Enjoy the serenity and natural beauty of the Eastern Shore of Maryland at this waterfront home set on five acres at Benoni Point (Royal Oak, MD). Visitors are attracted to the abundant wildlife including bald eagles, ospreys, great blue herons, egrets, plovers, and other birds, as well as deer, rabbits, and foxes. Or just watch the crabbers, fishermen, sailboats, and cruisers as they ply the waters in front of the property. The Tred Avon River is home to the historic log canoe (a keel-less sailboat) which is unique to Maryland's Eastern Shore and often seen racing one another on summer weekends. For the more actively inclined, a two-person kayak is available (launch from our private sandy beach) and large grassy areas are perfect for outdoor sports like croquet, soccer, volleyball, softball, etc.Or try your hand crabbing or fishing from our dock. Mostly though, Benoni Cove is a place to get away from it all and be rewarded with peace, privacy, amazing sun rises, and the sights and sounds of nature.
