Property description

The sage green color of this adorable cottage tells you right away that this is not your ordinary vacation home. The charming exterior gives way to a gracious, cozy interior--very up to date and comfortable. Ideal for a small family getaway, this home has much to offer in the way of nature and relaxation.

Enjoy the water views and take in the sights of heron and other waterfowl from the sunny decks, crab off your private pier, even rent a kayak to explore the meandering tributaries and endless shoreline on the Eastern Shore.

Inside this wonderful retreat a bright kitchen, family room with fireplace and more await to give you the perfect backdrop to catch up with friends and family, or perhaps plan the day!

Strategically located between the historic towns of Easton and St. Michaels, both renowned for their eclectic blend of antique shops, galleries, boutique shopping, and fine dining, you will not run out of ideas!

Location

The River House is more than an ordinary vacation home. It's charming on the outside and cozy inside with all modern amenities, and a very Provencal flavor. There is a private pier, perfect for catching crabs, launching a boat, watching herons and other birds, or just relaxing. We can arrange kayak and bike rentals for guests. Inside the cottage, it's bright and light with unobstructed views, cozy fireplace, lovely all year round, and warmed by sun throughout the year. Convenient to both Easton and St Michaels with shops, antiques, cafes and elegant restaurants...you won't run out of things to do. Guests who visit the River House often want to visit our restored Village House in the heart of Provence, France. It's located in Grambois, a medieval perched village not far from Aix en Provence. Contact us for further information.

Owner info

About the owner: My wife and I have been Baltimore residents all our lives, but we have always loved spending time in the more serene parts of Maryland's Eastern Shore. Now that our children are grown and living nearby, we wanted to find a vacation home within easy driving distance that we could use as a family gathering place. Nancy and Larry Baltimore, MD

Why the Owner Chose St. Michaels:
Situated on Oak Creek in Royal Oak, Maryland, the River House is located between the historic towns of Easton and St. Michaels. Although it was a true 'fixer-upper,' our cottage offered just what we were looking for--a peaceful getaway spot with lots of room, plenty of activities closeby, and opportunity for kayaking, biking, strolling, or just 'chilling.'

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
While we have our favorite restaurants in Easton, St. Michaels, and Oxford, we enjoy dining in and watching the constant parade of waterfowl on Oak Creek. At the River House, with its spectacular water views, we feel insulated from the stress of our everyday lives, yet we can be as active or inactive as we want--we're never bored or at a loss for a fun or peaceful way to spend our time.
