Overview

Betterton House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-13)

Located about 85 miles or a 2-hour drive from Washington DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia, 'Still Pond Point' is a 50 acre 'getaway' located on Still Pond Creek, near Chestertown, Maryland. This penninsula-shaped property has 3,000 feet of direct waterfront! The private sandy beach and 150 foot pier are great for swimming, boating and relaxing with friends and family.

With 4,000 square feet, large room sizes and open layout, the house is designed for family get-togethers. The house can accomodate 2 families. The main gathering place inside the home is the large great room with quarry stone fireplace, satellite TV and plenty of comfortable seating for everyone. There are 4 bedrooms, each with king or queen beds and private bathrooms attached. Two of the guest rooms have additional trundle beds for extra sleeping capacity. There is also a den with a futon foldout bed.

The large wraparound deck with hot tub and screened porch are perfect for those warm Summer nights. The grounds are expansive, so the only neighbors you are likely to see are the four-legged kind - the property is home to plenty of wildlife. Bring your sports equipment for pickup ball games out on the huge front lawn, or gather around the fire pit at the beach for roasting marshmallows!

Still Pond Creek is connected to the Chesapeake Bay for easy access to the largest estuary in the world! The 'creek' is a smaller, protected body of water with no jellyfish, which makes for fantastic water skiing, tubing, fishing, etc. If you have a boat you can tie up to the dock, but the boat hoists are not available. There are several restaurants and other attractions in nearby Chestertown and Rock Hall.

Come with your family and friends and enjoy this spectacular property and explore the area to see all that the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay has to offer!

About Jay Barrett

I'm one of four siblings who share our parent's vacation home. We have enjoyed countless hours of water skiing, fishing, sailing and swimming on the creek and gathering with our families for holidays at Still Pond Point.

Jay Barrett purchased this house in 1981

Why Jay Barrett chose Betterton

My Parents purchased this property about 30 years ago and built the home to be a place for all of us to come together with our friends and family as often as possible. The convenience with close proximity to metropolitan areas, the desirable, quaint town of nearby Chestertown and the unique characteristics of the property were the primary reason's for selecting this location.

What makes this house unique

Still Pond Point offers a getaway like no other. Once you drive through the stone gate at the top of the driveway, the privacy and tranquility that the 270 degrees surrounding water awaits. With expansive grounds and everyone has room to roam and plenty of things to do. The sandy beach and fire pit at the point offer a comfortable spot for families to relax and enjoy while on vacation.

A great place to stay

  • of 5
We spent 5 days here with our kids, and I can only say it was great in every way. The house and setting are beautiful, and the house comes fully fitted with everything you need. The house is very comfortable, with plenty of room. There are things to do around the house including nice walks along the pond, bonfires, picnics, bbq and just relaxing. Jay was very responsive when we had questions. I can highly recommend Still Pond.

A perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful weekend at this beautiful home! The home is very large and can accommodate a large group. All of the bedding and the furniture is very comfortable and really makes one feel at home! The best part of this home are the beautiful surroundings. The little beach is perfect for relaxing and spending time outside. The dock is a wonderful place to sit by the water and fish or crab. The owner, Jay was very nice to deal with and made sure our visit was comfortable. We look forward to visiting this home again!

Incomparable Property

  • 5 of 5
This property is better described as "rustic" than "luxe" but make no mistake, you will be hard pressed to find something comparable anywhere. In our opinion, the description is understated. The house is located on what could fairly be characterized as a private estate: tens of acres of woodland, large open fields, and decks around the house all looking at 2/3rds waterfront land that includes not only the docks on the eastern side of the property, but a true sandy beach with firepit and quality Walpole furniture to the north (if you have a dog and the owner's permission to bring it you'll particularly appreciate this feature). The house itself could not be configured better particularly for extended families; difficult to describe in this word-limited context so suffice to say 2 very private master suites (one extremely private above the garage) and plenty of space. Not sure what else to say other than we'll be back, so don't steal our dates!

A vacation where dreams come true

  • 5 of 5
This property without a doubt was beyond belief. There is not a thing that would be needed except for personnel belongings and a few things listed by the owners. The private beach and private dock gave us all that was needed for our jet ski and boat. The property is very close to beautiful towns like Chestertown and Galena. I highly suggest the farmers Market in Chestertown which is only opened on Saturdays from 8:00AM to 12:00 PM. If checking in on Saturday, this will give you something to do until check in which is at 2:00 PM.
I would highly recommend this vacation spot and the Jacuzzi is a must. The kitchen is well equipped and the large screened porch you could spend your full time in. The owner (Jay) was very accommodating and even though we never met, he made your stay very comfortable. We will without a doubt book this property again next year. This was our second stay at this home.
