Why the Owner Chose Cambridge, MD, USA:
The Cottage at Heron Cove sits on a point of land on Gary Creek once used as a lookout by Native Americans. Enjoy scenic views of a private nature preserve and a historical homestead dating back to the mid 1600's. From the porch you can see down to the Little Choptank River or up to the living history museum at Spocott Windmill A short seven miles drive into Cambridge finds one with a vast array of amenities to include golf, shops, museums, spas, fine dining, marinas, antiques, an airport, and just about anything else one would want on your vacation getaway. For your sightseeing pleasure you are approximately one and one half hours away from Ocean City and Assateague Island as well as 40 minutes from Easton and Oxford. A quick drive finds you at the Blackwater wildlife refuge; although, it is not uncommon to see eagles, geese, egrets, herons or the nesting osprey from your porch at "The Cottage". In spring and fall come and enjoy the cry of the loons as they rest on Gary Creek during their migration.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Peace, solitude, and immersion in nature. License free fishing and crabbing off the dock and 1000 feet of shore line.
