Do not be alarmed by the plentiful deer, turtles, rabbits, ducks, bald eagles, ospreys, and other small wildlife that may pay you a quiet visit. Swim at the small private beach, fish and crab, enjoy boating/sailing/kayaking and all sorts of water sports, take a walk along the many public beaches, boardwalks, marinas and nature trails in the area. Admire the historic tobacco barns and organic farms, visit farmers markets, historic landmarks and Amish communities in Saint Mary’s County, and try the cuisine at the multiple seafood restaurants on Solomon’s Island. There are also plenty of museums including Annemarie Sculpture Garden and Calvert Marine Museum and diversions such as mini-golf, bowling, golf and tennis in the area.

magnificent property in a exceptional location
When you enter the property and you see the view on the river, you know you will love it. The house is cozy and classy and decorated very tastefully. We already stayed here a couple of times and whether with a small party or a large party, everybody finds his/her spot to relax: reading on the porch, playing the piano, sitting by the fire place, fishing on the deck... We dined outside under an old tree or in the warm dining room. The kids loved to play soccer, go kayaking, swimming, playing board games. Waking up with a splendid view on the river is another exceptional experience. The owners have tons of suggestions of activities to do: visit the museum on the Chesapeake, go hiking or biking in a national park, play golf... and they are very friendly and helpful.
Wonderful stay at the farmhouse on the bay!
The stay at the farmhouse was the perfect gathering in celebration of our daughter’s upcoming wedding. My nephews enjoyed the grand piano which entertained everyone. My parents enjoyed sitting out on the porch watching the sailboats go by. The dining room was very spacious for large families. My husband enjoyed fishing off the dock. Well worth the money for the fond family memories!
Perfectly beautiful house and location
This is a spot which is really ideal for a quiet vacation with friends and family. The house is lovely and spacious. The property with its setting right on the river couldn't be nicer. The location is also excellent because for all the feeling of peace and solitude, you are still close to shops, beaches, restaurants and interesting state parks so there is plenty to do.
The first thing my daughter did was disown her shoes and climb a tree out back. The breeze off the Bay made even the hottest days nice, dinners on the front porch, playing on the beach, and a house with more places to play hide and seek than you could shake a stick at. Don't rent this place. We don't want the competition. ;-)
Our family had the opportunity to share this home with our friends this past summer.
Having several teenagers on board, we feared that the location would lack activities to keep
Turns out that we never got to complete the "places to go" list simply because the house, the location, the views, are all so wonderfully relaxing that we couldn't get enough of them!
I would highly recommend this home. The house is a combination of a historical farm house with the
modern day amenities. It's beautiful. The home owners were wonderful. Quick to respond to inquiries.
We hope to visit Sinople Farm again!
Lovely farmhouse with stellar views
We spent a week in July at Sinople Farm. The farmhouse is lovely, with many modern amenities. And you can't beat the view! Close to many activities for all ages. The owners are very responsive with all questions that you have. Thanks to Diep and Jean for a charming, relaxing escape.
