About Gerald Philpott, Proprietor
Most find me to be a fun loving, friendly, funny and a very inclusive considerate individual. Seem to have an innate talent to bring out the best in others and always willing to share great stories and tell tall tales. I tend to be a great listener and totally enjoy everyone's wonderful stories. I am always looking for someone or something to entertain me, because I love to laugh and laugh some more. I still think of Robin Williams and Joan Rivers as my heroes.
Gerald Philpott, Proprietor purchased this House in 1990
Why Gerald Philpott, Proprietor chose Marion Station
We purchased the Kingsbay Mansion, of which Bayhouse is a part, to raise our three children in a rural quaint setting that was controllable, yet offered them an array of outside activities from motorcycles, horses and every water activity imaginable. The Mansion offered room for complete privacy for all of us. For the majority of this decade since our children moved out on their own, we have used the mansion and Bayhouse as a corporate retreat to entertain our client executives to an outstanding paradise retreat destination for themselves and their families. We ask ourselves, why should we ever leave God's perfect paradise setting with every imaginable pleasurable opportunity? Our friends endearingly refer to Kingsbay Mansion as, "Disneyland." We invite you to be our quests and make your own once in a lifetime memories with your family and friends at our wonderful estate setting enjoying the Bayhouse at Kingsbay Mansion. Come be our guests. Thank you!

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
Property was not only beautiful but also clean. Property managers were quick to address any questions we had. The kitchen was a bit cramped but nothing to really gripe about. We did buy a small crab trap but ended up losing it when the rope broke. To our surprise there was a bigger trap tied to the pier. The trap has been in the water for a while but still perfectly functional. We ended catching more large blue crabs. Look for the rope tied at the end of the pier. My wife even got a tour of the mansion run as a B&B. Our two dogs got to run around the whole property which was huge. Perfect relaxing getaway thanks.
These guests were very enjoyable to have stay with us and it appeared they had a great time. They are always welcome here at Kings Bay Mansions Bay House.
Family summer time
My family and I met up for a long weekend in July 2019. We had a great time. The check in process was easy, both Gerry and David were flexible with our arrival time when our schedules changed and we had to move things around a bit.
The house is as shown and described. The kitchen is small but we were able to make meals for 8 adults and two kids without any issues. Pots, pans, dishes, utensils were all available.
We enjoyed chatting with Gerry and David and getting to k is more about the house and area. We also enjoyed just hanging around in the pool as a family for most of the day. Overall great stay!
Gee we hardly even knew you guys were there. Thank you for taking such nice care of our property. You are always welcome at any of the Kingsbay Properties. All the best Jerry
Party space and pool are great combination!
Bedrooms are small but first floor party space makes up for the bedroom size.
Beautiful Secluded Getaway
If you want to be secluded out in the country to rest & relax, then this is for you. Located about 50 minutes from Ocean City or Chincoteague. The nearest town for groceries or restaurants was Crisfield which is 12 minutes away.
We had 6 adults & 2 children staying at the Bayhouse for a week for our annual get-together. We enjoyed the pool, rented kayaks that we used right off the pier, & explored the gardens, toured the mansion, went crabbing, & took a few trips to the beach. The owners Gerry & David are just lovely & we really enjoyed our time with them. They are amazing storytellers & make you feel at home.
Couples would love a romantic weekend get-away here, perfect for spring, summer, or fall.
Beautiful Property, Great House and Proprietors
We rented the house for a family celebration and had a fantastic time, so much so that we are considering making this an annual trip. We spent a lot of time in the warm pool water which gets plenty of sun, and the grounds and the bay view are absolutely beautiful. One of the unique activities the property offers is that we were able to catch some crabs off the dock which was a very fun family activity that everyone enjoyed. The proprietors are without question the best that I have encountered, they are always available to help up but never intrude, they are very outgoing and offer up great suggestions for what to do and where to stay while in the area. The kitchen is very small, but it does have the necessities to cook, and there is also an outdoor grill to use.
