This is our 5th year renting out our property. After enjoying our cottage with our family for the past 10 + years, we decided to open our place up for others to enjoy...We like to rent our property to responsible, honest, individuals who will respect our home. Again, we take pride in our home. If your looking to have a wonderful, relaxing, quiet getaway, then our cottage is the place for you and your family.
We love the easy quiet of the Chesapeake. It allows our family to truly enjoy each others company. We love to water ski, wake board, tubing, go crabbing or just enjoy hanging out in the water. Ski beach is a very popular area to throw out anchor and mingle and party with other boaters... At the cottage, we enjoy barbecuing and gathering around the campfire ring in the evenings or relaxing in the hot tub .Taking a morning walk or bike ride in the community is another one of the relaxing past times we enjoy. A quiet stroll with my morning coffee overlooking our beach and river cove area is one of my personal favorite morning times. Just absolutely beautiful watching the wildlife and the river come alive...I can't say enough. An absolute must... Come enjoy!
Located just 50 yrds from the river, beach, and dock.. with spectacular views...Boating, water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, and hanging out in the water at our private beach and swimming out to our floating swim platform is always a hit. For the kids, there is bike riding galore. Children also love to fish from the pier. Crabbing comes alive in late June thru November.Fishing from the Pier is also a fovorite for the kids, going over to Elk neck state park and walking the trails, finding the light house and seeing the incredible views of the Chesapeake Bay. Fire works every 4th of July from our private beach. ( in the past few years, almost every weekend some one is firing off fire works over the river and you can see them from our private beach and sometimes right out front of our home too!). Taking a 5 minute drive to Chesapeake City and walking the town. Great breakfast, lunch and diner restaurants all within a short walk along the C &D canal. As stated before, you can exhaust yourself here or just decompress to the max...it's all here for you. Come enjoy!
Impeccable home with all amenities. We had a fantastic stay. Thoroughly enjoyed the hike to Turkey Hill lighthouse & a meal at Woody's crab shack. The kids loved the jacuzzi & roasting marshmallows by the fire. Extremely relaxing stress free weekend getaway!!
A real gem! The cottage was exactly as described and the owners were a pleasure to work with. It was the perfect spot for our weekend girls getaway.
The outside property is very beautiful and thoughtfully laid out. A covered porch for rocking, a hammock, picnic bench, fire pit and hot tub all with beautiful surrounding shrubbery for privacy. Though you are not beach front, you have a view of the water from the back of house, and are a short walk from the community beach. We threw a blanket down at sunset and enjoyed the views there!
The inside of the house is clean and welcoming. It's clear that Mark and Kathy go the extra mile to make their guests feel at home. Towel sets laid out on each bed with a seasonal decoration, a binder with everything you could need in the area, a fire pit already built and ready to use, boxes of toiletries you may have forgotten on each dresser. The little things that make a difference!
The kitchen a nice size for cooking and gathering. The living room big enough for a game night or just relaxing.
The beds and linens were comfortable for the six women in our party. The downstairs bedroom is a queen attached to a full bath. Three of the four beds are up a fairly large flight of stairs in a nicely decorated loft area with lots of windows and a bathroom/ shower. The owners have taken measures to make this safe with lighted steps, sturdy railings and an available baby gate at the top. The steps should definitely be considered if you have elderly, handicapped, or children in your party.
The house is near Chesapeake city, which was a lovely, quaint, town with shopping and eating. There is also a winery just down the road which we will visit next time perhaps.
This was the perfect spot for girlfriends from all over to get together for some R&R! We will definitely be returning and thank Mark and Kathy for making our stay comfortable, relaxing, and accommodating! It was a pleasure working with you and I will be telling people about your cottage !!
Beware their "security deposit" is a sham to get more money. Although the house was cute it is not as perfect as the owners think it is. Apparently there was a check in list somewhere--not on kitchen table as owner claims--we did not see that detailed that we needed to hire a cleaning crew to make the house spotless. We arrived to stained couch and didn't think much of it since it is a beachy type house--should have taken photos--the owner tried to blame this on us! We scooted a coffee table over the creepy basement door so my daughter felt more comfortable and we did not keep walking over it--and they said we had rearranged their furniture. They also said we left an odor in their home--clearly the odor was there when we got there and someone had opened most of the Windows to air it out--and with the week of rain prior and continued rain the entire time we were there everything in the area smelled musty. Also said we soiled carpet--it was a very light almost white carpet and despite taking shoes off and trying to keep kids off, with the wet windy fall weather and leaves blowing outside it was impossible to keep spotless. And the email trying to degrade us to justify keeping our security deposit was uneccessary and hurtful. Bottom line--this couple has unreal view of the immaculance of their property and unrealistic view of normal usage--make your bed, vacuum the floor don't leave a single glass or trash in trashcan! Even after large cleaning fee don't expect your deposit back! God bless, you clearly need it more.
Super clean and very comfortable family home. Everything that you could possibly need for a happy vacation is there! House is bright, full of light with a nice layout with the first floor having a full size bedroom and bath. Very pleasant and attentive owners who check in to make sure all is well. Location is two houses from water, community very friendly, great for walking the dog. Great find on the Eastern Shore!
Mark and Kathy thought of everything! Their cottage was the perfect place for my family to stay for the weekend. It's a peaceful, quiet, beautiful place to stay.
We picked this cottage based on the listing and great pictures the owner included - it is every bit as nice as it looks! Mark takes great care of his property and his customers - he was really easy to communicate with and one step ahead of the entire process. The cottage has all the amenities and is three doors down from a sandy beach on the river with a floating swimming platform. The cottage has a great fire pit setup with chairs near the large hammock. We didn't use the hot tub but it looks great and is in the side yard with some privacy. The bedrooms are all nicely appointed and worked out really well for our family. The kitchen and eating area are generous enough I could see spending lots of time there any time of year. We had zero issues with this rental and recommend it and the owner to everyone. Also note the location allows you to get to the Chesapeake without using the bridge - you can use 95 north out of DC or Baltimore and avoid the worst of the traffic.
Crabbing and fishing can also be done from our community docks and walkways.
