Property description

This simple, self-catering cottage welcomes you to pause and enjoy the beauty of the Chester River. Water views from every window connects you to the flowing water and the expansive outdoors; the southern exposure welcomes spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Relaxation and inspiration is abundant in this buffer zone!

Located close to both Chestertown and Rock Hall, it is an ideal gathering space for families and friends with many activities available in the area. By boat this energetic space is located near Comegy Byte, the Langford Creek and the Corsica River. There is a boat launch within 1/4 mile of the house and a boat slip at the house; water depth is 2.5 feet MLT. Fishing from the 70 ' dock does not require a license.

For outside gathering, there is a large deck by the water with tables for dining; a picnic table under the shade of a holly tree and a water view bistro table and pergola beside the house. Your personal ebb and flow is honored inside by a large living area that supports two places for seating and for eating. Come and fall in love with this retreat; return often!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: I started visiting this general area over 25 years ago and was captured by the essence of a waterside community. I am a board certified holistic nurse, retreat leader, speaker and coach that embraces the concept of sea glass as a symbol of transformation ~ becoming stronger and more beautiful with winds, waves and sand. :)

Why the Owner Chose Chestertown:
There is a unique aspect of the Eastern Shore of Maryland - it draws your spirit to the landscape, the water, the wildlife and the expansive sky. I love knowing that this space is literally connected to all others by the water - the Chester River connects to the Chesapeake Bay and then to the Atlantic Ocean and then to... The Kent County area is rich with artists of all kinds, wonderful restaurants, local theatre and sweet little shops. Having Washington College nearby is a joy with their educational and inspiring venues. After 19 years I am still awed by the sunrises and sunsets from the house as well as the peace and serenity of the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is within 1/4 mile of a public launch on the Chester River. Watching or playing on the water and observing the watermen, boaters and waterfowl from the house/dock.
