Lounge in the evenings in the Adirondack chairs on the front porch of Blue Heron Cottage and enjoy the water views or stroll the small village's main street. Only 10 minutes from St. Michaels, Neavitt is a quiet and safe waterfront community of friendly people - families that have been on the Eastern Shore for generations and make their living from the Chesapeake Bay, as well as families and retirees from western MD, DC, PA, and NJ. Blue Heron Cottage is a charming, remodeled country cottage with lots of windows, light, and open space layout, and is only a 1.5 hour drive on picturesque country roads to the beaches of Ocean City MD, Bethany and Rehobeth Beaches DE, and Assateague, MD.
Open the front door and you enter a sunny living room/dining room with pine floors and an airtight wood stove. Continue to the back through the fully equipped kitchen that overlooks the sunroom which faces the back yard, woods and farm field. Off the kitchen is the downstairs bedroom with 2 bunk beds (lower: full and upper: twin) and its own full bath with washer/dryer.
From the living room, a stairway leads to the second floor where there is a lovely water view space to the left, a large full bath straight ahead, and to the right the carpeted master bedroom with queen bed, high ceilings, and lovely views of the back yard and field.
Just next door from the cottage is a shared fenced yard with large pool (pool open Memorial Day-Labor Day) and patio, and a vegetable garden, lovely grassy lawn, flowers, trees, all accessible to you during your stay.
Broad Creek, the river that borders Neavitt, is the former home of the Audubon Nature Preserve where the best of Eastern Shore nature is still preserved. Bring your boat and launch at the Neavitt boat ramp just down the street and fish for delicious striped bass. If you don't catch anything, you can always pick up some soft-shell crabs from the co-op down the street. Kayak with a pair of binoculars and spot a blue heron or osprey. Broad Creek merges into the Choptank River where you can cruise your boat up to St. Michaels for a visit to the fabulous shops and Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, visit quaint and historic Oxford, or have a sunset waterfront dinner on Tilghman Island.
Please come and enjoy our world!
I am a university science communicator doing ecological work worldwide. My husband is a master yacht captain and building contractor. We both love to travel, explore, and sail.
In the past, Neavitt was a community of families who made their livelihood working the Chesapeake Bay, catching crabs and oysters. But, now it's a mix of friendly folks from all walks of life, who still take the time to stop and say good morning and kids run around carefree. It is this quiet charm and the abundant nature of woods, water, and wildlife that we love and why we make our home here. And when you come stay at our guest house 'Blue Heron Cottage', you will see what we mean.
Peace, quiet, friendly neighbors, and nature.
