Start your Eastern Shore vacation as you make your way to Fishing Creek Farm down the long, private quarter-of-a-mile driveway where you'll be greeted by a one hundred year old Sycamore tree, weeping willows and the sun bouncing off the creek.

Fishing Creek Farm is a large stone Cape Cod home lovingly rebuilt from the ground up in 2004 with all modern conveniences. Step inside to the clean, cheerful, spacious yet cozy home with a lodge-like feel complete with stone fireplace and heated tile flooring. Drop your bag, grab a cool beverage and sink into large nautical blue sectional sofa to take in the view from the full wall of windows looking onto the creek. Once you catch your breath, take a tour of your home away from home.

Upstairs you'll find wonderful cherry wood floors as you make your way to the large Master Suites 1 and 2 complete with full baths and walk-in closets. These bedrooms are very private from each other. Master Suite 1 has a King and Master Suite 2 has a Queen size bed. There is a full laundry upstairs as well.

Downstairs there are two bedrooms. The Chesapeake Room has a queen bed and large walk-in closet and is great for the parents of kids in the Bunk Room right next door. Kids love our Bunk Room because of the two twin-over-double bunk beds! Parents love the Bunk Room because it gives the kids private play area with a DVD player/TV so the adults enjoy the great room within ear shot.

The kitchen has all modern appliances, stainless steel fridge with ice-maker, gas stovetop, oven and warming drawer. We've provided all you need to keep your family and friends well-fed and well- hydrated during your stay including a blender and our favorite, the electric griddle for large pancake breakfasts, plus a 12-cup thermal coffee maker!

The main living area/great room has 9ft ceilings and large windows everywhere. The screened porch with its vaulted, wood ceiling and comfy seating provides serenity while you sip your coffee in the morning and take in the unbelievable glassy water, the sound of birds and the occasional visit from the river otters. Stay up late and enjoy a bug free evening with the sounds of crickets and owls.

Outside a new large dock and boat ramp let you enjoy the water. Play horseshoes right next to the water under the giant trees. Bring your boat or use ours; we've provided a paddle boat, and kayaks.

'Wow. What a lovely home. It's even prettier than the pictures if that's even possible!' Karen M.

''We never left the property even though Cambridge is just a few minutes away. We just spent our time reading, eating, strolling the farm, sunbathing on the dock, kayaking, and having happy-hours on the screen porch --this home had all we needed to decompress.' Thea H.

'Can I have the king bed? It's so comfortable I didn't want to get out of it!' -- Patty S.

'The kids got such a kick out of crabbing from the dock each night. This place must be magical to get the kids to put down their gameboys and not ask for them all weekend!' -- Marlene Z.

'It was so great to just let the kids run and do their own thing. I felt comfortable letting them take the kayaks out on their own because I could easily see them from the dock.' - M. Johnson

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Mike and I lovingly restored this home and the grounds in 2004 and continue to make improvements.

Why the Owner Chose Cambridge:
It was love at first sight on a May day. I remember driving down the long driveway and seeing the large old trees and the weeping willows. We signed the contract a week later.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Cambridge offers great restaurants, antiquing, fishing, boating and more. Fishing Creek Retreat is just minutes from downtown Cambridge, 15 minutes from Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, ten minutes from the Cambridge Hyatt Resort located on Route 50, and 90 minutes from Ocean City Maryland.
