Just finishing up a short stay in this lovely home. We enjoyed our time here very much. From the fully equiped kitchen with cozy, yet elegant surroundings to the long dock with Adirondack chairs for enjoying a beautiful sunset-it is all here-everything you'd want a vacation home to have and more. My husband and I enjoyed our first night's dinner on the dock watching the sunset. The next morning we each went kayaking to discover Harris creek. On a rainy day we read books from the many choices available in the built in bookcases that line the family room. Enjoying the waterfront views and swaying trees in the wind was a fun past time also. What a wonderful find! The owner is easy to communicate with and available for any questions you might have. (The decorating is such a treat to take in-truly). We will leave with wonderful memories of our time here.....
Don't miss a visit if you can.

we recently spent 3 days at this rental. it was one of the most interesting and eclectic rentals I have ever stayed . it has a magnificent waterfront setting. that being said, I would recommend this as a place to visit but you wouldn't want to stay here. the problems began upon arrival when there is nobody there to greet you and you must find the key and let yourself in. therefore, there is no intro to where things are, systems, passwords, etc.. written instr. were almost non-existent. there is only one key so this presents a problem with two couples. the waterfront setting is beautiful but the outdoor furniture was old and rusty and the cushions were so dirty and mildewed you wouldn't want to sit down on them. the house appears to have 2 wonderful additions attached to a run down cabin. the library is bright with beautiful views but so full of furniture and "stuff" you can barely walk around. almost every flat surface in this home is covered with stuff. the master bedroom is lovely except there is no closet and the master bath is small and cheaply done. the fixtures are old and the shower door is broken. it didn't really matter as so little water came out of the shower head. the other bath had no door knobs as they apparently broke and were just sitting on the vanity. the other downstairs bedroom was very small, dark and cavelike. it had much large furn. and therefore claustrophobic. it had no closet. the upstairs "bedroom" is a quasi finished attic space. it is only partially air conditioned with and old noisy window a/c with a broken control. the day we arrived was 88 degrees. the rest of the house is very dark and cluttered. the owner's personal stuff is everywhere so no cabinets or drawers in kitchen to put anything in no closets in any bedroom. home has very interesting antiques and art work but so much "stuff" you are overwhelmed. this home screams absentee owner and no mgmt. there is a reason there are no pictures of much of the house.

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5
This house is just what my husband and I were looking for! Comfort and privacy with an amazing water view. The large kitchen and River Room were wonderful, as was the very spacious master bedroom with windows looking out on the Harris Creek. We spent a lot of time on the dock (reading, eating, swimming, etc.) and loved the fact that we had such a big yard with so much privacy. The house is very close to St. Michael's, where we went often for dinner, shopping, etc. during the week that we were there. We loved using the kayaks off of the dock. There were no bicycles, but I do not think that we would have wanted to bike on the busy roads anyway. Although there were just two of us, the house really has 4 bedrooms (counting the sleeping loft) and it would have easily accommodated more people. If you rent this home, you will not be sorry - it is beautiful!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5
The description of this property is very accurate and we had a great week in this delightful place. The house itself was clean, beautifully furnished and homely. The view from the jetty constantly changes with the light and we enjoyed stunning sunsets and sunrises from the Adirondack chairs. We rented a skiff from tilghmanmarina.com which allowed us to explore all the other creeks beyond Harris creek, which, whilst beautiful, left us feeling "our creek" was the best!
We had no need for service from the owner as everything worked, but we felt that Marianne would be on the case if anything became problematic.

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5
The property was beautiful. The house was remarkable. The furnishings were awesome. It was everything that was described in the VRBO listing and more. We spent the week with our adult children and their spouses (20 somethings) and have never enjoyed being together more. We watched the sunset out on the water in the kayaks every night. Sitting on the dock was beautiful and peaceful. This was a great place to just relax and escape from stressful daily life. The library and music collection kept us entertained. The kitchen was perfect for cooking fresh caught crabs together as a family. Waking up in the morning and looking out on the water from bed was wonderful and I wish I could carry that feeling back home with me. The Hydrangeas were awesome! I would recommend this property to any family without little children. This is a place to relax, not entertain little ones. Maryanne was invaluable. She recommended great restaurants and entertainment in St. Michaels. We have nothing but good things to say. We'd love to go back again.
