Cambridge estate description

Come to Ransome's Chesapeake Retreats 'RCR', a private, 250-acre, waterfront estate with one mile of shoreline on the magnificent Chesapeake Bay of Eastern Shore, Maryland. 'RCR' is the ideal setting for Family vacations & reunions, Weddings, Corporate Seminars/Retreats, Club events and Weekend Getaways. Looking for a unique and 'extra'ordinary vacation location for your family this year? A place to relax in beautiful and peaceful surroundings, yet be 'close to it all'?

Our Chesapeake Bay estate is located just outside Cambridge, a quaint maritime town filled with history and tucked away on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Travel through the countryside James Michener wrote about in 'Chesapeake.' It is the perfect getaway for boating, fishing, golfing, shopping, sightseeing, or just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful Chesapeake Bay shoreline.

There are miles of walking paths and our boat dock/ramp offers direct access to the bay for water sports. Our facilities offer lots of places to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings - a screened in porch overlooks a fenced-in pool, pond and the Chesapeake. There are unparalleled views from all 3 homes and especially from the 2nd floor deck. Here, you can watch the sun come up on 1 side of our world & later that evening see a breathtaking - 'stop what you're doing & watch' sunset go down into the bay!!

Our multi-complex estate has a Family Room and a Great Room in the Main House. There is also a 30' x 30' meeting/rec room in the Fun Center. Find all the amenities you will need to make memories that last a lifetime. We have thought of everything, so you don't have to.

Wildlife abounds; the surroundings are picturesque. You can go boating, crabbing and fishing on-site. The Blackwater Wildlife Refuge is our neighbor and offers more paths (for walking, hiking, and biking) and waterways (for canoe and kayaking). Boats, canoes, kayaks and bikes can be rented locally. There is a small grocery store 3 miles from our retreat.
