Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful house ,beautiful views. We enjoyed walking the nature trails at the Deal Island wildlife management area, and got some great pictures of Bald Eagles!

The absolute best part of Deal Island are the people. Treated us like we were old friends. Had a wonderful Friday night hanging out at Arby"s listening to great live music and talking with the locals. If you get a chance check out Mike's dancing -he's a joy!

Next time we plan on getting some fishing in.We had a great stay

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

A great vacation home! Thanks so much to Patti and Wanda for all they did to make our stay as wonderful as it was. The house is certainly named appropriately - we enjoyed the beautiful sunrises from the back window and the gorgeous sunsets from the front! And the water view is beautiful. In between our trips to softball games to watch my granddaughter play in the World Series in Salisbury, MD, we enjoyed crabbing and fishing, and made a few trips to the small beach nearby which we all loved. My husband enjoyed talking to the owners of Arby's and found that they are familiar with the area where we live. A great week and a very memorable vacation!!

Weekend Get-Away

We were looking for a place to stay for a long weekend that would allow us an opportunity to explore a part of Maryland we hadn't visited before. Sunrise Sunset Cottage was perfect!

Quiet getaway in a beautiful waterview home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this awesome home in the sleepy little fishing village on Deal Island! We had spectacular weather, ate lots of seafood and enjoyed the views from the deck every chance we got. The home is beautifully decorated and oh so cozy. Best part is being able to take our four legged 'daughter' Piper with us. She loved her evening walks around the harbor and trips to the Deal Island beach, which we often had to ourselves. Would highly recommend this great home for the perfect Eastern Shore getaway. We'll be back! :)
