Cambridge Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Four Bedrooms, Comfortable, Spectacular Views, Boating, Swimming and family fun

There are two houses on the property. In June of 2015 we completed a complete and total re-build of the carriage house and are back up and running on VRBO. Since retiring in 2014, Clarissa and I are living full time in the house and you may see us from time to time, but the carriage house 'cottage' has been designed to be a get-away that is comfortable, elegant, private, cozy and memory making. It is perfect for families, couples, and or friends just wanting to spend some time together. It is far enough away from civilization to enjoy the water, sky, trees and wildlife, without being entirely out of touch. You are in short driving distance to Cambridge, Easton, St. Michaels, and Salisbury for lots of day-trip entertainment. For nature lovers, we are near the Blackwater Refuge for kayaks or canoes. For hunters, this is an area sought after by those interested in ducks, geese, deer, turkey and others. For golfers, there are two nearby golf courses and plenty of varied and highly-rated local restaurants.

If you’d rather just stay on the property in a quiet, secluded natural arena, you can enjoy boating, kayaking, fishing, crabbing (right from the pier), swimming, walking, biking, sitting with your favorite folks, or holding down the hammock with a good book. In cool or rainy weather, there are games, books, internet and TV. The house is designed for entertaining, with a brand new kitchen equipped with plenty of cooking paraphernalia, and the living space is conducive to easy conversation and lots of comfortable seating.

There are two different areas for dining, inside or under the pergola, all in view of the Brooks Creek/Choptank vista. It is perfect for a family to get re-acquainted or a romantic getaway. We provide the ambiance, you provide the fun!

Living room with 42' flat screen TV, dining room, bathroom and kitchen, two with queen beds and a third with a full size bed, and a loft with two twin sized beds. separate 15 x 12 pergola with slate flooring, adirondacks, fireplace and dining seating for four. The pier can handle motorboats, canoes, or rowboats. Two kayaks are available. Linens and paper ware provided along with all kitchen equipment and dining ware.

About Rob Neumer

We bought this Cambridge property as a family getaway from our full-time jobs in Harford County. Our grown children travel here from various Maryland locations with their friends to do loads of relaxing, kayaking, swimming, jet skiing, and many kinds of games and outdoor fun.

Rob Neumer purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Rob Neumer chose Chesapeake Bay

The main purpose of this beautiful location is for peace and quiet, beautiful vistas, water, trees and sky. It was discovered with the help of locals who knew of its privacy and scenic view.

What makes this cottage unique

Reading a book under the pergola with a soft breeze blowing in from Brooks Creek, napping in the hammock, or enjoying a fire after sunset with friends makes this a restful, rejuvenating place.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend. Our family and friends stayed at the house for Ironman Maryland and it was the perfect set up for us and the kids. Our kids enjoyed kayaking in the calm water, playing on the swing, and watching bald eagles. Unfortunately, we had a rainy weekend, but there is a great area for building a fire overlooking the water. The kids (ages 13,11,10) loved the loft as it was surprisingly large, and there were plenty of games for them to play. The kitchen was stocked. Beds were very comfortable and bathroom was large enough to accommodate our group, with an extra bathroom downstairs if needed.

Rob and Clarissa were so nice, our kids couldn't stop talking about how nice of people they were! They went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

Wonderful!!! After taking a deep breath realizing our stay was above the garage, lol, we were in awe of the grounds which are beautiful and extremely well kept. The house itself was very comfortable, wish there was a TV in each bedroom but couldn't have been more relaxing. Rob & Clarissa welcomed us as they would family. EVERYONE even the teenager granddaughter wants to come back next year. Lots of great family memories. Thank you Rob & Clarissa.

Wonderful stay. Would love to return someday

  • 5 of 5

The property itself is beautiful and allows a plethora of activities and quiet places to relax. We especially enjoyed the use of the dock, grill, and kayaks. Our hosts were extremely friendly, kind, and met our needs very quickly when we had very minor issues.

The house itself was clean, stocked with supplies, and everything worked as advertised. Couldn't ask for anything else! Thanks for a great stay!

Minor things to watch out for:

-We spotted some poison ivy in the woods around the property, but it was just starting to pop up and the owners did a good job of keeping it from spreading.

-I also slipped on the deck putting a kayak into the water, so make sure to wear water shoes for traction! The owners did provide a few pairs.

We had the perfect week. Rob and Clarissa were wonderful hosts, there if we needed or wanted but always respectful of the shared outdoor spaces. The house was so cozy and had everything we needed. The kids loved the loft and the small pool.
