ReviewsWrite a review
This was a perfect get-away vacation spot. We really enjoyed being a few minutes' drive from town, where we enjoyed "First Friday", and found terrific places to eat and drink. At the house, we spent a great deal of time sitting on the dock by the river, having a cocktail, reading, watching the geese fly overhead, and listening to the fish jump. It was an ideal combination of easy access to town and eastern shore solitude.

Owner response: We loved having you stay at the cottage. We hope to see you again in the future.
This cottage was the perfect quick getaway for us (2 couples from NYC and Philly). We wanted easy water access to kayak and swim in a peaceful secluded setting and we definitely got that! The dock is fantastic, right on a beautiful creek. We saw osprey fishing, a bald eagle family, and herons every day. And we didn't fish this time but wish we had brought gear because there are some nice looking fish. And at 19 feet deep the water is perfect for diving in and swimming! Throw an inner tube in, grab a cold beer, and you're set for the afternoon. Kayaking up Morgan Creek is wonderful. You won't see another soul on the water, just lots of birds, calm waters, and natural beauty.

Recently spent a weekend at the cottage with my family and had a great time! Found it exactly like it was described and portrayed in the photos. We spent most of our daylight hours on the dock, which easily accommodated 6 adults. We fished, kayaked, floated on rafts and bird watched. The kitchen was comfortable and the table was large enough for our group to play games as well as eat! We were grateful the central air was working so well! Hoping to return next summer!

Relaxing, idyllic piece of countryside

The place was perfect for me and my five friends. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed and the garden was an absolute gift. Loved the easy-chairs, rope swing and aerial bench. The creek at the back made for fantastic afternoons sunning ourselves on the pier and swimming in the cool water. As an owner, Dianna was great. On arrival, we had a useful introduction to where everything was and how to work the TV etc. Then Dianna left us to relax and enjoy ourselves, whilst only ever being a phone call away and happy to help out if needed. We particularly appreicated Dianna letting us stay late on our final day so that we could enjoy more of the beautiful surroundings before our flights home. Would highly recommend this location for anyone who has a love of nature or who just wants to get away from a city and relax in a comfortable environment. Thank you Dianna!

Owner response: We are so happy you enjoyed your visit. I hope that you will consider staying with us again if you are ever in the area again. Thanks again!!!
We rented this house with another couple for a weekend. We had a great kayaking trip on one of the days - you can even put in at the dock if it's high tide. Dianna was great - she let us use two of her kayaks because her other guests were not using them. We had a crab feast on the picnic table in the backyard, and we used the grill for some fish. Overall, very relaxing!

Owner response: Leigh, We are so glad you enjoyed yourself. We try to accommodate whenever possible and I am certainly glad that we did not disappoint you guys. I hope that you will think of us again in your future travels to Chestertown. Don't forget, we have the location right around the corner on the river. There is absolutely no problem getting in and out there. Plus the kayaks are always included with that rental. Thanks again. Dianna & Russell
Enjoyed our short stay in this cottage. Dianna was very helpful, bringing extra chairs for us to enjoy the outside. Cottage exactly as represented: clean, dog-friendly, on the water. We weren't at the cottage very much as were mainly in Chestertown at a farmer's market and concert; then in Rock Hall for a triathlon. Was a comfortable place to stay; not top-of-the-line or luxurious appointments, but fine for our family and the dogs. Lots of bugs in the air since we were close to the water - bring insect repellant. New microwave. Plenty of dishes, though short on sharp knives for chopping. Be sure to bring ice for beverages and bottled water as the well water turned gray as we used water for showers. Beds were comfortable; nice furniture in the family room. Everything we needed!

Owner response: Thank you so much for your review. I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. Thank you for also letting me know about the knives. Not sure what happened to them. Last time I inventoried, there were plenty. I will have to check on them again to see what I have to replace. I will also get someone to look at the water conditioner. It sounds like it may not have been working properly. I hope to see you again in the future.
The cottage is very cute inside, very private, and has wonderful access to the marsh. I was most impressed by all the amenities - the owner has thought of everything you might need! We were treated to watching osprey nest on the edge of the property, and dined out in many fine restaurants. The cottage and the Chestertown area are both wonderful.

Owner response: I am so glad that you and your son had an enjoyable time. The Ospreys have officially taken up residence in the pole supplied by the utility co. They were trying to build in both places as of last Monday but, by Friday they were just concentrating on the new pole. Hopefully, now they can get down to having babies. I want to thank you for leaving the cottage immaculate. That was a nice surprise. I hope that you will think of us again in the future.
My husband and I stayed in late October. It was the perfect weekend getaway. The house was located in a beautiful and peaceful setting. The back of the home backed up to the water. There was a lovely dock that my husband and I spent many hours on relaxing with a few cold beers. The town is very close and has an adorable historic charm. The owners were very friendly and extremely accommodating. I would definitely recommend this little cottage to anyone.

My husband and I spent a long weekend at this country cottage this past fall. We could not have asked for a more idyllic setting. We enjoyed sitting out on the dock with a glass of wine. My husband also enjoyed fishing from the dock. The house was conveniently located near town. We enjoyed shopping and the farmer's market on Saturday. There are also great restaurants nearby. We highly recommend staying here if you would like to be able to get away from it all while still being close to town. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The even let us check out a little later on Monday. The property was nice and had plenty of room for our dog to run around outside. It was also nice to have access to a grill to barbeque so we did not need to eat out every day.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My husband and I were first introduced to the eastern shore by very good friends in 2000. We fell in love and purchased a boat, then a bigger boat, then a house, then a bigger house. We are there almost every weekend of the year. The house we live in now is just around the corner from this property. We have been married for 30+ years, have 2 girls, 2 son-in-laws and 1 grandchild so far. Both of us grew up in Delaware county, PA
Why the Owner Chose Chestertown:
This was the first home we bought on the eastern shore and I just cannot part with it. It is the perfect place for privacy, serenity, & relaxation. There are so many things to do between Chestertown & Rock Hall. There is always a festival or craft fair, waterman's days, Pirate's weekend(picture), Tea party, the best fireworks & some of the best restaurants in the area. We have had annual tenants for the last 4 years but, this year we wanted to try weekly rentals so that our children could have a place to stay occasionally. I know that you will fall in love with it just as we did.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I remember how we used to go down to the dock with some snacks and a cool drink, watch the sun go down, watch all the wild life( ospry's ,eagles etc.), and feel completely alone with nature. Only during the winter months can you even see the property across the marsh. On any clear night, there are millions of stars in the sky. You can even see the milky way on occasion. The Legion occasionally has events but they are few and far between and always over by 10pm. You can have camp fires, bar-b-ques, and sit in a hammock or swing and melt the everyday stress away. There is large catfish in the creek. Crabs make their way up the creek around mid July. The water is nice and deep at the end of the dock so, your feet never touch the muddy bottom. Plenty of water fowl all year long.
