Slaughter Creek Marina:
...is the name of my boat and boy did we find peace and serenity at this cottage. This was an ideal spot for my family of 4 for a quiet relaxing vacation with access to lots of adventure. Each day we saw herons, deer, bluebirds, bunny rabbits, ducks, geese and while on the creek saw ospreys and eagles as well. A short drive to Blackwater Refuge were picture perfect photo ops for egrets, herons, eagles and turtles. The surrounding towns of Cambridge, Easton and St. Michael's offered nice shopping, restaurants and ice cream parlors and we enjoyed an evening trip to the boardwalk at Ocean City. But mostly, we enjoyed the water access with crabbing from the dock or off our boat and fishing in the bay for bluefish and rockfish. Our boys also mastered the wakeboard in the river and we only saw one other boat on the creek whole time we were on vacation which made for a nice quiet time. The cottage was clean and well equipped and the owner was super nice. He greeted us on the second day after we settled in to provide a map of the area and point out some interesting historical sites which we enjoyed visiting. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a fairly private quiet getaway in a small cottage updated with modern conveniences. We've already booked our return for 2013! Joe (Newton, NJ)
We had a fantastic trip and stay in Cambridge. Bob is very easy to work with and helpful for any issues that may arise. We all enjoyed the peace and quiet and can't wait to get back for another trip!
The Cottage has been our vacation get-away for the last 3 years and we are planning to return again this year. Our children (one in college and one in high school) love it there. If you enjoy peace and quiet, like to fish and crab and like to have some elbow room to roam, this is the place for you! There are only about 8 houses on the cove and rarely did we even see a boat. You don’t need a boat to enjoy the water there is a nice pier and the area is great for canoeing. The cottage is located away from traffic which makes it perfect for running and biking. Cambridge is only 10 minutes away and easy to get to so if you forget anything it’s an easy trip to pick it up.
We loved this charming home - beautiful views from almost every window, and everything to help us settle in easily and relax was waiting for us. The dock lets you really experience the changing river, and we did see a blue heron flying low across the water on our 3rd day! The only unpleasant part was leaving.
Wow!!! If you're looking for a clean, comfortable, relaxing vacation cottage, look no further! This was one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever had! We spent each morning on the wrap-around porch with our coffee watching the sun come up over the water. The only sounds were the fish jumping and the birds singing. We wanted to try our hand at crabbing and were not disappointed! Bob and Joan not only provided everything you could need in the cottage but also had everything needed for crabbing. Even the bait! If you're looking for a fun daytrip, the Boardwalk at Ocean City was an easy, short drive. The beach there was so clean and beautiful! Although, one day away from this "piece of Heaven" was enough for us. So.. grab your fishing gear, a good book, and great company and head to this beautifully kept property! You won't be disappointed! Thank you Bob and Joan for sharing this property with us! We will definitely be back!
If our family had a getaway house, we'd want it to be like the Cottage at Heron's Cove. It was comfortable, well organized, and nicely outfitted and decorated without being stuffy or spare. Everything was very clean and well kept. From the comfortable bedrooms, well-stocked kitchen, and movies and games inside to the fire pit, hot tub, and large, level waterfront lawn to play on outside, we were all happy with our early spring getaway. The view is lovely, and the location quiet. We brought our bikes, and had a few nice rides on calm, flat roads. Bob was accessible and helpful, showing real hospitality from afar. It was a perfect getaway for our family!
The Cottage at Heron Cove is the perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy the beauty of the region. The Cottage is comfortable, clean, well-maintained, peaceful, and has everything that you could possibly need. The views from each and every window are incredible (like an artist's painting) - words cannot describe the beauty of the surroundings when actually stepping outside! Bob and Joan are very helpful, and clearly take great care of this gem. Like other guests have written in their comments, we absolutely did not want to leave...and promise we will be back!
