Overview

St. Michaels House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

'MisBayhaven' is located on 4 pristine waterfront acres 2 miles from the center of St. Michaels, Maryland. Situated on a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay (the largest inland body of water in the United States). The property offers beautiful views, a relaxing park-like atmosphere in a truly natural environment.

'MisBayhaven' is a spacious 5000 square foot (including the screened-in porch) country cape cod situated on the east bank of the Harris Creek (1/2 mile wide) making for easy water access and beautiful sunsets. It has central air-conditioning, two master bedroom suites with king size beds, 4 full bathrooms and three additional large bedrooms. Living is centered around the spectacular 500 sq. ft. screened-in porch with mahogany wood floors and ceilings with gorgeous views to the water.

'MisBayhaven' also offers a family room with fireplace, a large kitchen and a t.v/game room. Amenities include a pool, hot tub, dock, outdoor tree swing, hammock, ping pong table and two laundry facilities for convenience. The house has just completed a full renovation including a new pool, landscaping and hardwood floors.

Activities include fishing and crabbing directly from the dock, countryside biking, tubing, boating, ping pong, badmitton, relaxation by the pool or in the hot tub, reading under the trees or swinging in our tree suspended hammock or swing. Evening activities including star gazing and sunset watching are memorable as a clear night will reveal the Milky Way Galaxy directly above.

Due to its temperate climate, the Eastern Shore enjoys a long outdoor season from March through November. The summer is most popular for its celebration of crab feasts and Plein-Air art festivals. The fall is famous for the massive influx of migratory waterfowl and associated festivals. Situated in a quaint historical locale and steeped in Eastern Shore culture, St. Michaels offers a beautiful contrast to cities such as Washington and Baltimore both of which make for a great day trip.

St. Michaels was voted one of the top 10 'Most Romantic Get-Aways' by Coastal Living Magazine.

Listed as one of the '1000 Places to See Before You Die' (Patricia Schultz)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Debbie, we loved your beautiful home! I'm not sure if I told you, but we have been renting vacation homes for a very long time. I guess you'd say we are professional renters by this time in our lives! You wouldn't believe how often a rental for 10 or 12 people has seating for 8! And kitchen equipment...we even carry our own box of certain things. You can tell you use your home and love it. And know what families need while enjoying your home. The kitchen is so well equipped, and day to day supplies are so much appreciated. As I said, we never know what to expect, so we come prepared. Of course the setting is amazing, and though it was hot ( not as bad as last year when we were in Annapolis - 106!), we were able to utilize the screened porch, which we love. We were a bit concerned about the fridge. It was broken, not cooling, but shelving, and we were careful about further breakage. And the 2 metal stools at the island are a bit precarious. We put them aside. I always say to our gang, " not on our watch". But these things are minor, just wanted you to be aware. The bedrooms are fabulous, and so much space to be together and hang out, which is our primary purpose. And your suggestions for dining out were super. We hit Ava's, the Big Pickle, Harbor Lights, the schooner ( I think that's it ), and the kids did Gina's Cantina. All great!!! Thank you very much for providing our family with a perfect summer setting. Of course, I imagine it's perfect whatever the season!

What a sensational property!

  • 5 of 5
This home had everything we needed to hold our family Thanksgiving reunion, and, I mean everything. From comfortable bedrooms, social living space and wonderful dining and kitchen space to all of the accoutrements needed to prepare a Thanksgiving feast.
The owner is meticulous with the intricacies of managing a vacation rental home, from rental engagement through post occupancy. She was accessible and proactive and made sure the home would fit our specific needs.
AND the view is sensational from multiple rooms. A truly peaceful and inspiring setting.
My family looks forward to retuning in the future.

Jewel of St. Michael's. A wonderful home!!!

Jewel of St. Michael's. A wonderful home!!!
  • 5 of 5
After hours of searching on VBRO/HomeAway and visiting several rental homes in St. Michael’s and the surrounding area we came upon a jewel. That jewel was Misbayhaven!!! We spent a week there in August 2014 with our extended family which consisted of 5 adults and 4 children ages 7 to 9. The owner Debbie was so accommodating, personable and was truly a pleasure to work with. So much better than working directly with a rental company.
The home was beautifully decorated; the kitchen was spacious and had everything we could possibly need. There was enough space for the entire family to spread out (large TV room and plenty of games and videos for the kids). The bedrooms had beautiful views of the water and mattresses were very comfortable. We took the linen package and that made packing much easier. The screened in porch was so spacious and it kept the bugs away. We enjoyed eating our meals out there while we enjoyed the spectacular view of the water. Sunsets were so beautiful.
The house was exceptionally clean and we were excited that pets were not allowed because several people in our family are very allergic to dogs. It is a low allergen home!!!
Our kids were never bored. They swam in the pool (plenty of pool toys) for hours and the hot tub was a bonus for all. They were so tired that they asked to get to bed early at night. We enjoyed docking our sailboat and crabbing and fishing off the dock. We also enjoyed some pretty fierce ping pong matches in the garage as well. The kids enjoyed the large selection of bikes to ride.
So many homes in Cambridge and Oxford that we looked at were so remote and far away from dining or shopping. It is less than a 10 minute ride into St. Michael’s for dinner or an ice cream cone from Misbayhaven. That is a real bonus when you have hungry kids.
Misbayhaven was the perfect vacation for our family!! I would highly recommend this home. You will not be disappointed!!!!! You will not want your vacation to end!!

Best vacation spot on the Eastern Shore

  • 5 of 5
This was our 5th year spending our summer family vacation on the Eastern Shore. Misbayhaven is by far the best home we have rented to date. The house is very clean and the layout is perfect. The selling feature of this house is the porch. We lived in the porch - rain or shine! The family never even sat in the living room or family room. We had 2 chefs with us and they both loved the well-stocked kitchen and all the cooking equipment. The master bedroom on the first floor was perfect for our elderly mother. Debbie, the homeowner, is great to work with and very responsive to our emails and requests. We hope to return in 2015!

FANTASTIC! Hard to leave this beautiful oasis!

  • 5 of 5
Misbayhaven was the perfect house for our getaway with another couple even though it can accommodate large groups. Loved the beautiful decor of the house and the view was picture perfect as well as the sunsets. We had a fun evening watching a massive thunderstorm from the comfortably appointed sunroom after cooking a great meal in the well designed kitchen offering us cooks limitless tools of the trade!!! The bedrooms had wonderful linens and very comfortable. The pool and hot tub were super clean and perfect for hot summer days! Deb was a godsend and was great in responding and following up to make sure our trip was wonderful. Easy car ride to town and great restaurants - loved 208 Talbot, Gina's for margaritas and lunch, and the Crab Claw for the best Maryland Crab soup! A home run! We look forward to returning!!!

Best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
Our group (5 adults, 4 grandchildren) spent a wonderful week in this beautiful home, savoring each day to the max. Evenings, with routinely spectacular sunsets, were a special treat. The home has many beautiful rooms, each with a nice view. The spacious screened porch provided such a breezy, comfortable dining venue that we never got around to eating out; opting instead to grill outdoors or prepare meals in the fully-provisioned kitchen. "Misbayhaven" is our new favorite getaway spot and we'll definitely be returning.

Wow, wow, wow, this is a very impressive home. Where to begin...everything is very nicely decorated, loads of room for people to spread out, everything was SPOTLESS, and it was very well equipped for cooking and relaxing! The outdoor area was impressive. The screened in deck was huge and beautiful, the porch, hot tub, pool, and being able to watch the sunset was priceless! Loved being right on the water.
We took full advantage of the close proximity to town to shop, eat, and walk down by the museum. The owner is incredibly responsive, helpful and an overall pleasure to rent from. We can't wait to come back!!
