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 DMD's, or choose from a wide selection of board/card games for all ages.

Day trips include dipping your toes in the Atlantic Ocean or hanging out on the beach in Ocean City one hour east of Cambridge, exploring historic Annapolis and the Naval Academy 60 miles west just over the Bay Bridge, or spending the day at Baltimore's Inner Harbor or Washington, D.C., both about 1.5 hours from Cambridge.

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

Why Teri Baer chose Algonquin

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely fabulous stay at this Jenkins Creek property. It

has a fully stocked kitchen, great game room, hot tub and pool--plus the serenity and beauty of the property offered a peaceful place to take in the beauty of the Choptank River. I highly recommend this

rental--whether for a family or a couples retreat--it has literally

everything you could want. Also, it was a super clean and well cared

for home with plenty of room to "have your own space". We enjoyed it to the max.đź‘Ť

Ladies weekend

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at several VRBO houses over the years and this one is by far my new favorite. The location is quiet and private. The waterviews are beautiful from all points of the property. This home is so well equiped, that you won't need to bring much. The extras the owner include (dishsoap, paper products, hand soap, all linens and so so many more) make this an easy place to get away to. Teri is very accommodating and helpful with suggestions of things to do. The hottub was wonderful and sits in a private location near the pool with beautiful views of the water. We were there during the winter for a "ladies weekend" and Teri was more than happy to have the hottub ready to go at our request. I will rent this home again!!!! Can't wait to go back and watch the birds!

A very special place to retreat to

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 grandsons in tow and everyone really enjoyed the stay. The location is great, with water on 2 sides and a view across the creek, a couple hundred feet wide. You can sit and contemplate nature, catch up on reading, or be active; canoeing, bicycling, ping pong, foosball (and all that is off-season, without the pool and hot tub). And the area has lots of attractions, starting with Cambridge (within easy bicycling distance).

The house is very comfortable: 3 bedrooms, large living room, dining room, kitchen, game room, 2 bathrooms, wash room, screened porch, patio between house and pool, plus many nice touches, like several TVs and attractively planted gardens.

We'd love to come back before long and relax in this beautiful place.

Wonderful NYE Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time spending NYE weekend at Baer Necessities. Teri was incredibly easy to deal with and very responsive in coordinating everything ahead of time. The house was spacious and had so many nice amenities to utilize. The property is beautiful and the water views were great, even if it was single digit temperatures! The house is close to downtown and made for easy trips to restaurants and the local brewery. We can only imagine how great it would be in the summer! We definitely will be coming back!

Beautiful, large house, welcoming and spotless!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with pool right on a peaceful creek. We stayed during the Ironman competition and this spot was a quick 2 minute drive to the race course. The home is warmly decorated with comfortable furniture and a great kitchen with everything you need to cook! The owners were not there but checked in everyday to make sure we had everything we needed. Garden in the back with ripe tomatoes. And the house is very, very clean!! Thank you for a wonderful stay. We loved it and hope to visit again!
