CHESAPEAKE BAY WATERFRONT ESTATE CORPORATE/REUNIONS/WEDDINGS SLEEPS 35-40

Cambridge Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 13 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 8.5 Baths, (Sleeps 35)

Come to Ransome's Chesapeake Retreats 'RCR', a private, 250-acre, waterfront estate with one mile of shoreline on the magnificent Chesapeake Bay of Eastern Shore, Maryland. 'RCR' is the ideal setting for Family Reunions, Corporate Retreats, Club Events, or Weekend Getaways. Looking for a unique and 'extra'ordinary vacation location for your family this year? A place to relax in beautiful and peaceful surroundings, yet be 'close to it all'?

Our Chesapeake Bay estate is located just outside Cambridge, a quaint maritime town filled with history and tucked away on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Travel through the countryside James Michener wrote about in 'Chesapeake.' It is the perfect getaway for boating, fishing, golfing, shopping, sightseeing, or just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful Chesapeake Bay shoreline.

There are miles of walking paths and our boat dock/ramp offers direct access to the bay for water sports. Our facilities offer lots of places to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings - a screened-in porch overlooks both a bass pond and the Chesapeake. Our observation deck has a 360-degree view of the land and water. The master bedroom has it's own private deck.

Our multi-complex estate has a Family Room and a Great Room in the main house. There is also a 30' x 30' meeting/rec room in the Fun Center. Find all the amenities you will need to make memories that last a lifetime. We have thought of everything, so you don't have to.

Wildlife abounds; the surroundings are picturesque. You can go boating, crabbing and fishing on-site. The Blackwater Wildlife Refuge is our neighbor and offers more paths (for walking, hiking, and biking) and waterways (for canoe and kayaking). Boats, canoes, kayaks and bikes can be rented locally. There is a small grocery store 3 miles from our retreat.

Highly recomended

  • 5 of 5
I wrote the first review for this place, and discussed how it didn't meet my expectations. Well, the owner of the property contacted me immediately after seeing the review. They wanted to know details about my concerns and why I was not thrilled with the property. About 3 weeks after hearing my concerns, I was contacted with a property update. The owners went through the house and replaced all of the old linens and pillows with nice new ones. They also purchased extra for anyone who wants to use more. The cleaning staff has also been replaced and the owners expect the new company will do a much better job. Also the excessively high grass around the property was cut down, making it much easier to walk around and see the bay. I am really impressed with the responsiveness of the owners. They even sent me pictures of what's been done to improve the place. I would definately stay at this property again.

Not as good as expected

  • 2 of 5
The house itself was great- lots of room, beautiful pool, screened in porch, lots of beds and baths. However, the towels and wash cloths provided were old and scratchy. Each spot to sleep in had one paper thin pillow to use. From the deck there is a beautiful view of the bay, but due to the high grasses and trees, it can not be seen from anywhere else. There's an overgrown path leading to the bay, but due to the trees, grasses, and standing water, the bay was inaccessable. We ended up driving to Ocean City ( 1hr, 45min away) two of the days to play in the water.
The picture taken from the bridge makes it look like that's the bay. It is really a fishing pond- the bay is farther away. The house as lots of great ammenities, but old and not as clean as I would have liked. When we opened the blinds there was lots of dirt on the windowsills, the outdoor chairs were dirty, the shower in the cottage was a little grimy. We also found a tree frog on the outside of the fridge- but chances are we left it in with all the people going in and out. There were lots of birds, deer, and foxes to see, and the crabbing was good.
