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.

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.

Honeymoon Heaven

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect House in a Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many vacation houses over the years and this is by far our favorite. The house itself is beautiful. The kitchen is very modern and extremely well-equipped (better than our kitchen at home!) Th living room is spacious and comfortable. The beds were all very comfortable. The location was spectacular. We woke up early in the mornings to watch the osprey and egrets flying around the creek. We went out in the canoes in the morning which was just a delight. The sunsets were a highlight of our stay -- they were incredibly beautiful and sitting on the dock couldn't be more peaceful. We explored the area some, including a trip to Hooper's Island which is about a half hour to 45 minutes away. We went to Old Salty's restaurant on the island and had some of the freshest seafood we've had in a long time. It was a beautiful drive and a great way to spend a day. we also went to the wildlife refuge twice and saw several eagles, an otter and lots of great blue heron. The pool was icing on the cake. I ended up spraining my ankle badly about mid-way through our vacation and was glad I was in such a pretty place. I spent the last part of the week sitting by the pool overlooking the creek and enjoying the peacefulness of it all. We definitely plan to return!

Baer Necessities was all we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this great location. Everything you could possibly need was here for us. All we need is a cook! You can read the amenities list to see that everything was thought of to make our stay comfortable and fun. If you are looking for quiet and comfortable, this is the place. We rode bikes into town every day, fished, swam, enjoyed family and friends, ate great crabs, the bugs were not bad, the wildlife (osprey) were amazing to watch and generally were able to "leave it all back in Carroll County" . The only hard part was leaving. Thanks for a great place to vacation!

Four Visits In Four Years, Never Disappointed

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay at Baer Necessities. Our family wouldn't think of renting anywhere else. The house is as clean as you would keep your own home. The yard is beautifully landscaped. The pool is clean and the perfect size. The dock is ideal. Our teenage son is an avid crabber and fisherman, and he is never bored here. My husband, too, fished off the dock every morning while watching the sun come up. We swam every afternoon and took the bikes out for a spin (complete with helmets!). There was everything we needed for steaming up our fresh-caught crabs and picking them under the patio, in the shade -- a perfect Maryland pastime.

During our stay this year, we celebrated our son's 16th birthday. Every year, I bake him his favorite cake. Nothing had to change this year. Baer Necessities is as well-appointed as my own kitchen. I brought my ingredients, but everything right down to the mixer, cake pan, and even a cake pedestal was all there for the using. Actually, if I am honest, BN has a nicer and newer oven than my own, and I do believe the cake turned out even better here!

There are plenty of local shops and restaurants for people like me, who can't fish all day, every day. Little jaunts here and there, in the heat of the afternoon, and ending with a nice meal out somewhere on the water; plenty of good restaurants to choose from.

The owners of Baer Necessities seem to take personal pride in their guests' enjoyment. They concern themselves with all the details that will be important for your stay, but also give you your space to relax and enjoy. One year, after a strong wind storm, a large tree limb had come down and was partially blocking the driveway. We notified the owners, and they had a tree service there to remove it within the hour, and we weren't inconvenienced in any way. Things like this make us feel certain that each stay here will be peaceful and relaxing. We're already looking forward to next year. Thanks, Baer Necessities!
