Cambridge house description

Easy to love but hard to leave! Where to start? Originally built as a Washington DC getaway for a U.S. Congressman, Hard to Leave is now owned by a family with many aunts, uncles and cousins and is renovated into a vacation mecca for multiple generations. Private pool, private dock, private tennis court,7+ BRs on over 7 acres. Shaded yard with adirondacks overlooking Church Creek is the perfect landing for the evening bocce ball tournament. Non tournament players simply enjoy a round of Marco Polo while waiting for the burgers to grill poolside. No need to leave the property except possibly by water to enjoy the shoreline via kayak or boat - some could argue a round of golf at the Chesapeake Hyatt's Keith Foster Golf Course is a worthy distraction but you'll have to judge for yourself. Imagine this vacation destination compared to your last time at the beach and envision the difference - no crowds, no traffic, no peripheral noise except for nature's orchestra. Once you and your crew arrive everything you need is here - your playground is inherent to the property. There comes a time when you need take a leave from those vacations that leave you tired and spent. The combination of many indoor private and public spaces with outdoor activities and acreage provide a retreat that leaves everyone with a good feeling. Be a hero and book Hard to Leave - your family and friends will thank you.

                  Car: Necessary

                  One of the oldest towns in Maryland, this small town sits on the banks of the Choptank River. About an hour from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, Dorchester County boasts famous residents such as Harriet Tubman, the most famous of Underground Railroad 'conductors' who led dozens of enslaved people to freedom, and Sharpshooter Annie Oakley. Also, more Maryland governors are from this area than any other with the exception of Baltimore City! Explore Cambridge and surrounding Dorchester County's long history as an agricultural and canning powerhouse, and their boatbuilding and maritime heritage—there are several self-guided walking tours, driving tours, river excursions and museums to help you experience the stories and history. Called the 'Heart of Chesapeake Country' because of it's location and shape, there are 1700 miles of shoreline surrounding 39 percent of Maryland's wetlands in the area, providing endless opportunities for kayaking, biking, and exploring.
