Reviewer Comments:
Crickets Waterman Cottage is in a perfect location for touring the historic town of Oxford as well as serving as a central location to tour other locations on the Eastern Shore. The cottage is located next to a wonderful market, is near a museum and the local library and and within a short walking distance of the water--both the bay (with a park) and the marina. We would not hesitate to return here and hope that we will be able to do so next year.

Manager responded on 10/24/2013:
Would love to have you back. We agree Cricket's location (and interior updates) make this historic cottage one of our guests' favorites.

Reviewer Comments:
We had a very peaceful and relaxing time at the Crickets Waterman Cottage. It is a beautifully refurbished cottage with almost any amenity one could wish for on vacation. We invited some friends for the Labor Day weekend and despite the smallness of the cottage, no one felt cramped. We also enjoyed taking our bikes to the ferry and cycling into St. Michaels, and kayacking around the marinas and small tributaries. A great get-away destination within easy reach of Philadelphia!

Reviewer Comments:
All in all the Cottage was adorable. We enjoyed our stay in Oxford very much. There were just a few issues. I was concerned with the lack of security. The only lock on the doors was a very simple turn lock, very similar to a bedroom. The yard is very poorly maintained so the bugs are so bad it is almost impossible to sit on the cute porch. Bathrooms have nowhere to put your toiletries or towels. Ceilings are so low that when you cook on the stove top the fire alarm goes off. House is very clean and furnished nicely. The location is perfect.

Reviewer Comments:
Oxford, MD, is a spectacularly beautiful town, and Crickets Waterman Cottage is a perfect place to enjoy it. Located on a quiet side street only a block from the town park, all that Oxford has to offer is at your fingertips. The house itself is charming, well-equipped, and beautifully renovated. You'll have trouble deciding whether to be out enjoying things, sitting on the porch or in the yard, or hanging out indoors in the wonderful kitchen or the comfy living room. One thing not to miss: early each morning, walk the few steps to the Oxford Market to buy fresh-baked muffins hot from the oven.

Oxford, Maryland, was officially founded in 1694, making it one of Maryland's oldest towns. Oxford is located near the mouth of the Tred Avon River and served as an important port of entry for British trade vessels in Colonial times. Oxford enjoyed prominence as a shipping center that was surrounded by wealthy tobacco plantations. After the American Revolution, the British import business dried up and the town declined for many years until the oystering businesses began to flourish in the late 1800's.

Today, Oxford is a quiet town that is enjoyed by visitors who appreciate its history and charm. In 2011, Yachting Magazine named Oxford the world's best waterfront town. Chesapeake Bay Magazine has previously named the town 'Best of' in the following categories—Best Town for Families, Best Town for Inexpensive Docking and Best Town for Sightseeing.
