All bedrooms have ample dresser and closet space. The master bedroom with its water views has a private bath, queen size bed, with a 27' LED flat screen HD TV (basic cable only) with DVD player.

Gather in the living room with plenty of over-sized seating and enjoy the 50' flat screen TV with full cable, and Blu-ray disc player. The large picture windows offer a wonderful view of the dock and creek as well as the in-ground pool and patio. You'll love visits during the cooler months when you can build a fire in our living room's raised hearth fireplace. If you travel with your laptop, our home is equipped with wireless Internet.


Choose a good book from our collection in the mahogany lined den, connect your gaming system into the 32' flat screen HD TV, watch a movie on the Blu-ray disc player from our selection of DVD's, or choose from a wide selection of board/card games for all ages. The game room adjacent to the kitchen contains a foosball table, a corn hole game, and ping pong table for family fun or take advantage of the 4 adult bikes (helmets included).

The creek views and wildlife sounds provide a soothing and relaxing environment. Lounge by the in-ground pool,or relax either in the screened porch or by the lily pond. With 3' MLW in Jenkins Creek, you can launch your boat at the nearby public ramp, spend your days exploring, fishing, and crabbing in the Choptank and nearby rivers and creeks, and tie up at our dock in the evening.

Cambridge town center is 4 minutes away with restaurants, shopping, art galleries, antique shops, museums, and the history and charm of one of the oldest towns on the Eastern shore. Discover the story of Harriett Tubman and the Underground Railroad, visit the Horn Point marine research facility to learn how oysters are 'grown,' explore the nearby Blackwater Reserve, or visit the Sailwinds Visitors Center to learn about other nearby attractions. Explore the surrounding countryside and the Neck district, take the Oxford ferry across the Tred Avon river and hang out on the dock or shop in St Michaels, immerse yourself in the historic district of Easton, or make the trip to Tilghman Island or Hoopers Island to experience the world of the working waterman on the Eastern Shore. Day trips include dipping your toes in the Atlantic Ocean or hanging out on the beach in Ocean City one hour east of Cambridge, exploring historic Annapolis and the Naval Academy 60 miles west just over the Bay Bridge, or spending the day at Baltimore's Inner Harbor or Washington, D.C., both about 1.5 hours from Cambridge.

We hope you enjoy the Cambridge area and our home as much as we do!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Cambridge, MD, USA:
For years we crossed the Choptank River bridge and drove through Cambridge on our way to vacations in Ocean City and were intrigued by its quaintness. We spent a few long weekends exploring the area, decided to purchase a home, and found our property on Jenkins Creek. We've decided to share our home as a vacation property. We hope you enjoy our home and the Cambridge area as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is located at the end of Jenkins Creek Road overlooking the water and only several minutes from downtown Cambridge with its unique shops and restaurants. Minimal local traffic make walking, jogging, and bike riding safe and pleasurable. The school and city park at the town end of Jenkins Creek Road (1 1/4 miles away) have tennis and basketball courts, a baseball diamond, play areas for kids, and views of the Choptank river. Great Marsh Park, with its public boat launch, fishing docks, and picnic areas is only about 2 miles away. Also, because of our location, you can explore the Cambridge area without the hassle of the beach traffic on Route 50.
