'Shore's Fun' is located at Silver Beach, a small, charming Chesapeake Bay cottage community, established years ago when life moved at a slower pace. One can easily recapture the relaxation of by-gone days while gently swaying back-and-forth on the old-fashioned, porch swing and gazing at the majestic Chesapeake Bay. Reconnect and spend quality time with your family away from the daily interruptions of computers, televisions, doorbells, and endless commitments. Come and enjoy the wonderful things that Silver Beach has to offer: fireflies, hummingbirds, butterflies, bluebirds, bright stars, board games, magnificent sunsets, salty breezes, warm sands, gentle waves, and tranquil days.
'Shore's Fun' looks directly across an open yard to the Chesapeake Bay and is within steps of our community beach and neighborhood pier. Spend a delightful afternoon on the pier catching crabs and fish, then toast the spectacular sunset with a bottle of chilled wine before preparing your fresh catch.
The air conditioned cottage is designed for a relaxing visit. It is equipped with comfortable furniture and beds, has a screened-in porch, a shady back yard, a picnic table, and a gas grill. There are two bedrooms. One bedroom opens onto the screened-in porch and contains a queen-sized bed and a single bed. The other bedroom has a queen-sized bed.

Year Purchased: 1977
About the owner: My parents had a cottage at Silver Beach when I was growing up and visiting there was the highlight of my summer. I remember lying in bed in the morning and hearing the gentle waves breaking on the beach, and the delicious smells of fire roasted marshmallows and hot dogs.
Shortly after we were married, my husband and I rented a cottage at Silver Beach. We fell in love with the people and the area and luckily discovered a cottage for sale. We bought it that week, and sealed the deal with a handshake. As the years passed, our children spent long, relaxing, wonderful days growing up at Silver Beach during summer vacations. We were all sad when it was time to leave the cottage in the fall and resume our normal lives.
As our family grew, we bought a second cottage at Silver Beach and our fondest memories have taken place there. Today, our adult children bring their little ones and friends to the cottages, and the traditions continue.
Why the Owner Chose Silver Beach: 'Shore's Fun' is in a perfect location. It is within a 1 minute walk of both the community beach and pier.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: 'Shore's Fun' was totally renovated during the spring of 2011. It is bright, cheerful, and very comfortable.
