4 BD, 3BA, (Sleeps 10) with Paddle boards, Kayaks, Canoe, and Sailboat
Sandy Pines, with its own private waterfront, dock, and swimming pool, offers a peaceful retreat within the quiet natural beauty of the Chesapeake Bay region. The very private home, sited on broad navigable Harris Creek, enjoys stunning sunset views across the Chesapeake tributary, and is fully-equipped and furnished for a restful family vacation.
We provide two SUP ATX standup paddle boards, two kayaks, one canoe, and a Sunfish sailboat unlike any other rental in this area!
Sandy Pines features four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. One of the bedrooms and baths is in a separate wing of the house, so that families can offer guests or relatives some privacy. Two families can comfortably share the home with comfort. The home features a screened-in porch, a renovated kitchen, a spacious dining room with water views, a living room, and a stunning high volume Bay room with views across Harris Creek. A piano makes for an added musical treat at the shore!
The home is on 3 acres tucked against a quiet cove, which allows for great kayaking, canoeing, sailing, fishing, and crabbing. A pine grove along the shoreline is a shady retreat with hammocks and furnishings to watch sunsets. The dock, with 2 ft MLW, offers pilings for tying up a small boat.
The waterfront area is perfect for reading and enjoying the views on Harris Creek. Your mornings will be filled with the sounds of waterfowl, and you will observe the bounty of Chesapeake wildlife during your stay. Heron, swan, and eagles all visit the area with regularity.
Sandy Pines is less than a two-hours from Washington, D.C. and three hours from Philadelphia and is located in the village of Bozman, five miles from St. Michaels, Maryland. You can walk 5 minutes to the fishing village of Neavitt, which has a playground, park, post office, and deep water boat launch. St. Michaels, Maryland and nearby Oxford, Easton, and Tilghman Island offer great cultural attractions, museums, antiques, artisans to make your stay complete.

We rented and then purchased this beautiful home and cherish it as a place to gather, and to be refreshed and renewed! This continues a tradition for this property. We offer this treasured place for family vacations, and 50% of our families are returning vacationers.
Owner purchased this House in 2012
Why Owner chose Talbot County
We loved the quiet peaceful feeling of the property, the natural beauty, and its proximity to town (St Michaels). Our two young children love the pool, outdoor area, and experiencing the creek. It's a great setting for enjoying the water in your favorite way: crabbing, fishing, paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, etc.
What makes this House unique
A feeling that you have been away from the metropolitan area, that you breathe fresh air, see so many stars at night, and slip out onto the water whenever you choose!

Lovely, Fun and Relaxing!
Sandy Pines was excellent value for a relaxing and fun weekend getaway. The house was clean and well kept - just remember to bring bug spray!
Girls Weekend 2017
This was our 6th girl's weekend, but our first in this home. Immaculate, spacious, beautiful, majestic--we had a blast! Kitchen fully functional, beautiful and spacious living/eating areas, bathrooms, bedrooms and roomy closets. Great outside pool, deck, dock and the most awesome sunsets--we did not want to leave!
Beautiful Home with LOADS of amenities!
I wasn't sure whether I wanted to spend more time indoors or out in this home. The views are nothing short of spectacular and the four kids loved the pool, fishing and crabbing as well as the paddle boards and kayak! Grown ups loved the hammocks and kid entertainment! The house is well stocked including a spacious kitchen, lovely large dining table that fit all 7 of us easily, and lots of space to read and nap. Only complaint would be the bugs and a number of spider webs indoors rather than out but this happens in the woods and water! Nothing we couldn't handle! Would definitely love to rent again!
Relaxing, fun family vacation
Our family enjoyed a wonderful vacation. We loved the pool and the view from the pool, as we looked out at the water, was spectacular. We kayaked, canoed, paddle boarded, caught crabs, swam, and had great fun!! When we got tired, we slept on the hammocks. The home is equipped with everything you need to enjoy the Eastern Shore!! Thanks to the owners for sharing this beautiful home with our family. We don't want to say too much, because we want it to be available to rent next year.
A lovely country retreat
We love all the greenery at Sandy Pines: the large lot and the view through the pine trees to Harris Creek waters, especially at sunset.
We always hold a family reunion here, and the pool and wonderful water equipment mean that all the children and adults have fun together. It's a very special day. And the well-equipped kitchen and large dining table make eating together easy! We hope to return next year.
Third trip here!
This is our third time staying at Sandy Pines. Each visit has been different re:weather and each time we still love it here! This trip we had some warm sunny days and some chillier overcast days, but there is so much to do here. The hot days are perfect for this pool. Cooler days we took advantage of the bikes and all the kayaks/canoe. Rainy day was perfect to sit on the screened in porch and play games and read. It's a very comfortable house that truly feels welcoming and like home. The layout is perfect for large families or for multiple families to share. The provision of sheets and towels this time around really was a nice benefit that we appreciated. Can't wait to come back again next year!
