Property description

Bayberry Cove is the perfect Chesapeake Bay private retreat for a family vacation or a group of friends and kids to get away from it all.

It is a 5 bedroom (4 bedrooms downstairs and a large sleeping loft bedroom with full bath upstairs) vacation home with large wrap around decks, a 16' x 28' swimming Pool, a large hot-tub, pool area safety gate, and an electronic safety pool cover to insure children and pets don't wander into the pool accidentally. There are Four Full Bathrooms. Pets are welcome.

There are two large 20'x22' bedrooms on the east and west wing of the house with large cathedral ceilings. There is a large master loft bedroom in the original Geodesic dome portion of the house. The main living room area is a great room and the ceilings are 25' high. There is a large 10'x15' dining room with water views and glass windows all around the dining room table.

Bayberry Cove offers Eleven (11.6) acres of private waterfront property nestled along a private creek on the east side of the property (1200 feet of shoreline) running North to South with the south side of the property facing Fishing creek (400 feet of shoreline).

The house is just 100 feet from the water's edge. Most of the property lies alongside a private protected creek (2 to 4 feet deep) which is a tributary of Fishing Creek which is a tributary to the Little Choptank River. Fishing Creek is 12 feet deep at its center. We offer a pier with two boat slips on this protected private creek.

Enjoy breathtaking views of the Little Choptank River & Fishing Creek from our expansive deck and enjoy the massaging jets in our therapeutic spa year round. Peace and quiet are abundant on this property, most of all.

When you are done swimming in the pool, you can take an outdoor shower and wash the chlorine off your body with hot and cold running water in the outdoor private shower stall before drying off and going in the house.

At night, you can enjoy sitting in the hot tub with a refreshing beverage while you view the brilliant stars and milky way galaxy. There is no light pollution surrounding this property.

Fish and crab from our pier or in the creek and river. We provide One Ten Foot Walker Bay Dinghy and two Kayaks for use at your own risk: one tandem and one single user kayak. The Dinghy has oars and can be mounted with an outboard motor - bring your own 2 or 3 horsepower motor if you wish. These items have no rental value or cost or guarantee and are for use at your own risk.

Sleeping arrangements: Four bedrooms have queen beds that sleep two people each or eight total. The fifth bedroom has two bunk beds to sleep four. The living room's couch folds out to a queen bed. There is one roll-away bed that can be put in one of the larger bedrooms or in the living room or loft. (Fifteen people at max can sleep in beds)

The house is 8 miles from Route 50 and less than 6 miles from downtown Cambridge. There are three major grocery stores within a ten minute drive from the house.

We include:

* all pillows, towels, pool towels, and blankets/comforters. (PLEASE BRING LINENS (4xQueen and 4xTwin Sets) WE DO NOT PROVIDE LINENS SO PLEASE PLAN ON BRINGING BED SHEETS AND PILLOW CASES)

* fully stocked (utensils, plates, dishes, glasses;etc) kitchen with propane stove, large butcher block countertops
* two propane grills
* two coffee makers.
* electric turkey roaster, microwave, and toaster.
* toaster oven
* blender for making frozen drinks.
* utility room with washer and dryer.
* vacuum cleaner and a rug steam cleaner.

We do not allow Weddings/Large Parties: Our vacation home is in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood and we like to keep it that way. The nearest neighbor is 1/4 mile away but nevertheless, we do not allow large parties, weddings, wedding receptions, or large family reunions. We like to limit the amount of people to 15 on the property at maximum. Please call us to discuss.
