July 4th Family of 30 Reunion
The property was perfect for our family of 30. The layout in the main house is wonderful as the hallway leading to the bedrooms from the living area has a door on it and you can't hear any of the late evening frolics. The screened porch between the house and pool was also perfect. And the pool was great. The other houses were also very accommodating. The location is very private and quiet and safe for everyone. We would highly recommend this vacation home.
I really like and am thankful for Gary's review b/c he gives thoughtful insights for future renters such as his comment about the door keeping the noise level down for those sleeping, great point! He also told me of a few needed fixes that we could address asap. I really appreciated that!! We are eager to do what we can so our renters can relax & enjoy! From one rental owner to another, thank you, Gary! Hope all of our future renters are like you!
Unforgettable Wedding Weekend with Family
We had our wedding here, and it was perfect! Both sides of our family stayed here with us for the weekend and worked together to help with food prep. Many hands make light work. No one was too busy to relax and enjoy the bay. The adults explored the ins and outs of the waterways via kayak. The kids loved the pool, and everyone loved the hot tub. Many of us also took bike rides down the long romantic lane. Everyone was very impressed with our venue, including us. The bay views are even better in person; pictures really don't do it justice.
And to top it off, Marie and Perce were beyond amazing. Sweet, attentive(the good kind), and helpful. We seriously couldn't have asked for better hosts. When Marie found out we wanted to get married there, right off the bat, she sent me vendor lists from previous brides. That was such a relief as I live in Nevada and wouldn't be physically in the area until the wedding. My work was almost done for me! She also kept good communication and responded quickly to my questions. When our weekend came, Perce drove from another state just to be close by in case anything went wrong during our wedding, which nothing did. He also went out of his way and made an unexpected purchase to make sure my family was comfortable with the air conditioning.
From a separate and very different rental experience, we learned the hard way that negligent hosts can ruin even the most beautiful rental. Marie and Perce, Your hospitality is invaluable. Many wonderful memories are created on your beautiful property! Thank you so much!
Kelly was so appreciative of everything we did to help make it a special day for her in the celebration of their love & commitment to each other in marriage! It makes our rental biz fun for us when renters realize And appreciate that we do the best we can for them, to help ensure they have a great time at RCR!! Thank you, Kelly!
What a great place to spend time with family. Enough space to have everyone together and to have privacy. So much to see and do. We never left the site except to go to Blackwater Refuge. Perfect way to relax and have fun with family. It's a boomerang place for a vacation. You just keep returning.
It has been such a pleasure to have this family rent RCR! Wish all of our renters were like them!! They're just happy people! And I'm so thankful that they're returning for a 3rd stay! Yay! thank you, Terry & Altschuler Family!!
A very nice place to hold a large group gathering
My sincere apologies to the owners for my taking more than 7 months to write this review. We were a group of 20+ adults and 10+ children (ages 2 to 17). We stayed in all of the buildings on the property including the RV. The friendly owners and their representatives were easy to work with throughout the booking process. They also kindly accommodated us when we asked to visit a month or so prior to the rental to chart out where our various group members might all sleep.
While not a brand-new property, it certainly was inviting and comfortable. Access to the water right from the property was a great benefit. We rented kayaks, etc. from Blackwater Outfitters and kept them on property. The pool was clean, the kitchens were well appointed, and we used both of the big ones in the main house and in the fun house to make most of our meals over our week's stay. We valued the large amount of refrigerator space across all of the buildings. The bathrooms were clean, beds were pretty comfortable, and the grounds were well kept. The screened-in porch got a lot of use and was a great place for us all to hang out any time of day or night. We had one super-amazing sunset, which we enjoyed viewing from the deck as well as from kayaks out on the bay.
The area is nice for exploring which we did by bike and by car. We also enjoyed a nice meal and good beer in Cambridge, MD at Jimmie & Sook’s and RAR Brewing, respectively. The owners also connected us to a local historian who came over and gave us a presentation on the history of the area which was quite interesting.
In terms of dings, just a few - The pool lights did not work so it was a bit dark at night, but we still happily swam. We also found some other outdoor lights that were not working. Finally, there was a small wasp's nest in the porch. It did not appear to be active with any wasps, so it didn’t cause us any problems. The owners were responsive to each of these issues when we brought it to their attention and were genuinely focused on us having a great experience at their property. Finally, the RV ended up being a disappointment to the family of 4 in our party who stayed in it. They felt it was better set up for two people maximum. Nonetheless, I recommend this property to anyone wanting a nice, quiet, comfortable and beautiful spot on the Chesapeake Bay to host a large gathering. If VRBO would allow me to give it 4.5 stars instead of only 4, I would.
Great Family Reunion - Strongly recommend RCR
Great place for a family reunion. The property is located in a choice spot and well maintained. Pleasant dealings with the landlord. My family had a great time and I would highly recommend it to anyone.,
Beatiful Property TONS of space
This property was beautiful with tons of space for our extended family. Our only complaint would be that we wished we could have stayed longer!! Thank you Marie!!
