About the property

Waterfront Home with 3.5 Acres, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Whether you are planning a quiet, relaxing vacation or an active getaway that includes water sports and numerous other outdoor activities, you will have the best of both worlds with this modern, spacious home that includes many desired amenities.

This property is located adjacent to St. Michaels, a picturesque harbor town on Maryland's Eastern Shore that was named one of the top 10 best small coastal towns in America by USA Today. This private, waterfront home has four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. It boasts all the amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel and more, including high quality linens and towels, a gourmet kitchen with multiple refrigerators for convenient entertaining, a dining room that seats 10, a living room with a wood burning fireplace, an enclosed porch, a screened in deck with a hot tub and warming hut, premium cable from May through November, two washer and dryers, Wi-Fi and a Graco Pack n Play.

Unwind by curling up with a good book on the enclosed porch, spend time watching the abundant birds and wildlife in the back yard using the wild bird spotting scope, or enjoy the views from the hot tub located on the screened in deck with an adjacent private warming hut. Take a quiet walk in the wildlife sanctuary just minutes from the house or take advantage of the available bikes for a ride on one of the many area bike trails. Spend time enjoying the view on the ferry to Oxford to watch a spectacular sunset.

For those early morning risers, a cup of coffee and a beautiful sunrise viewed from the dock is the start of a beautiful day. If a nap is in order, you can lounge in the LLBean hammock and let the soft summer breeze and sounds of the water lapping at the water’s edge lull you to sleep.

For the sports enthusiasts we have a boat slip for sailing, with a boat ramp less than a mile from our home. You can rent or bring your own boat to set sail on the Chesapeake. Run your toes through the sand on the small beach area where you can easily launch the two available kayaks and challenge your opponent to a race. Grab the fishing poles and crab traps to use off the dock, so you can bring home the freshest fish/crab dinner you’ve ever had along with bragging rights. Take a spin on one of the (4) adult bikes and (1) child's bike on the many biking trails or in the wildlife sanctuaries. Head to Tilghman Island, a 15 minute drive, where you can rent water skis, pontoon boats, sailboats and paddle boards. Take advantage of the many premier public golf courses in the area. As the sun sets on another perfect day on the Eastern Shore, you can play a game of volleyball followed by a splash in the hot tub.

If you desire a night on the town, St. Michaels is a short 10 minute drive. Dine on the water at the Crab Claw or Town Dock restaurants or visit the St. Michaels Winery & Brewery. In the summer, enjoy concerts at the Chesapeake Maritime Museum and visit the many shops and arts & crafts exhibits. In December, enjoy “Christmas in St. Michaels”. Football fans can enjoy Navy football with Annapolis an hour away.

We would be more than happy to help organize your trip to ensure that you have an unforgettable stay. We’ve been on VRBO for more than five years and have numerous five star reviews. We are committed to ensuring that you have a great stay!

Like staying in a 5-star hotel, but better

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in April 2017 with two families (four adults, four kids) and it was exactly as described, if not better. The house is spotless, well appointed and designed so everything is oriented to the wonderful water view. The master bedroom suite has a gorgeous view, gas fireplace, deep jacuzzi tub and shower with steambath. Need I say more? The hot tub worked great. The house is set back from the road, so it's perfectly quiet. We'd love to go back!

Loved it.....again

Our second find visit to Snug Cove! A chilly April weekend but took advantage of the hot tub and the fireplace. We are already planning to going back this summer.

A beautiful comfortable home in a quiet location, not far from great shopping & dining!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house! We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend. We loved the big kitchen, wood burning fireplace, hot tub, comfortable bedrooms, wonderful views of the water, and just a short drive to Saint Michaels for shopping, dining, and fun! We are already planning our stay for 2019. There were seven adults staying at the house and we all didn't want to leave.

Jackie was so nice and helpful with all the planning ahead! Thank you again for all your help.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you and the girls chose our home for your post Christmas vacation and we hope this is the first of many vacations with us because you were so much fun to work with and we genuinely appreciate all your wonderful ideas. It is nice to hear that you and the girls enjoyed cooking and spending time in our spacious kitchen and sitting by the fire on a cold winter's night to stay warm and cozy while enjoying the wonderful water views of the creek behind our house and had a chance to drive the short distance to St. Michaels to enjoy some shopping, dining and hanging out together. Of course, the best compliment of all is that you didn't want to leave, there is nothing better than that. Take care and enjoy what remains of a very chilly winter and we hope to hear from you in the not too distant future that you will be staying with us again.

This house is amazing! It is large and open. The view is simply breath taking. It was very clean.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I frequently travel together. We have been all over the world. This house rivals some of the 5 star hotels in which we have stayed. We were looking for a waterfront property with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. The master bedroom suite is like a spa. But all of the bedrooms are very well appointed. Also we wanted it to have a table that would seat 8 adults. Snug Cove offered all of this plus more. The family room was large enough and the working wood fireplace was a bonus. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen is provided. We have no complaints about this place and we are looking forward to renting it again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you, thank you, thank you for such a wonderful review and we are so happy to hear that you and the girls had fun and enjoyed the beautiful water views at our home, the large open floor plan, having four well appointed bedrooms all with their own private bath, the large kitchen table for all to gather and the gourmet kitchen. Coming from such a seasoned traveler this review really means a lot! It would be our absolute pleasure to have you and the gang stay with us again and we look forward to hearing from you, hopefully in the not too distant future, that you will be again vacationing on the Eastern Shore.

Wonderful and comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time spending a long weekend at Snug Cove. Everything was well organized, incredibly clean, and quite spacious. We fit 8 adults very easily, cooked and enjoyed wonderful meals with a beautiful views of the cove. The fireplace was well stocked with wood and Jackie was helpful with any questions we had. We look forward to returning.

The main body of water is the Chesapeake Bay. Major tributaries off the Choptank River are Broad Creek, the Miles River and Leadenham Creek. All have very safe waters for power craft with 3 feet or less of draft. Waterways run from 5 to 20 feet of depth. There is great crabbing and fishing in these waters.
