Property description

Historic Watch Goose Farm is now available as your private waterfront vacation destination. This family property (owned since 1942) can be enjoyed as a secluded and romantic getaway, or as a location for the active outdoor family vacation. Enjoy spectacular sunset views over a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. Spring and summer mornings bring the watermen to the cove as they set their lines for Maryland blue crabs; in the Fall migratory waterfowl make the cove their home through the winter. Private pool and dock are perfect additions to your memorable vacation or special weekend.

Your stay will be enhanced by this comfortable home with original 1730’s colonial architectural details. Enjoy your meals on the sun porch or al fresco poolside. The Great Room is perfect for watching movies, family games or spending a quiet afternoon with a good book. Enjoy a variety of restaurants and fine dining in “downtown” St. Michaels, and explore the Chesapeake’s cultural heritage at the nationally recognized Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.

Bikes, kayaks, crabbing equipment, a library full of books and games are available for use during your stay.
