Lovely Cottage, Bay Views and Dazzling Sunsets

  • 4 of 5

Just over the Knapps Narrow Bridge, this was the perfect spot for our girls getaway. Light-filled and airy indoors, the house has plenty of cozy spots to get comfy in, including a reading nook upstairs, roomy kitchen, large dining room and plenty of couch space, all with beautiful views of the Bay. Bedrooms were soothing in pleasing colors with comfy beds and nice breezes at night. Outside we enjoyed the enclosed gazebo, picnic table, and spacious back yard where my dog had plenty of room to run. Out on the private dock, you can dangle your feet and watch spectacular sunsets. When the tide is right there is a small beach with some nice surprises, including beach glass and seashells.

I enjoyed it so much I stayed two extra days, and spotted wild turkeys, herons, Eagles and osprey while sitting out Bayside.

I come to Tilghman often for it's walkable community, country store, kayaking and friendly residents. Looking forward to renting this property again. Ask Kate for great places to eat, kayak or enjoy things "off the beaten path."

Great family vacation spot with unbeatable location and spectacular views!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at this lovely Tilghman Island waterfront home! The house was perfect for our family. It is clean, roomy and comfortable with spacious front and back yards, easy access to the bay for swimming, and a nice gazebo attached to the side deck that is wonderful to relax in and enjoy meals. Beds are comfortable; bathrooms are clean and functional. Ceiling fans and A/C ensured we were comfortable even on the hottest days. Grill worked well. We love being so close to the water. Our daughter, age 12, had fun swimming in the bay with her black lab. (We're not sure who enjoyed vacation more, us our our labrador!) The location is great for the sunsets, bay views, and seeing lots of birds and wildlife. This location is also very convenient. Right down the street within easy walking distance, is a great local restaurant, Two if By Sea. We enjoyed several meals there and enjoyed the food, the service, and the vibe. Very nice people who work there. The Island is perfect to explore by bike, and this house is in a great location for bike riding, as it is on a very safe, quiet street that makes it easy for kids of any age to enjoy riding their bikes. All in all, a great vacation in a beautiful location that was relaxing and fun. We would recommend this house to other renters, and are considering planning for a visit next summer as well.
