Guestbook comments from the owner

It's been a very fun and relaxing holiday here and we've really, really enjoyed it. Your home is so well stocked and cozy and in such a beautiful spot. So quiet and peaceful! I will miss my tea on the dock or the porch every morning! We loved our time at your home.

Smiles on the Miles

  • 5 of 5

My wife and family members just returned from a relaxing week at the historic, and beautifully maintained, Cranford on Miles. The house itself is spacious and tastefully decorated. Of note, the kitchen is well equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, the living areas are more than ample and appointed with classic furnishings, the bedrooms are not only comfortable, but the master bedroom has a spacious deck overlooking the Miles River. Mature trees, a wraparound screened porch, a private dock and spacious lawns that roll down to the river add to the lure-as does charming shopping in nearby St. Michaels as well as the many activities available in the Chesapeake watershed. All in all, Cranford on Miles is an ideal choice for families seeking a waterfront vacation, or those in search of grace and tranquility in equal measure.

Historic and fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Every year, my husband and I plan a vacation for us, our adult children and their significant others. Two years ago: Outer Banks. Great. A year ago: Asheville. I didn't think it could get better. This place was better! The minute I walked into this house, I knew it was perfect for us. Two hours from home, so incredibly peaceful, a wonderful place for our family to gather. I loved the fully appointed kitchen; the kids spent every evening on the peaceful back porch; they gathered for the sunrise. The river! A really beautiful home with four great bedrooms and pet friendly! We'll be back!

Lovely Vacation Home in St. Michaels

  • 5 of 5

I am already planning our next trip to this amazing oasis in St Michaels. The house is beautifully appointed, with everything you need for a fantastic vacation. The water view is spectacular and relaxing, whether viewed from the large screen porch or one of the many balconies. The location is the best of both worlds, private but convenient to town. Highly recommended!!

Beauty and Peace by the River!

  • 5 of 5

Cranford on Miles is a great house in a great location. The main highlight of the house is the view of the Miles River from everywhere in the house. During the morning and evening, you can't beat the view the sunrise and sunset. The house is also located between St. Michaels, Easton and Oxford, all three locations have different things to offer and are within easy striking distance. Our kids loved the house and the grounds as well and everyone found great spots for reading when we weren't on the kayaks, fishing or just enjoying the view. John and Lisa were also responsive to our requests during the stay and made our visit easier. We hope to be back soon.
