Guest cottage on Victory Farm

Bedrooms 1
Property type house


About the property

One bedroom guest cottage with fenced yard for your pooch on working sheep farm.

Nestled behind the main house with a fenced garden, the cottage is a rustic, cozy getaway for sightseers and travelers who enjoy a country setting. Relax and discover the culture, history, nature, and cuisines of Maryland's Eastern Shore. Perfect for folks traveling with a dog or two. Short or long term rentals.

Please note: Victory Farm is an authentic working farm with dogs, cats, sheep, chickens, and a horse. This is part of our charm and integral to the experience of staying here. Forget about TV. Start your day with fresh eggs left on your doorstep from the hens who are steps away; end it watching spectacular sunsets across our fields where sheep sometimes graze or our border collies race around and play. In between, enjoy local events in Kent and Queen Anne's Counties such as the National Music Festival, Tea Party, events at Washington College, RiverArts, Harry Potter Festival, Downrigging (one of our favourites), and local running and biking events.

The cottage includes a full kitchen, bath and laundry area, a queen size bed (roll away bed or aerobed available on request) and wifi, air conditioning, and little propane stove for comfort. We supply linens, and can stock fridge with advance notice and payment.

Kent County is a water focused community with miles of road for running and bike or motorbike riding. On the farm, we have parking available for boat or skidoo trailers, as well as day and overnight kenneling for pets as space permits.

Please note: In addition to our livestock, Victory Farm is home to the highly respected Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue and Belle Rose Kennels. We love dogs and we love farm living, but guests should note that noise, bugs, and dirt are all part of the territory! We appreciate your understanding and look forward to your visit.
