Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in St. Michaels. The house was perfect for what we needed and Jackie was easy to get in touch with and work with. She gave us great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. I highly recommend staying in her home!

Comfortable home, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest vacations for our family. The house was pretty and comfortable. The sun room was an enjoyable place for meals and board games, as was the large dining room table. We spent a great deal of time in the large yard, looking onto the water, socializing, reading, and sleeping on all the Adirondack and lounge chairs. Kids used the clean pool a lot. Rented kayaks from Pedal & Paddle for a couple of days and really got to enjoy the water. House was a quick drive or bike ride to town, yet nice and quiet.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Booked the home for my family to stay all together for my daughters wedding weekend at CBMM. Worked out perfectly. Location was close but gave us room to get away from the town and enjoy time with each other. House is meticulously cared for, and we had a lot of comparisons as we had 220 guests attend the wedding staying all over St. Michaels. View was stunning from almost every room. Porch was our favorite. Plenty of room for our full house. All elements pleased the variety of my family members. Well appointed kitchen. Bathrooms at every turn. Large living room for that era. Spaciousness was key. A couch in the living room would've been nice for Sunday football relaxation after a late night wedding. Pool area was perfect. Gorgeous view right on creek. Would definitely return! Felt a bit rushed at checkout. Hard to pack up 4 families at once but I guess rules are rules. Thank you to Jackie and Tina for understanding my family's needs and allowing me to relax about at least one element of a very stressful weekend. I've booked many rental properties and also had rental properties and this was a first class deal!
