About the property

2 Queen Bedrooms + futon sleeps 5, 2 full bathrooms

Lovely waterfront home directly on the North East river with deepwater pier. Tie up your boat or bring your fishing gear and fish right off the pier! ***Please note only do weekly rentals Friday to Friday during the summer unless other dates can be arranged.

Get away from it all and enjoy the Chesapeake Bay. Have a crab feast here or at one of our local establishments. Fishing, boating, kayaking, a small beach for relaxing and reading, and many restaurants and shops in the vicinity. Visit Baltimore, Washington DC, Philadelphia or even NYC ! Cities are all possible day trips within 1-2 hours by car or train.

Owners live directly across the street and care very much about the property and well being of our guests. Also check out our home in Maine (home away Listing #3001555)

Home has an apartment above it that is rented for the entire summer. They are extremely respectful and use a completely separate entrance. Our son is a commercial crabber and will be going in and out off the pier to 'catch' his crabs. You can buy them right off the boat if you like...or just watch a Maryland waterman at work!

Terrific Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

Home is well maintained and extemely spacious. The waterfront views are spectacular and set this property apart. My wife and I both enjoyed the kayak and my five year old daughter loved swimming at the private beach and fishing from the huge pier. This house is a must for any motorboat owner as private boat launch is just a couple hundred yards away. The owners and their son (the crabber) are very accomodating, yet they completely respect your privacy and unless called upon you wouldn't even know they live just a few houses away. We also loved the waterfront campfires each night. A really enjoyable vacation was had by the enitre family. We would definitely return!!

Beautiful Waterfront

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a week at this property. The owners were helpful and friendly and the house was beautiful and relaxing. Their son (a great young man) crabs and we enjoyed the freshest crabs one evening. We will return to this property. They accommodated our two dogs...who felt at home as well. This was a great cannot go wrong at this property and this location. A big THANK YOU to the Ritters.

On the water

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were both very pleased with the house and property. It was very clean, light, and welcoming, and the owner was very accommodating to any needs we had. There was plenty of room in the yard for family members to sit and fish off the dock, or just enjoy the view. I particularly liked being so close to the water. We will definitely go back.

Lovely quiet home in Cecil County. Right on the North East river with deep water pier for your boat or enjoyment. Small private beach beside property. Antique shops, Restaurants, Casino fishing, boating and water activities all nearby. Take a day trip train to Baltimore, NYC or Washington DC. Please note check in/out on Fridays only unless other arrangements specified.

Home has an apartment above that is rented for the entire summer but they do not have access to the pier and are very quiet and respectful tenants. Completely separate entrances.
