About The Owner

When growing up my parents had a fishing charter business on the Chesapeake Bay, and I fell in love with spending time on the water. I worked hard to make my dream a reality and enjoy sharing my shore home with my family. The joy of watching the kids catch their first crab or searching for swans nests in the spring never gets old. Having this much nature at your doorstep is a simple pleasure we're lucky to have and happy to share.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1997

Why The Owner chose Queenstown

The Eastern Shore of Maryland is a nature lovers paradise, Migratory Geese, Blue Heron, Swans and Osprey are just wonderful to view, and add a peaceful element to a hectic profession I've chosen.

What makes this cottage unique

Famous for the Chesapeake Blue Crab, the Wye River never disappoints, the crab bounty is excellent. Secondly, exists no commercial business, therefore the waters are pristine and perfect for swimming, kayaking, and wildfowl sightings. Its not unusual in the fall to spot a deer or two swimming across the river!!

Perfect Family House on the Wye

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our Cove on the Wye. This house is nicely decorated but not too cluttered or fragile. The deck with retractable awning, small pavilion (perfect for eating crabs) and the pool makes the outside are very enjoyable. The area is very relaxing and the Wye River may be the prettiest on the Chesapeake. Dawn provided most everything we needed. The dock is very shallow at low tide but we knew that and our 17 ft Carolina Skiff had no problems. I strongly recommend this house.

Another Fantastic Stay at Wye River Cape

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Wye River Cape and, once again, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The home is charming and the views are lovely. The porch is perfect for relaxing and watching family members as they fish off the dock. The pool is refreshing and the interior of the home is comfortable and welcoming. We hated to leave and look forward to another visit next year!

Wonderful Family Vacation Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed Dawn's home. It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The swimming pool was a great bonus especially since it was in the 90s the week we were there. Dawn was very easy to deal with and very kind. Her home is close to Annapolis and Washington DC if you wish to do some sightseeing.

Great family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect. From swimming to fishing, to grilling steaks, enjoying coffee on the deck to playing cards and boardgames. This was a great vacation place to spend quality family time. This home was fully stocked with every kitchen tool you needed, extra plates and utensils and plenty of fresh towels. The street is very quiet and the house was clean, the beds were comfortable. Only 35 minutes to Naval Academy and easy ride. I would definitely recommend this vacation rental!!! Owner has fantastic customer service as well!

Perfect get-away

  • 4 of 5

The house is cozy but oh-so comfortable; the pics do not do it justice. Dawn is super accommodating and easy to work with. Back patio so picturesque and dock just steps away. We did struggle with our speed boat during low tide in the cove. And it could be the (late August) month, but the water was not swimmable in the cove (have to boat further out to the pristine river). But the protected river area was so calm for amazing tubing & waterski-ing!

We also loved the pool; and visiting small nearby towns Stevensville and Centreville. Overall, we had a blast mixed with relaxation on the Wye River Cove.

Peace and Relaxation on the Wye

  • 5 of 5

My small family and I stayed at this beautiful property for a long weekend to celebrate my son's 14th birthday. He brought two friends along and they all had a blast.

The home itself is lovely. The owner clearly takes pride in her home and it shows in the decorating and cleanliness of the home and property. The master bedroom is quite spacious and the two bedrooms on the first floor were perfect for the three teenage boys (in fact, there was room for one more on a trundle bed.)

The pool was refreshing and we all spent many hours swimming and playing games. The dock is a great place to fish and the boys each caught a few small fish. The owner allowed us use of her canoe; the boys thoroughly enjoyed their time on the water.

The back deck is heaven. My husband and I spent countless hours watching the boys fish, watching the birds, and listening to the frogs and crickets.

Our last evening was spent roasting marshmallows and chatting by the fire. I cannot put into words the pure relaxation this property provides. We will be rebooking for a week next summer, for sure!

Thank you for your hospitality.
