St. Michaels House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms (4 with den), 3 baths (one is 1/2), sleeps 8

Cranford on the Miles is a waterfront home located on 3+ acres, in St. Michaels. Fully renovated, with Wi-Fi, there is a Master Bedroom with king bed, sitting room, and private balcony; Second Bedroom with a double bed; Third Bedroom with both a double and twin bed; and a Den with a trundle bed with 2 twins beds and a second balcony. Downstairs there is a queen sofa bed. Every room has a view of the water.

The private dock has electricity and water, from which you can watch wildlife, fish or crab (we usually catch a dozen crabs a day). Roast marshmallows over the fire pit, or cook your fish on the grill. Bring your boat and launch from the public boat ramp within walking distance.

Or just relax on either the screened porch with ceiling fans, cushioned sofa and chairs, or the front porch rocking chairs. Indoors, every bedroom has a satellite TV, two DVD players, games, books, and music CDs for all ages. The second family room has a fireplace.

Get away and relax at Cranford on the Miles, a piece of true Eastern shore elegance dating back to 1840. Tucked away on over 3.5 park-like acres, you’ll be enchanted by gorgeous broad water views. Sip coffee, have breakfast or evening drinks on your wrap-around screened waterside porch. Crab off the dock or take a family bike ride into the charming town of St. Michaels. Later, gather in the gourmet kitchen to prepare a dinner of the fish and crab you caught on your private dock. In the evening, open the sliders off the bedrooms and watch the stars, swans and beautiful sunsets from the two decks.

Enjoy your vacation in comfort. Linens and towels are provided free. We are dog friendly. Yes, we have central air conditioning, a fireplace and both a grill and fire pit. Yes, there is a dock with both electricity and water.

Guestbook comments from the owner
It's been a very fun and relaxing holiday here and we've really, really enjoyed it. Your home is so well stocked and cozy and in such a beautiful spot. So quiet and peaceful! I will miss my tea on the dock or the porch every morning! We loved our time at your home.

JUST WHAT WE WERE HOPING FOR - AND NEEDED!

  • 5 of 5
This is such a lovely home - it has aged so gracefully and yet retains all of the charm that you rarely see in houses today. My husband and I (and our two rambunctious young dogs) couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

The house is comfortable and beautiful - the kitchen is a dream (extremely well-equipped) and the Master suite even better; I loved waking up and walking right out onto the deck overlooking the river. The listing is not only accurate, I felt it didn't quite do the place justice! The one bedroom not pictured is just gorgeous. We felt like we had a fancy B&B for our private use. The linens provided were great - towels were plentiful and high quality.
The home is spacious and the site is private - yet everything you could want (supermarket, convenience store, museums, restaurants) is so close and the drive to them couldn’t be easier. St. Michaels is charming and a lot of fun to walk through – very dog friendly, too. If you bring your pups make sure you take them to Flying Fred’s pet shop for treats and petting. You can even eat on Ava's Pizzeria & Wine Bar patio with them and they have a dog’s menu. We had our Anniversary dinner at 208 Talbot and it was everything TripAdvisor had promised.
Lisa (the owner) was very easy to communicate with and very hospitable – she even left dishes and leashes for the dogs! We got our security deposit refunded promptly – which has not always been our experience.
When we come back to St. Michaels – and we will – we wouldn’t consider staying anywhere but Cranford.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This was our second family stay. Our family feels this is our home away from home. The home has such character and a wonderful water view from all over the house. The openess of the family room and kitchen kept us all together no matter if we were resting or eating or cooking. At the same time, there are plenty of quiet spots that we could read or just have time to ourselves. Lisa has been so kind and accommodating even when we showed up a day early thinking we were on the right day. We were just so excited to get there! After our week there we truly have precious family memories.

WONDERFUL GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
Cranford on the Miles is a wonderful home overlooking the Miles River with spectacular views from every room in the home. It is a close drive from metro DC and is always a wonderful, relaxing get-away. I try to go every year because I so enjoy it. One of my favorite things to do is to walk out the front door and head down to the dock where at the end is a wonderful bench. From this location, I am consumed with the beautiful view of the river in almost all directions and the wonderful shoreline birds flying around. Depending on the day, there may be sailboats, kayaks or other water vehicles cruising around and maybe a jumping fish or crab swimming by. If you are lucky you may be able to catch one. There is also a small beach area by which to access the water.
The beautiful, serene and quiet environment is coupled with a wonderful air-conditioned historic home equipped with all of today’s conveniences including those electronic needs we seem to not be able to live without. The home has a beautiful screened porch that includes a dining table and chairs along with sofa and comfy chairs on which to sit back and read a book or take an intended or unintended snooze. The owner has clearly thought of your every need in equipping the kitchen whether preparing a snack or a wonderful full course gourmet dinner with friends. In addition, the beds are incredibly comfortable and the owner provides a full cadre of nice sheets and towels for your use so you only need to pack your personal clothes and items. There is also a washer and dryer available.
The home, as you can see from the pictures, is well maintained and has lots of wonderful places to relax and/or get together with family and friends. The home is decorated as you would decorate your own home and has an Eastern Shore motif – try counting the number of items with crabs on them.
I’ve enjoyed the home as either a family or friends get-away. It has been perfect for both. It is a quick jaunt into historic downtown St. Michael’s to enjoy shopping, exploring and fun restaurants on the water. Groceries and other needs are only minutes away. In addition to St. Michael’s, there are lots of other towns and places to tour and visit that are a quick drive away and if you need to shop the outlets they are on the way coming or going.
The owner clearly wants you to have a wonderful time while you are at Cranford on the Miles and is very accommodating.

PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment I saw Cranford and the beautiful view from its dock, I thought this is my definition of paradise. I am a history buff and Cranford’s architecture and interior transports you to the early 19th century. Lisa has thoughtfully decorated this extraordinary house with wonderful nautical and historic themes that evoke the early Eastern Shore. We enjoyed the beautiful views and breezes of the Miles River – and even saw a school of Eastern Shore rays! Best moments were sitting on the porch and eating some of the sweetest crabs I’ve tasted in years! What an amazing experience!

TOTALLY AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
This was my second stay at the wonderful Cranford. It is truly a great destination. The property is gorgeous and the house is decorated and maintained with great taste and attention to detail. And the waterfront view is out of this world! There is nothing like sitting on the screen porch, the balcony, or the dock and looking at the beautiful Miles River. During our stay, there was one rainy morning, but the location allowed us to explore nearby St. Michaels and Easton, which are really interesting towns. This home is a great place for either relaxation or activity and I hope to visit again.

EASTERN SHORE CHARM WITH ALL OF THE AMENITIES!

  • 5 of 5
This is my third trip for a relaxing long girls' weekend in what can only be described as a slice of heaven on the Eastern Shore. Cranford on Miles is a wonderful, stately home that has managed to retain the warmth and charm of an historic property while providing all of the modern amenities I love...updated bathrooms and a kitchen to die for. The owner, Lisa, has thought of everything and then some and is always so helpful with ensuring that her guests are comfortable and happy. She genuinely cares about her guests and it shows.

The property never ceases to amaze me. Every room is absolutely lovely. I could live in the master bedroom with its private deck overlooking the river, though all the rooms are well outfitted and comfortable. And I love that the sunlight pours through every bedroom window in the mornings (though if you draw the shades, you can sleep to your heart's content). Another deck off of the loft affords a similar view overlooking the river and rear lawn and provides a private oasis to get away for a while or a wonderful place to sip cocktails with the girls.

Should one wish to venture into town, St. Michael's is a quick 10 minute drive away and is sure to please with its many local shops and some terrific eateries. Graul's, the local market, is a mere five minutes from the house and is well stocked with everything you could possible want or need.

I could go on and on, but one should really experience this lovely home to understand why it is so popular that it has as many repeat visitors as first timers..
