About the property

4 Bedroom, 4 Bath, 5700 Sq Ft. Home With Broad Westerly Views Of Chesapeake Bay

This amazing property is located on 48 + acres with big broad views of the Chesapeake Bay. Last Resort is a contemporary home, built in 2009, and offers bright spaces, an abundance of windows and views of the Bay from every room. Four bedrooms, 4 full baths and two half bath spread over 5700 square feet makes this an ideal family getaway. There are great gathering spots for everyone to come together and room to roam when some quiet time is desired.

Once you drive on to this peaceful compound, surrounded by towering pines, you will never want to leave. The outdoor pursuits alone can keep you busy for a week; crab off your private pier, fish from the rocky shoreline, watch the Eagles and Osprey soaring in the thermals, enjoy a leisurely swim in the in-ground pool, kayak on the bay or stroll the pine forest. There is something for everyone!

If you would like to take a break from the outdoors, you can curl up with a book in a sunny corner, have a game of pool in the upstairs game loft, workout in the fully equipped gym, soak in the whirlpool bath or whip up a favorite recipe in the gourmet kitchen. Unfortunately our rental license does not allow us to host weddings or similar organized events. Please check with B&B's or Inn's in the area for assistance in this matter.

Friends and family alike will want to return to this amazing vacation home to enjoy the bay and make memories that will last a lifetime!

Why Chesapeake Bay Real Estate chose Chesapeake Bay

Jim and Janie have been spending time on the Eastern Shore for over 25 years! They enjoyed boating, which first drew them to the area. As they spent more time at the Eastern Shore they gravitated to the St. Michaels area because of all it offered. Jim and Janie searched for property for several months. Once they discovered the fabulous spot their home is situated on they knew this was it! There was an older home originally located on the property, but in 2009 they decided to build their dream home. The Post & Beam house that stands there today was built to their specific standards. Its design captures the huge views of the bay and passing wildlife and frames the outdoors beautifully.

What makes this estate unique

Last Resort is close to both St. Michaels and Tilghman, but makes you feel like you've been transported to an outdoor oasis by the bay. There are views from every room that let you enjoy the Chesapeake Bay and all the wildlife that stroll or fly by the property. The 48 plus acres that surround Last Resort enable you to enjoy it all surrounded by peace and quiet for the perfect getaway!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time at Last Resort Farm. We surprised my sister with a long weekend on the bay while I was in town. The house is amazing - I don't think there is a bad view of the bay from any area of the house. The weather we had was great, it even stormed one of the nights and there was an incredible show of lightning. The pool was perfectly refreshing when the days got warm, we even swam in the bay. The house was very accommodating - full bathrooms in each bedroom and an outdoor shower. The kitchen was very open and perfect for setting up our champagne brunch. The large screened in porch was perfect to hang out in at night and kept the mosquitoes at bay.

The sound system was perfect. You can play music from almost every room of the house as well as outside.

The rental agent, Ruta, was so helpful. She let us check in a little earlier than planned so we could set up some decorations to surprise my sister with. She also noticed the propane tank was low and left a replacement on the porch for us.

It was a weekend to remember and my sister was so elated with her surprise I doubt we'll ever be able to top it. We had a great time at the house and would rent it again in a heartbeat

Exceptional property in every respect. Perfect for large groups of friends or family. View is so beautiful it's hard to do it justice with photos. Driveway is 1/2 mile long, with no neighbor's in sight anywhere. House is beautifully designed, decorated, equipped and maintained. This is our second visit and we will be back again!

Absolutely amazing property, breathtaking sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

We have absolutely nothing bad to say about this property. We stayed at the house with a total of 10 people and it always felt roomy and spacious. In addition to the great pool and kayaking on the bay, it was by far the most relaxing can't help but feel relaxed in that setting. The house has a great layout, beautifully decorated and for a family that cooked most nights, the kitchen was great to cook for a large group. Even in July, we ate dinner every night in the screened in dining room, it was cool with the bay breezes and the fans. I can't forget to mention the sound system throughout the whole house and outside in the back decks and poolside, my husband was very envious!! The Agent was great and always willing to help and answer any questions we had from the moment we expressed interest in the property right through even after our visit was over. Can't forget the sunsets...absolutely beautiful and different every night.

Great views, lovely house

  • 4 of 5

Last Resort is lovely house with great views of the Bay. The first floor is large and open with the living room flowing into another seating area that is by the kitchen which flows into the dining room. The master bedroom is on the first floor as well. The furniture is pretty good and the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc. (although it lacks a large pot with a steamer basket for crabs alas). The screened in porch is larger than it appears in the pictures and is great. (although there was a tear in one panel and the panels on the door are held in by a rubber strip that is pressed into a groove; but it often comes loose when there is wind and putting the screen back in takes some time). The pool is really nice. The house is clean, well maintained and Ruta - who handles the booking, etc. - is absolutely awesome (she hooked us with a waterman who sold us the best crabs I have had in a decade). We had a great time at the house and would rent it again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words, we really love the location as well and have enjoyed numerous amazing sunsets from the deck! The last few intense storms have been wreaking havoc with our screen porch, it was completely repaired after your visit on the turnover day. Please come back and visit with us again!
