St. Michaels Estate Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, sleeps 8+

On the upper reaches of the Eastern Shore's beautiful Broad Creek lies the pet-friendly mini-estate known as Broad Creek Lodge. 5.6 acres of waterfowl and wildlife woods, ponds and rivers. Deer, turkey, fox, quail, songbirds of all kinds and in season, Canada geese and duck abound. Miles of flat back country roads for biking and miles of water for exploring the shoreline in your canoe or kayak - a birders, bikers, and boaters paradise.

The house is designed for entertaining with an open floor plan that segues from room to room and spills over on to the decks leading to the pool and waterfront. All on one floor, the three bedrooms occupy one end of the house while the rest is strictly for fun from the totally equipped kitchen to the open living areas to the billiard room and media center.

A dock with lights and running water for your boat or use our two kayaks, wind surfer, or paddle boards. The dock is also good for crabbing, fishing; and watching the sunrise.

A picnic loggia for eating hot steamed crabs that you caught and cooked on the outdoor crab cooker

A pair of mountain bikes for you to use to tour the surrounding areas.

A beautiful pool for sunning and swimming on hot summer days

A hot tub for those aching muscles from days of working hard at sailing, biking, fishing, etc. not to mention playing pool in your private billiard room

Art galleries, fine restaurants, shops, Eco tours, museums, etc., etc. For what more could one ask?

A holiday at Broad Creek Lodge!

Chesapeake Bay Real Estate vacation rental division manages the property for Harold & d'Arcy Harder who grew up in the St. Louis, MO, area, and met in college @ University of MO - Rolla. They have been married for ~38 years, and have two children, Sarah & Christopher, who both live in Knoxville, TN. Sarah & her husband, David, were married @ d'Arcy's sister's house on the Chesapeake Bay in Claiborne, MD. Harold & d'Arcy currently reside in Decatur, AL.

Harold & d'Arcy Harder purchased this estate in 2012

Harold & d'Arcy Harder have been visiting this area for over 32 years; d'Arcy's parents retired in St. Michaels, MD, in 1982, and formerly lived directly across Broad Creek from this Bozman house. Several other brothers, sisters and extended family members have moved to the surrounding area, and Harold & d'Arcy look forward to retiring here one day.

This home is special due to it's proximity to d'Arcy's parents' former residence across Broad Creek, and closeness to her sister's house in Claiborne & her brother's house in Wittman. It also has a deep-water dock to facilitate our boat, and a pool, hot-tub and pool table for relaxation & entertainment. During our first visit to the house, we were greeted by 4 deer and 6 turkeys which are now prominently displayed on the Broad Creek Lodge sign at the end of our driveway.

Perfect place for a perfect vacation

Best vacation ever! Broad Creek Lodge has everything you could possibly want for fun and relaxation by the water. We loved the rural setting and enjoyed watching the deer, osprey, and other birds. So relaxing sitting on the deck or by the pool and looking out at the water and up at the stars at night. The house is beautiful and spacious and the beds were so comfortable. Tina is the perfect hostess and made sure everything was perfect for our stay. We are grateful for the privilege of staying at this wonderful property- we will be back next year!

We were looking for a loacation for a long weekend to unwind and relax and could not have been happier with our selection of this property! Serene and private, we loved the pool and view from the back of the property. It was fun to watch the Osprey and catch a few crabs off the pier. Tina was very helpful and accomodating to our needs, we would definately come again.

We had a GREAT time here

The house is very clean and well maintained, and most importantly, you can have so much fun in this vacation house. We all love the view of water, the big back yard, fishing dock, kayak, pool, hot tub and much much more. This place offers way too much fun than it appears on paper. Nobody wants to leave at the end of our vacation, and we are all looking forward to come back here soon.
Tina is very helpful of getting things in order and stayed in touch to make sure everything is perfect for us. She is all about the customers, and wants to make this a memorable time for us. I am very appreciate of all her help. The property and the manager both deserve a five star.
Owner's Response: We are very pleased that you enjoyed yourself in our home, and we look forward to having your return soon! I will ensure that Tina sees your comments and will personally thank her for supporting your needs!

Fun Getaway

Having decided to book a last minute getaway from the DC area, we were fortunate to find the Broad creek Lodge. The house provided the perfect ameinites for our two very active eleven-year-old boys. And being a pet-friendly place is a definite plus. We had a great time.
