The vineyard on the farm can be just the most gorgeous back drop in spring, summer or fall when the vineyard changes color. Watch the grapes grow and get harvested tgardens. Thornton Manor built in the late 1700s, is surrounded by old shady trees and lawns looking out over fields of soy and corn. The red wooden barn built in the late 19th century just sets this property off with the old world wood charm and color.

Thornton Vineyard was without a doubt one of the most spectacular rental properties I've had the pleasure to enjoy. The house itself is a model of upkeep and renovation to historical structures. It maintained the genteel aura which the circa 1815 property conveys while catering to all of the conveniences of modern, high-class living. The kitchen is all brand new, offering a pleasant work space big enough for the whole family to congregate and enjoy. Almost every room is wired into the whole house stereo; which was one of my favorite features. Furniture, linens, and appointments are all of the highest quality. The master suite alone is larger than many metropolitan apartments! Everything was spotlessly clean. The pool and adjoining pool house was an excellent way to pass the hot summer days while relaxing on this large and private property. Proximity is conveniently close (6 minutes) to Chestertown, while maintaining absolute privacy. The reception provided by leasing agent and property owner upon our arrival was top notch. We were presented with a guided tour of the house and property along with a small selection of fresh local herbs and vegetables. Delightful. Stay here. You'll love it.

What a great family experience!
We just loved out week at Thornton. The younger crowd left the house after breakfast in the morning and we did not see them till lunch when they walked in with 4 bass caught in the pond! Smiles, giggles and lots of sharing of the mornings experiences. We just laughed and to think we have paid a fortune to send them off to Camp in August. The boys pitched their tent on the lawn, had a bonfire and we all did the "smores' thing and just loved it all. Yet, there were so many places to just take your book and curl up and have quiet time. Thornton is just very comfortable from the comfortable beds, gorgeous linens to the spacious and well furnished home in general. The ladies in the house went off to Chestertown and got the "shop till they dropped" experience for the week. We had no trouble finding a good restaurant which we did twice but just being able to be together, cook in the well equipped kitchen or bbq each evening was just pure bliss. Thank you Thornton and Tidewater Vacations for making this a fantastic week this Spring. See you all soon again in the Fall.
