Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: 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).

Why the Owner Chose Saint Michaels, MD, USA:
The proximity to the beautiful harbor and to almost everything in Town, the architecture and the historic character of the area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
