All bedrooms have a beautiful water views!
Imagine awaking to gorgeous sunrises, beautiful water views, and spending relaxing days among the natural surroundings of the eastern shore. Enjoy seeing the waterfowl passing overhead and landing just past the duck blind, while egrets, osprey, and other birds are nesting nearby.
Many activities for a unique eastern shore experience are only a few feet from your door! A short walk out onto the pier is all you need to go to try your luck at fishing, crabbing or wildlife photography. For a scenic a bike trip, ride over the historic Knapp's Narrow Bridge, along wide bike paths and through other charming towns of Wittman, Sherwood or St. Michael's. For a unique travel experience, take the ferry (by bike or car) to Historic Oxford.
Any day is a good day to charter a fishing trip, visit a lighthouse, go kayaking, dine out, or shop on Tilghman Island or in the most charming towns on the Eastern Shore: St. Michaels, Easton or Cambridge.
Have your next crab feast with friends and family, overlooking the water, with spectacular views of Skipjacks on Harris Creek- which is fed by one of the Chesapeake Bays most beautiful tributaries, the Choptank River.

Year Purchased: 1993
About the owner: Don and Janice Shreve live in Easton, MD. Don is a licensed contractor, and Janice works from home for a music clearance company. Our son, Dylan loves the Tilghman house, and we enjoy staying there at times to fish, crab and enjoy the beautiful views.
Why the Owner Chose Tilghman Island, MD, USA:
The property has been in the family for several generations. Previously, there was a modular home on the property, and as a child, Don's family spent their summers at that home when he was growing up. Don's parents had the current home built when they retired in 1993. Don and Janice recently bought out his sister's share of the home because we want to keep the home in the Shreve family and one day retire there ourselves, and eventually pass it on to our son, Dylan.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are kayaks and crab traps for rent on site, and the home has a horseshoe pit, dart board and ping pong table for family fun.
