Great property, and the owners were exceptionally flexible. Really peaceful setting, and having the use of the kayaks was great. The kitchen is very well-equipped, and the dock was a wonderful place to sit and watch the day unfold. We would definitely go back.

Owner response: We were so glad you stayed with us. We are also happy to hear that you enjoyed yourselves and look forward to seiing you again next year.
Our stay on the Chester River was great. We had plenty of room for four of us. The accommodations were clean and well appointed. We loved sitting out at the end of the dock and even put a fishing line in the water. The house is very secluded but only a few minutes away from Chestertown and any of the shopping we needed. We would go back again.

Perfect weekend getaway
Perfect weekend getaway
We spent Labor Day weekend here and had the best time. The house is immaculate and perfect for a quiet relaxing weekend. The town is small and quiet with not much to do, but there is no reason to leave the house. They have everything you need there. The Saturday Farmer's Market has amazing fresh fruit and other great finds. We spent most of our time relaxing on the dock and enjoying the river. Also our dog had a ball in the river. We highly recommend this property and hope to return next summer.

Great House, Wonderful Owners
Great House, Wonderful Owners
We stayed in this property for several weeks during the summer of 2013. It's such a wonderful house and great location. Dianna and Russ did everything they could to help make our stay more comfortable and were very accommodating with our dog. The house itself is a spacious 2 bedrooms, a sunroom that can be turned into a 3rd bedroom, a living room, and kitchen with attached dining room. The AC works great, and there are 2 TVs with Dish Network. The bedrooms are large and have big closets. The full bath is clean and bright, and has a nice shower with great water pressure. The half bath is also very convenient. The best part of this house is the location. The house faces east and has spectacular views of sunrises over the Chester River. The dock is L-shaped and has a large section on the end that comfortably seats 6 with plenty of room for dogs to run around too. There's a nice sandy beach as the tide goes out. This is a great place to spend a few days or weeks. Chestertown is a fun little town with plenty of good restaurants and good boating and fishing. We spent almost every evening on the dock watching the stars come out, and loved every day here!

Beautiful views from the dock!
Beautiful views from the dock!
We had a wonderful weekend, relaxing in the Adirondack chairs right on the dock, sipping on a glass of wine while looking out over the river. We came down with huge plans to fish and crab, but ended up mostly sitting on the dock and enjoying the scenery. The pictures really don't do it justice. The water is beautiful during the day, but it's amazing at night when all the stars come out. We also had lots of fun poking around Chestertown and the surrounding areas - ended up in an all-you-can-eat crabfest, so there was no need to catch our own after all!

About the owner: We were introduced to the area back in 2000 and fell in love. We reside in the property next door and felt that this was a good time to invest in a retirement plan that includes this property. We are so confident in the area, that we believe that when the market improves, so will our portfolio.
Why the Owner Chose Chestertown:
It has great potential. Every year we plan to make it better & better
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property has great views from every room in the house. I think most will enjoy the scenic environment. Just as I do right next door.
