Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

The recently restored historic Washington Melson House, located at 206 Locust St. is a 2 bedroom vacation cottage that is a short walk from all museums, parks, restaurants, churches and shops in St. Michaels!

The house was built around 1840 by Washington Melson, a sailor, believed to be one of two individuals who voted for Abraham Lincoln in the presidential election of 1860. The house was originally built at only 16 feet wide but enlarged to the current width soon thereafter.

The first floor of the original portion of the Melson House includes a living room and a dining room. To the rear of the original house on the first floor is a kitchen area which opens up by French doors to an outdoor patio. Also connected to the kitchen is a large family room with a queen sleep sofa. There is a half bath off the family room.

The second floor of the original portion of the Melson house is a large bedroom having two twin beds. The second floor to the rear of the house (accessed by a different staircase than that in the original portion), contains the master bedroom having a queen size bed. There is a full bathroom off this bedroom.

Very nice historical cottage

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect, walk to marina, museum, shops in town. If you want to enjoy St Michaels this is the perfect spot to do it from.

The cottage is nicely furnished and has a wonderful feel for an 1840s place.

The sofa in the living room is a bit understuffed and dusty but otherwise it's mostly a beautiful set of wood furniture and furnishings very nicely done.

historic cottage modern amenities

  • 4 of 5

You will love staying in this charming historic cottage in St Michaels. The American flag over the door is a welcome greeting. The kitchen is modern and even knives are sharp! There is a large pot for steaming crabs. The .first floor is spacious and furnished in rustic colonial style. Upstairs the ceilings are low.The beds are comfortable . Outside the kitchen entrance is a brick patio with a table and chairs.It is the perfect place for a glass of wine when the sun sets over the yardarms of the boats across the street in the pretty harbor.

Love this charming cottage.

We come to the wine festival and have stayed at this house two times. It is a great home with all the amenities and close walking distance to all the wine events.

Lovely cottage in amazing location

We were very pleased with our stay in a charming house so close to the water and the downtown. It was perfect for our family and a gorgeous base for the week. Highly recommend.
