Stevensville House Rental Photos and Description

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!

Thank you Mike! The family wedding weekend was wonderful, your property perfect for our needs ++. And - your availability to answer questions with helpful hospitality was most appreciated. If ever in the area again, we will look for your listings.

Kindest Regards,

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.

Fall Family Fishing Trip

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location. House was comfortable and easily accommodated our disabled dad. Downstairs bedrooms were a perfect fit for us.

A few essentials could use some attention: light bulbs, utensils, TV remotes- small conveniences.

We stayed here before and made use of the crab steamer and outdoor smoker. We were disappointed that neither was available this time.

Overall, it is a perfect location for enjoying family gatherings and some fishing and crabbing.

Owner's Response: Linda, Thanks so much for your review! We are very proud to have repeat renters visit our kent island home! We have addressed the issues you brought up and apologize that they weren't resolved before you arrived. The crab steamer developed a tiny hole in the bottom which made it unusable. We have replaced it and the outdoor grill/smoker as well for 2016, in addition to replacing the carpet upstairs with new laminate flooring and a fresh coat of paint! We hope your family will return again this fall!

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.
