About the property

Water views from every room 1 bedroom cottage/4 bedroom house/huge gameroom

It's not difficult to understand why many young couples have chosen this estate as a site for their wedding. In fact many of our couples have chosen to stay in this cottage for their honeymoon after their wedding. So obviously you are not here to get hitched but it is the perfect vacation spot.

Let your cares drop away as the waves gently soothe you to sleep. Relax on your own private sandy beach, enjoy nature as deer, osprey, eagles, and turkey visit the property. Fish from the dock and seasonally enjoy this Garden of Eatin' as there are figs, raspberries, blackberries, grapes, apples, pears and chestnuts for the picking.

About Cindy and Dave Ferguson

We have lovingly renovated the main house and cottage with an eye towards quality and detail. We make every effort to accomodate and cater to our guests every need making for a memorable vacation.

Cindy and Dave Ferguson purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Cindy and Dave Ferguson chose Chesapeake Bay

The Eastern Shore is one of Marylands best kept secrets. Just sixty minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Washington and Baltimore to your private vacation located a few miles outside of the city limits of downtown Cambridge, 'The Jewel of the Eastern Shore'. Come by land, sea,or fly in to our local airport. Bring your boat, bring your horse, bring your golf clubs, and prepare yourself for a weekend or week of fun and relaxation.

This completely renovated 1000 square foot cottage located on a private 27 acre estate is nestled a mere 200 feet from the banks of the Choptank River. Whether you have had a full day of shopping and antiquing in nearby Easton, Oxford, or St. Michaels or are tired from a day of golf at the country club less than two miles from the home, or just lazing away the day on your private secluded beach the sounds of the river lapping on the shoreline will gently massage your worries away as you sleep.

This century old estate offers our guests exclusive privacy unlike your typical beachgoers. Plan however to have plenty of visitors during your stay. Horns Point is abundant with wildlife. Families of deer tend to the fallen fruits in our orchard, while restless squirrels scurry collecting nuts for their long winters nap. The American bald eagles fly high above their osprey relatives, all looking for a snack to feed their brood. Venture out for an early morning walk or run on this deserted dead end back road and you may run into our masked neighbors as they make their way back to their daytime burrow or amazed by the aerobatic maneuvers of the flying Delmarva fox squirrels, or follow the rattata sound until you reach the location of a pileated woodpecker. Every morning you can witness the aerobatic maneuvers of our duck squadron as they do an early morning flyby, or the ballet performance of a flock of Canadian geese or Great Blue Herons.

What makes this cottage unique

The large stately trees on this property initially captivated us and then it was the privacy, broad water vistas, gorgeous moon beam rises and wonderful sunrises. The sunsets are also beautiful as the opposite shoreline glows with the setting sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you both for making this a wonderful week. We needed so badly to get away and this has been the perfect place. What a lovely cottage. We feel very honored to have been your 1st guests. You couldn't have been more thoughtful hosts. We will be back. Soon.

Great for fishing weekend

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Condo were gracious hosts. Dave not only gave us advise on what bait to use for fishing, he gave us a bag of peeler crabs to try. Very cozy cottage with everything you will need for your stay.

Best BAYcation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to relax by the pool while watching the eagles soar above the bay, catch rockfish off the waterfront pier with your morning cup of joe, take a sunset cruise on the kayaks with in/out ease, bike safely along hard-surfaced country roads, read quietly with the hummingbirds in full view, or crab for a bushel of fun, this is the place!! And, that's what we did in just the first 24 hours!! Cindy and Dave made us feel very welcomed and were extremely accommodating! Dave even created a live box for our crabs! The waterfront property is enchanting, the cottage is lovely, and the bay provides the perfect getaway for those who want to do it all or do absolutely nothing!! It was a PLAYcation for us, in celebration of our 30th anniversary and our 55th birthdays! For dining out, there a couple of casual, waterfront options, about 10 minutes away, like the Portside Restaurant, which had delicious food that was even reasonably priced! So, if you want a low-key getaway to remind you how much fun life can be, do this!! We did and absolutely loved it!!

Beautiful property on the water

  • 4 of 5

Great idyllic spot right on the water! We rented the cottage, which was a nice cozy location for our week away. I would caution the cottage really is appropriate only for two people. We had our 5-year-old with us and there's only one (nice) queen-size bed. There is a pull-out sofa bed in the living room but it is supremely uncomfortable. My husband and I decided to take turns each night sleeping on the sofa and sharing the bed with our daughter. Otherwise our time there was great - gorgeous pool in the backyard, hummingbirds constantly darting around, beautiful dock on the Choptank, bald eagles sometimes soaring overhead. Nice experience!

Hi all. My wife and two young children had the pleasure of staying in Dave and Cindy's cottage this past weekend. We had never rented a cottage before but decided to try something different. Boy are we glad we did! The estate is absolutely gorgeous! They take much pride in keeping the land manicured and majestic looking. The views of the Choptank River are breathtakingly beautiful with sailboats passing by all day long. We awoke at 6:30am just to watch the sun rise from the dock (my son's request). Dave informed us that there were crabs hovering around the dock and lent us a net and barrell. They even gave us a steamer pot and a quicky lesson on steaming and eating crabs. Catching and gutting crabs to eat is something the kids will never forget (me too).

There is a nice beach with clean sand, seashells and seaglass that we all loved to visit. Additionally, there is a nice and clean pool directly in front of the cottage.

Overall, the experience was A++++++. Beautiful grounds and great people. I always was afraid that i'd feel wierd about renting a cottage with the owners on site. We definitely felt very comfortable. We even had friends over for dinner and the owners were cool with it.

We also saw tons of Bald Eagles and the kids loved the frogs.

The cottage itself is clean and bigger than it looks in the pics.

In the area: The Blackwater Wildlife Refuge driving tour was great.

Thanks for the great time! We probably will not be by you again but if we were it'd be spent at your estate. I'd highly recommend to all!

Wonderful Family Reunion Setting

  • 5 of 5

This delightful home provided a happy experience for all: octogenarians to teens. Cottage provided a comfortable retreat for the elders when they wished to withdraw from the fray. The teens loved the game room. The house is spacious and well appointed, the grounds and setting on the river a visual delight. The hosts, Cindy and Dave are the tops.
