About the Property

A perfect retreat for those looking to get away from it all or nature lovers

Another great property from Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals!

A world away from it all - Hoopers' Island is actually comprised of three islands with authentic working watermen villages. The main island was allegedly bought from the Indians in exchange for blankets, what a deal huh? No bartering for anything needed once you arrive, Bay Water Cottage is wonderfully appointed and breathes with beautiful contemporary and organic architecture. We love the shade trees, the huge water views, the individual bedroom balconies, the deck and private dock – fab for fishing and crabbing. If you like to paddle – check it out – 3 kayaks and a canoe provided for guests. Look closely at the exterior photos and you will get a glimpse of your own island/sand bar on which to relax. Envision paddling a picnic lunch, cooler and blanket over to your sand bar and spending the day swimming and soaking in the sun. Paddle back should your refreshments dwindle. At day’s end store your boats and relax dockside drinking in the sunset views, grabbing a game of ping pong and grilling out. Exploring the Blackwater Refuge or the Harriet Tubman trail are at your doorstep but you may want to simply paddle the day away outside your backdoor.

Ocean City

One of the oldest towns in Maryland, this small town sits on the banks of the Choptank River. About an hour from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, Dorchester County boasts famous residents such as Harriet Tubman, the most famous of Underground Railroad 'conductors' who led dozens of enslaved people to freedom, and Sharpshooter Annie Oakley. Also, more Maryland governors are from this area than any other with the exception of Baltimore City! Explore Cambridge and surrounding Dorchester County's long history as an agricultural and canning powerhouse, and their boatbuilding and maritime heritage—there are several self-guided walking tours, driving tours, river excursions and museums to help you experience the stories and history. Called the 'Heart of Chesapeake Country' because of it's location and shape, there are 1700 miles of shoreline surrounding 39 percent of Maryland's wetlands in the area, providing endless opportunities for kayaking, biking, and exploring.
