Hello! :) I'm Kim and I am married to Steve. I own this rental property with my brother, Gene. Steve and I have 4 kids; ages 30, 25, 23, and 18. Steve is a Systems Engineer, who runs his own business, plus has a part-time job as well in computers. In his "spare" time, he keeps the books (QuickBooks!) for our vacation properties and also mows a lot of grass & cleans all the propane grills between Guests!!!! I manage our vacation homes, doing the advertising & marketing (updating this site, taking photos, keeping track of bookings). I do all the cleaning (tons of laundry, bed-making & bathroom cleaning!), furnishing & decorating, and keeping up with all the paperwork and paying all the bills on time. My most important job is communicating with our amazing Guests through texts, emails and phone calls; I guide them in planning their vacation and promptly answer any questions, and on arrival day, we greet our Guests and show them around the property (their house, the river & kayaks), ensuring they feel "at home" at their "home away from home". We have been told our hospitality is "second to none", which is the highest compliment, and I know it is because we truly love what we do and when you love what you do, it shows!! In our spare time, we love kayaking on the Elk River. When we get a day away, we love a trip to Rehoboth Beach! ... Gene is a super-hard worker, both with his own Masonry business (working 6 & 7 days a week) and here on the property in his "spare" time. He is the one who takes care of the dirt lane and all the maintenance work around here, for the property itself plus all the homes. This is a huge job and he's on top of it! He has one son who is 24. Gene enjoys being on the water in his bass boat & riding his motorcycle. He also loves deep-sea fishing and traveling to Chincoteague Island.
Why Kim chose North East
Our Great-Grandfather bought this property because it was his favorite fishing spot! This beautiful property has been in our family since 1918 when our Grandfather moved here from NY with his parents; he was 5 years old. He grew up here, then our Dad grew up here, and then Gene and I grew up and now our own kids have grown up here! ... When we were growing up, our Grandparents rented the property for summer rentals and those are our favorite childhood memories, so we are so excited to be bringing that back! We love sharing this unique little cove along the Elk River- it is unique as there is not quite anywhere like it that I have seen! It is truly special!
What makes this House unique
Kayaking... just being out on the water, especially on a quiet evening, watching the Bald Eagles fly overhead, Osprey hovering mid-air and then diving down to grab a fish from the water, seeing the families of Geese and Mallards, Blue Heron and once in awhile a white one, lots of different birds, fish jumping, gentle waves, a warm breeze, maybe deer playing, or fox, or raccoon walking along the shoreline... this is why I love this property. It is so peaceful and serene - good for the mind and the soul!!
