Kent Island House Rental Photos and Description

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.

Harry and his son Scott are co-owners of their family vacation home. The home has been in the family since 1950 and has been lovingly maintained and updated. This is a family effort and Harry or Scott personally 'check-in' all guests.

Scott Sanders purchased this house in 2005

We chose to keep the home in our family because of the beautiful setting and convenient location.

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.

Staying at Benton's Pleasure was awesome!! I spent many hours just watching whatever was happening on the river, watching the gloriousw sunsets and was even treated to seeing the GoodYear blimp float by!! Our family was very comfortable, able to relax and have one of the best week's of our lives. We had everything we needed, felt welcomed and accomodated. Thanks Harry for your warm & genuine hospitality, we are very grateful!!! We will definitely return.
The description in the listing was accurate and the photos reflected the house appearance and amenities. The condition of the property was well maintained and lovingly cared for, with lots of little extra touches. Harry was kind, friendly and very genuine in answering my questions. We did recommend the house to friends and family because of all of the attractions close to the property.

A great home base

  • 5 of 5
This home was exactly as advertised. Our family of two parents, three adult kids, one 11 year old and one grandfather fit beautifully. The accommodations were spotless. This is not a modern or fancy home, but a lovingly maintained family home with plenty of room for both privacy and the whole group to gather. The kitchen was way more than adequate for the cooking we needed to do, which tended toward cheese platters and morning coffee, and it, in addition to the dining room, accommodated all of us.
The bedroom situation is thus: two nice sized bedrooms (one with two twin beds and the other with a queen or double) were on one side of the house along with one bathroom. The fold-out couch in a room adjacent to the living room was fine for twenty year olds, but was not entirely separate from the living room and had a window and a door open to the living room. Not a problem for us, but nice to know. The master bedroom/bath was spacious and on the other side of the house, providing significant privacy.
THE PLACE TO BE was outside at sunset. What a show! Astoundingly beautiful sunsets most nights. Do bring your Off! mosquito repellant, but the changing view is absolutely worth a few mosquito bites.
We used the house as our home base for day trips to Easton, St. Michaels, Tilghman Island, Annapolis and Baltimore, and although we faced a couple of traffic snarl-ups, in general, we felt the location was quite convenient.
Harry and Scott the owners are very pleasant and fastidious homeowners.
I hope we'll be back.

Family gathering

  • 4 of 5
The house is as depicted as comfortable and homey. It was very clean and well maintained and there were many amenities provided to make our stay comfortable. The owner was very helpful and had notes everywhere to facilitate our use of his home. I would certainly recommend this property and will stay there again. The only suggestion I would make would be the replacement of the mattresses in the second bedroom.We had a family gathering and everyone found the accommodations to be most comfortable.
