Gorgeous setting, beautiful home and pool.
This home is beautiful and the setting is spectacular. Every day of our visit was filled with sightings of bald eagles, great blue heron, hummingbirds and more. There are many places nearby to go for day trips and/or lunch at the many charming fishing towns nearby. Some days were spent just lounging by the pool. The two screened porches provided the perfect place for eating meals or lounging with family. We loved this place and were genuinely sad to leave.
It was a pleasure meeting your family. Glad you also enjoyed the eagle sightings in addition to all the other activities during the week. We appreciate knowing your family had such wonderful time (and your dog too)!
Splendid hideaway right on the water in Maryland Eastshore
We spent a fantastic week at this hidden gem. Great location at the water, large and very clean pool, two great screened in patios to spend the day if you are not enjoying yourself even more with the canoes or the trails where you can cycle or walk. The kitchen has all the appliances you would ever need. The AC was very welcome as it can be hot and humid in mid-August. Great with two golden retrievers as there is a lot of space in and around the house, and good dog walking up and down the long drive way or around the field. Nice attached office if you need to stay in touch a bit with home or work - but hopefully not too much as not too miss out on the many relaxing features of this place.
As you said upon leaving, that after spending a week here, your family was able to slow down and appreciate our pace. That's what vacations are all about! Thank you for your kind review and it was a pleasure having you here.
Gorgeous peaceful farm house.
The house is beautiful. Two gorgeous screened in porches from which to watch the river. Lovely pool and an outside shower which was perfection itself! A tranquil hideaway.
We enjoyed seeing you ride bikes or walk the property with Teddy, your cocker spaniel. Glad you could fully appreciate our Farm and the area. Thank you for your review. It was lovely meeting your family.
Beautiful home and property!!! Loved screen porches and pool! Beds were very comfy !
Had a very hot week and the ac was wonderful. Played lawn games and went the docks for great seafood dinner! We also went to the casino and had a great time!
Glad your family were successful in our waters as well as the casino at Harrington! Come again next summer.
My wife and I could not have enjoyed it more! We are planning to return.
I was not originally planning on joining my wife because of my work. However after one day there my wife called and said "I must join her as this is just beautiful!" So, I came and was so glad I did. The property was exactly as advertised. But I told the owner the pictures of the property simply did not do it justice and I recommended that a professional photographer be utilized! The home, the land including the pool were simply beautiful. The only part of of our vacation which was nicer were the owners themselves. We have become friends and have invited them to visit us. Need we say more!!! Anne and Phil
It was wonderful meeting both of you and we hope to see more of you. So nice to have folks who truly appreciate just how special our property is!
Great farm house on a beautiful piece of of property.
The week we were visiting it was hot and we spent hours at the pool. One of the most relaxing vacations we ever took. Easy commute to Oxford and St. Michaels for shopping and dinner. Kayaking was also great, many areas were available to stop and explore. Thank you Leslie, Thom, and Molly for allowing us to enjoy such a beautiful place.
So glad your family enjoyed some down time together. Our pool has always been a plus on hot days. Touring the area is easy for outings and happy you explored the towns nearby.
