Why Virginia Rubsam chose Cambridge

We bought this house because of its PERFECT location. It is only 60 miles from Annapolis so getting there is easy, going from the hustle of city life to perfect peace in an hour's drive. It started out as a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house that we enlarged and improved to fit the needs of our own large extended family. Then we decided to offer it to other large families for their vacations so they can enjoy it too!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from Fishing Cove. My husband and I had a wonderful week with our children, their spouces and our grandchildren who ranged in age from 2 1/2 months to 14 years old. We swam in the pool, used the rowboats, went fishing and, of course, caught and cooked the crabs. Everyone enjoyed themselves in this fantastic house in this very private community.

Large family vacation

  • 5 of 5
My extended family had a wonderful time at this lovely home. The house was large and accommodated our family perfectly. The pool and the dock were so much fun. We has a few small issues and the owner responded immediately. We also rented a motor boat and 2 kayaks from Blackwaters Rentals. They were wonderful to deal with. Thank you Ginger for a wonderful time!

Our large, 4 generation family had a wonderful time at Fishing Cove, for our annual Christmas reunion! This house was comfortable, incredible well equipped, roomy enough to have some privacy, and just really homey and nice. We loved it and hope to return next year. Virginia was very nice to work with and made the process easy. Thanks for a 5 star experience!

A Great Place for a Large Family Reunion!!!

  • 5 of 5
Each year our family spends a week together at a different vacation venue. There are twenty-one family members ranging in age from 7 months to 72 years… three generations (including nine teenagers). Fishing Cove proved to be a perfect spot this year. The time spent at the house and the time spent visiting the nearby attractions made for a great reunion that was enjoyed by all. When we arrived everything was in order and during our stay there were no problems with any of the facilities provided. Fishing Cove is a great place for a family reunion… we all highly recommends it!!!

A beautiful and ultra-relaxing vacation house -- great for family reunions

  • 5 of 5
Our large extended family (18 cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents) has now twice vacationed for a week each time at Fishing Cove -- in 2005 and again in 2010. We had a wonderful experience both times, although 2010 was even better because the owner opened up an additional bedroom and bathroom, so it was even more spacious and comfortable.

For those looking for a lot of outside stimulation and activities, the Cambridge area may not be for you. But if you're looking for peace, quiet and relaxation as we were, it's ideal. We did go into Cambridge to watch the Fourth of July fireworks show, which was absolutely amazing and very long. And there seem to be a lot of options for chartering boats, going fishing, etc. plus there is a fair amount of historical interest in the area, much of it centered on Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad and other civil war history. But we preferred to stay around the house, which is quite comfortable, and plenty to do right there. Swimming pool in the backyard is quite large and well-maintained. The backyard abuts onto a creek called Fishing Creek, which in turn feeds into the Little Choptank River. The house comes with two rowboats at the dock. We also rented a kayak and a canoe from Blackwater Paddle and Pedal, a local place that rents boats and also does guided water tours, including of the nearby Blackwater Nature Preserve. For those who love birding, it's an amazing place. We saw Bald Eagles there, as well as ospreys and lots of other interesting birds. There are also plenty of birds right on Fishing Creek at the house, so you don't even need to drive anywhere to do birdwatching (we saw Great Blue Herons and ospreys every single day).

I should add that my parents are in their 80's, and one of the great things about this house is that it is very accessible and easy to navigate for older folks who have limited mobility (there's even a lift for wheelchairs at the front door, though we didn't need to use that). And the backyard and dock are very easy to get around, so they were able to walk out to the dock each morning and evening to watch the sunset or the birds, or just gaze at the scenery.

The owner is exceptionally responsive and helpful, and keeps the property inside and out in immaculate condition. We asked her in advance about wireless internet, which the house does have, but she took the initiative to get it upgraded to increase connection speed.

We will come back to Fishing Cove!

Map

Map

Car: necessary

The Cambridge area is the heart of the Chesapeake Bay area and is a convenient drive from New York, Philadelphia, Ohio and Florida. Families gather from these and other areas to enjoy everything the Bay has to offer - the wildlife, the ocean and all the historical sites. There are also great restaurants, festivals, 2 world-class waterfront golf courses, tennis and boating of all types. Fishing, Crabbing and boating couldn't be better. Just tie up at our dock and take advantage of it all.

Other Activities: Blackwater Wildlife Refuge

Golf: The River Marsh Golf Club at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort provides golfers a secluded haven to enjoy golf as it's meant to be played -- with classic styling, wide fairways, sculpted bunkers, generous greens and tees to reward and challenge all levels of players. The 17th hole is a par 3 that stretches 200 yards from the tips. Awaiting the bold player is a dramatic carry over Shoal Creek to a large putting surface guarded by three artfully crafted bunkers. The green is backdropped by majestic trees and a stunning vista of the broad Choptank River that flows into Chesapeake Bay.

Clearview at Horn Point's Golf Course is challenging and fun for any level player. You'll enjoy remarkable views of the beautiful Choptank River from several holes on the course. This par 72/73 course plays to just over 6,450 yards from the back tees. With ponds, traps, tree-lined fairways, and firm fast greens, solid ball striking and course management is a must.
