Relax in our Victorian cottage in historic Cambridge's West End District. Enjoy views of the Choptank River from the enormous, wrap-around front porch's rocking chairs. Make dinner on the gas grill and dine out in the back yard. Walk 1 block to the Choptank River to enjoy the trees and open spaces of Long Wharf Park and check out the boats docked in the City Marina. Shop or dine in Cambridge's historical downtown.
Our house is nearly 100 years old (built in 1918), but it has been recently updated throughout with a gourmet kitchen, tile baths and fresh paint in all rooms. The designer furnishings mix vintage finds with newly-upholstered pieces. It has a casually elegant atmosphere.
When you're ready to venture out, Cambridge is a great 'home base' to explore the Eastern Shore. More shops and dining are only 20 minutes away in Easton. The charming towns of Oxford (20 minutes) and St. Michaels (30 minutes) make a lovely day trip. Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge offers amazing wildlife viewing opportunities. The Atlantic Ocean beaches are a little more than an hour away. Visit the outlets in nearby Queenstown, MD or enjoy Delaware's tax-free shopping.
Our 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath house sleeps 10 people (described below). It includes a number of 'kid friendly' features such as safety gates, a booster seat, a high chair, a Radio Flyer wagon for trips to the parks or shopping, and outlet covers in the kids' room and entertaining spaces.
