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 Eastern Shore

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 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.

Wanted to stay longer!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (parents, two tweens) enjoyed our stay greatly! The photos don't show the extent of the beauty of this well-appointed home. We enjoyed canoeing and fishing, and dining on crabs and oysters at nearby Chesapeake Bay eateries. The pool was a cool respite from the heat of the day! Dawn, always helpful, answered all questions and offered great recommendations. We had a wonderful time at Wye River Cape and would love to return one day.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay at the Wye. My brother joined the Ironman in Cambridge, MD and me, my parents, my husband and 1 year old kid took the opportunity to make it as our little vacation trip. I chose the place mainly because Cambridge hotels and most houses in the area on the vrbo site were all booked. And I'm so glad for my choice, after a careful consideration, of course. The pool was perfect even for my kid. The view of the river from our house is perfect for picture taking. And we had everything we need to cook our own food and also barbecue. Grocery was accessible. There are good restaurants not far away.There's also a premium outlet nearby. Dawn is a gracious host, easy to reach and kind and patient to us esp.when we inadvertently stained her furniture. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks Dawn! I'll definitely choose the Wye again if ever there's a reason for us to be in the Eastern Shore area like maybe another vacation.

Wonderful spot

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband, son and mother in law because we were attending a wedding at the Aspen Wye River conference center near by. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The owner was friendly and easy to deal with - always responded promptly to my emails and questions and was very accommodating.

When we arrived, the house was spotless, which is always a big relief after a long day of travel. The upstairs suite is really large and open and light and airy, and the downstairs bedrooms were ore than comfortable. We enjoyed meals out on the porch, walking down to the dock with our toddler, running in the grass and taking walks through some of the neighborhoods.

The location is close to the grocery stores near the Narrows, the outlets, and convenient to DC and Baltimore.

No hesitations about this property at all!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My cousins and I needed a place to stay for a golf weekend and we couldn't have been happier with this property. The house was very clean and we had plenty of room for the four of us. The bedrooms were spacious and quite comfortable. Located on the Wye River it was a picturesque setting and close to many of the great Eastern Shore crab houses, restaurants and golf courses. The owner was great and made sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely go back.
