"Our six adult, two dog and one 5-year old group arrived at Still Pond Creek for a 4 night stay hoping to enjoy a comfortable and spacious house, lovely grounds to explore with our dogs, and lots of board games and craft projects to enjoy at the large dining room table. Still Pond Creek was all we had hoped for and more!
The bedrooms were large, comfortable and separate enough from one another to offer each family the privacy they wanted. When we weren't playing games (Citadels, Matchi Koro, Survive, 8 Minute Empire, Dixit) in the dining room we hung out in the sun filled great room during the day or by the roaring fire at night. The Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed.
The dogs and we enjoyed walks along the shoreline and romps on the huge lawn in front of the house. The view of the creek from practically every window of the house was beautiful. On clear nights we went outside to marvel at the bounty of stars in the night sky.
Still Pond Creek was frozen over and snow covered the ground during our stay. But we still saw lots of wildlife including - bald eagles, Canada geese, turkey vultures, woodpeckers and deer to name a few. In Summer I can imagine the beach will be a delightful place to play for kids and water loving dogs. And if you have a kayak or canoe, the creek would be so much fun to explore!
We enjoyed a trip into Chestertown on Saturday for the farmer's market (8-noon) in the town square followed by shopping at the excellent local bookstore and then coffee at one of the many cafes. The consignment shops offer some good finds if you enjoy that sort of hunt and the art galleries were nice to explore.
Thank you to the Barrett Family for making their lovely house available to us. We hope to be back!"

"Unfortunately our weekend was so jam packed with wedding festivities that I didn't get the pleasure of meeting the owners of the home, my husband said Dianna was very hospitable! The home is beautiful! I wish we had more time to enjoy all that it had to offer!"

"What a lovely place on a historic tree-lined street right on the water. The unit is just beautiful and immaculate. The beds are very comfy, and the views out every window are heavenly. Ducks and boats everywhere! Walking or jogging around Chestertown is really fun because of the old brick walks and historic houses/buildings. The little Farmers market on Saturdays thru mid Nov are fun, all the residents bring their dogs. The restaurants the owner recommended were super, and we also love the little old book shop. The kitchen is gorgeous. The owner is wonderful. Enjoy, but don't tell anyone :)."

Family vacation including 3 new grandbabies and 2 grandpuppies (Year 2)
"My family starts talking about returning to Cliff Point in early spring and the planning begins. Although there is a large supply of fishing equipment and flotation devices provided, the guys like to have their own rods and rafts. The property is so peaceful and quiet it is very easy to forget about work and everything else in your life and just enjoy the water, the fishing and family. Below you can find my review from 2013 (our first visit) and 2014's visit was equally as enjoyable.
In 2015 we hope to return again, but this time we will have one more grandbaby. Having this many young children at the beach would be very hectic, and we could forget about bringing the dogs. At Cliff Point we can walk, swim in the river or in inflatable pools, fish, boat, and eat some of the best seafood in the world!
I encourage everyone to check this house out, be it for 6 adults, a large family, or several small families - we love staying here and communication with the owner is fantastic."
