EASTERN SHORE WATERFRONT ESTATE, PRIVATE BEACH, DEEP WATER

Oxford Estate Rental Photos and Description

8 Bedrooms - 6.5 Baths

Martins Point is a late 18th Century house and cottages on Maryland's historic Eastern Shore. It is located on a secluded finger of land, surrounded by water on three sides, a place to unwind, immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Chesapeake Bay and reconnect with family and friends.

The house and cottages include 8 bedrooms and can accommodate 15+ guests. Furnishings reflect our family's taste: an appreciation of the farm's rural, colonial origins offset by a love of antiques and oriental rugs.

The pool and front lawn open on a favorite anchorage of Maryland sailors who frequently come and go during summer months. Great Blue Herons, bald eagles and ospreys drift by daily. Our dock can accommodate boats with up to 4 ft draft. The lagoon in front of the house, protected from weather on 4 sides will accommodate larger boats at anchor -- bottom is 12 feet.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair accessible
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

Martins Point has been in our family for four generations. My grandfather acquired the place from the original colonial settlers, the Martin family, who received a Kings Grant in the 1600's and many of whom were laid to rest in the family graveyard located in our sheep pasture. There is much evidence of the aboriginal occupants of the land as we have found many arrowheads and stone axes. The farm was on the Underground Railroad before the Civil War, and archeologists excavated a dugout log canoe (now in the Frederick Douglas museum in Baltimore) thought to be used to secret fugitives across the Choptank on the road to freedom.

Tom Dann purchased this estate in 1939

The Eastern Shore is a very special place, and when our grandfather bought it in the 1930s there was no bridge and the area was so isolated that the locals spoke a dialect almost like Elizabethan English. Martins Point is close to all of the attractions of the area but is uniquely isolated with no houses in sight and water all around, more like being on an island.

MAGICAL HISTORIC HOUSE ON THE EASTERN SHORE

  • 5 of 5
My family and friends have had the great good fortune to have stayed at this beautiful historic home twice now. It is the perfect place for a group to come together in a casual, laid back setting and enjoy the natural surrounding beauty. We took advantage of the beach, walking paths, water and day trips to neighboring small towns. But the best times we had were gathering for cocktails on the screened in porch overlooking the water or making big communal dinners that we then enjoyed in the dining room or bricked veranda. The house is not only filled with antiques but many personal photos and mementos belonging the the owner. We could the feel the deep roots around us - roots that go back 300 years or more. And it is those roots that made us feel deeply connected to our surroundings. Added to all of this was the attentive caretaker who saw to our every need. This is truly a unique home that we plan on coming back to again and again.

WONDERFUL EASTON SHORE FAMILY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at Martins Point with our children and grandchildren over many summers since discovering this unique waterfront homestead in the 1990s. Surrounded by water on three sides with a southwest exposure to the Choptank River, the property benefits from comfortable breezes during the summer, as well as well as outstanding views in all directions. The classic house with its upper and lower screen porches has all the amenities and comfort you need for a great family vacation. The pool and wonderful yard provide a center for family activities, and the location is ideal for boating, kayaking, sailing, fishing and other water activities. The cottages are great for grandchildren. There are opportunities to walk the entire property and beach with beautiful water views. This is one of the best locations for family members of all ages to experience the Easton Shore.

During fall and winter thousands of Canada geese and ducks winter in the coves and fields around the house. We've watched geese for many years but have never lost our love of watching them cup their wings as they come in to land.

The surrounding towns have a lot to offer. Easton, Oxford and St. Michael's are all within easy distance and sport restaurants, great antiquing and interesting shops. In St. Michael's, the Chesapeake Maritime Museum, only a few feet away from the Crab Claw, is always worth a visit. In the fall, the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge is a wonderful place to see a profusion of wildlife -- more geese and ducks than you can imagine. The trip there will also take you through one of the last undeveloped areas of the Eastern Shore.

Martins Point is located near Trappe, Maryland, less than two hour's drive from Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia. Drive time from Baltimore Washington International airport is 90 minutes.

Other Activities: boating, shelling, biking, shopping, kayaking, wildlife viewing, hunting
