AVAILABLE ALL YEAR!

SPRING FISHING HAS STARTED NOW,BRING YOUR WORMS AND CATCH SOME PERCH AND ROCK FISH!!

NEW THIS YEAR, FISHING AND CRABBING EXCURSION, IN 20 FOOT FIBERGLASS BOAT!!! FOR THOSE WHO BOOK A WEEK VACATION!!

Enjoy some tranquil island living on the Chesapeake Bay in a beautiful waterview beach house! 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. With binaculars you can see the Bald Eagles seahawks,Osprey, herons, swans, pelicans and other rare birds. Explore the shorelines and coves for indian artifacts, shells and sea glass.

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.

We mostly love catching the fish and crabs then cooking them up for a fresh seafood dinner!!

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was so wonderful and relaxing to be on Hoopers Island. It was so very nice of you to bring the live bushel of crabs and help us cook them in the outdoor steam pot. Thanks again for your lovely hospiltality.

Relaxing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This past November I was looking for a private place to have my Birthday Party and this was it! My friends and I loved it. We Had plenty of room outside at the picnic tables to eat crabs and barbecue on the grill. We played corn hole and Ladder ball and had a great view of the sunset over the Bay. Inside the house was plenty of room for my friends to sleep and relax. I would definitely stay here again any time of the year .

Great house. Wonderful sunsets, everything you need for a relaxing family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Laura's cottage. Everything we needed was there, including crabbing equipment, games for the children, plus, of course, a fully equipped kitchen. WE spent hours on the porch admiring the view. And the sunsets were spectacular!

The house is tastefully furnished, newly painted and very clean. Laura and family couldn't have been more accommodating. WE had a wonderful time and will definitely return.

Been staying w/ Laura for few years now. The house is beautiful, the location spectacular. We go down every year to hunt, fish and just enjoy this lovely home and pristine area. My family and I highly recommend. You won't find a nicer place or nicer people.

Fabulous Eastern shore

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed at this terrific home in October of 2011 and immediately felt so blessed to have found such an incredible dwelling...welcoming and cozy and well-stocked with supplies of all kinds. The furnishings were comfortable and plentiful. We had meals both at the picnic table in the yard and also on the long porch at the front of the home as well as in the well-appointed kitchen.

The years following, we arrived in Springtime, Summer, or Fall, enjoying the seasons and the hospitality of the owners in all the "little things" that make a stay memorable. Crabbing, fishing excursions, outdoor games to be played as well as games for evenings inside the home. A gas BBQ ready to use ; and a favorite of family both young and old - the backyard swing.

Needless to say, we are making another long journey from California to Maryland this Summer to what we now fondly call our "second home". We can hardly wait to once again enjoy this delightful home and the surrounding

locales to visit and explore.

Fun & Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

My family would like to thank you for a wonderful vacation!!! What a beautiful place Hooper's Island is! You are truly blessed to live there!

Your home had everything we could possibly need. What a view from the upstairs window seats and the front porch!

The children (and we are all children) absolutely loved crabbing and fishing! We caught many different fish including a LARGE catfish and many crabs. We had fish and crabs one night for supper, and everyone was stuffed.

We spent many hours on the beach; collecting shells, sea glass, and drift wood as well as swimming and relaxing.

We would like to thank you for letting us bring our dogs with us. They loved playing in the yard and sunning on the porch! They even went swimming in the bay!

We appreciate your time spent showing us around the island and demonstrating how to use the crab traps. Your hospitality and friendship meant so much to us! We were happy to meet your husband also.

What a fun and relaxing week! Thanks again for everything!

Great little island

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time on Hooper's Island. The house was cute and we loved the outdoor shower. The water in absolutely beautiful and the crabs were delicious! The owner was very willing to help us with everything we needed. She even arranged the crabs to be delivered to us! The boat ramp at Rippon's was really nice and easy to navigate. We had the river all to ourselves!
