also an asset. This is the ideal vacation home to build long lasting memories with family and friends. Rosemary and Tom's kindness and hospitality surely made our vacation a pleasurable experience we will cherish and remember forever. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home.

The Best Place To Stay If You Want To Rejuvenate

I can't rave enough about how great this vacation home is. When I first saw the pictures of this lake house online it looked like something out of a luxury living magazine. Even with those images fresh in my mind, it still did not compare to seeing this house in person.

Upon arrival, I was immediately excited to meet the owners, who were very friendly and accommodating, and gave us a full tour of the house. There is more than enough room for people to sleep comfortably between the master bedroom, the private efficiency, and several other rooms with pull out beds.

The living room itself has the most spectacular view of the lake, where if you watch close enough, you will see geese coming up into the yard to take a break from swimming. Once outside you are met with ample green grass and shaded trees, a peaceful hammock, a hot tub, a full deck, an enclosed bamboo walkway, and so much more.

My most memorable moments were being out on the lake. I got to take out each boat, and was especially fond of the two kayaks they just got that weekend. They provided life jackets too for safety and showed us how to care for the boats and get them in/out of the water.

Another favorite of mine was their spacious kitchen, which was maybe the equivalent of two normal size kitchens combined. There was enough room for people to sit casually and make conversation while others prepared the meal.

The large flat screen TV in the living room made it very easy to have a group movie night. And if someone wanted to watch something different, there were several rooms equipped with flat screen televisions. There were also enough bathrooms to accommodate a large family/group of friends comfortably.

The backyard and deck were big enough for people to gather outside as a group or break up and do their own thing (lay in the hammock, sit in the gazebo or on the deck). The owners also provided us with a bike trails map and information about local events (they were very accommodating to our needs and interests).

Overall, I would highly recommend this home as a vacation home for people who want to enjoy being in close proximity to beaches, Dover Downs, shopping and other activities, but also prefer a peaceful, secluded place to rest their heads and relax. I would definitely rent this house again for another getaway vacation.

Beautiful lakefront property!

We wanted a vacation that was a fishing trip for my husband and son and a beach trip for me and my daughter. The Lake House satisfied both these goals perfectly. My husband and son went out on the lake every day on either a canoe or a paddleboat - which come with the property -- and caught a lot of fish, while my daughter and I drove to Rehoboth (only 25 minutes away) for beach, movies and shopping. The lakefront grounds are beautiful and the owners are friendly, lovely people. A wonderful family vacation.

Perfect Family Adventure

Dear Rosemary and Tom,

Thank you so much for sharing your lake house with my family. Our vacation was everything we hoped for and more. The property is absolutely beautiful - the inside is cozy, spacious, and clean; the outside is beautifully landscaped with spectacular lake views! Fishing, canoeing, paddle boating, swimming and much tranquility was exactly what we were looking for. Each day was a new adventure for my children (ages 8 and 10) as we saw Herons, it seemed hundreds of turtles, eagles, ducks, geese, clams, and many different types of fish. As soon as we threw our fishing pole out whether we were in a boat or on the dock we caught fish. It was a vacation we will not forget and hope to repeat!

Thank you!
Trish, Heath, Cameron and Connor

The Lake House is awesome. The owners are awesome. On the first day we arrived the fish were jumping. We could just stand on the dock and fish. The canoes provided allowed us to explore the beautiful lake and we felt like we were in the wilderness it was an amazing experience. The home was well equipped clean and roomy. Flat screen TV's were great for watching sports and there was a large movie collection too. Nothing to buy nothing to bring. Definite vacation we will remember.

Dear Rosemary and Tom,

What can I say, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!! The 2 of you are very special people. You made my boys and I feel very comfortable and very much at home. You opened your house and your hearts and we will always remember your kindness. Knowing I was a single parent, you both extended yourselves to help us if we needed, whether that b taking my boys out on the boat or taking us for breakfast. Because of who your are, you have been officially adopted into our family per my children and myself. My youngest son Adam was very fond of you Tom, and, I can see why. You are beautiful people who love life and love all that comes in your paths. How blessed are we to have met you both!

I arrived with my boys ages 10 and 16 to be followed by my girlfriend and her 2 girls ages 8 and 10 the next day. We all had so much fun and so much to do. Our children actually learned how 2 relax and enjoy the beauty of this lake house, how great is that!!

For your guests, Dover, Lewes and Wilmington have a lot to do. For those of you who like a night life, Dover Downs is great for gambling and race track. Wilmington, museums and Lewes, the most beautiful town, beaches and eateries. Crabbing is great to. All but 20 to 25 minutes away.

For those of you who have the pleasure of staying here, enjoy each day to its fullest and love the peace and serenity. Whether it be swimming in the lake, fishing, taking a boat ride, napping in the hammock, having a glass of wine in the gazebo, coffee on the deck, a swing, a splash in the hot tub, watching the stars at night, ENJOY, you can't get any better.

Much Love,

Dawn, Cameron and Adam - Sharon, Chrissy and Alexa
