Waverly Cottage on Cobb Island, Maryland is a beautiful waterfront property offering a grand view of the quiet waters of Neale sound and Wicomico River. Surrounded by the Potomac River, Wicomico River and Neale Sound this small residential island is the ideal location to enjoy the natural beauty and coastal waterways that grace southern Maryland.
This delightful cottage is fully furnished with two bedrooms, a full bath and spacious eat-in kitchen and family room creating a relaxing coastal atmosphere. The master bedroom has a large queen bed, while the second bedroom is outfitted with two twin beds and the family room offers additional guests a comfortable night's sleep on a queen size sleep sofa. The nicely equipped kitchen easily accommodates a gathering at the large dining table, while the family room has plenty of seating and television and VCR for movie viewing. The cottage has an entry/dining deck with an enclosed porch on the front with views of both the sunrise and sun set over the water. The terraced yard leading to a 100 foot pier and dock offer great opportunities to watch the passing boats while crabbing, fishing and swimming.
Traffic is very light on Cobb Island making it perfect for biking, walking and enjoying the native wildlife (osprey, herons, swans and ducks) adding to the serenity of the peaceful waterside. A wonderful community playground is just a five minute walk away while a country grocery store and marina/restaurant are also located nearby on the island. For dining out and a taste of local seafood try Captain John’s Crab House/Marina and Shymansky’s Restaurant that are located just over the bridge.
To satisfy your touring spirit, Cobb Island is within easy driving distances of the museums and monuments of Washington DC, historic Mt. Vernon and Woodlawn Plantations in Virginia, the Civil War Battlefields of Fredericksburg, Virginia and St. Mary's City (early settler's village) in southern Maryland. Sail and motor boaters can make short day trips to various sites within the Potomac River watershed.

The place was great. Very clean and owners provided more than we thought. And if u love fishing, this place is great. Caught plenty of croakers and they were tasty. We very much enjoyed the place and view. Very relaxing. Thx Vincent!
From the moment you open the door, you know its going to be a great stay. The view from the cottage is amazing. The river, pier and dock are right there. We watched the sunrise from the enclosed porch and the early fishing boats heading out. Fished all day from the pier and saw a beautiful sunset. Inside the cottage had everything you needed to make you feel at home. Very clean and furniture and beds are very comfy!!!! I could go on and on about what a wonderful spot this is.....can't wait to return. Thanks Vince & Betty!
