STILL POND CREEK WATERFONT ESTATE W/ BEACH, PRIVACY AND DOCK!

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!

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

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.

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.

Super relaxed stay here

  • 5 of 5
The week we spent here on Still Pond Creek was terrific. The house was extremely spacious, allowing people to have private time to read, nap, etc. , without feeling like they had to be right in the mix with everyone else, yet there were areas plenty big enough to accommodate the whole group.
The property itself is remote and very quiet, and we really enjoyed the time there.

We would definitely return to this property!

  • 5 of 5
All 6 of us had a wonderful time. We felt like we were home because we had all of the amenities of home! The house and property was exactly as it had been described. We spent time on the beach, on the outdoor patio, the indoor patio and the living room. Sitting by the bonfire each night was so relaxing and the hot tub was just perfect after a long bike ride. The guys prepared most meals for the girls and commented how well equipped the kitchen was. We would definitely schedule a return visit!

Relaxing slice of nature!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect weekend for relaxation and time with friends. There was ample space for the 6 of us to spread out and feel at home. We spent one night down by the beach/bonfire area and the other night on the back deck/hot tub area. We cooked all of our own meals and the dining area and kitchen were well equipped with everyone you need. There was an outdoor picnic table and an enclosed area if you prefer. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hot tub was spectacular as well as the view. We brought kayaks and enjoyed time on the water. We drove to a waterside crab shack that was amazing!

Quiet NYE w/ Friends

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our time at Still Pond Point. The owner, Jay, is marvelous and incredibly responsive. There was a glitch with the hottub and Jay somehow figured out how to get a professional to come out and fix it--on New Year's Eve! It has a great kitchen and is great for groups trying to find a quiet spot to get away. For runners, you can jump out the front door and there are great routes right there for you.

I would like to say, EVERYTHING was PERFECT. From the minute of arriving, to the very last minute of departing, our stay was exactly as we expected. The house was furnished with every amenity that was described in the review. The property was breathtaking. Beach, with fire pit was relaxing. Boat dock was just fine for fishing. Horseshoe pit was used endlessly. Front yard pasture was perfect to sun tanning. Yes, I would recommend this property to friends, and relatives. We ventured out once to stock the fridge, so we could just sit back and RELAX......Perfect, Perfect, Perfect
