About Us

What you love about home. What you love about vacation.
Finally together.
Ideal Location
Located in the southerly portion of Delaware, The Refuge is a community of customized single-family homes and townhomes. The community is predominantly comprised of full-time residents of all ages. Neighborhood amenities include meeting room, card room, pavilion, and playground. Activities abound with a fitness center, pool, and adjacent children's pool. Tennis and basketball courts join hands with resort favorites – volleyball and shuffleboard courts, and of course, there is the lure of the water. The Refuge is a very friendly, socially active, and an environmentally conscious community.
The Refuge Homeowners' Association is a non-profit organization whose members share only the common bonds that they own homes in The Refuge community and desire to maintain and improve the community in which they've chosen to live.
The Community Club House
The Club House is the center of the community and provides entrance to the pools, children’s playground, fully equipped fitness center and community card room.  
The entire amenity center is powered by the energy produced from the Refuge’s 35 kW photovoltaic system, Refuge Solar 1.  The system encompasses two roof mounts and a solar carport – the first in Delaware.  Not only is this system containing electric consumption costs, it is also generating an additional income stream for the community to the benefit of all residents and future residents.
This project underscores The Refuge Community’s interests in environmental sustainability and fiscal prudence.  To see more photographs of the evolving system, CLICK HERE.
