Property description

Come to Ransome's Chesapeake Retreats 'RCR', a private, 250-acre, waterfront estate with one mile of shoreline on the magnificent Chesapeake Bay of Maryland's Eastern Shore! 'RCR' is the ideal setting for Family vacations & reunions, Weddings, Corporate Seminars/Retreats, Club events and Weekend Getaways. Looking for a unique and 'extra'ordinary vacation location for your family this year? A place to relax in beautiful and peaceful surroundings, yet be 'close to it all'?

Our Chesapeake Bay estate is located just outside Cambridge, a quaint maritime town filled with history and tucked away on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Travel through the countryside James Michener wrote about in 'Chesapeake.' It is the perfect getaway for boating, fishing, golfing, shopping, sightseeing, playing games and just relaxing with family, friends and all who want to have fun while playing and/or working! Our estate offers you an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Chesapeake Bay shoreline!!

There are miles of walking paths and our boat dock/ramp offers direct access to the bay for water sports. Our facilities offer lots of places to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings - a 10'x 60' screened in porch, where great bay breezes pass thru, that overlooks a fenced-in pool, pond and the Chesapeake Bay itself. There are unparalleled views from all 3 homes and especially from the 2nd floor deck. Here, you can watch the sun come up on 1 side of our world & later that evening see a breathtaking - 'stop what you're doing & watch' sunset go down into the bay!!

Wildlife abounds; the surroundings are picturesque. You can go boating, crabbing and fishing on-site. The Blackwater Wildlife Refuge is our neighbor and offers more paths (for walking, hiking, and biking) and waterways (for canoe and kayaking). Boats, canoes, kayaks and bikes can be rented locally. Want to dine out or need milk, wine, etc - there is a restaurant & a grocery store in the watermen's town of Fishing Creek, just 5 minutes down the road.

Our multi-complex estate has a Family Room and a Great Room in the Main House. There is also a 30' x 30' meeting/rec room in the Fun Center where 40+ people can sit together for meals and/or meetings! Find all the amenities you will need to make memories that last a lifetime. We have thought of everything, so you don't have to!! Come and enjoy all blessings that our estate has in store for you!! Marie & Perce look forward to hearing from YOU!!
