Overview

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.

Gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous place -- right on the water with gracious hosts. Our only complaint was the weather- but that is nothing that Dave and Cindy had any control over. We would gladly stay here again!

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!!
