About Sparrow Rogers

We are on a family sabbatical in beautiful Montpellier, France so we wanted to share our beautiful island home in Tilghman Island, MD with you. We packed up the whole family (2 teenagers, 3 cocker spaniels and us) to dive into a foreign culture so that we could all learn and grow together as a family.

We will miss the magnificent sunsets and abundant wildlife in Tilghman while we are away but we hope you will enjoy it for us!

Sparrow Rogers purchased this house in 2017

Why Sparrow Rogers chose Tilghman Island

The house has approximately 2000 sq feet of living space, not including the covered wraparound porch, and there are wide water views (with direct views of the sunsets) 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, washer/dryer, equipped kitchen and more. 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.

The house was very comfortable and easy to live in. Loved the view of the bay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was neat and clean when we arrived. It has a lived in feel, so right away it feels comfortable. We had family come for 2 of the nights we were there and it was easy to entertain. My daughter brought her golden retriever, it was nice to be in a dog friendly house.

We will rent this unit again!

Absolutely charming!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two teens and I arrived on Christmas day. I just couldn't stay home this Christmas as it was the first without my mother. I was in love the moment I walked in the door. The entire home exudes warmth and charm. You feel absolutely comfortable immediately. The house is chock full of amenities...gas fireplace, large comfy sofa, a Keurig coffee maker, the list goes on. We've rented many homes in many places, but this was the first time no one wanted to leave the house and go explore. The sunsets are amazing. We relaxed, played many games that they had available and cooked meals in the extremely well appointed kitchen. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were stocked with towels and other comforts. Our Sheltie, Rebel, had all the comforts of home also. The most pet friendly home we've ever rented. The best house on the Chesapeake!

Fantastic Birthday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

For my birthday this year I wanted a water view, gas fireplace, and a soaking tub in a beautiful home near historic sites. This wonderful home definitely delivered!! The open concept first floor has water views from everywhere. The master bedroom view is even more awesome. Fantastic to wake up each morning to the sun on the bay. The wrap around porches are open on the upstairs bedroom level and glass enclosed on the first floor. Great place to relax and enjoy the bay.

We cooked fantastic meals in the fully stocked kitchen with center island and breakfast bar. My favorite time of the day was enjoying the sunset over the bay with a glass of wine while lounging in front of the fireplace.

St Michaels has great shops and restaurants and is only 15 minutes away. Had awesome oysters at Awful Arthur’s. Looking forward to a return visit!

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.
