About Dianna or Russell
My husband and I were first introduced to the eastern shore by very good friends in 2000. We fell in love and purchased a boat, then a bigger boat, then a house, then a bigger house. We are there almost every weekend of the year. The house we live in now is just around the corner from this property. We have been married for 30+ years, have 2 girls, 2 son-in-laws and 1 grandchild so far. Both of us grew up in Delaware county, PA
Dianna or Russell purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Dianna or Russell chose Kent County
This was the first home we bought on the eastern shore and I just cannot part with it. It is the perfect place for privacy, serenity, & relaxation. There are so many things to do between Chestertown & Rock Hall. There is always a festival or craft fair, waterman's days, Pirate's weekend(picture), Tea party, the best fireworks & some of the best restaurants in the area. We have had annual tenants for the last 4 years but, this year we wanted to try weekly rentals so that our children could have a place to stay occasionally. I know that you will fall in love with it just as we did.
What makes this Cottage unique
I remember how we used to go down to the dock with some snacks and a cool drink, watch the sun go down, watch all the wild life( ospry's ,eagles etc.), and feel completely alone with nature. Only during the winter months can you even see the property across the marsh. On any clear night, there are millions of stars in the sky. You can even see the milky way on occasion. The Legion occasionally has events but they are few and far between and always over by 10pm. You can have camp fires, bar-b-ques, and sit in a swing and melt the everyday stress away. There is large catfish in the creek. Crabs make their way up the creek around mid Sept. The water is nice and deep at the end of the dock so, your feet never touch the muddy bottom. Plenty of water fowl all year long.

Cozy Country Cottage
We had a top notch family weekend getaway, complete with Harry Potter experiences! The kids enjoyed catching a variety of fish (catfish, rock, eel) and a painted turtle! I got to sit back, relax, and read a book while they were fishing! And we all enjoyed the fire pit and smores! GREAT WEEKEND!!!
We loved having you as our guest and we hope that you will stay with us the next time you are in town. Next year's HPFestival promises to be bigger and better.
Russ & Dianna
I stayed here with my family for a last minute weekend getaway. It was very homey and clean. We enjoyed the backyard and had some fun with the outdoor bench and swing. Being on the water made it that much better, so we took advantage and went on a nice little kayaking trip. We (for my family) lucked out with getting decent thunderstorms each night. Was beautiful scenery in this peaceful and quiet location. Still close to town! Would definitely book again! Very kind and accommodating! :)
We have stayed here several times over the past couple of years, as a short family vacation and have enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend to anyone looking to explore the Chester River.
comfortable, peaceful respite
Property was perfect little oasis for our July 4th retreat. Plenty of room and everything updated. Owners were very responsive. Would definitely return.
Lazy day by the creek
This was a perfect location for us, near family and yet our own mini get away. We had dinner in Chestertown, spent a day on the dock by the creek, and had family time. The house was very comfortable and our greyhound had plenty of areas to take on a walk.
Stayed here over a weekend this September. Perfect location, quiet street, large yard with firepit and dock, took advantage of it all. House was clean, had everything needed, owner was nice and very accommodating. recommended highly
We loved having you guys again this year and we look forward to seeing you next time you are in town.
