Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend it was! An overflow of our family stayed at the cottage who were in town for the wedding and a great time was had by all. After the formal wedding and reception, we all went back to the cottage to relax and unwind. The cottage is a beautiful home, fully equipped, comfortable beds and cozy atmosphere. We continued the celebration all weekend long while fishing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing and of course meeting the llama was a highlight for both kids and adults. There was something for everyone. Wonderful family memories were made that weekend that we will cherish forever. Already checking our calendars to see when we can come back!

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 4 adults and 5 children, ages 2 to 7. We all fit comfortably in this lovely cottage. The kitchen is fully equipped with every utensil. Although the cottage is in a remote setting surrounded by beautiful farmlands, you are actually only 10-15 mins away from Centerville where you can pick up anything you need. The cottage belongs to the owners of the farm who live up the road and they were very accommodating, even welcoming us with a gallon of water incase we did not like the taste of tap water (which has a minerally taste). He warned us about ticks in the high grass but we never had any problems. We did see 2 small snakes and jellyfish but that is expected for this area. None of the kids were harmed by the snakes but one child was stung by a jellyfish so get out of the water before 6pm and keep vinegar handy. There was vinegar at the house so that's how fully equipped it was. There were also various water vessels for us to use (canoe, kayak, boogie board, SUP paddle board) and enough life jackets for everyone, even the toddler. The beach area is very shallow making it perfect for kids to splash quite a far distance from the shore. It's a naturally formed beach with trees for shade. You felt like you were on a deserted island. An additional bonus was how welcoming the owners are. Doug brought a llama for the kids to see and welcomed us to his farm when we went for a little walk. Each person had an absolutely amazing time and everyone wanted to stay longer.

GREAT BIRTHDAY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

Met our friends here for my hubby's b-day. We spent 3 awesome days relaxing and recharging. The hospitality was over the top! We had a dock and place to launch the boat just steps away from the cottage. Cottage was cozy and comfortable and fully equipped for cooking. The view was breathtaking and sunsets... WOW!!!! The visit from the host and one of his llamas was a highlight of the trip!! We enjoyed our time so much we can't wait to come back!!!!

Relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

Very secluded, relaxing get away. Very clean and comfortable all the comforts of home. Beautiful view of the water and fantastic sunsets. Canoeing on the water was enjoyed by all. Would highly recommend, our group ranged from a 3 year old to an 86 year old, and we all had a great time.

Great Upper Eastern Shore location

  • 5 of 5

The house was well supplied and comfortable. Very private, quiet location and with great access to paddling and boating on the Chester River. The kids really enjoyed walks to see the llamas. The owners were very accommodating. Great family weekend getaway carving pumpkins. Fishing is great in October.

Perfect summer weekend

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect place for a fun group weekend and made my birthday unforgettable. The dock and lake access were the key feature, but everything about it was ideal. We had a lot of fun using the kayaks and all the games, and the deck was great for a large group to enjoy dinner together. The owners were so sweet and even brought the llamas around for a visit! Couldn't have been better. One great feature was not having to start cleaning and packing first thing Sunday morning, which is often the case at similar properties, so it felt like we got to enjoy an extra day.
