Our Cottage is available for SHORT AND LONG TIME RENTAL.
Our Home/Cottage is located on a double lot, on a nice quiet cul da sac street, beach block, and just three houses or say 50 yards off the Bohemia River with magnificent relaxing, wonderful and decompressing views.
We have three different private access areas to our community land and our private community beach. (C Pics.) and Yes, we do have water views of the River from our driveway,front yard, as well as looking from the windows form the back of the house. Please see our google map for a visual detail .. Our community is a quiet, relaxing community, so if you're looking for a place to unwind, you will find everything you need for a wonderful relaxing stay in our water oriented friendly community. Extra large lot, with central air, electric and propane heat, spacious kitchen, vaulted ceilings w/ 3 skylights in living room; a true summertime cottage decor and feel. Ceiling fans in every room. The neighborhood is quiet and relaxing, slow pace, with old time friendly charm. And it's all within an hour of Philadelphia.
Our cottage has an upper floor add on. See pics. Most of the interior lighting are on dimmers for that perfect atmosphere at any hour. The kitchen is extra large for a cottage, with all the amenities, dishwasher, micro, toaster, coffee machine, electric range, etc..see pics. The living room and the 2nd floor bedrooms have vaulted ceilings as well for a wonderful spacious feel. This second story bedroom is a great room itself with a cathedral ceiling.

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!
This is a beautiful home near the water. My granddaughters loved the upstairs and going to the beach. I would recommend this home and you could not ask for better service from the owners. They made sure we were happy with our stay. The area is peaceful and relaxing.
We had a great time at the Cottage! The house was perfect, set in a quiet neighborhood. Mark was more than accommodating with the usage of his boat slip for our boat. This allowed us to spend many days out on the Bohemia River tubing and swimming with the kids and the dock was only a short walk to and from the house. Our boys enjoyed swimming at the community beach area and relaxing in the hot tub. We spent the mornings enjoying our coffee on the front porch and our evenings walking or riding the bikes around the neighborhood. We are looking forward to planning our next trip!
This is a great house in a great location.
It is a bit secluded, so you'll need to drive a few miles at meal time if you like the same places I like. The kitchen was set up with everything you need to feel at home and cook your own meals if you are so inclined.
The seclusion is a plus, as the environment is extremely relaxing. The entire Chesapeake Bay / Maryland Eastern Shore farmland contrast is full of beautiful scenery, peaceful living, and contemplative nature experiences.
The bass fishing was quite good.
The home is very comfortable. It is quite easy to loll around on the comfy sofas, or to take coffee in the Adirondack chairs on the porch.
The place has a lot of amenities: outdoor fireplace, hot tub, hammock, rocking chair, grill, etc.
TVs were quite good too.
The hosts were perfect. They gave me everything I needed in the way of attention, but were not obtrusive in the least.
The deposit was refunded within only 3 days.
I would most definitely stay in the place again, and I think it is fairly priced.
The cottage was lovely and very clean. It was unique in layout and cute in that way. Mark was very attentive and took care of our every need. We would certainly rent it again if we come to that area again.
The owner's response was really nice and organize as well. I highly recommend the house and I definitely consider renting it again in the future even winter season.
We stayed at Mark's Cottage for a week of work. It is so nice to get away from the Holiday Inn's and Hampton Inn's and spend somewhere like feels like home. We really enjoyed the entire stay and appreciate everything Mark did for us to make sure we have a comfortable week.
Crabbing and fishing can also be done from our community docks and walkways.
