Both Susan and I grew up in families that took 'family vacations.' We wanted our kids and grandkids to have the same kind of vacation but with 22 of us we could not afford the resorts. We found and bought this old 2-bedroom farmhouse on a SPECTACULAR piece of land, rebuilt it to fit our purposes and have been able to enjoy watching the grandkids become very close with each other even though they live from NJ to SC. Our long term renters have enjoyed Cherry Point as much have we so much so that last year one family, during their regular week had a waterfront marriage ceremony for their daughter and had so many guests staying in Cambridge that the guests got a convention discount.
We sail; Cruising the Chesapeake is the bible of the Chesapeake sailer and they said that Cherry Point is one of the finest anchorages on the Chesapeake. I learned that Cherry Point was for sale and bought it the day before the great-grandson of a previous owner arrived from Chicago to purchase it.
Family tennis tournaments, 3 generation street hockey games on the tennis court, frizbee golf, using the metal-detector down where McKeel's dock was used to unload materials taken from captured British ships, searching for indian artifacts, enjoying the Blackwater National Wildlife Sanctuary, etc.
