About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8) Private deck and dock

This simple, self-catering cottage welcomes you to pause and enjoy the beauty of the Chester River. Water views from every window connects you to the flowing water and the expansive outdoors; the southern exposure welcomes spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Relaxation and inspiration is abundant in this buffer zone!

Located close to both Chestertown and Rock Hall, it is an ideal gathering space for families and friends with many activities available in the area. By boat this energetic space is located near Comegy Byte, the Langford Creek and the Corsica River. There is a boat launch within 1/4 mile of the house and a boat slip at the house; water depth is 2.5 feet MLT. Fishing from the 70 ' dock does not require a license.

For outside gathering, there is a large deck by the water with tables for dining; a picnic table under the shade of a holly tree and a water view bistro table and pergola beside the house. Your personal ebb and flow is honored inside by a large living area that supports two places for seating and for eating. Come and fall in love with this retreat; return often!

About Jared Miller

I started visiting this general area over 30 years ago and was captured by the essence of a waterside community. I am a board certified holistic nurse, retreat leader, speaker and coach that embraces the concept of sea glass as a symbol of transformation ~ becoming stronger and more beautiful with winds, waves and sand.

Jared Miller purchased this house in 1993

Why Jared Miller chose Eastern Shore

There is a unique aspect of the Eastern Shore of Maryland - it draws your spirit to the landscape, the water, the wildlife and the expansive sky. I love knowing that this space is literally connected to all others by the water - the Chester River connects to the Chesapeake Bay and then to the Atlantic Ocean and then to... The Kent County area is rich with artists of all kinds, wonderful restaurants, local theatre and sweet little shops. Having Washington College nearby is a joy with their educational and inspiring venues. After 23 years I am still awed by the sunrises and sunsets from the house as well as the peace and serenity of the house.

What makes this house unique

The house is within 1/4 mile of a public launch on the Chester River. Watching or playing on the water and observing the watermen, boaters and waterfowl from the house/dock.

Perfect spot for our family gathering - amazing scenery and very comfortable/beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

Your home is so inviting - all the furnishings are beautiful and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. Of course, the best part is sitting in the comfortable deck furniture enjoying the sunrise. It is breathtaking. My partner loved his kayak excursion too. Many thanks for providing us the perfect place to retreat to after the wedding festivities concluded.

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The layout of the house is very nice with lots of seating and plenty of dining space. The kitchen was well laid out, well lit, and well equipped.

The majority of our time was spent outside fishing from the dock/pier. Over the space of a few days we caught about 50 fish, mostly white perch, croakers, and catfish. The view from the dock in the evening was lovely as we watched the sunset. We would definitely return again!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed ourselves. The property is beautiful. We enjoyed sitting on the dock at night and watching the amazing sunsets. The house is very well equipped and very open. The pictures are great but don't do the house justice. Plenty of room for everyone. We will definitely keep this house on our list for next year!

Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a great vacation home, this is the place to stay! The house was perfect for our group of six. Lots of seating for relaxing and dining. The kitchen was very nice and we cooked most of our meals there. We fished off the dock every day and had a lot of fun doing it! A couple of our group used the kayaks there as well. All in all, a very relaxing and fun stay!

An amazing vacation! What a wonderful stay at this stunning property. The week was up before we knew it. The location offers utter relaxation. We have already started talking about next year. The place was beautiful inside and out. Well equipped kitchen with everything that one could need even though we ate out most nights. So much to do and too little time!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this gem!! Thanks for everything!!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

It was just great! We were a group of 3 families, and every single one of us tremendously enjoyed the house, the property, the area. Very nice place, very relaxing. The house is great - very well equipped, nice and comfortable. The dock and picnic areas are where we spent the majority of out time. It was very relaxing! Overall it is a very lovely place, and I highly recommend it.
