Property description

You can rent this adorable cottage that has the best of every world. This property is located just 2 short miles from historic Chestertown but, situated in a country setting on a deep creek (Morgan creek) with over 2 acres of privacy. The house is 1200 sq. ft. that includes a living room, 1 bathroom, 3 bedrooms, large kitchen with a breakfast bar and full dinning area, stacked washer & dryer. The house has hardwood flooring and newer windows. A swing in the big Maple tree out back for two. A fire pit installed out back for those chilly nights or making smoors. The shed out back has been converted into a game room equipped with ping pong table( was donated to the cause), dart board, cards & board games. There is a 40’ dock with a 10 X 20’ “L” head that is great for boating, cat fishing(really big ones in there,) swimming, or just plain hangin’ out with a cool drink. The water is approximately 19’ at the end of the dock. Children & dogs are welcome. HUNTERS WELCOME!! For any of you NASCAR fans, we are situated only 40 minutes from Dover track. We are also 20 minutes from Rock Hall & 45 minutes from Annapolis. 35 minutes from premium outlets in Queenstown.

Chestertown Tea Party 5/22-25, Rock fish tournaments usually early June and mid Sept
7/5 Waterman's day in Rock Hall, 7/3 Fireworks in Rock Hall, 7/4 Fireworks in Chestertown and parade in Rock Hall. All times are great with lots to do but, if you have never been to this part of the eastern shore then these are the best times.

Lots of people walking around during these events. A great way to get to know the town.
Wilmer park has events as well. There are concerts, taste of the town to name a few. If you are planning a certain week and would like to know the events near town, just ask and I will do my best to list everything I know.

Owner info

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 swing and melt the everyday stress away. There is large catfish in the creek. Crabs make their way up the creek around mid Sept. 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.
