Cleverly UD.

Planning on Shopping at the Beach Outlets?


Since you’re down here, why not enjoy the beach off-season with a weekend getaway? The Virden Center encourages our UD Community to take advantage of off-season pricing while you check off you’re holiday to-do list!

Give yourself a break this holiday season.


The Virden Center is open year-round and a perfect way for our UD Community to treat themselves during the holiday season. Take a weekend to hit the outlets, enjoy Lewes in all its holiday splendor, or celebrate the New Year with nature – beachcombing can be great this time of year.

Choose from three guestroom configurations, all with private baths and porches. In the evenings, warm up by the fire pit and enjoy the serenity of the surrounding wetlands.
