Overview

Chesapeake Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Family Getaway Spot ideal for Enjoying all the Eastern Shore has to offer! Pet Friendly

Bring your gear - on over 25 acres and 800' of south east shoreline Indian Fields is set up for an active vacation. Fishing, crabbing, boating, kayaking and swimming in the private waterfront pool is just for starters. Indian Field's front porch facing the river is perfect for the family crab feast. Bring a bocce ball or croquet set - the front lawn is perfect for a tournament while those less inclined relax in the shade. A pick up game of hoops on the waterside basketball court (single backboard) keeps everyone in shape. Less than 3 minutes from the property check out Horn's Point Kids Bay Adventure Program where the kids pre-k through 8 can ride their bikes to Horn Point and explore the Bay through outdoor adventures, kayaking, canoeing and more. Looking to be a little less "earthy" but still want to be outdoors grab a tee time at Clearview at Horn's Point which is also less than 2 miles from the property. The par 72/73 course plays to just over 6,450 yards. Grab a drink or dinner waterside at Bobby's, the oysters are local. Indian Fields is over 3,500 square feet and sympathetically restored to its classic 1920s style just this year. Glossy wood floor planks remind you of how homes used to be built. Indian Fields is perfectly set up for one or two families with a cozy "cousins bunk room" for late night whispering while the grown-ups enjoy an evening on the front porch facing the Choptank. Trust us the kids will be tired at day's end and you will have some coveted time to relax. Forget those crowded beaches and noisy boardwalks and come to Indian Fields. A vacation where the kids can let the screen door hit them on their way out and you don't have to worry about getting stuck in traffic, unless moving a turtle off of the road on a bike ride constitutes gridlock!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent a week at Indian Fields with four generations of family. This is a property for nature lovers and for a quiet get away. We fished, crabbed, swam in the river, played board games, swam in the salt water pool. The kids loved it. The adults were able to relax and enjoy the view. We saw a bald eagle, baby deer, skates swimming under the dock, lots of crabs and fish, frogs, osprey. Everytime we needed something, the house seemed to have it. An old farmhouse, lovingly restored with tons of character.

Gorgeous view

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed the week of the fourth of July-we had a wonderful time, our grandchildren were kept busy swimming and fishing off the dock.The view of the river was breathtaking and the home was very clean.The owner was very friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing time to spend with your family-this is a good pick.

Reviewer Comments:

This old charmer was quaint and the view was great. Out morning coffee gazing at the sunrise over the Choptank River was great. The private dock is perfect for water sports/fishing/crabbing. The salt water pool was well maintained.

Towels, bed linens, and kitchen utensils/dishes/pottery were all provided. The gas grill was convenient. The dishwasher, washing machine and dryer were outdated and not working to potential. The remote location was inconvenient, grocery stores were some distance away.

At a cost of $5000, this rental desperately requires some MODERN updates. The lack of water pressure and hot water reserve in the bathrooms made one very cranky, especially after a long day of activity. Yes, we certainly took turns showering and made sure the washing machine and dishwasher were not running simultaneously. The master bath windows were not dressed for privacy. Trash cans were not provided in bathrooms. The first floor bath had a hole in its window. Mgmnt was informed but there was no follow up.

The bed linens had red stains. Mgmnt response was "was it the bed sheets or comforters?" Everything should be clean, no questions asked. The couch cushions smelled funky.

Trash collection cans provided were too small. We resorted to storing trash adjacent to the cans. Plus, there was no outlet for recycling so, trash filled up even faster because we were three families.

Though there was internet connection, wifi was extremely slow.

Overall, disappointment describes Indian Fields. Though the grounds were well maintained, the interior was not. As a costly rental, it needs some modern updates. Kitchen and baths should be updated with up-to-date appliances and fixtures. The plumbing system needs an overhaul. The linens should ALL be clean and fresh. The sofas (and cushions) should be steam cleaned or replaced. Trash collection must be revised.

Manager responded on 9/1/2014:

We are sorry you had these concerns and agree this rental is definitely for those who value the grounds, view, privacy and feel of an older home vs. a newer rental. Some of your concerns are easy fixes (window treatment, repair, couch cleaning, more trash cans). Some are systemic with the home -

Reviewer Comments:

Our family of 10 had a most enjoyable vacation at Indian Fields. The view was incredible and we enjoyed many cool and breezy evenings on the porch overlooking the water. The pool was nice but not heated so it was chilly (thanks to a cooler-than-normal summer) but the kids didn't mind! The little private beach was a huge hit with young and old for floating on rafts, building sand castles, and collecting sea glass. So peaceful with wide open views to die for!

The owner was very friendly and accommodating and genuinely wants guests to enjoy themselves and the property (he encouraged to make use of whatever was in the unlocked garage including several big crab traps). His grandchildren are co-owners and you might see them maintaining the property throughout your stay. They are very hard-working and polite.

However, we were troubled to learn -- mere days before our arrival no less -- that this property has limited wifi (not spotty -- we expect that on the Eastern Shore -- LIMITED meaning after a certain undisclosed amount, it would be shut off), window A/C units (but none in the kitchen which got HOT even though the outside temps were in the low 80's), and well water with poor water pressure (meaning we had to stagger our showers, laundry, dish washing). None of these were deal breakers but we would have appreciated being informed of them earlier in the process and they were certainly inconvenient. The toilets clogged frequently as a result of the poor water pressure and two of the showers were useless due to such low water pressure (it was impossible to rinse out shampoo). We'd also suggest providing a few more pillows. Each bed had one per guest (which is fine for twins/ kids but a queen bed should have more than two pillows!).

Tip: the white fence, stables, and trees on the way up to the house make stunning backdrops for family photos.

Reviewer Comments:

Outstanding vacation at Indian Fields! Pool was wonderful and owner guaranteed shade with 4 umbrellas. Kids loved the basketball court and fishing was plentiful. Evening Frisbee in yard overlooking water was reminiscent of the days before electronic devices! Kitchen was well stocked and very usable. Window air conditioners were more than sufficient. Hottest room in the house was kitchen which was manageable with fan. Great views relaxing in comfortable chairs on deck - felt like George Washington on the porch at Mt. Vernon. Lovely home. Only concern is that older folks might not want to stay in attic (a/c very effective up there BTW) due to steepness of steps. 3 very comfortable 2nd floor bedrooms to choose from! Peaceful and memorable family together time!

Reviewer Comments:

If you want to "get away from it all", this is the place to do it. Each of the three bedrooms on the second floor is large and has a private bath. The two bedrooms on the top floor share a bath. The main floor has a huge living room, big dining room, and very ample and well-stocked kitchen with pots and pans big enough to cook for the number of people the house can hold. The outside dining area faces east, so it's a great place to have dinner, even in the dog days of summer,as the house shades it and the breezes blow through. The salt water pool is delightful and there's even a small beach along the Choptank river where our daughter's dog could swim and the grandchildren enjoyed collecting sea glass. We had so much fun on site that we only left to go to the grocery and fish markets!

Other reviews noted that there wasn't enough flatware, so we brought eight additional place settings and donated them to the house. As long as they remain, there should be plenty. Other reviews also noted a lack of water pressure. This has been corrected by the owner and water pressure was never an issue. With nine adults and three children, we did manage to use the water faster than the well could replenish itself one afternoon but, within an hour, the water was back to full volume and we learned to space out our showers better throughout the day.

The owner lives next door and came over to great us upon arrival and to thank us for coming prior to our departure. Other than that, we only saw him when he mowed one day and a few times in passing as we went to the markets.

Final note- this house is clean. It's clean into the corners of the bathrooms and even the corners of the closets. There was no noticeable dust anywhere and we didn't feel the need to wash the dishes before using them for the first time.

One of the oldest towns in Maryland, this small town sits on the banks of the Choptank River. About an hour from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, Dorchester County boasts famous residents such as Harriet Tubman, the most famous of Underground Railroad 'conductors' who led dozens of enslaved people to freedom, and Sharpshooter Annie Oakley. Also, more Maryland governors are from this area than any other with the exception of Baltimore City! Explore Cambridge and surrounding Dorchester County's long history as an agricultural and canning powerhouse, and their boatbuilding and maritime heritage—there are several self-guided walking tours, driving tours, river excursions and museums to help you experience the stories and history. Called the 'Heart of Chesapeake Country' because of it's location and shape, there are 1700 miles of shoreline surrounding 39 percent of Maryland's wetlands in the area, providing endless opportunities for kayaking, biking, and exploring.
