SEA GLASS COTTAGE BAYFRONT LOCATION!! VIEWS!! AUG/SEPT AVAILABLE

St. Michaels Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathroom, sleeps 6

History is preserved and artfully rewritten in this enchanting cape cottage designed for casual carefree living in the quaint village of Claiborne. Just outside St. Michaels, Maryland, it is the perfect blend of the past and the present. Over the years, before the Bay Bridge was built, part of this house was used as the ' waiting area' for the ferries between Annapolis and Claiborne. Arriving visitors could either take a train from the station at the dock to points further east, or be met by auto and driven (over oyster shell roads) to one of the many boarding houses along the shore. Families would spend the summer, with fathers and husbands joining them on the weekends for days of good meals, swimming in the Bay, and just plain relaxing. Though the ferries and train have long since disappeared, the wonderful food, abundant activities and relaxation are still to be found. Private, yet not too secluded, this is the quintessential Eastern Shore experience everyone desires in today's busy world!

In addition, in the living room to the left of the fireplace is the original ' ticket window ' remaining from the ferry station. A beautiful built-in china closet with antique panes of glass gives the dining area a touch of elegance.

Upstairs there are two large bedrooms with Bay views, a quiet sitting area and a powder room. The first floor consists of the master ensuite bedroom, open living and dining area, fully equipped kitchen with stainless appliances, quartz counters and separate laundry room. The lovely bayfront sunporch affords wonderful views of the water, boating activity, wildlife and amazing evening sunsets!

Outside, one will find a spacious yard, many Spring flowers, mature willow oaks and a brick and stone patio overlooking the Bay and landing. Desirable Adirondack chairs for viewing the sunsets, wrought iron set for alfresco dining and a private dock for kayaks, kites, fishing or docking your boat with the sandy beach only steps away! Very peaceful and quiet...with much ambiance. Perfect for one or two couples or small family getaway. So convenient too, no parking worries, no drive to the boondocks!... 5 minutes to town and everything St. Michaels has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank-you for such a relaxing stay at Thanksgiving! In addition to beautiful views and sunsets, the cottage was very comfortable and cozy with much attention to detail. Visiting the nearby shops and restaurants was another plus. Hope to return again soon!

We discovered Claiborne and this absolutely charming, historic waterfront cottage after looking at many properties for several years. Part of the 'Hamptons of the Chesapeake,' it has been described as one of THE places to be at any time of the year. St. Michaels and this surrounding area has been featured in Coastal Living, What's Up Eastern Shore and recently, Victoria magazines.

This unique cape home which was totally renovated in 2012, features endless and dramatic sunset views, and is truly one of the coziest cottages in the area. High ceilings, muted colors, open floorplan ...historic feeling at its best. Brand new gourmet kitchen, stylish interior with coastal cottage flair, sprinkled with antiques, new bathroom fixtures, hardwood floors, heat and air to be controlled separately in each room. Wonderful sunroom and magical outdoor spaces. Great views of the Eastern Bay, Kent Island and the distant Bay Bridge...watch for cruise ships, cargo vessels and other craft passing by. Fabulous area to walk, bike, or stroll to Claiborne beach to search for sea glass, interesting shells, Indian points and other treasures!

GREAT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed everything......the lovely, comfortable cottage, the views (especially at sunset), biking, the little beach and fishing off the dock. We also enjoyed the shops and restaurants in St. Michaels. This was really a great getaway for us and our two adult children!

GREAT LOCATION AND BEAUTIFUL HOME

My family and I had a wonderful time at this lovely cottage. The home is in great shape and the location is outstanding. Lots to do in town, on the beach, or on the water. We hope to get back soon.

Owner's Response: David,
We are happy you and your family had a good time and enjoyed the cottage for your Mother's Day/birthday get-away! We do have an advantage being directly on the Eastern Chesapeake Bay because that is what life is about in St. Michaels. Hopefully, you are able to return again soon...thank-you so much for the compliments! Sincerely, Michele K.

TRULY SPARKLING CLEAN AND COZY

  • 5 of 5
Finally we have found a truly clean and immaculate vacation rental in the St Michaels area! From the high quality linens and towels that feel like 5 star hotel products to the comfortable beds and other furnishing to the awesome sunset views across the bay. We could not have been happier, the owners assisted us in any way possible to feel just at home. We will definitely return and this will be "our home" in St Michaels!

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family was smitten from the moment we arrived. This cottage has a lovely back yard (we spent significant time in the pictured adirondack chairs enjoying the spectacular sunsets). The inside was immaculate, tastefully furnished and comfortable. This charming cottage is just the right blend of rustic and well-appointed. The best endorsement we can provide is to say if we have the opportunity we would love to come back.

COTTAGE IS ABSOLUTE HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a week at this wonderful cottage. If you are looking for time away from it all, with views of the water, watch sunsets, and just enjoy life -- this is the place. The owners are wonderful. The place is ideal -- well kept, all of the rooms are well appointed and perfectly but simply kept, the cottage is right on the bay, and close enough to St. Michael's for a bike rides to and from. There are a few gems of restaurants in Oxford, St. Michael's, and one in Tilghman Island that we found. We cooked and grilled at the cottage. For those who want to bring work -- this is not for you. For those who want to re-connect -- this is for you. We would absolutely recommend this cottage for a vacation.

HONEYMOON BLISS

  • 5 of 5
We chose this location for our honeymoon for two reasons: The first being that the location itself is breathtaking, and the cottage is so welcoming and delightful. The second being that the owners were so wonderful during our stay, answering questions as needed, and providing valuable information about the surrounding area and local dining that St. Michael's has to offer. Our honeymoon was amazing, and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect place!!
