Overview

St. Michaels Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

The recently restored historic Washington Melson House, located at 206 Locust St. is a 2 bedroom vacation cottage that is a short walk from all museums, parks, restaurants, churches and shops in St. Michaels!

The house was built around 1840 by Washington Melson, a sailor, believed to be one of two individuals who voted for Abraham Lincoln in the presidential election of 1860. The house was originally built at only 16 feet wide but enlarged to the current width soon thereafter.

The first floor of the original portion of the Melson House includes a living room and a dining room. To the rear of the original house on the first floor is a kitchen area which opens up by French doors to an outdoor patio. Also connected to the kitchen is a large family room with a queen sleep sofa. There is a half bath off the family room.

The second floor of the original portion of the Melson house is a large bedroom having two twin beds. The second floor to the rear of the house (accessed by a different staircase than that in the original portion), contains the master bedroom having a queen size bed. There is a full bathroom off this bedroom.

Homecoming

  • 5 of 5

We are planning to relocate to St. Michael's and needed a place to rent for a month to reacclimate ourselves to this area. The Melson House was the perfect place. We rarely used our car because of the convenient proximity to Talbot St. (main st). With beautiful sunsets on the Harbor and church bells on the hour we enjoyed our stay immensely. The accomodations were adequate in every respect. We will return.

Lovely cottage in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Three of us stayed here in October and the cottage is lovely, with lots of character details. The older part of the house where you can eat breakfast or other meals, is authentic and very charming. We felt lucky to have foind a place like this! The kitchen has new appliances and is adequately stocked for vacation cooking. We liked how the house is divided in two halves, with a comfortable living room and the large master bedroom and bath on one side, and the older part with twin bedroom upstairs. We were with my father in law, and this gave us privacy, which would also be great fro 2 couples or a family. We took our own linens but the bed linens are all newer and fresh and very nice, so we won't take bed linens next time.

.The location can't be beat, 1/2 block to the park at the harbor, and a few shirt blocks to museum area and shopping street. Because it was off season, we were able to do a weekend stay, and that was great. We would definitely stay here again.

Really Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

One of the most relaxing and enjoyable times we have had! The cottage is unbelievalbly quiet, comfortable and cozy. It is beautiful inside and out, its charm hangs on you like a favorite sweater. Once we parked after arriving we never drove again until we were leaving St. Michaels. We walked to dinner and shopping and bicycled around. We enjoyed great dinners, friendly shop owners and locals. The value compared to a hotel room is beyond belief, why stay in a room when you can have an entire cottage to yourself? Well worth the money and will be returning.

Crabtastic Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the perfect great escape. Conveniently located in the middle of quaint St Michael's close to the harbor, restaurants, and shops. The property is clean and well-maintained with beautiful landscaping. The building has been lovingly restored keeping to the historical accuracy, yet well placed modern conveniences make the stay even more enjoyable.

I have visited this cottage several times and will continue to do so! A great place to gather with family and friends or a quick weekend escape to enjoy life on the shore.
