About Loretta & Ty Parson

My husband and I built this Waterfront home 18 years ago.We have 2 grown children and we enjoy spending quality time with extended families and friends. We love boating and the peacefulness of the area without the crowds.

Loretta & Ty Parson purchased this house in 1998

Why Loretta & Ty Parson chose Worton

We have family friends on Still Pond and we learned to waterski here as young adults. It is a wonderful place for our family and friends to come together and enjoy the water sports and play games late into the evenings.

What makes this house unique

Still Pond Creek is connected to the Chesapeake Bay for easy access to the largest estuary in the world! The 'creek' is a smaller, protected body of water with no jellyfish, which makes for fantastic for Kayaking, water skiing, tubing, fishing, etc. If you have a boat you can tie up to our floating dock on this property.

I love sitting on the deck and enjoying the beauty and peacefulness of Still Pond.

There are many shops, Antique stores,Art galleries and restaurants to explore in Chestertown and Rock Hall. It's fantastic area to visit.

Come with your family and friends and enjoy this Beautiful Waterfront property and explore the area to see all that the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay has to offer!

Wonderful and relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing long weekend with our extended family. The house is spacious and easily had room for 6 adults and 4 children(12, 8,4 and 10 months old) -with room to spare. The kitchen is well appointed with especially great pots and pans and knives. We thoroughly enjoyed the deck and the fire pit. Great house and great location to chill out and enjoy time together.

Chesapeake Fun

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a beautiful week at this lovely home on Still Pond. The house was clean and comfortable and decorated to make you feel at home. The back deck was a perfect spot for tea or coffee in the morning while watching hummingbirds at the feeder. The backyard was big with large trees that provided shade during the heat of the day. The kids and some adults had fun on the tree swing and everyone enjoyed smores made at the fire pit. The dock was the perfect size for our 21ft boat which we went out on everyday. Just up the water, right where it hits the bay, is a Bald Eagle's nest. We sat on the boat watching the adults teaching the juvies how to catch fish. There are lots of Osprey, too. We didn't have much success fishing because the tides were not cooperative but we had fun anyway!! We saw deer, a skink (the lizard) on the wood pile, and lots of little critters at the water's edge. Loretta and Ty are wonderful to work with, they take great pride in their property and it certainly shows.

Great getaway for young families!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I took our two little boys (ages 3 & 6 months) for our first 'family vacation' to the bay house for a week getaway, & it was AMAZING!!! We loved every minute of it. The bay house really was perfect for our young family and the R&R we were seeking. Every part of the house was filled with beautiful, homey decor that made us feel 'at home,' from the very beginning. The views were incredible, and the windows throughout the first floor allowed us to enjoy the scenery from the moment we woke up! We spent hours on the bench out back, as our boys played in the beautiful yard, and also swinging on the bench on the deck after dinner. We loved the dock and little sand area right in the backyard too! The boys enjoying playing in the bay water right on the bank. We took some day trips to the local town which was beautiful and relaxing as well, and enjoyed the beach which was also not too crowded, so perfect for us. Our parents came to visit for one of the days and were blown away with the house/views etc and had a blast with us. We cooked in, ate out, watched movies, played games, walked around the neighborhood and enjoyed the water. We would recommend this vacation to really anyone looking for a peaceful, beautiful, (and if you are up for it, exciting) family getaway! Now we just have to return when the boys are older and we can take them out on the boats, kayak etc! Thank you TY & Loretta!

Wonderful time on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a little guys weekend away and we could not have been more pleased with the result. The house was gorgeous. Spent a lot of time on the attached deck grilling out, around the fire pit in the backyard and in the water. It was a beautiful weekend and we enjoyed every minute of the house.

Will definitely be looking into taking the families back to enjoy some peace and quiet in the Maryland countryside!

Thanks Loretta and Ty for opening up your amazing house to us!

Friend Reunion, Wonderful Time!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, I highly recommend this place to anyone wishing to stay on the Chesapeake! This place is beautiful with a large kitchen/living room area that opens onto a deck, all with many windows to take advantage of the natural light! (Our weather was quite beautiful during Memorial Day weekend.) The couple who rents this house out are extremely easy to work with! They were so nice and helpful, making this a very memorable weekend. We would definitely rent from them again!!
