About Sparrow 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.

Sparrow Rogers purchased this house in 2017

Why Sparrow 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.

The property and house were breathtaking. It felt like home in every sense. We wanted for nothing.

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as pictured. Stunning inside and out. Everything was broken in and felt like a cozy home. We felt relaxed and taken care of even though we were on our own. The owners made sure to anticipate every need. The theme carried throughout was such a sweet touch. Not only was the house extremely dog friendly but so was the nearby town of St. Michael's!! This was found by accident and it was the best decision we made.

Beautiful views of the bay from all directions.

What a lovely home right on the bay. Peaceful and relaxing in a quiet cul-de-sac. Wish we could have stayed longer but we will defiantly be back.

One of the most well presented, pet friendly places we have ever stayed.

  • 5 of 5

This was a terrific holiday. The house is beautiful, part of an estate of around 10 properties and a small marina all overlooking the water. If you want peace and quiet, in very comfortable surroundings, this is it. Views of the Chesapeake Bay with beautiful sunsets, only traffic is the gentle chug of crab boats going out, geese flying overhead, frogs, and birds. Kayak rentals close by and the Tilghman Island General Store with wine tasting on a Friday night. Walk out on a private balcony or relax in air conditioning with the view. Highly recommend.

Lovely home for a peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (two daughters, 9 and 12) stayed at Le Petite Retreat in early August. Of course, our pooch joined us, too. The home is lovingly maintained, well-appointed, and very comfortable. The view out back is fantastic, providing the opportunity to sit back and relax, play with the dog, and enjoy a glass or two of your favorite beverage. We couldn't have asked for a better spot to begin and end each day on the Eastern Shore.

Tilghman Island, itself, is a quiet getaway from the larger towns of the area but still provides a few good restaurants, boating galore, and excellent bird (and bunny) watching. St. Michaels is about 15 minutes away and offers more restaurants, cafes, shops, the Maritime Museum (a must see to learn the history of the area), and more boating. As kayakers, there are tons of great put-ins to explore-- quiet coves with easy paddling and more adventurous trips on the Bay. Blackwater Wildlife Refuge is about an hour away and a great way to spend the day on the water.

Lastly, Charles was an excellent host. He was responsive, informative, and kind from the moment I booked the trip, offering suggestions and directions for activities and food.

Needless to say, we all thoroughly enjoyed our week. We highly recommend this home away from home.

Lovely pet welcoming house on Tilghman Island

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this house. We were two couples and two dogs and the house was great. So many thoughtful touches throughout. Many times, "dog friendly" can also mean not as nice, but not so here. There were treats and thoughtful touches that made traveling with our pups a breeze. Only reason we gave four stars instead of five was that the refrigerator was not working well when we arrived and the owner wasn't able to get it repaired while we were there so we were without for most of the trip. That said, he was very responsive, made every effort and brought over big coolers and ice. Based on how he handled every aspect of our stay, this wouldn't keep us from booking again.
