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!!

Modern clean house. Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in the home. Kitchen has everything you need. Wanda keeps the home very clean and is very friendly. Short walk to bring kayaks and canoe to new Wanona marina. Wonderful biking on flat terrain. Really enjoyed the skipjack tour with captain David Whitelock that Patty recommended. Tree frogs love the front door. If you are looking for a quiet family get away this is great!

Deal Island, MD is perfect for a short getaway with family!

  • 5 of 5

My sister in law, niece and daughter found the Deal Island home the right place for our weekend visit. The hosts provided games, cards, internet and comfortable furniture for our relaxing weekend. We especially loved the updated kitchen and screened in porch for eating our meals.

A excellent value in a bay setting

  • 5 of 5

As advertised, a place for those who want quiet, a chance to watch birds, take out canoe or kayak, fish or search for antiques. Well-appointed, modern facilities for our family of five (three children), there were no disappointments. The local general store and eatery, Arby's, was always available. We explored Little Deal Island by canoe. We took the recommendations of the owner and neighbors for shopping. Nearby (19 miles) Princess Anne offered supermarket, fish retailer, library, antiques, and the Teakle Mansion. Highly recommended!
