About the property

5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

'MisBayhaven' is located on 4 pristine waterfront acres 2 miles from the center of St. Michaels, Maryland. Situated on a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay (the largest inland body of water in the United States). The property offers beautiful views, a relaxing park-like atmosphere in a truly natural environment.

'MisBayhaven' is a spacious 5000 square foot (including the screened-in porch) country cape cod situated on the east bank of the Harris Creek (1/2 mile wide) making for easy water access and beautiful sunsets. It has central air-conditioning, two master bedroom suites with king size beds, 4 full bathrooms and three additional large bedrooms. Living is centered around the spectacular 500 sq. ft. screened-in porch with mahogany wood floors and ceilings with gorgeous views to the water.

'MisBayhaven' also offers a family room with fireplace, a large kitchen and a t.v/game room. Amenities include a pool, hot tub, dock, outdoor tree swing, hammock, ping pong table and two laundry facilities for convenience. The house has just completed a full renovation including a new pool, landscaping and hardwood floors.

Activities include fishing and crabbing directly from the dock, countryside biking, tubing, boating, ping pong, badmitton, relaxation by the pool or in the hot tub, reading under the trees or swinging in our tree suspended hammock or swing. Evening activities including star gazing and sunset watching are memorable as a clear night will reveal the Milky Way Galaxy directly above.

Due to its temperate climate, the Eastern Shore enjoys a long outdoor season from March through November. The summer is most popular for its celebration of crab feasts and Plein-Air art festivals. The fall is famous for the massive influx of migratory waterfowl and associated festivals. Situated in a quaint historical locale and steeped in Eastern Shore culture, St. Michaels offers a beautiful contrast to cities such as Washington and Baltimore both of which make for a great day trip.

St. Michaels was voted one of the top 10 'Most Romantic Get-Aways' by Coastal Living Magazine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Debbie, we loved your beautiful home! I'm not sure if I told you, but we have been renting vacation homes for a very long time. I guess you'd say we are professional renters by this time in our lives! You wouldn't believe how often a rental for 10 or 12 people has seating for 8! And kitchen equipment...we even carry our own box of certain things. You can tell you use your home and love it. And know what families need while enjoying your home. The kitchen is so well equipped, and day to day supplies are so much appreciated. As I said, we never know what to expect, so we come prepared. Of course the setting is amazing, and though it was hot ( not as bad as last year when we were in Annapolis - 106!), we were able to utilize the screened porch, which we love. We were a bit concerned about the fridge. It was broken, not cooling, but shelving, and we were careful about further breakage. And the 2 metal stools at the island are a bit precarious. We put them aside. I always say to our gang, " not on our watch". But these things are minor, just wanted you to be aware. The bedrooms are fabulous, and so much space to be together and hang out, which is our primary purpose. And your suggestions for dining out were super. We hit Ava's, the Big Pickle, Harbor Lights, the schooner ( I think that's it ), and the kids did Gina's Cantina. All great!!! Thank you very much for providing our family with a perfect summer setting. Of course, I imagine it's perfect whatever the season!

This property is all it's cracked up to be---and more. Amazingly well stocked and everything in great shape. We had Thanksgiving Dinner for 8, and it was perfect. We'll try to get back!

Reunion of old college pals

  • 5 of 5

Nine women who met in college gathered at this gorgeous house to re-connect after many years. The weather and the house were perfect...although it was early October, it felt like summer and we wished the pool had still been open. As a result of summer weather, we barely used the spacious living, dining and TV room as we stayed on the decks/porch/dock the whole time. We ate in both nights and the kitchen had everything one could need.

We remained baffled with some of the technology: wifi and stereo system. A little wireless speaker could have solved that problem as we all had music on our phones/ipads.

The bedroom arrangement turned out a little troubling as we settled in and learned that some of the gals needed more separate rooms for various reasons and the girls assigned to the kids bunk room found those beds not totally comfortable. As such, one guest ended up in the laundry room on the trundle bed which was comfy but not as luxurious as the other rooms. We could not find any extra sheets for that bed either. She was a sport and didn't complain.

Two of us used a couple of the bikes for a great ride. The other two needed their tires inflated and we couldn't find a pump. Deb, the owner is amazingly responsive but we didn't connect with her in time to solve that problem.

The house is very close to St. Michael's but away from any congestion and we just loved it.

Great house, beautiful view, kids loved the pool. Close to St Michaels shopping, restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. We had two grandparents, children and spouses and 4 grandchildren. The house has two living rooms so the kids could be watching a movie while the adults enjoyed adult beverages and the view. The kitchen was very well equipped ,every possible pot, pan skillet etc you could want. The pool was perfect for the grandchildren and adults. The shallow end allowed the littlest ones to stand wearing swimmers and the older ones could dive for dropped objects. We rented a boat which we just tied up to the dock. All in all, a wonderful home and a wonderful vacation.

Best time ever! What a lovely home and beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting through VRBO and we were not disappointed. Our family had such a great time. The home was perfect with plenty of room for all. It was comfortable and really clean, with everything we could possible need, including a beautiful view of the water. You can definitely tell the property is well maintained. We took advantage of the pool during the hot days and hot tub in the evening. The screened in patio was perfect for dinner after grilling and there is a large comfortable seating area where we enjoyed a glass of wine. Getting up in the morning we sit by the water with our coffee which was very quiet and peaceful. The house was just a few minutes outside of St. Michaels which made it so easy to try out the many restaurants. There is great shopping in town and would definitely recommend Rise Up for a specialty coffee. We revisited Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge where we had fun biking and kayaking. This is such a great area to take the family to on vacation because there is so much to enjoy! We'll definitely be back.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We were in st Michaels for a weekend getaway with friends. The house was amazing, well appointed and much bigger than it appeared in the pictures. The pool was open, but too chilly to go in, but the hot tub was perfect! Communication with owner was prompt and she was helpful with things to do in the area. Also lots of information in the house. Would love to return with our family. Thank you for sharing your home!
