This fully and newly renovated, cape style, Bayview home is on 3 acres, where you can enjoy playing horseshoes, volleyball, crabfeasts, and cookouts on our gas BBQ grill. Watch our commercial crabbers come in with their catch and buy crabs and oysters right off the boat at wholesale prices! Then have fun cooking them right in the backyard on our homemade steaming pot! Bring your crab nets as you walk knee- high and catch your own soft crabs. Fishing and crabbing is plentiful on the island. Bring your boat and do both,or you can arrange a trip on our local Fishing Charter Boats.( Boat ramp just minutes away.)
We are located in the best hunting and rockfish areas of North America. Also available duck and deer hunting properties. This Island Waterfront Community offers kayaking to the bird sanctuary.

Bike the island. Ride to Old Salty's for lunch, route 343, the route of the Eagle man Triathalon. The roads are flat and scenic, enjoyable to ride or walk your dog. Take a swim on our public beach as you look for arrowheads, or drive 70 minutes to the famous Ocean City Boardwalk and beach. Spend the day swimming in the ocean and enjoy the shops, restaurants,mini golf amusement parks and fine foods they have to offer.
In my rental I have about 100 flyers/brochures of activities for every vacation experience! Drive 15 minutes to the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, drive around the refuge, stop and do the nature walks and bike trails. Birdwatching is very popular here, where bald eagles thrive.
Stop in the visitor centers gift shop and information center see the stuffed wild animals on display. And look at the live Web Cam of eagles nesting their young. The setting and solitude is exceptional, as you take in the tranquil views of the Chesapeake Bay. Drink your Am. coffee on the front porch, where in the evening you have the perfect 'open view' of the sunsets over the Bay! When it's time to retire in the evening curl up with a good book on our fully lit window seats. Spending the evening out?
Cambridge offers an array of dining choices, movie theaters, or the Hyatt Chesapeake for golfing or spa visits. Visit the quaint towns of St. Michaels,and Oxford. Our Bayview Home is the perfect relaxing family getaway, retreat,vacation or whatever the occasion hope to see you here for your vacation fun!!!

About Laura Johnson
My family and I love living here on the island we have raised our children here and now our grandchildren. We can not think of a better place to be in the world. We really enjoy the fishing,crabbing,kayaking,and biking the island.
Laura Johnson purchased this house in 1998
Why Laura Johnson chose Hoopers Island
This was the home my husband was raised in. It was left to us , so we completely renovated it all new inside, and now rent it so others can enjoy our nice cozy home and see the way of life here as the watermen work on the bay and come in daily with their catches. What a great experience!!
What makes this house unique
Enjoy steaming your own blue claw crabs we get fresh daily off the boats at wholesale prices. Then cook them right in the backyard! In the fall you can buy oysters right off the boats. Then in the evening sit on the porch and watch the sun set over the Bay!
