Tilghman Island house description

Spectacular Sunsets - If you like to hear the sound of waves hitting the shoreline while watching spectacular sunsets & smelling the salt air of the Chesapeake Bay, then you have found your vacation home on Tilghman which you have been looking for. From kayaking to fishing and crabbing off the pier, riding our bicycles, playing horseshoes and corn hole, or just curling up with a good book while watching the magnificent sunsets, this is a slice of heaven.

Located just 55 feet from the Bay with a large deck, 60 foot pier, screened porch, a boat ramp for launching your kayak or small boat, 2 bicycles (upon request) and a regulation horse shoe pit. If you like to fish for blues, rock or croaker, throw some crab pots over the side of the pier, or just catch up on reading a few books, this home has it all !!

And just maybe, you would like to take a walk -- if so, we are within walking distance to Dogwood Harbor to view several of the few remaining skipjacks, perhaps see a waterman bring in his catch of the day, as well as visit some fine restaurants, the new General Store, and an antique nautical book store.

We look forward to having you visit Tilghman, a small but very friendly fishing village, just ten minutes from St. Michaels...

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1985

                          About the owner: My wife and I purchased this land and built a nice comfortable home on the Chesapeake Bay, primarly as an investment for our children's education... As the years went by, we decided to retain the property and still be able to educate our three children... This, our second home, is used sparingly as we are particular as to who we rent to as we want to keep it in awesome shape.. You will see this house lives up to our hype.. We currently reside near Annapolis, Maryland and are empty nesters...

                          Why the Owner Chose Tilghman Island:
                          My wife and I enjoy waterfront living, spectacular sunsets and the sound of the waves crushing on the rip rap... I enjoy fishing, crabbing and kayaking while we both enjoy relaxing and reading a good book either from the deck or our screened porch.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Suffice to say, at sunset to see the sun and many of the colors of the rainbow as it sinks into the western shore, is a slight that you beg for more and do not easily forget. ... Enjoying a bushel of freshly steamed crabs complete with Old Bay seasoning direct from the watermen, or fileting a fish on our outdoor cutting board while watching the sunset, is truly a lasting memory.
