Cambridge house description

Fishing Cove is a fully-furnished eight-bedroom six-bath waterfront family-friendly house tucked away in a lush pine forest. Our waterfront vacation home is on a very private cove with 2 acres of waterfront property and a large private dock and 3 boat slips. Easy access by car, or by boat from the Chesapeake Bay.

Drink your morning coffee on our 12' x 72' deck watching the birds and deer. Fish and crab from our pier. Swim in our pool. Our large welcoming house has everything you need for a relaxed vacation on the Eastern Shore, including accessibility features - electric wheelchair lift, ramps and wide main floor doors.

Located on Fishing Creek off the Little Choptank 9 miles from Cambridge, Maryland, we are near Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, and our shoreline attracts an amazing variety of waterfowl. We have great bicycling roads: Flat and scenic, so bring y our bikes. Bring your canoe and explore the shoreline. The house is wonderful any time of the year!

Sorry, we cannot accommodate weddings or wedding receptions.

                              The Cambridge area is the heart of the Chesapeake Bay area and is a convenient drive from New York, Philadelphia, Ohio and Florida. Families gather from these and other areas to enjoy everything the Bay has to offer - the wildlife, the ocean and all the historical sites. There are also great restaurants, festivals, 2 world-class waterfront golf courses, tennis and boating of all types. Fishing, Crabbing and boating couldn't be better. Just tie up at our dock and take advantage of it all.

                              Other Activities: Blackwater Wildlife Refuge

                              Golf: The River Marsh Golf Club at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort provides golfers a secluded haven to enjoy golf as it's meant to be played -- with classic styling, wide fairways, sculpted bunkers, generous greens and tees to reward and challenge all levels of players. The 17th hole is a par 3 that stretches 200 yards from the tips. Awaiting the bold player is a dramatic carry over Shoal Creek to a large putting surface guarded by three artfully crafted bunkers. The green is backdropped by majestic trees and a stunning vista of the broad Choptank River that flows into Chesapeake Bay.

                              Clearview at Horn Point's Golf Course is challenging and fun for any level player. You'll enjoy remarkable views of the beautiful Choptank River from several holes on the course. This par 72/73 course plays to just over 6,450 yards from the back tees. With ponds, traps, tree-lined fairways, and firm fast greens, solid ball striking and course management is a must.

                              Year Purchased: 1999

                              Why the Owner Chose Cambridge:
                              We bought this house because of its PERFECT location. It is only 60 miles from Annapolis so getting there is easy, going from the hustle of city life to perfect peace in an hour's drive. It started out as a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house that we enlarged and improved to fit the needs of our own large extended family. Then we decided to offer it to other large families for their vacations so they can enjoy it too!
