About Kelley Cox

Your hosts, Kelley and Jerry Cox, each hold a 50-ton Captain’s license and have been involved in Chesapeake Bay research for a combined total of 55 years. Jerry grew up on a Tobacco farm across the Bay in Calvert County and worked as a research vessel Captain for the State of Maryland. Jerry’s roots are from nearby Hooper’s Island, where his great, great grandfather William Hooper was a schooner captain aboard the Florence Lee. Kelley’s ancestors have been in this area since the early 1600’s when Edward Comins and his wife Elizabeth served as indentured servants of William Claiborne on Kent Island. Her Grandfather, Russell Phillips, was one of President Harry Truman’s favorite fishing boat captains during his frequent retreats to the Eastern Shore. Kelley is a Biologist and the Executive Director of Phillips Wharf Environmental Center.

Kelley Cox purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Kelley Cox chose Maryland

Kelley's parents built the cottage as a weekly vacation rental in the 1970's. Kelley & Jerry decided the added income would help out and started renting the cottage as a vacation rental about 6 years ago.

What makes this cottage unique

The property overlooks Knapps Narrows one of the busiest waterways on the East Coast you can relax on the porch and watch all the boats going by. We also have a commercial waterman using part of our dock so fresh seafood is available to our guests. Tilghman Island is a fishing village on the Chesapeake Bay so you can fish and crab off of our dock. We have a screened porch with a gas grill for cooking out and a hot tub to relax in after a taxing day of shopping in nearby St. Michaels. We have a park nearby for bird watching and exercising in and it has play equipment for the kids.

Graduation Surprise

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay. Watching all different types of boats coming and going was nice. The family caught tons of fish. Watching the sunrise was amazing. We were lucky to be there to see a beautiful full moon over the water. The owners were very nice.

Urban Escape

  • 5 of 5

Closest you can get to the water without a boat! The very attentive owner, water views, and watching the boats go by make a stay in this recently redecorated cottage a special treat. This budget friendly bungalow with a screened in porch was perfect for our 3 day getaway. Good for restoring the batteries and experiencing life on a small, beautiful island. If you want to do some serious shopping, wine tasting or have a gourmet meal, St. Michaels is only about 12 miles away.

A peaceful lovely spot!

  • 5 of 5

Right on the water so we could see the work boats come and go and view the nearby osprey nest. The cottage has a wonderful screened porch and a sunrise view worth waking up for. The owners are very accommodating. We can't wait to return again!

Cozy and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to curl up and read a good book or sit on the screened in porch and watch the passing boats, you will love this cute cottage. I brought a crockpot but other than that everything you need is provided and the owner is available but respectful of your privacy. I will be going back.

We are on an Island that is 3 miles long and 1 mile wide.

Historically a fishing village, there are lots of ways to get out on the water here. We have 5 restaurants each with it's own specialties, but fresh seafood is a must here.
