Top Notch, Excellent Price, Definitely Coming Back

Accurate description for amenities, house, location, beach, fossils. Clean and well maintained. Cabin has cutlery, pots, dishes, microwave, silverware, coffee maker, a full array of cooking utensils, trash bags and cleaning supplies. Walmart and Giant grocery are 5 miles from cabin and on the way. T-Mobile service works great from inside house. Cabin has great digital TV service for music, TV, movies/DVD's, NetFlix, and more. I thought it was smaller based on the picture, but it is large and roomy with plenty of table and floor space. Beds are super comfortable. Cabin is very comfortable in warm or cold weather. The view is incredible. Highly recommend this cabin over any hotel on the beach.

We jogged on the 2 mile beach and beyond. Found 2 shark teeth and a fossilized crab claw. Lots of beautiful shells. **Bring an extra pair of shoes and extra towels. Things do not dry quickly. And there is no dryer.** Hiking trails are within walking distance. Kyaking and boating is easily accessible. Nice quiet neighborhood. We really enjoyed the antiques in the cabin, especially the book collection and various antique displays. Very relaxing, nostalgic, magical. You can't help but forget your stress and take in the grandeur of being so close to nature. We can't wait to return. The home owners are wonderful people.

I wish every vacation house I rented had an owner as gracious and kind as Ginny.
Ginny has created a wonderful environment in a beautiful location.
Very comfy house with many specialtouches and a beautiful view. Plus a great kitchen (with spices, oil, and good knives!)
And Ginny was so helpful and attentive during the booking process.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The view is beautiful and the location is great. At bottom of cliff there is two miles of empty white sand beach, filled with big and colorful butterflies. The place (and cabin as well) unique.Hoping to return some day in future. Thank you.

Beautiful view of the Chesapeake

Stone's throw is a fantastic gem! Everything is well maintained and very comfortable. The cabin is so well decorated. For the first day, my three year old wanted to show me something cool about every half hour as she found the jar of shark teeth, the spinning wheel, and other very cool objects used to decorate.

The owners are very helpful when answering questions about the local area and the cabin. Responses to emailed question were always prompt and helpful.

The view is fantastic. It is wonderful to be sipping morning coffee, looking out at the bay, and watch birds dive down at the water and come up with fish. We even saw a few bald eagles.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. Our husbands took us away for a long (Valentine’s) weekend. The weather was cold the first day but cleared up for the next two. We spent a lot of our time sitting on the porch looking out at the bay. What a breathtaking view!
We also had fun searching the beaches for shark’s teeth.
I was an awesome time with family and we plan to come back when the weather is warmer.
