St. Michaels House Rental Photos and Description

Waterfront house, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 adults 2 children)

All listings becoming a blur? Some distinguishing features of the BOAT HOUSE:

Location is a couple of miles from the center of St. Michaels (Museum and Inn at Perry Cabin)- close enough to bike into town and just far enough for privacy. New salt water pool is large with teak pool loungers. Beautiful house with spectacular views from almost every room. Bikes, kayaks, fresh linen and bath towels all included in rental rate.

Thinking vacation should be... watching sail boats from the pool, kayaking to a nearby island with sand beach, biking into town for ice-cream or napping on the hammock.

The beautiful house is a short bike ride to museum/light house, restaurant, quaint shops, ice-cream parlors, cafes, bistros, brewery and winery. Bikes (including tandem bike- for- two) and kayaks (adult and kids size) are available.

The Boat' house is on 6 acres of wooded retreat located right on the the Chesapeake Bay (San Domingo Creek) with a new private pool (18x36 ft) with spa -opens memorial day to September (Labor day). Spa heating option available with additional utility fee.

The layout of the house makes you feel like you are outdoors in almost every room overlooking the water and beautiful tall pine trees. View of amazing sunrise from house and dock every morning. House comfortably sleeps 8 adults and 2 children.

Whether lounging by the pool overlooking the bay, crabbing on the dock, kayaking, biking, exploring the 6 acres of woods, -there is something for everyone of all ages.

About The Owner

A nearby escape from the DC area- to detox from electronics and be more with face time with family... is always good

Why The Owner chose Maryland

A waterfront home inside the town of St. Michaels is the most ideal. A perfect and close escape for a romantic get-a-way, relaxing retreat or entertaining family and friends. Shorter trip. Longer vacation.

Less than a couple of hours from home and just a short bikeride into town for ice-cream. Perfect.

What makes this house unique

Being right on the water from sunrise to sunset..... savoring the good life. Swimming just a few steps from house makes the best vacation

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for an excellent stay. My husband and I truly enjoyed ourselves in this incredible home. The view is fantastic.

Great location, beautiful property, picturesque town of St. Michael's!

  • 3 of 5

Although the property and location were beautiful, upon walking up to the front door and walking into the house there was a very strong odor of of mustiness and mildew. It helped when we opened all the windows, but we couldn't leave them open continuously because of the cold and the rain. It would have been nice if the house had been aired out prior to our arrival. Also, with the amount of money per night that we were spending, it was annoying that we had to go to the store to buy toilet paper, paper towels, etc. I would have thought that would be provided. We only ran the dishwasher once when we left, and there was no way I was going to buy a whole box of dishwashing soap for one load of dishes. So I used what was in the kitchen even though paperwork said we had to provide our own. The other thing was one of the bedrooms and bath was only accessible by walking through another bedroom. If this was stated in the listing, I missed it. It was awkward to say the least. Other than that, the house was comfortable, well maintained and we enjoyed our weekend there.

We wish we could have enjoyed more of the amenities provided, but the bad weather prevented that from happening. We had a great lunch at the Inn and delicious dinners at Theo's and Ava's.

Owner's Response: Steve: I am sorry about toilet paper as we tell our cleaner to stock at least a roll in the bathrooms prior to arrival. I will have to check with her that is done. As for the other household supplies (napkins and detergent) we do ask the guests to bring. We will look into the mustiness upon arrival but sometimes when it is really humid that happens. We are glad you found the the house beautiful and comfortable and enjoyed the town. We thank you for your comments will always try to improve. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Beautiful, quiet, spacious house

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a girls weekend getaway without husbands and children at this beautiful house. The pictures on the site adequately represent the beautiful rooms, it just doesn't show how expansive the house really is. The place was incredibly clean and spacious and the amenities offered were outstanding for a rental. There were 5 beds (for 4 rooms) and all the beds were bigger than twins (which was an added bonus). The pool is a nice oasis, the screened in porch with large table and large deck added to the experience and is where we spent a majority of our time. We particularly loved that the owners include bicycles, kayaks, and life vests in the rental. We enjoyed SO much time in the kayaks on the water. And, I can't adequately capture how beautiful and peaceful it is out there. Once you venture out a bit you see how vastly huge the area of water is (not just a small area to kayak) and yet how quiet it is. There were a few boaters here and there but for the most part, we had the water all to ourselves. That is a huge bonus for us b/c it was not overcrowded at all like other places we have been.

While we did not have children with us, this would be a great place for them! There is so much to do and a lot of space (inside and out). The house is stocked with kid bikes/life vests, kayaks and games/books. It would be very hard for a family to not have everything they need here.

This was our first time to St. Michael's in general and the area itself is beautiful and quaint. We were there 2 nights and people at the restaurants recognized us by day two. We are so grateful that this house is super close to downtown St Michaels' so that we can experience downtown yet stay in woods/by the water where it is serene/quiet.

Did I mention how peaceful it is? :) We are looking forward to going back next Summer!

Perfect location for a relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded all of our expectations. There was plenty of space for sleeping, eating and relaxing. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms up-to-date. The well-appointed kitchen, grill and screened in porch were ideal for cooking and enjoying meals together. (We actually had reservations in St. Michaels that we canceled because we had such a great time making dinner at the house.) The pool was perfect for lounging/swimming and we had fun trapping crabs off the dock, which was also a wonderful spot for early morning coffee. We didn't take advantage of the kayaks or bikes, but having the option to do so was wonderful. The proximity to St. Michaels was convenient for an ice cream run and window shopping. The owner responded to questions promptly. It was my first VRBO experience and I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful location and perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We had a spectacular time at this property. The location and access to the bay right in front of us was the highlight. The pool is just great. Hot tub for the adults at night. Our kids enjoyed waking up, running to the kayaks and getting out to explore. Mid mornings were spent playing in the pool. Lunch in town with a wonderful choice of culinary delights and we're from NY/NJ so picky. Lazy afternoons in the sun again or shopping and end of day bbq on the deck and the hot tub. Overall 5 stars. Bedroom set up was ideal for a family of 5 with our 3 kids able to be in adjoining rooms. Good for little kids and parents too.

House is okay!

  • 3 of 5

Good location, and great outdoor space. There was an ant infestation while we were there (which is being professionally treated). The pool is only cleaned only on Saturdays, so if it's dirty on a Wednesday, you're out of luck! The house is quaint, but old. Although there are four bedrooms, there are only 2 small bathrooms.

Owner's Response: Jun 16 at 12:18 PM Luckily, the ant issue was successfully professionally treated and the next guest immediately after did not have any issues with the ant or pool which is serviced and cleaned weekly. If a storm comes in overnight, there may be pine needles and debris that blows in the pool which you can remove with the net. The charm of St. Michaels is the natural surroundings and historic homes dating back to 1600's. This is house was built in 1970's so "old" is relative. The kitchen and bathrooms were all updated in 2012-and we are considering adding on another bathroom.

St. Michael's boat house

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our weekend getaway with the girls. The home was clean and bathrooms updated. Too early for pool weather, but the location on the water could not be better.
