COMFORTABLE 5 BEDROOM WATERFRONT HOME ON CHESAPEAKE BAY

Kent Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This spacious and comfortable home on the Chesapeake Bay is the perfect location for a family vacation, reunion, or accomodation while in the area for a wedding or other special event. Relax on one of our numerous decks or balconies or lounge in the hammock and let the sweet sounds of the Chesapeake take your troubles away! Or, if fishing and crabbing is more your thing, you can do both right on our 150' dock. You and your family will have a great time in this large home with four queen beds and two twins- we even have two separate living rooms which is great for travelers with children! We are less than an hour from all the sights in DC and Baltimore, and 25 minutes away from historic Annapolis and St. Michaels. We are also less than 10 minutes away from major wedding venues including Chesapeake Bay Beach Club, Kent Manor Inn, Queen Annes Bayside, and others! Bring your camera to have a memory of our incredible sunsets over the Chesapeake Bay!

The home is equipped with a fully stocked kitchen, commercial crab steamer, lots of beach chairs and furniture for our large rooftop decks and patios, swimming floats and toys, and two hammocks!

We chose this location because it has a huge yard directly on the Chesapeake Bay and has great crabbing and fishing. Its proximity to Annapolis (25 minutes) and DC and Baltimore (both 50 minutes) made it even more appealing. Its even close to the ocean beaches of Delaware and Maryland! We love Kent Island's local charms- friendly people, beautiful landscapes, and fantastic seafood!

We love the sunsets over the Chesapeake Bay, getting up early to fish or crab off of our dock, having family get-togethers on our huge waterfront lawn, and taking advantage of everything else Kent Island has to offer!

PEACEFUL LOCATION, SPACIOUS HOUSE, PERFECT FOR LARGE FAMILY GATHERING

  • 5 of 5
This home was the perfect fit for us! We had family coming in from all over the country and abroad, and sought a home-base for the week for all of us to combine a family reunion and a family member’s wedding at Kent Manor Inn (about a 10 minute drive). The house is large enough for multiple socializing areas, as there are two separated living rooms and a large picturesque back yard. Although a bit of a quirky home, it was just the right mix of amenities and comfortable sleeping quarters. We took full advantage of the sunsets on the raised boat-deck and from the screened –in porch! The owners were very helpful from the start of the reservation; mind you we needed to nail down our reservation many months in advance given the distance of travel for many. Further, as the date got closer every request was immediately responded to. I have rented several homes from VRBO.com and I would put this home at a highly recommended status. I believe the price represents the quirks of the home, as it is not the most modern, BUT the love of family ownership is very present and appreciated. Lastly, we hosted the post-wedding/Mother’s Day brunch at the house and found the property to be a wonderful backdrop for such an amazing gathering. If a similar occasion beckons us to convene on Kent Island, we would definitely rent this home again!

WEDDING WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for our daughter's weekend wedding on Kent Island. The owner was most accommodating to our specific needs. The home was clean and neat upon arrival. The setting is just beautiful, with lots of outdoor space. The bedrooms accommodated our daughters and several guests in a comfortable manner. The kitchen was fully equipped and was able to handle a post wedding luncheon of 30 plus people. The weekend was to be cool and rainy but the owner had turned on the heat prior to our arrival and supplied wood for the fireplace. We would highly recommend this home if you are planning a stay on Kent Island. We plan to come back ourselves.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this wonderful location last weekend with my family and friends. We got very lucky with the weather. It was an amazing time. We had friends every night, had small get together and everyone enjoyed it very much. House is very spacious and very comfortable. All the restaurants and stores are nearby. Annapolis and DC are just as close. We were able to relax and do some tourist stuff. So definitely highly recommend this place. We were very sad to leave- can’t wait to come back next year hopefully.

MY FAMILY CANT WAIT TO COME BACK- WHAT A DREAM HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
My family has rented this house last weekend and can I just say- it has been one of the best vacations we have taken. We did a small party for our family and friends- and everyone had a great time. House was in a very good condition.
Lucky for us- the weather was so nice- my kids spend time fishing, playing in the yard all day long.
We already booked this for next year, can’t wait to come back to this place.
Also- owner called to check on us- and he seems very sweet and very accommodating, since we could stay later then our check out time. I would definitely recommend this place to families and we could even have our small Terrier with us!!!

GOOD PRICE, GOOD LOCATION, BUT NUMEROUS SMALL PROBLEMS

  • 3 of 5
The price is excellent, as is the location, and the house is spacious and it's great to be on the bay. The kitchen and bathrooms are quite outdated, however, and the house has not been well maintained. The screens on the porch windows were ripped, water gushed into the living room during a hard rain, and the carpets, walls, ceilings and bathroom tile show wear. The night we arrived, linens did not appear until after 11 p.m. and the septic tank had overflowed. The owner did apologize and had the situations dealt with quickly, but it was not a particularly comfortable stay. It also took 2 1/2 months and the help of VRBO to get our damage deposit back.

Owner's Response: This renter visited our home prior to the new septic system being installed. We have invested over $20,000 in a new state of the art system to avoid issues like this. We were unaware that this renter required linens until the last minute and because we were handling the cleaning of them off site due to the septic issues, they did arrive late for which we apologize. We are unaware of any leaks and have no water damage, but we do get strong storms in the summer since we are right on the bay- if the upstairs balcony door is not closed, water can come in to the downstairs porch. Our home is not brand new, but we've redone a bathroom, all ceilings and the kitchen floor in the past year and have more improvements planned for next year. Our other guests have been pleased with what we offer- a large, 5 bedroom home directly on the Chesapeake Bay for under $300 a night even in peak season. This renter's deposit was returned in full after we investigated the leak she reported as we believed it may have been caused by leaving the upstairs door open.

Map

There is great fishing for rockfish, bluefish, perch, spot, and croaker as well as crabbing right off of our 150' dock. Or, if you prefer, book a charter boat from a marina five minutes from the house to get out on the bay and catch the big ones! If you are looking for other outdoor activities, visit one of the many u-pick farms in the area for fresh peaches, strawberries, blueberries and other seasonal produce. Or, visit nearby historical gems such as Annapolis, St. Michaels, or Chestertown. Ocean Beaches such as Rehobeth and Ocean City are 90 minutes away and Washington DC and Baltimore are less than 60 minutes away.
