A perfect Family Retreat!
Gorgeous wraparound porches include a screened outdoor eating area overlooking the pool. The compound was designed as an owners' dream, and includes a pool, ample decks for entertainment, a gorgeous beach, private natural setting, and walkways to the adjacent marsh. Towering loblolly pines, aromatic cedars, and marsh grasses dot the landscape. There is a rustic tidal pond next to the house providing rest for swans, ducks, & geese. The dock stretches 200 feet into the river with 3 berths for boats & lounge chair for your enjoyment. Wildlife abounds; you may find yourself crabbing and fishing all day. Yes, our crabbing is excellent!
The unique, secluded neighborhood consists of a single, mile-long road on its own peninsula with Dorchester's finest homes, stretching far into the Little Choptank River. The quiet street invites scenic bike rides or long walks to watch the sunsets.
A local country store, restaurant and boat ramp is 3 minutes away and the Chesapeake Bay, with its fishing, cruising, and endless sunsets, is out your window.
The town of Cambridge is ten minutes away, with a pre-civil war, Victorian inspired downtown, and countless restaurants and shops. It’s not much further to visit the Maryland towns of Oxford, Easton, or Saint Michael's to walk the streets, take in the restaurants, or visit art shops and galleries.
On the property, relax! Go no further than the shoreline to find great swimming, crabbing, fishing, sunning, or boating. The sandy beaches are a luxury all year long, and the heated pool provides for a warm swim during colder days and nights. Endless porches and a stone fire pit is the centerpiece for many nighttime get-togethers.
In the neighborhood, bike or walk down the neighborhood's 'private' peninsula and enjoy marvelous sunrises and sunsets among the finest of Maryland's summer and weekend retreats.
Sports both on water and land.
Fishing Creek provides wide, almost endless passages for quiet kayaking, fishing, or pleasure boating. The waterskiing is excellent. The other side of the peninsula faces the Chesapeake from Madison Bay and provides an open door to sailing or to the many top fishing spots.
In town, there are boats to rent for a sail on the Choptank. Bike tours from all over the world flock to the eastern shore because it is flat, the roads are good quality, the traffic is light, and the sights are endless. Blackwater Refuge offers world-class nature views, and you can also bike in Easton, Saint Michaels, and Oxford, and there are many bike tour maps available to the visitor.
There are two fantastic golf links nearby. The River Marsh course at the Hyatt Chesapeake is renowned. Hog Neck (18 miles) has a four-star rating from Golf Magazine. There are three additional courses between nine and 19 miles away.
