Peaceful spot with lovely home and inspiring view

We spent three nights and 3 days in this lovely home. The decor is unique with a collection of sea glasses animating every room, shelves, windows, tables. An amusing collection of books about sailing, the Chesapeake Bay, the Eastern Shore, fishing, cooking, and sea glass - of course.
The home is well laid out with a spacious living dining room with 3 sitting areas, a large, well equipped kitchen that comes with appliances of all sizes, cooking tools, a collection of spices, and various basic ingredients. Three lovely bedrooms. The master bedroom with a king and two twins + bathroom is in a separate area of the home with a small private patio. The remaining 2 queen bedrooms are off the living room and the two nice bathrooms are off the hallway leading to the living/dining room. Besides this pleasing lovely home with light blue and green furniture, the most stunning surprise is the view from the living room. One wall is all windows facing the Chester river and a door that leads to a peaceful deck and pier with the most stunning view of the river. Just charming, inspiring and breath taking!! The first night I could not sleep and I got up before sunrise just to be outside, listen to calm sound of the water and the birds. The moon at sunrise was the best way to start the day.
Let's not forget the well equipped boat house on the deck. Life vests of all sizes, 4 kayaks, one canoe, fishing poles, mattresses, folding chairs, crabbing cages are there for you!! If you can get up from the comfortable chairs on the deck or leave the tables on the deck or in the garden ... you can have fun with the water. A bird house is few paddles away, the water is calm and relaxing ... jelly fish are plentiful, though!
In the garage there is more for you .... bikes that can take you to town on a 10 miles windy, quiet road where you can stop and look at an old school from 1879, a small church from 1860, a renovated farm from the 18th century, nice woods and, of course the river.
We were two families with a total of 4 adults and 4 teenagers. Everyone had a great time. The kids slept in the master bedroom until late in the morning, then got up and did what pleased them: kayaking, biking, crabbing. There was no danger or stress. The adults loved the deck. We all had two wonderful dinners in the spacious kitchen. We did yoga outdoor and indoor, watched TV, read books and relaxed.
Chestertown is a gem, breakfast at the EverGrain, dinner at Brooks Tavern. Great time! We'll go back soon
