Reviewer Comments:
The house is in a great location and is very well-maintained. It is convenient to all of the restaurants and to a little beach nearby. It appears that it was very recently renovated and is a delight. The rooms are bright and very comfortable. I would highly recommend it and would not hesitate to come again.

Reviewer Comments:
Wonderful property. Excellent location within easy walking distance of everything. Interior was very comfortable and had every amenity.
My only observation was that I noticed a nail in the planking in the upstairs master in front of the far right nightstand is sticking way up. Could result in a bad foot injury. Should be nailed down.

Manager responded on 8/13/2014:
Glad you had a great stay. Thanks for the heads up on the planking - easy fix on our next turnover. Glad you loved Oxford - we do too.

Reviewer Comments:
As a family of four with two teenage sons, the cottage & Oxford were wonderful for a week's holiday. We'd spent the first week in Washington DC which was amazing but busy. Oxford was the perfect contrast. Nothing which we had seen matched the town's actual beauty: marinas & harbours at every turn. The town may appear quiet initially but there's plenty to do if your aim is to potter & chill. The cottage also exceeded our expectation, perfectly sited to walk to restaurants, the market next door, bookshop or ice creamery.A truly fabulous vacation!

We really enjoyed our stay. Had some trouble accessing the property as there was no lock box to use the code provided but the office came and provided keys later in the evening.

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.

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.
