About Dawn Lednum

A 4th generation native to the Eatern Shore. I grew up here and never left...I own Chesapeake Bay Real Estate Plus,LLC in St.Michaels.

Dawn Lednum purchased this house in 2005

Why Dawn Lednum chose Maryland

I looked for years for the perfect spot.I grew up in Claiborne and always wanted a house on Eastern Bay. This property had it all...Big views,cove views,protected shoreline,beach,sunsets and a stone jetty to fish on any time the mood hit. It was large enough to build our vacation rental, 2 piers and a swimming pool for all.

What makes this house unique

We custom built the house to take advantage of the amazing views of Eastern Bay.Each bedroom walks out on the porches.

We are 5 minutes to St.Michaels and less than 2 hours to Ocean City, Baltimore, Washington DC and BWI Airport.

The property and the view of the bay was amazing.

  • 5 of 5

The house was claen and well kept. The view from the all the porches was amazing and very conforting. The owners were alwlays there to help with whatever we needed. The pool was great and it was nice to have the canoes and kayaks for our use. The sunsuets were great. So Endless Sunsets is worth renting for a time of rest and reflection. . St'Michael's is a quaint little town to visit. .Also the best part for our group coming from Vienna, Va. It only takes 2 hours on a good day to get to Endless Sunsets. .

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Spacious house for a get-together of 7. The view of the bay from multiple porches amazing! We enjoyed the pool surrounded by trees and gardens. Close proximity to the quaint town of St. Michael's was a plus. Would recommend for a group or family.

Family vacation at the Claiborne, MD house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation on the bay in Claiborne, MD. The house was not only beautiful and clean, it supplied everything one could possibly want, such as a fully stocked kitchen, games and towels and linens as well.

The children so enjoyed the in ground pool and we all had fun using the kayaks. The sunsets and views of the bay were amazing, not to mention we were steps from our own little beach.

Lots of good restaurants and shops in St. Michael's provided our evening entertainment as well as the Maritime Museum and Lighthouse. We made lots of good family memories on this vacation!

Something for everyone; sunset for all.

  • 5 of 5

Each person in our group - from age 6 to 66 - found something special in the Claiborne house experience. And we shared an awe of the sunsets. Inside, the kitchen is extremely well stocked, beds and baths clean and comfortable. Outside, even a cloudy day was perfect for beach combing and bird watching (saw an eagle twice!). We'll just have to return when it is a bit warmer to be tempted into the boats...

Best Location for Sunsets, Beach, and Open Water

  • 5 of 5

We're beach people and, if you go to St Michaels, you know there are creeks and rivers a-plenty, but not much open water, much less beach. This property has both. It was the perfect location for our family of five (with young children). The house was clean and comfortable with plenty of room for everyone - and not far from town where there are restaurants, shops, and the Maritime Museum. Back at the house, we enjoyed swimming in the pool, going on the kayaks, playing at the beach, collecting sea glass, chasing fireflies, and having meals out on the deck with beautiful water views. Dawn, Mimi, and their family were so accommodating and they really brought our Eastern Shore vacation to life.
