The deck surrounding the pool is furnished with deck chairs, lounges, umbrellas, a picnic table, lunch table, water toys, and a gas barbecue grill.

In addition to the many land-based activities, the water sports are extremely popular. We include the use of 2 kayaks, a canoe, and our unique SurfBikes during your stay. The SurfBikes can be used in a number of configurations to accommodate guests of all ages.

Car: Recommended

The Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge is just 11 miles away, but you will see plenty of wildlife without leaving Cherry Point. Eagles, osprey and heron fly by constantly. Marsh and red shouldered hawks work the marshes while deer and fox prowl the edges of pine forests. The water holds crabs, clams, oysters and 15 varieties of fish including flounder, sea trout, drum and the prized rockfish.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: Both Susan and I grew up in families that took 'family vacations.' We wanted our kids and grandkids to have the same kind of vacation but with 22 of us we could not afford the resorts. We found and bought this old 2-bedroom farmhouse on a SPECTACULAR piece of land, rebuilt it to fit our purposes and have been able to enjoy watching the grandkids become very close with each other even though they live from NJ to SC. Our long time renters have enjoyed the same benefit as they bring their extended families together for a vacation week at Cherry Point

Why the Owner Chose Woolford, MD, USA:
We sail; Cruising the Chesapeake is the bible of the Chesapeake sailer and they said that Cherry Point is one of the finest anchorages on the Chesapeake. I learned that Cherry Point was for sale and bought it the day before the great-grandson of a previous owner arrived from Chicago to purchase it.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Family tennis tournaments, 3 generation street hockey games on the tennis court, frizbee golf, using the metal-detector down where McKeel's dock was used to unload materials taken from captured British ships, searching for indian artifacts, enjoying the Blackwater National Wildlife Sanctuary, etc.
