About the property

Secluded and peaceful waterfront estate outside of St. Michaels.

A converted barn with luxury finishes is the perfect spot for your vacation on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay.

Surrounded by water and farmland, the Jane Lowe barn is a 3,500-square-foot private property. The home is situated on a three-acre stretch on a protected inlet, 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. Cozy up and watch the birds and fish, crab or sun from the floating dock. Kayak, play lawn games and watch the sun set from the beach or living room. In the summer, cool off in the 50-ft swimming pool (open until the end of September and shared with the farmhouse on the same piece of land).

The house has everything you need; areas to lounge, nooks to read, a massive game room with a pool table, poker table, foosball, and board games, flat screen TVs for shows, movies and satellite WIFI for internet and four large bedrooms for 6+ people to sleep comfortably. Eat, drink and entertain with the help of a professional Wolf stove and flattop, a barbecue, decks, and balconies.

Downtown St. Michaels and all of its attractions are very close, as is Easton.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with four adults and two kids. Heather was so easy to work with, and the waterfront view was beautiful. Would definitely go back.

Beautiful Property! Perfect for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The whole property was awesome. A perfect place for our family to spend time together and relax. Having the bay view was my favorite part. Nothing beats the living room view looking out the window or sitting on the front porch with coffee in the morning. We had so much fun on the kayaks and got to watch the sunset every night. The pool was huge and wonderful. Lots of chairs and some really cool floats. There was plenty of places to sleep and so nice that there were so many towels and toiletries. Our family enjoyed the game room every night. St. Michael's is close enough that there is a place to shop and eat out if you want but far enough away that you feel like you are on a true getaway. Only complaint is that wifi isn't great if you don't have Verizon but we knew that going into it and it was kind of nice to be "unplugged." Heather and her family were so accommodating and sweet. They responded so quickly to our inquiries and really made us feel at home. Was pretty much the perfect week. Thank you!

Excellent Home, get away and experience

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the home, there is plenty to do, 50 foot pool, kayaks, and lots of quiet time.

Also the town of St. Michaels was a 15 min drive from the home, in case we needed to go into town or needed to re-stock.

The host was reachable, flexible and friendly.

There were service people like lawn mowers, pest control, pool cleaners who came in and out, and because of that we felt a little lacked of privacy, but overall, its a small annoyance compared to the whole fantastic experience, so I'm only writing this for the host to improve (not complaining).

Away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

The barn has all the modern conveniences you would need. The game room was a big hit with the family. We used the kayaks everyday. The Wolf stove was awesome to cook our meals on. Heather was great to work with. Our only complaint.....can't think of one! Loved this place!

Would love to return!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic long weekend in this location/house. It is so peaceful out in Wittman, and the house was cozy for watching movies, looking out on the water from the comfy couch, or using any of the wonderful bedrooms. We didn't use the game room, but did play one of the games we brought with us (Rummikub) on the large dining table downstairs. The host was amazing...she noticed that I left my Kindle (!) and mailed it to me. The service of the whole experience was top-notch...they provided a lot of the toiletries that you would not find at a 5-star hotel (hello...women's shaving cream and razors!), the kitchen had a lot of the staples you would need, but would not want to buy for a short stay. The internet was a little spotty for streaming movies, but they do have DirecTV, so just plan accordingly. Highly recommend!

Great place to get away from busy life

  • 5 of 5

Met family at the house for Labor Day Weekend 2016. The house and property met all my expectations! The house was clean and had all the cooking utensils/ware that we needed for the entire weekend. Large TVs in the living room and game room were great for watching the opening weekend of college football. The best part was the outdoor area. It was peaceful, quiet, and relaxing. I've also never seen such beautiful sunsets as the ones we watched from the dock each evening. I would definitely go back again!
