Historical Home in Cambridge near the Choptank River
"We booked this property in January of 2015 for the USSSA World Series inJuly. The home was everything that was promised in the listing. The house was comfortable and we utilized all three floors without any AC or Wi-Fi issues. The park and the marina were within walking distance and there was a farmer's market operating there on Thursday. The drive to and from the fields took anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour but well worth the trip to have a house to come home to instead of a hotel room. The traffic was minimal. We were also able to spend a day and half in Ocean City. The owners of the home were easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions or concerns."

"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 family and I stayed at Laura and John's lovely house for the weekend of the Eagleman triathlon. The Bayview House is an easy 25 mile drive from the race course and in a breathtaking area. The house was very clean and comfortable and the air conditioning was also very much appreciated. Laura gave us great recommendations including Emily's Produce (I got delicious vegetables and fed the goats) and Old Salty's. Overall it was a fantastic weekend and I'm glad we chose to stay where we did."

"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!"
