The Cove At St. Michaels is a magnificent professionally decorated 15.5 acre estate property, just a 15 minute drive to the center of the Town of St. Michaels, and is the perfect location for a vacation with family and friends. With its 5 bedrooms (with hypo-allergenic encasement covers on all mattresses, pillows and box springs), 7 bathrooms, 2 full kitchens, 2 living rooms, and 2 dining rooms, our home sleeps 10+ and offers enough space for our guests to all be together – or for some guests to have their alone time.
Our home is child-friendly with its basketball hoop, play area and Wii XBOX 360 consoles. The 4 DirecTV-connected TVs (including 65', 42” and 32” HD TVs all with DVD players) provide separate entertainment opportunities for children and adults alike.
Located on the water, with 230 feet of shoreline, our home’s wrap-around screened-in porch and second open-air porch afford the opportunity to enjoy spectacular views of the peaceful Cove and its various wildlife (swans, ducks, geese, heron, to name a few). Or enjoy similar views from the private fenced-in pool and spa area.
Our 150+’ dock and its 20’ by 10’ deck provide the opportunity to enjoy the water “up close and personal,” just sitting back and relaxing, fishing or crabbing. The dock’s 4’ MLW depth should allow you to moor your boat with little concern for the tides and our location make both the Choptank River and the Chesapeake Bay easily accessible.
So come, sit back, relax and enjoy!!

This was an amazing place to spend time with family (including young grandchildren) and friends. There was plenty of room for everyone and enough space for people to spread out. The website was a bit unclear about the extra sofa space but it all worked out very well. We were there for a wedding but would love to return some time to just relax and enjoy the porch, the view of the cove, the pool, the hottub. The house is very clean and the furniture all lovely and in very good condition. The beds were all very comfortable except the trundle bed upstairs (a bit squeaky and thin) . The kitchen (S!) were fantastic with lots of space to dine with our large group. Very nice set up for 2 families affording some privacy. My grandson says he loves Grandma's house in Maryland and can't wait to go back. (if only!!!). We spent hours at the drawbridge and took an amazing sail on the bay on a lovely historic sailboat. The owners clearly care about this property and the attention to detail was impressive. If I ever have a reason to return to the area I would surely want to stay on this property.
We had an amazing time at this water front tranquil property. Loved sitting by the fire place at night, and looking at the moon over the water. I came with another family and we were able to spread out and fit 10 people with no problem. The owner was very helpful with any inquiry's and had good suggestions for us as well. The kids played soccer in the huge back yard. I even taught my 8 year old how to ride a bike on the circular driveway I owe you one for that ! They have this great wrap around porch that looks at the cove. I could not think of a better place to recharge and relax. On the way home the kids asked when we can go back. We definitely plan on returning!
This house accommodated my large extended family comfortably. Its layout was conducive to having the kids and adults each enjoy their own space comfortably. The XBox kept the kids entertained for hours while the adults hung out around the fire. We loved it! We used the bikes to go on bike rides over the bridge and spent time in the pool and hot tub as well. We are planning on going back again next year and I cannot recommend a more relaxing and suitable vacation spot for a family of any size! The sunrise over the lake was one of the most exquisite things i have ever seen. The kids are already begging to go back.....
We had a great time with extended family. The layout of the house works wonderfully for multiple families to spread out. The yard was huge and allowed for many games, and the pool allowed us to cool off. It was just far enough from st michaels where it was secluded and quiet, but close enough that we could still enjoy going there to eat and shop. A wonderful house and we will definitely want to use it again when we vacation to st michaels.
Our experience at The Cove was wonderful. We received detailed directions to the quiet location. The home is very spacious; there was no arguing with the kids in our family about who got to sleep where. The kitchens are right next to the dining rooms, which meant that I could keep an eye on what was being snuck into my food! :-) The living room was so comfy that we did not feel guilty just spending time in there and doing nothing, just relaxing. The living room and outside enclosed porch overlook Dun Cove, which we went out to every day. There is a sort of serenity we felt sitting on lawn chairs on the large lawn. And while we saw boats come in and out of the cove, we hardly heard them, which made the scene so much nicer. Waking up early for the sunrise is a MUST!
The house was immaculately clean, spacious, warm and inviting. Even with the breathtaking views, our son spent some time on the Xbox Kinect; who can blame him? There is an outdoor basketball hoop and plenty of children's games, lego and puzzles to keep busy.
Oh, did I mention the pool and the hot tub? The entire family spent time in both and then dried off by sitting outside on those lawn chairs I mentioned. That was fun and relaxing, something we would do daily. There are quaint shops in downtown St. Michaels and nearby stores such as Target not too far away.
This is an ideal location for a large family get together and/or multiple family vacation. We can not wait to go back!
The Cove exceeded our family's expectations as a wonderful vacation destination enjoyed by our large family. From the moment we arrived, there was something for everyone...
fishing off the dock,
sailing out of the cove,
enjoying sunrises while watching osprey,
afternoons in the pool,
shopping in nearby St. Michaels and Queenstown outlets.
kayaking (we rented a kayak in St. Michaels to enjoy for three days while at The Cove),
and even a soccer game on the lawn out front.
We found the owner to be extremely prompt and helpful with all of our needs and questions. The home and grounds were beautiful, well cared for and clean. We would definitely look forward to another vacation at this same property.
We have all come home rested and refreshed after enjoying your beautiful setting. Thank you.
