About Martha Biggs

We were born, raised, and live in rolling hills of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. In the 1990's my husband and I were looking for a vacation home where we could enjoy the freedoms, fun, and safety we enjoyed as children of the 40's and 50's. We found that place in Oxford - a small town on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. 750 full time residents on 245 acres. Oxford is friendly, familiar, and safe.

Martha Biggs purchased this house in 1991

Why Martha Biggs chose Oxford

This house is one of three built in the 1920's by a father for his three daughters. Using the windows, wood, and doors from the old school house located on what is now Town Park in the center of Oxford, he built his daughters three homes along Town Creek on open farm land with a wonderful view of the Oxford Historical district. Oxford has grown since then with houses replacing the cedar trees and corn. The three homes have changed as well, but looking carefully you can see that originally they were very much the same and tell a story of a father taking care of his daughters without favoratism.

What makes this house unique

A cozy waterfront getaway for 2-6 persons with large school house windows and a private pool, waterfront gazebo and dock. The cottage's location provides walking distance to Historic Oxford. Once you drop your keys in the kitchen drawer you may find that walking, paddling, biking or boating are the only types of transportation needed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Loved it....would like to plan to visit every year. Your house is the most organized, adorable house I have seen in a long time. The neighborhood was terrific and Oxford is awesome. Your decorating, homey touches, providing everything someone would need is just great. We highly recommend it and if you ever need a reference, I will be glad to provide one. It could not have been better-except the weather!!"

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at this beautiful Oxofrd, MD getaway. The house was perfectly sized and equipped for us and our 6 month baby girl as well as visits from the grandparents. The house was comfortable and very lovely. Our favorite activities were playing with the baby in the really lovely pool, walks into Oxford, glasses of wine in the Gazebo, and the kayaks. Marty was very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this relaxing home!

Perfect Spot

We had a great week at Aurora Cove. We went for a week of biking in the area but because of a broken arm, I had to stay at the cottage while my husband and friends went on their bike journeys. We all enjoyed the time. I was able to explore the town of Oxford on foot and spend time by the pool, watching the boats go by and enjoying the peaceful days. We had fun taking our canoe to the nearby creamery on several occasions, and we found several lovely restaurants in the area. Aurora Cove is very nicely furnished and has a warm, inviting interior, friendly neighbors, and a 'step back in time' feel to it. The ferry and town of Oxford are charming. We enjoyed our week very much, hope to return! (writing this review in the cold winter, remembering the warm summer days and hoping to return in summer to actually do some biking.)

We enjoyed the most relaxing vacation we have experienced in the past 20 years. We loved the quiet of Oxford and its charm and "bikeability". The owner was incredibly hospitable, helpful and attentive to detail for furnishings, comfort and upkeep. Her suggestions for local intake, for us, were spot- on.( we followed every single piece of advice that she gave).
We hope to return next year.

Great place to vacation to really relax. The house was well equipped with everything one needs. The pool was so nice and being right on the water seeing boats go by was beautiful. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet place away form home. One more note, great place for dogs. Oxford is so dog friendly.

Awesome View of Town Creek in Oxford, MD

Our week long stay at Aurora Cove was highlighted by our time spent down near the water front dock. It was the perfect place to enjoy nature, a nice bottle of wine, and watch the sail & picnic boats come and go with a rhythm that was intoxicating and nostalgic all at the same time. The home itself is clean and well maintained. It is well appointed with many personal items that lend a certain charm to it's occupants. If you are looking for a quiet place to spend some quality time to re-connect with a loved one you'll feel right at home. An added bonus is that the owner makes every effort to provide useful advice of the surrounding area so that your stay will be a memorable one.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words - the gazebo is one of my favorite locations whether to snooze in the afternoon or as you did, enjoy a good glass of wine.

Fantastic stay!

The home was very comfy and in excellent condition! I loved the personal touches and the backyard is beautiful. The pool is very clean and the kayaks were a great bonus to our stay. I highly recommend this home for a wonderful vacation! St. Michael's and Easton are an easy drive away to access nice restaurants and bike trails. Oxford itself has a nice harborfront and some nice restaurants as well.
