About Dawn Lednum

A 4th generation native to the Eatern Shore. I grew up here and never left...I own Chesapeake Bay Real Estate Plus,LLC in St.Michaels.

Dawn Lednum purchased this house in 2005

Why Dawn Lednum chose Claiborne

I looked for years for the perfect spot.I grew up in Claiborne and always wanted a house on Eastern Bay. This property had it all...Big views,cove views,protected shoreline,beach,sunsets and a stone jetty to fish on any time the mood hit. It was large enough to build our vacation rental, 2 piers and a swimming pool for all.

What makes this house unique

We custom built the house to take advantage of the amazing views of Eastern Bay.Each bedroom walks out on the porches.

We are 5 minutes to St.Michaels and less than 2 hours to Ocean City, Baltimore, Washington DC and BWI Airport.

Endless fun and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our ninth year coming to Endless Sunsets and it never disappoints. Mimi and Dawn could not be more delightful. The house is spacious and clean. The wraparound porch, dock, pool, kayaks, and beach provide endless entertainment for either activity or relaxing. The views are amazing and the house is aptly named. Close proximity to restaurants and shopping in St. Michaels. A true gem!

Stress free week!

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the bay access that this property offered. We brought a daysailer that we were able to roll right down to the sandy beach on the property, although there is a boat ramp a very short distance away as well. The little cove with the docks is protected by an historic jetty that makes boat storage easy. Great sunsets as advertised but we should have put in a request for more wind! Very nice public beach right next door and plenty of kayaks and paddles.

The house is very comfortable. AC worked well and the decks and spacious family room are great places to hang out in the evening. I learned how to crab from a very friendly guest of the other house on the property--the catch was a little sparse but by the end of 5 days we had had our fill. Nice restaurant less than 5 minutes away. The other residents on the property did not pose any privacy issues--we had unlimited use of the nicely maintained pool.

Some negatives included a clogged upstairs bathtub from which I removed a wad of hair after removing the drain plug and a clogged coffee pot which we treated with a vinegar rinse and is now working like a charm. The owners on the property were very responsive to other requests (paper towels, napkins, grill propane) but I didn't bother them with the tub/coffee maker as those minor repairs made it truly feel like home.

Other maintenance issues like dirty/missing return air register air filters and burned out lightbulbs need to be addressed but did not affect our stay. Another functional baby gate would be welcome as several of the wooden ones are in disrepair. Kayaks need some repairs to their outfitting to be more comfortable. Grill is rusted out in spots so it is difficult to maintain the temperature, and most of the remotes had no working batteries. Overall these were minor issues.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend this to family and friends.

Amazing Chesapeake Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (3 young kids) stayed at Dawn and Mimi's place and loved it! It was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted to experience the Chesapeake for all that it has to offer and still be able to drive to St Michaels or Tilghman with ease. We crabbed off the docks (and steamed them too) fished on the jetty and the dock and took the kayaks out several times. I loved how you had a quaint little town of SM but then you drive 5-10 mins to Endless Sunsets and really experience being away from it all. The house was perfect: spacious, clean and THE VIEWS! What drew us to the house were the Sunsets and they didn't disappoint. We sat outside every night and watched the Sunsets. Couldn't have asked for a better setup to experience the true Chesapeake and Dawn and Mimi were awesome and helped with anything we needed. Can't wait to go back!

A beautiful and idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfectly situated in a quiet area with a fantastic view of the water. Sadly we were not so lucky with the weather but can only imagine that the sunsets and rises from the balcony would be quite special. Our only criticisms would be that the cutlery and some implements could do with replacing and the dishwasher needed a real lime scale treatment! Some decor felt a little dated. Access to kayaks was a real bonus and if the weather had been kinder to us our boys would have been out more and the access to a small

Public beach was a treat. It was perfectly situated to feel away from any crowds but close enough for access to all the local activities etc. A great retreat for a family or two families combined. The owners live next door and were super friendly and helpful. We would definitely consider returning in the warmer weather to use the pool and swim off the deck!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and constructive feedback. We are replacing the dishwasher tomorrow and have purchased new cutlery and replaced some pots and pans. Hope to see you back at the property very soon!

The views were beautiful, but there are 4 other buildings on top of the house. It was uncomfortable.

  • 2 of 5

It would have been nice if the listing were more forthcoming about how close the other structures are to the house listed. We pulled up to the rental and there was the main house where the owners live (where the pool is actually located), a dilapidated shed, and a small pool house practically on top of each other. At any given time, there were about 10 other cars in the driveway and people all over the place. We thought we would have some privacy, but there were always other people around. It was awkward and strange. Also, the driveway has large potholes and practically flooded out due to the rain we experienced. The property gets very muddy. The owner was kind and accommodating, but like I said, the whole layout of the property was off-putting. The house was pretty and clean, but we had to buy fly strips our second day there and, by the time we threw them out, we had killed close to 100 flies.

We had fun on the kayaks, but the weather during our stay kind of interfered with our other plans - clearly, no ones fault. We love the Chesapeake Bay, but will absolutely choose a different place to rent the next time we stay.

Owner's Response: We were dismayed to have received your feedback regarding our property. It is very important to us that our guests enjoy the time they spend here. In the 10 plus years we've been renting no one has mentioned the proximity of the other buildings, we will add a new picture to better illustrate their locations. Unfortunately the weather is out of our hands. We were aware of the driveway situation and had a contractor scheduled to make the repairs. Unfortunately May was an extremely rainy month and put them way behind schedule, hence the muddy potholes. The weekend you stayed with us our children were graduating from high school and college so there were extra cars and visitors. We are glad you felt the rental was clean and pretty.
