Cute, cozy, and cheery...this little ranch house on a quiet street in the quaint fishing village of Wenona, a small community on the southern tip of Deal Island where crabbing and oystering are a way of life is a perfect and peaceful vacation retreat. Eventhough water view is from just one window in the house, what this does mean is that you are very close to water...just minutes from a public boat ramp! This little house lives large and pleasant with its newly remodeled kitchen offering plenty of counter space, lots of big windows and bright light, and fresh paint throughout. We have so enjoyed this home and hope you will too with your next visit to Deal Island.
The home itself met/exceeded our expectations. Very clean, spacious, & comfortable. Well appointed kitchen and Weber charcoal grill allowed us to prepare nearly all our meals at home, reducing expense of travel. Air conditioning totally addressed the August heat/humidity making for a comfortable stay with very effective ceiling fans throughout. Attractive hardwood furnishings & comfortable living space. Neighbors were friendly, too.
Deal Island is remote, but charming. It's about a 15 minute drive to closest "larger" grocery store. The geography & nature is fascinating! We definitely enjoyed the birding and the owners had a nice library including a bird book (we forgot ours at home) that allowed us to identify varying species. Local produce stands on some of the backroads supplied our fruits and veggies!! Jane Island State Park outing one day was fun--although beaches only accessible via canoe/kayak (rentals available)--but it was good!! Friendly staff at the park, too! Also, Arbys on the Island was a great resource, too!
Headed to Virginia to Assatague State Park to see the wild ponies...but dogs not allowed on the island. So, we headed to Furnace City & that was an amazing spot. Much historical info, dogs welcomed, a lovely afternoon! However, we were ill-prepared for the zealous nature trail (needed boots) so we were not able to take advantage of it. We also visited the bakery that makes the famous "Smith Island Cakes"--delicious treat & the staff was fun & friendly to meet!
The following day we headed to the Assatague State Park in MD...only to find out (despite literature) that they too do not allow dogs...however, the National Park adjacent to it does...and found the treasure of our vacation. We were readily able to see the wild ponies just frolicking about...as well as many interesting birds, too. The Atlantic Ocean was amazing....life gaurded beach, beautiful sand, warm water. The $20 admission fee is good for seven consecutive days, so we drove there the remaining time every day (about 75 mins. from the home). Absolutely stunning and worth it!!
Nearby Ocean City did not impress us...too commercial! We did not do the boardwalk, although it seemed very busy. Not our cup of tea. However, a shrimp restaurant (both inside and outside seating) off the "main drag" was incredible...best seafood that we had, friendly staff, real family place!!
A definite gem...highly recommend!

Very cute little house right near the Harbor in Wenona - clean and had everything you could think of already there in case you forgot anything at home - would definitely recommend and stay again!
We had a great time as we always do in Deal Island, but this was our first time at this house. It is wonderful! We found everything we could possibly want or need including candles when a big thunderstorm hit and knocked the power out for a few hours!
The washer and dryer were awesome! Loved not having to bring dirty laundry home. We will definitely be returning!
Thank you so much!

This is a very cute little house in a quiet little town. The deck and grill, and spacious kitchen, made staying here a treat. The little general store/restuarant nearby (Arby's) is excellent for meeting locals and getting suggestions on what to do. They helped set us up with a charter boat to go fishing on very little notice. There is a little bay-side beach on deal island but Assategue is only 40 minutes away if you want a real ocean beach.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home Mary. The pictures do not do it justice. My husband and I took a couple days to come down to fish and I was extremely pleased at how clean the place was and how well stocked. Also that you are right around the corner from the launch ramp was really great. Had a great time even though it was a little windy one day to go out, but managed to fish from the beach and catch some rockfish. Will definately rent again. Harry and Brenda from New Windsor, MD

Deal Island is a quiet, friendly fishing community in the heart of "crabbing country"; do not be surprised that your neighbors will be professional watermen some of which offer chartered fishing tours that leave from Deal Island making fishing and boating perhaps the most popular draws to the area. There is a small public beach area (on right as soon as you cross the bridge onto D.I.) that is great for swimming, surf fishing, and finding sea glass and shells. There are multiple areas of public lands in wildlife management areas on or near D.I. which is great for hikers, birders, kayakers, as well as hunters. Since the island is so flat and home to some very courteous drivers, biking is also very enjoyable here on D.I. The annual Skipjack Races are held every Labor Day weekend, and is a wonderful event to capture the local culture and flavor of the island.
