Waterfront Cottage with Private Dock, 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath
Jacque and Patrick
About Jacque and Patrick
We arrived in Tilghman Island in 1996 in search of a watermen community much like that of Half Moon Bay (CA) from where we came. We have spent the last 15+ years developing Tilghman Landing into a Chesapeake Bay retreat that we love to share. In addition to building our waterfront cottages, we spend our time fishing, crabbing, boating and enjoying the beauty of our Bay-side retreat. Our cottages are open and airy – with ceiling fans throughout and a nice almost constant breeze blowing across the Bay. We have a hammock and beach chairs available for watching the evening sunset. The property is private, quiet and perfect for a romantic getaway or family get together.
Jacque and Patrick purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Jacque and Patrick chose Tilghman Island
Tilghman Island is the East Coast version of Half Moon Bay, California with its colorful history, abundant seafood throughout the seasons (fish, crabs and oysters), maritime activities (boating, kayaking, fishing, jet skiing) and California Sunsets over the Bay. We are also about a mile from Poplar Island (directly off our pier) where a successful restoration effort led by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has returned the island to 1,140 acres. When work on Poplar Island is complete the island will be a maze of smaller islands, ponds, channels and marshes. Ospreys, egrets, terns, herons, eagles, double-breasted cormorants, black ducks and other wild fowl have already discovered an enlarged Poplar Island – a true bird-watching opportunity. We are located about 2 hours from Baltimore, Washington DC and Philadelphia, PA. Our guests come from all over the world to experience all that the Chesapeake Bay has to offer.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our cottage is very private at the end of a quiet dead-end road. Our guests often set up bocce ball and volleyball nets and we have a horseshoe pit for some friendly competition. On Saturday night, depending upon the season, we will often cater a Crab or Oyster Feast in the Crab Shack for our guests who want this Maryland Eastern Shore experience. There are year-round festivals and holiday events, an extensive bike trail, world class restaurants, shopping and cultural centers – Tilghman Watermen Museum, Philips Wharf Environmental Center and St. Michael’s Maritime Museum. The Lady Patty, one of the last remaining sailing skipjacks is available for a sunset or daytime sail – within walking distance of our cottages. We have 2 docks that are perfect for sunbathing, crabbing, fishing or just enjoying a glass of wine while watching the amazing sunset. We live on the property and are therefore available to assist with special requests.

Felt like Home.
I enjoy using the rental Apps, I’d much rather settle in a home for vacation than a hotel. At Jacques house it felt like an extension of home, for instance, most rentals are sparsely equipped, as if you’ll break everything or steal things that are better than your own, so you live without. I appreciated how well stocked the home was for our stay. I also really appreciated interacting with our hosts, very friendly, hospitable and sharing. Looking forward to going again!
Relax by the bay
Nice, quiet location right on Chesapeake Bay with a terrific view. We had a great birthday weekend and enjoyed the local crabfest, too! The owners were very nice and extremely accommodating.
Thank you for the great review - especially given the rough check in with the propane debacle. You were super great to have and we look forward to seeing you again in Tilghman!
The best weekend away!
We absolutely loved staying in the jellyfish house on Tilghman island! The house was super clean, the view spectacular and the owners were lovely. Out experience from the time we arrived till we pulled out was amazing! We can’t wait to go back!
It was so great meeting you and sharing Tilghman Landing. It makes us so happy to have people stay who seem to love it as much as we do! See you again soon!!
Awesome property great owners
I almost don’t want to share, places and owners like this bring out the selfish in me. I’d like to keep it all to myself. BEAUTIFUL location and Jacque and Patrick couldn’t be more accommodating! We will be back!
Peaceful Stay on the water
Thank you for opening your home and being so hospitable! We enjoyed our stay and will return!
We loved having you! Your children were fabulous and we were excited that they caught fish and had fun swimming and playing on the property. We look forward to having you back and will need to schedule a Crab Feast.

Just what we needed
I normally don't write reviews (although I read them so I probably should write them). In a nutshell we loved our trip to Tilghman's landing. We stayed at the Jellyfish cabin and it was perfect for us. The large window that makes up the whole bayside of the house is gorgeous and it helped us enjoy the scenery even while we were inside. I loved that we could swim right off of the dock and that it was standing depth for my six year old during low tide. The other part we loved was being able to bike the whole island. You have to bike on the main road and there is not any shoulder but lots of other people are biking and traffic drives slowly and infrequently. This made for many fun trips to the country store (great breakfast hoagies). Jacque and Patrick are so open kind and unobtrusive. She was very kind to my kids who were obsessed with their cats and love to ask many, many questions. We had relatively good weather although we could only boat one day because of the wind. Even with that challenge we loved how much there was to do on the island and in St. Michael's. It really was a great way for us to reconnect.
Thank you for such a kind review. We loved having you here and your kids were amazing - our kitties loved them too! Next time you visit we need to do a proper Tilghman Landing crab feast. Thank you too for all of the gardening tips! It was great to meet you all! Jacque and Patrick
Our property overlooks the Poplar Island Bird Sanctuary which is being preserved and developed by the Government. We have hundreds of species of all types of birds including Bald Eagles, Osprey, Herons, and many more. We are walking distance to several marinas where you can rent kayaks, jet skis and fishing trips. We are also walking distance to Philips Wharf Environmental Center and voyages on The Lady Patty - one of the last sailing Skipjacks in the world.
