Overview

Chesapeake Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Weddings, Bass Tournaments, or Just to Relax & Have Fun!

Plan your perfect getaway here, in Elk Neck, approximately eight miles south of the town of North East, MD.

Attending a wedding at Elk Manor Winery? We are very close- about a 3-minute drive!

Bass Tournament? We have had quite a few bass fishermen stay here, as we have parking for trucks and boats and we are about 8 miles from Anchor Marina.

We have a unique property here, along the Elk River, set back in a quiet cove, with creeks on each side and a beautiful view of the River.

Watch the Eagles and Osprey soaring above the creek looking for their next meal! There are also plenty of Blue Heron, Geese, and Ducks. In the evenings, you may see deer playing along the shoreline.

The home is completely furnished and includes a fully-stocked kitchen- you just need to bring the food!

We have all the linens and towels you will need and plenty of blankets and pillows, too, and all beds are freshly made in time for your arrival, so you don't need to do a thing!

We love our Guests and I just want to say a huge "Thank You!!" to everyone who has chosen to stay here at The Woods and thank you for all of your Guestbook entries and Online Reviews (and if you never got around to leaving one here, it's never too late!). You all are so awesome!!! As you all know, Gene and Steve and I, work so hard here and it has been such a blessing to have had such wonderful Guests who treat our home as their own and to just see how much fun you have here, is just the best and makes all of our hard work so worth it!! And, incase any of you are reading this, the bridge is finally fixed and it's great!! Now it will be so much faster to get to Turkey Point for that beautiful walk to the Lighthouse!

Thank you for checking out my page! Can't wait to meet you!

About Kim Olah

My name is Kim and I am married to Steve. I own this rental property with my brother, Gene. We inherited the property from our Grandmother.

Steve and I have 4 kids; ages 26, 22, 19, and 15. Steve is a Systems Engineer and my main job is keeping this property going and I am also caregiver to my other Grandmother.

Gene works hard, both with his Masonry business and here on the property. He has one son who is 21. Gene enjoys being on the water in his bass boat or kayak. He also loves deep-sea fishing and traveling to Assateague Island.

Kim Olah purchased this house in 2012

Why Kim Olah chose Chesapeake Bay

This beautiful property has been in my family since 1918 when my Grandfather moved here from NY with his parents; he was 5 years old. My Dad grew up here, and then Gene and I grew up here as well. And we love it so much, we are still here, on the property (so we are very close if you need anything during your stay).

When we were growing up, our Grandparents rented the property for summer rentals and those are our favorite childhood memories, so we are so excited to be bringing that back!

What makes this house unique

One of my favorite things is being out on the water. It is so serene and I believe it's the most beautiful, peaceful place. I leave my stress behind as I kayak and enjoy the summer breeze and the sunshine and all of the wildlife- it is truly awesome!

So pleasant!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I went for the weekend to celebrate my birthday. Kim and Steve were absolutely amazing - they even surprised me with a cake and a balloon! they were extremely helpful, and very responsive to all of our needs. We took the rowboat out for a picnic to the "beach," the kayaks out for a spin through the creek, and ate at the crab place in town. It was the perfect weekend getaway, and we hope to go back soon!

Better then Advertised

  • 5 of 5

We had a tremendous stay at Kim's place. She couldn't have been nicer to deal with and to meet. The house and contents were better then advertised. The location was just beautiful. There were 7 of us and there was plenty of room for sleeping and just gathering after a long day of fishing. We enjoyed it so much we are booked for another stay next month. The only thing that would have made it better was a fire ring so you could sit out at night with a fire and watch the sunset.

Awesome! Very relaxing quiet vacation spot nestled in the woods, with a beautiful water view!

  • 4 of 5

We chose this place for a Girls Getaway for 3 of us and were pleasantly surprised at all it has to offer! It's a great spot to enjoy birdwatching (we saw bald eagles, cormorant, red-winged blackbird, least terns, mallard ducks, geese, blue herons, ospreys, etc, etc) and a short walk to paddleboating and kayaking. The house was very clean and comfortable and has all the amenities. The owner was very welcoming and the hospitality was unsurpassed!! We truly felt like we were on vacation for a long time, in just the 3 days we were there. We drove into Chesapeake City and Northeast for a nice stroll and ate out at very good restaurants! We can't thank you enough!!!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! We visited baltimore and Philadelphia, a bit of a drive but great to come back to relax. We also spent a day kayaking and paddle boating which was so fun. The local town also had some great restaurants.

I hadn't realized there were other homes nearby but it still felt like you were away from it all, very quiet and peaceful. The house was fresh and very clean. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They even had toys, highchair and a pack n play all set up for my kids. We had a lovely vacation here!!!

We love this place

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here, and it was lovely. It is spotless, comfortable, and roomy. Kim and Steve are great hosts who told us about the activities in town that they knew we would enjoy. We will be back again for sure.
