About This Neighborhood


Relax and enjoy the perfect mix of comfort and luxury in an ideal location you can call home.

Bay Forest, comprising over 400 acres of forested woodlands and open meadows, is situated at the mouth of the Collins Creek Tributary in Ocean View, along the southern edge of the picturesque Indian River Bay. Just minutes from Bethany Beach, you can enjoy tax-free shopping in quaint local stores, dine at some of the area’s best restaurants, and play in the sun and sand.

Developed by award-winning Natelli Communities, Bay Forest offers luxurious resort homes set in a series of wooded neighborhoods, linked by extensive nature trails and walking paths. During the summer months, a beach shuttle provides transportation to downtown Bethany Beach. Bay Forest offers an incredible amenity package, including open water access and all of the fun that comes along with it:  Head out on your kayak from our community kayak launch, or spend the day on your stand up paddleboard!

 Meet up with neighbors at the state-of-the-art clubhouse or grille. If you’re feeling active, get a workout in at the fitness center. You can relax at 3 separate pools featuring everything from a poolside restaurant to cabanas to a lazy river. How about a game of bocce ball or horseshoes? Maybe pick up a game on the basketball tennis or volleyball courts? We also feature a putting green where you can practice your shot, a playground kids will love and a fire pit where evening gatherings are common. Just when you think the amenities can’t get any better… they do! The new second clubhouse is now open with elaborate fitness complex, recreation barn, outdoor lounge, pool and more!

For gardeners—both experienced and new—we feature an expansive community herb garden and potting center open to every resident of Bay Forest. The entire community is low-maintenance, meaning you’ll always have a gorgeous view as you stroll our extensive network of nature trails and walking paths.
