Property description

The cottage, surrounded by beautiful flower gardens and plantings is within walking distance of practically everything the island has to offer, including a local organic vegetable stand with fresh country eggs, several restaurants, notably the cafe, Two if By Sea, a must for breakfast.Also Bay Hundred Restaurant,,Harrison's Chesapeake House Restaurant and our market, the Tilghman Island Country Store. Dogwood Harbor, with a public boat ramp, is a short walk or drive and Fairbank's Bait and Tackle, near the famous Knapps Narrows bridge, is an easy walk, too.

Tilghman has remained a slow paced island with lots of history and lore centered around a community of Waterman who have made their living from the Chesapeake Bay for over 100 years.The local Waterman's Museum is a great way to gain knowledge about the island and the generations of folks who live there. It is an ideal get away for down time to relax the body, mind & spirit. Opportunities for boating, fishing, crabbing, biking, kayaking, sea glass hunting and more await you. The local residents are a friendly bunch and a treasure trove of information. Historical St. Michaels is just 15 miles away with many restaurants, shopping, and the must-see Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.

The Hard Head Cottage, named for the local fish 'hard head' or croaker and the two hard head's that own the cottage, is a comfortable place to call home for a weekend, a week or a month. It has a large living room, fully equipped kitchen, dining room, den, two bedrooms each with a queen sized bed, and a full bath with tub and shower. A large backyard offers a picnic table and grill providing lots of outdoor space to enjoy.A large driveway will accommodate several cars, boat and trailer. The cottage has air conditioning, a washer and dryer, a DVD player and TV with local channels.There are several adult bikes on site for use.

You will find this cottage a unique and welcoming home away from home, and we feel certain if you come once, you will soon be back again!

Owner info

About the owner: Captain Randolph Murphy grew up on Tilghman Island as did his parents and their parents! He and his family have been waterman and local waterfowl guides for many generations. His wife, Ann Fegan, from nearby Sherwood went to Tilghman Elementary school along with Randolph. Tilghman is home for them but travel, work, and other interests have taken them away. They feel it is logical to use their home as a rental during the months they are not there. Lots of interesting art from their travels are on the walls as well as local folk art and the cottage exudes good energy with lots of fun color and whimsy.

Why the Owner Chose Tilghman Island, MD, USA:
The cottage originally belonged to Randolph's grandmother, the infamous 'Miss Lil.' Mention her name to an older local and they will know who you mean. Randolph and Ann struck a deal to purchase the cottage when Miss Lil turned 96 and could no longer manage it alone.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage and the property it sits on is always complimented by folks passing by. People often stop just to see the flower gardens. The cottage is in the middle of Tilghman and central to everything. Phillips Wharf, an educational environmental center is nearby. There is access to a small boat ramp at Dogwood Harbor and the Skipjack Fleet. One is available for a short informational sail. The Lady Patty docked at Bay Hundred Restaurant is also a great opportunity to sail on the Bay while Capt. Jeffrey Mathias does all the work.
