Kick back, enjoy the view and just relax!
From our first contact with the owner until we drove away after 5 great days, we couldn't have asked for more. Very communicative, helpful owner. House is spacious, very well laid out, very clean and with a sweet welcoming note, and very pretty grounds. Three comfortable and well-decorated bedrooms, one with its own view out to the water (the photos online are spot on!). Open plan is very nice, and well-equipped kitchen. Handy to have laundry facilities. The above-ground pool is great for cooling off and works well for water aerobics and just plain lounging. For our group, it was SO nice to have the dock at the bottom of our own back yard so that those who wanted to fish or crab could do so, but then come in for a break, a bite to eat, a drink. That made it very easy to accommodate everyone. We arrived just before sunset and as soon as we opened the door to the fantastic view onto the creek leading to the Choptank River, we knew our 5 days would be spent largely right there! That said, we did visit the Blackwater Wilflife Refuge and saw some amazing herons, and other birds. Peaceful setting. We also recommend the University of Marryland's tour of their Horn Point Laboratory looking at various issues related to the Chesapeake Bay. As far as food and entertainment go, we enjoyed Premier Cinema on Route 50, next to the Walmart Super Center, and the wonderful food (crab cakes, ahi tuna, great cream of crab soup, good wine list and extensive beer list) at Jimmie and Sook's restaurant in downtown Cambridge (try the super ice cream store next door, too). After the Blackwater Refuge, we drove on down to Hoopers Island and ate lunch at Old Salty's - wonderful crab cakes. But the best was watching the sunsets at the cute house. So quiet there -- just what you need to unwind!
