About Mary Martin

Deal Island is going to be our retirement location. We love the slow pace and awesome beauty of the island, wetlands, wildlife, birds. Of course the oysters and crabs are quite tasty too!

Why Mary Martin chose Chesapeake Bay

Deal Island is amazing! I love it here. I grew up vacationing on the eastern shore, Deal Island is a dream come true. We love to get off the grid and get on 'island time' It is off the beaten path and a wonderful place to relax, unwind and enjoy family and friends. Once we are here we hate to leave. The locals are friendly and helpful. Of course if you desire more 'action' there are many local sites within driving distance to see including a trip to Ocean City or Princess Anne or Chincoteague

What makes this cottage unique

This is a wonderful place to enjoy some quality time with the family. There are so many awesome things to do on Deal Island, take a stroll to the bridge and observe the waterlife, walk down the primitive marsh road to our private beach(don't forget your muck shoes), load up the canoe and paddle to the beach, spend the day on the beach and watch the sunset, hire the Kingfisher II and catch your dinner, watch the local crabbers or oystermen to bring in their fresh catch, buy a bushel and cook up the most amazing meal you have ever eaten. There are so many wonderful things to do on Deal Island.

Good Time on Deal Island

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice house, a little old but quaint. The rooms were a little small. However, we had everything we needed and all in all we had a very good time. The area was also great. We caught fish and crabs and had a great seafood dinner. We used the kayaks provided and they were fun too. We enjoyed the beers at Arby's bar at the end of Deal Island, and they had a country/rock band playing outside in the parking lot on Friday night. We also drove to Chincoteague Island, another fun experience. We have very good memories of our time on Deal Island.

Perfect getaway for the family

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very lovely week, alternating days with the private beach (the big canoe fits 4 easily) and Assateague. We just missed a rocket launch at Wallops, but enjoyed our visit there too. And, we spent a drizzly day in the cedar swamps at Furnace Town which was lovely. My only recommendation would be a wagon trailer for the canoe to portage it to the bridge. I could throw it over my head, but that wasn't easy, and I would have appreciated an easier option. Thank you for s lovely vacation

Great family get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the best 4th of July's as a family. The cottage was perfect for our family of 6. It is clean and have everything we needed. We enjoyed being close to the beaches one we kayaked daily to, the other beach we drove to at the end of the island 1 mile. We put our jet skis in the water and collected shells.

The locals and owner are very friendly and we learned a lot about deal islands history thru them to get the full experience. The stars and sunset are AMAZING.

The cottage has all the necessity. We would suggest a larger dinning table and seating for 6 not 4 we were a bit cramped. Also maybe some Adirondack chairs for around the fire pit. We had some great nights out there making smores. ( bring bug spray) And I think a picnic table would be a great addition. There is 2 kayaks and a great canoe we used and loved.

We made friends with the neighbors and they even brought us fresh steamed crabs that were amazing. You can fish and crab right off the beach or bridge across from the house. And look forward to another vacation there soon.

Perfect Getaway for Nature Lovers!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and included everything we needed for our sizable family. The locals and owners were friendly, fantastic, and went WAY beyond our expectations. We visited Assateague Island, Chincoteague Island, Salisbury Zoo, and the antique malls in Berlin, MD - all within an hour's drive. We loved the private beach! The sunsets are unbelievable. The is the ultimate escape from the rush of modern life. It is good to know that people and places like this still exist in the world! We will be back!

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We planned a family vacation and had 4 adults and 4 younger children, and we enjoyed our time on Deal Island. It is such a quaint, quiet and friendly area. Overall the house was great, we had a few little issues, but the owner was very helpful and so was the caretaker. We would highly recommend coming and experiencing Deal Island in all its beauty.
