Very, Very Nice Came down from SE PA (Lancaster County) to celebrate the 60th birthday for my wife with two other couples. House made a very nice weekend home for six people. Enjoyed the porch - sitting on the porch telling stores at night -- We had a wonderful day at Blackwater Wildlife Refuge. Saw several bald eagles and blue herons up close - amazing! Saw a large turtle stretched out warming itself on a rock in a waterway --head and legs fully extended for a long period of time. None in the group had ever seen anything like that before! The fall weather was fine -- warm and comfortable. We even stumbled upon a schooner show in Cambridge. Boarded several boats and enjoyed free folk music about the sean and the Chesapeake Bay. All in all it was a very nice weekend. Thanks for sharing the house! Tom, Tina, Carl, Deb, Harold & Phyllis (PA)

About the owner: that's me: Barbara Bose, of Chesapeake Country House
Why the Owner Chose Cambridge: This is a spectacularly beautiful area - unspoiled, serene and historic. Staying there is like pushing the reset button. It is situated on a long peninsula that juts out into the Chesapeake Bay and there is a picturesque creek across the street. I never didn't love the 10-mile drive from town, whatever the weather or season. Keep a keen eye for nature, which abounds - you'll always see something - wild turkeys, rabbits, deer, turtles, geese, ducks, crabs, eagles, osprey, and lots more.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This neighborhood is gorgeous 365 days a year - wake up early and have a cup if coffee on the front porch to witness the sun's glow through the morning mist that rises off the creek. Step outside at night at see a billion stars twinkling overhead, free of any competing city lights. Take a walk in the crisp fall and hear the geese which are settling into their winter rest right nearby. Be reminded by a friendly wave (and almost everyone does) that there are places where people are actually nice.
