Kent Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 Beds/2 Baths (sleeps 8) with Central Air Conditioning

Please tell us a little about your family, who would be staying at the home, and the reason for your visit to Kent Island.

This home is a special place to us & has been in our family for over 50 years. Over the years we have made many updates to the home. The location is a serene 3 acre waterfront setting, on Cox Creek, that features incredible western views along with gorgeous sunsets. Relaxing in the 3 season sun room and watching the sunset is a must! Panoramic views of the water can be had from most rooms in the home. Central location allows for day trips to DC, Annapolis, Baltimore, & St. Michaels.

The home has approx 2500 square feet, a wonderful Great Room with 46' HDTV w/cable, fireplace, large Dining Room table that seats 10, & eat-in kitchen. There is a spacious Master Bedroom (queen bed) + Master Bath, Bedroom #2 has a queen bed, Bed #3 has 2 twin beds, Bedroom #4 is also the den off the Great Room & has a pullout sofa bed.

Relax and enjoy the wonderful Chesapeake Bay! : Relax and enjoy the wonderful Eastern Shore of Maryland and Kent Island. Dine at Harris Crab House, The Narrows, The Fisherman's Inn, Hemingway's, or Annie's Restaurant (among many others). Golf at nearby Queenstown Harbor Golf (15 minutes away). Bike on the Cross Island Trail (5 minutes away). Kayak or Canoe at the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center (15 minutes away). Walk along the beaches at Terrapin Park or Mattapeake Beach (10 minutes away), Kentmorr Restaurant and Marina (10 minutes away, great beach to swim). Take scenic drives to many exciting areas on the Chesapeake Bay including the US Naval Academy in Annapolis (30 minutes) or the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels. Many outlet stores are also nearby in Queenstown. The best thing to do here is Nothing! Gazing at the water is a very popular activity. Fishing and Crabbing Trips may be arranged for an additional fee (possible departure right from our pier!).

How to find out about local events: Search 'Kent Island', 'Queen Anne's County', 'Talbot County', 'Kent County', and 'Anne Arundel County' for web sites and more activities. Kent Island is in Queen Anne's County.

If you Google 'Fisherman's Inn Kent Island' they have an excellent list of 'Things to Do' on their website.

Beautiful Waterfront Setting

  • 5 of 5
This was our third stay at this property and we hope to return. It is a lovely well maintained home that is ideal for travellers of all ages. It is located in a safe quiet neighborhood but close to restaurants and stores. Harry and Scott are a pleasure to work with and all transactions have been seamless.

Very Clean, Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
A true home away from home. Close to the quaint restaurants and shops of Kent Island. Spent the weekend with our Mid. An easy drive across the bridge from Annapolis. Would highly recommend this property and look forward to staying again in the future.

A Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of six, all adults except for our lively 4-yr-old. All of us found this lovely house a comfortable place to stay: we read on the huge expanse of lawn that stretches down to the water, we snoozed and chatted on the screened- in porch, we watched TV in the generous living room, we cooked the crabs and fish we caught off the dock in the generously appointed kitchen, and we slept soundly at night in the wonderfully comfortable beds. We ventured off to the beach, a ten-minute drive from the house and also spent both time and money at the
nearby mall. In all, it is a great place to decompress--and to admire the beautiful sunsets. All was as promised by the online descriptions provided us..

Our thoughtful hosts had provided in the house detailed information about the local area and the region. There are many additional ways to spend your time in short distances from the house.

We all promised to return, including the 4-yr-old!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Benton's Pleasure to work on a project and was not only efficient but the gorgeous waterfront view from the sunroom made it feel like I was in nature. The rest of the house was just as warm, clean and extremely well-maintained. I slept more soundly than I have in months and still cannot believe this beautiful property wasn't already snatched up for the weekend when I made my last minute plans! I will definitely be staying there again....it was the peaceful retreat I needed and was sad I could only stay for the weekend!

Wonderful Rental on Kent Island

  • 5 of 5
Having stayed at several rentals in the Kent Island area, we have to say that this is the best. It is the perfect family getaway, close enough to stores, restaurants, and attractions, yet situated in a quiet, safe residential neighborhood. We had family from the area visit during our vacation and it worked well for the 3 year old as well as the 70+ year olds. There are a few steps to negotiate in order to enter the house, but after that it is all on one level. It is very spacious with the master suite at one end of the house and the two bedrooms and den at the other with the second bath near. Although we did not need to use it, the den would work well as a 4th bedroom. The air conditioning kept up with the hot weather quite well. The house was inviting and comfortable with pleanty of space to gather or private space to be alone. Harry was very easy to work with and our transactions were seamless. We highly reccomend this property and hope to return.
