Overview

About the property

Adorable cottage in heart of Oxford, walk to park, great family spot

Tucked away just as you arrive in the town of Oxford, Pride and Joy is a terrific spot for those looking for a step back in time--when you could walk to corner store for milk and an ice cream, meander up the street for walk or check out the local produce stand, or simply sit on the front porch and admire the scenery. A perfect cottage for those wanting to enjoy nothing more than some peace and quiet and the respite that Oxford is known for.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family had a lovely reunion this past weekend. My son sings with a

group from NYC who were preforming for the village of Oxford.

We enjoyed ourselves in our own beautiful cottage

Oxford, Maryland, was officially founded in 1694, making it one of Maryland's oldest towns. Oxford is located near the mouth of the Tred Avon River and served as an important port of entry for British trade vessels in Colonial times. Oxford enjoyed prominence as a shipping center that was surrounded by wealthy tobacco plantations. After the American Revolution, the British import business dried up and the town declined for many years until the oystering businesses began to flourish in the late 1800's.

Today, Oxford is a quiet town that is enjoyed by visitors who appreciate its history and charm. In 2011, Yachting Magazine named Oxford the world's best waterfront town. Chesapeake Bay Magazine has previously named the town 'Best of' in the following categories—Best Town for Families, Best Town for Inexpensive Docking and Best Town for Sightseeing

Reviewer Comments:

Lovely house. Charming town (Oxford). Only complaint is that there was very little room in the kitchen for a renter to put things because it was filled with owners' belongings. We had to pile food on the counters. ESVR was great- the rental process could not have been easier.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a fabulous time in Oxford & thoroughly loved the Pride & Joy cottage. If possible, we'd love to come back next year. I got to visit the Mystery Loves Company shop but didn't get to the museum. We also enjoyed the Pope Tavern & Scottish Highland Creamery... on more than one occasion! Neighbors were warm & friendly. We were happy to meet so many other dog lovers. The cottage was charming & impeccably clean. We needed customer service once & they responded quickly & efficiently. A PERFECT vacation. As far as recommending it to others... I'm not sure because I want to keep this my little secret :-) I'm kidding. I'd recommend this trip to anyone!

Reviewer Comments:

House was clean, well-appointed, and in a very quiet little neighborhood. Great choice for families with small children, as the folks that own this house have a few - several baby gates available, as well as lots of child-friendly plates/cups/silverware, booster seat, etc. Bunk beds have a nice high rail, and I felt comfortable with my 3 and 5 year olds sleeping up there. The TV turned right on to Disney Junior, and my kids had a blast taking a ride around the block in the wagon that was in the yard. Recommend the owners put black-out curtains in the bedroom with the bunk beds though!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time in Oxford over the 4th of July weekend. The accommodations were very nice and comfortable and the weather cooperated. We hope to return next year. Our only recommendation on the house in that the WiFi was a bit spotty, but other then that, it was great!
