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.

A Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
What a nice escape this was for our family! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this nicely maintained cabin. The view was amazing and the surroundings were quite peaceful. The description of the place is spot on and I was impressed with the overall cleanliness and comfort of the home. We enjoyed walking on the beach, playing in the water, hiking on the trails, and playing lots of cards and board games at night. I would definitely come back and highly recommend a visit to Stone's Throw if you are looking for a restful and relaxing vacation at a reasonable price.

Top Notch, Excellent Price, Definitely Coming Back

  • 5 of 5
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.

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

Magical

  • 5 of 5
My family was lucky enough to get to spend a weekend at this Magical Cabin. The cabin is so naturally charming and cozy. We felt at home immediately. The views of the Bay are remarkable and unlike any other. Our children started to plan our next stay at Stones Throw on our first night. We found many sharks teeth and relics while walking along beach. The cabin itself is like a museum for treasures that have been found. I truly cannot say enough about how special this place is. We hope to get the chance to stay again soon. The owners make you feel so welcome and are so helpful with information regarding surrounding areas. It was definitely a weekend that we will cherish forever.
