We’ve rented on the Eastern Shore for years, this is a very nice property on a great cove off Harris Creek. Barbara is great to work with. Can’t recommend here or the property enough.
Our wonderful property nestled on the cove is the greatest spot for the perfect family fun vacation. Our home has plenty of open gathering space as well as niches for private time. Plenty to do from the dock pool or combing our five pus acres.
Just came back from our family vacation and this place has everything you need!!! Very spacious and very private! The whole family enjoyed every minutes of our stay. Barbara was very helpful throughout the whole process and very pleasant. Definitely will be back!
The Cove at St.Michaels has private spaces for guests. Our large gathering room is ready for TV, games or enjoying a bowl of popcorn, a separate great room is open to the kitchen/dining area and there are nooks to read or just daydream on the screened porch. The waterfront pool, dock, views, and skies are the best that the Eastern Shore has to offer.
I can't express how beautiful the house and pool was the pictures don't do it justice. We had a range from a 5 year old to 60 and there was plenty of privacy when needed. The kids loved the basketball court. We wish we could have utilized the yard more but the grass was pretty high,when we got there. When we mentioned it to the property manager right away she stopped by and thought it wasn't bad and would try to get someone out. They wound up coming on Fri when we had already been there for 5 days, and they were cutting the neighbor's house as well. So I guess they weren't able to come out any sooner. So when your kids are complaining or running through the grass as fast as they can because it's itchy on there legs. It makes them not want to go outside.We are an outdoors family and work a lot and wanted a retreat. When we went to the dock for our boat it was covered in bird dropping no place to even grab without touching droppings. We found a hose on the side of the house which was great, long enough to wash down the long beautiful dock,just seemed neglected. I did reach out to property manager the same time about the grass about a hose. She bought another hose for the dock the next day and was told to put back the other for the pool service. The towns close by were very cute and people were very nice. Other than the property manager coming at 10am when we were cleaning up when our check out was 11am which is listed on the site and in the book that she referenced 3xs during our stay.Telling us "ok let's go, I have the cleaning crew coming your suppose to be out by 10am". I felt it was very rude and intrusive, in front of my in- laws and children. Again we work hard and wanted a retreat felt interrupted during our week with the property manager,pool service in the middle of the day and grass being cut again in the middle of another day. And then the manager coming an hour earlier pushing us out the door. And mind you we were just finishing up dishing and was packed up ready to leave for 11 not 10.
We are delighted when our guests enjoy our wonderful five-acre, waterfront property. We share The Cove with all that nature offers the eastern shore. We pride ourselves in having a professional landscape service to maintain our grounds on a weekly basis, as well as, a pool company servicing our pool. Management responds to all requests made by our guests and immediately corrects any errors made in their check out schedules We respect our guests' privacy .
A beautiful property!
We had a lovely stay in a beautiful home. A few details still need addressing to make the experience perfect. For instance, the hot tub was not hot and needed a service (according to the display); the playground was great but needed a bit of cleaning before the kids could get on it due to spider webs and bird droppings and a bit of left over winter smudge; and putting in a small bench or chairs at the end of the peer would make it perfect for fishing or just enjoying the view. But these were small details. The house is spacious and comfortable, the location is fantastic, and the whole family (from age 7 months to 62) felt very comfortable. The property manager was fantastic, making every aspect of renting easy. She put up with lots of requests and modifications with ease. We will definitely be open to renting this house again and encourage others to do the same.
The Cove at St.Michaels is the perfect waterfront spot for family friends getaways . We strive for perfection and will continue to make improvements. We thank you for your suggestions.
A beautiful property providing a very special place to unwind
This was an amazing place to spend time with family (including young grandchildren) and friends. There was plenty of room for everyone and enough space for people to spread out. The website was a bit unclear about the extra sofa space but it all worked out very well. We were there for a wedding but would love to return some time to just relax and enjoy the porch, the view of the cove, the pool, the hottub. The house is very clean and the furniture all lovely and in very good condition. The beds were all very comfortable except the trundle bed upstairs (a bit squeaky and thin) . The kitchen (S!) were fantastic with lots of space to dine with our large group. Very nice set up for 2 families affording some privacy. My grandson says he loves Grandma's house in Maryland and can't wait to go back. (if only!!!). We spent hours at the drawbridge and took an amazing sail on the bay on a lovely historic sailboat. The owners clearly care about this property and the attention to detail was impressive. If I ever have a reason to return to the area I would surely want to stay on this property.
