All bedrooms have ample dresser and closet space. The master bedroom with its water views has a private bath, queen size bed, with a 27' LED flat screen HD TV (basic cable only) with DVD player.

You'll love visits during the cooler months when you can build a fire in our living room's raised hearth fireplace. If you travel with your laptop, our home is equipped with wireless Internet.

Choose a good book from our collection in the mahogany lined den, connect your gaming system into the 32' flat screen HD TV, watch a movie on the Blu-ray disc player from our selection of DVD's, or choose from a wide selection of board/card games for all ages.

We hope you enjoy the Cambridge area and our home as much as we do!

Why Teri Baer chose Chesapeake Bay

For years we crossed the Choptank River bridge and drove through Cambridge on our way to vacations in Ocean City and were intrigued by its quaintness. We spent a few long weekends exploring the area, decided to purchase a home, and found our property on Jenkins Creek. We've decided to share our home as a vacation property. We hope you enjoy our home and the Cambridge area as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

Our home is located at the end of Jenkins Creek Road overlooking the water and only several minutes from downtown Cambridge with its unique shops and restaurants. Minimal local traffic make walking, jogging, and bike riding safe and pleasurable. The school and city park at the town end of Jenkins Creek Road (1 1/4 miles away) have tennis and basketball courts, a baseball diamond, play areas for kids, and views of the Choptank river. Great Marsh Park, with its public boat launch, fishing docks, and picnic areas is only about 2 miles away. Also, because of our location, you can explore the Cambridge area without the hassle of the beach traffic on Route 50.

Quiet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Baer Necessities and we were so pleased again with the house and lovely grounds. It is close to the center of town where you can find great meals at Bistro Poplar, The High Spot, and Portside to name a few, or travel to Black Water to bike or kayak or just walk the nature path. If you want to relax and take in all the wonderful nature the area has to offer, this is the rental for you. We watched osprey, eagles, ducks, geese, deer, and even owls all from the back yard. The dock is great for fishing and crabbing and even putting in a kayak to explore. The kitchen was recently remodeled, looks great and offers all the amenities you could want or need. We will be back and definitely recommend staying here!!

Exceeds expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Baer Necessities was exactly as presented and more. This welcoming cottage covers all the 'bare' necessities as spacious, clean and comfortable but offers added amenities such that include a well appointed kitchen, lovely screened in porch, hot tub, pool, peaceful location on the waterfront, beautiful property.... I could go on.

The owners were helpful and available, making our visit truly enjoyable.

I would highly recommend staying at Baer Necessities if in the Cambridge area.

Sisters Mini-Week

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful comfortable home with all the amenities - dock for beautiful sunsets, pool, bikes for easy rides, blue herons fishing, etc. The home is beautifully maintained and the new kitchen is a cooks dream! Our visit this year was our third one and we are already planning next years visit. I forgot to mention adult beverages by the pond, pure relaxation! Teri could not be more helpful.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This well-maintained home was the perfect place for our family gathering. It provided all the ingredients for a relaxing time together: a pleasant setting surrounded by water on two sides, a screened-in porch, pool, hot tub, dock over the water, and comfy couches in the living room. The house had both communal areas where we gathered for good food and conversation as well as ample space for solitude and quiet reflection. We particularly enjoyed watching the sunset from the dock. The quiet, peaceful setting on the water was a wonderful way to end the day. While we were a group of senior citizens, I would not hesitate to return with my children and grandchildren because the house has so much for young people to enjoy, e.g. ping pong table, foosball table, backyard pool, DVD's, board games, and plenty of green lawns for running, cartwheeling, and playing. Less than 24 hours after our arrival, we were already saying, "The next time we come we should...." Baer Necessities definitely surpassed our expectations.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon weekend at this property, and it was fabulous! This place is impeccably clean and has everything you need for rest, relaxation, active fun, entertainment, cooking, etc... We will definitely rent again! (I've rented many homes over the years, and this is by far my favorite!) Teri was so gracious, attentive, & thoughtful - a much appreciated plus!!!

Wonderful, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Baer Necessities! The house is in great condition and there are lots of little touches to make it feel extra special. The setting is just beautiful, with the creek right in the back yard and the meticulous landscaping. We loved the pool and spent hours going between swimming, lounging on the deck, fishing from the dock and from the canoes, playing ping pong, just hanging out... We spent almost three days at Baer Necessities, with five kids ranging from 9 to 19, and we didn't have to leave the property even once!
