"I cannot express how amazing this property is! It is the perfect retreat to get away from the city, have some peace and quiet, while having plenty of activities to keep you entertained. You can boat, fish, play games in the yard, play fooseball, pool, ping pong and air hockey in the barn, and even just relaxing by the fire or on the dock.
I would highly recommend this destination to anyone with kids of any age, company retreats, reunions, etc.
Shelly was an amazing host, very quick to respond to any inquires or requests, as well as accommodating to all of our needs.
We would 100% rent again."

"Our 3 generational family enjoyed this large well equipped home. Roger was very accommodating when our adult children informed us that they would arrive a day earlier than originally planned. The infant bedding included made for pleasant comfortable sleeping arrangements. The large dining room table accommodated all of us and the well equipped kitchen & outdoor gas grill allowed us to dine at "home" with the entire family together. It was a great long weekend that was enjoyed by all."

"Beautiful property. Clean and well maintained. Very private and quiet location. Enjoyed fishing, crabbing, kayaking, swimming in the pool and swimming from the beach area. So relaxing to sit on dock, beach or patio. Saw deer, turkeys, eagles and an otter. Very large yard to play recreational games if desired. Fire pit for campfires. Short drive to Cambridge to enjoy the restaurants and activities. Owner, Brian, very accommodating."

"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!"
