Why Teri Baer chose Cambridge
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!
What makes this House unique
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.

School break, long weekend, family relaxation time
This property is amazing! The beautifully manicured yard is large and provides a beautiful space to walk around and enjoy nature. The dock welcomes you to sit and relax by the water. Our kids loved the tetherball and huge tree that served as a fort. We all appreciated the idyllic pond and the calmness of the flowing water. This house is literally at the end of the road and allows you to feel secluded even though you aren't far away from town at all.
In the evening, we loved the sounds of the geese and what we thought was an owl. The main room made for a great family movie night with super comfortable couches. We were able to connect to Netflix! Teri and Lauren have provided pretty much everything you need to be comfortable. We even baked brownies for a warm dessert one evening. The ping pong table was a blast.
In the morning, our kids loved the wood paneled den where there are numerous books and DVDs waiting. It allowed for some mom and dad sleeping in time!
While we were in town, we visited the Harriet Tubman museums both in downtown Cambridge and south of the town near the Blackwater Refuge. Important history to share with the kids. We also spent time in the Blackwater Refuge seeing all sorts of animals like bald eagles and even a 5 foot long Eastern Black rat snake - yikes! While not too close, we also took the hour long drive to Assateague National Seashore to see the wild horses. Worth a trip and spent some time for lunch in the town of Berlin. On the way home, we stopped at the town of Saint Michaels and visited the maritime museum. Amazing place with lots to do for the kids.
Thanks to Teri and Lauren for opening their home for us to share! We made great memories that will last a lifetime!
A beautiful spot!
This home is a perfect blend of quiet beauty and opportunity for active pursuits. For relaxed dinners around the spacious dining room table overlooking the water to happy, lively restaurants with great food only a couple of miles away. The owners are kind, available for questions and clear with their instructions. We love it here!
Spacious, Modern Home on Jenkins Creek
Teri’s home was beyond our expectations! The photographs are accurate however don’t do this home & property justice. The living areas are spacious, modern and comfortable. There is more than enough seating for relaxing or eating for 8 plus the covered screened porch added an additional table and chairs for dining & just hanging out with stunning views of Jenkins Creek. The home includes 3 bedrooms with comfortable queen or twin beds, linens and 2 full bathrooms, including the private master bathroom with stand-up shower.
The chef’s kitchen was a delight - modern and well equipped with all the appliances, dish ware & cookware you could need. The fully stocked spice pantry was a pleasant surprise as was finding staples like oil, sugar & flour.
Although we couldn’t take advantage of the in-ground pool in mid-October, there is a hot tub for relaxing as well as chairs in a sunny spot near a pond or you could sit on the dock & enjoy incredible sunsets. There is no end of outdoor space to roam and enjoy.
Don’t hesitate to rent this charming home for your next vacation. You won’t be disappointed!
Wonderful Cambridge Getaway
Every aspect of the experience was positive. The owner responded to our inquiry right away, allowing us to book last minute for the weekend. Property exceeded expectations - beautiful setting on Jenkins Creek, easy access to Cambridge and the Blackwater Refuge and Harriett Tubman Center. Comfortable beds, all amenities as advertised, super clean, and positive, helpful communication. Minimal hassle for arrival and departure. Thank you!
Wonderful. Plans in the works for another stay
Lounging By The Pool And Catching Crabs
We had a great week relaxing in the pool and hot tub. We caught crabs right off the dock. The kitchen is well equipped so we had everything we needed for family dinners. The garden is a nice touch too, tending to it was therapeutic and the tomatoes were delicious! The owners Teri and Lauren were available immediately if we had any questions. We really love the vibe of this house! We're planning on extending our stay to 2 weeks next year!
