My husband and I and our two adult children and their friends stayed here for a quiet and relaxing weekend. It was a wonderful escape frm the city....clear skies and sweet air. A beautiful sunrise and plenty of water to view it from with the availability of a canoe.

The Beauty of the Chesapeake in Winter

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
We just spent 3 months at this house and really enjoyed it. We are travel writers and were looking for a quiet place to spend the winter months to work on our writing. Chesapeake Country House was perfect for our needs. The house is definitely on the funky/quirky side (it's a 100 year old house that has had a few additions over the years, so the floor plan isn't "cookie cutter subdivision"), but everything worked.

The location was terrific. The area is remote and very pretty. Not a lot of car traffic so very quiet. I loved taking walks along the creek and in the nearby neighborhood toward the bay. We saw plenty of wildlife-herds of deer (more than 20!), wild turkeys, foxes, blue heron and even bald eagles soaring above.

Jackie, the property manager/housekeeper was very conscientious. The house was clean and ready for us upon arrival, and Jackie stopped by frequently to make sure we had everything we needed.

Great biking! Great house!

I am an avid biker and the roads around this home are spectacular. The house itself is charming and clean with plenty of room for the five if us who shared it. The front porch at cocktail time was a truly glorious end of each day. The owner is helpful with her local knowledge of activities and restaurants. Across from the house was Hudson creek where we used their canoe to drift along the shoreline. It was a relaxing and idyllic weekend. Thank you Barbara!! Our dog Barney loved it too!

Our stay at Chesapeake Country House couldn't have been nicer! The house is interesting and very clean and we felt welcomed (thanks for the wine!) We had a beautiful bike ride and the creek is so gorgeous - we will be back. Thank you!!! -- Frank and Molly

Bad Experience

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 16, 2010
  • Stayed: Jul 2010
This was the worst rental, I have ever been to. The house shows all signs that it is 100 years old. Upon entry was greeted by a stink and found the garbage including discarded food in the kitchen trash can, there was a pile of dirty clothes on the drier and all the bed linens shabby. The master bedroom, guest bedroom and the kid bedroom share a common bathroom and there was a half inch hole in the door between the master bedroom and the bathroom. The kitchen had uneaten snacks by earlier visitors and the whole place was a complete mess. Called up the owner and said we are leaving and need a refund. The owner agreed will refund, but later sent a mail saying the cancellation policy is a 10 day notice so cannot refund. The owner feels returning of the damage deposity and cleaning charages for the unoccupied rental, itself over and above the agreement. All in all a nightmare of an experience and will not recommend this place even to my worst enemy.
Owner's Response: There was a problem with my housekeeper who did not show up in time and I addressed the problem immediately by having another housekeeper come right away and clean the house. I offered these people free rent for that evening and a free meal out while the house was cleaned plus a refund on the cleaning fee. Instead they chose to leave the area and then try to get out of the contract, expecting a full refund, which was not what our contract stipulates, unfortunately. These people were not reasonable and made no effort to work out a solution. I did refund their security deposit and the cleaning fee but the house was left empty on a holiday weekend. Not all guests behave nicely, nor does every housekeeper! This is part of running a business and I do my best to ensure a pleasant stay. By the way, now I have a wonderful and reliable housekeeper, Jackie, who lives 2 houses away.
