Property description

On the upper reaches of the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay is beautiful Broad Creek on which is located the pet-friendly mini-estate known as Broad Creek Lodge. 5.6 acres of waterfowl and wildlife woods, ponds and rivers. Deer, turkey, fox, quail, songbirds of all kinds, Canada geese and duck abound. Miles of flat back country roads for biking and miles of water for exploring the shoreline in your canoe or kayak - a birders, bikers, and boaters paradise.
The house is designed for entertaining with an open floor plan that segues from room to room and spills over on to the decks leading to the pool and waterfront. All on one floor, the three+ bedrooms occupy one end of the house while the rest is strictly for fun from the totally equipped kitchen to the open living areas to the billiard room and media center.
A dock with lights and running water for your boat or use our two kayaks, wind surfer, or paddle boards. The dock is also good for crabbing, fishing; and watching both the sunrise & sunset on our many park benches.
A picnic loggia for eating hot steamed crabs that you caught and cooked on the outdoor crab cooker, including a fire pit to enjoy the night-time sky.
A pair of mountain bikes for you to use to tour the surrounding areas.
A beautiful pool for sunning and swimming on hot summer days
A hot tub for those aching muscles from days of working hard at sailing, biking, fishing, etc. not to mention playing pool in your private billiard room
Art galleries, fine restaurants, shops, Eco tours, museums, etc., etc. For what more could one ask?
A holiday at Broad Creek Lodge!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: Tina DeAngelis manages BCL for Harold & d'Arcy Harder who grew up in the St. Louis, MO, area, and met in college @ University of MO - Rolla. They have been married for ~38 years, and have two children, Sarah & Christopher, who both live in Knoxville, TN. Sarah & her husband, David, were married @ d'Arcy's sister's house on the Chesapeake Bay in Claiborne, MD. Harold & d'Arcy currently reside in Decatur, AL.

Why Bozman:
Harold & d'Arcy Harder have been visiting this area for over 32 years; d'Arcy's parents retired in St. Michaels, MD, in 1982, and formerly lived directly across Broad Creek from this Bozman house. Several other brothers, sisters and extended family members have moved to the surrounding area, and Harold & d'Arcy look forward to retiring here one day.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
This home is special due to it's proximity to d'Arcy's parents' former residence across Broad Creek, and closeness to her sister's house in Claiborne & her brother's house in Wittman. It also has a deep-water dock to facilitate boats & jet-skis, and a pool, hot-tub and pool table for relaxation & entertainment. During our first visit to the house, we were greeted by 4 deer and 6 turkeys which are now prominently displayed on the Broad Creek Lodge sign at the end of our driveway.
