“Small lake just a few hundred feet from the Atlantic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

There's a small, very slow road that runs beside Coastal Highway for awhile. Look to the east and you will see a lake that's home to geese and ducks and high-priced "cottages". It's lovely. This is not a spot for anyone who is in fast-paced mode. It's for bicycles, runners, people on a walk with children or dogs or just for the peace of it. Even drivers have to slow down to 25 mph and breathe in the calm. When dusk arrives, you see how the lake got its name. The gently rippled water begins to gleam like liquid silver. Most of the shore is privately owned, so it's not a place you can camp out for the day. But you may linger a bit, take pictures, sneak down to the water's edge and toss in some bread for the lake's inhabitants. It is truly lovely and a nice break from the noise and business of the local, highly popular beaches.

“No public seating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

I rented a bike to ride to Silver Lake. There is a public road, but no place to just sit and relax to enjoy the lake. The homes are nice. It was a little hilly and/or I was out of shape. It's can be very humid.

“One of the most beautiful places in Rehoboth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Take a right off the south end of the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach if you want to enjoy a scenic and peaceful spot away from the crowds. You'll also enjoy seeing many types of waterfowl and red earred slider turtles.

“See the Silver in the Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

This is such a lovely spot to bicycle to. We enjoy the bird life. We like walking and riding on the road by the lake. There is always a beautiful reflection on the water.
