About Harold & d'Arcy Harder

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

Why Harold & d'Arcy Harder chose St. Michaels

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.

What makes this estate unique

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.

Beautiful and so peaceful

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Broad Creek Lodge. The property was clean and comfortable. We had fun in the pool and the hot tub was great. However, what we enjoyed the most were the beautiful views and the peace and tranquility. We had such fun crabbing right from the dock! Having access to the bikes and kayaks made our stay perfect.
Ruta from Chesapeake Bay Real Estate was very helpful in arranging our stay and in providing information about the area.

Good property right outside St. Michaels

  • 4 of 5
We booked the property in January for our July stay. There was a little confusion with property management early in the booking process, but our arrival was smooth. We got the key from the realtor and arrived to the house around 4:00 pm. The house is great for a group as it has an open concept. Bedrooms are comfortable and the kitchen has all the basics for the week. The outside is wonderful. We spent days in the pool and crabbed off the dock. There is a large open lawn for playing ball.

We did have an issue with ants. We rent houses every summer and know that spiders, ants, etc. are part of vacation homes, but the ants were a little more than what we've previously encountered. We purchased baits, but that didn't really help. We found ant spray under the counter and that did the trick. Like I said, it's to be expected in a summer rental, and is absolutely not a reflection of the condition of the home--it was neat and cleanly. There were also two doors not properly functioning, and we wish we had been notified of this beforehand as they were both outside doors. We notified the realtor/property manager of both issues and while she was apologetic, we just didn't feel she was very concerned (didn't offer any suggestions or to send someone out to the house).

We would recommend the property and loved the town St. Michaels.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and notification of the issues. We will ensure that our new property manager, is more responsive to your needs in the future.

Family Bliss!!

  • 5 of 5
My family spent the weekend at this property in celebration of my son's graduation. It was the best spot for cooking out and entertaining for a few hours with family and friends! This property affords a beautiful view with sooooo much outdoor space for children to play and adults to lounge. The outdoor experience was the GREATEST!! Having kayaks for my teens to venture out on the water, fishing on the pier, and relaxing at the pool was more than we expected. Not to mention the convenience of being close to St. Michael's Island for entertainment too!! This was by far a great accommodation that was comfortable and not so museum-like that we were afraid to move around in the house. Very comfortable with everything you need to enjoy yourself. We will definitely visit again!!!!! Sincere thanks to the Harders for sharing their Bozman home with us.

Perfect place for a perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5
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!

Great Getaway - Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5
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.
