Located about 85 miles or a 2-hour drive from Washington DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia, 'Still Pond Point' is a 50 acre 'getaway' located on Still Pond Creek, near Chestertown, Maryland. This penninsula-shaped property has 3,000 feet of direct waterfront! The private sandy beach and 150 foot pier are great for swimming, boating and relaxing with friends and family.
With 4,000 square feet, large room sizes and open layout, the house is designed for family get-togethers. The house can accomodate 2 families. The main gathering place inside the home is the large great room with quarry stone fireplace, satellite TV and plenty of comfortable seating for everyone. There are 4 bedrooms, each with king or queen beds and private bathrooms attached. Two of the guest rooms have additional trundle beds for extra sleeping capacity. There is also a den with a futon foldout bed.
The large wraparound deck with hot tub and screened porch are perfect for those warm Summer nights. The grounds are expansive, so the only neighbors you are likely to see are the four-legged kind - the property is home to plenty of wildlife. Bring your sports equipment for pickup ball games out on the huge front lawn, or gather around the fire pit at the beach for roasting marshmallows!
Still Pond Creek is connected to the Chesapeake Bay for easy access to the largest estuary in the world! The 'creek' is a smaller, protected body of water with no jellyfish, which makes for fantastic water skiing, tubing, fishing, etc. If you have a boat you can tie up to the dock, but the boat hoists are not available. There are several restaurants and other attractions in nearby Chestertown and Rock Hall.
Come with your family and friends and enjoy this spectacular property and explore the area to see all that the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay has to offer!

I'm one of four siblings who share our parent's vacation home. We have enjoyed countless hours of water skiing, fishing, sailing and swimming on the creek and gathering with our families for holidays at Still Pond Point.
Jay Barrett purchased this house in 1981
My Parents purchased this property about 30 years ago and built the home to be a place for all of us to come together with our friends and family as often as possible. The convenience with close proximity to metropolitan areas, the desirable, quaint town of nearby Chestertown and the unique characteristics of the property were the primary reason's for selecting this location.
Still Pond Point offers a getaway like no other. Once you drive through the stone gate at the top of the driveway, the privacy and tranquility that the 270 degrees surrounding water awaits. With expansive grounds and everyone has room to roam and plenty of things to do. The sandy beach and fire pit at the point offer a comfortable spot for families to relax and enjoy while on vacation.
The property is beautiful: spacious, warm, and located on a huge plot of land that runs all along the water and features all sorts of wildlife. We had a great time running around outdoors in the day and then staying up late in front of the fire at night. Check in was easy and everything was clean and inviting. The bedrooms are large and private, with multiple bathrooms that was excellent for our group of five couples. Only complaint of note is that the house is connected to well water, which smelled a little funky for the days we were there. Highly recommend.
Fantastic experience with three of my lifelong best friends and their families for my 50th year. The house and property were simply stunning and very private. We spent hours each evening in conversation around the fire-pit, just off the beach. The dining table, along with a side table and chairs from other spaces, allowed all 15 of us to have two dinners together. Kitchen was extremely well stocked and once we settled in on Friday, never needed to leave until our rental ended on Monday morning. Communications with owner were timely and deposit refund was prompt. You will love this place.
Our family vacation at the Barrett home was ideal. 4 bedrooms with each having their own bathroom was the best.
The access to the water for kayaking and Paddleboarding was so great .
Regarding the house, the back porch area needs rescreening badly, but we enjoyed sitting out there early morning.
Wildlife abounds .....deer, and bird life so enjoyable. I made sure the bird bath in the back yard was full before I left
I hope other renters do the same. A variety of birds were there every day !
Eating @ Barbaras on the Bay @ Betterton Beach ,good restaurant and nearby.
All in all a very enjoyable 2 weeks..

We loved this house - perfect for our group of 4 young families. We each had our own room with bathroom, lots of gathering space, a good kitchen, sound system was really nice to have music on. The property looked beautiful - it was really cold out our weekend, so we didn't get to enjoy it much, but could tell it would be great. Super easy to ask questions and book via the app and email. Would highly recommend!
We have been visiting Still Pond Point every winter for the past four years for our annual waterfowl hunting trip, and this is the right place in the right place. Our days are filled with the legendary waterfowl in for which the Maryland Eastern Shore is renown, and our evenings afire filled with cooking, enjoying the fruits of our harvest, and sharing stories.
One in our group remarked as we were unloading the car that it feels like coming home when we visit Still Pond Point. We hope to have many more such visits!
We stayed a long weekend, and enjoyed our stay thoroughly!
The listing was accurate, the house was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and the house layout was perfect for our 4 adult couples. The property was beautiful and fun to walk around, perfect for long walks in the morning!
Jay was very easy to work with, we would definitely come back!
We also recommend these places in Chestertown: The Fish Whistle and Lemon Leaf Cafe!
