Great Sunrises, Great Sunsets and a Very Peaceful Town

  • 4 of 5

We loved Deale, Maryland. This 1940's built cottage was very small, but it had a beautiful view of the Chesapeake Bay. We saw commercial crabbers every morning, saw lots of motorboats, sailboats and two families of ospreys which I love to watch. We did not know the pier in front of this cottage was a community pier so there were lots of people walking past, very friendly to talk to, but they all love to walk down this pier. The only reason I gave my review only 4 stars was for the terrible pots and pans in this tiny cottage, please, if your pots and pans look terrible, no one wants to use them. I did bring my own pots and pans because someone had mentioned the same thing. I really didn't do that much cooking, but it doesn't cost that much to supply this little cottage with new cooking pans. This cottage was very close to Skippers and Happy Harbor which we loved both of these restaurants. We also found a place called Parks Crabs that sell steamed crabs to take home. Happy Harbor had the BEST soft crabs ever.

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 6 month old for the long holiday weekend. Good amount of space for spreading out all her stuff including the playmat and portable crib. As advertised an amazing spot and views right on the bay. Unfortunately for us the weather wasn't great, so we weren't able to enjoy the yard, but watching the stormy bay from the bed was pretty awesome. Only downside for us was that it stated there was a microwave but there wasn't...not a huge deal as we only needed it to heat up baby food for a few seconds, but would have been nice. Overall a very good stay!

A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this property with not much of a clue what to expect from Deale, for a long weekend getaway. We thought the pictures looked great, and loved the price for a house this close to the bay! As we were driving there, we were pleasantly surprised that Deale is a very small town, with lots of woods, and farms on the drive in. It's just the place to go if you're looking to slow down and take some time to relax. The house is adorable, full of sunshine from the yellow walls, and all the natural light. Everything was very clean and it had all that we needed. It was so convenient that linens were provided, and the bed was super comfortable. We were outside so much that we didn't use the living room at all! The location on the bay was stunning, and it was wonderful to have the fishing pier right there. My husband fished every day off the pier with some success, and it was a great place to watch sunrise and sunset, as well as the sailboats and fishing/crabbing boats. It was very quiet and peaceful, not many people around, except those walking their dogs. There are a handful of restaurants within 10 minutes driving distance, as well as a grocery store. Our favorite place we visited was Country Bakery, which has made to order hot donuts, and delicious soft serve ice cream. If looking for fishing supplies and bait, I recommend Tri State Marine tackle shop. The ladies there were so welcoming, and gave us recommendations for restaurants. We saw them the next day at breakfast at Happy Harbor, and it was like seeing old friends. If you're looking to get away from a busy life and just sit by the bay, this is definitely the place for you!

Quiet area, clean rental, unbelievable views!

  • 5 of 5

Found this place by chance on Home Away, and so, so happy that we did! First, the cottage itself was super clean when we arrived. That is a must for us, and we weren't diss appointed. Second, this place is right on the water in a small private community, with the local fishing pier right outside the back door. I caught plenty of white perch off the pier, and a 7 day Md license is only 12 bucks! There are also steps that take you right into the bay, which is only a couple feet deep for a good distance. We have a disabled son who is bigger these days and having the water to play in right outside the door was huge for us. It's also pet friendly, so our dog had a blast! Unlike most beaches, the pooch was able to swim in the bay with us and he loved it! The cottage itself has spectacular views of the bay, due to the many many windows in the property. The sunrise comes right in the bedroom window. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable, which is a huge plus! If I were to make any suggestions to anyone thinking about renting this place, It would be to make sure you bring cooking supplies if you plan on cooking your meals. It does have a nice little kitchen, but does not have any spices, and just a few pans and pots. This is by no means a complaint, just a suggestion for the home cookers. The owner, Fitzgerald, is extremely kind and caring of those who rent his place. My 75 pound labradoodle had a breakdown when the grass cutting guy came to the house and he jumped on the mini blind on the front door and destroyed it. We were so upset and worried about it and losing our deposit. I emailed the owner before we left to let him know, and he called me back right away. He was completely understanding, as well as polite when he called me back to tell me not to worry about it, as things happen. I 100% recommend this place to anyone wanting to get to get away, without being around tons of people. Awesome place, awesome owner and awesome little town. If you stumble across this ad, so your self a favor and rent it! You will not be disappointed. Also, my son is disabled and in a wheelchair, and we had no problem accessing the place at all. Only one little step to get into the front door. And the floor plan is wide open so very handicap accessible. Thank you for making our vacation a great one, Fitzgerald.
