About the property

3Br 3Ba, 2000sq ft located ON the Chesapeake Bay! Drive or Sail-in friendly!

Thank you for considering our place for your vacation! This is our "beach house" and we live in nearby St. Michaels. The house is a 2 storied, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house located directly on the Chesapeake Bay. There are screened/glassed-in porches that wrap around the first floor and private balconies off of the master bedroom and one of the guest rooms. The house faces west, providing the most amazing sunset views anywhere on the Eastern Shore!

The house is adjacent to the Tilghman Island Marina so you are welcome to come by boat or car to enjoy island living. The house comes with everything you need to make your vacation stay feel like home away from home: free wi-fi, luxury bedding, towels, board games, movies and cable tv channels. All you need to bring are your clothes and a sense of adventure.

For those who plan to come by boat, we have a 2008 Hyundai Elantra or a brand new Wolf 50cc scooter that you can rent (at an additional charge) to explore Tilghman Island.

About Charles Rogers

We (Charles and Sparrow) live with our two sons and three cocker spaniels in nearby St. Michaels but we find Tilghman Island to be a favorite family destination. The sunsets are magnificent, the wildlife is plentiful and the Islanders make a vacation here authentic and hospitable.

Charles Rogers purchased this house in 2017

Why Charles Rogers chose Eastern Shore

The house has approximately 2000 sq feet of living space, not including the covered wraparound porch, and there are wide water views from almost anywhere in the house. The house is very nice but not so fancy that you can't kick back with your friends, family and four legged companions (if you have one). There are 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, a king-sized hide-a-bed coming in the spring - plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy all the benefits of the Bay.

What makes this house unique

Our neighborhood is co-located with the Tilghman Island Marina so you can come by boat or car. While you are visiting, you can rent jet-skis, kayaks etc without ever getting in your car. Historic St. Michaels is only 15 minutes away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is charming with fantastic views! We loved the enclosed porch with a fireplace! Perfect for relaxing and watching the water. The hosts provided everything you could possibly need and more. Great little touches everywhere, from chocolates and snacks to extra toothbrushes/toothpaste. Overall, a great getaway.

Nice, quiet house on the Chesapeake

  • 5 of 5

What a great house for a short vacation. It was clean and well equipped. Situated right on the bay with great views, it's even nicer than the photo's on Homeaway. Charles and Sparrow were great hosts. Sparrow met us at the house, showed us around and made sure that we had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: James and family were fantastic guests! They treated our home with love and respected it as they would their own! We would happily host them again any time and to any future potential hosts for Jim and his family, we definitely recommend them!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This big house is very clean, well stocked, and comfortable. Great internet service and has a big screen TV. Located in a quiet area with a really nice view of the Chesapeake. A couple decent places to eat on the island, otherwise St.Michael's is a 15 minute drive away with a couple very good restaurants, and decent grocery shopping. Charles, the owner, was so helpful and informative. Very dog friendly, including baskets of toys, treats, dishes and a bed.

Lovely views and breathtaking sunsets on the water. House has lots of light and amazing views of the water. The furnishings are very much lived in and full of charm. Just perfect for families with young kids and pets. The hosts were very kind and helpful. We enjoyed our two day visit for sure!

Owner's Response: You guys were the best. Way to set the bar high for future guests! I'm fairly certain that you left the place cleaner than when you got there! It was great visiting with you. And to any potential future hosts, you couldn't ask for better guests! I highly recommend!
