Owner could not be happier as the property manager of Harbor Hideaway! She loves meeting people which this job is a perfect fit for. She has traveled extensively, living for two years in Japan while teaching abroad and three in Italy. Though education was her calling for many years, she has pursued her other artistic callings with each move. She worked in design in her years in NC and with the move to MD, she wanted to follow her heart into the hospitality industry. Taking note of all the things that she enjoyed as she traveled and then incorporating them into her own summer rental has been very rewarding to her, and hopefully to the enjoyment of her guests. Her ultimate goal is to try to give her guests a great getaway that is made easy by the things that she provides. (when she first bought this place, the management company made the guests pay extra for bedding and to have the beds already made up upon your arrival...who wants to do on your getaway?) Since she took over, she put in great mattresses with quality linens that are pressed and on the bed.That type of comfort and pampering brings many repeat guests year after year. Just as important to her as your comfort is the cleaniness of the cottage. When a property is not just a rental but the second home for the owner, which Harbor Hideaway is, you can be assured that you will always get the best of everything. She wants you to enjoy what she enjoys about it, the location, the comfort and the cleanliness, all things that are hugely important in choosing a place to stay.

Carol Rum purchased this cottage in 2006

The town of Saint Michael's has been one of my very favorite getaways from my very first vist back in the 90's. It felt like I was stepping back in time, safe and friendly. I love riding the bikes or walking around town, restaurants are great, shopping is fun, I feel like I'm back in my little hometown!

Our promise to our guests is that you will always find Harbor Hideaway to be extremely clean and fresh and comfortable. Our guests mention this fact over and over again in their reviews and as an owner I know that is over the top important to me when I look to stay somewhere.

Our guests also love our location, so close to town and also close to the water. When they aren't out exploring the town or their surroundings, they find it in enchanting to sit and relax in the rocking chairs on the front porch. Other visitors enjoying Saint Michael's pass by and their is always sweet banter going between guests about their stays. It just a lovely town and lovely neighborhood that we are fortunate enough to own and share a cottage in. I think you'll love it!

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The Harbor Hideaway was the perfect getaway retreat. It truly felt like home away from home. Carol, the homeowner, really thought of everything from a well-stocked kitchen and comfortable bedding to toiletries and even Band-Aids! We did s'mores out by the fire pit, played corn hole, and rode the four bikes to Inn at Perry Cabin and had a cocktail while sitting in the Adirondack chairs looking out onto the marina. St. Michaels is the perfect long weekend destination and the Harbor Hideaway is within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants.

Memorial Day Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Harbor Hideaway is a perfect little cottage for a relaxing getaway. It has everything advertised, plus. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with everything a cook might need. The location is perfect, on a quiet little street with easy access to the harbor and to main street shopping. Brunch at The Bistro was yummy and Alma's serves great pizza, sandwiches, salads and drinks. Along with comfy beds and lovely linens, the decor is charming. This is a vacation home that delivers everything it advertises and creates a sense of relaxation the minute one walk through the front door.

Secret Gem

  • 5 of 5
Your place is indescribable and a secret slice of heaven hidden away. We felt at home the moment we pulled up and walked through the front door. What a Gem. We washed everything and tried to leave it just like when we arrived, even kept the bows to put around the towels. What special touches on everything in your “HOME away from HOME”. We can not say enough about this cottage, indescribable, every little touch from the comfort of the beds, sofa, blankets, front porch and the backyard!!! If you want to enjoy St Michaels this place gives you no choice. Perfection!!!!!!! Amenities were like a 5 star resort!!

A Spotless Rental Property with all the Amenities!

  • 5 of 5
Although hideaway is part of its' name, there is nothing "hidden" about Harbor Hideaway except being "hidden" among a wonderful area of historic beautiful homes. You have the convenience of a fabulous location whereby you can walk, or use the included bikes, to all the amenities of St. Michaels. We have always found the spotless cleanliness of the cottage to be outstanding as well as the homey, extremely comfortable atmosphere! We will continue to rent Harbor Hideaway for there are no surprises and the cottage only enhances your stay in this historic, quaint waterfront village. Although the cottage is pet friendly, there is absolutely no evidence pets have ever stayed due to Carol keeping her home impeccably clean! We have rented many places and Harbor Hideaway rates the highest of all our stays!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed here several times, every time gets better. Carol is a super host, she has quickly resolved any concerns, she is attentive and wants to ensure you have a great stay. Cottage is very well maintained and due to its location, one can just park and walk to any location in St Michaels. Carol has "refreshed" the interior giving it a very nice and comfortable feel. Quiet location, easy to relax and unwind. We will continue to return to Harbor Hide-Away for a short three-day weekends or full weeks.

Even Better Than Advertised

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented Harbor Hideaway at the last minute and we could not have been happier. The owmer was very responsive and her communications were clear. The house is absolutely spotless, modern, and it's loaded with all of the comforts of home. As other reviewers have noted, it's walking distance to just about anything in St. Michael's, yet it's quiet and peaceful. We like to cook for ourselves so having a "real" kitchen and a grocery store within walking distance was a huge plus. Harbor Hideaway gets an "A+" and we will be back!

Talbot County is host to over 10,000 miles of shoreline - and that means more breathtaking views of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.

Many wonderful events come to St. Michaels in the spring and summer months! All season long, there are events at the Chesapeake Maritime Museum, Crab Days in Tilghman, great shops on Talbot St. The warm days and flowers and wildlife have returned and the best place to experience it all is right here in St. Michael's. If golfing is more of your hobby than shopping, checking out Hog's Neck Public Course and HarbourTown Golf Course. Need a massage while on your relaxing weekend, St. Michael's has several to choose from, all within walking distance from your Harbor Hideaway cottage. If you like the simple beauty of the water, you'll find that only four houses away. Enjoy a morning or evening walk to take in all the beauty of this enchanted town that you'll want to come back to time and time again.
