Lovely autumn escape

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for the right place to stay during the Ironman Triathlon and this was it. Our nephew was doing his first Ironman and was able to do training here and relax in preparation for the big day. It is minutes from St. Michaels and an easy 30 minute drive to Cambridge for the triathlon. The property is spacious and affords lots of privacy. Our stay was too short to take full advantage of the facilities... bikes, canoes, etc. But we had time to lounge by the pool (a little cold for swimming on this day) while appreciating the sunset and watching the geese in Barretts Cove.

The house was comfortable and large so everyone had his own space. The kitchen had everything we needed except maybe a blender. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean and well lighted. Even though the nights were unseasonably cold, the house was warm and comfortable. The owners were helpful and friendly. It was clear that they care deeply about the property and hope to make each visit memorable for their guests.

This is the perfect place for small family reunions and weekend social events for friends.

Columbus Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at this lovely, interesting home! As others have mentioned, the photos do not do it justice. There is a lot of space to spread out, relax, read and play games. Children and adults alike enjoyed the kayaks, canoe and rowboat. Thanks Nancy!

Wonderful Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The house is lovely with great character. Even better than the house though is the property. It sits on a large parcel, almost like a peninsula, overlooking the water. The kids had a great time in the pool, which also has water views. St. Michael's is just a short drive away. We all enjoyed our stay very much.

Gem of a vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Watch Goose Farm exceeded all of our expectations. Wonderful, idiosyncratic home right on the bay. The house is stocked with just about every item you could need; crab pots, kayaks, pool toys, a full library for rainy days, bicycles, cookware for home cooking, etc etc. The property is ideally located on the water and short driving distance from both the village center of St. Michaels and Easton. Best word to describe the property would be 'idyllic'. Be aware that cell phone coverage is almost nonexistent; bust out a good book and sit on the dock waiting for crabs to crawl into your traps for dinner. Highly recommended.

90th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

While living in MD I had visited St. Michaels and decided that it would be a great place to have my Dad's 90th Birthday. There was a mix of adults and children. All I can say is this vacation was beyond my expectations. My Dad and I decided that this was one of the best vacations we ever had My Father uses a cane to walk and there were not a lot of steps and he had no troublr getting around. Nancy and her brother were very helpful. The pool was wonderful and very clean, and the house was beautiful. We have already started talking about our vacation next year and think St Michaels would be a great place to go.

Family with adult children and friends

  • 5 of 5

What is not to love about Watch Goose Farm?? John, John and Nancy were ultra gracious and generous with their time and hospitality . This was a really tranquil stay where we tuned into the quiet, the views , the library and the character and history of the house/farm. We are an active family so biked, kayaked , swam-- and read --to oblivion .
