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 Chestertown

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.

Breathe!

  • 5 of 5

No need to ever leave once you get here. Bring your own "eats and drinks" and sit back and let nature entertain you. A great place to do some relaxing, reading, deep thinking and enjoy family and/or friends. Once you arrive, you'll never want to leave!

Thanks to the Miller Family who allow us all to share their beloved home. Honestly, I don't know if I'd be so generous to share it, as I'd be there at all times!

With appreciation: Joyce Pfautz and family

Perfect Getaway. Great Setup and Service. Amazing Value.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit, and we will be going back! Jared is an amazing host, and the place is superb! Quaint, serene location, close to town but tucked away just far enough for ultimate privacy. They thought of everything when decorating and stocking for comfort, and convenience. I highly recommend this waterfront retreat!

Just the very BEST

  • 5 of 5

Cliff Point Retreat is the most relaxing, charming and beautiful place to spend time. Sunny or rainy it does not matter. The view is all water. Even cooking in the kitchen you have the view.

A short drive to town for market and fresh produce over the pick up some fish and oysters and then back to the house it is. I really do not want to leave the property.

Sitting on the dock with wine and cheese we watched the sunset. Then in the morning we watched the sunrise as the moon set. Cliff Point is a magical place.

Additionally, the house is perfectly appointed and comfortable. We could not have been happier. My friends, here for the first time, said of all the places they have rented this was simply outstanding. I look forward to many happy returns!

Beautiful and cozy house at a lovely location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Cliff Point Retreat many times and love it! The house is so well appointed. It has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. The waterfront property always inspires a deep appreciation of the Chester River. While enjoying refreshments on the deck by the dock you can see beautiful clouds, birds, and a variety of boats. It is truly a relaxing home away from home!
