Classic Eastern Shore vacation
Nestled in a historic Chesapeake Bay fishing village. Scenic and peaceful year round, the Sunrise~Sunset Cottage sits on the southern tip of Deal Island in the harbor village of Wenona.
Enjoy spectacular Chesapeake Bay and Wenona Harbor water views from our modern custom built waterman's style cottage. Watch ships and fishing boats from the 2nd floor living room picture window and 2nd floor deck. Sip coffee as you take in a Wenona Harbor sunrise from the 2nd floor screened-in porch/deck area.
Welcome to Maryland's 'slower, lower' Eastern Shore!
Plenty to do and see!!! Bring your boat(s) or rent ours. We offer motor boat rental.May-Sept. Plus there is free use of our canoe, 2 kayaks and 2 bikes. Maybe charter a boat from one of the Wenona Harbor boat captains for some fishing, birding and/or sightseeing.Relax and enjoy views of the harbor at the new Shedders Restaurunt within walking distance.
We are home to the Eastern Shore's best fishing & sightseeing spots. Panaromic water vistas galore!!!
Hike/bike Deal Island. A perfect blend of water vistas, harbor activity and old town charm. Bring your camera. It's one of the few remaining places on earth to harbor the commercial Skipjack sailboat. Do you like to eat crabs and fresh fish? Buy'em directly from the boat captains as they come in to harbor with their 'catch of the day'.Or enjoy catching your own.
Birdwatch with our binoculars or yours from our 2nd floor OR as you bike or hike the Wildlife Mangement area which runs throughout the island. birdwatchers can see Egrets, Herons, Pelicans,and Bald Eagles. Many from the raised living area of the cottage. Stargaze with our telescope or by naked eye;..the Milky Way never looked more stunning!
Enjoy our upstairs livingroom area w/vaulted ceiling & ceiling fan.Which functions as a year round sun room and nature obsevatory Take in breathtaking sunsets from the living room picture window, feel the warm bay breeze, and watch sailboats, fishing boats and ships as they cruise the bay. Sip coffee from our 2nd floor screened-in porch/deck area as you watch the sunrise 'inch up' over Wenona Harbor.
This is a great place for kayak or canoe trip adventure too. You can paddle the short distance to Little Deal Island...relax, fish, crab or dig for muscles on its beach. Explore the local tributaries, such as the Manokin River.
Guests at our home will feel like neighbors when they are greeted at the general store by Arby and his family who will answer questions and give you info on water conditions as well as fishing and boating info. Arby's store is stocked to meet the needs of fishermen/boaters
.In 2012 Arby opened Shedders Restaurant and Bar!
Bring your bikes as it's a wonderful place for a short tour around town or for that longer bike ride over the Deal Island Bridge and around the Deal Island Wildlife Management Area. We provide a guide.
You can also relax on the quiet beaches of Deal Island and Little Deal Island. We provide the beach chairs & umbrella. And remember to save plenty of down time to enjoy summer reading by the bay and board games. This is a great place to reconnect with friends and family any time of year.
Night time is campfire time around our property firepit! Hey maybe roast some oysters, muscles and/or Smores as you gaze skyward for shooting stars!
There are several options for dining. Stock up on groceries at the Food Lion in Princess Anne as well as prepared seafood from the nationally known Beach to Bay Seafood Restaurant and dine by the bay at home. Princes Anne has several Eastern shore-style restaurants as well as fast food choices. We also recommend Lucky's Last Chance Grill located in Chance, Maryland just before crossing the Deal Island bridge.
We will send complete information and more pictures when you inquire about this property.

Great home and great place to relax. Bill and Patty were able to accommodate us on very short notice and the house was great. The house is very well kept and cozy. There was more than enough room and great views. The small town was quaint and had great fishing spots. I don't think we've ever had a vacation that was so relaxing fun. Thank you Bill & Patty for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Thank you so much for opening up your beautiful little cottage and sharing it with us. It was very peaceful and what a beautiful view! Had some great family time together. We really enjoyed taking the boat out and exploring around and I kayaked for the first time with my daughter. We really enjoyed ourselves. Holland is an absolute charm! You all are so blessed to have someone like him taking care of your place. He was the biggest help with giving us information, getting us some crabs to steam. He is such a nice guy and really took care of us. Thanks again for sharing your home with us. We hope to be able to come back one day.

Just a Lovely Island Retreat!
Wonderful house ,beautiful views. We enjoyed walking the nature trails at the Deal Island wildlife management area, and got some great pictures of Bald Eagles! The absolute best part of Deal Island are the people. Treated us like we were old friends. Had a wonderful Friday night hanging out at Arby"s listening to great live music and talking with the locals. If you get a chance check out Mike's dancing -he's a joy! Next time we plan on getting some fishing in.We had a great stay

Wonderful retreat!Guest comment entered by owner
Hi Patty, Everything was great! We got a lot of bicycle riding in last week. And on the last day, on your balcony rail, there was the bluest bluebird I've ever seen! I even thought it might be an indigo bunting, but it was a bluebird. (We loved having the bird book on hand, by the way. We're not true birders, but we love to spot and ID them!) I do want to tell you how friendly we found people. This was especially gratifying on the bikes -- people were more courteous to us in the Princess Anne region than anywhere else we have ridden. (We have brought bikes to a number of places around the country!) And of course they were very friendly in face-to-face encounters as well. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful retreat with us.

My wife and I spent the second week of September at the Sunrise/Sunset Cottage and it was a wonderful experience. The house is very comfortable and has the amenities everyone needs. It was quite close to the water and we had wonderful breezes and enjoyed much of our time on the wonderful screened porch. We were very fortunate that we had some of the best weather of the year. We especially enjoyed the outside fire pit. Sitting there under the most beautiful night sky was awesome! We got to watch a “light show” each time with shooting stars and more constellations than we realized even existed. We visited the beach near the Deal Island Bridge at least three times and had the entire beach to ourselves. The water was 77 degrees, and we were able to hop right in! If you travel to Wenona, you’ll meet some of the nicest people in the area. Everyone was friendly and helpful and, more than anything, so welcoming! Arby, Debbie, Holland … all great people! We also enjoyed excursions to the wonderful Salisbury Zoo (amazing), Crisfield, and Chincoteague Island. The beach at Chincoteague was just breathtaking! Also, the wildlife museum there is very special. Don’t hesitate to book a stay at the Sunrise/Sunset Cottage. It’s a place where you can relax and really take things slow. Randall Apgar

Dear Bill and Patty , We very much enjoyed our stay at your house. Our 2 sons 5 and 7 loved using their crab nets at the harbor to pick up crabs. Arby has been wonderful informing us about sea life. We explored several of the sandy beaches around Deal Island We will email you pictures for Facebook!

Awesome beach adventure!
Awesome beach adventure!
My Family had a wonderful stay in your cottage. It was a well maintained property, and clean. We had 4 teenagers, and they were never bored! The beach on Deal Island is small, but very private and most the time we had it to ourselves. At sunset we would go find more glass and shells than i have EVER seen anywhere before. We boated to little deal island where we explored the island. It is a bit on the rough side, but that was its charm. Totally inhabited by anything but pure nature, and its creatures. We found so many strange objects that kept the kids searching for more. We even found a perfect glass bottle from the 30's totally intact on the beach! My husband and i did do some fishing from the boat, and we caught some fish. I even had a crab on the line! What would have made it perfect is if we had better access to the water. It was a bit frustrating being so close to the water, but having to drive somewhere to get to the boat. But at least we had that option, where the others rentals didnt. Arby and his family (and all the locals) were very kind and helpful with everything. We even went to "luckys" and had our last dinner there, and they even gave me a piece of cake with a sparkler for my birthday which was that day. All in all, it was a very relaxing vacation, and i would recommend it to anyone who wants to get back to the basics of nature and quiet. We made a quick day trip to Ocean City, which made the kids happy, but i hated it and couldnt wait to get back to the peaceful island!

Owner response: This review really captures the Deal Island experience and the reason we love it so much. The local residents do make our guests feel welcome. The Wenona Harbor, where the boat is launched by our boat manager is a short walk from the house. You can see that from the aerial view. The water view location does allows us to offer affordable rates.
Great vacationGuest comment entered by owner
We had a wonderful vacation! Caught lots of fish including a great big flounder which we cooked for dinner. On our way back into the Wenona Harbor we saw some Dolphins who after we stopped came right up to the boat. That was the first time we have seen live dolphins. The house was really nice. We spent lots of time relaxing on the screened Porch.
