The house is comfortably furnished with English and Asian antiques An organic veggie garden, swimming pool and waterfront patio overlook the deep water cove which offers a tramquil water view and a variety of waterfow both summer and winter. Added this winter is a first floor en suite bedroom with limited handicap accessibility (wheelchairs up to 23.5 inches).
My husband surprised me with a "get away" week to St Michael's in July; when he showed me the photos online I began to count down the days. We arrived with my 81 year old mother, niece, step son, girlfriend, and dog in tow and immediately fell in love with the place. So much so, we booked again end Aug-Sept for two weeks.
The home/property really is an extension of the lovely owner -- warm, elegant, natural, and clearly, an incredible host. We immediately felt a sense of home (with a better view!).
On our first visit we were greeted with two lovely welcome baskets: one for 'humans' (filled with goodies from local vendors) and another for our dog, Scout. The second stay included Kitty treats for the other four legged member of our family.
The property is private and the view spectacular with an updated pool facing the water. From the well stocked kitchen to the fluffy white bath towels, over sized pool towels, and comfortable yet elegant furnishings, the rental really did become home for two weeks. (So much so I think the owners were concerned about squatters rights!)
My husband and I were pretty specific in what we wanted in a home away from home: privacy, updated but not overdone, elegance with Eastern shore feel, pet friendly, clean, dock, spacious with unobstructed water views, close to town (under 3 miles) and enough yard for the dog to roam. We were delighted with the fresh Vegetable garden with delicious tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, etc and now add that to our "must have" list should we look outside of St Michael's. As for vacationing on the Eastern Shore, we are set -- we found our Home Away from Home in this exquisite property and we are already lining up for our next stay.
We travel a lot and are fussy, and we have rented in St. Michael's before. This house was wonderful---meticulously maintained, decorated with great taste, well-equipped kitchen, all needs and wants anticipated. The setting is spectacular---glorious water, many places to sit and watch the birdlife, perfect pool, lovely screen porch for dining late into the night. We hated to leave.
We rented this lovely home for 2 weeks over the 4th of July weekend.
Upon entering there is a long beautiful driveway and you find yourself exhaling.
The house is spacious , very clean and well stocked.
The 4 bedrooms were lovely and spacious.
For a 4 day period there were 8 of us occupying the house.
We did some cooking at the house and found the kitchen to be well Equipped. There is a well maintained garden and the owner encouraged usage which I took full advantage of.
The house gets lots sun in the late morning / early afternoon so the pool was a welcome addition.
There is an additional shower off the screened in porch that came in handy!
The yard is super spacious and also well maintained.
The owner is so gracious and provided handbooks for any and everything one might need to know.
Her restaurant recommendations are spot on.
There are local supermarkets, seafood markets, local produce, restaurants and golfing just minutes away.
By 5:30pm head down to the dock and enjoy the peace and quite of the evening.
There is rarely traffic on the water and its still. So if you're into paddle boarding or kayaking its perfect!
Lots of beautiful birds and butterflies are on the property.
We did spend the evenings out on the patio by the pool so there are mosquitos.
I remedied that problem with citronelle candles.
This is a great property for all
occasions. It is exactly as descibed and more.
We live in DC and traveling back and forth a couple times took about 1hr 20min!
If I over used the words well maintained .... Sorry but it is;)
I can't remember enjoying a week more. The house is beautiful, one can tell great care was used in selecting the furnishings. Everything is of the highest quality and yet comfortable and relaxing at the same time. The kitchen is well-equipped, I found everything I wanted, and the view from the breakfast table is glorious. One feels at home. The water is right at the edge of the property, a stroll to the dock always rewarded the birdwatcher. Total privacy and yet the town of St. Michael's has great restaurants, intriguing shops, and local history to delve into, and it's just minutes away.
This "Slice of Heaven" in St. Michaels will forever be one of the best homes we have rented. From the welcome basket and champagne to toast our recent marriage to every detail throughout the home - your stay either it be one week or one month will have you leaving relaxed and spoiled. We invited some friends from DC to share in all the property has to offer (beautiful pool, gorgeous dock and land, and comfortable interior spaces) as they walked away in Ahh of the property. Do not hesitate to book this home as you will be happy you did - we are.
This home is as beautiful and welcoming as shown in the photographs. Our family had a wonderful week relaxing by the water in this picture perfect setting.
I can't say enough about the special touches that make you feel right at home, only better. The owner's warmth and style greet you at every corner. We enjoyed the organic veggie garden, the deep water dock for our boat, crabbing off the pier, and beautiful sunrises. My little girl told her older sister, "Just look how the sunlight dances on the water!"
I'd like to keep this place as my own little secret....
