Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I purchased and restored the nearby Thomas Harrison House (VRBO 198445) in 1991. As my interest in the area grew, I purchased and restored the Thomas Blades House as well as the Washington Melson House (VRBO 229963) and John Bruff House (click on link).

Why the Owner Chose St. Michaels:
The proximity to the beautiful harbor and to almost everything in Town, the architecture and the historic character of the area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Walking distance to everything...harbor, shops, restaurants, museums, library, tennis courts, community pool etc. Large screened porch off of the family room. Very comfortable and relaxing home.
