Why Joan Locastro chose Cambridge
The Cottage at Heron Cove sits on a point of land on Gary Creek once used as a lookout by Native Americans. Enjoy scenic views of a private nature preserve and a historical homestead dating back to the mid 1600's. From the porch you can see down to the Little Choptank River or up to the living history museum at Spocott Windmill A short seven miles drive into Cambridge finds one with a vast array of amenities to include golf, shops, museums, spas, fine dining, marinas, antiques, an airport, and just about anything else one would want on your vacation getaway. For your sightseeing pleasure you are approximately one and one half hours away from Ocean City and Assateague Island as well as 40 minutes from Easton and Oxford. A quick drive finds you at the Blackwater wildlife refuge; although, it is not uncommon to see eagles, geese, egrets, herons or the nesting osprey from your porch at "The Cottage". In spring and fall come and enjoy the cry of the loons as they rest on Gary Creek during their migration.

Had such a wonderful time at this beautiful home! The location is lovely and so peaceful! The home is immaculate and has everything you need at a home away from home! The Locastro’s are the friendliest and most helpful property owners we’ve ever encountered! Thanks so much for sharing this amazing refuge with us!
Our second visit and looking forward to more!
We just love staying here! Your cottage is so very well stocked with everything anyone could think of needing, right down to extra directors chairs for sitting on the dock. The condiments in your fridge were perfect for those silly things one doesn't think to bring from home. We were surprised that you even stocked spices and such in the pantry!
We found absolutely everything to be perfectly comfortable, welcoming and exactly what we would have in our home away from home. But what brings us back most often is the gorgeous scenery and the QUIET!!! Even on the lone rainy day and with our boat motor once again acting up, (thank you Sooo much for your patience and assistance!) our surroundings brought us peace, contentment and relaxation. As I said to a friend, staying here totally beats staring at sweaty, half naked bodies of the furred and unfurred variety Any Day! LOL!
Again, Thank You! Thank You!! THANK YOU!!!
We stayed at this lovely cottage in the first week of September. This place is great. Very clean and nicely decorated. You can find everything you need. My husband was fishing every day from the dock, and he was very successful. You can fully relax there.Bob (the owner) was very nice and very helpful. We had an amazing week and we will be back for sure. Thank you!!!
Slice of Heaven on Earth
The Locastro's cottage is truly a gift! The cottage, the grounds, the creek, and the entire surroundings demand nothing from anyone, instead, they are there to remind you just how lovely and simple life can be and that it is to be enjoyed. Thank you, Joan and Bob!
Exactly as advertised!
The cottage was lovely, with all kitchen appliances and staples you could possibly need for a vacation. The owners were at their residence next door when we arrived and were very willing to assist with any questions. The location is very quiet and very beautiful. We plan to return.
This beautifully situated property feels exactly like what a home away from home should--except it's better. The cottage is comfortable inside, and lacks for nothing. Outside you have a range of opportunities for simply sitting and enjoying the amazing views, or frolicking in the water or yard. The house sits in a relatively remote area so you have ample privacy, but is close enough to the restaurants and shops in town that a couple of trips in a day (15 mins each way) aren't cumbersome at all. The house is great for a simple retreat for one or two people--or for a small family. The owners are very lovely people--they responded to questions within a very short period of time and recommended places to visit or eat in the area. We can't wait to return.
