Gorgeous setting, beautiful home and pool.

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and the setting is spectacular. Every day of our visit was filled with sightings of bald eagles, great blue heron, hummingbirds and more. There are many places nearby to go for day trips and/or lunch at the many charming fishing towns nearby. Some days were spent just lounging by the pool. The two screened porches provided the perfect place for eating meals or lounging with family. We loved this place and were genuinely sad to leave.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure meeting your family. Glad you also enjoyed the eagle sightings in addition to all the other activities during the week. We appreciate knowing your family had such wonderful time (and your dog too)!

Splendid hideaway right on the water in Maryland Eastshore

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week at this hidden gem. Great location at the water, large and very clean pool, two great screened in patios to spend the day if you are not enjoying yourself even more with the canoes or the trails where you can cycle or walk. The kitchen has all the appliances you would ever need. The AC was very welcome as it can be hot and humid in mid-August. Great with two golden retrievers as there is a lot of space in and around the house, and good dog walking up and down the long drive way or around the field. Nice attached office if you need to stay in touch a bit with home or work - but hopefully not too much as not too miss out on the many relaxing features of this place.

The house is beautiful. Two gorgeous screened in porches from which to watch the river. Lovely pool and an outside shower which was perfection itself! A tranquil hideaway.

My wife and I could not have enjoyed it more! We are planning to return.

  • 5 of 5

I was not originally planning on joining my wife because of my work. However after one day there my wife called and said "I must join her as this is just beautiful!" So, I came and was so glad I did. The property was exactly as advertised. But I told the owner the pictures of the property simply did not do it justice and I recommended that a professional photographer be utilized! The home, the land including the pool were simply beautiful. The only part of of our vacation which was nicer were the owners themselves. We have become friends and have invited them to visit us. Need we say more!!! Anne and Phil

Great farm house on a beautiful piece of of property.

  • 4 of 5

The week we were visiting it was hot and we spent hours at the pool. One of the most relaxing vacations we ever took. Easy commute to Oxford and St. Michaels for shopping and dinner. Kayaking was also great, many areas were available to stop and explore. Thank you Leslie, Thom, and Molly for allowing us to enjoy such a beautiful place.
