About the property

Secluded waterfront vacation rental outside of St. Michaels.

A charming historic farmhouse and updated barn with a rustic soul and luxury finishes are the perfect spot for your vacation on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay.

Surrounded by water and farmland, Jane Lowe estate is a very private property that will comfortably sleep 12+ guests. The 3,500-square-foot barn and 2,100-square-foot historic farmhouse are situated on a six-acre stretch on the banks of Harris Creek, nestled between St. Michaels and Tilghman Island.

Discover the serenity of the Chesapeake Bay, watching blue herons, bald eagles and osprey from your front window. Lounge by the 50-ft swimming pool (open until the end of September), fish, crab or sun from the floating dock, kayak, play lawn games and watch the sun set from a private beach.

The houses have everything you need: areas to lounge, nooks to read, a massive game room with a pool table, foosball table, poker table, bar, other casino games and board games. It's easy to eat, drink and entertain with the help of a professional wolf stove and flattop, barbecues, patios, balconies and a sun room.

If you venture out, lovely St. Michaels and the surrounding areas have so much to explore.

Tilghman Day Trip with Friends

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time and both homes were fabulous. We would recommend staying here if you need lots of space and enjoy spending time on the water. Heather, (the owner) was extremely helpful and easily reached. We really enjoyed our stay!

Woodbridge, VA

The property was beautiful and secluded (quiet)

  • 4 of 5

The description of the property was very accurate. It would have been helpful to have floor plans of the two homes for planning purposes (who sleeps where). The location was very quiet and restful. The pool was the best pool we have ever had (from the kids).

A very welcome and immensely enjoyable welcome basket was waiting when we arrived.

There were some areas that I would be working on as the owners from a maintenance standpoint, But i do realize there is little time when the property is in use for maintenance to occur.

The few minor problems be had were quickly addressed with profuse apologies from the owners.

We took a cruise on the Patriot and heard about the history and culture of the area - very enjoyable and entertaining.

We bought Crabs at Chesapeake Landing - very delicious, and ate crab and other sea food at The Crab Claw, also delicious and slightly pricey. We were able to catch a few crabs off the dock, some of which we could have cooked and eaten, but we just released them.The four kayaks that are on the property were in use many hours.

All in all we would recommend as well as consider returning to the property another time.

Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Fantastic Sunsets & Great Spaces & Cooking

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to celebrate Thanksgiving with friends and family. We rented both homes and had the luxury of two kitchens to cook in to make a feast for the Thanksgiving meal. Fireplaces add warmth and charm in both houses. The group followed the amazing light that hits the property -- breakfast and lunch in the converted barn and dinner in the farmhouse to view the amazing sunsets. Unexpected warm weather allowed for long walks and kayaking. Highly recommend the property for larger groups -- enough room to have spaces to socialize in, but also small spaces to read a book in quiet. All in all a terrific place to decompress and enjoy friends and family.

Easily the best home I've ever rented anywhere

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely spectacular. The pool is great, both homes are really nice + historic, and it feels very private.

We had an AMAZING time and hope to be able to rent from Heather again.
