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.

Beautiful spot on the water!

  • 5 of 5

This home is so charming. We stayed here in May celebrating my mom's 70th at the Inn at Perry Cabin (right down the road). Waking up to the sun rising over the water was the highlight. The house is well equipped and is in a great location. Close to town, shopping and restaurants.

Clean and well-appointed comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this property. Lisa and John are gracious and very responsive. The house is clean and has everything you need for cooking. The beds are comfortable and the house has nice zoned temperature control, and we love the fireplace! This trip included 2 families (2 couples with 5 children ranging in age from 5-14 and two medium-sized dogs.) We had plenty of room to spread out and to eat at the dining table, etc. We look forward to returning sometime! Hopefully in the summer so we can take advantage of all the other fun things this property offers.

Beautiful property and view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a review I meant to submit 2 years ago - it didn't go through correctly which I realized as I eagerly booked our next stay at this wonderful spot. Looking forward to it!

Here is the review from our last stay: "We had 6 adults and 2 kids sleep very comfortably in this beautiful property. The views are just incredible, the kitchen was very well-stocked with supplies (we cook a lot) and there were two comfortable sitting areas to read and relax (one with a fireplace.) We had a great 4 days there for our family get away and hope to return again! Lisa was wonderful to work with and very responsive. The Chesapeake Maritime Museum is well worth a visit!"

Charming and Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I have spent 3 days in this waterfront house at the beginning of September. The house has beautiful and tranquil view of the water from every room. the view of sunrise and sunset over the bay is really breath-taking. The house was decorated in tasteful way: charming and relaxing. It's exactly what we are looking for a vacation home. We had a great time. Crab is in the season at the time and we caught two dozen of crabs from the dock in the backyard, it was really fun. The owner (Lisa) is very accommodating. She had provided a lot of details ahead of time, and made herself available when we have questions. I'd love to go back there again with my family.

Exceeded our expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Cranford on Miles far exceeded our expectations. The description on VRBO was very accurate from the gourmet kitchen to the "every room with a water view". The house is perfectly located to St. Michael's town (2 miles) and all the comforts of home (Easton). We found ourselves wanting to spend more time at the home than in town - so that is exactly what we did! The homeowners could not be more accommodating, responsive and an overall joy to work with. We are now thinking this could be our new annual family vacation spot. All that read this...sit back, relax, and enjoy!
