"My friends and I were coming to Cambridge to race Ironman Maryland. We had booked Swan's Nest for the original race date of October 3, 2015. When we arrived for our stay, the race was cancelled because of Hurricane Joaquin, that was headed right towards Cambridge. Fortunately, the race was rescheduled (unprecedented, never happened before) to October 17, 2015 and Hap (the owner) was INCREDIBLY flexible with us. Finding housing in Cambridge for this race is incredibly difficult, we had booked a year in advance, and the stress of racing an Ironman is enough without having to deal with housing nightmares and rescheduling, so to have Hap on our side through all of this was invaluable.
And when race time finally came, the home was perfect. Close enough to town to get there quickly, but far enough away to give us a great, quite location to retreat from all the Ironman craziness. The kitchen is set up to be social, and we often found ourselves huddled around it. We were able to sleep everyone comfortably (11-12) and the house was large enough that I barely heard my friend's three teenage boys who stayed with us.
Swan's nest is not fancy, but I think that is what makes it so cozy. I napped out on the dock the day before the race. We spent hours sitting on the huge porches. While there is internet and TV, we never really turned it on because we were so busy with other things but also just relaxing and enjoying each other's company.
I definitely recommend Swan's Nest -- except the weekends when I want to return and then don't go, leave it free for me!"

"From the first inquiry to the last, the owners and managers were quick to respond to all our questions. They truly made the Captains Quarters a welcoming place for the entire family. We were given permission to host our sons rehearsal dinner( a crab feast) for 50 there. Everyone loved sitting on all the picnic tables picking crabs!! The kitchen was well equipped, spotless and everything worked. Which is amazing given the size of the property. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a true Chesapeake experience. We loved the sunsets including the Blood Moon eclipse. So many eagles and osprey to entertain us over coffee. Hope to visit again."

"The cottage is delightful and the property and surrounding countryside is beautiful to explore. No detail had been overlooked. It was fairly chilly some days and we enjoyed sitting by the fire, looking out at the water and reading. Cathy and Bob are interesting, wonderful hosts. And the baked treats -yum! I think the highlight of our stay was the opportunity to sail on the skipjack. It was a blustery day and we really did some sailing! I will recommend Deerpond to all our friends."

"Beautiful, Warm & Cozy our family stayed 3 nights and 4 days . Time went by so fast ! Our family had so much fun we plan on staying here every year. Have stayed at numerous Cambridge Rentals but no need to look any further This property has everything ! Hot Tub.. Jacuzzi.. Gourmet Kitchen.. Unbelievable Shower with 3 Heads. Kayaking.. Amazing Sunsets.. Great Fishing & Crabbing off the private pier.. Perch.. Rockfish.. and we averaged almost a Bushel of Crabs per Day .( 2 crab pots were provided we also used 15 Hand Lines ) this was the Ultimate Surprise !! The Pool is still under repair by no fault of the owner which we were very fairly compensated for. This was not a problem , so much to do here enjoyed every minute of our stay ! This will be our Family' s new get away spot every year !"
