Over the bay bridge yet a world away. Come relax in this designer furnished home set up to meet everyone's expectations. Extremely well laid out floor plan with two very large family rooms that are on either side of the kitchen with bar. This waterfront home captures water views from every window, yet the best place is the very large screened in porch, just over the pool, which has dinner seating for 6, large sofa, love seat, and chair with ottomon. Just outside of the porch lies a huge deck which extends the entire length of the house where there is another large table and chairs to enjoy dinner overlooking the pool and bay. Three large bedrooms upstairs (2 with kings, and one with 2 doubles), 2 bathrooms (one with king bed and one full bath shared but not connected). On the main floor is a very large bedroom which has three full walls of windows overlooking the bay. Once an office, it has been made into the favorite bedroom of the home, though is not connected to the bathroom. There are three gas fireplaces, 2 in the two family rooms and one in the main bedroom. This home is set up and designed to entertain. There is a wine refrigerator, bar, centrally located kitchen and multiple doors leading to the porch and deck. There is bathroom access off of the pool on the main level. The dock is 150 feet with a large gathering area where you can crab, fish, or run and jump off! There are mooring areas for boats as well as two kayaks (one double, one single). The large pool is a favorite area for children and those who enjoy cooling off in the hot St. Michael's summers. While our restaurants are wonderful, we have a large gas fired grill and fully equipped kitchen for those who want to stay home. Our record crab harvest from the traditional string, net, and child sportsman is 61 crabs in one afternoon! Our home has provided loving and lasting memories for our family and friends and is now open for you to create yours.

We are a couple with two children who purchased this home in 2003 to provide an experience we could not get in the city. We continue to use the home but as our kids have gotten older it is more difficult to take full advantage of this beautiful place due to sport commitments, etc. We have lovingly and painstakingly designed the garden, the garden house, rebuilt the dock, added lights and accessories to the pool and pool area, and have spent many hours and much money decorating it so that when we come here it is truly special. We are looking for renters who share the same values as we do in taking care of our home as you would your own. In return, we leave it fully furnished so that all you need to bring is a tooth brush and change of clothes. Our kitchen is stocked with every possible pan, serving platter, napkin, wine opener, fine wine glasses, drink glasses, blenders......you name it. Our bathrooms having every amenity, and there are plenty of pool towels so that no car needs to arrive carrying extra towels, pillows, utensils or toilet paper! We have never rented our home and this will be our first venture into the market.

St. Michael's is a magical place for people of all ages. While it is not the beach, it's beauty is that it is not the beach. The home is 50 feet from the water so the calmness and beauty are there for everyone who enjoys the water. This town is charming, safe, and full of something for everyone. We felt this location would serve us well over time and will be the place where we retire.
Unique benefits this property offers are the beauty of the water, the peace that comes with privacy, and the beauty of the brightest stars you have ever seen! The newly planted garden provide the freshest vegetables you cannot even get at the farmer's market. Our waterfront is extremely private and the view from the water on the kayak is unparalleled. There is nothing better than fishing all day, coming by water up to your own back yard, and cooking your catch for all to enjoy.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at this home. The property has beautiful views and is very well cared for. The house itself has an amazing downstairs that works well for a large family gathering. It's elegant but cozy at the same time. The bedrooms were comfortable. We loved the porches and dock and enjoyed kayaking as well. The house is about 3.5 miles from town. Wonderful place!!
Exceptional home! We could not have been more pleased with the location and how comfortable this home was. Kari was excellent to work with and went out of her way to make our stay pleasant. We enjoyed kayaking, biking and hanging out on the screened in porch and in the pool. You will not be disappointed when renting this property. Very clean and well-equipped.
What an absolutely perfect week! It was our first time in St. Michaels and we will definitely be back. The house is absolutely stunning...beautifully decorated and equipped with every amenity and necessity. It was sparkling clean as well. Comfortable beds, close to town, lovely lawns and we just lived in the pool, on the screen porch and in the kayaks. I will definitely rent again and highly recommend!!
I cannot recommend more highly this lovely property, even nicer in person than in photos. The location is perfect, and the setting amazing. The house is decorated beautifully and is so comfortable for a family vacation. Kari is the perfect host....she left us fresh flowers and even set up our holiday dinner table in advance of our arrival. You will not be disappointed if you are lucky enough to rent this property.
We rented for a long weekend for my family. The house was equipped with everything we needed. The pool and kayaks were enjoyed by everyone and the screened in porch was great for relaxing after the kids went to bed. We will definitely rent again!
We could not have asked for a better property for our family celebration! Between the fishing, crabbing, kayaking and rock crawling + the large yard and pool, the five children stayed busy the entire time. The house layout and the well-equipped kitchen really made it feel like a welcoming, family home - we would love to return!
