Property description

Enjoy a very private getaway on seven waterfront acres and be in a perfect position to explore the Chesapeake Bay region and adjacent Atlantic coast. Located at the juncture of Indian Creek and the Choptank River in Dorchester County, Maryland ten minutes from downtown Cambridge and less than two hours from Washington, D.C and Baltimore.

Eat great local seafood—think oysters, blue crabs, rockfish, scallops—in a wide range of local restaurants. Have a cool drink while you watch sunsets from the dock. Amenities include a 20’x40’ fenced pool built in 2011, outdoor shower, screened porch, deck with barbeque, hammock, three kayaks (two singles and a double), and two adult bicycles. If you like to ride, the area’s flatness and many scenic back roads are a bicyclist’s delight. If you have a boat, you can put in at Cambridge or Secretary (both 10 minutes away). Day trips to the ocean are within easy reach, and at night you can return to beautiful sunsets over the Choptank River. Fishing opportunities range from charter boats to informal casting from small craft or beaches in the Choptank.

Outstanding bird watching: you may see herons, bald eagles, osprey, ducks, gulls, and kingfishers, among many others. Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, with walking, driving, and bicycling access, is only 20 minutes away.

The house's ground floor includes the kitchen, two living areas, two half baths, a master bedroom with queen bed and full bath, screened porch, and deck with dining table and barbeque. Upstairs are a full bath, one bedroom with queen (with direct access to bath), one with twin singles, one with queen and sitting area. Master bedroom and one upstairs bedroom have 40' flat screen TVs with HD cable and Blu-ray/DVD player.

The dock is the perfect spot to watch the sun set over the water. Because we're on a tidal creek where it meets a one-mile-wide river, you can kayak or canoe in calm, protected water, or paddle along the river as far as your arms will take you.

You will be five minutes from the Chesapeake Hyatt, where you can golf, enjoy the luxurious spa, or eat in one of the several restaurants.

Some suggestions for exploration: Visit St. Michaels on the Miles River for its shops, restaurants, and maritime museum. Historic Easton has great food, a beautiful and walkable historic area, and fine art galleries. Oxford, small, very picturesque and on the water, is a short drive. On the Atlantic, Rehoboth Beach is a great day trip for families with children, with its beautiful beach plus boardwalk and associated attractions. For wildlife lovers, Chincoteague Island National Wildlife Refuge and Assateague Island National Seashore offer beautiful, unspoiled beaches. Only 20 minutes from the house, Blackwater Wildlife Refuge has an abundance of walking/bicycling trails.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: When our last child was ready for college we decided it was time to fulfill a longstanding dream and find a place on the water on the Chesapeake Bay's Eastern Shore. We wanted privacy, closeness to nature, kayaking, bicycling, and views that promoted serenity. We found all this and more, and hope you will enjoy getting to know this beautiful area of the country as much as we have.

Why the Owner Chose Cambridge:
We find Dorchester County to be the perfect location because the entire Eastern Shore as well as the Atlantic beaches are accessible via day trips. So if some folks want to spend a lazy day in the pool or a hammock, others can hit the beach in Assateague or try the taffy and Strombolis on the Rehoboth Beach, Del. boardwalk.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is very private and quiet. Historic downtown Cambridge is 10 minutes away, and Oxford, Easton, and St. Michaels--all charming towns--are easy drives. Eating ranges from a new hot dog place on Rt. 50 to high end cuisine in Cambridge and other nearby towns. For a real Eastern Shore seafood experience, try Suicide Bridge Restaurant (you'll learn where the name came from) on the water in nearby Secretary. The beautiful Chesapeake Hyatt is only five minutes away, with golf, spa, and other activities available to visitors. We're located well off the road, so parking is never a problem and children are not endangered by traffic.
