The truly special and recently restored historic Thomas Blades House is centrally located in the Historic District of St. Michaels, a few steps from the Town Park with magnificent waterviews. It is a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom vacation cottage.

The house is very comfortable and beautifully decorated with period and reproduction furniture. Perfectly suited for a small family or one or two couples. The house is also an ideal romantic getaway for a couple. The large family room and big back porch create an ideal environment for relaxing!

The house was built around 1850 by Thomas Blades, a young sailor.

To the rear of the original house on the first floor is a KITCHEN area connected to a large wood paneled FAMILY ROOM. There is a half bath off of the family room.The rear of the family room opens up by French doors to a large outdoor PORCH with ceiling fan and dining area. There is a deck to the rear of the porch for outdoor grilling.

About Thomas Byrne

I purchased and restored the nearby Thomas Harrison House (VRBO 198445) in 1991. As my interest in the area grew, I purchased and restored the Thomas Blades House as well as the Washington Melson House (VRBO 229963) and John Bruff House (click on link).

Thomas Byrne purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Thomas Byrne chose Eastern Shore

The proximity to the beautiful harbor and to almost everything in Town, the architecture and the historic character of the area.

What makes this cottage unique

Walking distance to everything...harbor, shops, restaurants, museums, library, tennis courts, community pool etc. Large screened porch off of the family room. Very comfortable and relaxing home.

Great little town!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time in St. Michaels. The cottage was perfect for the two of us. We enjoyed the screened in porch and fired up the weber grill for steaks one night.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay could not have been better. The house was great and the location perfect. Saw Tom, the owner a number of times and enjoyed talking to him and finding out the better places to eat at, to visit, etc. Will definitely be back and hopefully to the same house

Charming Cottage Near Everything

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights over New Year's Eve and had a quiet, relaxing time. Everything was just as pictured and reported by other travellers. Just a block off the main street with an Acme and lots or restaurants. And a few blocks from the harbor.
