Our second (and possibly last) time staying at this property

  • 2 of 5

We had such a great time last year at this property and we could not wait to return. When we arrived this year, we were met with some disappointment. We arrived at the appropriate check-in time to find the cleaning lady (who was very nice) only half done with the house. We stayed out of her way and told her to take her time. She explained that the people who stayed there just prior to us had made a huge mess and had caused damage that she had to clean up and document. She told us stories of underwear on the floor, food exploded in the fridge, etc. I definitely think that she felt rushed because when she left she left a bunch of sheets in the dryer, a bunch of trash in the compactor and the bathrooms were less than spotless. When my kids ran outside to use the hammock (something they loved from last year) they found it to be damaged. There was a huge hole in it and it could not be used. We reached out to Jackie and her initial response was that she could not be responsible for damage to the property caused by other renters. REALLY! When I wrote back to her and explained that this was an unacceptable response, she finally agreed to order a new hammock. It was delivered on the very last day. My husband installed it and my kids were able to use it for a few hours. The house is beautiful and ideally located...but the furnishings are definitely becoming worn and other renters certainly do not care for the house the way we have. There were also various toys, socks and clothes left behind by other renters. My kids found these items throughout the house. Many of the lightbulbs were burned out and not replaced and the outside trash bins were completely full and overflowing when we arrived. When I reached out to Jackie regarding the trash situation (as it was the same for us last year) she explained that the trash pick up was once a week on Tuesday and that there was nothing she could do to change that. Once again, when I asserted myself she made arrangements for a special pick up and had both outside bins emptied on Monday instead. Last year we recalled more paper products available to us. Had we known that we could not rely on the house being stocked with toilet paper we certainly would have brought enough. Jackie answered me that the house is equipped only with one roll per bathroom and no more. Strange. For $$, house should be better maintained and there should be more time between renter departures and arrivals so whole property can be inspected.

The perfect waterfront weekend get away!

  • 5 of 5

We shared a fantastic weekend with lifelong friends that came in from all corners of the country. The house exceeded our expectations in every way. A veteran of many VRBO experiences, the Snug Cove was by far our best experience. St Michaels is a quaint maritime time town where crab cakes and a cold beer are a must. We also took a private sail on the Selina II out of St Michaels. Sunset on the water cannot be beat! We look forward to our next booking at Snug Cove...

Wonderful, relaxing vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our girls' getaway! The house is huge with a gorgeous view of the water. It is private and quiet yet close to St. Michael. We enjoyed the hot tub on the screened in porch and the kayaks. Each bedroom had its own bathroom, which was great for all of us! The house is clean, spacious, and well furnished. The owner provided outstanding customer service. I would highly recommend this home for your vacation!

A beautiful property. A fun three days.

  • 5 of 5

My sisters, our husbands and our mother had a wonderful time at Snug Cove last weekend. The house and property were beautiful and interior and furnishings were top notch. We particularly enjoyed the screened porch. We loved the fact that there were four bedrooms each with a private bath and the kitchen had everything needed to cook a nice meal. We were concerned that there wouldn't be enough to do but there are many fun towns to visit including St. Michaels, Oxford and Easton. We would recommend this property and will hopefully rent it again.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our home! You and your family were such delightful guests that it truly was our pleasure to have you stay with us and we totally agree, it really does make a difference when you are travelling to have a place where each bedroom has its own private bath. The town of St. Michaels holds many surprises, it offers a big town experience but in a quaint, relaxing way and has many shops, boutiques which which offer unique finds and restaurants with beautiful water views and fine cuisine. We would enjoy having your stay with us again since you are now part of our "family" and look forward to hearing from you hopefully in the not too distant future. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

Beautiful Home - well appointed - would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely beautiful and Jackie Scanlon (Property Manager) was a wonderful person to work with. Any questions we had, she answered immediately. Having four bedrooms each with a bathroom was an absolute bonus - provided privacy for everyone. The dining room table was enormous enough to accommodate all of us and we were only six adults and two little children.

Loved the hot tub screened in porch - you could enjoy the hot tub without any annoying pests.

St. Michaels is a wonderful little town - will definitely return in the future!

Owner's Response: What a crazy day it was when you wrote the first review and it didn't go through, then wrote a second one and it said that you had already submitted one. There was certainly a glitch in the system that day but we appreciate your tenacity in making sure that one made it through so that your voice could be heard. You summed up all the wonderful things that we feel make our home special and it is great to know that you enjoyed your stay, the abundant wildlife and our home. Needless to say, we would be thrilled to have you stay with us again. You were an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. Enjoy the rest of your summer and I look forward to hearing from you again hopefully in the not too distant future.

The main body of water is the Chesapeake Bay. Major tributaries off the Choptank River are Broad Creek, the Miles River and Leadenham Creek. All have very safe waters for power craft with 3 feet or less of draft. Waterways run from 5 to 20 feet of depth. There is great crabbing and fishing in these waters.
