About the property

4 BR Waterfront Home With Pool, Dock, Kayaks, Foosball, Bikes, Ping Pong, & More

Tranquility is ideal for families or groups looking for a comfortable house with ample activities and access to all that St. Michaels and the Chesapeake region offers. The house has been newly renovated with new bathrooms and kitchen and a new pier installed in 2014.

Four bedrooms include (1) King bedroom, (1) Queen bedroom, (1) Two Doubles bedroom, and (1) Two Twins bedroom. Plus, two newly renovated bathrooms with marble and travertine and an outdoor shower.

The kitchen has just been renovated and features all the amenities that make you want to cook, including caeserstone counters, new hardwood floors, range hood, dishwasher, Kitchenaid mixer, and high-quality pots.

The house's layout features three distinct living ares, including a den/TV room, a great room with a table, sectional, and foosball table, and a sitting area adjacent to the dining room.

Outdoors, the pool has both a shallow and deep end and includes noodles and floats. A large patio and two decks flank the back of the house and feature an outdoor table and chairs, chaise lounges, and gliders. The charcoal weber grill and gas smoker are there to make great steaks, burgers, and ribs, or to cook the fish you catch out on the water. Steam some crabs and enjoy the sunset. Plus, relax in the double hammocks and enjoy the setting sun on the watermen crabbing out in the cove.

Walk down to the dock where you can fish or crab. We have crab traps and crab pots available for you to use, just add some chicken necks. Or, you can fish right off the dock. If you want a bigger adventure, you can rent a boat from next door and go out on the water to fish, crab, or ride for the day. You can also bring the two kayaks out on the water to explore the cover or Harris Creek. The cove depth varies from about a foot to several feet, so the dock is best used for kayaks or boats with a very small draw.

In addition to foosball, we have a ping pong table, extensive kids toys, bocce, two bikes, and tiki torches. You're a short ride into the town to some of the best boutiques and restaurants you can find. Plus, you're only three minutes from the best seafood available at Chesapeake Landing.

Come to Tranquility to relax, enjoy yourself, spend time with family and friends, or explore the Bay Hundred area.

About Kevin

We live in Washington, DC with our three year old and newborn sons and beagle mix. We actually got engaged while in St. Michaels nearly ten years ago and have loved the area ever since.

Kevin purchased this house in 2012

Why Kevin chose Chesapeake Bay

We always hoped to own a home in St. Michaels. For many years we've visited the area with friends, and when we found Tranquility, we knew it was a special house. We love how we can host family and friends here yet not feel crowded or on top of one another. We especially love the pool and taking the kayaks out on the water. We crab as often as possible and bring our sons to the many parks and playgrounds nearby.

Family fun for all ages.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home on a beautiful location. The locale is so unique. Our 7 and 6 year old loved going crabbing and chasing lightning bugs. We had a terrific low tech experience. We had a lovely family vacation.

Perfect spot for our mini family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of family had a marvelous mini-reunion in beautiful St. Michaels at Tranquility. The house was perfect: Spacious and well done, but homey and welcoming. Lots of toys for the kids, and most important, outdoor adventures waiting just outside the door. They loved the dock, the kayaks, the crab traps, the easy fishing and the mud. We loved the outdoor seating and the grill for cooking. We made wonderful memories preparing food, eating, and playing at Tranquility. It was also an easy distance for the St. Michael's half-marathon, a wonderful race. The owners were responsive, and the house was ready! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Great Weekend getaway !

  • 4 of 5

Rented Tranquility for a "girls weekend". Spacious home with awesome, calming water view. Big kitchen with long island to gather around.

A bit of rain didn't hinder our relaxation. Location was only minutes from St. Michael's - cute town with lots to explore. Great communication with Kevin, the owner.

Great Relaxing Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We really liked this house especially the great room which has plenty of seating and a lovely view of the creek. There is a nice big kitchen and dining room which is great for a family of ten. Everyone really enjoyed the pool and hanging out in the hammocks. The more adventurous among us tried the kayaks which was great fun. It is close to St Michaels which has a good selection of shops and restaurants. We particularly liked Ava's and the many ice cream parlors. If you like wine its fun to do the wine tasting. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation with activities available close by if you feel like it.

The Big House

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised when Kevin contacted us that we could come to the house 4 hours earlier if we wanted to. Our extended family was coming from Florida to Boston to enjoy a week together. We couldn't have found a better place to do this than at "The Big House" (as my 2 yr old nephew is still calling it). Beautiful layout, plenty of room, ping pong, fooseball, pool table, beautiful huge backyard with gas grill, patio area, large deck, large pool, kayaks with dock to launch from, who could ask for more! Close to a friendly small quaint little town and 20 minutes to everything you need! Wonderful scenery, sunsets from the deck and great for biking in the area. We did it all! Thanks to Kevin who was very responsive and returned our deposit within a week! We can't wait to come back!

Tranquility is located in St. Michaels, on Maryland's eastern shore. About 1 hour 30 minutes from Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD and 2 hours from Philadelphia, PA, the community is located in an ideal location for a short drive from major metropolitan areas and the Washington, Baltimore, and Philadelphia airports and train stations.

We love the area because its' far enough away to feel a world away, yet, a reasonable drive. The house is a few miles outside of the center of town, which means you're in a quiet, nature-filled area, yet only a few minutes from all of the shops and restaurants in idyllic St. Michaels.

St. Michaels and Tranquility are an ideal location for spending time on the water. Take out the kayaks or fish and crab from the dock. You can even rent a boat to go out on the water from the 'bed n boat' next door. Spend time relaxing in the pool or resting on the hammocks.

St. Michaels has great restaurants, including fine dining at 209 Talbot and Bisto St Michaels, casual dining at Gina's and Ava's and great seafood at Chesapeake Landing and Crab Claw. Our favorite stores include Chesapeake Bay Outfitters, American/Holiday, and the toy store.

The Maritime Museum is award-winning and worth spending an afternoon. Habourtowne Golf Resort is less than 5 minutes away and offers a fun golf course. Tennis courts are available at the local school. Children love all of the parks and playgrounds, including the Perry Cabin Park on Rt 33, the 'boat park' down Railroad Ave in St Michaels, and the Neavitt Park, about 5 miles down Bozman Neavitt Rd.
