Fishing Cove is a fully-furnished eight-bedroom six-bath waterfront family-friendly house tucked away in a lush pine forest. Our waterfront vacation home is on a very private cove with 2 acres of waterfront property and a large private dock and 3 boat slips. Easy access by car, or by boat from the Chesapeake Bay.

Drink your morning coffee on our 12' x 72' deck watching the birds and deer. Fish and crab from our pier. Swim in our pool. Our large welcoming house has everything you need for a relaxed vacation on the Eastern Shore, including accessibility features - electric wheelchair lift, ramps and wide main floor doors.

Located on Fishing Creek off the Little Choptank 9 miles from Cambridge, Maryland, we are near Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, and our shoreline attracts an amazing variety of waterfowl. We have great bicycling roads: Flat and scenic, so bring your bikes. Bring your canoe and explore the shoreline. The house is wonderful any time of the year!

Sorry, we cannot accommodate weddings, wedding receptions or large group events.

About Virginia Rubsam

With 3 married children and five grandchildren we added a second floor to Fishing Cove to accommodate all of us as well as our friends. When our family isn't using Fishing Cove we offer it to other families so they can enjoy it as much as we do!

Virginia Rubsam purchased this house in 1999

Why Virginia Rubsam chose Cambridge

We bought this house because of its PERFECT location. It is only 60 miles from Annapolis so getting there is easy, going from the hustle of city life to perfect peace in an hour's drive. It started out as a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house that we enlarged and improved to fit the needs of our own large extended family. Then we decided to offer it to other large families for their vacations so they can enjoy it too!

What makes this house unique

We have a large house with lots of space for multi-generational family get-togethers. There's something to do for everyone.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed iur stay at the Fishing Cove as well as visiting Layton's Chance Winery and fun things in St. Michaels. The swimming pool was fine in terms of cleanliness and water temp.

Our book club spent a lovey weekend here. Spacious comfortable house and lovely location. Appreciated the well-equipped (two refrigerators) kitchen. Obvious that owners love this house and want others to feel the same.....

Lovely spot for a gathering of friends!

  • 5 of 5

Our book group (9 women) spent a delightful two nights at Fishing Cove House. The house easily accommodated the 9 of us with its variety of sleeping options, and enough bathrooms for minimal sharing. The house is very well equipped (new kitchen and appliances) with spaces for large and small group gatherings as well as quiet corners for individual reading. The location of the house is quiet and private, with great outdoor space with ample seating and lovely water views. All in all a very comfortable place in easy access (2 hours) from Washington DC.

Second time back, we love it!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends has stayed here twice now. We love it! The house held our large group of 13 adults and eight kids without feeling like we were on top of each other. Beautiful water view and convenient to Blackwater. Ms. Rubsam has always been available when I had questions about the reservation. Can't wait to get back!

lovely get weekend get away with friends

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated a friend's birthday by having 7 ladies go away for the weekend. The house was set up perfectly - 8 bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms. The kitchen was plenty big so we could all help and the dining room had plenty of seating as well. Our only suggestion for the future might be more comfortable chairs in the kitchen (maybe cushions?) and more clear instructions on how to work the TV's. We thought it was very well appointed otherwise and thoroughly enjoyed the spaciousness and views of the house. Great idea to have another little family room in the upstairs. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you Frances! I'm glad you and your friends had a great weekend at Fishing Cove and that you liked the house. I appreciate your suggestions for cushions on the kitchen chairs. I had some but they always ended up outside by the pool...Best, Ginger

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a very pleasant stay at Fishing Cove. Together with extended family members we brought in New Years here. The entire place was very accommodating and comfortable. We are already planning to go there for summer break, if it is available.

Virginia is an excellent host!!

This is a wonderful, roomy, comfortable place, perfect for our large extended family with active lit

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Fishing Cove. It is perfect for large families. Tons of space and equipment for games and activities, even during this frigid weather.

A highlight of our week was a Murder Mystery Dinner. I was the chef and turned out to be the Murderer.

Lots of fun. Lots of space. And lots of Family Bonding Time.

The Cambridge location is the heart of the Chesapeake Bay area and is a convenient drive from New York, Philadelphia, Ohio and Florida. Families gather from these and other areas to enjoy everything the Bay has to offer - the wildlife, the ocean and all the historical sites. There are also great restaurants, festivals, 2 world-class waterfront golf courses, tennis and boating of all types. Fishing, Crabbing and boating couldn't be better. Just tie up at our dock and take advantage of it all.

Other Activities: Blackwater Wildlife Refuge

Golf: The River Marsh Golf Club at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort provides golfers a secluded haven to enjoy golf as it's meant to be played -- with classic styling, wide fairways, sculpted bunkers, generous greens and tees to reward and challenge all levels of players. The 17th hole is a par 3 that stretches 200 yards from the tips. Awaiting the bold player is a dramatic carry over Shoal Creek to a large putting surface guarded by three artfully crafted bunkers. The green is backdropped by majestic trees and a stunning vista of the broad Choptank River that flows into Chesapeake Bay.

Clearview at Horn Point's Golf Course is challenging and fun for any level player. You'll enjoy remarkable views of the beautiful Choptank River from several holes on the course. This par 72/73 course plays to just over 6,450 yards from the back tees. With ponds, traps, tree-lined fairways, and firm fast greens, solid ball striking and course management is a must.
