About John Ventura
John & Kate here! We’re two professionals living in Philadelphia who love good food, traveling, and the Eastern Shore! We love going out and exploring new restaurants in every city we visit.

John Ventura purchased this House in 2017
Why John Ventura chose Chestertown
Nature at its best! When we first purchased the property, we couldn’t believe the amount of bald eagles we saw. Perfect cozy house with great views. Land across from our dock is conserved, so you can’t beat the scenery. Oh, and all of the windows as well!
What makes this House unique
Views from the living room. Waking up to great views from the bedroom as well. Quiet waterfront with great kayaking.

A very clean house and an excellant setting!
My wife and I spent the weekend and my parents even came up for a night. We are all nature lovers and you couldn't ask for a better setting. Where else can you sit in a living room watching a movie while Bald Eagles and Ospreys fly over the water outside your window? We took advantage of the dock, day and night, to just sit and enjoy the surroundings. I already mentioned the Eagles and Ospreys, but there were also a variety of other birds. At night, we enjoyed hearing the frogs calling as well as the Barred Owls in the distance and even the screams of a Red Fox from across the creek two nights. It was also a great place to watch the stars, as the sky is wide open down by the dock. Everything is provided and we probably could have left a majority of our stuff home as anything you need is in the house. For dinner we went to the Harbor House on our first night and Waterman's Crab House in Rock Hall our second night and had excellent meals at both. You will probably need to make reservations at each as they both filled up at dinner time. If you need a supermarket, there is an Acme in Chestertown. We enjoyed our visit to this clean house very much and will definitely plan on coming back in the future.
This unique house located in the woods overlooking a quiet part of Worton Creek was the perfect getaway. Great location for a kayak paddle. You can enjoy a view of the creek from every room. We especially enjoyed our morning coffee on the screened deck watching the sun rise over the water. The owners provide anything you could need during your stay - kayaks, linens and a well equipped kitchen. We also enjoyed sitting on the dock watching eagles, herons, and osprey fly overhead. The owners were very welcoming and replied to our inquiries quickly. The Ventura home is a great place to relax and enjoy the water and nature.
Stunning water views in tranquil nature setting
We can’t wait to come back to this beautiful house in a serene wooded setting on the water! A retreat with a fully stocked kitchen for avid cooks, views of nature from every room including an enclosed porch, access to kayaks and a clean, organized space that welcomes guests. Wonderful hosts think of everything!
Perfect Girls Weekend!
We were looking for a relaxing getaway to enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation and we were not disappointed. The house was so clean and comfortable and well appointed, especially the kitchen. Everything we might have needed was there, including a nice bottle of chilled welcome wine. The views from the entire house were amazing. We enjoyed watching the birds on the porch feeders, a beautiful heron wading in the water and a pair of bald eagles soaring above us as we spent an entire day reading on the dock.
Relaxing few days away from the city
My wife and I had a quiet and relaxing time here last week. We were surprised at the variety of birds we saw - about 20 we could identify at the bird feeder here and at the Eastern Neck wildlife sanctuary. We kayaked slowly around Worton Creek to appreciate the natural environment, and took in the evening light in the Adirondack chairs down at the dock. The kitchen is nicely set up for people who like to cook. All in all a very nice getaway.
Beautiful and very well equipped
The house is beautiful, comfortable and very well equipped. If you like to watch birds, this is the place - bald eagles, geese, ducks, woodpeckers, more. Peaceful and with easy access to some walking trails and historic villages.
