Peaceful, family retreat

  • 5 of 5

I can only agree with all the other reviews....The Sanders family are extremely welcoming and accommodating. Harry met us at the house and showed us around the property, complete with a wonderful welcome basket. A home away from home and plenty of room for 3 adults and 2 teenagers. Great place to get away and relax - even the teenagers agreed! Exquisite sunsets. Soooo peaceful. We spent an afternoon on the beach at Terrapin Park (shame about the jelly fish), and visited St. Michaels (well worth the visit). We all wished we could have stayed longer than our 4 days and would definitely consider returning here.

Wonderful, relaxing stay on the Chesapeake

  • 5 of 5

Well, we had the best (but too short) getaway at this spectacular vacation home. I can't say enough. The house is well equipped and easily large enough for our four adults and one child. Beautiful sunsets. Beautiful walks. Property was clean and very well maintained. The Sanders are great hosts and met us on site to explain things to us. Pretty sure we will return again in the future.

Comfortable, enticing home on water

  • 5 of 5

The home is ideal for a family. It brings out the best in us, well provided for activities on water (canoeing/kayaking) and games indoors. We want to spend time together, cooking great meals in best equipped kitchen I've seen and talking and laughing and admiring the spectacular view . Most comfortably furnished and clean. We have stayed twice and keep talking about returning. Harry and Scott are very agreeable and accommodating. We highly recommend. Genie Henson

Simply Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The view is even better than the pictures and the home is indeed comfortable, quiet, spotless and lovingly decorated. The notebook with local information was packed with ideas for things to do when we weren't relaxing and enjoying the view. We have rented from other people in the past and NONE of them were as friendly, gracious and helpful as the Sanders family. They even arranged for us to have nice weather. Probably the best thing to say is that as we were driving home, we started talking about coming back next year.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

"We were very pleased with our entire stay. The owner met us when we arrived and showed us where things were and told us a little about the area. The house was absolutely and most definitely exceeded our expectations. My son-in-law and grandson spent a great deal of time fishing and crabbing right off the pier that was on the property. We took a trip to the National Aquarium in Baltimore and to Pirate Adventures in Anapolis. I would highly recommend this home to others. We certainly hope to stay here again. The owners are amazing to work with!!"

This professionally manicured course is a challenge for all levels of golfers. Golfers are encouraged to stop in and play or browse the pro shop’s offerings.


Spread out over 255 gently rolling acres, the par 72 Championship Course and the par 32 Executive Course are challenging tests for any golfer. Whether you want to test your nerve from the 'tips' of the Championship Course (at almost 7,100 yards), or you are just out for a casual round on our 2,182 yard 9-hole, Executive Course, Hog Neck has the golf to suit your game!
