Property description

Please tell us a little about your family, who would be staying at the home, and the reason for your visit to Kent Island.
This home is a special place to us & has been in our family for over 50 years. Over the years we have made many updates to the home. The location is a 3 acre waterfront setting, on Cox Creek, that features incredible western views along with gorgeous sunsets. Relaxing in the 3 season sun room and watching the sunset is a must! Panoramic views of the water can be had from most rooms in the home. Central location allows for day trips to DC, Annapolis, Baltimore, & St. Michaels.
The home has approx 2500 square feet, a wonderful Great Room with 46' HDTV w/cable, fireplace, large Dining Room table that seats 10, & eat-in kitchen. There is a spacious Master Bedroom (queen bed) + Master Bath, Bedroom #2 has a queen bed, Bed #3 has 2 twin beds, Bedroom #4 is also the den off the Great Room & has a pullout sofa bed.
High Speed Internet Service is included.


Relax and enjoy the wonderful Chesapeake Bay! : Relax and enjoy the wonderful Eastern Shore of Maryland and Kent Island. Dine at Harris Crab House, The Narrows, The Fisherman's Inn, Hemingway's, or Annie's Restaurant (among many others). Golf at nearby Queenstown Harbor Golf (15 minutes away). Bike on the Cross Island Trail (5 minutes away). Kayak or Canoe at the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center (15 minutes away). Walk along the beaches at Terrapin Park or Mattapeake Beach (10 minutes away), Kentmorr Restaurant and Marina (10 minutes away, great beach to swim). Take scenic drives to many exciting areas on the Chesapeake Bay including the US Naval Academy in Annapolis (30 minutes) or the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels. Many outlet stores are also nearby in Queenstown. The best thing to do here is Nothing! Gazing at the water is a very popular activity. Fishing and Crabbing Trips may be arranged for an additional fee (possible departure right from our pier!).

How to find out about local events: Search 'Kent Island', 'Queen Anne's County', 'Talbot County', 'Kent County', and 'Anne Arundel County' for web sites and more activities. Kent Island is in Queen Anne's County.
