About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

This Chesapeake Bay cabin is located high atop a cliff overlooking the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. Enjoy amazing sunrises from inside the house, where there is an entire wall of Anderson windows overlooking the bay, or sit outside in one of our comfortable Adirondack chairs. Enjoy long walks hunting fossils on the sand beach, known to be one of the best locations in the world for searching for Miocene era fossils, including shark's teeth. Take a swim in the quiet community pool or play some tennis on one of 2 tennis courts available. Watch the resident Bald Eagles fly by and feed on the fish of the bay.
There is one upstairs bedroom with a queen bed and a small closet. There is an additional downstairs bedroom with a queen bed, and a bathroom attached (no closet). An additional room has 2 twin beds (no closet). Maximum of 6 people. Canoe, kayaks and beach chairs available for use. New galley style kitchen with granite countertops and a pass through to the dining area. Brand new custom tiled bathroom with gorgeous glass walled shower on upper level.
Immediately adjacent to the community is a land trust with lots of trails. There are breathtaking views everywhere and lots of birds and wildlife. The cabin also sits just at the border of a nature preserve, Parker's Creek where as of 2015 there were confirmed Bald Eagles nesting. The preserve is open only by appointment but you can use our boats to explore the area by water.
*Please note- we do not allow hosting of parties or additional guests. The maximum number of guests is 6- There is a maximum of 2 cars permitted and additional vehicles will be towed. This a very tight knit community and we are serious about respecting everyone's wishes for peace and privacy.
*no washer/dryer however, there is a laundromat in town/please bring your own sheets/towels.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: I was lucky enough to grow up in this beautiful community and had many adventures exploring the Chesapeake Bay and the surrounding forests in the neighborhood. It was a dream come true when we were able to buy a vacation home in the neighborhood... We hope that we can share the magic of it with other travelers and nature lovers looking for a peaceful, comfortable place to visit!

Why the Owner Chose Port Republic, MD, USA:
The view says it all....

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
It is truly unique to be waterfront, but also surrounded by a lush, heavily forested area (forever protected by a land trust!) Eagles are commonplace and wildlife is everywhere in this environmentally conscientious community. Our cabin is just 3 homes away from the border of a local nature preserve which you can use our canoe to explore.
