St. Michaels house description

Located on the outskirts of the town proper of St. Michaels, this fantastic family vacation compound provides everything you need for a true Eastern Shore getaway. This lovingly restored farmhouse has a brand new gourmet kitchen, 5 bedrooms, cozy den with fireplace and a screened porch with gas fireplace to warm you on those breezy summer or early fall mornings. There is plenty of room for everyone to spread out, play games in the casual dining room or enjoy coffee and plan the day overlooking the formal garden. Enjoy the new gazebo, a perfect backdrop for capturing some treasured family photos!

The grounds are lush with mature landscaping, plenty of privacy, centuries old trees for shade on those hot summer afternoons, and room to roam for the little ones.
The newly restored barn supplies endless opportunities for your kids or kids at heart--game tables, air hockey and foosball. Work off the crab cakes and ice cream with the Vectra gym and rowing equipment!
The pool is flanked with a poolhouse, complete with changing area and two full baths for showering after a swim or a day on the water, and kitchenette for your favorite beverages. The hot tub is open seasonally for your enjoyment as well.
The deep water slip has easy access to the Miles River and St. Michaels harbor, and kayaks are included with this property to explore the smaller creeks and nature watch on a peaceful morning. Like a good Captain, the owners have taken meticulous care to ensure your enjoyment of this home--previous guests will appreciate the continual upgrades including new pool furniture, fully redone steps in the barn, and other improvements. This home offers something for everyone!
Please note hot tub has been winterized and is not open Dec-April.

              During the War of 1812, St. Michaels gained its name as 'the town that fooled the British'. The residents of St. Michaels, having been forewarned that British barges were positioned on the waters to attack with cannon fire, hoisted lanterns into the trees above the city. This first successful 'blackout' fooled the British into overshooting the town's houses and shipyards. Only one house, forever since known as Cannonball House, was struck.

              The industry was largely concentrated around shipbuilding and seafood packing, and there are several museums and cultural centers that nod to this heritage. However, today St. Michaels enjoys primarily a healthy tourism industry as guests come from far and near to enjoy all the wonderful things this charming town has to offer. Many will also recognize St. Michaels as the backdrop of several popular movies, including 'The Wedding Crashers'.
