Enjoy some tranquil island living on the Chesapeake Bay in a beautiful Waterview beach house and is located in a small Waterview town. This fully and newly renovated, cape style, Bayview home is on 3 acres, where you can enjoy playing horseshoes, volleyball, crabfeasts, and cookouts on our gas BBQ grill.

Watch our commercial crabbers come in with their catch and buy crabs and oysters right off the boat at wholesale prices! Then have fun cooking them right in the backyard on our homemade steaming pot! Bring your crab nets as you walk knee- high and catch your own soft crabs. Fishing and crabbing is plentiful on the island. Bring your boat and do both,or you can arrange a trip on our local Fishing Charter Boats.( Boat ramp just minutes away.)

We have several seafood plants which offer fresh steamed crabs, fresh picked crab meat and softcrabs. That's if you would rather not cook them yourselves.

We are located in the best hunting and rockfish areas of North America. Also available duck and deer hunting properties. This Island Waterfront Community offers kayaking to the bird sanctuary. With binaculars you can see the Bald Eagles seahawks,Osprey, herons, swans, pelicans and other rare birds. Explore the shorelines and coves for indian artifacts, shells and sea glass.

If you would like to tour the waterways by boat, for fishing, "Hoopers Island Expeditions" would be the way to go! Adam will take you to the most beautiful fishing spots around!

If you would like to rent paddleboats , kayaks, bikes, or jetskis, Susan's Blackwater paddles and peddles would be the way to go! She is located near the famous "Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge," an outdoor lovers dream!

If you own your boat and looking for a place to store it, " PL Jones Boatyard "is only a minute from Bayview. They will be happy to rent you a slip for a week or weekend. There is also plenty of room to keep it in the yard at Bayview, then push it overboard at our free boat ramp a few minutes from the house.

Bike the island. Ride to Old Salty's for lunch, best known for their fresh seafood, homemade rolls and mile high meringe pies! The dining room has beautiful waterviews while eating!! In the back get to know the locals at the "boat shaped" bar. You can hear them talk about the catch of the day and their experiences on the boat.

. The roads are flat and scenic, enjoyable to ride or walk your dog. Take a swim on our public beach as you look for arrowheads, or drive 70 minutes to the famous Ocean City Boardwalk and beach. Spend the day swimming in the ocean and enjoy the shops, restaurants,mini golf amusement parks and fine foods they have to offer.

In my rental I have about 100 flyers/brochures of activities for every vacation experience! Drive 15 minutes to the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, drive around the refuge, stop and do the nature walks and bike trails. Bird watching is very popular here, where bald eagles thrive.

Stop in the visitor centers gift shop and information center see the stuffed wild animals on display. And look at the live Web Cam of eagles nesting their young.

The setting and solitude is exceptional, as you take in the tranquil views of the Chesapeake Bay. Drink your Am. coffee on the front porch, where in the evening you have the perfect 'open view' of the sunsets over the Bay! When it's time to retire in the evening curl up with a good book on our fully lit window seats. Spending the evening out?

Cambridge offers an array of dining choices, movie theaters, or the Hyatt Chesapeake for golfing or spa visits. Visit the quaint towns of St. Michaels,and Oxford. Our Bayview Home is the perfect relaxing family getaway, retreat,vacation or whatever the occasion hope to see you here for your vacation fun!!!


Thanks for all the little things to make our stay in this cute home enjoyable!

Everything was great! Had a wonderful time with our family. Carolyn 7-26-2013

Thank you for a nice stay. The crab pots kept us very busy. We are definitely

considering coming back in the fall to get the stripers! Pete & Maureen 7-16-13

THANKS!! We had a great time! The boys and I can't wait until July to do it all

over again! The crabbin was great, we did not fare as well fishing but got a few

hardheads, and rockfish. In july we hope to fish around the lighthouse. Thanks

for the use of the crab pots and nets. The Darby's June & July 2014

About Laura Johnson

My family and I love living here on the island we have raised our children here and now our grandchildren. We can not think of a better place to be in the world. We really enjoy the fishing,crabbing,kayaking,and biking the island. We mostly love catching the fish and crabs then cooking them up for a fresh seafood dinner!!

Laura Johnson purchased this House in 1998

Why Laura Johnson chose Fishing Creek

This was the home my husband was raised in. It was left to us , so we completely renovated it all new inside, and now rent it so others can enjoy our nice cozy home and see the way of life here as the watermen work on the bay and come in daily with their catches. What a great experience!!

What makes this House unique

Enjoy steaming your own blue claw crabs we get fresh daily off the boats at wholesale prices. Then cook them right in the backyard! In the fall you can buy oysters right off the boats. Then in the evening sit on the porch and watch the sun set over the Bay!

                                                                    Alice H.

We never expected so much and it was just great. This was our first VRBO experience and we already have another lined up in a nearby State, but the Bayview Home has set the standard for us and it will be hard to top it. Thanks for a wonderful time!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

The location was great easily accessible to the crabbing/fishing locations and 20 min drive to the kayaks/bikes rental place. The home was simply super - old house, clean, well maintained with great amenities made our stay pleasant and enjoyable. Kids had a blast with the swing and kiddy pool in the backyard. The best part of our vacation was the hospitality shown by Laura and John, the owners of the property who helped us with local sightseeing, preparing crabs and referring us to the kayak rentals . Thanks Laura and John. We had fun and will return next year - RR.

                                                                    Lovely family getaway

                                                                    Amy H.

The minute we walked in we were struck by all of the little touches showing how our hostess really went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The house is very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for family time. And Laura went out of her way to help us enjoy the beauty of Hoopers Island. We loved the wildlife refuge (so many beautiful birds), picking up sea glass along the edge of the water, roasting marshmallows, and the kids had a great time fishing. The house had everything we needed for fishing & crabbing. We also learned a lot about Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad. And, of course, we ate a lot of crab. Hooper's Island is a great place to get away from it all. It is so peaceful & idyllic. We'll never forget it.

The Bayview House is an easy 25 mile drive from the race course and in a breathtaking area. The house was very clean and comfortable and the air conditioning was also very much appreciated. Laura gave us great recommendations including Emily's Produce (I got delicious vegetables and fed the goats) and Old Salty's. Overall it was a fantastic weekend and I'm glad we chose to stay where we did.
