About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This spacious and comfortable home on the Chesapeake Bay is the perfect location for a family vacation, reunion, or accomodation while in the area for a wedding or other special event. Relax on one of our numerous decks or balconies or lounge in the hammock and let the sweet sounds of the Chesapeake take your troubles away! Or, if fishing and crabbing is more your thing, you can do both right on our 150' dock. You and your family will have a great time in this large home with four queen beds and two twins- we even have two separate living rooms which is great for travelers with children! We are less than an hour from all the sights in DC and Baltimore, and 25 minutes away from historic Annapolis and St. Michaels. We are also less than 10 minutes away from major wedding venues including Chesapeake Bay Beach Club, Kent Manor Inn, Queen Annes Bayside, and others! Bring your camera to have a memory of our incredible sunsets over the Chesapeake Bay!

The home is equipped with a fully stocked kitchen, commercial crab steamer, lots of beach chairs and furniture for our large rooftop decks and patios, swimming floats and toys, and two hammocks!

Why The Owner chose Maryland

We chose this location because it has a huge yard directly on the Chesapeake Bay and has great crabbing and fishing. Its proximity to Annapolis (25 minutes) and DC and Baltimore (both 50 minutes) made it even more appealing. Its even close to the ocean beaches of Delaware and Maryland! We love Kent Island's local charms- friendly people, beautiful landscapes, and fantastic seafood!

What makes this house unique

We love the sunsets over the Chesapeake Bay, getting up early to fish or crab off of our dock, having family get-togethers on our huge waterfront lawn, and taking advantage of everything else Kent Island has to offer!

Wonderful Family Vacation Spot on the Chesapeake Bay

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic setting for our extended family to gather for our milestone birthday celebration. It was the perfect spot to make memories and share lots of laughter during our stay. Location, location, location. We were able to enjoy an idyllic setting on the water yet it was only a short drive into town to enjoy shops, waterfront walkways, a beach and dining. Crabbing was so much fun for everyone, we had a crab feast every night as we sat on the deck overlooking the water and enjoying the beautiful sunsets. The house had a great layout which was important when you have lots of people staying with you. The two living areas came in handy for the little ones to play on one side while the adults hung out on the other. We have so many great pictures of relaxing in the hammocks and enjoying the waterfront as the crab boats went by. At night we roasted marshmallows by the fire while the little ones ran around with glow sticks. Mike, the owner was so helpful and easy to work with. His suggestions of places to go as we planned our celebration were spot on. We had internet issues that he tirelessly tried to remedy but we survived. His goal was to insure our trip would be special and it was. The picture on my desktop showing the view of the waterfront at sunset with my 4 year old grandson looking out makes me smile every time. We rent from VRBO/HomeAway often and would definitely come back again.

Beauty on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

Our second time here! Our son's commissioning week at US Naval Academy couldn't have been better! Once again, the view of the bay is STUNNING! This home owner is immediate to respond if you have any questions or issues. Plenty of room for young children, adult children, grandparents with disabilities, and the perfect location for celebrations or simply relaxing. The weather was beautiful despite the hot temperatures; you always have a sea/bay breeze here! The dock was fantastic for fishing and for parking a boat during the stay or a pickup point for sunset charter or to see the Blue Angels air show. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly; but still only a short 20 minute drive over the Bay Bridge to Annapolis. We vacation all over and choose rentals as our accommodations every time; however, this is the only one which we have returned to repeatedly for obvious reasons! You won't be disappointed! You could stay here months and never see/experience ALL that this area has to offer (D.C, Baltimore, Annapolis).

Good value

  • 3 of 5

Large spacious house direct on beautiful Bay. Weather was wet and chilly, so didn't take advantage of the location. House was comfortable but needs updating. 2 BR on first floor great for those that cannot handle steps well. Plenty of extra "bed" opportunities, with 3 couches in large living room, and 2 additional in family room off the kitchen. We didn't need that since we had 10 adults for the 5 BRs.

Owner's Response: Dan, Thanks for your review of our home. We are happy that you enjoyed our property and appreciate your bringing our attention to the slow drains and lights. We've addressed both issues so we are all set for 2016! Thanks again and hope we'll see your family again in the future.

Map

There is great fishing for rockfish, bluefish, perch, spot, and croaker as well as crabbing right off of our 150' dock. Or, if you prefer, book a charter boat from a marina five minutes from the house to get out on the bay and catch the big ones! If you are looking for other outdoor activities, visit one of the many u-pick farms in the area for fresh peaches, strawberries, blueberries and other seasonal produce. Or, visit nearby historical gems such as Annapolis, St. Michaels, or Chestertown. Ocean Beaches such as Rehobeth and Ocean City are 90 minutes away and Washington DC and Baltimore are less than 60 minutes away.
