Why Tom Lang chose Reedville
We found an older beachhouse on a beautiful bayfront piece of property in a rural location only a couple of hours from our primary home. Some imagination and renovations brought the house back to life as a great gathering spot for family and friends.
What makes this House unique
A typical summer week is spent boating, fishing, sailing, roasting marshmallows, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, playing volleyball and bocce, birdwatching, crabbing --all without leaving the property! Throw in some golf, visits to nearby wineries, museums, and farmers markets, and you have a perfect recipe for a great vacation!!

The property was amazing inside as well as out!
We found the home to be beautiful, spotless, and well maintained.
Basic supplies - water, paper products, propane - in ample supply.
When we encountered a small problem with entry code, Mr. Lang responded immediately.
The grounds are, in my opinion, the most amazing part of this rental property! Large, beautifully maintained, an area of sandy beach for swimming and sand castle construction!
I personally enjoyed sitting by waters edge in the morning watching the sunrise.
The little ones especially enjoyed the sandy beach and swing/ slide set.
The first floor bedroom was perfect for our handicapped family member.
We did charter a nearby fishing boat one day of our stay, and hauled in an impressive catch providing that evenings meal!
A few trips into the quaint fishing town of Reedville - especially for an ice cream at Chitterchats - was enjoyed by both young and old! But, for the most part, the family enjoyed our time together in the quiet beauty of the immediate surroundings.
A small "catastrophe" occurred on our final day (a lost car key), and Mr. Lang did his best to be accommodating to our predicament.
I would absolutely recommend this property, especially if you need peace and beauty rather than hectic for your vacation!
Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit, and hope to have you back again soon!
We were a group of 12 who came to enjoy the Chesapeake shore. Tom promises to return emails very quickly and we learnt to believe it - he really did! The house is terrific with lots of space. We always felt we had elbow room and the cottage above the garage is a big bonus. Even in April, we swam, kayaked, and rode bikes using the house equipment. The games room was a big hit with our teenagers with one night dedicated to a pink pong and foosball tournament. Equipment is serviceable. The kitchen had plenty of utensils and cutlery for our group and the dishwasher fit one meal's worth effectively. We went on a cruise with Captain Billy (Capt. Billy Charters) and we heartily recommend him - great trip, he was not in a rush, and a fount of information. The bedrooms were spacious, decently furnished and it was great not to have to bring everything with us. All in all we had a great time and would recommend it to you too. Oh, and who can turn down the opportunity to sit in a beach chair and watch a pair of nesting osprey including a chick? Amazing! Note: others have mentioned the "isolation". And none of our group could get consistent cell phone connection; however, the internet connection is excellent. Nearest store is several miles away. For us, being far from others was a plus but if you have to have noise and hubbub, this might not be your cup of tea.....
Glad you all had a great time and enjoyed the house and property. Hope to have you back soon!
We loved this home!
Our family had such a lovely time at this beautiful and fun filled home. There was plenty to do on the rainy days and the sunny days were stunning with our own little private beach and beautiful water. Wonderful host who seems to have thought of everything for a family get away.
Property is beautiful, right on Chesapeake Bay! Great location to enjoy Reedville and local attractions. House was clean and in good order. Well equipped kitchen. Bathrooms and bedrooms were nice; beds are comfortable. I would definitely rent this property again.
Lovely house, attractive location!
The house is spacious and accommodating, with all the amenities we would want. The waterfront location is attractive and tranquil. We have seen great wildlife from the back porch including bald eagles, osprey and more. Sunrises over the bay, as well as moon rise in the evening, can be an added plus. The owner is responsive and communication is excellent.
We will plan to visit again!
Just gets better every year!
This beautiful house has hosted a group of girlfriends and their kids over the past 8 years, so it really feels like home to us. It is spacious for everyone to have their space and yet the common areas are perfect for long conversations and catching up over great meals and wine. The bay offers easy access to swimming and water play and the sleepy town of Fleeton offers great biking and runs. Fresh seafood right down the road is a must. The owners have updated the house over the years and maintained it well, so it feels fresh every time we visit. We’ll continue to come back year over year as long as the Langs will let us!
