Property description

Located on the Chesapeake Bay side of Tilghman Island, this beautiful two-story, two bedroom cottage is available for rent throughout the year. Our cottages have stunning views of the bay from the second floor bedrooms - and private balcony. There are hardwood floors throughout, a full service kitchen with dishwasher and microwave and outdoor gas grill. Enjoy the use of the 3 shared docks, crab traps, the Crab Shack (with wood burning stove, small drink fridge, CD player/radio and DVD player) and a Pergola with seating for 4. The dazzling sunsets over the Bay are extraordinary as though they were choreographed just for us. The chatty waterfoul are fascinating to watch and we get daily visits from a wide array of birds, migrating geese, ducks (and ducklings), osprey and the occasional bald eagle. This is the perfect romantic getaway. An extensive bike trail (the new Michener Byway) extends from Tilghman to St. Michaels and out to Oxford via the Belleview/Oxford Ferry. We are minutes (walking distance) from world class restaurants, kayaking, fishing, skipjack tours, historic St. Michaels, and Antique Shops.

We have hundreds of species of all types of birds including Bald Eagles, Osprey, Herons, and many more.

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Tilghman Island, MD, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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 3 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.
